Back in the mid 90's my wife and I were staying at a relatives house in Memphis during New Years. Just prior to midnight a mixture of firecrackers and gunfire started. We'd already gone to bed, but I easily recognized the gunfire. About that time my wife said " that's a lot of firecrackers going off". I told her that it wasn't firecrackers, and I could tell she tried to get a bit lower in the mattress.
Turn the election's in 2014 to a "2A Revolution". It will serve as a 1994 refresher not to "infringe" on our Second Amendment. We know who they are now.........SEND 'EM HOME. Our success in this will be proportional to how hard we work to make it happen.
What goes up must come down was driven home for me when I was a child. My father a neighbor and I were in the back yard the neighbor a county deputy had brought a new revolver for my father to look at. I dont remember what caliber only that it was a large caliber in those days.
The deputy shot a can placed against a heavy wooden feed trough. He hit the can, we walked over looked at the trough saw the graze inside it then walked to his car. It was a suprizingly long time my dad and I standing on one side of his car him on the other talking over the roof of it as he prepared to depart when BANG, the bullet came down hitting the center of his car roof knocking a good sized dent. I never forgot that and it makes me nervous when ever I see someone shoot into the air like that though its done here all the time.
My brother just moved to our little town from the big metro area. He commented on New Years Day that he heard NO gun fire on New Years Eve. He said usually in the metro it sounds like a "war zone". I sure don't miss that kind of stupidity.
What part of "gravity" don't these simpletons understand??

A armed society is a polite society. Manners are good when one has to back it up with his life.
