71. Since you are trying to make this about "gun owners", let me edumacate you
Edited on Wed Aug-25-10 11:14 AM by slackmaster
Responsible owners of guns and other lethal weapons know that it's morally and legally OK to use deadly force only to protect life and limb, and in a few special situations (referring to Texas at night) property.

This story isn't about gun owners any more than it's about Christians. It's about a few irresponsible bigots trying to create a media circus.
