Hillrat, I tried that. I used to support my claims with statistics, spend time checking the sources, etc. Then I realized most of the people involved in these discussions are fuking idiots... so...

You want REAL economic collapse? Let them keep their cars, take away the fuel. Better yet, throw in a major geologic/meteorologic event. We've seen it happen, here, recently, in this country. Criminals took advantage, decent citizens became victims. Nobody will ever really know how many crimes were committed, nor how many were thwarted by justified use of firearms.

You've got points to make, fine. But for you to argue that someone is an idiot because they don't embrace stricter gun control? Really? That's your definition? Kinda narrow.

Arm all teachers: Bad, bad idea.
Allow those who are capable and sane to carry? Maybe. I haven't seen a rise in crime or accidents for that matter in the rest of the general public sector from allowing concealed carry in general. When and where and who would probably need close scrutiny.

You really think I don't recognize how interwoven vehicles are in our society? Come on... I'm a f*#kin mechanic. I have a degree in that sh#t. Your idea that there's simply no comparison between cars and guns is not true. There are valid points to be made. It's like when I compared my ex to a stripper once and she went batxhit crazy because she saw no similarity between them. I guess ymmv.


I'm wrong every day. Life is constantly changing and evolving, along with what I know, what I think I know, and what life's going to teach me tomorrow. My attitudes on guns have changed over time, and indeed the GF and I have differing opinions which we're willing to at least discuss rationally. We don't call each other fukin idiots.

But like I said, whatever works for ya.

Edit: to be less of a prick

All right, all right. I'm gettin all worked up over this stupid thread again. Look, I don't really want to start calling people names and all that b.s.

So if I offend, I'll work on that.

Anyway, the sun's out and there are better things to do.

You are right that people base their opinions as much on emotion as statistics, which are often contradictory.

You didn't have time to look back a page or two before assuming I was on the extreme opposite side of the argument... assuming that I opposed gun ownership and thought everyone who owned one was a fuking idiot...

...but you had time to do a screen capture from another thread and upload it?




So, you want to assume you know what my opinion is without reading my opinions?

"Is that really an effective method of having your opinion considered, ya think?"

I'm pretty sure I haven't called you a fuking idiot yet hillrat, because I read what you write and consider most of it fairly intelligent. Ron, Ron, and Chaz on the other hand, they can be fuking idiots and I have no hesitation pointing out when they are.

mechrist, you are coming across like Bluering. Is that what you really want? LOL. I understand your frustration, but you catch more flies with sugar than vinegar, and the flies that don't like sugar are too fuking stupid to deal with anyway.

Thanks for the heads up on the tone Fet. Blurring is the king of fuking idiots. Coming off like that douche nozzle is the last thing I want. I guess that is what happens when I allot 5% of my brain to posting on ST while working.

3109 posts. Im just not that bored. Sorry i didnt catch your opinion as being moderate. Guess thats life in the forum. Keep at it with the statistics and the research.Dont be surprised when people refute the numbers. Just try to remember there are other legitimate uses for guns besides gangbangin, redneckin, and murder.

mechrist: not Bluering

Yeah, but you have no answer to my agruements. If you did, you'd respond with something more intilligent than your tiresome "fuking idiots" schoolyard rhetoric.

Maybe you didn't know, but you don't need a license, registration, or insurance to legally own and drive a car on private property.


Now there's a argument that demands an answer!

On the TV channels around here,, every day and night, the NHP runs ads warning of folks not to be distracted while driving, and cell phone usage/texting..EVERY NIGHT and day these ads are run, and they DONT run any ads of avoiding guns, or any of the like. So one can only assume the NHP is far more concerned over teeny boppers texting than with any guns issues.

Heart disease kills more than guns and cars.

The NHP doesn't run ads against heart disease either, so they must think heart disease is not a problem in this country, by yer logic.

You'll find sheriffs department run gun safety classes, while highway patrols push car safety.

Now we're talking logic.

The small minds of the masses are driven by emotion. And they always will be. There's a reason politicians exploit tragedies and have to do so quickly before the masses forget, which they will. There is no time for determining root causes of real problems in the political arena. That's not what politics or legislation is about anyway.

As I shuffled shoeless and waterless through the TSA molesters twice this week it really struck me what a sad pathetic country we have allowed ourselves to become. It's not often I get to have my balls groped by federal agents but yet now it's become the new normal. The masses have truly chosen false safety over liberty. It's easier that way. The trajectory of all empires becomes parabolic when approaching the ground. Weeeeeeeee!

3000+ posts. Holy crap. Impressive I guess.

Sorry for the diversion.
