    It reads like an Onion satire piece:

    "A group of online organizers and a gun company are planning to build a fortified city in Idaho called The Citadel, where every resident from age 13 and up would be armed with guns."

    Age 13??? Oh, that oughta make them all safe inside there. icon_rolleyes.gif

    I love the comments that follow. Get all the wackos behind walls, so they can't threaten the rest of us. I think we call those PRISONS. Only these guys will do it for us - great!

    Disagree mostly. I know a big bunch of gun guys and gals and they are mostly great folks. I am a little concerned about the age 13 and up, but that's about the age I learned to shoot (guns that is).

    This is mostly pie in the sky stuff and I doubt it will ever be built, but interesting idea.

    As if teenagers don't have enough problems to deal with:

    http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/01/20/albuquerque-shooting-2013-new-mexico-teenager_n_2516424.htmlALBUQUERQUE, N.M. — A teenage boy fatally shot two adults and three children at a home near Albuquerque, authorities said Sunday.

    The boy, who police believe to be about 15 years old, was arrested and booked on murder and other charges in connection with the shootings Saturday night at the home in an unincorporated area 10 miles southwest of downtown Albuquerque, Bernalillo County sheriff's spokesman Aaron Williamson said.

    The victims' identities haven't been released, and the boy's motive and connection to the five victims weren't immediately known. Williamson said investigators were trying to determine if the victims were related.

    "We are trying to identify the victims," Williamson said.

    Each victim suffered more than one gunshot wound.

    Investigators also were seeking to determine who owned several guns that were found at the home, one of which was a semi-automatic military-style rifle.

    If modern history is any indication, this sounds like another Waco in the making.

    And I have friends who fired their first shot when they were 7. They didn't grow up to be Adam Lanzas, James Holmeses, or Jared Laughners.

    Yah know, I spent over 20 years of my 25-year military career with a pistol on my hip a good part of the time (not when I taught college ROTC, needless to say). I was a Military Police Officer, and I initially carried an M-1911 .45 caliber large-frame automatic, and later a .38 caliber snub-nose revolver.

    I was also a Range Control Officer at one time, running firing ranges. I know more about small-bore weapons than most guys here will ever know. I qualified at the highest Expert rating on every damn military personal weapon there is. I was also a top competitor at skeet, and a hunter who could down a bird with a shotgun almost every time.

    And today there's not a single firearm in our home. Why should I have one? I have no fantasies about guns, no need to make my dick feel bigger by owning a big-barrel gun. I'm not hunting now in Florida. Nor do I have crazy fears about "liberals" climbing up to my balcony to attack me, or to take my rights away.

    I do have a bow, because I like the sport of archery, and the skill it involves. But It's not to confront some intruder. If a guy breaks in here I'll break his arm. And if he's got a gun I know how to disarm him.

    Is that guaranteed? No, maybe he'll shoot me first. But it's just as likely we'll accidentally shoot each other with a gun in the house if we have one, or a bad guy will get his hands on it and shoot us first. It's bad insurance I neither need nor want. icon_razz.gif
