BB gun?  That's so gay.

Police arrested Cornelius Davis, 20, of St. Petersburg on a charge of aggravated battery with a deadly weapon.

Okay, so obviously this guy is a douche. But aggravated battery with a 'deadly weapon?' Isn't that a bit extreme considering it was a BB gun?

Hey. I'll have you know that it could break the skin and cause a very bad infection.

Some kid tried to rob some friends and I with a BB gun once. We laughed very hard and he ran away.

St. Pete is a hell hole. Not because of this, just in general.

having been shot at the age of 9 at point blank range with a pellet from a gun that had been pumped like 10 times, and still having a tiny, somewhat noticeable scar in the middle of my chest at the age of 37, i can reasonably say that getting shot with a bb may sting slightly. PANIC!

I totally support putting GUN VIOLENCE into the same all-caps status as RON PAUL.

I hope he didn't get hit in the BBs.

A bb gun is a big step up from a slap fight.
 
2013-07-01 10:25:19 AM
 I really hope subby is trying to be ironic or something given the current climate the only difference is that no one is likely killed or seriously wounded. The threat and intent is still very clear. Wonder if subby also sees cross burning as a simple act of arson with no other implications.

Not exactly a place where everyone gets along, is it?  Born and raised there, moved away for good at age 30.  Love the downtown (now), but I sure don't miss the race riots, shootings, refuse from the Midwest and Brooklyn, etc...

Having used a BB gun, Airsoft gun and an M-16, freaking out over a BB gun is silly.  The first two just feel like cheap toys compared to a real farking rifle.

Yes, it is.  My father built the rifle, and the knife (the handle of which is the antler from a deer I shot).

Here is a picture of my shooting that very same rifle:

If you look very closely, you'll the bag and horn are the same, and you can see the handle of the knife peeking up above the bag, right where my sash goes around my back.

I would point out that my sash, and the matching gaiters (not shown in the pic) are absolutely *FABULOUS*.   If it wasn't so cold when we hold those events, I'd wear assless chaps and a breechcloth.

I was at Cincinnati's Gay Pride Parade and Festival this weekend and there was a dude with a bullhorn and a "sodomy is evil" sign.  He told us all that he loved us and didn't want to see us going to hell.  He walked past me and I couldn't think of anything clever to say but "Debbie downer!".  Later on, I saw that the police let him have a spot on the grass and protected him from the pissed off lesbians that were screaming at him.  I have to say, the guy had balls being the only protester amongst 50K gay people/straight allies.

I have to say though, with the repeal of DOMA and the religious, conservative nuts out there, I was aware of what was going on around me at all times.

No one with a chest like that has a neck like that. He'd snap his head off the fist time he masturbates during a football game.

Funny thing, subby, they don't blow it out of proportion in this story at all, as you seem to imply. In fact, they mention it as a violent incident, but the ONLY violent incident in the parade's 20 year history, and further go on to say it is an example of the organizers and the city working together to have the needed emergency and police crews in place.
 
2013-07-01 12:48:17 PM
It's the culture of retards who masturbate over their guns that's the problem.
 
2013-07-01 12:52:59 PM
And once again, the conversation of gun violence is diluted, first by my side screaming about THEY TOOK ER GERNS...then by their side screaming ERMGERD ALL GUN ERNERS ER CRERZER!...then by the media amping the Hysteria to 11 with "ZERMAGERD KERDS URSING SQUIRT GERNS GERN VERLENCE!"

Seriously, all issues about gun control vs. gun ownership aside, how about we ramp down the hysterics and emotional masturbation on both sides of the fence and disconnect the death of people from the immediate need to classify it as violence X? Too many people die every day for us to fragment our efforts to stop violent behavior by attacking only the tools or the imagery and not the cancer that causes it.

/So sick and tired of the grandstanding over guns-this and violence-that, when not one goddamn person who claims to want to stop violence is adopting poor families in blighted neighborhoods and getting them out of their slums and into a better situation. Bloomberg -- you wanna stop violence? Find a way to give a better life to the people that turn to drugs, violence, and crime because they have no other options. Might make more of a difference than becoming a pseudofascist trying to control the behavior of others.
//You can't fight free will. No one will ever do as you say, no matter what. The only way to make a person change is make them WANT to change, and the only way you can make them WANT to change is by giving them options that appeal to them to become better people to achieve it.
///Give a man a fish, and he eats for a day -- then resents you because you didn't change his life, you just fed him once, and he now has to be dependent on you because he can't do shiat on his own. Teach a man to fish, he'll eat for a lifetime, and he'll be more prosperous because he learned something that he can then do himself and feel pride in. A man wants to be a better person and earn his keep and achieve his goals through his actions. Being given things only destroys the sense of pride and value a man takes in his achievements because he was never forced to work for them.

I completely agree with you, on both points (hair and arms). And I agree with an earlier poster that it may be photoshoped.

Even without the freakish arms, he's a bit too.. 'Jersey' twinkish for my tastes.
