    The new liberal narrative for gun control is to protect the children... this is something all Americans believe in not just liberals. But their logic is to take away the rights of owning or at the very least limiting ownership of firearms by everyone including law abiding Citizens. In doing so they believe it will stop the deranged from committing mass murders. If that's the case then using THIER logic we should all surrender our computers to save the vast number of children from being victims of child pornography and online pretators..... I say this to simply point out the ridiculousness in their logic. Taking away computers would no more stop child exploitation than taking guns would stop lunatics from committing murders... Criminals who don't follow current laws won't start obeying new ones. unfortunately until our progressive brothers and sisters get their heads out of their ***es this is the reality we live in especially here in New York... I have used this argument many times only to be on the receiving end of blank stares, regurgitate fake facts or just being brushed off. That being said I try to take every opportunity I can to point out how illogical their logic is. If I can sway just a few our way maybe just maybe it will start a new trend. I doubt it, but hey I'm trying to win this war one ******* at a time!!!

    This is nothing new and is part of their tired old arsenal of deceptions and lies. No different from ...

    if you really cared for the poor.... (more money down the drain)
    if you only cared for (name your special interest here...blacks, hispanics, gays, and so on) (basically a bribe to get votes)
    if you only cared about the environment....
    the list goes on.

    Hello, welcome to GlockTalk. Please let me refer you to the political corner, a specific forum just for politics, because we don’t have enough of these threads cluttering up our fun here in okie’s famous corral.

    Liberals do not have logic, they only feel things!

    The worst mass school shooting ever in the U.S. was carried out by a nut job using two handguns at VA Tech. They don't need an AR to kill lots of folks.

    I constantly see liberal logic for solving problems as:

    Take away other people's money.

    Take away other people's rights.

    Take away other people's freedoms.

    Take away other people's children (let the village raise them).

    Take away other people's elected representatives.

    Take away our nation's identity.

    Take away other people's votes.

    Take away The American people's Constitution.

    Take away other people's right to free choice.

    Take away other people's right to speak.

    Take away other people's culture.

    Every solution they seem to find for their perceived problems, is based on taking something away from others, and giving it to someone else who put no effort into getting their own thing. Then making the claim that we are all equal.

    You beat me to the punch. "Liberal logic" is an oxymoron.

    I had someone talking to me, telling me we need to ban assault rifles. They’re not used for hunting. There is no purpose other than to kill most efficiently.

    This person also likes to drink a beer every now and then. So I countered, why don’t we ban alcohol? Is does nothing to benefit anyone. It’s not a necessity to live. It’s a convenience and something people enjoy. But it leads to disease, cancer, alcoholism, not to mention DUI and other crimes committed when someone’s inhibitions are lowered.

    If we are going to ban things that serve no purpose other than to hurt, why not go forward with banning alcohol as well?

    He thinks that’s absurd and doesn’t think alcohol is the problem, of course.

    Assault rifles not good for hunting? Tell that to the farmers whose crops are being "pig out" by hogs, javelinas and other 4 legged munchers. Coyotes, cougars stalking your pets? Good luck using your broom.

    If you want to protect the children. Stop all the pc coddling in schools. Let them experience failure. Let them earn their grades. Kick them out of the house to play so their whole social existence isn’t succeeding in fantasy games.

    I care about all those things. I just don't care for the same reasons, or in the same way. I try to look at facts rather than emotions.

    And be a parent, not their friend. Beat their asses when needed. They need to know actions have consequences.

    Liberal Logic is a massive contradiction in terms.

    I understand your point. But gun owners keep bringing up the "Deadly" handguns? Do we really want to start another Ban handguns movement?

    Plus, take away our nation's borders...or maybe that falls under taking away our identity...
