In fact, in my life, there have never been more new people entering the gun owner status. There have never been more people securing CCW licenses , and never been more hunters afield than now and never been more crowded gun ranges.

and there have never been more people who eschew guns, believe global warming is anthropogenic, bring dogs to the crag, believe in god, are Atheists, eat meat, are vegans, use chalk, chop bolts, sh#t on ledges, pee in the pool, hate obama, kill bears, join militias, go awol, kill biscuits...

that's because there has never been more people.

And we will not agree on child raising technique. Period.

I find that statement rather odd. Do you view me as only an adversary with whom you can never ever agree?

Are you actually stating that you disagree with parenting methods that produce well-behaved children and upstanding citizens all the while never using any physical punishment?

If I boil it down, you only agree with parenting methods that involve spankings or beatings for discipline, do I have that right? You can't be serious?

As far as you tit-willy libs go and your desire to see them leave the planet- AINT GONNA HAPPEN. In fact you loose that battle daily as good americans arm themsleves by the throngs. Ammo manufacturers burning the midnight oil 24/7.

First, I find it ironic that you complain regularly about posters lumping you in with a particular group (Republicans, the right, GWB supporters, etc.), and then turn right around and generalize about "libs" instead of actually addressing my individual posts. I know, it's a chicken or the egg thing, and who knows who fired the first shot, but because "they" do it to you, you feel the need to return the bullshit (that goes for everyone) generalization favor.

Second, I personally find it disheartening, and dare I write tragic, that you rejoice in Americans heavily arming themselves. 2nd amendment aside, what does that say about our country where Americans feel the need to protect themselves in such a manner from other Americans? Are the notions of solidarity, helping one's neighbor, fellow countrymen only so much lip-service, propaganda, and clichés for Hallmark cards?

Third, and this is addressed to you and everyone else on this thread talking about your inalienable right as stated in the constitution to have a gun: could you please point out where in the US Constitution it states that gun (or weapons possession) can not be regulated? The first amendment is not without its limits, why should the second amendment be without limits?

Ron posted
And about a hundred million OTHER GUNS killed no one.. My guns killed no one, and my buddies guns killed no one.. And ALL OF mys customers guns killed no one, and all their familys guns killed no one , and the NRA members guns killed no one and the militias guns killed no one, and the 700K at local gun ranges killed no one, and -- and --- and --- etc etc etc etc etc.

Ron brings up an important point. We should clearly move to a system of incarcerating individual firearms for their crimes against humanity. Why should certain law abiding firearms be trigger locked or safetied when they have done nothing wrong? This is cut and dry violation of habeus musketus. The Supreme Court has decided that the second amendment firmly establishes the legal personhood of firearms and we need to take this into consideration within the greater discussion about guns.

You are arguing with people without a soul. Give up and get as far away from them as possible.

Ron said: Ive has more than a few guns pointed at me degaine. Like a ruger blackhawk 357 magnum,, a model 92 winchester 30-30, and a ruger 308 carbine. Also a shotgun- remington 870 i think it was. And one of those doing said pointing died in that process from my gun. you were able to kill a man who was pointing a gun at you?
And why just the one?
Maybe you should get a bullet proof blankie Ron, you know, for next time, just in case you can't get the first shot off.

BTW, will someone please explain to a technonoob how to insert quotes and links properly?

Hey Ron I thought you were turning over a new leaf?

How about another story? I liked the last one.

could someone help me out? Ron refuses to talk to Canadians.... something to do with the not being amurican or something....

Anyway, I asked previously his opinion on this:!WZx63

Could some kind and accommodating Amurican please ask Ron if in the capacity of gun nut and weapons pedlar he will advocate for the application of this technology as a logical step in keeping guns out of the wrong hands?

cheers, Canook from BC

Mornin Ding,, just getting my first sip o coffee..

Story? Ok Ill combine guns ans BIGFOOT..!;-)

I have a buddy, and fellow taxidermist who just after graduating high school ( hes younger than me) decided to pull a BIGFOOT prank. So him and another guy that later became a well known radio DJ purchased a "BIGFOOT" suit from a well known hollywood film costume company. It was somewhat realistic..

So they began what is still referenced on BF.ORG as the great genoa NV sightings LMAO!.. He told me of how they would wander up the creek just west of town - and how many locals and tourons they were dazzling. The way he described what they were doing is matched in the descriptions on the natl bigfoot site mind you. They had done several daylight wanders in the hills behind Genoa when they decided to do some night time wanders as well.

Then they got the idea to do roadway dashes on foothill road , at night as well- where they would dash across the road well ahead of cars then hide in the brush as they went by- often slowing up or stopping to get a glimpse of the squatch..

So one night they are doing this as a pick up heads south out of town and my buddy does the dash across the road, when he hears the engine of said truck rev to max rpms! He dashes down the edge of the road way to some willows near a ditch line, but to his amazement the truck just veers off the road and through a fence in full on pursuit of what the driver must surely have thought to be an actual factual squatch.

Turns out its a local rancher and it was his own fence he drove through as he schreeches to a halt and begins to fumble with a rifle in a gun rack inside the cab! OHWWW SH#TE thinks my buddy, and he runs for a near by canal ditch while the rancher starts jacking a shell into the chamber. He sat half in water and tules while the rancher wandered about looking for his squatch kill to be for quite a while, sweating all the time while praying he wasnt found. The rancher got back in his truck and drove the field for a while then vacated the scene and my buddy and his friend decided to put the suit and joke to rest not wanting to become the first recorded squatch kill on Nev.

This is STILL listed as a viable authentic "sighting" over at by the way ....

edit: BK,, i talk to Jim B all the time.

Let's be honest. Guns are fetish totems at this point.

Even the "wild west" knew that people wandering around with loaded guns in cities was a bad idea.

(Also that Prickly Ash Bitters are the bomb!)

Ya know its kinda funny these 'got m'GUNZ!!!!' types actually seem to revere the 'strong western sheriff' mythology of the American West (religion)... you know, like Wyatt Earp.

Wyatt Earp would pistol whipped Bundy and sold his cows at public auction. He would have shot those militia boyz like they were yeller hanky wearing bangers from Tombstone.

The Armed Citizen:
TROUTDALE -- Police responded shortly after 8 a.m. to a report of shots fired at Reynolds High School. Police confirmed about 9:20 a.m. that a shooter in the incident was dead.

At 10 a.m., police confirmed that one student had also been killed. The students names and genders have not been released.

SWAT teams were working their way through the school, releasing students from classrooms who are leaving with their hands over their heads.

Another day, another school shooting. Ho-hum.

You will FALL!!! The public is getting sick of the pathetic excuses. You will find you won't last long little cowards. You and your guns are NOTHING. THIS IS MY COMMUNITY YOU ASSHOLES. As far as I am concerned, you are the enemy.

"Can the crawling creator crawling in the same dark as his creature create while crawling?" One of the questions he put to himself as between two crawls he lay.

And if the obvious answer were not far to seek, the most helpful was another matter. And many crawls were necessary before he could finally make up his imagination on this score. Adding to himself without conviction in the same breath as always that no answer of his was sacred ....

So while in the same breath deploring a fancy so reason-ridden and observing how revocable its flights he could not but answer finally:

"No he could not. Could not conceivably create while crawling in the same create dark as his creature."
