But guns don't shoot people... Guns make everybody safer, right?

Now just multiply this guy by the millions more that the NRA wants to put guns in their hands....

Shame that it wasn't at the place that (ILLEGALLY) let me go 18 months ago. Funny thing is: EVERYBODY (management or not) knew who needed to get shot.

If the gun went off, he was doing a little bit more than just showing it to her

No "jokes" should be tolerated about ANY shooting - accidental or intentional ! I don't wish this on you in any way, shape, or form but you'll change your "humor" if / when YOU or a FRIEND, or a LOVED ONE is ever victimized by someone with a loaded weapon. I had an ex-girlfirend who was shot and killed by the 16 yr. old kid next door to her. Trust me - it changed my perception on "gun control" - forever ! Bottom line, Jim - no "jokes" !

Convenience store owner...gotta be a foreign national. If it had been an AK-47 he would have known how to use that. Can we all agree to stop allowing foreign nationals to posess guns here in the US?

I bet he is a life time neighbor of yours! Anyone who belongs to the NRA knows better than ACCIDENTLY shooting someone, now the employee is the owner and the owner is the emplyee.
