Re: God bless all .... sorry you got shot and killed and I can't do anything to help or stop it

And guess why we can not do any of that? You ammosexuals crying about "but my gun will set off metal detectors" and "this guard saying I can't carry is infringing on my rights!" Boo freakin' hoo. This just proves you don't care about anything but your guns. Seb, dont ge a child....
