    I almost retorted "Socialist Pig" but she was practically as old as my mother so I felt compelled to retort with a sigh and "are you kidding me?" Bsides, I wouldn't want to insult a swine or any other porcine friend... ever.

    Abusive comments when taking a shot

    Maybe this is why Clive and the UK folks get nervous with us gun weilding Republicans! LOL!
    Some of us Democrats own and shoot and carry guns too.

    Lest our friends in other countries misunderstand, I know of nowhere in the US where it's legal to just shoot someone who comes to your door. If they enter forcibly or against your instructions otherwise, yes, but not just because they're saying nasty things (and calling me a Republican I consider an insult) when you talk to them freely. You're well within your rights to tell them to get lost and slam the door in their face, and if they don't leave your property you can call the police to have them removed and charged with trespassing. If they don't get the hint and break in, THEN you can shoot them (in this and many states.)

    ... where I'm from, Roger, I think there is also a need for life-threatening danger or self-defense against a deadly weapon. I doubt her political convictions amounted to either.

    Is that not the entire US bible belt?

    Yeah, best to be specific.
    I do use a digital device in my photographic pursuits when necessary.
    When someone rags on me for using film, I use a middle digit, upraised.
