Barry and the ‘RATS are going to have a tough time pinning this one on the NRA and “assault weapons”.

Ever had government cheese? That’s some good eats. Back when we were kids, everyone in town had so much government cheese (they’d give it to everyone once the poor folk got theirs) that I doubt the grocery store ever sold any during that time.

He won’t be given a choice of cheese or anything else on his dinner plate for quite a few years after this.

Some high rent fancy food pantry to have a security guard!

It is the next logical step once they ban guns. They would be just doing it for your own good, of course.

He might have killed her because he just found out she was 8 years older than he is.

I still introduce my wife as my "first wife" even after 32 years.

Actually, I haven't spoken to her in over three months. We're not fighting, I just don't like to interrupt.

I believe being a convicted felon makes it harder to commit murder with a gun. So, what does a poor man going to do? Why, bother with a gun, just reach for a knife!

One question: Is Roy Lee Gooden too old to be Obama’s son?

Seems he likes to stab.

According to Dallas County records, the couple married in 2005 and Roy Lee Gooden filed for divorce from his wife in April. The divorce was petition was dismissed in October after he failed to follow through with it.

In August 2010, Irving police responded to Roy Lee Gooden’s apartment after receiving a report of a stabbing involving two women. His relationship to them is not clear.

When police arrived, officers found that Roy Lee Gooden had a stab wound on his cheek. One woman told police that he had walked down the stairs with an open pocket knife, saying, “I’m going to kill you and your mother.”

The woman told police that he then lunged at both of them and a struggle for the knife ensued. He was cut on the cheek and the daughter was cut on the arm the struggle, police records state.
