    1. I wonder in which state the gunner or gunners bought the gun or guns, as well as in which state or states where she, he or they were born and where her, his or their ancestors once lived. These are all important questions, too.

      I put duck and beaver decals on either side of my Oregon license plates and a Will Not Comply sticker in my back window for added layers of protection. Don’t want any locals thinking I am from out of, or the wrong part of, the state.

      State borders need respect these days, so be careful near those invisible lines, folks.
