    Pretty soon, my conversation with her would be over.

    Something needs to be done in “Killadelphia.” :o(

    THey should legalize gun ownership and tax the crap out of it. Gun crime would vanish overnight.

    “More importantly, just between you and I, this is very unique.”(Just putting all my favorites into one sentence.)

    @rpmurray

    How? Gun crime is not normally done by those that legally own them. And it is legal for American’s to own guns, the 2nd Amendment guarantees this.

    Just be glad this American History teacher doesn’t decide to explain to you the ramifications of the (nearly repealed) 2nd Amendment

    Yeah, those are pretty bad. Yesterday I was walking along and suddenly wanted to rant about my favorite. Was wanting an opportunity. When people say “asterick” I wanna yell “NOOOO!” Thanks, Ray C.

    I don’t think of ‘exact’ and ‘same’ as identical. I could have eggs cooked the same way for breakfast everyday, but it would never be ‘exact.’ It’s not like I can use the same eggs. I mean, ewww.

    @msowards “redundancy” happens when the idea is expressed the same way unnecessarily. One of the words can be omitted without altering the meaning of the sentence. Avoiding redundancy in writing results in cleaner expression.

    The word that raises my hackles is irregardless. Absolutely hate it since there’s really no such word.

    Throw astericks at it! Or yell at it like Alice in today’s Cul de Sac.

    rpmurray: If you are in a well-regulated militia, ownership is legal. Unfortunately, the militia concept took a major hit in the need for more canon fodder in the Civil War and WW-I, and was severely dead by WW-II, being replaced first by conscription and now by mercenaries and “volunteers” who can’t get civilian jobs because of multinational corporate rule. Yeah, I know there are exceptions, but they are a minority – often in more ways than one.

    I use the term “exactly the same”. I think that is British English and not redundant.

    I truly understand ramifications (to know me is to understand). That was not my point, how would raising taxes on gun ownership decrease the overall use of them? That’s like saying that legalizing marijuana and taxing it would stop drug use. The reference to the 2nd Amendment was in response to the “make it legal” comment, when in fact it already legal.
