A more appropriate sign would probably be "NO (More) Fur Coats Allowed at the Range"!

Awesome.

No Mr. President, and for the last time......

  • There is no line
  • Your Definition of unloading your weapon is not the same as ours.
  • And No we will not accommodate your wishes

And NO, I do not want to see your pet anaconda, please stop rubbing me and stand back..... We are not that type of club.
