What rangers, that is a joke. What was said? What really happened? Why is this a riddle? Someone did something unacceptable to someone else. Who was right? Who was wrong? Was this an "ethnic" issue? Be clear-please!

As soon as the guns are illegal to have , this will be the type of news that will be the headlines. Fight breaks out, possible knife, Shut down beach, call in the militarized police. These 2 teenage punks probably need their butts kicked to understand the meaning of respect. Oh that's right, it's freedom of speech, so say the liberals.

so if we all have guns, legal of course, the nonsense will stop? Seriously, that is naive to the max. But- there will be alot of dead people-most likely the wrong ones!

Pedro, you missed the whole point, it wasn't about being able to carry a gun to the beach.

According to the CDC, there are an average of 87 gun- related deaths in the US every day, and another 183 injured. More guns do not make us safer; just more likely to raise the body count.
