Wow, that just blows me away.

Kenneth, this is an example of where I can see someone 'open carrying' a gun changing the outcome. Of course, I see the person with the gun escalating the issue. If they came to blows (no pun intended) over leaves, it's just too easy to see them take it to the next level (with either one or both of them being armed). Too much like the old west, if you ask me.

This 'blows' my mind...probably just a couple of old 'wind' bags that won't 'leaf' well enough alone.
