Today, in plain speaking

It’s gonna be hard to top this one:

The only way I can parse that sentence for it to have any logical sense is to say he means that a gun isn’t a weapon… well, unless he means that he, Dan Mullen, has a no-weapons policy personally, but that doesn’t extend to his players.

Ah, hell.  I give up.

    “Sure they broke MY rules, but it’s not like it’s ILLEGAL, so, I mean, let’s just not talk about this…. please?”

    I guess that’s what happens when a UF coach doesn’t have a prepared statement from Huntley Johnson to read.

    He should’ve just said, “I can guarantee I’ll handle it different than Urban would.” Then just slip away into the backdrop curtain.

    Did Urban leave his “rules book” in his office at uf? Sounds like something he would say or do and look where that is getting him.

    He has a no weapons policy unless the costume calls for it. Those crazy ass “having fun” videos don’t make themselves ya know. Sometimes an outfit calls for a Chucky doll and sometimes it calls for an AK-47.

    Giving him the benefit of the doubt, I wonder if he means you can own a gun but not use it in public. Who knows! I don’t get these “no gun policies” anyway. I know times have changed, but I remember when half the parking lot in my highschool would be filled with trucks that had guns in them.

        Can’t touch that one, Chili. It’s true.
        We used to bring our guns to shop class and refurbish them.
        I’m not saying we should do that now, though. Times and society have very much changed.

          My physics teacher in high school shot a 44 magnum into a clay. We measured the displacement of the clay to figure out how much energy was in the bullet. It was nothing for teachers and students to compare guns in the parking lot. And as someone already posted… no school shootings either.

          • No AR-15’s, but half the kids in my school would leave the tree stand and come strait to class in the mornings. Most trucks had 30/30’s, .308’s and .30-06’s in their trucks. All will nlow a big hole in your dumb ass. Guns are not the problem dickhead.

            Chili an AD 15 is not a machine gun. You have to pull the trigger each time you want to fire. You can’t just hold the trigger down and spray bullets. The people who act like an AD 15 is something scary usually don’t know what it is. They think AT stands for “assault rifle”.

              And whether or not they were readily available years ago is irrelevant. Because .308s have been readily available for a very long time and there isn’t a nickle’s worth of difference between that round and an AR15. People who don’t know anything about guns just think AR15s look scary. That and they commit out whatever they here from other people who don’t know anything about guns.

                  And .308 has over twice the muzzle energy of an AR-15. But this is the wrong forum for this discussion. We don’t want to “trigger” the girls.

    It’s a no weapons policy. It’s just not a strict no weapons policy. Just like the no eye gouging policy, no beating women policy, no terroristic threats policy, etc.

    • Yep. Or it’s occasionally strict…for instance, if the trouble-makers are buried on the practice squad. Then, it might be a great time to make an example.
