Why does anyone NEED an assault rifle pit bull??
Assault rifles Pit bulls were created for one purpose, to attack and kill.
Assault rifles Pit bulls are responsible for hundreds of deaths and injuries each year.
If you need home defense, why not just get a shotgun Collie?
We need background checks and registration for all assault weapon pit bull purchases.

The seal isn't actually dead.

It merely suffered brain damage, and will spend the rest of it's life advocating  dog control.

"I like long walks on the beach, running with my dog, watching it utterly destroy cute sea mammals that just happen to be chilling on the shore."

theurge14: Office Ninja: theurge14: HAMMERTOE: On November 22, 1963, the President was shot in the head in Dallas, TX. Did the country go on a rabid liberal witch-hunt of rifles? No.

Why not?

When a president is shot (which has happened before), you have a political problem.

When you have a short period of time that is full of an increasing number of gun massacres which culminates in over 20 schoolkids wiped out in one setting, you have a guns in society problem.


Sorry, when discussing gun massacres we don't get to cross the word gun out.

I guess you think the Holocaust was a giant Train problem huh?

Headline was much funnier when I mis-read it as

Gabby Gifford's husband pulls a mauling dog off a BABY at a California beach.

/I'm a sick %*$&, I know .  Let the bashing begin.

Madame Ovary: Bronzed War God: There are two threads... is this the one where we defend the dogs and owners?  Or is that the other thread?

Where do the space-nerds stand on this issue?

Ancient weapons and hokey religions are no match for a good blaster at your side.

Uranus Is Huge!: WhoopAssWayne: Office Ninja: He apparently has no problem with owning the very type of firearm (a handgun) that was used in nearly killing his wife but has a hard on for banning "assault" rifles which are overwhelmingly less responsible for annual deaths than handguns.

Yep, and then there's this:

[img401.imageshack.us image 308x394]

When it was politically expedient during an election, she was more than happy to associate herself with "assault" rifles.

So you're telling me that taking a bullet in the farking head might change one's opinion on gun control?

Who knew?

It apparently didn't change Kelly's opinion.  He is openly admitting to purchasing a .45 with the intent to keep it.

Administrator #102's head pounded in time with the blinking amber light on her console. Man, that Washington rye could be some terrible stuff!

Leaning both elbows on the console edge, she cradled her face in her palms. That farking Moderator #17 would be at the other end of that blinking yellow light. He would have his tiny little balls sweating with outrage that Administrator #102 would have greened two stories about the same thing. He would biatch about how many Notify Moderator messages were coming in and he would moan about how many Farkbacks were stacking up. He would go on and on about how he would make a better Administrator than her and how that sort of duplicate green would NEVER happen on his watch.

Well, Moderator #17 could just take a flying fark at a rolling donut.

Administrator #102 adjusted her headset, lit a smoke with the sterling silver squirrel nut lighter, and blew a big cloud of smoke out into the dark room before opening the circuit.

"Go ahead, Mod seventeen" she intoned evenly.

"Are you aware that you have two greens on the same story on the main page again? I mean, when you screw up the video tab, that's one thing, but the main page for God's sake!" Christ, the whine in that voice made Administrator #102's fists ball up without her even realizing.

"Yeah. I know" she replied.

"Well what are you going to do about it?"

"Not a farking thing. They both get a full ride."

There was silence. Moderator #17 was trying to think of something to say to that. When it finally came, his response could not have been worse.

"The boss is going to hear about this."

Administrator #102 smiled in the darkness. She quickly keyed up Drew Curtis'  itinerary for the day before answering.

"The boss," she began coolly, "is in LA today visiting Vincent_BlackShadow. After that he's headed down to San Diego to start brewing some beer with that Wheaton guy. Why don't you go ahead and give him a call in the middle of that. I'm sure he love to hear from you, because right now I'm the boss, you got that?" She snapped off the comm circuit and took another drag off her cigarette.

Moderator #17 could just take a flying fark at a rolling donut.

tenpoundsofcheese: you think seals are cuddly?  sick.  If he killed a bald eagle, or even a slightly balding eagle, you wouldn't be so flippant about this irresponsibility.

This town would like a word with you. Also, a dog fighting a bald eagle would rank pretty high on the "this is awesome enough to overcome the revulsion brought on by watching animals kill each other" list.

According to Biden, Giffords was mortally wounded in that attack.  So I am not surprise that the widow would not carry a gun or even own a gun.
