In a World Without Guns

Sort of.

STAFFORD TOWNSHIP, N.J. - A 77-year-old man killed his wife and then himself with a commercial-grade nail gun, police said Tuesday.

I can already smell the engine burning in the New Jersey Feel-Good Do-Nothing Nanny State Law Generator from all the way up here. Also, you gotta love the way it's described as a "commercial-grade" nail gun, as if it's not something that should be in the hands of ordinary citizens.

"The homeowner was subsequently charged with unlawful possession of a commercial-grade nail gun without a state-issued contractors license, and held on $25,000 bail."

That would be funny if it weren't teetering so freakin' close to the brink of reality.

I know one thing. They can have my Milwaukee 7110-20 when they pry it from my cold, dead hands. This thing frikkin' rocks!
