1 musket apiece for each the free white male adults in case we need to raise a militia if the brits come back.

Who was responsible for letting this killer into the school. I thought schools were under lock down and people needed security approval to get in. Someone screwed up on this deal.

None of the above. It's the user.

Should we blame Budwiser for all those d u i's or rotted livers. Or is it the bar, store or buyer/drinker.

Violent crime has gotten so bad in England, where guns are ban, that they have considered banning kitchen knives.

Guns are responsible for fewer deaths in America than box cutters and baseball bats. Twice as many are killed by vehicles every as guns.

Maybe this is why gas is so expensive, to prevent automobile deaths..

Brenda Moncrief has a loaded 357 next to her bed and my kids are at her house all the time. I pray to God they don't find it. But if that pedophile John Atzert gets near them I can only hope they do what they can to save themselves since Retha can't keep a relationship going. I wish she would have been smarter and keep the kids away from those hipster drugged out old timers. I need to get custody of Kenyon and Kendra now more than ever. They all are unstable. When I get back home the lawyer will have calls to make.

Conn has some of the strictest gun laws in the country. High crime rates are associated in areas with strict gun laws and gun free zones. Gun free zones are targeted by criminals because they know they will not face resistance. Affordable, accessible mental health reform is critical to aid in the solution.

Sure, I'll take a musket!!! I'll add it to my gun collection!!! But I'll still go out on weekends with my AR-15. Is that okay with you?

I don't lock my XD(M) or Glock 19 when I'm sleeping. I keep them where I can get to them if a 3AM intruder invited himself in.
Is that okay with you?
