Whoever wrote that law ought to be expelled from the boundaries of the state of California for up to life and/or put to death by bullets to the head or by any other convenient method.
Yes, we are going to fight back. But not here, not now, not in the Colonies. Not even in this star system. Let the word go forth to every man, woman and child who survived this holocaust. Tell them to set sail at once in every assorted vehicle that will carry them.

Now now, let's not  make the mistake of this looney tune and turn extreme ourselves. One bullet to the head should be enough for just about anyone.

altitude sickness adversely affects everyone not native to Nepal who doesn't already live on top of the Rockies or the Alps.

Yes, it's gotten to the point where everyone needs to have a camera at all times. I know and you know, of course, that the real solution is for everyone to stop being a douche, but the odds of that are just... it's not gonna happen.

Incidentally I was pulled over twice last week (first two times ever). I promptly informed both officers that I was licensed to CCDW and that I had a firearm in the car. One told me that if I attempted to leave the vehicle he would shoot me without question, the other one simply laughed and said as long as I left it where it was we'd have smooth sailing. There are real dickheads in every profession so... I gotta say though, it felt really uncomfortable having the first one threaten to shoot me.

What were you pulled over for anyway? Can't have been that serious could it? And dashcams are the only way to drive around these days...

Btw... What was your hidden companion anyway? It wasn't a full frame was it? :P

The real problem is that we see a world and the police see a very different one.
You stop a car to give its driver a friendly warning that his tail light is broken but before you could say a word four bullets pierce your body.


Fuuuuck... I'm getting to serious. Emergency silliness released!

I should put something pithy here, but I don't have the energy.

No 'twas just my little friend the S&W bodyguard .380, and I was pulled over for speeding. I was doing 64 in a 55.

It's two sides to the coin there, sometimes police want you to "bow down and respect there authoritah" and sometimes they are perfectly nice human beings who get treated like crap for no reason.
