Where does the term "shotgun" come from. I mean the term in reference to the passenger seat of a car. I heard it on TV tonight and it made me think: "That doesn't make any sense."

you dont know where this term comes from?

"Riding ShotGun"

This is an american term, and is dated back to the old west, where on a wagon, going across country would have a person sat next to the driver with a shotgun to shoot anyone who tried to steal the goods on the wagon. Hence the Term Riding ShotGun for a passenger,

Just watch some old westerns!

I would like an essay on the old west by monday morning first thing please, you will be marked on your use of grammar and research.

Damn you limey bastards are smart. Ok maybe not smart, maybe you just watch a lot of TV. Oh BTW does the report have to be double spaced?
