You are arguing with people without a soul. Give up and get as far away from them as possible.

Ron said: Ive has more than a few guns pointed at me degaine. Like a ruger blackhawk 357 magnum,, a model 92 winchester 30-30, and a ruger 308 carbine. Also a shotgun- remington 870 i think it was. And one of those doing said pointing died in that process from my gun. you were able to kill a man who was pointing a gun at you?
And why just the one?
Maybe you should get a bullet proof blankie Ron, you know, for next time, just in case you can't get the first shot off.

BTW, will someone please explain to a technonoob how to insert quotes and links properly?

Mornin Ding,, just getting my first sip o coffee..

Story? Ok Ill combine guns ans BIGFOOT..!;-)

I have a buddy, and fellow taxidermist who just after graduating high school ( hes younger than me) decided to pull a BIGFOOT prank. So him and another guy that later became a well known radio DJ purchased a "BIGFOOT" suit from a well known hollywood film costume company. It was somewhat realistic..

So they began what is still referenced on BF.ORG as the great genoa NV sightings LMAO!.. He told me of how they would wander up the creek just west of town - and how many locals and tourons they were dazzling. The way he described what they were doing is matched in the descriptions on the natl bigfoot site mind you. They had done several daylight wanders in the hills behind Genoa when they decided to do some night time wanders as well.

Then they got the idea to do roadway dashes on foothill road , at night as well- where they would dash across the road well ahead of cars then hide in the brush as they went by- often slowing up or stopping to get a glimpse of the squatch..

So one night they are doing this as a pick up heads south out of town and my buddy does the dash across the road, when he hears the engine of said truck rev to max rpms! He dashes down the edge of the road way to some willows near a ditch line, but to his amazement the truck just veers off the road and through a fence in full on pursuit of what the driver must surely have thought to be an actual factual squatch.

Turns out its a local rancher and it was his own fence he drove through as he schreeches to a halt and begins to fumble with a rifle in a gun rack inside the cab! OHWWW SH#TE thinks my buddy, and he runs for a near by canal ditch while the rancher starts jacking a shell into the chamber. He sat half in water and tules while the rancher wandered about looking for his squatch kill to be for quite a while, sweating all the time while praying he wasnt found. The rancher got back in his truck and drove the field for a while then vacated the scene and my buddy and his friend decided to put the suit and joke to rest not wanting to become the first recorded squatch kill on Nev.

This is STILL listed as a viable authentic "sighting" over at by the way ....

edit: BK,, i talk to Jim B all the time.

Let's be honest. Guns are fetish totems at this point.

Even the "wild west" knew that people wandering around with loaded guns in cities was a bad idea.

(Also that Prickly Ash Bitters are the bomb!)

Ya know its kinda funny these 'got m'GUNZ!!!!' types actually seem to revere the 'strong western sheriff' mythology of the American West (religion)... you know, like Wyatt Earp.

Wyatt Earp would pistol whipped Bundy and sold his cows at public auction. He would have shot those militia boyz like they were yeller hanky wearing bangers from Tombstone.

The Armed Citizen:
TROUTDALE -- Police responded shortly after 8 a.m. to a report of shots fired at Reynolds High School. Police confirmed about 9:20 a.m. that a shooter in the incident was dead.

At 10 a.m., police confirmed that one student had also been killed. The students names and genders have not been released.

SWAT teams were working their way through the school, releasing students from classrooms who are leaving with their hands over their heads.

Another day, another school shooting. Ho-hum.

You will FALL!!! The public is getting sick of the pathetic excuses. You will find you won't last long little cowards. You and your guns are NOTHING. THIS IS MY COMMUNITY YOU ASSHOLES. As far as I am concerned, you are the enemy.

"Can the crawling creator crawling in the same dark as his creature create while crawling?" One of the questions he put to himself as between two crawls he lay.

And if the obvious answer were not far to seek, the most helpful was another matter. And many crawls were necessary before he could finally make up his imagination on this score. Adding to himself without conviction in the same breath as always that no answer of his was sacred ....

So while in the same breath deploring a fancy so reason-ridden and observing how revocable its flights he could not but answer finally:

"No he could not. Could not conceivably create while crawling in the same create dark as his creature."

You guys sure are a bunch of alarmists. Fox News says it ain't so bad:
Are schools and colleges dangerous places, with lots of gun violence?

Some groups paint a picture of these places being particularly unsafe. Supposedly both murders and firearm suicides are very common at educational institutions. Last Wednesday, former New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg’s two groups, Moms Demand Gun Sense in America and Mayors Against Illegal Guns, jointly released a report that received massive uncritical news coverage.

They claimed that 44 shootings occurred in schools and colleges nationwide since the Newtown, Conn. massacre on Dec. 14, 2012 and Feb. 10 of this year. Out of the 44 shootings, a total of 28 died. To dramatize their numbers, Bloomberg’s groups emphasized that one of these attacks occurred every 10 days.

But their statistics are not what they seem. Included in the numbers are suicides. Also included are late night shootings taking place in school parking lots, on their grounds or even off school property, often involving gangs. As “shootings,” they also include any incident where shots were fired, even when nobody was injured.
Also, some perspective is needed. Contrary to what many people believe, high school shootings have actually been falling over the last two decades. To illustrate this let’s compare the five school years 1992-93 to 1996-97 with the five school years from 2008-09 to 2012-13. During the first period, the number of non-gang, non-suicide shooting deaths averaged 25 a year. During the recent five-year period, it averaged less than half that, 10 per year – and that figure does include the horrific Newtown massacre.

What a relief! I feel much better about all this!

Is there any type or kind of weapon or arm that a citizen should be prohibited from owning?

If you feel there is such a weapon tell me how the outlawing of said weapon in not a violation of the second amendment.

"What a relief! I feel much better about all this!"

No doubt. I'm sure the parents of the Reynolds HS kid are breathing huge sighs of relief.
