I think she is onto something - get all the college kids gun permits. It's a great idea. The elderly, the poor, African Americans - get them all gun permits.

Maybe then they'll stop trying to take away their right to vote.

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

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

LoL!

Don't call me sir, it significantly inhibits the deniability of my age . . .

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

[-] 5 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

I have guns - hasn't hindered my liberal persuasion in the least.

[-] 2 points by TommyNYC (730) 1 year ago

Just another wedge issue.

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

kinda - but it also has the potential to redefine that debate. Imagine if more liberals were in fact members of the NRA - I'm not a member myself, but certainly I could be. We could change the language and the focus.

[-] 2 points by TommyNYC (730) 1 year 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)

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

Corn syrup!

GMO? or the fat content?

[-] 3 points by TommyNYC (730) 1 year ago

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

[-] 2 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

got it.

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.

[-] 1 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

imagine what a wonderful resource it might be - with just a light tap to the back of the occipital lobe one might harvest hundreds of throwaway hand guns, applicable to purposes only I might envision . . . .

. . . . . just imagine . . . . .

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..

[-] 3 points by ZenDog (20541) from South Burlington, VT 1 year ago

why don't you just kiss my ass.

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.

[-] 3 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

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

[-] -2 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

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

[-] 2 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Range seems fine

[+] -4 points by podman73 (-652) 1 year ago

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

[-] 3 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year 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) 1 year 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.

[-] 3 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year 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.

[-] 5 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

Just retarded, freak.

[+] -4 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

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

[-] 3 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year 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!!

[+] -4 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year ago

Nervous, ehh? Oh well...

[-] 3 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

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

[+] -4 points by yobstreet (-575) 1 year 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.

[-] 5 points by bensdad (8977) 1 year ago

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

We're dealing with negative BP.

[-] 2 points by TommyNYC (730) 1 year ago

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

[-] -2 points by CitizenofAmerika (-71) 1 year ago

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).

[-] 2 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year ago

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

[-] -2 points by CitizenofAmerika (-71) 1 year 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?

[-] 2 points by WSmith (5271) from Cornelius, OR 1 year 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!
