Situational Issue: You're walking down a deserted street with your wife and
two small children. Suddenly, a dangerous looking man with a huge knife
comes around the corner, locks eyes with you, screams obscenities, raises
the knife, and charges. You are carrying a Glock .40 and you are an expert
shot. You have mere seconds before he reaches you and your family. What do
Well, that's not enough information to answer the question! Does the man
look poor or oppressed? Have I ever done anything to him that would inspire
him to attack? Could we run away? What does my wife think? What about the
kids? Could I possibly swing the gun like a club and knock the knife out of
his hand? What does the law say about this situation? Does the Glock have
an appropriate safety built into it? Why am I carrying a loaded gun and
what kind of message does this send to society and my children? Is it
possible he'd be happy with just killing me? Does he definitely want to
kill me or would he just be content to wound me? If I were to grab his
knees and hold on, could my family get away while he was stabbing me?
This is all so confusing! I need to debate this with
some friends for a few days to try to come to a conclusion.

It was a good story until you brought up the word "Winchester".
Oh I have several very nice Remington 700's that I have had custom built. I have no problem with them, its that "W" company I don't like.
Grandpa, if you try to throw my 98's is the creak, it better be after you just shot some corrosive ammo.
Gotta like them thar Texas kids!
I'm confused. Whatinthehell would a liberal be doing with a handgun?
I've seen this "joke" a few times before and it always makes me cringe. I don't really think most people fall so neatly into these categories, and I know I don't care to categorize myself into them either.
I don't mean to rain on the parade, I just think that whoever wrote this originally was being pretty nieve about Americans in general.
Unless of course they were talking about politicians...
