Sadly the original link broke, so I shall post a new link so that our rights to bear arms may never fade away!

That image really hammers home how far this country has fallen. Let's make America furry again!

Let us also remember, in these trouble times, the ongoing struggle of women in the U.S. Congress to maintain their right to bare arms. That certain politicians would so brazenly fight against a right enshrined in the Constitution is outrageous.

While I value the right to bear arms, I think we should also not forget the importance of fighting bear-handed.

What if your bear hands are metal, though?

Sure  8)  The joke was initially inspired by this giant bear-inspired machine in Horizon Zero Dawn:



...and then someone was joking that for beating the boss bear you should get bear claws as a weapon; I was thinking maybe something along the lines of the 'claws' in DQ3:



...except rather than that they'd be the metal claws of the bear; so you'd be fighting literally bear-handed

From 1976 to 1982, Alaska had a license plate like that.



They discontinued the design because people thought the bear looked like a gopher (and possibly because somebody complained that it looked like the bear had an erection).


They introduced a redsign a couple of years ago and actually won some awards for it.

Come on now, it's only $325 to get a PS4 + the game. Compared to going to a pro sporting event with your family or buying Star Trek TNG DVDs c. 2006 that's a complete steal!

Eesh, tell me about it! We bought all of TNG on DVD back then. It took a couple of years. Nothing like shelling out a combined 700 bucks for a sermon about moneyless utopian space Communism.

We don't have that kind of money now. If we did, I'd buy a Switch first anyway.

Almost superfluous due to management/ownership decisions that Chicago Bears = defense + running backs until the end of time or professional American football, whichever comes first, but it qualifies for this thread.

Bear have a right to bare bear arms ~ bear do eat people, dogs, goats, sheep, deer and what ever else they can get at ~ they're  kinda worried about you ~ they heard you have sharp things and fire sticks ```

We ~ there are people who live in the mountains who sell bear carvings ~ tourists like to put them cute cuddly things in their back yards ```

But bear do/will eat you ~if they don't think another one of you will kill them when they try ~ you know that don't you ~ if you're in a park and you are killed, eaten or not ~ and they think the bear had a cub with them ~ it's OK ~ she had a right to protect her cub ```

If you live in the forest ~ you may well have a time when ~ it's you or the bear ~ and like John Wayne said: "Don't pick a fight, but if you find yourself in one, I suggest : You make Damn sure you win!

I love how your stories sound like taken straight out of some 19th-century Caucasus village or something.

Greeting Ralph ~ This bear I mentioned ~ hung around up on the hill ~ the girls couldn't go out to play ~ I had to stay in with a rifle and a sleeping bag in the barn overhead ~ I parted his hair ~ put a grove on the bears forehead with a 308 ~ that didn't stop him from hanging around ~ just up on the flat spot ( had it been light I'would have bagged him then)~ few maybe 50 yard up the mountain ~ I'll see if I can find a picture ~ he was a big boy ~ the sheriffs came out ~ they used 12guage that shot bean bags ~ he just lured them up the mountain keeping out of range ~ until they left than came down again ~ he wouldn't come in ~ he knew I was in the overhead and would drag his claws across the fence wire letting me know he was up there ~ Had to use a trap to bag that one ~ a 4foot culvert with a drop gate ~ if I come up with a picture I'll post him ~ he was pretty good size.



Years before ~ I bought a 7mm Mauser ~ I was working nights as mechanic at Max Factor the cosmetic company ~ lunch hour ~ I turned a 308 barrel on the lathe to exactly fit the 7mm 93 action ~ I had the barrel fitted and checked for head space at Golden State Arms  ~ it was in Culver City, I think ~ that carbine looks just like it did in WWII but chambers the 309 NATO round ```

Like most sensible people would do in an epidemic.  I made sure there is enough toilet paper in the closet.  ;)

A post has been split off and sent here. The intent of this thread is clear; keep politics out of it.
Thanks. --Ainnir
