Somebody needs to whip these guys into a right-thinkin' militia! Once we defund the police we can go back to Pinkerton an' lynchin'!

I seem to remember a President not that long ago who promised to end this American carnage. How'd that work out?

If only they could outlaw guns in Wyoming...this violence would all end...

MB, the equation is simple...the more legal guns there are, the more illegal guns there are.
