    It took me a good 2 hours to explain the 2nd Amendment and the rationale behind it to my gf last night.

    I started, and kept going backwards and backwards until the "british" situations were covered (i.e. redcoats in your house? Whatcha gonna do about it? That's right, not a darn thing) all the way up to socialism and means a government controls it's populous (via taxes and disarmorment)

    Oh, I think my gf is more libertarian now then me :D :cool: I'm trying to figure out how to clone her for the rest of you single THR'ers..

    The implication is that you succeeded. Did you? :D

    Her quotes:

    "Death to taxes!"
    "I think I'm going to carry 3 guns when I'm in the states."
    "I want to start my own business.."

    Capitalist gun-toter... :D

    The fact that she's cute does NOT hurt one bit..

    I suffer from terminal marriage, so cloning her won't help me, but I know some right-minded single guys who'd go for a clone!

    Is there a line forming, or should I just take a number?

    I want the clone with the most guns in the safe. :D

    I think if the cloning starts, Skunk's got dibs on the first one already... The second one however, is definitely yours!

    But do you really want a cute chinese girl that is very tactical? Wait, don't answer that!

    So are you going to be cloning Runt or Tamara?

    Well, at that point, you'd be wanting to clone Tamara's gun safe... She's got more guns then me, Oleg, Runt, and Skunk.. combined!

    Besides which, Runt's guns aren't in her safe ... she's packing all of them at once!

    What was your record, Runt? A dozen weapons?

    good grief man, are you trying to turn her into another Runt or Tamara? if so, i may have to have the two of you take up the breeding process to make suitable spouses for my neices/nephews since obviousy Oleg and Betty arent getting anywhere with that task.
    all i asked was that they simply reproduce and they make as if babyfarming is a huge inconvenience. whats up with that? :D

    Try expalining the gun safe to your new girl friend from Engalnd. Five years ago I had to. Well, truth be told 5 years later I still am expalining things, but she's my wife now.
