Ron, it just occurred to me... you are right... after 30 seconds of video where the gun carrier is clearly the aggressor and punches the other driver in the back of the head, we just can't be sure what really happened... you just never know.

But, from the following statement:
Larry: Evidently a 22 year old Salt Lake local died after attempting the Corona Arch rope swing with too long a rope. That's the second death out here in a week due to rigging failure.

we can clearly conclude:
Ron: They want instant gratification but forget the knowledge and dues part.


The other day in the bar a friend told me I was being a dick to you. I agreed. He asked why. I said because you deserved it... but I promised to mellow out a little. I still think you deserve it... maybe not as much as hedge lays it on you... but still.

He decked from a simple often done swing. Ill stand by that statement.

Point is, you stand by that statement based on NO INFORMATION... yet can't conclude from a video of a sucker punch that the aggressor was in the wrong.

But what that has to do with a gun debate thread is beyond me.

It has to do with your biased processing of information and obstinance backed by nothing but ignorant opinion.

Why is it you target me with such nonsense and insults.

Because you often regurgitate sh#t from right-wing blog sites, fail to critically evaluate anything, and/or display a glaring lack of consistency in judgement. As demonstrated with the rope swing, sucker punch, etc.

Take a hint wes, you DIDNT see me on yur trail thread giving you a shot did ya...

I don't see why not. If you had something funny or relevant to say, it wouldn't bother me a bit. And as far as I recall I don't post on any of your threads. But that doesn't mean I can't call you out on your bullshit on other threads. You click here and post sh#t, it is my right to give my opinion of that sh#t.

FWIW, you know exactly where the rope swing discussion could have gone, but it didn't because I may be a dick... but I'm not that big of a dick. I think people should be able to take whatever risks they want, and who am I to judge them as long as it doesn't affect me? Who am I to conclude he wanted instant gratification and assume he had not paid his dues?

Style is also a major diff between you and i.

Right.

I assume you mean the Tahoe Lobster thread? Well, when you are wrong you are wrong. And when you think you are right, contrary to peer reviewed scientific studies, just because you have fished in tournaments... well, what more can I say?

What good are tough dog laws in California if some dumbshit like Giffords-Kelly can bring his military-style assault-beast here from out-of-state, and use it to raise holy hell on our beaches?

It's all about personal responsibility, and Giffords-Kely displayed the lack of theirs.

No wonder he's all in favor of more bigger gun control. He probably thinks we are all as irresponsible as his family.

I don't know, from that short video it is hard to tell... Ive seen young sea lions just like that one pull crap on the beaches they most DEFINITLY should have been punished for.

Besides, the dog ain't even his. He wasn't even around when it happened.

Police say the dog broke from its leash, and no laws were broken.

That is why you all get called idiots.

Well!

What this has to do with a gun thread is this:

Gabriella Giffords was shot in the head and numerous bystanders were also shot and killed.

The Giffords own a dog.

The dog and Mr. Gifford were walking on a beach, the dog was properly leached, the dog saw a seal and being a dog bolted and ripped the leach out of Mr. Gifford's hand and attacked the seal.

Mr. Giffords, a gun owner himself as is his shot in the head wife, has recently chosen to highlight how easy it is to buy an assault weapon at a gun store and because someone is afraid that if Mr. Gifford might maybe be successful in somehow influencing legislation to include a ban on assault weapons then some people who want to buy assault weapons will not be able to do so.

This possibility, no matter how incredibly far fetched, pisses off some people and those people then decide to take out their anger at Mr. Gifford by saying he was irresponsible as a dog owner

Because they themselves would never ever walk a dog on a beach without first wrapping the leash multiple times around their wrist to make sure the dog could in no way get loose.

And that is what a man walking his dog on a beach has to do with a gun thread.

Norton, you are wrong. Now don't get all upset and accuse me of being a stalker, etc... but I'm pretty sure it was the daughter who was walking the dog.

Y'all only need shotguns. Great for trap and skeet shooting which is way more fun than target shooting. The only thing for bird hunting, and, with slugs, great for big game hunting. A lot more sporting and requires learning skills for getting close.
Plus....if an intruder was in my house i know that my first choice for defense would be a shotgun.
Plus....if they were limited to single shot, all of the above would become more sporting, therefore more fun, and mass murders by gun would be a thing of the past.
Lets amend the Second Amendment and change the word "arms" to "single shot shotguns."

then the first source I read saying it was Mr. Gifford was wrong, and I stand corrected, thank you

this new information now completely blows out of the water ANY relationship between Mr Gifford buying an assault weapon and the dog getting loose, in fact he did not own the dog

so who was the dumb fuk anyway who tried to make some kind of statement about all this?

Well, Kelly is still giving a black eye to the atronaut club... clearly.

(TGT posted the video, most likely from a pro-gun site... like patdollard where all his other "information" seems to come from... chaz and ron just jumped on for the ride)


oh, this one is great...

http://patdollard.com/2013/03/retired-army-officer-dhs-must-surrender-their-war-weapons-to-department-of-defense/

"With the massive purchases of almost 3,000 new armored vehicles (MRAPs) and 1.6 BILLION rounds of ammunition, with associated weapons, who in the U.S. do they intend to kill? Short answer: You and me! Anyone they think is standing in their way to impose a new Marxist government! Anyone who stands for the U.S. Constitution!

We must demand that our representatives (Senators and U.S. Representatives) stand firm and immediately force, by law if necessary, the DHS turn over their arsenal of war making equipment to the Department of Defense."


Personally, I don't trust the government, but I agree we must DEMAND that the government STOP this government TAKE OVER! We all know criminals don't obey laws, but that doesn't mean the government agency that is poised to take over the country in a violent Marxist revolution won't!!!

I know who Jim Carrey is, but who is Greg Gutfeld?

Googled it... he wrote "The Joy of Hate."

His website is "The Daily Gut: A Handkerchief of Hard News Soaked in a Sneeze of Thought Snot"

With riveting music reviews that any 12 year old could be proud of:

"A perfect rock album providing the perfect soundtrack to cheap 12 packs downed in a parking lot. Imagine Slayer having sex with the Polyphonic Spree in a decompression chamber, and this is what you get."

Bravo Fux News... high quality guests.

Fuking morons.
