    Well, at least he didn’t use one of the “EVIL GUNS” to do his “business” LOL!
    What’s next a “chainsaw ban”?

    1. Did he have a holster and a cc permit for that weapon. we should outlaw chainsaws, forks, bricks and anything someone might use as a weapon

    He has three hots and a cot now (jail) for Christmas, thanks to his lawless behavior. Probably what he was going for in the first place. Smh

    Let’s round up all the chain saws in Portland. These weapons of mass destruction have murdered millions of defenceless trees.I’m sure Papa Joe will put this on his to do list.

    You got that right!

  9. Those of us here in Alabama have a definitive solution for adjusting his or her (Alice?), ongoing mental illness. Its much faster and far less expensive than mental wards and psych doctors charges at taxpayers expense. Come at me with your running chainsaw while I’m dipping my fries, and I’ll relieve you of your duties with my 9mm semi automatic. Works every time.

    I wish you wouldn’t have published that. Our Illinois “Pig” Governor seen it now he’s giving the entire state 5 days to turn in our saws (now called weapons of mass destruction in IL) or he is sending the State police to confiscate them. (or at least the ones that don’t own saws which is very few) I’m loading up my car now and moving south. These phlockin Demorats are making life unbearable!
