    Mine was fawn colored and about 80 lbs. In her prime. She was so loyal and such a great friend. Although she was as tough as any beast walking, she was nothing like the media version of a pit bull.

    None. I do have a pretty badass sling spear though, which suffices for all the hunting Im interested in.

I also have his compound bow, which was his primary hunting weapon.
    Dang that jogged my memory, need to change my vote from 0 to 1. Forgot about a colt .45 pistol from WW2 left to me by an uncle that is locked in a box in the attic.

    His damage has been controlled to this point, but who knows what the future will bring. She seemed to have the same thing told to to her when she looked for help, well if he gets arrested we can do something...

    Well he has been arrested, several times, spent some time behind bars, but will not spend any serious time there until he gets caught.
    A great article. It's extremely frustrating that we won't be able to deal with mental health issues any time soon. The government certainly won't and mental health is a health insurer's worst nightmare as it's lifelong care and expensive (pharmaceutical companies and psychiatrists love it though).

    Yeah, I'm not a hunter. Nothing against it (except those that sit in trees and shelters and whatnot, which isn't hunting IMO), just never really got into it despite loving the outdoors. Keeping them because they've been in my family for a good while and in case my son ever expresses an interest as I still have a lot of family that hunt.

My teacher painted a picture completely the opposite of what is portrayed in the movies about some responsible gun owner pulling a gun to thwart a robbery, in fact it was much closer to the response Zimmerman has been through since he used a gun to POSSIBLY save his life.

    He told us even under the most perfect circumstances with all factors on your side that he promised us it would be the worst day of our life. I would never pull my weapon unless there was no other possible way to get out of it, if getting out of the house would put the threat to an end, that's what i would do.

    Understand this though, if you know what you are doing a gun most certainly is NOT A FAILURE as a home defense tool, you just have to understand the best way to use it, and never use it under the wrong circumstances. I agree with the no need to uselessly raise the stakes in any situation.

    I do not mean to hit a nerve, but I can't help but think at least a few of the adults that were slain by that monster were wishing for something substantial to fight back with, wouldn't you agree?
    I am sure they would have liked to have an armed security guard on the site, as it might have minimized the carnage. However, I think everyone would have been better off if this monster's mother didn't have an armory in her house with an automatic rifle which he used to cut through a door to enter the school and commit the murders. He was unable to purchase a weapon on his own. Without his mother's cache of weapons, including this automatic rifle, this horrific incident might not have occurred.

    Personally, I think a dog and some shurikens would be a much better combo.

    A HEALTH INSURERS WORST NIGHTMARE...well, if nothing else i'm sure you have just hit on the reason all of our worthless bought and paid for politicians will keep the direction of the talks away from any improvement in this area.

    Did she have an automatic??

    If so I wonder how she got it. Forgive me I haven't read anything about an automatic at all. But let's not fool ourselves the VT shooter didn't have any automatics at all. In fact had two handguns and one of them a 22. And he killed more.
