  1. Its disappointing when someone makes a point then uses race and religion in the same point, generalizes, insults whatever.. At which point I start to think about how prejudiced said person is instead of, oh that is a good point regarding the issue at hand. Way to shoot yourself in the foot… Pun intended.

  2. Far more often, and far less amusing…are the incredibly FREQUENT situations where the mailman get’s winged by a jealous drunk, the boy across the street shoots his 8 year old friend because he thought it was a toy, the girl accidentally executes her Daddy because her brother left it loaded,one of those cars contains a person tempted by the obvious availability of a monotasking killing machine to take it and use it on the owner, but BY FAR, the most common problem with lingering access from a frontier time (when we actually needed them to shoot predators man and animal) is that someone in the house get’s wasted and kills them self. Usually a brother, cousin, or scorned member of a couple. But that’s not funny, just the truth.
