    Just a thought that dawned on me. Today, in the county I live in here in South Carolina, I can not buy weed (ever), cannot buy liquor (Sunday blue laws), but, I can freely go buy a new AK47 with 5 100 round magazines and 1,000 rounds (or how ever much I can afford!!!), and be in and out with all of it within an hour or so.

    Just a statement on the policies of our country. I harmless plant that grows from the ground...no not tobacco, weed...I cannot buy. Since it is a Sunday in this county, I cant buy booze. But I can buy the same weapon our troops are fighting against in Afghanistan, the lethal, ferocious AK47 with as much ammo as my little heart desires.

    Then why don't you round up your fellow countrymen and change the state laws.

    "And"?

    Well, just kinda a good way of putting our laws into perspective.

    Weed should be legal. It doesnt cause violence. Hell, it really only causes violence through its prohibition, because of gangs and shit fighting over the sale of it.

    But an AK47?? Sure! Buy as many as you want!

    In Raleigh, NC, I can openly carry a gun into any city park and sit on a bench watching the children play.

    But...I can't smoke a cigarette there. Too dangerous, you see.

    Hmmmm, might be because if you combine the two or three you have mentioned together, then you might just shoot your own foot off....LOL

    So rejoice in that you have not been able to combine these things together, because I sure don't want to see what will happen to you and/or your roof or your dog, your tires on your car, your TV, your computer, and hopefully you will stay home to....

    Bullshit. Prove it. And, don't just quote statistics or studies. Show me HOW those figures were arrived at.
