I guess we all need to have guns in the background of our homes for all Zoom occasions.

Seems many repukes now consider this normal and somehow ego-enhancing, appealing to the millions of seditionists. I hope Garland does a full sweep after confirmation. We got a problem, and not just Houston.

26. Agreed. I don't recall ever seeing anything like those (born 1968).

Of course had access to a pump pellet gun from the 20' or 30's when I was 8 or 9 that had a brass pump handle and was like a sniper pistol. That thing was cool as hell. Looked kind of like this:



That and a .22 when I was 12.

But not tactical looking toy guns.

40. Only let one friend use it. It was totally out of the norm in the suburbs.

If I had ever truly misused it I would have literally rue (or rued?) the day.

It was beautiful piece of pump pistol history.

31. I had a Fanner 50! Loved it. Had a great musket cap gun too. Real wood and steel. We had fun and

knew it was for fun. NOBODY thought about shooting anybody with a real gun. Although I do recall a few BB gun thugs...
Daniel Boone, the Virginian, Gunsmoke, The Rifleman, High Chaparral, Wild, Wild West, Combat, Rat Patrol.. So many more. Am I dating myself??

36. I spent five weeks in the hospital last year.

On their TV system, everyday I watched Bonanza, Gunsmoke, Rawhide, The Rifleman, and Wagon Train. On Friday and Saturday nights they had Combat, Rat Patrol and 12 O’clock High. It was like reliving my childhood.

I had never known that in the last year of The Rifleman his love interest was Patricia Blair — who played Rebecca Boone on Daniel Boone. One episode that year also costarred Ed Ames — Mingo, although he played a bad guy.

23. look on the bookshelf behind boebert.... she has 2 copies of Dressed to Kill

there's a couple of books with that title. one is about spiritual warfare. the other is about bras and breast cancer. I wonder which one she has?

Rick Renner's book Dressed To Kill is considered by many to be a true classic on the subject of scriptural warfare. The original version, which sold more than 400,000 copies, is a curriculum staple in Bible schools worldwide.

16. It doesn't get much deeper than that, does it? Growing up in Midwest, everyone had guns, but it

for HUNTING and an occasional rodent eating your whatever. This is now a very real problem and not what the framers envisioned when muskets were the state of the art firearm. Kentucky Long rifles were the latest, improved model.

and back then defending one’s property and family was for real. Especially for those who moved West.

33. exactly. Times have changed dramatically and most of the weaponry is largely optional. Unless

you want to take out the "government" which is where this is headed by a good number (sadly). And NO, they are not "patriots." They are seditionists and traitors.

17. I remember when we had guns for self defense and we kept them hidden out of sight.

That way we wouldn't attract thieves and would not tip off bad people where our weapons are kept.

Nowadays, freaks are Look At Me! Look At Me! I'm armed and dangerous!
