    I could see a market in Tshirts that say “GOOD GUY” on the front and “BAD GUY” on the back.

    Reminds me of a joke I heard Fred Eaglesmith tell:
    Two hunters are walking along a treeline, with their rifles ready. Suddenly a guy bursts out of the underbrush ahead of them waving his hands and yelling, “I’m not a deer, I’m not a deer” — one of the hunters raises his rifle and shoots him dead. The other says, “HEY!! Didn’t you hear him yelling that he wasn’t a deer?!” and the shooter replies, “I thought he said he WAS a deer!”

    Maybe the State of Georgia can issue badges to the entire population making everyone Deputy Rangers? Then everyone can demand everyone else show their papers!

    This is the scariest sentence:

    The police chief said no one can demand a person to show their gun permit. Under the new law, he as police chief and his officers cannot demand to see a firearms permit, Childress said.

    “This is an example of my concern with the new gun law that people will take the law into their own hands which we will not tolerate,” Childress said.

    The police cannot stop and verify whether an armed person has the proper credentials to be armed? Yet, stop-and-frisk is acceptable? We live in one fucked up country. I am so glad that I am a DINK. I could not stand the thought of my kid slaughter in school, on a bus, walking down the street by vigilante, cowboy wannabes.

    Everybody thinks they are Batman, but in reality, most of them are Jokers.

    While hiking, foolishly during deer season, I came upon three trucks parked on the side of the road with several people in camouflage arguing. There was a strong smell of beer and everyone, except me, was armed. I got just close enough to figure out he story. The guys were deer hunting with dogs.

    A lovely and sporting practice where the guys let their dogs out on one side of a section of land and wait, and drink beer, for the dogs to chase the harried deer onto the road where they can be shot. This incorporates the physical exertion of sitting in an easy chair, the nature appreciation of driving down a highway, and the deep empathy of Nero for the weak.

    Evidently the deer ran between the trucks and the hunter shot each others truck. I quietly went down the road before I was mistaken for a laughing deer.

    Of course, the cultural meme is not for shirts indicating good or evil intent, if you want to do it right, and in a way every red-blooded American can understand, the good guys would wear white hats and the bad guys black. That meme goes back to the earliest days of film when poor film quality and chases filmed from a distance made faces hard to see. That and audiences were not always the sharpest tools in the shed. Black and white hats made everything easier to understand.

    This was just two guys in a convenience store. What happens when there are more people, more stress, and more confusion. I’m waiting for the holidays when everyone is out of sorts and a display loudly falls over in a crowded mall and a half dozen armed men all pull guns… It might be best to avoid crowded places in Georgia until they figure this out.

    Perhaps:

    The Venerable Bead by Richard Condon is a terrible book. But it contains one scene in which a gunfight breaks out at an NRA convention.

  8. Trebuchet says

    As you say, it’s probably inevitable that one of these yahoos will shoot the other. Or they’ll shoot each other. Or a civilian in the background.

    It’s also inevitable that it’ll be Obama’s fault.

    @moarscienceplz: Ahhhhhh! Thanks. That does make more sense now. I had forgotten about the unwritten rider about non-white’s in the law.

    Thinking tragedies; Mano Singham what do you think of this latest episode of deja vu with Ham-arse again starting yet another needless war by kidnapping murdering and firing rockets at Israel?

  11. Reginald Selkirk says

    Speaking of bad guys, the Republicans will hold their 2016 national convention in Cleveland.

    Peace on Earth.

    Its what I actually want – despite some douchebags sayin’ otherwise.

    If only ..

    People be dying now.

    Coz idiots don’t know better.

    Insanity again. Like they learnt nothing from the last time or fifty.

    Hamassholes firing missiles when they know what will happen when they fire missiles.

    Dumb fucken scumbag pieces of shit.

    Fuck I hate how humans are.

    And the the crap they believe.

    Hamas, you soon to be fucken dead douchecanoes I’m talkin’ bout you.

    Surrender now. Turn yourselves in, give up and fucken just FUCKING STOP IT!!

    Stop with the terrorism.

    Stop with the hateful brain washing.

    Stop with the fucking firing rockets at Israel.

    And stop blaming Israel for shooting back at ya when when you do this shit.

    You cannot and will not win.

    You’ll just take your own people with you along with many innocent Israelis and others.

    Just.

    Flipping.

    Stop.

    Idiots.

    Go tell ‘em this, see if they’ll listen.

    I know they won’t.

    And so do you.

    All of yuz here even their online friends & fellow travellers.

    You know it Mano Singham.

    Everyone who is about to respond and damn me for telling the stark awful truth here knows it too.

    But so many of you will still blame Israel.

    For y’know. Not letting scumbags murder its people. Thus firing back.

    Because so many of you on FTB refuse to consider the Israelis and Jews as human beings who deserve to live their lives in peace.

    PS. Umm. Mano Singham feel free to edit the swearing out if you want. Meant to edit that more. Mea culpa.

  14. Mano Singham says

    I am not going to edit your rants since they reveal a lot about you that is not complimentary but I am warning you to not hijack threads in order to vent your spleen about your pet topic that has nothing to do with the original post. If you continue to do that, I will not hesitate to ban you.
