What are your thoughts about a patron saint for handgunners? Do you feel it would be helpful or harmful to have a historical religious figure associated with the ownership, use and carry of handguns? Other thoughts? [url]http://www.possentisociety.com/[/url] edited to add link

Man saves village with handgun and lizard. Sounds like a much more positive role model for handgun owners than the average Hollywood fare. Count me in.

I think we also need a few automotive-related saints. Here are a few potential candidates: 1. Saint Octane: The patron saint of acceleration (Common prayer heard on freeway entrance ramps: "Saint Octane, don't fail us now!") 2. Saint Freon: The patron saint of refrigeration (very popular in the South!) 3. Saint Saganaw: The patron saint of good handling. 4. Saint Trico: The patron saint of good poor-weather visability. 5. Saint Lucas: The patron saint of unreliable foreign car electrical systems.

As I understand it there are already many patron saints of various occupations / vocations. I found the thought of a patron saint for handgunners interesting. I wondered what the perception of others would be. Oh, I'm not Catholic BTW.

I thought Lucas was already the "Prince of Darkness." Why do the Brit's like warm beer? They have Lucas refrigerators.

Let's just say that we all 'worship' at St. Possenti's shrine every time we go to a gun show! Eric The(Relapsed)Hun[>]:)]

Personally, I have no problem with it. The thought of a plastic Saint statue on my dash with a lizard and a pistol cracks me up. Not to mention how the telling of some poor ignorant soul about it would make my day![}:D]

heck yea !!!!!! im all for it thats one dash board icon that should be a must have for any dyciple of the gun. You could then tell an anti. "I will pray to St. Gabriel Possenti that you may someday understand". Hey i could have a St. Gabriel Possenti mural painted on my tailgate . just like the gansta's do on their low riders [;)] COUNT ME IN for a yes vote
