  1. They were fortunate that there was loaded gun handy to keep them safe of course. Things always seem to go so much better when there are plenty of guns and ammo around. I mean gosh think what might have happened if they didn’t have a gun available. Scary thought for regressives scared of everything !

    1. No gun…baseball bat, axe, or as we saw in UK today, knives will actually kill a person dead! Who’da thunk Fester??? Shoot, you don’t even have to have a weapon….you see that Chicago cop body slam that drunk guy into the curb head first on tonights news?? One stomp to the back of his neck while lying unconscious with his head on the curb like that and the guy would be dead. Best add boots to that list of deadly weapons.
      How much you want to bet alcohol was a factor??
