Weapon's of war

I have heard that the bagpipes were once a banned instrument because they were considered to be a weapon of war. But a banjo?

You gotta check this out.

I am not so sure this guy was attacking the bull, maybe he was just trying to tune the banjo y’all know how frustrating that can be. I hope it wasn’t his new “Twanger”

Not sure what those articles say, but I read about it on bluegrass today, the guy had a banjo shaped piece of metal. Shame, cuz that’s gonna be really bad PR for banjos

Yeah, every time some dumb person drives in front of a train and gets killed, the news say “train hits car”, not “car drives in front of train”. :thinking:

You mean like… "GUNS kill PEOPLE" :unamused:

Never has been a fun that goes off all by itself.

"PEOPLE kill PEOPLE… with guns"

So instead of “Speed kills”, “acceleration kills”.

Unless you own a Remington. Approximately 7.5 million rifles are subject to recall to fix a nasty habit of firing all by themselves. Remington finally admitted the defect and has settled.

Wow… Never heard of that… clearly.

Well, ALMOST NEVER

Yep, that’s why the common sense gun safety rules are there. If you own one of those rifles, and it shoots someone, it’s on you, cuz you shouldn’t be pointing loaded guns at anyone EVER
