Unless its your life... Wonder how you go about "replacing" that?

I'd love to hear his stance on "bullying" at grade levels....
Edit - Lay down and take it?

Besides, we all know that nobody is ever killed when being victimized.

What an apocalyptic ******* of a moron.

Just read on fox news that the head of media matters has a personal assistant that follows him everywhere. That pa carries a Glock. Ironic since they just received a $400,000 donation from an anti-gun group.

That's not hypocrisy at alll....wait, YES IT IS!!!!

Not the same story as the OP, but the same line of thinking.

Is anybody still fooled by these people?

Duh? I should hope so! The dispatch of ammo will escalate the chances of bg never being around to do it again.

Yeah, but government isn't interested in justice or law enforcement anymore. It is interested in "keeping the peace" which doesn't take sides.

I don't care about keeping the peace so some POS BG can victimize someone else, I care about protecting myself, and those around me.

Well, then I guess you and government don't agree on this issue. At least in D.C.

For what it's worth, I'm with you.

lol, me and the Government tend to disagree on most things. Have you noticed I rarely go into the politics forum? If I went in there, I'd probably be posting rants left and right.
