Is Mt. Holly in South Jersey?
If so, do you listen to WDAS - FM from Philadelphia? Great black station.
Yes it is and no I don't. Do you?

Downtown Philly is about a 25 minute ride.

I can handle the truth what bugs you is that it is not your truth it is the real truth....from both sides that have caused me to come to my conclusion I wasn't brought up with a gun in my hand so that I became a one eyed bigot and I was from a family that needed to use guns earlier on, for a purpose....I had no brainwashing so unlike you so I am able to make an informed decission without any prior bias..

BULL! If you could 'handle the truth, then you wouldn't continue posting your complete BS here. The TRUTH is just this: MAN has the ABSOLUTE RIGHT to keep and bear arms for his SELF-DEFENSE against whatever threat, be it private thug, or a government thug.
YOU demand that EVERYONE COMPLETELY surrender to government, as though they were OWNED SLAVES.
YOU DEMAND that the rest of us become as the Jews of 1930's Germany, and march without protest, into the prison camps to be exterminated.
Why don't you just admit that you're nothing less than a paid shill who posts here on TOPIX?

He's not anti-gun. He is a racist. He only gets worked up if it's not a black person doing the killing. He doesn't like the "brothas" being at risk in dark allys beating unarmed victims.

My butt does what it needs to, to purge me of my food....but your concern for my sphincter is a bit worrying....ya might want to check your obsession with that. I found in general terms men who refer too much to rear ends usually have a facination for the same sex...are you hiding something in the closet Fraud?

Nope you are wrong there...you didn't have a right to start a war with Irag but did that stop you from taking your guns and bombs over the ocean and killing inocents and involving allies in your lies.....see what happens when you are not accountable to the world for what you do.....I have every right to try to educate ignorant people who have a gung ho mentality that can and did and does affect me and everyone else in this world.....did you see aides stop in Africa? Evil deeds and thoughts spead like a virus until it is halted by those with a brain.

No man doesn't it is just Americans that think they do because someone wrote something down on a peice of paper in the distant past when it had relevance and you idiots ran with it because of your want to have a gun....and you will defend that even when it is proved over and over that there are more deaths by gun, by law abiding citizens than hardened criminals...whether that be mass murder, suicide, accidents or familycide...you are living in a fools paradise, you noong.
