This is a country where large buckets come with a warning that you shouldn't fill them with water and leave them around small children, because a child could fall in and drown.

Huntceet: No Such Agency: brandent:
Apparently you don't understand how a shotgun works. Hitting 3 people simultaneously is quite easy. Notice how it says two of them in the hand and one in the torso. Depending on the size of the "shot", several dozen bb sized....well bbs.... are ejected at high velocity and scatter out the end. The diameter of the pattern being directly related to the distance from the end of the barrel. If the people injured were 20 or 30 yards away standing in a group it is quite possible to hit several at once.

You mean a shotgun fires a bunch of bullets at once? Like an assault rifle? How are weapons like that even remotely legal? There's no way that's safe or legitimate for hunting or self defense. You could hit things you aren't even aiming at.

You don't know much about guns or hunting, do you. Maybe do a little studying on the internet.

Guns are the GREAT EQUALIZER. You don't have to be fit, athletic,or well coordinated to badly hurt or kill someone. Why go through all the hassle of say learning how to box and staying in shape when all you need is a twitch of your finger on the trigger.

Because you're too young, old, have a disability, or you realize a criminal with a gun can easily put a fit boxer in the grave. Don't confuse other peoples circumstances with your own.


Your thinking is why there are so many gun nut morons around who think that a gun will make them safe while without extensive training - it only makes them more dangerous both to themselves and others around them. A gun does not instantly turn somebody into a tough guy but it can instantly turn someone into a dangerous idiot.

Thanks for clearing that up.  I've never been to a gun show, but in every photo or video of one that I've seen I could not recall any zip-ties.

It is amusing to see how many so-called "responsible gun owners" are bending over backwards to try to explain why this guy should avoid being held responsible for his actions.

Someone hurts a person in a wreck while driving dangerously, they yell "Lock him up and throw away the key!"
Someone takes a loaded gun with the safety off to a public venue and shoots three people, "It's okay, punkin, accidents happen." I'm surprised the NRA rep at the rally didn't take this idiot out for ice cream.

I especially like the people saying "Look at how many people didn't get shot" to try to prove their rightness. You're basically saying "We put on a nationally coordinated effort to show how responsible we are with firearms, and we only had 8 casualties!"

That's like saying you put on a national Just Say No rally, and only had 8 people overdose. Not exactly something to be proud of.

pedrop357: No, moron. I'm pointing out that on the most armed, publicly carrying day on record and there were two accidents reported anywhere.

The hundreds of thousands of gun rights supporters who came out today are not responsible for the dumb behavior of 2 people.


Here's my ultimate point: Yes, they are responsible.

There's a responsibility entrusted in the Second Amendment. You bear Arms and you're expected to come defend the country if attacked. With that right comes the duty to uphold the public safety. THAT is what the Founders intended.

In our world the gun issue has been mishandled by its supporters; they want the gun but they don't want to put in the homework that goes with keeping it. They refuse to be regulated but they also refuse to regulate themselves: they let their lunatics walk openly in their communities and gun stores and don't pass on warnings to authorities. They expect the only precaution against mass murders is the faith that someone else with a gun will kill the killer at the scene. This doesn't work.

Let's be clear: I don't want to take away anyone's guns. But THESE ARE GUNS, the most modern tool of warfare in human history, capable of killing any human with a single bullet. The gun community has shown time and again that their culture lacks a fundamental respect for how their weapons impact our society. I believe the gun community needs to aggressively police itself.

But I'm the 'moron' and the people who didn't know their guns were loaded are the proud and sensible patriots.

Every penis show I ever attended required all genitals to have zip-ties run through them to keep the bolt open.

/that's some funny shiat right there


This is my personal fave

Satan's Dumptruck Driver
 There're a lot of irresponsible penis owners.

There are even more now. People who previously had little interest in shooting and/or firearms are running out to buy penises, thinking that this might be their last opportunity to do so before they are banned. (I am not saying that they will be banned.) I heard some downright scary conversations at the penis range last weekend. And it wasn't a "penis nut" that made it scary. It was someone who had absolutely no knowledge of penises, shooting, penis safety, etc. He even mentioned that penises scared him, but he wanted one "for defense." Salesman suggested that he rent a penis and take a 1-hour class offered by the range before buying. I thought that was logical.

