Why Do You Have So Much Ammo?

FOUGHT TILL THE END - A Vietnamese machine gunner lies dead in his foxhole with hundreds of shells surrounding him. The knee-deep spent shells are silent proof that he fought to his death when Viet Cong overran his position at the Michelin Rubber Plantation, 45 miles northwest of Saigon. The battleground was retaken today and over a hundred corpses recovered.

    1. I could add to the list, but that's a hell of a start! :)We sang the Recessional at the close of our yearly Commencement exercise each year at military school. How well I remember the heat in the auditorium and our wool uniforms.

  2. Re: adding to the list, I agree. Whenever someone says, "no one needs", that is only an opinion and otherwise it is NONE of the government's business or within their delegated powers to impose anyone's opinions on others. So when someone asserts that "no one needs", most often re: guns and ammo, they are free to apply that ONLY to themselves--and their minor children. --Ron W

    1. "no one needs"

      None of the government's or anyone else's in the world's business. Talk about one of my pet peeves! :) 'Why do you have...' Because I want such and such. Just amazed at the brainwashed populace these days.

  3. Yes and generally they claim to be liberals!! Such pronouncements are those of meddling authoritarians because they want government to impose "why do you have" or "no one needs" by force with "gun violence", if necessary which is a complete anathema to the classical liberalism of the Founders' Republic. --Ron W

  4. Hi Brock,
    What "anymouse-@9:12AM" said......'Good ol' Rudyard!! and as for the "no one needs" or "why do you have/need" as stated they are "Opinions" ONLY!!!!!!! and as we already know, "Opinions are like assholes.....everybody has one!!!!!!" SO!, Our "Opinionated anti-gun assholes" can keep "their' opinions to their selves!!!!
