    I'm glad you two have smoked the peace pipe.

    Say, what is in peace pipes?
    I was always curious about that.

    And why does it create peace.

    I know what Tequila does, you two should "not" be sitting down and having Tequila. I'm voting against that right now.

    Since he now realizes I am ok with smoking a peacepipe. But, wait, I don't smoke! and, I only drink wine and even then it is very limited, so Terry will coffee work? Money always works, too.

    Money, yes money works too?
    But who pays who?

    Wait, we can tax the posts here, collect the money, and get banana splits.

    But if the ice cream gets on the keys, then what?
    Maybe not a good idea.

    I had tea yesterday. I was feeling very Chinese, somehow not English,
    Though I must be some English with a name like Love.

    It's funny how much trouble locations make,
    You are an Earthling.
    Then a member of a country, a state, a part of the state, a region in the part of the state, a county, and city, maybe a city or two, but maybe not the right neighbor hood or even street. Jeez.
    And all because we can think of what separates us, instead of what unifies us.

    I have a pump pellet gun. Does that count for anything?

    Damn!
    Who needs semi-automatic?

    Years ago my dad who was a local police oficer came across a deal on a Colt 1911 .45 Cal. Pistol which he got for me...

    Before giving it to me dad insisted that we go to the police range so he could go over proper gun handling techniques.

    Bear in mind that I had just gotten out of the service about a year earlier and had been stationed in Idaho which at the time was a place where you could walk into the local bank with a pistol strapped on and it wouldn't even raise an eyebrow...

    We had both sports there...
    Hunting and fishing...

    My landlord who I really never paid rent to...
    (he was a realtor that supplied endless side jobs, some cash, some free rent, some barter, always a great deal)
    Owned a pawn shop and collected many guns from it.
    Any time I wanted I could borrow (for forever if I wanted to) anything in his collection at home or that was for sale in the store.

    I did a little bit of shooting!

    Anvway back to dad's teaching me how to shoot...

    He pulls out his service revolver a Smith and Wesson Model 19 .357 Magnum demonstrates a stance and squeezes the trigger painfully slow and fires a round. We were shooting at a Silhouette Law Enforcement Target and he winged the perp in the shoulder right in the 7 ring...



    He then turns to me and says, "Do you think you can do that..."

    I say, "I don't know dad... I'll give it a try..."

    I slowly got into position, looking over to him as if to say, "Am I doing this right."

    Then I started rapidly firing the Colt. Every time it lined up on the target after a recoil I fired another round. I emptied the first clip, ejected it on the ground grabbed a second clip had in my pocket reloaded, emptied the second clip, reloaded with a third clip and emptied that too all in a few seconds...

    We pulled the target back and as we were doing that he was telling me how I should have shot slower and aimed better...

    We got the target back and there was not a single hole in it less than the 9 ring except the one I put in the forehead. That was the first shot that I took my time on...

    He muttered something about me being a wise a....

    We spent the rest of the day getting dad some lessons.
    He got a little faster and more accurate...
    Good thing we were in a small town and his shooting skills were never needed...

    Yeah, as a kid we came up to visit my cousins on the farm
    They brought us out to a sand pit/backstop to show us how to shoot.
    My uncle loaded the gun & showed us how to shoot
    He knocked off about 3/4 of the cans he shot at
    My turn
    I only missed one
    He wanted to know where a city kid learned to shoot
    In school!!

    60 Minutes did a very interesting take on this gun increase.


    30% rise in sales.


    65 democrats for the NRA <<< !!!!

    Basically this would all but drown out any idea of gun control coming back.


    Perfect example they mentioned:

    Virginia tech shootings? They tried to pass a law in Virginia that would close loopholes in gun sales.....and it FAILED.


    That's pretty substantial given that 30 some people died in that college campus shooting.


    The attitude was this: If just one, one college student had a gun, this guy could of been taken out, because as soon as he knew a gunfight was going to ensue with the police, he killed himself.


    Same with the guy in New York. Both killed themselves when a gun was coming into play.

    Excerpts of this article I hope to get on here; I don't think they'll put the whole thing up.
    Read what the end of this sentence means.

    I think the best thing we could do is come up with some sort of GOVERMENT control. You know what IM talking about, Instead of waiting for them to be impeached when they do something totally illegal, just have a quick vote by the people not there fellow cronies and throw them out on the street
