Y'all only need shotguns. Great for trap and skeet shooting which is way more fun than target shooting. The only thing for bird hunting, and, with slugs, great for big game hunting. A lot more sporting and requires learning skills for getting close.
Plus....if an intruder was in my house i know that my first choice for defense would be a shotgun.
Plus....if they were limited to single shot, all of the above would become more sporting, therefore more fun, and mass murders by gun would be a thing of the past.
Lets amend the Second Amendment and change the word "arms" to "single shot shotguns."

Norton, you are wrong. Now don't get all upset and accuse me of being a stalker, etc... but I'm pretty sure it was the daughter who was walking the dog.


then the first source I read saying it was Mr. Gifford was wrong, and I stand corrected, thank you

this new information now completely blows out of the water ANY relationship between Mr Gifford buying an assault weapon and the dog getting loose, in fact he did not own the dog

so who was the dumb fuk anyway who tried to make some kind of statement about all this?

Well, Kelly is still giving a black eye to the atronaut club... clearly.

(TGT posted the video, most likely from a pro-gun site... like patdollard where all his other "information" seems to come from... chaz and ron just jumped on for the ride)


oh, this one is great...

http://patdollard.com/2013/03/retired-army-officer-dhs-must-surrender-their-war-weapons-to-department-of-defense/

"With the massive purchases of almost 3,000 new armored vehicles (MRAPs) and 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammunition, with associated weapons, who in the U.S. do they intend to kill? Short answer: You and me! Anyone they think is standing in their way to impose a new Marxist government! Anyone who stands for the U.S. Constitution!

We must demand that our representatives (Senators and U.S. Representatives) stand firm and immediately force, by law if necessary, the DHS turn over their arsenal of war making equipment to the Department of Defense."


Personally, I don't trust the government, but I agree we must DEMAND that the government STOP this government TAKE OVER! We all know criminals don't obey laws, but that doesn't mean the government agency that is poised to take over the country in a violent Marxist revolution won't!!!

I know who Jim Carrey is, but who is Greg Gutfeld?

Googled it... he wrote "The Joy of Hate."

His website is "The Daily Gut: A Handkerchief of Hard News Soaked in a Sneeze of Thought Snot"

With riveting music reviews that any 12 year old could be proud of:

"A perfect rock album providing the perfect soundtrack to cheap 12 packs downed in a parking lot. Imagine Slayer having sex with the Polyphonic Spree in a decompression chamber, and this is what you get."

Bravo Fux News... high quality guests.

Fuking morons.

Don't you think Carrey took it a little bit far by mocking the dead and rednecks (god forbid).
But hey he got a reaction which is what he was looking for . . .

Jim Carrey for Supertopo, a perfect fit . . .

Yeah, Jim Carrey is like totally my hero.

And yeah, 5 years is too soon to make fun of a public figure who had controversial views... but when a young man dies in a tragic accident, feel free to criticize their assumed desire for instant gratification and lack of knowledge the same day the news comes out.

What?

Jim Carey?

His films have been huge hits, he has to be worth 50 million.

Like he gives a damn what anyone who disagrees with him thinks!

Like Americans are all of a sudden just not going to see his movies anymore?

yeah right, probably the opposite because by far most Americans don't want assault weapons to be in the hands of certain people, neither does Carey and neither do I or anyone else I Know

what the fuk is wrong with that?

The no-feudalists all drooling over themselves defending a moron who makes a living pretending to be an even bigger moron, when he's not busy supporting causes that really do kill children.

I suppose we really need more of that hog wash right..?

At least Carrey's stuff is funny. Maybe we need more hog wash like "first he speaks for gun control, then he tries to buy ARs and such.. Now he brings his assualt beast to the public beach to run willy nilly."

Because not only is it far from funny, it directly conflicts with the available information.

My impression is that if Carrey had done a video in lock step approval of the NRA stance of the 2nd amendment some on this site would herald him as the greatest comic actor of all time.

Heston also supported the gun control act of 1968.

And supported Goldwater, who opposed the civil rights act.

Never met the guy, but Carrey's skit was the funniest thing I've seen him do since Dumb and Dumber.

The Carey video which Hedge was having orgasms over is stupid and pointless. He ridicules rural Americans, but if he wanted to actually shine a light on gun violence he should have used rap music and gang bangers. Oh wait, then there would have been non-whites looking bad in the clip, and we can't have that can we? Then he ridicules Heston, a man who put his celebrity on the line for the cause of civil rights at a time when this did not come without risk.

And regarding Barry Goldwater and civil rights, as usual the truth is more complex than the sound bite version.

"... He got himself into political hot water, however, with his opposition to legislation that would eventually turn into the 1964 Civil Rights Act. Goldwater was a passionate Constitutionalist, who had supported the NAACP and had backed previous versions of civil rights legislation, but he opposed the 1964 bill because he believed it violated states’ rights to self-govern. His opposition earned him political support from conservative southern Democrats, but he was detested as a “racist” by many blacks and minorities."

Sucks to stand by your principles, doesn't it.
