Glad I don't live in CA. I may have been born there but I chose to live in Nevada.

There's a reason so many california guns get stored in nevada too.

Laws that forbid the carrying of arms...disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes...
Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants;
they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man.

I get the feeling people arming themselves because criminals are armed is treating the symptom and not the problem :wink:

It is irrelevant whether criminals are armed or not.

I'm liking me some Rifleman! That Chuck Connors was a tall drink of water!! and the way he handled his rifle, well, it's more than a woman can take!
Sometimes I'm confused by what I think is really obvious. But what I think is really obvious obviously isn't obvious.

I think I'll snicker at the content of the list.

That's Hollywood for ya.

But they do occasionally 'get it right'.

Anybody know who Bill Pickett was? Now HE was a real cowboy.

If Jesus Christ had miracled his ass an M-60, there would have been no crucifixion, jews wouldn't have been used as human lamp oil or cat food by the Romans, no inquisition, no crusades, no holy wars. Dirty fucking hippie. Jesus is the King of the Trustafarians.
