The left-wing stance is just as predictable, much the same as the rest of poolitics.

"propaganda, fear, paranoia, money, but mostly willful ignorance that supports their ideology"

Dude, wtf... fear? You think "we" are actually more AFRAID of gunmen shooting kids at school than the right is? No, "we" don't want it to happen just as much as you don't. But "we" still send our kids to schools. "We" still take them to movies. "We" still go to malls. And while "we" maybe cautious, "we" still go out... sometimes even after DARK... without mommy... without Teddy... and without packing heat!

Do you think "we" are AFRAID of AR15's or magazines that hold more than 10 bullets?

pffft... whatever. Common sense says it is a good idea to regulate ANYTHING capable of slaughtering dozens of people in minutes if it were to fall into the wrong hands or were misused. The more dire the consequences, the more it JUST MAKES SENSE to regulate.

Lots of regulations regarding airplanes even before 911... because consequences were dire... unlikely, but dire.

Same with cars.

But mention any kind of regulation to people who love their guns and are AFRAID of losing them... AFRAID of a federal registry... AFRAID of the government taking over... and all rational discussion flies out the fuking window... because fear is an emotional response... and emotional responses often lead to irrational behavior.


I see the left cares about society. So does the right. Otherwise, how could they make money without a society in which to sell?

Ah, now I can hear the trollin motor!

unlike many lefters on this thread.

And unlike many righters everywhere. I know plenty of lefters who served far more than any righters I know. What's your point?

Man,, this is fun. heh heh.

i see lots of fear on both sides. Oft irrational. Right in my own family too. Make no mistake about it, YOU may not be afraid, but many of your brethren are.

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?

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.

one time,, at band camp,, my gun saved my life. In addition, my guns give me meat in the freezer as well.. CLEAN pure protien nealry fat free, with zero hormones additives, preservatives or dyes. And they provide great entertainment shooting targets. Balistics are quite interesting. As well is the large selection of specialty ammos these days. Ranchers and farmers LOVE the ground hog hunters and the hog hunters these days as that is the only control on extremely destructive species such as those.
