thinking about Sen Kennedy and his family history this morning and the thought came to me that some herd of numbnut gun rights dickwads will want to show up at his funeral at Arlington wearing their guns to demonstrate their constitutional rights.

@farmerman,
Is that a crossbow in your pocket or are you happy to see me?

@dyslexia,
It will be interesting to see if the right wing talk shows cross the line too.

@Gala,
For an example of what to expect, read the comments on Sarah Palin's Facebook page.

Don't do so on a full stomach.

@Butrflynet,
I can imagine. I don't have a FB account. Can I read it without having to register?

I was once at a party with Senator Ted. I "accidentally" poked him in the ass with a fork. I said excuse me and the entire ugly incident was soon forgotten. I don't even think he noticed the jab.

@dyslexia,
Didn't even watch it on TV.

One name: Mary Jo Kopeckne

Actually don't own a gun, but am considering buying a shotgun.

@Finn dAbuzz,
so just between the two of us Finn, I'm the gun owner and you're not, somehow this seems ironic to me.

You know Dys, on a superficial level it is ironic, but I thought you nuanced Progressives wouldn't be caught dead on a superficial plane.

You get subtlety and thrive on ambiguity, unlike the unwashed masses who cling to religion and their guns, and so I'm a little disappointed that you've focused on such an obvious and simplistic paradox.

I have no idea why you own a gun, and am only mildly curious as to the reason. I don't own a gun for several reasons:

1) Never felt the need for a penis extension
2) Never have and never will hunt as long as grocery stores exist. I'm not anti-hunting in the sense that I think it should be banned or that hunters are villains, I just know that the remorse I would feel in killing a mammal would always overwhelm whatever atavistic pleasure the act generated.
3) I am a father and if I gun I owned ever resulted in the death of one of my children, I think I would turn it on myself
4) Until recently, I've never thought I needed one for defense

After Katrina, I saw how quickly society can break down, and that was hardly the worst catastrophe we might face.

My kids are all grown and out of the house now and so I only have to worry about my wife using the gun on me.

I'm getting old. I don't have as much faith in my prowess with a baseball bat as I did early on.

So, I'm thinking about buying me a shotgun.

The man lives in New Mexico. Does that answer your question? I believe it is against state law in NM not to own a firearm and not to display it during certain official occasions e.g. church services.
