    pullnshoot25 told me about this. Be warned, they want to shoot video. And they are European media. They may want video of "those crazy Americans". But who knows.

    This guy is coming down today to interview my brother. I was requested for the interview but I am not really able to take the time away for it. The guy seems genuine, I talked with him for a bit over the phone, I can detect nothing crazy and he has an American education. His articles are neutral as well.

    It seems a lot of French people are curious about this since the Starbucks bullcrap has gone international and the idea of carrying a handgun is VERY foreign to the French unless you are a cop (typical of most places in the world.) In fact, I believe handgun ownership is limited to ownership and storage through a "shooting club."

    If I am wrong, you all get a big "I told you so."

    LOL. I often joke about their historical blunders but I do think there are some good ones left.

    I love joking about them too but we always have to remember that they funded our revolutionary war.

    They helped us during our Revolutionary War, we helped them during the World Wars.

    No hard feelings against the French here. But I wouldn't hesitate to crack a joke or two

    What's the most common phrase in the French vocabulary?

    Ah, I give up...
    Gun control isn't about guns -- it is about control.

    Old joke ad in a newspaper:....

    Italian army rifles for sale. Never fired, only dropped once.
