    Now with this silly business of being offended is B/S and disingenuous, I suppose we should ban any equipment, tool, vehicles or anything that has taken a life or maimed for life should be banned for life. This is just attempt to capitalize on a tragedy to further a political agenda or candidate, now this is offensive and a insult to anyone's intelligence. Perhaps we could have a hanging tree in the town square and charge for admission and hang the SOB who shot Giffirds.

    So ... what if a convicted felon wins the raffle?

    Dude. All I wrote was that it is my favorite model Glock, I'd replace the springs and load it hot. Now, the 22 is a fine model and I think .40 is the best round, but I don't find the size and weight (including rounds) worth the capacity.

    1. I didn't say it was my favorite over all. he 1911, which I mentioned, is my favorite. I also like small-frame .357s. Shotguns and rifles would be kinda off topic, so I'll leave those aside.

    2. What?

Should people be incensed that someone is raffling off a Ford, the same make of vehicle that was used in the mass-runover? Even though it is a different model and type of vehicle and the incident happened several months ago? Just because it is a "Ford" brand vehicle?

    That's about how much the one has to do with the other.
    The purpose of the Mustang is not to kill people.

    It depends on intention of the driver, same as what is the intention of the gun owner.

    I agree with that. They do need to get a clue. Of course, we have the more frightening alternative is that they know exactly what they are doing and want to get this sort of reaction.

    How did you feel about the mosque they wanted next to the 9-11 center?

    It was an entirely different group of Muslims who wanted it built. It was probably their right to build it right there but just not the way to go, at least to me.

    No. When he bough the ticket he agreed to be eligible or forfeit. I figure.



    Anyway, I almost forgot...

    I'd pop that sweet thing off like 'bing bing bing' all night long.

    What is the primary purpose and main function of a Mustang?

    What is the primary purpose and main function of a firearm?
