    Mark your calendars. Dec 14, 2015 12:34pm CST by Patience John

    "So to wrap it all up, here is my Gunsmoked pool:

    First Time an Open Citizen is deholstered as prank or criminal act:

    0-1 days : 1 in 2

    1-3 days : 3 in 4

    1 Week: 9 in 10

    First Time an Open Citizen is deholstered and robbed:

    0-1 days : 1 in 10

    1-3 days : 2 in 7

    1 Week: 1 in 3

    First Time an Open Citizen is deholstered and killed:

    0-1 days : 1 in 25

    1-3 days : 1 in 20

    1 Week: 1 in 10

    First Time an Open Citizen is deholstered and gun used in another crime:

    0-1 days : 1 in 2

    1-3 days : 4 in 5

    1 Week: 10 in 11

    We're all going to pay taxes, and die.

    Except that you cannot find that tool that you just put away that was sitting on your bench top for 10 yrs collecting dust and now that you desperately need.

    Yes, but let's please continue to focus on what's really, truly important here. And that's the fact that possibly as early as just 15 days from now we're all going to have our guns grabbed by bad guys and we will then be shot and killed!

    The only good news then is that if shot and killed, we will surely miss the blood in the streets that have been predicted.

    Oh you can find that missing sock! It's behind the couch.

    At least according to Information as they told Steven Wright:
    I got up one morning and couldn't find my socks, so I called Information. She said, "Hello, Information." I said, "I can't find my socks." She said, "They're behind the couch." And they were!

    LOL. I think MAC702's comment wins this thread.

    I'm familiar with rhetoric like this supposed "2nder" (who thinks the RKBA has ANYTHING to do with hunting, unless he means hunting for tyrants, that is, but I digress).

    As a Hispanic male in my twenties I would be a prime candidate for the fear-mongering "minorities would be shot for OCing!" scenario. The only time I've been stopped for the color of my skin was by highway patrol BEFORE I even began carrying (dark times ).
    I carry to defend my loved ones; Desensitizing and educating are secondary & tertiary reasons. Anything else is unintended.

    “Life, liberty, and property do not exist because men have made laws. On the contrary, it was the fact that life, liberty, and property existed beforehand that caused men to make laws in the first place.” - Frederic Bastiat

    The link took me straight away. What a pack of lies. Sometimes stupid has to be confronted, please go back and leave a comment. People reading this will think his drivel is truth.
    "Firearms stand next in importance to the Constitution itself. They are the people's liberty teeth (and) keystone... the rifle and the pistol are equally indispensable... more than 99% of them by their silence indicate that they are in safe and sane hands. The very atmosphere of firearms everywhere restrains evil interference .When firearms go, all goes, we need them every hour." -- George Washington

    He will be proven wrong. The event is too near. A more experienced rabble rouser would predict an event in the much more distant future.
