So hipsters should buy guns for their children?

Hipsters are cool with stripping away your rights, as long as a Democrat is doing it.

muck4doo: Hipsters are cool with stripping away your rights, as long as a Democrat is doing it.


My gf's brother is uber hipster. Last month when we went out to dinner for her family's Christmas party, me and the old lady's cousins were exchanging range and hunting stories. While left out, the hipster brother was interested in going to the range (as he's never shot a gun before). Moral of the story, I believe, is that some people just don't have experience with guns, so the issue is distant and simplistic.

/It was also funny when we were in the parking lot of the restaurant smoking and her cousin brought out his AR-15 from the back seat of his car for him to see.

I may be interpreting this wrong, but not allowing parents to give their 5 year old an assault weapon is wrong since it strips away your rights.

Teach your kids how to hunt.  Make them see what guns will do.  Tasty tasty things.

Wasn't that "kid" in his twenties?

I mean, just how retarded are these gun grabbers? Do you honestly think calling people in their twenties "kids" is helping the situation? How about giving them responsibilities, jobs, and a reason to live? How about not pigeonholing them into perpetual adolescence?

Connecticut school shooting inspires bullet-proof children's clothes

In his factory in Bogota, Miguel Caballero makes bullet-proof vests attached to bullet-proof backpacks which he has tested with machine guns and handguns to show they can withstand a barrage of bullets.

Until then, relax. No need to be upset.

I was into hunting way before you were.  I'm shooting shiat that you and the rest of the square community have probably never even heard of.

We should make sure everyone has the high-powered weapons possible in order to hasten the end result. It's the only logical conclusion.

These days you could even just start your kids on a higher end air rifle to teach them how to handle it. You get all the gun safety from it without all the lethality.

the kids in Newtown and Utoya and all of those "hipsters" in Aurora got a lifetime of gun experience pretty quickly.

Talk about missing the point. Then again, you're a conservative, so it's kind of a given.

Not really as relevant as the magazine cover didn't have any kids carrying Trapper Keepers...

FTA: . It doesn't seem so far removed from the rhetoric being spewed by the gun lobby in the wake of the Newtown massacre.

Right. The NRA recommends armed police in the schools -- that's not far at all from letting elementary school kids bring their own guns.

A rational discussion would be impossible with someone who makes a logical leap like that.

Even the link in the sentence goes to a school board member -- not a gun lobby organization/spokesperson, as the writer claims the person to be -- who wants to arm teachers.

stuffy: I've said it before. The only way your going to get people to give up guns, is to make them feel that they don't need them.


The only way to do it is to make them realize why they shouldn't have them. A friend of mine once had to clean brains off the wall of an apartment because an emotional 16-year-old girl knew how and where her father stored his handgun. I'm sure that gun was really handy for "protecting his family".

An FB acquaintance announced this week that he was applying for CCW. This guy is one of the most emotional people I've ever known. He lives and works in one of the safest suburbs in his area. It's ludicrous. I already fear for anyone in his daily life.

Yes life was better in 1993 when nobody had access to guns and hence schools were safe from them.

It made me wonder how familiar people are with police staffing levels in their community.  For example, the small town where I grew up had a total of five schools (3 grade, 1 middle, 1 high) and a total of ten cops.   So, they would need to increase their staffing levels by at least 50%.

My current county has 125 schools and 1269 cops, so it's roughly at the same level of staffing.  How much are taxpayers willing to pay to make this police idea happen?
