    (This, of course, is addressed to the press.)

    Need more info. Did the credit card reader record the credit card numbers?

    If it did, hopefully the vendor would notify the card holders.
    I'll make you an offer: I will argue and fight for all of your rights, if you will do the same for me. That is the only way freedom can work. We have to respect all rights, all the time--and strive to win the rights of the other guy as much as for ourselves.

    If I am equal to another, how can I legitimately govern him without his express individual consent?

    There is no human being on earth I hate so much I would actually vote to inflict government upon him.

    I know that's not an open carry issue, but just be aware if anyone is offering antique firearms for sale. It would be nice if we could get a list of what he lost.

    Not sure why the news is reporting this now - it happenedbefore November, at least.

    The dealer was followed from the gun show. When he stopped to eat, his van was hit.

    Really? I'm sorry - I thought this just happened. It did make me wonder if there was a gunshow over the weekend that I missed....

    I just saw it on the TV news as well - my guess is Hanover didnt want the word spread yet.

    When I was at the last gun show at RIR, so....November?....they made the announcement to watch where you stop after the show. They told us the same Cracker Barrel story, so it must have occurred in October maybe?

    Humm... Looks like a perfect fishing hole for a sting. Set out the bait and sit in a rocking chair till you get a bite.
