    Fantasize? It would be more like memories for me brother. Nice try though.

    Yeah, you're right. Because I've never shot anyone before and I'd just woos out at the last minute like in the movies lol. I would actually shoot someone for trespassing on my property, if I felt threatened.

    What culture would that be? Oh, you mean the US Marine Corps? No, you don't gain approval amongst peers for saying you'd kill someone, muslim or not. Its assumed that everyone would have no problem killing someone. Thats what we do. Killing someone is not that big of a deal in our world. Also, whats so horrifying about defending my property?

    Lets see, who's more likely to actually be a tough guy. A guy whose user name is a slang for defecating or a Marine? I'm betting on the latter.

    However, that wasn't the point of my post to begin with. I would shoot someone if they were carrying reading material, not carrying reading material, or anything else in their hand for that matter. Your assumption that I live in the suburbs or a city is probably the genesis for your baseless opinion about cultures, tough guys, and the like. I actually live in the country where, if someone would like to visit, they would let me know they were coming. In addition, there is no reason for any person to come down my driveway or the road my driveway is on unless they are actually coming to my home. Finally, while I am not affluent, I have affluent neighbors. A thief would more than likely associate me with the class of my neighbors and target my house. Therefore, I would shoot someone who came on my property because I live in a remote location, there is no reason to come to my home unannounced, and the wealth of my neighbors gives the impression that I am wealthy. Of course, you knew all that before you made your statements huh?

    The Occupy rally in my city became a cesspool of filth and bad sanitation about 2 days into it and then one of the protestors overdosed and died in his tent, while another group almost died from a faulty space heater. Some good permits do. They completly trashed a beautiful park.

    The occupiers were marching on public space and this man was on public space does this man deserve different treatment from the Occupiers who were basically using their right to freedom of speech like this man?

    Bull****. People have come to your home unannounced and I bet you haven't shot even one of them.

    But by all means, keep posturing, Mr Tough Guy.

    If the preacher was on government property, then he has no right to force others, who cannot leave the line, to listen to his sermon. I don't care if he is Christian, Muslim, or a witch. If he wants to preach on a soapbox in a park, then by all means, he can do so, but not where government business is being conducted, and where people don't have any choice because they are standing in line for something that they are required by law to do.

    A park is also govt property. But who is the govt? Is it not us?

    The Mayor's Office of any town or city is also "public property" but I'd bet you won't get much farther than "God created the heav ..." when the officers come to arrest you for trespassing there.