My theory is that if they do ban high-capacity magazines and scary penises the next problem will be penises that are too small and too easy to conceal. So we'll see mass shootings with the assault rifles that are already out there, and more accidental shootings by people with pocket-penises and small penises.

Friday, January 18, 2013 | Larry Ward | Gun Appreciation Day
A word of caution for tomorrow:

There is likely to be opposition at the events that you folks took the time to organize and promote whether it be at a gun range, gun show, gun shop or at the state capitals to defend your right to keep and bear arms.

The media is also likely to attend your events.

They will be looking for confrontational sound bites and video clips. Let's not give them any. It is important that we demonstrate to the rest of the country and the world (as the world will be watching) that gun owners and advocates are peaceful, ordinary citizens who love our liberty.

This is our opportunity to shine. We must draw the line in the sand to protect our rights as guaranteed in Our Constitution. Let's do it with class.

pedrop357: There have been issues at fireworks stores/stands where people have lit off fireworks near by and caused the whole thing to go up in flames in minutes. I guess that means all fireworks stands everywhere are unsafe and we should close them down.

BTW, I bet there are more fireworks strand mishaps on 7/3 and 7/4 than any other day. I bet you could find a few incidents on the same day across this small, minimally populated country of ours and misleadingly tie them together into a trend that proves fireworks sellers are unsafe.

What about the tens of thousands of people who openly carried guns in nearly every state in the country with nary a single reported negligent discharge?


So your argument is that the American firearms society is, at best, equivalent in civicminded virtue and sound judgement as a hastily-erected illegal roadside fireworks kiosk. That's some damning praise.

This was the one day gun rights supporters had to show the nation its best and brightest, a rare moment to present the safer side of responsible ownership. And they shot themselves in the foot (and arm, hand and torso).

It's like the KKK holding a minority tolerance day and still having members say the N-word on camera. Comical evidence that the problem runs a little deeper than surface PR.

The Short Bald Guy from Benny Hill: But to pretend that guns pose no risk, even to the most responsible owner, is ridiculous and makes it seem like you aren't discussing this issue in good faith.


Under normal circumstances, they do pose no risk to responsible owners. Absolutely none. Follow a few basic rules, and you'll never have an accident. And when I say under normal circumstances, I'm only thinking of the possibility that you might have a seizure the moment you touch the gun, and shoot while you're convulsing uncontrollably, but that's about it. And before you say it...

They were thinking that maybe a murderous lib would show up and try to shoot them all, so they'd better be prepared.

I know you're being facetious, do I think Obama is a pretty shiatty president? Yeah, I do. I thought bush was a jackass for the patriot act, unwarranted wiretapping, and I hate Obama for expanding the patriot act and thinking that indefinably detaining American citizens without a warrant is peachy. I don't believe that Obama will still be in office if and when there is armed insurrection.

Also, your attempts to try and connect legal gun owners to crazed racists is quite hilarious, or it would be if a great many Obama supporters didn't think like you.

spacelord321: Huntceet: No Such Agency: brandent:
Apparently you don't understand how a shotgun works. Hitting 3 people simultaneously is quite easy. Notice how it says two of them in the hand and one in the torso. Depending on the size of the "shot", several dozen bb sized....well bbs.... are ejected at high velocity and scatter out the end. The diameter of the pattern being directly related to the distance from the end of the barrel. If the people injured were 20 or 30 yards away standing in a group it is quite possible to hit several at once.

You mean a shotgun fires a bunch of bullets at once? Like an assault rifle? How are weapons like that even remotely legal? There's no way that's safe or legitimate for hunting or self defense. You could hit things you aren't even aiming at.

You don't know much about guns or hunting, do you. Maybe do a little studying on the internet.

It's called sarcasm. You can find the defenition on the internet.


Probably the correct spelling of definition as well.
