Had one. The gateway whatever I guess at 10 years old.

Marlene's guns all have interesting stories. They look it, and I've heard some of them.

My guns have stories, but they're more like "I went from the Remington factory to the display rack at Big 5, and some big dumb bozo named Elmo plunked down $250 for me. The end."

My Luger has a story, as does my Woodsman, and old, broken H&R break-top revolver. Other than that, I am making up lies about each of them...

That's an old picture of guns seized from the Black Panther Party. They do look like things I would own though.

Is that gun culture appropriation? ;)

Also, I'm definitely a centrist. I believe that the best solutions to our problems lie in the messy middle between abolishing government, and using government to ensure equitable distribution of wealth from the commonly held means of production. I think there are valuable things both sides can agree on like strangling the last king with the guts of the last priest. We should focus on our commonalities more than our differences. In the end, does it really matter whether the rich die by guillotine or by firing squad? Maybe the right answer is some of each? Maybe the decision between asphyxiation, poison, bullet, or beheading for the capitalist class should be a local decision; not all issues need to be made at the national level.

Actually, if anything, it's misappropriation...:-)

Accumulating power by skimming the value of others’ labor. Take anywhere I say the nebulous “rich” to mean the clearly defined capitalist class.

Am I not allowed a colloquialism?
