To them, "how" is any way they want, "when" is whenever they feel like it, and "why" is because they damn well want to. They're the very definition of self-indulgent. They're impulsive, antagonistic, and stubborn to a fault... much like an impetulant child.
Add to that is the fact that the ones that squawk the loudest are invariably the most ignorant. Claiming that some private business is infringing on their 2nd amendment rights by prohibiting firearms.OCDO, Defensive Carry, USACarry, and the various state forums all serve there purpose promoting open and concealed carry.

Just a matter of time until one of them pops.
Maybe there wasn't but I could have sworn I had seen a made for TV movie of the caine mutiny that was absolutely 3rd rate compared to the 1954 movie.Sam Spade;14521954 said:There was a remake? (Not that it could possibly compare to the Bogie version.)
And the blame will go to those who decried the behavior leading up to the event saying that the pressure of peer rejection led the poor soul to act.Dragoon44;14521390 said:But until one pops they will feed on each other and pump each other up.

"Real life", now there is the problem...their reality is a fantasy land...OXCOPS;14524614 said:ya know, not that I will lose any sleep over it, but I wonder just how miserable some of those people are in real life.
