Pinko commie. Clearly a nut.

OK, so I'm forming a militia. What are we going to use for guns? How about everyone brings their own? That sounds reasonable. And besides, if the militia itself owned the guns, that would be socialist.

Public?

The N.R.A.'s worst act is not it's interpretation of the 2nd Amendment. It's the outright rejection that gun owners and gun companies have an inherit social responsibility.

Also, I give it two days before the right calls for a public vote of USSC judges.

Lighten up, Francis. Besides, I don't think someone needs to be a communist to be a pinko, just sympathetic to the cause. Not totally red, just a leans that way, as in pink, ergo "pinko." Now that bastard Earl Warren, OTOH...

How was Warren Burger sympathetic to communism? Is it because he's not identical to today's Republicans?

He had an autographed picture of Leo Trotsky and he was in favor of fluoridation of water.

Doesn't "pinko" mean someone who's not a communist (i.e., a "red"), but close to it?

Heh - now Warren Burger is a commie, too. Lulz - if it had a monetary value the baggers could solve all of our financial woes with enough left over to buy every man, woman, child and zygote a little sparkly flag pin.

Can somebody tell me exactly why people who don't own guns don't want other responsible citizens to own guns?

The vast majority of gun owners have never even considered being violent. The problem is violent and unbalanced people not the weapons they carry.

A hammer in the hands of a carpenter is a tool. A hammer in the hands of a psychopath is a weapon.

Considering how the NRA thought that gun laws were great when applied to dirty commies or Negros I is amused.

Also, you can't build a house with a gun.

Don't get me wrong, I own guns and don't particularly want any stronger gun laws. But conflating guns and other tools is silly. Yes, a gun is a tool, but it's a tool to kill people. It's a bit different.

How so? Seriously, the NRA has fought laws against so called "Saturday night specials" and other inexpensive firearms as being racist and elitist when bans were called for by those shooting Perazzis and Rigbys while calling for bans for little old ladies on fixed incomes and downtrodden African Americans.

"Whoever can pick up a frying pan owns death." - William S. Burroughs. Not saying I agree that hammers, frying pans and guns are equivalent, but I just like that quote and the above reminded me of it.

The 2nd is a pretty clear example of a piece of the Constitution whose original meaning is heavily tied to the time period in which it was written.

hillbillypharmacist: Yes, a gun is a tool, but it's a tool to kill people.


A gun is not a tool to kill people, it is a tool to launch a projectile long distances at high speeds in parabolic arc.

If the user chooses, either consciously or accidentally, to make that arc intersect a person, the tool is not at fault, the user is.

An automobile is also a very deadly weapon. If it's user makes it's path intersect with a person, the car isn't blamed, the user is.

Is this a sincere argument? Or are you just practicing making insane arguments and seeing if you can get away with it?

Explain to me what part is insane. A gun, exactly like a car or a hammer, does not have the capacity to make judgments or have intentions. It takes an irresponsible user to make them dangerous.

DamnYankees: Why do guns exist?


Because they were a natural evolution from bow and arrow, spears and javelins which were used for hunting and, admittedly, war and self-defense.

But the simple fact is that if you're going to ban certain segments of the population from having weapons of any sort, you must ban them overall. If you can not trust a law abiding citizen with a gun, you can not trust any single person to have a weapon in their hands regardless of if they work for the government or not. I mean if there were no guns there would be no war, right? And since war is bad, you must want to stop all killing.

Ban anything that can lead to a person's untimely death. That way there's no more untimely death.

Marcus Aurelius: Remember when Smith and Wesson tried to include a trigger lock with every hand gun they sold? Man, did they get crucified, or what?


I was referring to their opposition to bills requiring gun owners to report stolen guns or face fines. I've personally helped political candidates on the state and federal level fill out the NRA Legislative questionnaires where they ask would you support bills like that.

I'm also referring to the law passed that said gun companies are immune to lawsuits that they knowingly continue to sell guns to gun stores that have been linked to illegal gun sales in cities. You can't claim personal rights and then ignore the personal responsibility that comes with it. The first thing we are all taught when we first use a gun is that you are responsible for it.

benlonghair: It takes an irresponsible user to make them dangerous


Cops do dangerous things with weapons all the time. Soldiers do dangerous things with weapons all the time. Are you saying that they're irresponsible?

Face it, a gun is something that, even when used responsibly, is dangerous.

Why is that? Seems extremely easy to just say "guns are allowed in this place but not in that place." Staggeringly simple, actually.

benlonghair: Ban anything that can lead to a person's untimely death.


Must be fun to argue against positions no one holds. Makes it so much easier for you to feel smug and self-righteous.

A gun is a tool. Like a butcher knife or a harpoon, or uhh... an alligator.

Then can you explain the endless pointed questions?
