All I can say is, I'm glad I live in Michigan. Because we can get our CCW's. Carry Concealed Weapons permit.
I'm fully aware that people in Michigan are prone to "packing the heat".
I still think Detroit's basketball team should've been named the Pistols.
LOL! I agree!
I have many friends (well car people I am friendly with) who live in Motor City. There are certain areas that you just don't go....which is almost everywhere in Detroit. (That is, unless you were armed as well)
Now, back to this nutter who shot up the Church. I had to laugh in spite of Myself because I too was reminded of what Mr. Carlin had said. When he said it...I knew it could and most likely WOULD happen.
I am however, not laughing that some nut broke the law. I don't care what his 'reasons' were. They weren't good enough.
As for the poster 'Emerald' is it? I got a chuckle out of your reply about Jesus and his Cat Of Nine Tails. I recall going to Church and hearing that story as a small girl on how ol' JC got a bee in his bonnet for making his Temple 'A den of thieves'. (As I recall).
Yes, I remember reading how he flipped over the money changers tables and ummmm I think he MAY have had a whip or something and shooed them out of there.
This was always such a FUNNY story to Me. Why? Because, the very church I was hearing it preached about in, had a book store....where they SOLD things for profit. Whatta joke!
How people can put money in an offering plate after hearing a sermon like that...or go a buying some silly twaddle of a 'Footprints In The Sand' bookmark with a straight face is beyond Me.
As it were, the one word that flashes into My mind after reading about this story is "IRONY".
PS: If JC were to have a semi-automatic weapon in church....and if he were peeved off enough to blow a hole in someones head.....it would be okay because you see....he could just magically bring that person back to life.
Don't you guys know your Fairy Tales by now?
