    The fact that AR's(if you can get one) have doubled in price because of the actions of a lunatic and the ramblings of a few Democrats ought to infuriate every single American in this country.

    Instead, I'll get slammed for mentioning Democrats.

    The world continues to get stupider by the minute...
    I would rather stand against the cannons of the wicked than against the prayers of the righteous.

    What's a "Dempcrats"?

    You're missing an "o", you got a "t" that doesn't belong, and the "p" is not in the right spot.

    Bartender near here (Boca Raton) was shot and killed when he confronted 4 armed men robbing a busy restaurant and its customers. Anytime, anyplace.

    It's not quantity of posts that counts, it's the quality of what you write in the post that counts.

    I went to the range yesterday with my 22-yr-old daughter. She'd been wanting to go shooting with me, but was too nervous being around strangers and the loud gunfire at the indoor range where I'm a member. We managed to get our own range (separate room) and after taking a few tentative, nervous shots with my Ruger 22/45 Mark III, she was hooked. She could hardly get enough shooting in before the hour was up. Looking forward to going with her again before long.

    Here's something for Monday morning. It's been around for a couple of years but still cracks me up every time I read it:

    COURT REPORTER

    These are from a book called Disorder in the American Courts and are things people actually said in court, word for word, taken down and now published by court reporters.

    ATTORNEY: What was the first thing your husband said to you that morning?
    WITNESS: He said, 'Where am I, Cathy?'
    ATTORNEY: And why did that upset you?
    WITNESS: My name is Susan!
    ____________________________________________


    ATTORNEY: This myasthenia gravis, does it affect your memory at all?
    WITNESS: Yes.
    ATTORNEY: And in what ways does it affect your memory?
    WITNESS: I forget..
    ATTORNEY: You forget? Can you give us an example of something you forgot?
    ___________________________________________


    ATTORNEY: Now doctor, isn't it true that when a person dies in his sleep, he doesn't know about it until the
    next morning?
    WITNESS: Did you actually pass the bar exam?
    ____________________________________

    ATTORNEY: The youngest son, the 20-year-old, how old is he?
    WITNESS: He's 20, much like your IQ.
    ___________________________________________

    ATTORNEY: Were you present when your picture was taken?
    WITNESS: Are you kidding me?
    _________________________________________

    (A favorite)
    ATTORNEY: She had three children, right?
    WITNESS: Yes.
    ATTORNEY: How many were boys?
    WITNESS: None.
    ATTORNEY: Were there any girls?
    WITNESS: Your Honor, I think I need a different attorney. Can I get a new attorney?
    ____________________________________________

    ATTORNEY: How was your first marriage terminated?
    WITNESS: By death.
    ATTORNEY: And by whose death was it terminated?
    WITNESS: Take a guess.
    ____________________________________________

    ATTORNEY: Can you describe the individual?
    WITNESS: He was about medium height and had a beard
    ATTORNEY: Was this a male or a female?
    WITNESS: Unless the Circus was in town I'm going with male.
    _____________________________________

    ATTORNEY: Is your appearance here this morning pursuant to a deposition notice which I sent to your attorney?
    WITNESS: No, this is how I dress when I go to work.
    ______________________________________

    ATTORNEY: Doctor, how many of your autopsies have you performed on dead people?
    WITNESS: All of them... The live ones put up too much of a fight.
    _________________________________________

    ATTORNEY: ALL your responses MUST be oral, OK? What school did you go to?
    WITNESS: Oral...
    _________________________________________

    ATTORNEY: Do you recall the time that you examined the body?
    WITNESS: The autopsy started around 8:30 PM
    ATTORNEY: And Mr. Denton was dead at the time?
    WITNESS: If not, he was by the time I finished.
    ____________________________________________


    And last:
    (Well OK, this is the best)
    ATTORNEY: Doctor, before you performed the autopsy, did you check for a pulse?
    WITNESS: No.
    ATTORNEY: Did you check for blood pressure?
    WITNESS: No.
    ATTORNEY: Did you check for breathing?
    WITNESS: No.
    ATTORNEY: So, then it is possible that the patient was alive when you began the autopsy?
    WITNESS: No.
    ATTORNEY: How can you be so sure, Doctor?
    WITNESS: Because his brain was sitting on my desk in a jar.
    ATTORNEY: I see, but could the patient have still been alive, nevertheless?
    WITNESS: Yes, it is possible that he could have been alive and practicing law
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    Or he could have been my brother-in-law.

    Ya know, growing up in the deep south I remember temps in the 30's or lower being REALLY COLD. Now that I'm all grow'ed up and working out here in Asia's frozen tundra, I don't even start to worry until the temp here get's into single digits. Anything below 0 and then my choice of layred garments gets intresting.

    My old grandpa said to me 'Son, there comes a time in every man's life when he stops bustin' knuckles and starts bustin' caps and usually it's when he becomes too old and fragile to take an ass whipin.'
    I don't carry a gun to kill people.
    I carry a gun to keep from being killed, its called an equalizer for an old man.
    I don't carry a gun to scare people.
    I carry a gun because sometimes this world can be a scary place.
    I don't carry a gun because I'm paranoid.
    I carry a gun because there are real threats in the world.
    I don't carry a gun because I'm evil.
    I carry a gun because I have lived long enough to see the evil in the world.
    I don't carry a gun because I hate the government.
    I carry a gun because I understand the limitations of government.
    I don't carry a gun because I'm angry.
    I carry a gun so that I don't have to spend the rest of my life hating myself for failing to be prepared.
    I don't carry a gun because I want to shoot someone.
    I carry a gun because I want to die at a ripe old age in my bed, and not on a sidewalk somewhere tomorrow afternoon.
    I don't carry a gun because I'm a cowboy.
    I carry a gun because, when I die and go to heaven, I want to be a cowboy.
    I don't carry a gun to make me feel like a man.
    I carry a gun because men know how to take care of themselves and the ones they love.
    I don't carry a gun because I feel inadequate.
    I carry a gun because unarmed and facing three armed thugs, I am inadequate.
    I don't carry a gun because I love it.
    I carry a gun because I love life and the people who make it meaningful to me.
    Police protection is an oxymoron.
    Free citizens must protect themselves.
    Police do not protect you from crime, they usually just investigate the crime after it happens and then call someone in to clean up the mess.
    I carry a gun because God gave me the Right to do so; it is inalienable.
