is this connected with the detroit cop that found his wife dead when he came out of a pharmacy?

Hmm...and it was the police chief...interesting. Isn't he the kind of person that has supposedly had enough education and training to be able to handle guns responsibly? I mean as compared to the rest of us.

I liked the guy who got his mother-in-law to drive woodchucks on the farm into shooting range. One time as she came up over the backside of a hill, her brown haired head resembled a rodent...

I think you may need to reread the article. It was not the police chief who shot his wife. Police Chief was relaying what happened.

Shoot first, ask questions after you've killed your spouse.

With all the people getting themselves worked up to "shoot 'em dead" where intruders are concerned, it was only a matter of time before this happened. And it isn't the first time.

If you're going to use a gun to defend your property and family (and that *is* your right), be sure of what you're defending and from whom.

Once you pull that trigger, it's too late to change your mind.

But you can always shoot again if you miss.

If at first you don't succeed....

Guess he remembered rule #1 from gun class- don't point it at anyone unless you're going to pull the trigger- ooh, back to the favorite expressions thread, I'll be back...

I really don't understand why people are still tipping cows as their service is usually very poor and they are rude to-boot.
