  1. Interesting article on North Dakota:
    “North Dakota is considering a permitless, or “Constitutional” carry bill”

    Thar’s yer sign… that we’ve wrapped around the bend with so many useless laws that we have to pass yet a nuther one to enable our Constitutional rights!!

  2. I cannot imagine being shot “several”
    times with any caliber from .22 to .45
    and still being alive!

  3. “Kirton was shot several times. He is being treated at the Winchester Medical Center.”

    I hope they treat him with the same medicine his victim gave him!

  4. @Radio, I knew a man who came home drunk and smelling like pussy.
    His girlfriend shot at him 5, emptied it, times with a .38, he was passed out on the couch.
    He got up and put her THRU the side of the house, I saw the broken 2x4s.
    He was out of the hospital in 3 days, collapsed lung, she was chained to her hospital bed for a week, then went to jail. Let him off because they recovered bullets from the couch.
    In fairness, he was 6’6″ and 300# of chiseled granite.
    I’m not a bad ass like Brad, have known a few.

  5. Soft nose bullets that expand when striking anything! People using weapons during a crime need to be exterminated!
