The one eyed man in the kingdom of the blind wasn't king, he was stoned for seeing light.
I promised myself I'd stop coming on this thread before I get accused of "jumping on people who don't agree with my opinion" again.
It's purely amusing and actually fascinating to me how the only people being jumped on and ganged up on are people who oppose gun control and when the one being jumped upon says something remotely defensive they are accused of going against someone who "simply has a different opinion", as Spock would say..."fascinating".
This thread has done nothing but pit two sides against each other. Fine. We can't change your opinion, you can't change ours. I truthfully don't understand the point of it anymore.
"Friendship... is not something you learn in school. But if you haven't learned the meaning of friendship, you really haven't learned anything."
The thread is like watching John McEnroe and Andre Agassi play tennis.
Agassi hits one over the net, McEnroe missed the ball and starts screaming like a little biatch.
There's discourse and intercourse.
Intercourse is fun, discourse is a little more distant.
The problem is that 'people' are way too quick to label someone as a 'gun nut' because they want to possess or shoot any firearms.
I probably am nuts, but I have a hearty eff u to the people who are far crazier that I am - that believe just because I like guns I am a 'nut' incapable of owning one RESPONSIBLY.
I don't know about anyone's mental status and personally don't care.
That is your problem.
I am not particularly fond of reptiles, snakes to be truthful, but I am not going to start picking fights with people on the reptiles threads.
Posting a story where some idiot lets his child get squashed by a boa that he let roam the house is just asking for trouble.
There are tons of people who are responsible reptile/snake/lizard owners out there and posting my fear of them - and telling people that they are 'nuts', 'stupid', 'morons' is kinda rude, stupid and disrespectful.
The same can be said about pit bull owners? Car owners who drag race on city streets? People who smoke in bed and light the bed on fire?
I do laugh at people who shoot their nutz off with a gun, I pity the people who accidentally kill a loved one with a gun and I hate the morons who think that a gun is the best way to solve a problem in their lives.
One other thing?
When you come to a discussion, make sure you have enough ammo to keep in the fight, I get it that you don't like guns - you have stated that opinion ad naseum - when you run out of bullets, yelling at the other person is pretty futile.
Now, I'll get slammed for making that comparison - bullets/arguements - and people will look at it like I advocate 'gun stupidity,' but I don't care.
Rudeness is rudeness and if you go back and reread parts of the thread and don't see it?
I gave is a first thought and wondered how he was able to discern the NJs from the sane people to the bordeline NJs.
I do respect the people who take care of us civilian nut jobs.
But, sometimes I wonder about the professional nut jobs that seem to slip thru the cracks.
Isn't a nut job the same as neutering?

An armed populace ensures a Democratic Republic remains intact. Tyrants and dictators understand this, that is why they enjoy a disarmed populace. ES would rather be a subject then a free citizen.
Hear this all the time & wonder if people really believe what they are saying.A USA military could take down whole other Nations within days will be held in check by a group
of wannabe Rambos with their trusty "firearms". It's laughable. Evidently, repeating this phrase in every discussion about gun control, somehow makes them feel invincible.

And why are these countries not overrun with gun violence, gun crimes, gun deaths? After all, the bad guys can always get guns, but the good guys can't. How come bad guys aren't going around shooting up schools, theaters, malls, churches all the time in those places?

Yes Liz, all these wannabe Rambo types really are laughable, but also frightening - you never know when something ticks them off and they go beserk. It has happened again and again and will propbably continue.
In Denmark, ordinary citizens are not allowed to have guns. Some morons do go around with knives, though, but this was not common just a few decades ago. A law was implemented a few years ago... you're not allowed to go around in public with knives longer than 7 cm. See below:
"In public places, colleges, youth clubs, leisure facilities and the like, it is prohibited to carry a knife or dagger, except as part of a profession, for hunting, fishing or sport or another similar creditable purpose. The ban does not include folding knives with blades of more than 7 cm, which can not be locked in the unfolded position. "

Harper is as close to a dictator as we ever have had - and I hope he is thoroughly booted in the next election.
