    I've never been so frightened in my life

    I was minding my own business at lobby day, unarmed with only a camera between myself and eternity....when one of the anti Gun people pointed what looked like two guns and possibly a bomb.

    I was in fear for my life and the people near me.

    Say what you will, one thing for sure, that exact move is enough to get you shot by a police officer under some conditions.

    That's an example of the dangers of Group Polarization. Something about them, they don't seem local. I think you'd be surprised, but a large portion of the leftist crowd here in RICHMOND city are not as anti gun as you might think. What I see right there, is a bunch of pretentious brats that are not as smart or as versed in the world as they think they are.

    That group of kids...I hope they did not damage your truck too much.

    I'm pretty sure that I would not need a firearm to straighten this group of kids out...you know, just "talk" to them as southsiders of chicago does.

    May the others had sticker-shooters !

    You seem easily scared .... all those white folks an' all.

    Please, please, please, please, please, please pull that trigger. I've always wanted to see someone's thumb bent backwards traumatically.

    It also looks like the guy is in the process of switching his left-hand trigger finger for the Hawaiian Good Luck Wave finger. Iff'n you can't control your hand-gun you should just leave it in your pocket and make yourself happy.

    But what I really want to know is when you will wipe the SD card clean, even though you have reason to believe it contains evidence of a crime? Or is that just something that certain state agencies do with hard drives that may or may not be connected to survellience cameras that may or may not be operating but we can't tell you because National Security?

    stay safe.

    PS - can you offer to accept a settlement before you even file a civil suit?

    I swung by the City Motel early this morning to see if you had checked in after midnight. Nope. Did you pick some other place to spend the night?

    Looked for you at breakfast this morning. Nope. Guess you must have found a place you thought had better food/ambience - or was it a place that did not have people carrying guns?

    Your disguise must have been very good because everybodly else at Lobby Day claims they did not see you there.

    Maybe by next year you will have conquered your social anxiety. Sure hope so.

    You could have said, "Well, I hope nobody tries to kill you. You don't even have the means to defend yourself!"

    Marshaul....I was having trouble with snappy comebacks today. To many surprises. One of the anti's was walking with her cell phone taking pictures of people at the VCDL Rally. I was following her taking video of her taking pictures. She spotted me and walked up taking my picture to about 6 inches. All I could think of was "Don't Cross the Streams"

    Then she said "What are you packing"....That's a tough thing to answer for someone not wearing a GSL sticker or a gun.......She wasn't real good looking so I just said, nothing

    Not only did you straighten them out - you shrunk'em and maybe knocked a few of their teeth out....

    Wow. Not a handful of brain cells between them all. I sure hope after these brats grow up they get their eyes opened a little.

    What a coincidence. Yesterday I had to take "The Queen" to Sentara Princess Anne's Emergency Department to be (re)admitted for sepsis as a result of an open surgical wound of the ankle. Their waiting room was packed to capacity, so I resorted to standing at the periphery of despair, near the hallway that leads to the Outpatient registration area.

    One time I looked over toward the ED registration, and there was a nurse pointing a gun at me! Normally I react severely to such rudeness, but the incongruity of the event tempered my actions. After a split second to digest the scene, I realized that it was not a gun. The nurse was pointing someone toward the hallway (where I was, 15 feet away), and holding a black pen along her trigger finger, er, index finger. Pointed directly at my head. A less contemplative man would have ventilated her.

    Very uncomfortable adrenalin dump.

    Well, since I was unarmed I was waiting for him to call me BIG BOY then I'd have enough justification to throw my loose leaf notebook.
