    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?

    ------------------------

    One thing?

    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 have a BIL who was an LAPD cop and he had an attitude that "civilian nut jobs" were all that he dealt with.

    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?

    Thats what the main stream media wants you to believe. Its what ES wants you to believe.

    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.

    How come, say for instance Canada, England, Germany, Denmark, countries with strong gun-control laws, are not tyrannical dictatorships?

    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.

    Look at how we talk to and about people. Look at how we TREAT people. We wonder why people lose it and want to take everyone out. No wonder kids think there is nothing wrong with torturing students they don't like, look at how the adults behave.

    Well, since we are talking about 'wannabe Rambos' let's talk about the "Stupid peaceniks", can we?

    It's pretty insulting to be thought of as a 'wannabe Rambo' because I like to shoot a gun or want to own one.

    That would be just like me saying that people who want green energy or drive hybrid cars are treehugging idiots.
    Or that women who like cats are lonely and incapable of having a relationship with others, especially men.

    ---------------------

    I haven't really read anything about people being Rambo or wanting to be Rambo - on this thread.

    Of course, if I want to own a gun, bullets and want to target shoot on the weekends, that makes me a 'clear and present danger' to the people around me?

    What an effing laugh.

    I fear the idiots that drink and drive, talk on a cell phone, smoke cigarettes while driving -I fear people who smoke in bed, prepare my food or someone who decides that a nice biohazard in my water or air is the answer to THEIR problems?

    ----------------------

    I do not think my guns are an extension of my penis, neither is my car, wallet or tax bracket.

    I find the insinuation that I am a "rambo" because I like guns to be a direct reflection of the people who either do not like, trust or would not be able to handle a gun or the responsibilities of owning firearms.

    If you don't like it or cannot handle it, suck it up.

    My lifestyle choices shouldn't bother you - nor should my responsible ownership of any firearm.

    No desire to be Rambo. Would just like to protect myself in my own home.

    But I sure as heck wouldn't keep my gun on the dresser like you do. If I had one it would be on the nightstand - it's much closer than the dresser and I wouldn't even have to get out of bed!
