    You know, it almost sounds plausible.

    That's not funny.
    There are two sides to every issue: one side is right and the other is wrong, but the middle is always evil.

    To close to the truth to be funny.

    If it weren't the truth it would be funny, only thing is you pick up any newspaper and read about it happening now.

    This is too true to be funny. I know a few folks who can attest to this ridiculousness.

    When I was in high school (class of 1972), we carried guns to school all the time. We'd hunt before and after school, school also let out for the opening day of deer season. I restocked several guns in shop class and took a pistol and shells into speech class for a demonstration speech. We also had a wild game supper every year for a fund raiser. When I was in college I kept a shotgun, a 30/06 and a .22 rifle in the dorm, never thought anything of it. Yep, times have changed and not for the better in a lot of ways.

    I do recall '68 and this is so true, frightening but true. I was great growning up in the '50's &'60's. But they are so long gone! Thanks to the liberal left!!!
