    Billy Joel's Garage

    Noticed this while watching an old OCC.
    This is Billy Joel's garage where he keeps his motorcycle collection - Long Island, New York.

    The gang from Orange County Choppers were getting ready to ride the Long Island Streets with Billy Joel.
    Look what's hanging on the wall next to the assorted motorcycle parts.

    I think (not sure) that a shotgun in the home is still OK in NY State. Good thing it wasn't a pistol, and that his garage isn't in one of the five boroughs of NYC.

    I was not attempting to indicate he was doing anything wrong. I was celebrating an entertainer being pro-gun. So many these days have been drinking the socialist coolaide. I knew there was a reason I liked his music!

    2+ for that - They are too few and far between.

    It doesn't necessarily mean that he thinks we Commoners ought to be allowed guns, though.

    Most entertainers are very pro gun. As long as the gun in question is either their's or their bodyguard's

    That would be a Marine Magnum. It could also be a Mossberg Mariner--hard to tell at that distance.

    Absolutely legal in New York. If it was in New York City, he'd have to have a permit for it.

    Pro-Gun?

    Don't know if he's pro gun...or anti. In the past he has called himself a 'socialist' -- perhaps he's pro-gun only for himself and for other 'elites' -- or perhaps he really has seen the light. I hope so, and until then I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

    Like Treo and Chipperman said, there are plenty of entertainers/celebrities that are pro-their guns. Not nearly as many who are pro-your guns.

    Perhaps he needs to hang out with Tom Selleck?
