Does anyone have an old "bloop gun" (M 79 ) laying around ?? How about good old " Ma deuce " but, come to think about it, it would take four of us old farts to carry it !

DHS labeled all of us"Possible Disgruntled Right-Wing Terrorists" being Veterans,and Guess What- Napoleantano is on the Short List for the Supreme Court! Jim W ,I think it would be beer rather than coffee,but someone has to look out for the country! Well Armed,Well Informed Well Trained--And Cranky as Hell!

LOL, this thread makes me chuckle. I can see you all sitting around a big table in a local diner, drinking coffee and bitching about politicians. Keep up the good fight guys, this country needs it.

for some people all you have to be is a Democrat to be a Demestic Terrorists. I for one think that Junior was the worst thing to happen to America.

I guess that some of us must be the Domestic Terrorists that the KGB, oops, DHS is crying about. Armed and love our Country, must be crazy. Dave, just remember the old Klingon proverb : a running man can cut a thousand throats in one night.

Man, that hurts!

I get caught with so much as a bb-gun, I go to prison for five years.

Best I can do is throw beer bottles at the bad guys!
