The only person a real American would want to rely on is the good guy with a gun.

I'm certainly not saying there's nothing irrational about my feelings as they are in fact feelings, but in a vacuum I'd very much like the option of mounting an MG-42 on my roof to repel Allied invasions.

TBH, Chula, there's no way you live in a place that makes you think you need a gun. You just wanted a murder weapon.

Last week the guy next to me's psycho 35 year old son was outside ranting and raving and breaking windows trying to get into his dad's RV. Dad was out of town at the time. I live in the land of miss-fit toys. Cali is long overdue for a massive earthquake. Plus, if I ever do snap, it'll make hunting all you ****ers down much, much easier.
