WEEK OF NOVEMBER 9, 2003

LEAD STORY

In October, West Point, Ky., hosted 12,000 visitors for the weekend Knob Creek Gun Range Machine Gun Shoot, billed as the nation's largest, with a separate competition for flame-throwers. Especially coveted is "The Line," where 60 people (waiting list is 10 years long to be admitted) get to fire their machine guns into a field of cars and boats, and during which a shooter might run through $10,000 in ammunition. Among the champions: Samantha Sawyer, 16, the top women's submachine gunner for the last four years. One man interviewed by the Louisville Courier-Journal said he met his wife at a previous Shoot, knowing that "if she could accept flame-throwing as a hobby, she could accept anything." Said another: "This is one of those times when you know this (the U.S.) is the greatest place on Earth." [Courier-Journal, 10-19-03]

That crap is mainly published in leftist liberal rags. They print it in whatever context gets the best shock value. I'm ashamed that you read that drivel, now go wash your eyes out with soap [;D]

I agree that it shows the US is the greatest place on Earth. Dont you?
