Guns make holes in your body,
Through which you can't potty,
Just your blood and guts spill out,
Bambi's mom could still munch grass,
Tupac would be tapping ass,
If you hate guns,
Scream and shout!
So (repeat top verse)

Uh, Subby? Saltsburg has a population of 873 as of the last census. Does that help you out?

Edmundson was charged with impersonating an officer after he detained juveniles he said were throwing corn at passing vehicles.

In sad truth, nothing was lost with the passing of Edmundson. In passing, may we please respect the lawn of which he has so reverently protected from the youth. In which we pray oh white Christ Santa FoxNews.....Herp Derp.

My bad. In the not so soon passing of Edmundson ;)

I think in this moment of tragedy we should remember the rules when discussing this or any other gun tragedy:

Rule 1: It is "ghoulish" to suggest in any way that the easy availability of guns might in any way enable gun slaughter.
Rule 2: Gun crime in the president's hometown proves that guns anywhere else are no fit topic of conversation.
Rule 3: All gun owners are to be complimented as responsible and law-abiding until they personally have hurt themselves or somebody else
Rule 4: Any attempt to stop mass casualty shootings is "political." Allowing them to continue is"non-political."
Rule 5: Gun ownership is essential to freedom, as in Serbia & Guatemala. Gun restrictions lead to tyranny, as in Australia & Canada.


Carry on with your non political discussion, fellow militia member.

FTA: In November, Edmundson was charged with impersonating an officer after he detained juveniles he said were throwing corn at passing vehicles. Sources also said Edmunson used to work in law enforcement but he was let go.

Sounds like this guy might have had some issues, I'd like to hear why he was let go from the police force. Was he fired or laid-off?

It's a good thing those mental health reforms that Republicans posted up as an alternative to gun control are working out.

/Know it's a joke
//GOTP wouldn't do a goddamned thing about mental health in this country

You guys would be much less terrified of gun owners if you would just go out and enjoy life a little.  It kind of looks like obsession.

Back before the government invented zoning laws, running a business out of your home was common. Typically they would have the store/business in the front and the home portion in the rear or upstairs. If you drive down main street of any older town you'll see the stores all have a residence above them where the owners would live.

Sadly this gun store owner isn't at the next level of home protection that the industry is moving towards. "Man Traps" are revolutionizing the home protection business. The NRA doesn't want you knowing about all the various ways you can rig your house and your property to defend yourself, your family, your freedom, your country and Christ Almighty.

The NRA writes the legislation that makes protecting your property with anything other than a gun a crime for the sake of their corporate profits. Isnt it time somebody told the NRA that there are other ways?

Visit the ManTrapsForFreedom.com site to make your voice heard in the NRAs Washington, because when you run out of bullets and the tears of liberals to lubricate your guns, you're going to have to resort to Man Traps.

A man was murdered.

And he was murdered by a former law enforcement officer....the kind of guys who enforce gun grabbing legislation.

Already done.  Four years in the Army, 3 years as a Sheriff's deputy.

I know what's out there because I've had to clean up the aftermath.  I've had more exposure to firearms than the average person by an exponential measure.  I carry.  A .38 snubnose revolver.  I don't even own a long rifle, just a 12 gauge for sporting clays and home defense.  My firearm isn't a penis extension, an Internet tough guy statement, or a a defense against tyranny.  My firearm is with me at all times because I've seen the bad guys up close and personal and there is no way that I will let my family or any other innocent person be put at risk if I happen to be in a position to do something about it.

If you think that you can't be a victim of violent crime anywhere at anytime, or that law enforcement can protect you, you're delusional.

Subby, in Kensington, MD I know there's a gun shop combined with a model train store. And Kensington isn't even a small town, it's the suburbs just outside Washington DC.

I've managed to live 35 years without being the victim of a violent crime, so that's one heck of a delusion.  I have no desire to have a gun or use a gun.  They're costly and I have better things to spend my time and money on.  But if I did, I'd want to make sure that the system made sure I was properly checked out and trained on how to use that weapon.  They made sure I had training before I got my driver's license, and a car isn't designed to kill anybody on purpose.  I'd also want to make sure that if somebody was mentally ill or considered a threat that the law could at least remove the danger that he or she is to other people in society with those guns.  Yeah, yeah, I know; he'll get his gun anyway by stealing it from a responsible gun owner who left it outside of the safe or he'll just use a lawnmower or a hammer to kill people.

So you aren't really aware of the current laws that exist and you insist on even more laws that do the same thing that other laws do simply because you are ignorant of the law.


Is that a decent summation?

Because that is like 90% of the pro gun control crowd.
