    I received this email yesterday.

    "Today I swung my front door wide open and placed my Remington 870 right in the doorway. I gave it 4 shells and left it alone and went about my business. While I was gone, the mail gal delivered my mail, the trash man picked up the trash, a girl walked her dog down the street, and quite a few of my neighbors drove past.

    "Well, after about an hour, I checked on the gun. It was still sitting there, right where I had left it. It hadn't killed anyone, even with the numerous opportunities it had been presented to do so. In fact, it hadn't even loaded itself.

    "Well you can imagine my surprise, with all the media hype about how dangerous guns are and how they kill people. Either the media is wrong, and it is the misuse of guns by criminals, or I have one of the laziest shotguns ever made.

    "I must hurry off now and check on my spoons. I hear they are making people fat."

    You never know when the peer pressure from the handguns will become too great. Or worse, what might happen if an AR comes along and puts bad ideas in the shotgun's head.

    you certainly don't want your guns hanging out with the wrong crowd. Especially the teen ones. They are so gullible.

    Careful, I hear Al-Qaeda is always looking for a few good shotguns.

    I've finally found a group of people whos guns never killed anyone! I thought I was alone in my struggle to figure out why my gun is so.... well.. useless. When I bought it I was under the clear impression that it would kill stuff on its own. Well its been sitting in my closet loaded for years and never shot a damn thing!

    At least I know I have a support system now, thanks!
