Argument about WHAT?? jeez... what could be so BAD to have to shoot another human being about? Nevermind your own DAD! Crazy...


well Arizona allow to everyone to carry a gun


Guarantee you the people involved did not have legal right to have arms. That area is almost entirely non-citizens & all drunks. Alcohol plus guns equals potential shooting. Most of hte people shot in cases like these are not legally allowed handguns. Criminals commit crimes.


You the man, Preacher!!
