Bob, what are you afraid of that you need semi-automatic weapons for?

Headline rocked. Twice.

America won't elect a black (or "half-black") President for at least 40 years. It won't happen. Sorry.

/probably a frontrunner for my vote.
//Wish Hillary wouldn't run because she can't get elected and is very divisive.

crossthread do you know what a semi-automatic weapon is?

Why is a 9mm so much more a danger than a .50 caliber revolver with a farking scope on it?

FarkingZionist, I can call myself "Obama" for 15 or 20 minutes if you like. I like to help any way I can.

sod213 same quesiton to you, do you know what a semi-automatic weapon is?
 
2006-12-12 07:27:46 PM  
I'd much rather face a 9mm than one of those big honking .50 revolvers with the long barrel and the scope.

/Detroiter


Afraid? Not at all. Do you have home owners insurance or car insurance? As applicable, of course you do. Do you walk around 'afraid' that your house is going to burn down or that you'll get in an accident? Unless there is something wrong with you, of course you don't.

If some of you think the police can and will respond in time to protect your life and property, more power to you. I, on the other hand, trust myself much more than the state to look after me.

Off the top of my head, a gun you don't have to cock, letting you fire multiple times quickly.

Let's see you conceal a .50 caliber revolver with a scope on it. ;)

Of course I do. One doesn't need to be ignorant of these things to know the average citizen doesn't need an arsenal of the damn things. Or one, for that matter. Except for Bob, who may or may not live in Detroit and feels the needs to own one.

Really, though, I don't care what your position is on the weapon thing. I just think it's asinine to decide for/against a candidate for his position on one topic. It's what got us farking Bush in the first place.

so give me a reason to ban all semi-automatics but not revolvers.

it's totally arbitrary.

and NOBODY is getting my fricking guns.

I'd like to see the left stop promoting the strawman, "Republicans don't like him because he's black." That's going to come back to screw you guys.

Here's a hint, leave his race alone, and let his critics make the mistake of bringing up race and looking like idiots.

floridian62: the gun control thing could be a serious problem he's crazy if he think we're going to ban semi-automatics

One person can't initiate a ban like that. Even if he was the president. Bush would have banned abortions by now if it was possible.
 
2006-12-12 07:32:08 PM  
For one, I don't find myself going into areas were I would need a CCW, and if someone was to break into my house, I don't need my weapon to be semi-automatic. One shot should take down most perps (I live in a nicer area, no meth/crackheads that can take more than one shot). There were two breakins this year in my neighborhood, but I'm not too worried.
 
2006-12-12 07:32:22 PM  
I'm sure Obama values everyone's input on what his race is, and will take all opinions into consideration before making a final decision.

/flame on!

what is the problem with it being semi-automatic?

my revolver goes BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM BLAM just like a semi-automatic.

i don't have to cock it just pull the farking trigger until it goes CLICK

You have never fired a gun in your life, have you?
 
2006-12-12 07:34:06 PM  
floridian62, unless you're behind sandbags with one of your semi-automatics in your lap 24/7, I'm pretty sure a determined person could take all of your guns.

No, I don't want them. I'm fine with my personal cache.

Actually, no politician would make good on a promise to ban guns or abortion, without chipping away at it first, like placing a few Supremes first....

Besides, once you placate the base, what's left to get people to vote?
 
2006-12-12 07:35:21 PM  
If Obama chose to run for president it would end up being a perfect social experiment to illustrate whether or not American society has advanced itself or not.

Do people judge a man based on his merits or will they judge him based on the color of his skin or his ethnicity. It's one thing to say "I disagree with X because he opposed the war" but it's another thing to say "I disagree with X because X is X and X is between W and Y and I hate W and Y."

/my logic is undeniable

The Dems thought former Representative J.C. Watts (R-OK) that he could not win his majority white district as no whites would vote for him because he was black and no blacks would vote for him because he was republican. He repeatedly showed them wrong.

If the Republicans would stop moving further and further to the right they would be able to pull more black voters and blacks are realizing that the Dems take their votes for granted.

Also, why does anyone feel they need a whole cache of weapons? I can understand rifles for hunting, but is it really that neccesary to have 10 different handguns at your house?

JeffreyScott, can't we just shoot that stupid whore from the ad already?

