If guns were outlawed, only Zell Miller - and Kerry - would have guns

Was finishing up a bowl of Eukanuba this morning, when this occurred to me:

It seems that Zell Miller — the dueler, not the U.S. Senator from Georgia — has had a profound effect on John Kerry. Be careful when Kerry calls "shotgun." He means it.

At politics1.com, Corey had this to say:

John Kerry hit a new low when he was given a gun as a gift by a supporter and he said that he appreciated the gift but he could not take it to the debates with him.


Is that some kind of sick joke? Why would John Kerry even bring up the possibility of bringing a gun with him when he meets the President face to face. That sounds like a serious political gaffe and he owes America an explanation and probably an apology to the President. This is a little more serious than Zell Miller challenging Chris Matthews to a duel as Matthews is not the President of the United States.

Can't we conduct our elections without one candidate hinting at gunplay? How long until the mainstream media picks up on this? Will this turn into a distraction for the Kerry campaign?

Another reference - and a picture - is at this link, where Kerry received a rifle in Racine, Wisc., and said: "I thank you for the gift, but I can't take it to the debate with me."

But what if Zell had challenged Chris Matthews to karaoke? Perhaps JK would bring his guitar to the debates, not a firearm.
