Ok, Saw the Tucson, saw the Wayne. The Joe I am talking about has a dad named Wayne that is a Gun Smith in Tucson. I guess I just thought it was too big a coincidence not to ask.

Thanks.

MELVIN, which bser's are you talking about?

Would you list their names so we can avoid them, and only listen to the good BSer's.

Don't forget to list youself too. When it comes to BS, you're a WHALE OF A TALE, MELVIN.

Most of the ones I visited had basements that would make a small grocery store seem understocked.

You're also right that they have little problem with firearm ownership and even less problem dealing with thieves.
I have many friends that are Mormon. All of my existing family, except for me, and my wife, are Mormon.

Mormons are very gun conscious, and shtf conscious. The unfortunate events at Nauvoo, Illinois, and their trek through Missouri, and across the west, to the Salt Lake area have firmly planted that into their minds.

Come SHFT, I wouldn't want to make a mormon community feel nervous. Utah still uses the firing squad for executions. Just ask Gary Gilmore. Gary Gilmore was a guy that could very easily pass for MELVIN.

Gary Gilmore was a guy who requested to change his sentence from life to death, and after a long court battle, he got it.

Utah straps them into a chair that sits in a large steel bucket style arrangement that catches all of the blood. The firing squad is civilians and is selected from a pool of volunteers.

The origins of it stem from the Mormon religeous doctrine of 'blood atonement'. You draw the blood of the sinner, like with a bullet, and you help atone him of his sins.

So, the perp gets into heaven, society gets rid of the perp, and the firing squad does God's work, saving a sinner. Sort of a win-win situation for all involved.

Sounds better than life in prison and most other forms of execution.

Rostov gave you a good synopsis on Gary Gilmore. This URL will give you a lot of information. Hey, maybe even MELVIN can learn something, Melvin and Gilmore are sympatico!
