    An honest question for the gun control crowd. Is this about your hatred for an inanimate object or is this about saving lives?

    Oh, who cares about lives? This is all obviously just about hatred of people who favor a different deathstyle. Some “honest” question.

    Well, once again, Kip, you’re way off base. It is an honest question because for many, if not most, gun control people, it is all about the gun, not the lives.

    Got to say, the NRA is doing more good work towards gun control in the USA than any other group since the founding.
    I’m figuring less than 20 more years now, and the 2nd amendment will be gone.

    You mean the misinterpretation of the Second Amendment?

    Yep, they keep that up and there’ll be a MONSTER massacre some day directly traced to weapons bought at a gun show. And that massacre will be at some sports or political event that will get several big names in politics or celebrities. And there will be such an uprising of discontent with the NRA interpretation of the 2nd that it will be amended. And then we’ll wind up with British type gun regulations. MUCH stricter than if the NRA had continued on the same path it was on pre 1980.

    Thanks for the confirmation by the gun control crowd that it is really all about the gun and not about the lives saved.

    BTW OldCoal, it isn’t the NRA’s interpretation, but the Supreme Court’s interpretation from several decisions on the matter. The latest is DC vs. Heller. How about you get your facts straight.

    Also, are you aware that gun confiscation and bans in the UK and Australia made the murder rates go up when, according to the gun control twits, it should have all but disappeared? How is that possible? Oh right. You’re so focused on the bad ol’ gun that you refuse to acknowledge people will continue to do bad things even when you take a tool away.

    Toon accurately represents the “La PIerre NRA”, which is NOT AT ALL the original organization, or even up to the time the rational leaders there were driven out. It IS notable that many gun enthusists, like GHW Bush, left the organization when it went nuts for armor piercing bullets and protecting huge magazines, NOT hunting rifles and shotguns.


    I’m a gun owner with concealed carry license, which, proof of compentence for that license should be the minimum requirement for obtaining any hand gun, and a numer of rifles not really suitable for hunting, or “street sweeper” shotguns. (as examples.)

    The GOP wants to rid America of the ACA,which SAVES lives, but not the NRA.

    I don’t hate guns. I think a lot of guns are marvels of engineering. I admire the work that goes into making a good gun. I believe that there are legitimate uses for guns. I have nothing against hunting, for example. I don’t hunt, but my relatives hunt, and from time to time I’ve eaten meat they hunted. I have no objection if people want to shoot at targets for sport. I also think that guns can be dangerous, and it makes sense to be careful in their use and storage. I have no objection if someone wants to keep a gun at home for protection, though I’m not convinced that people who own guns are safer than people who don’t own guns. I wish there were fewer (a lot fewer) guns on the streets. I think we can probably pass some better gun control laws, and I’m pretty sure that we can better enforce the laws that are on the books already, but I also think that we need to change people’s attitudes to violence.

    “It is an honest question because for many, if not most, gun control people, it is all about the gun, not the lives.”

    Guess I don’t understand the question, then. How could it be about anything but lives?
    Minor example, but still — limiting the capacity of semi automatic guns — how could that be about anything but lives?


    Is there someone that believes making it harder to kill more people at once is trying to disarm the populace or subjucate people to a dictatorship?


    Of course it’s about saving lives. Like forcing people to wear helmets while riding motorcycles.

    “Of course it’s about saving lives. Like forcing people to wear helmets while riding motorcycles.”
    Well, I have to say you live up to your name when it comes to magazine capacity, that’s for sure!

    So, you say it is all about saving lives. Why is it you want to restrict guns when they save so many lives? It is estimated by the CDC that between 300,000 and 3,000,000 crimes a year are prevented by guns. Surely you would agree that a percentage of those crimes would have ended up with one or more people dead, right? There are plenty of those stories out there, yet gun control advocates never ever address the lives saved because it goes counter to their anti-gun agenda.
