    There is pretty good evidence for the existence of JohnE. Perhaps I will worship him as my lord and savior.

    Two guys who liked guns died in the same week? I bet they were killed by Illuminati assassins as part of Obama's plan to take our guns before the black helicopters swoop in and take control of the country.

    Don't think Illuminati assassins are real? Just watch this video.

    It is my genuine belief that a JohnE based religion is just as likely to be correct as all the bronze age B.S. and pre-modern sci-fi clap trap that passes for religion these days.

    So, since I'm bearing witness to the coming of JohnE, does this make me "Pesqueeb the Baptist"?

    I think you may have to swirly a few people in the spare bathroom and claim it gives them rights to heaven first.

    To really get things off the ground JohnE needs to solve some small problems in mysterious ways via claimed ultimate powers, while ignoring the larger problems in the world.

    I had two hard boiled eggs in my lunch in stead of the usual one. Miracle? I think so.

    Dont know if this has been posted yet...a long but interesting read on teh 2d Amendment...

    I qouted one stat from it (1995 handgun killing numbers, US v. Canada,the next lowest. "...12,765 people were murdered, about 64,000 were wounded, and 250,000 were robbed with handguns in the United States...second bloodiest Western country, Canada, had only 170 handgun homicides in 1995." His response? "Baseball bats and cars kill people too, no one wants to regulate them. I think everyone should be armed." I work with some real prize winners.

    Doesn't the ultimate issue have less to do with citing statistics to co-workers and more to do with SCOTUS' opinion on the 2nd? I submit that since this Bogus opinion was written prior to the two landmark 2nd amendment cases of Heller and McDonald which established an individual rather than a collective right, it's not relevant.

    Yes, unload your shotgun indiscriminately off the balcony. That's all you need for self defense...especially when you have a security squad with AR's protecting you.

    looking for classic NE singletrack
    Show me ONE instance of robbers/home invaders continuing to press the attack after the homeowner fired a weapon. Just one. This isn't CoD where there's a running shootout and home invaders try to dodge bullets all the way up to you so that they can kill you with a knife.

    As a matter of fact I think that if I ever got a gun for home defense it'd be a pump action tactical shotgun with a blank as the first round. I can't imagine what a PITA it'd be repairing 00 buck rounds ripping through all of my interior walls...


    edit: One non-meth-lab-related example. If you're running a meth lab out of your basement and the local Hell's Angels chapter decides to pay you a visit, then yes, you might need an assault rifle.
