We, the People are the rightful masters of both Congress and the courts not to overthrow the Constitution, but to overthrow men who pervert the Constitution.
AMH too funny. The wheel fell off of mine last week I near shot it. I called it a day and had a beer.
I love the part at the end there... turns out shooting your mower with a shotgun voids your warranty!US man charged for shooting mower
A 56-year-old man from the Midwestern US state of Wisconsin has been arrested after shooting his lawn mower in his garden because it would not start.
Keith Walendowski was charged by police in Milwaukee with disorderly conduct and possession of a sawn-off shotgun.
He could face a fine of up to $11,000 and a maximum prison sentence of six-and-a-half years if convicted.
Police officers said Mr Walendowski had told them: "It's my lawn mower and my yard, so I can shoot it if I want."
Police found the shotgun, a handgun and a stungun, as well as ammunition, when they detained Mr Walendowski in the basement of his house.
Witnesses told police that he appeared to have been drinking.
The lawn mower was found sitting outside Mr Walendowski's house, which he shares with his mother, with the rubbish on Friday.
A local retailer said that Mr Walendowski might now have difficulty getting his lawn mower repaired.
"Anything not factory recommended would void the warranty," said Dick Wagner, of Wagner's Garden Mart in Milwaukee.
In any case, illegal shotgun + beer + shooting = no good.

"I'll tell you the truth," a criminal complaint quotes an apparently inebriated Keith Walendowski. "I got pissed because my lawn mower wouldn't start, so I got my shotgun and shot it."
I want to do that to my mower everytime I spend more than an hour trying to get the darn thing started......I just don't act on it.
"The shooting occurred Wednesday at a home Walendowski shares with his mother in the 3500 block of S. Austin St. "
Sounds to me like he needs to get out more.
Anything not factory recommended would void the warranty," he said.
