Don’t give them any ideas. I can hear it now. “Let’s let all the innocents out of prison and use them as repositories for all the guns we’ll confiscate to make this a safer country.” Sheesh. Reply Irony, 2yellowdogs. Irony. It’s like “goldy” or “bronzy” but more prone to rust. Reply Thanks, yes, I got the irony. Though I prefer silvery.

No handguns were recovered during searches! Reply LEAVE A REPLY Cancel reply Please enter your comment! Please enter your name here You have entered an incorrect email address!
