no jghedge, it shows that a small segment of criminals which does not nearly represent the majority of americans can cause some to place the blame on all guns and owners

This isn't a debate. This is just a bunch of entitled grumpy old white men kicking and screaming to their graves.

Due to demographic shifts in our electorate, laws are going to change. Each of you is arguing from a minority viewpoint, one which loses credibility by the day. For this to be a real debate, 51% of the participants should be female. You ugly old men scared all the women away.

The fact that you have the hubris to trash a climbing forum with this nonsense - against the explicit wishes of your host, even - is further testament to your irrelevance and irresponsibility.

The entire thread is a troll, the guy who posted it quit the board long ago. On the bright side, it's probably healthy for you to blow off some steam. It keeps you out of trouble and ensures that you won't accomplish anything. The future is for the living.

No, it's the way that numbers are interpreted. One could see that in the lead in to communist china when 45-60 million were killed, and might infer from the numbers that chinese as a whole, must be ultra violent and cruel to their neighbors. That would have been a wrong inference, as the crime and murders of their own people were committed by relatively few, that were the government. And don't read anything into that as me being an anarchist or anything like that, it's just an example that numbers need to be analyzed beyond the raw number

Cuomo Says His NY Mag Law Should Be Repealed
March 21, 2013

“There is no such thing as a seven-bullet magazine. That doesn’t exist. So you really have no practical option,” New York Governor Andrew Cuomo admitted yesterday at a news conference, explaining why his tough ban on ammunition magazines over seven rounds should be repealed.

The bill must be repealed if New Yorkers ever want to purchase an ammunition magazine for their firearm.



SHHHH! Don't tell him.

That's an Enfield. Well trained Brits could lay down an impressive rate of fire with those old bolt guns.

So Ron, you're in Lyon County?

I always wanted to find and put up a route in Inyo County that had good face climbing, and then name it Inyo Face.

 Dear Mr. C

 Thank you for contacting me to express your views regarding gun control. I appreciate hearing from you. 

As a gun owner, I welcomed the Supreme Court's decision in District of Columbia v. Heller, which made clear that every law abiding citizen has an individual constitutional right to keep and bear arms. 

We must work to protect this right by enforcing laws that keep guns away from terrorists and criminals.  However, the rights of responsible gun owners should not be compromised by individuals who use firearms to commit crimes.

Please be assured that I have noted your views regarding this issue, and that I will continue to use my leadership position in the Senate to defend the Second Amendment and to protect the interests of Nevada's gun owners. 

Again, thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts with me. For more information about my work for Nevada, my role in the United States Senate Leadership, or to subscribe to regular e-mail updates on the issues that interest you, please visit my Web site at http://reid.senate.gov. I look forward to hearing from you in the near future. My best wishes to you. 

Sincerely,
HARRY REID
United States Senator HR:vb

ahhh, Andrew K Dart... now THERE'S a credible source!



How many of those involved large capacity magazines?

How many required the ability to purchase 1 gun a month?

How many would have not been possible without stricter background checks?
