95. What about illegal back-alley stolen gun dealers?
I'm 100% sure people are the essential ingredient in killing people. Matcom, I know you were in the Army so that means you know fully well that you don't need a gun to kill people. There are bombs, knives, vehicles, poisons, gases, diseases, fire, water, electricity, psychology, and your own military-trained hands. What they all have in common is the motherfucking people who use them for the horrible purpose of killing people.

Guns are banned on VT campus.

Many people, including good liberal DUers, enjoy the sport of target shooting.

This fellow didn't use a machine gun. Those are illegal.

Mental illness sucks and I wouldn't wish it on my worst enemy.

Some people are evil.

It sucks to get dumped. That puts you in a terrible state of mind. My girlfriend unexpectedly dumped me on Easter Sunday over the cell phone while I was driving and I had to pull over or I may have had an accident. Then I went home and sat in the dark by myself and felt really alone and insecure even though she said I'm a wonderful guy and it had nothing to do with me. I had a bad Easter.
