    txleapd "So, basically, you just pick the definition you like... Got it."

    No, I use the definition that I have lived over half of my life knowing; there are military service members and then there are civilians. So, basically, you didn't read any of my other posts and you like to comment from ignorance... Got it.

    I didn't take that from his post at all. What I took away was that he is using the definition he's used his entire life, and just as you reject the definition that is the commonly accepted one used by the vast majority of society, he's rejecting the premise you're using to justify your using the definition that you've chosen to use. :dunno:

  3. Just because you have done something one way - or thought something one way - doesn't make it correct or really even okay. What it does is shows that you're to bullheaded to admit you're wrong.

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions, including you. That doesn't make those opinions correct, and it CERTAINLY doesn't supersede actual definitions.

    Here's a question for you: Where would you classify National Guardsmen? Civilian or not? Unless deployed, they're only soldiers for a little more than one month out of the year (38 day - 1 weekend a month, 2 weeks a year). The vast majority of the time, they are just regular joes and janes, working their jobs, hitting the bar after work, etc.

    So, that means that my maternal Grandmother, who grew up in a southern family, was correct when she used a certain word to refer to "African-Americans", because that was what she was taught and grew up using all her life?

    There really shouldn't be any firearms that government agents have access to that all free men don't. Their lives are not more deserving of protection then that of my family.

    Then you would be wrong in GA and many other states they sign a 2 year contract that causes them to be responsible to repay the cost of training if they quit they cannot work in LE til the debt is paid.

    I'm glad that firearms manufacturers and owners are realizing that we are fighting not only people against guns, but also politicians. And sometimes, the only way to get politicians to listen is to apply the right kind of pressure.

    Here's my way of looking at it, imagine it being cars and restricting what ford could sell to people but not cops. We ALL know that gun sales are through the roof. People are afraid of them. People are using them in bad ways. Politicians LOVE to take control and "do something for the kids". They ban Ford from selling cars to civilians in NYS. Why WOULDN'T Ford say screw you NYS cops too? They stand to lose a LOT more of their customers than just cops. And last I looked, we are fighting the same thugs cops are. My family is all police. I would say the same to them. When people realize the cops are just people. Just like them, they will see they need to be able to take care of themselves. When cops can't because of politics, pressure will be put upon legislators that will give us our rights back.

    My state's motto: United we stand, Divided we fall. Sometimes it hurts to stick together.

    Is the N-bomb a currently accepted name for black people, when used by one outside the black community?

    I'll grant you that I wasn't specific enough in my statment. But the so-called "definition" he's using was learned behavior, and goes against the commonly accepted societal definition which the vast majority of people use.

    Much like your grandmother using the N-word to describe black people. It's only a small subset of society which uses the word, and it's not a commonly accepted way to refer to members of the black community, so thank you for making my point for me.

    Kudos on the assist.

    I'm searching for that now. I think I'm sure who said it, but I don't want to point fingers unless I can find the posts. The threads have been locked, and the posts may have been pulled. But it was here on GT awhile back.

    Still searching though. :steamed:

    Again, I ask why the intellectual dishonesty? If you really felt that way, you would be for disarming the military as well. Why not? Just because you have been fed a better media campaign regarding them?

    How are rank and file LEO's tyranny? They are simply the people who put their lives on the line, for you people like you who hate them, even when there isn't a war on. They risk their lives everyday for people people who despise them and try to to kill them just because they decided to enter into a profession with the mindset of trying to make the world a better place.

    Since when is selflesness tyranny?

    You are my friend, but I am here to tell you, that you are going about this the wrong way.

    I won't stop being your friend, even if you hate me for what I do for a living.

    Knowing you for sometime, I can honestly believe that you got caught up in the mob mentality; because, as an individual, I know you aren't that way.

    The SCOTUS came about when a family tried suing a police department after their daughter was murdered by her ex-husband, who she had a restraining order against. The contention was that they expected the police to protect her.

    The ruling was that there is no Constitutional requirement for the police to protect a single individual over society as a whole, unless a previous special relationship exists. We serve the people, not a person.

    The ruling was not the "cops get to thumb out noses at anyone who calls for help, and ignore them" that people like you make it out to be.

    As a practical matter, we cannot be everywhere all the time, and protect everyone. So if something happens to you, you don't get to sue the cops, because we couldn't be there to stop it.

    That's what the ruling was about.

    Its a good start in the states with these typs of laws it seems like a good way to get the attention of a large group to send that msg to another large group with deep pockets.

    That is interesting. Will people who are victims of violent crime in the "no gun" states be able to sue the state for not being allowed to protect themselves?
