Once upon a time BF, Rudy was happy to cluck, what you gonna do, then Fred showed up. Rudy had an epiphany, sure he did, but it won’t last.
Rudi has a “Zumbo” moment... so is he going to go shoot teds pink AR-15?
It takes a big man to admit when you’re wrong. It also takes a scumball to flip whatever way the wind is blowing. And To tell you the truth, I think he’s just looking to get a bump back into the first tier *yawn*

Sorry, our right is not based on any degree of safety. It is a right period. A person has the right to protect themself anywhere, not just in their home. They also have the right to use them for hunting, competition, etc.
Sorry, beat ya by 4 minutes! ;o)
