But what if the burrito you wanted on the menu wasn't within arm's reach?  How would you be able to shoot at it in order to show the cashier which burrito you were really interested in purchasing?   icon_confused

And what if someone came into the Chipotle while you were shooting at the menu choices and they objected to your doing so?  How would you then point it at their crotch while demanding they acknowledge that you're "The Duke of New York, A-Number-1, the Big Man, that's who!"?

The AR-15 is the barbie doll of the adult male shooter.  Have you seen how many customization items that people make for those things?

I want one myself, but it would stay at home or go to the gun range with me, not to the local burrito shack...

I gave up on the concept of banning guns ages ago.  But I support reasonable applications of gun control.  One of the more reasonable applications would be allowing a business to tell you NOT to bring firearms into their establishment.   

And before it comes up, that's NOT the same as allowing a business owner to refuse service to gays, blacks or jews.  Guns you can leave in the car.  Your color or sexual preference can't be.

Unless you have a detachable penis. Remember that 90's song? Anyone? paranoid

NRA pitches the idea of "mandatory firearms training" in public schools that would be required for students to progress to the next grade.

Seriously...there are no words.

This pitch sounds pretty nutty, but it's worth noting that some countries do have forms of mandatory military training and service.  I was about to point out Germany as an example, but turns out they just got rid of the policy a few years ago.

On the one hand, I could see teaching firearm safety.  On the other, I can't see tying a child's progression through the education system to his ability to field strip an AK-47 for christ's sake.

Offer it as an option, fine.  Don't friggin' force it on kids.

Not for school-age kids though, right?

Oh no, I think it was for Germany it was somewhere around age 18-21.  I don't have any direct knowledge of how other countries with mandatory service handle it.

Lots of countries have compulsory military service.  I think it's usually like 1 or 2 years at most.  And it's certainly not for folks under 18.

Let's have our Open Carry protest at  Dealey Plaza.    It's like they're competing for new ways to look bad.

That's nauseating. How dare those Brits not celebrate the Fourth of July. It's so hard to believe that this stupidity resonates with people.

To be fair, the Brits do celebrate the Gunpowder Treason Plot.

Could he have at least avoided smirking for his mug shot? 

What do you prove by taking a rifle into a friggin' airport without even practicing basic gun safety?  One of the biggest no no's of safely owning a gun is NOT pointing the goddamn thing at people...even if you just happened to do so while shifting it from one shoulder to another.

I did not know it was legal to carry a rifle into an airport other than having them secured and declared in your luggage for travel.   So what statement was he trying to make?
