In Tennessee, 10 Year Old Gets In School Lunchroom Suspension over Pizza Slice Shaped Like Gun.
And, a Smyrna, Tennessee 10 year old was suspended from his regular lunchroom table for waving around and threatening other students with a slice of pizza with bites taken out of it to make it into the shape of a gun. Hes sitting at the silent table for the rest of the semester.
Dumbest thing ever. Ostracize a kid for a piece of pizza shaped like a gun. Makes me want to vomit.
Oh and the girl at the bottom of the article probably cleans up quite nicely.
So true, yet he probably had a much higher chance of surviving .45 hardball that a .357 magnum or a .357 SIG.
burglar in weatherford tx? must have a death wish..
Here’s another one:
A burglar is found in the victim yard stealing items from a shed. When confronted, the burglar shoots at his victim. The victim returns fire and obviously is a much better shot. One less burglar to pick up after....
For the record, the burglar had just been released from jail only a few days prior to this incident.
Went to a gun show this past weekend. It was packed.
I hope nobody ever breaks in to one of my places. What do I use if they do? AR? Sig? Kimber? Glock? 12 gauge pump? Taurus? H&K? Walther? Etc?
And which one? .22? 9? 38? Etc?
I suppose to keep from getting confused and wasting time I just use them all:)
Nothing belt fed? Get a life!
LOL! I wish.
I expect you probably watch those gun shows on cable. Sons of Guns, etc? I like them.
"Belt fed" indeed. You damn showoff!
Have a great Christmas my friend!
