    By all means do present your verifiable case for America always being fascinated with guns. And put heavy emphasis on the FASCINATED part. This I want to to see.

    Maybe you can help make my case for me?

    You have no case. This is the point.
    It's like you're dreaming of Gorgonzola when it's clearly Brie time, baby. Step into my office.

    No. We aren't like him...and we can do better. Have to do better.

    He may well be a coward too, but if the report from the just-released inmate is correct, he really is non compos mentis.

    Sharp shooting is a handy talent to have if you're a sniper. However, the olymic shooting events such as the pentathalon were meant to simulate soldiers on the battle field and doesn't diminish the fact the gun was designed for one purpose and that is to kill, kill, kill.

    I was a world class ISU skeet shooter ISU skeet was designed to train us to shoot down martian flying saucers

    ISU Double trap was designed to teach us how to deal with 2 saucers

    I guess you think the only purpose of a knife is to kill as well


    Why should anyone take your posts seriously when you post such oozing emotobabbling drivel?

    who knows-maybe the cops should hook him up to a car battery and get the answers we'd all like to see?
