Good-guy card revoked. (Tap tap) This thing on? Reply oncehewasrubix says: January 23, 2013 at 20:08 Eh… these are interesting from a “hey look at all these normal people” stance, but really bring no value to the site or content. I dont really understand why these pics are even being posted in the first place. Interwebs 15seconds of fame? Just being critical for the sake of being critical. Reply Bob says: January 23, 2013 at 20:15 Maybe you haven’t heard a liberal anti rant about how owning a gun makes a person bad. When I say bad, I really mean it. The anger and disgust at peaceful, responsible people who simply own a gun can be quite palpable. Reply Evan says: January 23, 2013 at 20:33 Its to fight the “all gun owners are rednecks, or mass murderers” meme. The pics are also posted on Facebook. Reply Thomas Paine says: January 23, 2013 at 20:35 because it’s not just flannels, beer bellies, and kkk hoods anymore. Reply BlinkyPete says: January 24, 2013 at 08:48 Hold on, let me go get my camera, compose a list of five or six things that sums me up, snap a photo, send it to the gang here so some uber-critical keyboard whiner can complain I’m positioning my crotch in such a way that indicates I’m a red commie traitor. Seriously… I’m going to get right on that. Reply AlphaGeek says: January 23, 2013 at 20:08 I find his claim of ferret ownership… suspicious. Reply g says: January 23, 2013 at 22:59 It be an “ASSAULT FERRET”. Reply AlphaGeek says: January 24, 2013 at 01:47 Arrrrgh! It’s gone up me pants! Reply BlinkyPete says: January 24, 2013 at 08:51 The lady that stole away my innocence in high school had a ferret at a time when they were strictly illegal in Massachusetts. She had friends who had had their confiscated and destroyed. Funrelated fact of the day. Reply Lance says: January 23, 2013 at 20:09 Have a Hedgehog too? Reply Mike in CA says: January 23, 2013 at 20:15 I miss my ferret, very fun pet. Reply Biofire says: January 23, 2013 at 20:19 I bet the ferret carries a .9mm. Reply Mamba says: January 24, 2013 at 09:33 “.9mm”….winning. Reply 40&2000 says: January 23, 2013 at 20:26 Hey, Nice Marmot! Reply John Boch says: January 23, 2013 at 20:34 Nipsey (aka Nippers, or just “Nips”) says thanks for making him famous! Reply ZM 1306 says: January 23, 2013 at 20:42 “I am a ferret owner” To bad he means the animal and not a Ferret Scout Car, preferably a Mark II. If he also has a Ferret Scout Car then I hope that the “Gun Owner” includes a Browning 1919 for the turret! http://www.milsurps.com/images/imported/2009/12/fer2-1.jpg Reply Randy Drescher says: January 23, 2013 at 22:04 Hi John, nice ferret. Thats soon to be an assault ferret, I hope you trained it well, Randy Reply Silver says: January 23, 2013 at 22:20 That ferret’s got one badass look on its face. Even he’s saying “Molon Labe” to all the antis out there. Reply Aharon says: January 23, 2013 at 22:54 Thanks for being with us John. Your cute ferret has this look of quiet fierce determination as if to say don’t even think of trying to take his guns away. I like your black powder guns. Very classy! Reply g says: January 23, 2013 at 23:00 Gun owner + pet owner? Good stuff. Thanks for speaking out, John! Reply Hums says: January 23, 2013 at 23:16 Ferrets something else illegal in NYC. Reply BlinkyPete says: January 24, 2013 at 09:24 Pretty soon they’re just going to have to compile a list of things that are still legal. It would be shorter. Reply Matt says: January 23, 2013 at 23:41 Those “firearms” don’t look properly stored. They could “go off” and hurt that poor child (ferret). Reply Greg Camp says: January 24, 2013 at 11:52 One of the smartest individuals I’ve ever known was a ferret I had a while ago–in an I.Q. distribution of herself and America’s politicians, she’d have been in the far right tail, wondering how she got lumped in with all those dolts on the other end.
