    Never did care for Boston much, my father claimed the state of Mass wasn't really part of the USA but then he was noted as an opinionated old cuss....

    Me, I do have some fond memories of some travels in SC.

    Like with some other examples - hard to believe two places are on the same continent - and supposedly living under the same set of rules.

    The constitution of course.

    So true on it being hard to believe the two places are on the same continent. I'd sure like to go to that little gun shop.

    I have never left anything in boston or the whole mess of mass since I have never been there nor do I wish to go there. On the other hand Small Town America has my vote every time. The gun shop in SC is not the only place like it in the US of A. Thank God for Rural America.

    And, of course, the crime rate is so much lower in Mass. than in S.C., precisely because of the stringent Mass. policies toward firearms. And blood is running in the streets in S.C., right?

    No, no, no.............You can lead a horse to water, but you can't make him drink.

    Actually, Randy, I like your version better!


    When you’re wounded and left on Afghanistan’s plains,
    And the women come out to cut up what remains,
    Just roll to your rifle and blow out your brains,
    And go to your God like a soldier.
