    Some Folks Have a Command Of The Language

    This one sentence editorial appeared in the Peoria Journal Star . . . . .

    "A pen in the hand of this president is far more dangerous than a gun in the hands of 200 million law-abiding citizens."

    Then Clint Eastwood added his words . . . . .

    "We Americans are so tired of being thought of as dumbasses by the rest of the world that we went to the polls this past November and removed all doubt." ......... Clint Eastwood --

    I love that first one. Succinct and accurate.

    The first one is great and the second one pretty well sums it up.
    It may be that your sole purpose in life is simply to serve as a warning to others.

    My son was on the security detail for the RNC and said, despite what the media presented, Eastwood's presentation was hilarious.

    Short, succinct and directly to the point on both.

    I think Clint summed it up pretty well.

    That would pretty well coincide with my views on the matter.

    I'm just proud to say I was not one of the hot dog franks that voted for the Moron in Chief.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    Well kids I've liked-shot-owned guns for quite a few years. Wanna hear something kinda weird? Most of my favorite guns are Class III weapons and outta my league or price range or they would be classed as Destructive Devices like the M 79 and RPG.

    But about the strangest thing is fairly recently it is now legal for a regular (WA resident) non LEO type guy like me to buy/own a suppressor or one of those boss Rem 870 2+1's. Unfortunately a 2+1 12G would be around a grand w/holster/scabbard, tax and ATF malarkey. I just flat out refuse to deal w/F Troop.

    So...as usual I'm between a rock and a hard place. But it's cool...I know everyone here.
