34. more fans!

Every day, a new one. Today, two, even!

I don't see any "lawfully armed civilians" any day, unless I happen to be in the vicinity of an armoured vehicle transporting cash and/or valuables.


Nah. You're all right, Jack. If anybody else wants to avoid being a victim of crime, let 'em get guns.
Unless you are a federally prohibited person (generally speaking, a felon), you have every right to go through the licensing, training and expenses of lawfully carrying a weapon, just as many of your co-workers and fellow citizens have.

Bzzzzzt.
