What were you restraining yourself from saying/doing?

Surely you would not incite violence. But giving strangers "dirty looks" is a good way to instigate a fight, isn't it?

Restraint to not vomit. Not once did I mention hostility,that was your conclusion jumping.

I wouldn't know, is it?

Shit, man. I asked a question. I didn't jump to any conclusions. There's no mention of hostility.
Vomiting is the answer I was looking for. Thanks.

^Here's the hostility. From you. Or are you unbelievably naive? I mean, you're certainly aware that a person with a sticker of a gun on their truck is probably a man who could let a dirty look bother him.

Guns make cowards brave.

Sir, you must have me mistaken for someone else. I don't trade in violence, although I did hurt someones feelings once. I appreciate your opinion. Ok, so you didn't get the answer from me you anticipated. What's the saying; 'Ask 100 people and you'll get 100 answers' So? Perhaps a career as a prosecuting attorney is not for you. What? just because I didn't put a smiley-face emotion next to the words 'is it' as an assist for the reader, you will assign whatever meaning you were originally looking for.They call that jumping to conclusions. Take it with a grain of salt; or a truckload. Now let's get back to being friendly. Case dismissed.

That discussion can only happen in America where people will shoot you for looking at them funnily.

Think about it.

Remember that incident he wrote in TRFZB about his father's animosity towards the neighbors, to the point he said "Rosie get our gun", and his mother was pleading not to shoot?
Remember that incident when an armed man barged into the Log Cabin and Frank talked him into throwing his gun down the well (Pauline Butcher's report shows how badass that was)?

GOP candidate for Georgia governor holds bump stock giveaway

Image

A Republican candidate for Georgia governor said Monday he opposes any ban on bump stocks and will give away one of the devices.

“The tragedy in Las Vegas broke my heart, but any talk of banning or regulating bump stocks is merely cheap political lip service from career politicians. In reality, the bump stock is the new, shiny object politicians are using to deceive voters into believing they are taking action against gun violence," state Sen. Michael Williams said in a statement.

"Many firearms experts determined the Las Vegas shooter’s use of a bump stock actually prevented more casualties and injuries due to its inconsistency, inaccuracy, and lack of control. There is zero evidence that banning bump stocks would prevent any gun violence deaths," Williams continued.

Williams said he will give away a bump stock "to one lucky winner" in a show of defiance as momentum grows for more restrictions in the wake of the Las Vegas mass shooting.

"Georgia's gun owners deserve a governor who will stand with them when liberals and Hollywood elites attack our fundamental rights. That's why I am standing for the second amendment and giving away a bump stock as a show of support," Williams said in the statement.

Bump stocks increase the rate of fire for semi-automatic weapons, and a number of the devices were found in the hotel room of the Las Vegas shooter.

Lawmakers have unveiled legislation to ban the devices, but GOP leaders say that the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives should instead take the lead on reviewing regulations.

The National Rifle Association opened the door to new restriction on bump stocks but says it opposes legislation.

Williams pointed to mental health as the key issue politicians should focus on to reduce gun violence.

"You cannot regulate evil out of existence. Blaming guns or bump stocks for the actions of a lunatic, is the same as blaming McDonald’s for heart disease,” he said.

Williams is a long-shot candidate, going up against well-known state politicians like Lt. Gov. Casey Cagle and Secretary of State Brian Kemp in the GOP primary. Cagle and Kemp have reportedly raised millions for their campaigns, while Williams is expected to use his personal finances to fund his campaign.

We're still not going to do anything about guns, though.

^The numbers on the pool cards are too high. In the US there's almost one mass shooting every day.

Good thing you don't live in the USA then isn't it.
