I never looked at it that way. I've always been in favor of gun control but you bring up a good point sir.

Wekk, duh. If they all had guns they wouldn't be liberals anymore.

Just another wedge issue.

[Removed]

[-] 2 points by TommyNYC (730) 2 years ago

I mean it's a wedge issue because it focuses on cultural differences. Also, it's hardly central to our well-being or democracy either way.

My point is that neither side of the issue has any serious impact.

1) Legal guns don't pose any serious public safety issue (compared to say, corn syrup, for example)

2) Taking away assault riffles and extended clips is not a serious threat to civil liberties (as opposed to police macing and beating peaceful college students protesting)

I'm suggesting that high-fructose corn syrup (not necessarily GMO) is more of a public safety issue than is gun-control.

If it were mandatory for all women to own (not carry, but own) a gun, think of what that would do to the rape statistics in the US.

Bullshit. A liberal with guns? What for? To kill helpless animals? Because being a filthy, emotional liberal you would never use them in self defence.

Okay. So you liberal filth with your guns. Versus we conservatives with our guns. Time to play..

Thanks for posting.

Gun control is just way too much "mothering" for me - everybody should have a defense and resource acquisition device, including the "violent offenders"; oops, what was I thinking.

What the state as mother has done is empowered uncivil behavior, uncivil speech, and "issues" that should not be given license.

Time to move forward, the wild west is over chumps.

[-] -2 points by yobstreet (-575) 2 years ago

Not where I live - where I live the gun range is open 24 hours a day - truth.

[-] 1 points by WSmith (1429) from Cornelius, OR 2 years ago

Range seems fine

So you think no one has the right to survive until police help an Get there? You sound like the chump to me.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (1429) from Cornelius, OR 2 years ago

No guns, no dead theater goers.

England and Japan and many others have it right, moving forward. We are held back by hillbillies, national disgrace, international embarrassment!

[-] -3 points by podman73 (-652) 2 years ago

Well then you should move to another country to show your outrage. I'm sure England or Japan would love to have you as a citizen, then you woul really show us hillbillies a thing or two. Thankfully you don't have the right to tell me I can't protect myself.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (1429) from Cornelius, OR 2 years ago

Father shoots 15 y-o son in intruder mistake!

Protect yourself, retarded freak.

That might not have occurred if there was a gun to their heads. And Briton would not be 57% Muslim right now, either.

[-] 4 points by WSmith (1429) from Cornelius, OR 2 years ago

Just retarded, freak.

[+] -4 points by yobstreet (-575) 2 years ago

You armed as you say that correct? Because that's the difference; it inspires more civil debate.

[-] 2 points by WSmith (1429) from Cornelius, OR 2 years ago

Gun nuts and nuttery aside, the public's right to not be shot by you dumbasses trumps your crazy wild west notion of gun tot'n!

Support the RIGHT TO NOT BE SHOT!!

Nervous, ehh? Oh well...

[-] 2 points by WSmith (1429) from Cornelius, OR 2 years ago

Sorry about your brain, will there be a service of some kind for it?

[+] -4 points by yobstreet (-575) 2 years ago

You're like what, twelve? I really hate the idea of berating kids.

You hurt my feelings... PTSD.

Is she friends with Grarafolo? You know, the one that screeches if you don't vote for Obama you are a racist.

guilt by association - love it !
ever hear of Rev Wright or Saul Alinsky ?

We should have a tally for logical fallacies on here ;)

We're dealing with negative BP.

Two great Americans.

Oh yes. But ultimately they don't matter. In 2008 the Amerikan people decided they would by into the philosophy f those two ( and others of that ilk).

Janeane rocks!!! Got a problem with strong leftist women?

[-] -2 points by CitizenofAmerika (-71) 2 years ago

When they say that if you don't like (worship) Obama then you are a racist then no I don't. What part of that don't you understand?

[-] 1 points by WSmith (1429) from Cornelius, OR 2 years ago

After hating Bush and Cheney for 8 too long years, and suffering all the damage and disaster they perpetrated, we love Obama. But we HATE (all over again) the obstruction and sabotage Republicons perpetrated on us all over again! They just won't let us vote them away and have a decent government and country. They are just vindictive and evil bastards!
