Its funny, you buy a book on camping and the authors ideas of primitive is that the R.V. parking doesn't have pull through
Ain't that the truth.
I talked to the neighbor downstairs, yeah the blond and her idea and most other women I'm finding is that primitive camping means the Motel 8 instead of the Hilton.
My idea is going in the middle of nowhere by car then walking a mile or so back into the woods until you find 2 good trees and hang your hammock. You pack everything you need in and pack everything back out when you're done.
No, this isn't an attempt to start a debate on gun control. A fan of The Walking Dead shot[^] his girlfriend for saying it was unrealistic. Honestly, if he didn't have a gun, he'd just have looked for some other weapon. Stupid is as stupid does - unfortunately, in this case, stupid watches TV.

Reading the story, this was not momentary rage. This was an argument that brewed over several hours, first in person, then in text messages, and so on. This guy got so worked up over the disagreement that he sat with a gun and waited for her to check on him.
Less stupid, more anger management issues with this one. If he hadn't had a gun, he would have struck her with something else.
But if he'd had to look for another weapon he'd have forgotten what he wanted it for by the time he found it.
When Jerry Sadowitz got punched on stage at the Just For Laughs festival in Montreal (before he outed Jimmy Savile and was no longer allowed on TV) I remember the American comedians mocking the Canadians for their lack of guns and having to walk all the way to the stage just to punch someone. Said more people would get punched, but by the time the angry person had made their way to the stage they'd forgotten what they were angry about or calmed down. In the US all you'd have to do was stand up, shoot, sit down and wait for the next guy.
Every man can tell how many goats or sheep he possesses, but not how many friends.
Is it possible to beat someone to death with a bottle of Prozac? That was probably the nearest thing to this idiot when he committed the crime. If not the Prozac he probably had a bottle of some kind of liquor that he was washing the pills down with and that would have done it.
Honestly, if he didn't have a gun, he'd just have looked for some other weapon.
I've always hated that argument. In this situation it may be true, but when I heard it being made about the Aurora shootings, for example, I just thought, if he didn't have guns, would he have killed those twelve people by throwing f***ing potatoes at them?
