If pointing that out makes me "righteous" in your eyes please consider what the gun obsessive's views are like for others.

My earlier comment was based on this story of an Australian Yachtie who figured not declaring his guns was a good idea.
He did spend a few months in jail for his trouble.
Just goes to show another example how absurd gun laws only hurt innocent decent people.

The guy in that video was lucky he defended against a left handed gunman.

Re: Gun Question, part 2

Being that every year the average amount of times a gun is used to save one's own life or the life of another is 2.2 million....I say it's always better to be safe than sorry.

Its a little bit sad that you measure your self worth by the amount of anonymous "online" friends one has.
You must be a real winner on friendface

And thanks for the several abusive PM's you have sent me, I got a good chuckle from them

I rest my case your honor...
Probably the best post I have read on this entire forum yet. Very deep.

Don't have anyone on ignore, although I have been tempted.

I mostly just consider the source whomever it might be, shake my head, then go read more on the NOAA JetStream Online school for weather.

So what's the count on actual answers to the OP's question ?
Three, or four, more ?

It really never crossed my mind until you mentioned it.
After the fact I thought of being lassoed, tied to something weighted and dropped in a deep part of the river, being hung, or tied to a tree with or without a beating, but never being anally raped. I guess my mind just isn't
that weird. Yet

Certainly adds some more color to my dreams. Ouch !

'Just added one more to my ignore list. I highly recommend newer members begin using the ignore function on this forum. It kind of works like Gold Bond powder... Gets rid of inflamation and irritation, so you can leave the rash alone and stop scratching it.
