    Gun sales surge leaves Texas law agencies short

    AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Police chiefs in Central Texas say they're having trouble arming their officers due to shortages of assault rifles and ammunition. . . . "This is panic buying," said Dayne Pryor, the chief in the Austin suburb of Rollingwood. . . . Rollingwood's police department decided to buy Bushmaster .223 rifles to modernize its weapons after the Newtown, Conn., shootings, Pryor told the newspaper. He said he was worried that his officers, who currently carry M-16s as patrol rifles, won't have the best equipment in the event of a similar school shooting.

    I keep my gun just above my nuts. Does that mean I am paranoid?

    What's worse - being a gun nut or a sissy boy who can't defend himself?

    Are you this effeminate in person?

    Wow, you're pretty violent. You probably shouldn't have access to guns. You sound unstable. And you have homoerotic violent fantasies. All sorts of pathologies there.

    And we're in mixed company. I thought you respected women.

    Moon, seriously. Have you read psychological reports on My Lai? Some soldiers behaved in exactly this sort of way - sex and then killing.

    Please recant.

    Anyone can exaggerate in the heat of the moment. That's understandable. But once you cool down, I hope you reconsider.

    Let him go. And don't alert it. This is some of the most unintentionally funny stuff on the forums in a while. When somebody's on tilt you just sit back and enjoy.

    I don't believe in alerting the authorities. That would be an argument in favor of Big Government. I still believe that people can and will take responsibility for themselves and make the right decisions in the end. If I didn't, I couldn't believe in either democracy or capitalism.
