He's still a Dem, the NRA will have no issue turning against him faster than they fell over themselves to support Romney.

Come out here, Joe. We'll show you where a 30 box comes in handy when hunting.

Now here is a well balanced member of society who should obviously be trusted to run loose with a weapon.

Nope.

I have quite a few weapons.

Or at least a far bigger freezer.

He's talking about hogs. I personally know small ranch owners (the ranch is small...not the person) who, at certain times of the year, will shoot 5-6 at once and leave them laying (or drag them off the pasture).

Woosh... It went right over your head.  Just spray the sky with bullets until you hit it.

Oh, and here's the video of Joe Manchin literally shooting a copy of the cap and trade bill.

Kind of a big deal for him to be supportive of a gun control law.

Dancin_In_Anson: Come out here, Joe. We'll show you where a 30 box comes in handy when hunting.


Then you're a terrible shot. Maybe you should put some time in the range instead of relying on your ammunition.

We have a winner! I wish you would have waited a little longer though. I was quite enjoying watching the omniscient Fark brain trust at work.

Technically I think this would have been more effective.

Well, I do have a couple of rarities but I doubt they're newsworthy.

If nearsighted rednecks are afraid of pigs then surely no restrictions can be put on firearms.

So aim first and shoot with a deer slug or something.

The irony is that Grover Norquist is on the NRA's board of directors.

Why is beyond me.

Well, if you think of the NRA is simply an extension of the GOP, it makes sense.

12 gauge buckshot. They were fighting with each other.

Any attempt at a culturally unifying solution will have to involve the NRA. I won't defend them but I will say its important to have them at the table. If they are there their constituents might not be as paranoid about it.

How did you get close enough for a shotgun?!

Oh, and for you farking idiots who have absolutely no farking idea what you are babbling about, have a read.

If only those children had been armed.

Dancin_In_Anson: How did you get close enough for a shotgun?!


It was woodsy and I walked quietly.

I have good hope that this particular nasty event is going to result in some decent changes to our gun laws. Too much to hope to ban handguns, but that's what I would like to see. And maybe gun culture will take a hit.

So there were at LEAST 9 pieces of shot in that round, therefore libs bad QED

They don't know about the wild hogs overrunning Texas. I myself want no more than two or three of them for my freezer, but when you're in a target rich envirionment, that 30 round mag comes in handy. Just ask the Connecticut shooter!

Uh huh, Texas farking bred the things for hunting and now they're out of control.

Let's cede Texas to the killer hogs and maybe they'll leave the rest of us alone?
 
2012-12-17 09:57:14 AM
We discuss serious issues around here occasionally. Like that time that guy got his sack stuck in the slatted chair seat.
 
2012-12-17 09:57:42 AM
I see DIA has as usual tried to derail the conversation with an inane and irrelevant side topic.

BTW, if he was a real hunter, he'd use a bow.

BunkoSquad: Let's cede Texas to the killer hogs and maybe they'll leave the rest of us alone?



They've already spread all the way to Canada.  Sport hunters created the problem and now we've got DIA in here saying "We need all these bullets to deal with this problem we created!".
