Those darn liberals shooting their guns.


Yeah, and they need to have their guns controlled, right?


Why do you think that?


It's illegal to discharge a firearm within the city limits, and doing so would constitute an irresponsible use of one. Isn't irresponsible use of a weapon all it takes to justify more gun control laws?


If you want more gun control laws, go for it. But you haven’t persuaded me that it’s a good idea.

Not to worry people, 12 years ago Sherf Trumpkins promised to “go after the gangs”. I’m certain he’ll get to that one of these days


Those are still just the voices in your head, plumbum. BTW, this is the jurisdiction of the FPD, not the FCSO, but you already know that. Just more of your lame personal vendetta against the Sheriff. So, what did he bust tou for? Any employment issues?


[thumbup][thumbup] gabrielshorn2013. [smile] Tired of her personal vendatta against Sheriff Jenkins. It's irrational.


Plumbum is just still desperate for attention, that's all. I still laugh at how she would state that some comment of mine has violated some rule, so she "reported" it, yet this repetitive comment of hers about the sheriff violates the "Say it once. No repetitive posts, please." rule. At one time, long ago, she might have had valid points, but now she's since proved that she simply can't be taken seriously. As I said, she's just desperate for attention. She could save herself a lot of typing, though, if she just changed her avatar to read "I'm a total jerk."
