    There was an Aussie or New Zealand (can't remember which one now) SAS officer who was wounded in a fight in Afghanistan. He tied himself to the front of a vehicle so as not to get anybody exposed picking him up and continued to return fire as they backed him out of the area.

    Gun control isn't about guns...it's about control. It also makes criminals out of otherwise law abiding citzens.

    Great pic, even if it's a mock up.

    A little off topic but related;

    If you haven't read "Lone Survivor" yet, put it at the top of your to do list.

    Marcus Luttrell's description of the actions of his SEAL team brothers will have you in tears and jumping up and down yelling HOORAH! at the top of your lungs simultaneously.

    One of the best books I've read to date.

    I just got that book from the library. I seen the preview to the movie and I thought, "I meant to read that book". 10 minutes later it's on the kindle. I don't know if this is a duh moment but those are not real people in that photo it seems it was for a film or something
