Top 10 Reasons Men Prefer Guns

OK, that last post was a little harsh on men. So in the spirit of equality of the sexes, fair play and the fact the the NRA is funnier than Neil Young, here's a Top 10 list that was sent to me by a gun-totin' Southerner (along with a note that if I didn't run it for "equal time" that I'd meet some of his friends named Smith and Wesson, whoever they are.)

So here are the Top 10 reasons men prefer guns to women:

#10 - You can trade an old .44 for a new .22.

#9-You can keep one gun at home and have another for when you're on the road.

#8- If you admire a friend's gun and tell him so, he will probably let you try it out a few times.

#7- Your primary gun doesn't mind if you keep another gun for a backup.

#6- Your gun will stay with you even if you run out of ammo.

#5- A gun doesn't take up a lot of closet space.

#4- Guns function normally every day of the month.

#3- A gun doesn't ask, "Do these new grips make me look fat?"

#2- A gun doesn't mind if you go to sleep after you use it.

And the number one reason a gun is favored over a woman....

#1- You can buy a silencer for a gun.

I don't really have any use for the NRA but that is funny. How about they don't interrupt the football game or run up the charge accounts.

Did anyone say anything about the NRA? you are the reason we have battered women.

Anon, the reason we have battered women is cowardly men who aren't smart or respectful enough to do anything else. It ain't because we joke about the differences between men and women.

Equal opportunity potshots, I see. One question - why no editorial 2-shekels worth on this one? Chick-en! *chuckle*

And, Anon, how could you possibly think that Ron and some gentle poking of fun at the sexes (note that he poked fun at men first) had ANYTHING to do with women being battered?
