NRA peddles fear and paranoia. The weak minded are easy targets.

"You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass."

http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Isoroku_Yamamoto

It has been declared this attribution is "unsubstantiated and almost certainly bogus, even though it has been repeated thousands of times in various Internet postings. There is no record of the commander in chief of Japanís wartime fleet ever saying it.", according to Brooks Jackson in "Misquoting Yamamoto" at Factcheck.org (11 May 2009)


"Top Dog of the Jap Navy. I don't know, Monolith. Maybe your immagination is more accurate than historical documentation."


HAHAHAHAHAHAHA

My WASR-4 killed nobody today.

Must be defective.

Micheal, take up your employer's offer to pay for some education. A community college will do you some good.

Thanks Chaz. Glad I didn't have to Google it though. Glad my elementary school education is still retained in my child like zipper head.

Home schooled... right?

"Donald M. Goldstein, sometimes called "the dean of Pearl Harbor historians said, I have never seen it in writing. It has been attributed to the Prange files [the files of the late Gordon W. Prange, chief historian on the staff of Gen. Douglas MacArthur]"

I dunno, Monolith ( jghedge )

I have multiple non-Wiki sources, all saying that quote was indeed uttered. You want to try to prove a negative?

Yamamoto's advice was certainly heeded.

That's your logic?

His fear was 'waking the sleeping giant' who could mobilize a huge industry to make planes, tanks, ships. Nothing to do with the pea shooters a citizen might have.

Hahahaha

That's about as long as you'd last as a grip

Even if you kept your mouth shut.

Yeah, I'm vastly overqualified for furniture moving.

And,

I can't help but feeling a bit sorry for anyone stuck in a job where "Keeping your mouth shut" is a prerequisite unless it involves national security.

Of course you have "sources".

Just no proof.

A commentator on NPR observed today that negotiations with the NRA tend not to be "feel good exercises."

It is such a treat to run into people who are not the functional equivalent of a zip lock bag full of testosterone. And, and, and with normal neurological capabilities.

Oh, and with regards to my post asking if guns have not become a fetish. Somewhere above someone posted a youtube showing four bikini clad women firing and explaining the features of four leading assault weapons.

I think I have the answer to my question.

Oh, and some other stuff of interest.

And then there is the A10. Fires 8000 rounds a minute of depleted uranium. In full firing the plane almost comes to a stop in the air.

You guys can handle this with tech 9. No problem.

Haven't read this whole thread, but no gun debate is complete without BOGUS quotes from the Founding Fathers:

"The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."
- Thomas Jefferson

http://www.monticello.org/site/jefferson/strongest-reason-people-to-retain-right-to-keep-and-bear-arms-quotation

Who cares if he didn't say it, send it to all yer NRA buds!

Hell, a real American would make it his email signature!

In the spirit of posting links for those who do not realize a world exists outside of www.*

I've never heard of this young guy, Ben Shapiro before but he seems damn intelligent and very articulate under heavy MSM troll fire. A rare combination this country needs.

hahahaa... yeah, "Bullies"

hahaaa... "rational discussion"


I agree, it is nice to see a gun nut NOT YELLING. Still an idiot who ignores reality.

Assault rifles used in recent mass shooting: 1, 2, 3, 4...

but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but...but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but... but...



It would be nice is Shapiro explained how he would like to establish who is responsible and who isn't responsible.


Why not ban handguns... well, because they have not been used to kill dozens of people in minutes.


Why criticize the NRA... well, because they want to put armed guards in schools.


Shapiro: left-right-left-right...
Piers: wait, it isn't left-right... Raygun
Shapiro: so?
Shapiro: "... breakdown of L-R is irresponsible"

duh...

The fact is this.... no matter what happened in history, US citizens today DON'T STAND A FUKING CHANCE AGAINST THE WORLD'S MOST POWERFUL MILITARY... assault style rifles or not.

From that interview I have to conclude Shapiro is a douche bag.
