    Wow, 80 million U.S. ticking time bombs. It's a wonder any of us is still alive. I've been shooting since about 1965. Got my 1st carry permit in 1989. I wonder if it takes 60 or 70 years for this defect to kick in???

    "Everyone who possesses firearms is an inherent threat to themselves, their families, and the general community." So says the article.

    Guess we had better take firearms away from LEO's and the military. That way we will all be safer.

    What has that guy been smoking?

    Wow. Projection, you think? These weaselly little liberals always talk about people erupting into violence, unable to restrain themselves... Because they (the liberals) are unable to exercise any impulse control, they assume that no one can!

    Sidenote - I am SICK of liberal writers using the term "weapon of mass destruction" when referring to firearms!!!!!!! A WMD is nuclear, biological, or chemical. Other weapons are NOT WMDs! Ok, I know that you guys know that...

    I'm sure I speak for others when I say that I'm only a "danger" to thugs, criminals, or anybody else with ill intentions.

    I've owned for a VERY long time - as long as I've been legally allowed to - and none of my weapons have EVER hurt anybody.

    The irony is that to make sure gun owners are more dangerous, find ways to restrict how much they can practice.

    The author is concentrating on a situation he thinks could and does, but rarely; he is ignoring the instances in which someone uses a gun to succesfully, often without firing a shot, to protect themselves or someone else which happens far more often than his scenario.

    My used to be conservative brother is absolutely against concealed carry.

    Finally admitted to me he is against it because he would probably shoot someone within 3 days on the road if he carried daily.
    He doesn't seem to understand the flaw is his, not everybody else s'
     
  13. His argument is strangely akin to: As a man, I have a peni s, so if I get out of control and lose it, I may rape women or kids.

    The guy went full on tard, you never go full on tard.

    Have a great gun carryin' Kenpo day

    What he's really saying is:

    "I can't be trusted with anything remotely dangerous so it follows that no one else can either. I have no self control and if my mommy didn't lock up the knife drawer when I was a child I would have stabbed my entire family in their sleep when they grounded me that one time. Since I'm such a worthless human being, I know no one else could possibly do any better than I, so the entire country needs a nanny so I can feel safe from all of you.....and myself."

    There is some truth to the adage: The pen is mightier than the sword. Idiots like this actually influence other idiots.

    The problem with liberals that make judgments of others, is that the only example they have to go by are themselves. So they assume that others are as shallow and perverted and uncaring as they are.


    See the problem?

    Read a few sentences, and had to give up. Some arguments are so faulty, you can't honestly speak to them. Your points of contention are too numerous, obvious, and trite.

    Hoplophobia (n.): The irrational fear of weapons, correctly described by
    Freud as "a sign of emotional and sexual immaturity". Hoplophobia, like
    homophobia, is a displacement symptom; hoplophobes fear their own
    "forbidden" feelings and urges to commit violence. This would be
    harmless, except that they project these feelings onto others. The
    sequelae of this neurosis include irrational and dangerous behaviors
    such as passing "gun-control" laws and trashing the Constitution.
    -- Eric S. Raymond
