Gun Porn - Duelling Pistols





It used to be a big thing amongst the punditry to piss and moan about the lack of civility in modern discussion and debate, and invariably, it was always the other guy who was at fault for being uncivil.  We are always perfectly mannered ourselves, of course.

Back in the day if your mouth ran away with you - I would be perfectly within my rights to challenge you to a duel or vice versa if it were me beaking off. It's a sobering thought, having to back up your mouth by possibly killing or being killed. I wonder how often these duels ended up with two guys bleeding out?

Civility comes at a very high price. I wonder how many whiners would be willing to pay it?
