Carne Diem = Flesh Day
"So I walk into Starbucks the other day with a 9mm Glock handgun in a holster, sawed-off shotgun in my right hand, old Soviet Union AK-47 in my left hand, 16,000 rounds of ammunition on belts slung over my shoulders and a couple of hand grenades around my neck."
The sawed off shotgun will likely land you in federal prison for 15 years for illegal making and possession of an NFA Title II firearm. The old Soviet Union AK-47 will also likely land you in the federal pokey for another 10 years as an NFA Title II firearm unless you went through a lengthy process to be approved. The hand grenades also would likely land you a lengthy stay in federal prison for unlawful possession of destructive devices if real and even if fake are a violation of Colorado state law. I believe you are now looking at approximately 30 years behind bars, possibly more. The 16,000 rounds (sic) of ammunition for the AK would weigh about 580 pounds -- so good luck with that.
"You know, just in case one of them crazy Second 'Mendment NRA gun nuts takes some time off from recalling state senators and bursts in while I'm gulping my latte."
Are you really that scared of people peacefully exercising their rights and powers to participate in government and for redress of grievances?
Dear Mr Tosches,
Honestly, all your lengthy diatribe accomplished was to paint a very poor picture of yourself and of those who are apoplectic when they see a firearm in public or hear the letters N R A, and unless that was you goal, it was not funny, insightful, or informative.
Instead of engaging in grade school belittling and bigoted stereotyping, you would do well to learn a little more about the group of people you seem to enjoy insulting. If you did, you would find that a great many of us are well spoken, educated, come from good families, and have good paying white collar jobs. We don't stereotype you as a granola eating, Subaru driving, Birkenstock wearing, tree hugger as we know that trying to put people into boxes despicable and almost always incorrect -- some of us like granola and drive Subarus too. The fact that we own firearms and even legally carry them does not mean we live in trailer parks, wear greasy tee-shirts with the arms ripped off, have a couch in our front yard, kick dogs, beat women, need dental work, dropped out of high school, live on welfare, or any of the dozens of others of ignorant stereotypes you seem so fascinated with.
