“The American people will never knowingly adopt Socialism. But under the name of ‘liberalism’ they will adopt every fragment of the Socialist program, until one day America will be a Socialist nation, without knowing how it happened.”

Robbery attempt......FAIL!!!

Sometimes you just can't write jokes that are funnier than the story itself.....

Waukegan police said a clerk at a guns-and-ammunition store appears to have shot a man who was trying to rob the establishment this afternoon.

There they found a man who had been shot twice in the chest and once in the leg, and a shop clerk who had a gun trained on him, the statement said.

How stupid do you have to be to rob a gun store?

Why should that be more stupid than robbing anything else - guns don't kill people?

No, but people who sell guns are much more likely to have one handy with which to defend themselves than your garden-variety convenience-store clerk, and would be more competent using it than the average person too.

Nice try there Ken. You're right, guns don't kill people but, people with guns(such as gun store owners) certainly go.

Guns don't kill people. I think we can all agree it's those bullets that kill people.

And yes, robbing a gun shop is not much smarter than robbing the police station.
