YOU may not be afraid, but many of your brethren are.

If they are so afraid, why do so many of them live (and go out) in areas with higher crime rates (big cities)... as opposed to hiding out in small towns or up in da hills... amassing an arsenal?

And this consevative has served the public too,, unlike many lefters on this thread.


I spent two years in a jungle "serving" my country

and came back with malaria, among other reminders of my service

everyone I served with was a liberal, and patriotic as hell

shove that patriotic I served crap up your pussy ass


and which branch did you suffer and almost die in, Ron?

A psychiatrist who treated James Holmes told campus police a month before the Colorado theater attack that Holmes had homicidal thoughts and was a danger to the public, according to documents released Thursday.

Yet... well, you can google what he was allowed to purchase... EASILY and CONVENIENTLY.

Why NOT have a registry where those in charge of public safety can enter that kind of data and prevent HOMICIDAL maniacs from EASILY and CONVENIENTLY amassing weapons and ammo through legal channels?

He should have been reported and denied purchase. Simple as that. That's the kind of changes I'd advocate for.

Oh, and they still go out in public because... surprise... the odds are fairly low of becoming a gunshot victim.

Quick question...

How effective do you think the 7 round magazine limit is going to be in New York? Do you think it's effective to tell them they have a year to dispose of them/sell them out of state?

I bet neighboring states LOVE that.

Oh, you mean like better mental health care? Universal background checks? Training and licensing to own firearms?

Oops, no... you mean repeal of the 2nd. Good luck with that.

the odds are fairly low of becoming a gunshot victim.

And so, they are not afraid... which means they can make a rational decision... like the sale of machines designed to and capable of killing dozens of people in minutes should be regulated.

Glad we got that cleared up.

Now tell me the rational thought process behind resisting a comprehensive gun registry cross-referenced with records of HOMICIDAL maniacs and known gang members. And please include as many references as possible to a tyrannical government hell bent on taking away pea shooters so they don't scratch their tanks... or a stand off with hoards of criminals in the driveway.

Lets condense that article:

The only reason people buy guns because they want a bigger penis.
We should try and accept and understand what gives other people satisfaction, except nobody really understands why a gun makes your penis seem bigger.
You dont want a gun, you,ll shoot your eye out!
It,s reasonable to trade our rights and privacy for protection from miniscule risk.
Massacres are bad.
I,m probably afraid of the dark and the boogeyman. With a gun.

huh. my guns provide meat in the freezer an the occasional weekend can shooting entertainment. Not so sure about the false sense of empowerment stated in the article. I guess since i go fishing i,m more likely to die of lead poisoning than someone who only eats sushi out, if i follow the logic of the article.

all i was doing is streamling the author,s POV.

The UK had 35 gun deaths last year, 20 of which were suicides - only 15 gun murders in a country of 60 million. We have 12,000 gun murders a year.

Guess it depends on what metrics you care about. Again, your fixation on murder, murder, murder shines through in everything. Actually, I'd rather live here.

See: http://www.nationmaster.com/graph/cri_tot_cri-crime-total-crimes

The UK has less than 1/5 the number of people as the US, but they have more than half as much crime as we do. Sure, fewer murders, but in general a more crime-ridden society.

Perhaps you're missing Ron's overarching point, because he's not fixated on one single sort of crime.

If other countries agreed that more guns = less crime, they'd be arming the populace. Instead they're doing the opposite.

yeah right!

p.s. i'm sure my swiss climber buddy would'nt agree with you. he'd say ur a stupid american who never ate horse!

also, don't forget the swiss have their tunnels equipped/ready with TNT in case of an invasion. maybe we should arm all the tunnels in the us.
