    They probably did have a few that initially felt that way back then.

    They also had quite a few who thought enslaving other human beings and owning them to do your yardwork was a good idea. And that women as chattel was a good idea. As with all necessary progress, smarter and more moral people decades later fixed a few of the founders’ grevious and horrific errors.

    Jeez, Chillbilly, is there anything that you can’t find a reason to denigrate?

    He did. And he’s right.

    Please point out what part of Chillbilly’s statement was false.

    The founders had to keep slavery in order to get some states to join the revolution – a decision that led to the Civil War four score later. The last Congress delayed the sequester and debt limit, and it’s here we go again…

    “As with all necessary progress, smarter and more moral people decades later fixed a few of the founders’ grevious and horrific errors.”

    Grievous and horrific by today’s standards yes. That’s where the world was at that time. Yet they were also far sighted enough to build in flexibility for the future evolution of the culture and the country when they wrote the ninth amendment and left the flexibility for the constitution to be added to…

    @ Dr. Canuck

    So every gun owner is a ‘redneck’ with a bumper sticker on their truck?

    And what if the Journal had published, say, the names and addresses of all citizens of Middle Eastern Descent? Or known homosexuals? But that would be different, wouldn’t it?

    What that newspaper did was reprehensible. No occasional ‘bumper sticker’ idiot who you’ve happened to meet makes it any less so.

    Some gun nuts on this web site have repeatedly stated that those who chose not to own guns, should put up a sign at their home stating that it is gun free. Gun owners are just not enjoying the fact that owning guns may make them a target for burglary, and hence not as safe as they steadfastly claim!

    Loving that whole premise of "redneck " vs.
    “normal person”. Two – dimensional enough
    to be worthy of a cartoon mentality ( More comics page "Garfield " than the editorial
    page, I mean.)

    “Gun owners are just not enjoying the fact that owning guns may make them a target for burglary, "

    I would think that a burglar would be certifiable or have a death wish to knowingly invade a household that was armed when he can invade one that isn’t armed thereby increasing his survival iindex.

    So has American society reached the point that you’re not safe unless armed? Whatever happened to the religious influence, the golden rule, and plain human decency?

    funny Doc. But again you have the motivation wrong. People have a right to privacy. But really, it being public record anyway it isn’t a big deal. But now the criminals DO know who does NOT have a gun. Think that may be a bad idea?
