I think that the guns should come out the next time there are "hanging chads" in a close election.

Jhedge lives for this sh#t. It's the highlight of his day.

The jhedges of the world are weak and they know it. That's why they fear everything.

As a responsible gun owner, I will always support realistic and responsible gun laws.

I thought Jhedge was/is a climber? Wasn't he the one serially pissing on Reardon's grave? He just likes riling those who are easily riled.

Either way, if you come here to "debate" these issues, don't be surprised when somebody disagrees with you. Hyperbole is the name of the game. I've been labelled an anti-gun liberal c#m rag by some in these debates, and a gun nut by others. Beyond causing me to scratch my head, so what? I know what I believe and where I stand, the labels of others just show their inflexibility and single-mindedness.

Just saw the hedge rant about Chris Kyle.

Whether or not they were defending our freedom, one of the snipers main functions is to eliminate people who are actually firing on our troops!
So the question of our having business there is moot once the bullets start flying.
Surgical elimination is certainly preferable to plan B, namely stand off and bomb regardless of "collateral damage".

So a veteran sniper was killed by another clearly troubled veteran and you as#@&%es want to spin that as a problem with american gun culture? What a bunch of dumbshits. You ought to be calling for better health services to take care of the people who defend our freedom to make idiotic statements like that.

Absolutely, 100% we should have far better health services. Hopefully all those who are fighting so hard for or against gun regulations are fighting just as hard to ensure better health services.

But I think the point remains, the vet who did the killing had a long enough history of documented mental issues that he should not have been holding a gun. Don't you agree? Would you have taken him shooting? I'd probably taken him climbing, hiking, or miniature golfing. It is being brushed over that taking him shooting was a very bad idea in the first place.

My coworker,s son, after serving three tours in Afganistan unharmed, got hit by a drunk driver. And yet some of you remain silent on that claiming that kind of thing is "just an accident".

Drunk driving accidents are not accidents. "Oops, I drove drunk again." No, THAT is bullsh#t.

Drunk driving is just as irresponsible as giving someone with mental issues a gun. The thing is, it is already illegal to drive drunk and there are drunk driving check points. I'm all for doing more. Do you have suggestions?

We can compare guns to cars (again) but correct me if I'm wrong... I don't need a license to operate a gun, my gun's serial number is not linked to me when I buy it, I don't have to register my gun registration to ensure my gun is safe, I don't have to renew my non-existent gun license every few years, and the "tests" to buy a gun are absurdly easy.


I know it is hard hillrat, but try not to lose your temper like the rest of us idiots. We need to hear from the more rational folks on the pro-gun side... the ones who DON'T think Obama is coming for their guns.

So, hedge, one thing I've never gotten a straight answer for:
How are those 300 million guns out there gonna be confiscated?
You can't use the Army and I doubt they will use the National Guard so
how is it gonna happen?"

Reilly,, that 300 MIL is more like 590 Mil now....

And NO SHERRIFS, no local LEOs, no local Natl guard and no military types will have a thing to do with gun confiscation in the USA. Ive yet to find one of those persons that will.. So i guess its up to the loudmouth to come confiscate my guns.. And my double barrels await ...

Unfortunately several southern republicans are lobbying to let people troubled with mental health issues have guns. How does that make sense?

hedge, I do believe I asked for specifics. I really doubt that you can
provide any proof that any military or police entity in any Western democracy
has ever gone door-to-door confiscating weapons. The only way they have
achieved a modicum of gun control in Europe is by limiting production and
sales, primarily of handguns. There is no shortage of rifles in Europe.

This "There coming to take your guns" argument is just nothing more than paranoid rightwing fear mongering BS.

You know that street fight I broke up a little over a month ago would have turned out very differently if guns had been involved. For one thing instead of simply subduing the punk ass I would likely have seriously injured or killed him with my bare hands for pulling a gun on me. If you are going to pull a gun on me you better be damned ready to use it before I get my hands on you. As it was, without guns involved there was no harm and no foul. I have been threatened with guns before.
It did not turn out like the perp thought it would.


Curious, why do they want teachers to carry guns when sailors aboard submarines can't?
And why can't I go to my local Home Depot or Wall Mart and buy dynamite?

Because none of us would survive the dynamite being handled by their empolyees.

Oh, and the right to buy dynamite isn't in the Constitution.
Good luck with that being changed.

There are guns on submarines. They are kept well secure. Much like the way citizens should store their guns, but generally don't.

No brainer.

Actually, back in the '80s I would buy dynamite from the hardware store 3 miles from here.



Anti-gun d#@&%enozzle Chuck Schumer just gave a press conference to denounce the loosening of the knife restrictions by the TSA.
The knife he held up as a prop had a locking blade and is actually NOT permitted under the new rules.

What an idiot!

Hahaha good one Ron.

Dynamite was used in the worst school massacre in US history. Shortly after that horrific event laws were passed to strictly control access to dynamite.
I have to admit it is damn fun to blow sh#t up with it though.


My point is that on Nuke Subs the guns are securely locked away and have to be "issued"
They must have a reason.

They arent required in a sealed tube. And IF a Sailor gets the willies ( some do thier first time below) they wont go to shootin up the tube. An endless ricochet sort of thang i would imagine.

Yet when they surface, they manned the guns..
