A picture of a man on his ATV with his finger over the trigger of an assault rifle. An "armed militia member" shouting he has a "God-given right" to ride his ATV up the canyon. And we wonder why the term "wacko" so often comes to mind with regard to these sorts.

By the way, while we all may have a different view of God, to the best of my knowledge there has never been evidence of Him or Her giving an ATV to anyone. He has, however, been credited with giving most of us two good legs. Try giving those a try.
