Have you noticed you never see Harvey and Big Bad John Roberts in the room at the same time? Coincidence?

You assault the intelligence of everyone on these threads, au Jimbo. You whining about someone "assaulting other posters" is hilariously hypocritical, and as to playgrounds, clearly that's what you think Topix IS or you wouldn't be here posting this rubbish.
Right?:)

Hmm, how exactly does a playground "call" someone, au Jimbo? And if they did, why would they call a pervert like you, given to male-male comeons, talk about pedophilia, and discussions of disgusting things to do with gerbils?

I think that's YOUR raincoat. Just make sure that when you go pick it up this time, you're wearing pants. You KNOW what that nice policeman told you the last time it happened! ;)

I'll shoot you in one leg with a .22 and the other leg with a .45 and I'll let you decide if bore size is relevant.

The 7.62 AK47 killed more. Our bombs and napalm killed more of the little people. Our M60 also used 7.62, and don't forget my favorite, the M79 , and the 50BMG. The .223(5.56) was just one of many killing tools.

Your bore size is a lot bigger than a 45, eh, donglicker, more like kielbasa bore.

PS: the NRA-approved assault weapon used the .223 and when the gun lover fired ten and eleven rounds into each child, it did a pretty good job.

Knob job: the .223 killed over a million Vietnamese.

Not even close.

Stick to what you know, donglicker: making two Denver urban cowboys scream out your name at the same time.

Prove it.

Let's start with the U.S. military's standard service rifle of the Vietnam War being... the M16.

And do let's remember how effective the .223 was on the children of Sandy Hook.
