Oh yes, so much wrong with that picture. Her finger is on the trigger! You don't put your finger on the trigger unless you are ready to shoot someone dead.

I've never fired a handgun but even I can see that she clearly hasn't either.

That's leaving aside how wrong, and illegal, it is to point a gun at people who are walking by on the sidewalk.

If I ever felt the need to defend my house, I'd be doing it from under a cover and not where I will be overrun in seconds and hit over the head with my own gun after the recoil made me smack the gun into my own nose. And my husband wouldn't be pointing the gun at me half the time, ffs.

There's all that.

And there's also the mayor using intimidation tactics to silence dissent.

Geez!

When I see the photo of those people in front of their big home with guns aimed at people out front all I can hear is the music from 'The Beverly Hillbillies' playing in my head.

Why in the world would they remind you of the Beverly Hillbillies? :scratch: They are big city lawyers without a lick of common sense. Jed Clampett always seemed like a sensible guy to me- the few episodes I've seen.

Yeah, they seem like the diametric opposite of the Beverly Hillbillies to me.

I suppose.. if I had given it much thought.. which I didn't. I haven't read much about the couple. From looking at the photo they reminded me of the Beverly Hillbillies (Granny in particular); in front of a fancy house, barefoot with guns aimed at passersby. Granny would have had her boots on, however.
