Merry Christmas and FYYFF

Hey. This is a quick message for all the anti-gun people out there running their mouths like they know what's better for me than I do.

Josh Brent, the idiot Cowboys player who killed his friend in the car crash a few weeks back, was driving a 512 Hp Mercedes at the time of the accident. That 512 Hp Mercedes is the automotive equivalent of an "assault weapon" as you people like to call any firearm that is black and scary looking.

Until you people recognize that not calling for the immediate ban of all cars over a certain power rating because if you choose to drink and drive in them you are much more likely to kill someone than if you happen to be ashamedly motoring along in a 30 hp Yugo, is the exact same thing you are doing with all these knee-jerk calls for banning scary firearms because they, like the car, can be misused by someone who is mentally deficient, you are not having a conversation in good faith.

If you don't blame the tool in the first death, why blame the tool in the second.

In 2010 there were 34,485 deaths caused by motor vehicles. There were 31,347 deaths by firearms.

Obviously, cars are a bigger problem. If you insist on blaming the tool, at least be consistent.

Do we need to stockpile V8's now?

That Mercedes was a twin turbo V12. I'm actually slowly trying to decide between that exact car (S600) or the GL550 as Mona's next vehicle. (Used , of course.)
