Hey Nope, did you fire that cannon off???:) I can't believe I have never heard of this tradition until this year. I think I have been too dang sheltered in my life! lol All that shooting and I have missed out on it.:( I was "in town" last night and heard SEVERAL gunshots going off. First I heard a few fireworks then I heard a BOOM and I told the sweetie that was not fireworks, it was a shotgun! He agreed. I said you have got to be kidding me and as I said that I hear more shots that were not a shotgun. He said nope, that sounded like high powered pistols. I said, "That crap has got to come down somewhere!!!" He suggested that it might he a good time to be IN the house. LOL The popo was turning onto our street as I was pulling out. lol
If the government ever does plan on taking our guns I think they better start somewhere else and put Kentucky way on down on their list of things to do. LOL
LOL! Nope, I was in bed way before midnight. After we snacked on treats I'd made, it was hard to stay awake. The Twilight marathon was great though.

And it was apparently very quiet around the woods here too. Didn't even hear nary a peep out of those foolish yokels way down in the holler either, hehe!

If I HAD gone out and shot my new baby off, by the time the PoPo found their way out here, they'd have no clue where the noise might have come from, plus it's no illegal to shoot out where i am anyway. We're too far out in the boonies for them to even care, really. I love living way out here in the woods...

You all did well to go indoors. Some people don't have sense enough to evem OWN a gun, let alone know that shooting straight up into the sky causes ammo to fall somewhere. Be it someones head or their roof.

A few years back there was a woman who had her eye put out because a stray falling bullet hit her as she was watching fireworks. A man was also killed that same night in another city when a stray shot came down and got him in the head... I think ballistics showed where that shot came from but I don't recall if they were ever able to prosecute anyone for it or not. Proving WHO shot the weapon might have been an issue. I just don't remember right off hand.

When I go outside to shoot, I know where I can safely have fun without hurting anyone else. Got a few acres of nothing but woods and also know better than to ever shoot upward. What goes up, eventually has to come back down...

I am not sure how I feel about teachers being armed. Might end up being a disaster. I think they should install metal detectors at the front door, hire off duty police like some do already. It is sad to even think about. What a day we live in now huh? Kid can't even go to school without worrying about their safety.
Hi AB. I'm glad your friends thought of you.:)
I think that if a teacher goes through the training to be qualified to carry a concealed weapon they should be able to carry in schools also. I do think that maybe they would need some EXTRA training and EXTRA screening considering they would be carrying around kids. I believe that in a lot of the cases fewer lives would have been lost had somebody been prepared to take the shooters out. Another thing, if a school (or other place) is a "gun free zone" that is just an open invitation for some nut to come in and murder helpless people. They don't need to know who else is carrying a gun or where they might run into them. That is just my opinion.
Those teachers in San Antonio were learning hand to hand combat, not how to shoot.

My theory is that if they truly want to make America a weapon restricted country, then perhaps out of safety concerns for our President, maybe the White House ought to be "gun free" for starters.... Ya think? Could be a day where some government official might go wacko in there too one day.... Just something to ponder on....

I was too since they would not take NO for an answer. They were slightly toasted but had a DD. Bundled up and even took my blanket and really enjoyed it. Had my one glass of bubbly to toast the year in. Quite tasty. If I hadn't been on meds I might of had 2 or 3 glasses. lol

All that training would be good for them, but where would they keep them locked up, in their desk? The students shouldn't be subjected to armed teachers. I think there is a better way to confront the problem when you think of how many schools are out there. The threat could come from inside the school with the weapons available to them from their teachers. I don't think it would work. School security shouldn't lay on the teachers. Hire some, put in detectors, and let the teachers TEACH. JMO

I doubt it but I hope those people were shooting into the ground instead of up. That is really dumb to shoot a high powered gun in the air. I remember seeing Sadam Housein and those nuts firing rifles in the air and wondering how many people were killed or injured! They seem to like to do that A LOT in the Middle East area. I've been hit by buckshot from a shot gun. It was pretty far away but it still stung a little bit - enough for me to get the heck out of the area pretty quick! lol It's legal for us to shoot here where I live too and plenty of it goes on!

Disagree all you want to, I SAID it was JMO. So the new standard for teachers would be they be gunslingers? Please, what about all those who just want to teach. Our teachers shouldn't have to be the security of the school. The school should provide that. Whether it be hired security and/or metal detectors. I just think it would be a sad day in America when every child has a gun carrying teacher. I just believe there should be an alternative to arming teachers in the classroom.

YES, I do believe in the 2nd ammendment and don't think there will ever be a time that guns are taken from Americans. It just won't happen. I DO believe that there is no reason anyone should have assault weapons except for soldiers and law enforcement. I don't have a problem with that type of gun control. Or the 3 day waiting period to obtain a gun. People don't need assault weapons to hunt deer etc...AGAIN JMO. I will not be debating political gun scare tactics with you, so that is all I am saying on that subject.

I agree with the concept, but the continuing problem will be the definition of who is good versus who is bad or who will remain good.

I have loaded guns that have only been fired in 3 years to see if they still operate properly, cleaned, then readied.

teachers should not have to be security guards but until we can take guns away from the bad guys, the good guys need to be able to protect themselves. As for assault weapons, I think we should take them away from soldiers and law enforcement too, especially if the general population will be disarmed. In the utopian world or the Kingdom of God, no one should have weapons and maybe one day there won't be a need for them. But as long as some people have them (military and law enforcement) then everyone should be allowed to have them because how else are we supposed to protect ourselves from a government that goes rogue that seeks to impose a military police state?

You read, interpret, and believe whatever you wish; and I will do the same. I still fall back to the Scriptures that I have previously posted that says "Take Heed that no man deceive you".

Good Day to you, I have no intentions of continuing to argue with you every time I come to this thread. But I will NOT be avoiding the thread just because you are here.
