feckingmorons: vartian: feckingmorons: 18 people were murdered in Chicago in the first 10 days of the year. Nobody died at a gun show. If you want me I'll be at a gun show, they are obviously much safer than Chicago.

We agree - all guns are clearly very dangerous and should be regulated.

No, not all of the murders were with guns, 15 were, two were with knives and one guy was beaten to death. The common denominator is criminals. We need to better regulate criminals.


You're telling me that the parts of Chicago that are impoverished (West and South sides) are the parts with a crime problem?

What a bunch of lightweights, right? I mean, you can take down 20 six-year-olds in maybe, what? 30 seconds? Don't even need to reload! Pause for a quick MAGAZINE change, and you can give everyone a quick double-tap to make sure they're not just pretending.

Can we just ban stupid people?

Now I understand this proposal won't be popular with everyone, so how about we just ban high-capacity assault stupidity.  Like, if you're really, really stupid and in a position where your stupidity could do a lot of damage, then you get taken away and melted down and fed to geese or something.

Granted, this proposal would change the makeup of Washington DC, the major media, all of Fox "news," and most of the NASCAR, MLB, and NFL fan base, and it would cut into the profits of the  Anheuser Busch brewing company, as well as decimating the two major political parties.  But in the end, wouldn't it be worth it?

More and more, the government is creating these scenarios to turn public opinion against guns, gun ownership, and gun owners. Since the school shooting, it's really kicked into high gear. The goal is to get enough people riled up about the dangers of guns that passing stronger gun control laws becomes a cakewalk.

Judging by a lot of the responses in this thread, it's working.

Whether it's guns or cats, people who hoard/collect anything obsessively strike me as a little "off." Seriously, some old lady has five cats and she's "that crazy old cat lady." Some old dude has 57 guns and he's "that patriot who's preparing to defend himself against the forces of government tyranny." Nope, nothing odd about that, no sir.

Pray 4 Mojo: How the hell does one fire a pistol into their own palm when firing it by sliding the action?

Was he holding it by wrapping his hand around the end of the barrel?

Dude is insanely stupid or lying.


I blame those idiotic Steven Seagal movies where he racks the slide on his 9mm by pushing on the front sight. Might look cool in a nonchalant kind of way, but it's about the most unsafe way to load a round/check the chamber ever thought of.

CSB: used to work with a guy who liked to drink and play with his .45 1911 in front of the bathroom mirror. He didn't show up for work a couple of days and when he did make it back his whole left arm was in a cast. Turns out he was doing a "Seagal move" and ended up shooting himself in the palm.

Police say a 30-year-old man was accidentally killed during a game of quick draw at an automotive shop in Boaz.

PAT GARRETT.
I kid you not.

Sadly a lot of stories like that out there. I remember hearing about this one a while back:

http://www.wdaz.com/event/article/id/15841/

Long story short: I guess the takeaway is that private gun owners are no more or no less responsible than law enforcement officials.

You base that on three anecdotes that don't involve law enforcement officials?


one anecdote is enough

Riddle me this...

If we should except everyone as equal; doesn't that, by it's very nature, include gun people?

And, if you don't; wouldn't that make you intolerant towards a group of people?

/ just sayin'

When I pass a school I don't think, "Look at all those straight-A students!" When I pass a church I'm not sure it's filled with kind, thoughtful, spiritual people When I merge onto the highway I'm not confident I'm surrounded by competent, attentive and alert drivers.

Going by the daily dipsh*t like this guy and the one aiming at his daughter in yesterday's thread and the derp in these threads I'm thinking gun owners rate about the same kind of assessment. At this point I think advocating increased gun regulation would be the minimum requirement for "responsible gun owner."

I submit that statistical outliers exist in every group. Such statistical outliers skew the results of any graph/study.

I, also, submit that judgments rendered based on statistical outliers would be illogical.

I, also, submit that criticizing the intelligence or penis size of any debate opponent would be counter-productive.

My point?

There are roughly 88 guns for every 100 Americans. Roughly 240,000,000.

This is a story about 1. I would define that as a statistical outlier.


And based on that logic, since nearly every story is about one gun, they are all statistical outliers.

Hey! You just cured cancer!

I've found people who are afraid of owning a gun are the same type of people who are afraid of heights. Basically they do not trust themselves not to have some momentary insanity and jump off the cliff or blow their brains out. A lot of people in here fall into that category and probably shouldn't buy a gun. Just don't assume everyone shares your fears.

I'm waiting for one of these people to discharge their "empty" gun into their own foot, and for 35 people to spin around and light him up, and probably each other. With everyone with their itchy trigger fingers lately, a tragedy like that wouldn't surprise me at all. Much like if there had been 5 people with concealed carry weapons in the Aurora CO theater shooting. They wouldn't all know who to shoot, they'd just each see 5 other people with guns drawn, or "five targets".

Bastard. You beat me to it by 30 seconds.

But seriously - the firing mechanism will be damaged if they dry-fire the gun without pressing the barrel against a firm surface, like the temple. Obama will take your gun away if you damage it by not pressing it against your skull when you check it.

Why is the answer either arm everybody or disarm everybody? The problems causing gun violence runs much deeper than who has and who doesn't have a gun. It's education, opportunities, mental health, proper parenting, and yes, easy access to firearms. This isn't going to be solved any time soon, but as long as the debate is reduced to guns good v. guns bad it will never be solved.
