Hehe... But seriously... Everyone seems to know their weapons. I've never held a gun, and i think i've just SEEN one, 4 or less times.

I've only once had one pointed at me, and that was in sales of all situations. I mean, come on, can't they just say 'NO' without getting dramatic? TongueOut

I've had a loaded gun pointed at me once, I was six and waiting in the parking lot at school for my aunt to pick me up. Two older tough kids who were usually friends were arguing. One said, "yeah I've got a gun!" and pulled a bolt action rifle out of the trunk, took aim and worked the bolt. The other guy yelled back, "Yeah, well, I've got a shield!" and picked me up and held me in front of him. My only thought for some reason was that the bullet could go through of me and hit the guy. They stared at each other for what seemed like a long time, but was probably only seconds. Let out a laugh and lowered the gun and me. If it was a prank, they never let on, and no one else seemed to notice.

My father hunted, and was big on teaching safe, responsible weapon handling to everyone in the family. He had had close calls himself and had friends seriously injured by careless and lazy gun handling.

I have an interest in firearms, and own a few, but I haven't fired a shot in three years.

Yet strangely, over the course of my life on several occasions people have made a habit of handing me loaded .45 cal. pistols a little too casually for my taste. They're not playthings.

blah blah stuff blah blah obscure pop culture reference blah blah clever turn of phrase blah blah bad pun blah blah bad link blah blah zzzz.....

I think they carry, most of them, but it's not visible in any way. American cops look way cooler. They look like damn superheroes or something! All those gadgets.

I was in Italy once, and i saw this lazy ass douchebag cop, carrying a sub-machine gun. That was really overkill (He was guarding the vatican state).

But yeah, the site owner is a marine i noticed. Pretty cool.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
