  - He is only 24  one-eyed fat man   Dec-07-11 09:44 AM   #8 
     - But what about the illegal chemicals built up in his body...could hurt birds and small animals.  ileus   Dec-07-11 10:20 AM   #14 
        - He is a bit too corpulent  one-eyed fat man   Dec-07-11 10:35 AM   #17 
  - Just pointing out majority of people handle situations without polluting society with more guns.  Hoyt   Dec-07-11 09:17 AM   #5 
  - Yeah, I should have beat that bear that ended up in my house with a frying pan. nt  Maine_Nurse   Dec-07-11 10:03 AM   #9 
  - A bear? in the in 4 legged furry thing with teeth and claws?  ileus   Dec-07-11 10:15 AM   #11 
  - Yeah, a young-ish male...  Maine_Nurse   Dec-07-11 10:31 AM   #16 
     - How rude...he only wanted food, and maybe some stuff.  ileus   Dec-07-11 12:05 PM   #22

  - No - i really don't see myself doing that  We_Have_A_Problem   Dec-07-11 11:16 AM   #20 
  - How much do you train to shoot people?  Hoyt   Dec-07-11 12:52 PM   #23

     - I somehow got the idea  one-eyed fat man   Dec-07-11 06:49 PM   #50 
        - Strange that. I had the same basic experience, only the sign read  oneshooter   Dec-07-11 09:38 PM   #51

                    - "the only time toters might prevail"  rl6214   Dec-08-11 07:43 PM   #85 
                       - Good point to remember -- almost any toter is a problem for society.  Hoyt   Dec-08-11 08:59 PM   #90 
                 - Most "gunners" I have ever seen were in the door of a helicopter  rl6214   Dec-08-11 07:41 PM   #84

                          - missed the other three  gejohnston   Dec-08-11 10:18 PM   #95 
                             - If you can't converse without resorting to dictionary definitions, I suggest you are not capable of  Hoyt   Dec-08-11 10:49 PM   #96 
                                - what being a word usage geek has to do with  gejohnston   Dec-08-11 10:56 PM   #97 
                                   - Each of those in your cache need regular oiling.  Hoyt   Dec-08-11 11:23 PM   #98 
           - Let me assure you  one-eyed fat man   Dec-08-11 08:32 AM   #55 
              - God, I'd hate to walk around all day in this country feeling like I'm prey or something.  Hoyt   Dec-08-11 08:44 AM   #59 
                 - So would I  We_Have_A_Problem   Dec-08-11 08:50 AM   #61 
                 - I and 96% of population don't either and we don't have a gun or two tucked in our pants.  Hoyt   Dec-08-11 06:12 PM   #71 
                    - Again, worrying what people have tucked in their pants...  rl6214   Dec-08-11 07:46 PM   #86 
                 - Yes you are, you just haven't been found by your predator,yet. n/t  oneshooter   Dec-08-11 08:53 AM   #62

                       - Maybe if there weren't as many criminals trying to victimize people  Nuclear Unicorn   Dec-08-11 02:02 PM   #68 
                          - I'm fine with targeting criminals, as long as it is not done by citizens playing judge, jury, Jesus.  Hoyt   Dec-08-11 06:17 PM   #74 
                             - And how do you define that?  Nuclear Unicorn   Dec-09-11 07:38 AM   #99 
  - it just proves that the gun was a tool --  Tuesday Afternoon   Dec-07-11 05:34 PM   #49 
  - I am! Why, I'd just pop my belt, and make him trip over my gut. Then..  SteveM   Dec-07-11 02:09 PM   #38 
  - I seriously doubt he is.  jeepnstein   Dec-08-11 08:34 AM   #56

  - Well that and....  We_Have_A_Problem   Dec-07-11 12:56 PM   #26 
  - Yes, I do think -- that's reason I don't buy the BS that people need a gun in public.  Hoyt   Dec-07-11 01:19 PM   #34 
     - Does not appear that you do but whatever.  We_Have_A_Problem   Dec-07-11 02:21 PM   #39 
  - Why don't you answer the uncomfortable questions?  one-eyed fat man   Dec-07-11 02:43 PM   #43 
  - Is that a requiement for defending oneself from violence?  Atypical Liberal   Dec-07-11 03:21 PM   #46 
  - And young, and maybe strong.  ileus   Dec-07-11 01:21 PM   #35 
  - Was he going on a trip? Why would he want to PACK his gun?  rl6214   Dec-08-11 07:27 PM   #83 
  - +1  jpak   Dec-09-11 09:43 AM   #100 
  - wonder what this criminals plans is too important to go around unarmed  ileus   Dec-07-11 08:37 AM   #2

     - Yea, maybe it will eliminate the small percentage here who think more guns in society is good.  Hoyt   Dec-08-11 06:19 PM   #75 
        - Maybe  rrneck   Dec-08-11 06:28 PM   #78
