"Community Gun"

I have heard of a community garden, a community kitchen, and even a community cat.  You know, pretty much anything in a shared area that different people in the community look after.  But I had no idea that this concept also applies to guns, apparently widely enough to be blithely referenced in a news headline.

So basically this is a gun left in some easily accessible area that different people can come and get to use as they see fit.  And it is a widespread enough concept that various states have laws against the practice or buy-back programs targeting them. I think I would be happier, honestly, not knowing that irresponsibility with guns goes so much further than I imagined.

Are your bits and pieces weird looking?

Twenty-Seven percent of British men think their penis might not be normal, compared to a staggering 73% of women who worry their genitals being abnormal. Perhaps is it because, one way or another, we see a lot of depictions of dicks--so we all have a pretty good idea of what they are meant to look like.