NH is not the whitest state. That used to be Wyoming, but I guess a few of the farm hands got green cards, so now it's Maine.

Yaleforks, thanks for reviving the "well spoken" meme. You sure are sassy.

And no, the crazy right-wing scuttlebut on Obama is not that he's "halfrican". It is that he is a crypto-mulsim. Seriously, these folks have gone around the farking bend. Time to put tin foil hats on them and set them loose on rafts.

Correct. One handgun in the nightstand or under the mattress (I'm married but we're not having kids) should suffice. If I was to pull the gun, I'd throw a good pat to make sure that my wife was next to me before shooting.
 
2006-12-12 07:44:35 PM  
so why does obama want to ban your one handgun in the house?

Didn't say mine was a semi-automatic.

Also I did say that politicians talk about abortion and guns, but won't do anything about them unless they can chip away with the supremes first.

I've never been able to figure out how having a black father and a white mother makes one "black." Maybe it goes back to the old days in the south where 1/32 black made you "all black."


Yeh, it's a holdover from this country's crazy ass racist past. The idea is that the white race is "pure," (as the driven snow, heh), and that any external drop pollutes the whiteness. In addition, the strongest pollutant is, I think, black blood. This is why, no matter how much whiteness you have in your past, just ONE 'drop' of black blood means you're black. Ergo, when you have e.g., Halle Berry, who is equal parts white and black (although her black parent is mixed - but anyhoo), the blackness pollutes and corrupts the whiteness, which is no longer pure.

The reasoning is like if you have a glass of milk, and then add some motor oil to it - the milk become undrinkable, no matter how much oil is added.

This also explains why Tiger Woods, who is as much black as he is white and Thai is considered to be fully black. Seal's child with Heidi Klum is going to be considered black. I am considered black, in this country. My child with my white wife is going to be considered black.

It all stems from putting pure whiteness up on a pedestal. Think about that everytime you think "Hey, Halle Berry is the first black woman to win an Oscar for Lead Actress."

obama talks like a visionary in front of the camera, but his voting record proves otherwise.

focusing on semis is stupid.

which is more dangerous a .32 walther ppk or a .357 magnum? the latter has a larger bullet and moves at more than twice the velocity of the former.

a woman might want to go with the .32 though cause it doesn't weigh several pounds.

stupid to treat semis different from revolvers, just plain ignorance.
 
2006-12-12 07:52:59 PM  
so...is this a gun thread or a NH is incredibly white thread?
 
2006-12-12 07:53:00 PM  
Obama is not the saving progressive grace most Democrats make him out to be. For example, he refused to support Feingold's attempt to censure Bush. He is a moderate, to be sure.

That said, he's probably one of the better politicians out there, and I'd support him if I could (not a citizen). But still, his image is far, far superior to his actual performance - see e.g. "Maverick" McCain, the actual Republican lapdog.

Why people insist on investing politicians with all this significance is beyond me. I hope you realize that the Democrats being in control of House and Senate, at best, means no new evil-ness will be implemented in legislation. It's not going to be a progressive revolution by a longshot.

There are/were probably a few Jews that would have liked a cache of weapons on hand when the gestapo came calling.

/It's a perfectly valid comparison. Take your Godwin and shove it.


You may want to speak to Tatsuma, but Jews have only two arms just like the rest of us. They really don't need a "cache" of guns.
 
2006-12-12 07:55:05 PM  
Thanks, Desterion, for proving my point. Obama is mostly manufactured hype, just like the Democrats in Congress, just like McCain. They talk a good game, but they WILL let you down if you pin all these hopes on them.
 
2006-12-12 07:55:16 PM  
crossthread: Sure, because your "right" to run around with semi-automatic weapons, which serve no useful purpose outside of the military, is much more important than the possibility that this guy could be a worthy candidate.

actually coyotes are a ligit reason. they don't scare so easy, and they can chase you down pretty fast.

anyone that needs one to hunt though should never be allowed in the woods.

Obama is NOT a moderate. One short glimpse at his voting record will prove it to you. He's a fraud that is just getting everything straight so he can run for president. Much like how McCain is doing. They don't actually tell you what they think. Obama lies so incredibly well that people believe him, despite mountains of proof against it.
