I think silverware sets should be limited to a single place setting.  Why does anyone need 8 knives to eat?

SubBass49: MagicMissile: Mrtraveler01: MagicMissile: Mrtraveler01: MagicMissile: This whole argument has nothing to do with safety and everything to do with exerting control. The government desires control, the libtards desire to lash out at a group of people that the media has told them are bad and so therefore have been molded to support the government in the process of a massive power grab.

We have been painted red or blue with one color fighting the other. There is no middle ground, there are no other opinions other than what the media tells you.

This is how a libtard thinks.

It must be fun to have a persecution complex like that.

must be fun being a whiny biatch

Oh snap. I just got told.

Sorry, I wont' ruin your strawman building then.

I think you just like to insult people and be passive aggressive and that you have nothing interesting to add to any conversation period.

As opposed to the logical and totally insult free quotes from MagicMissile:

People who want to take away others rights and firearms, are pathetic weaklings.

These pathetic weaklings will have to dodge bullets to disarm we Americans who have a sack and are willing to stand up for our Bill of Rights.

So I guess you can go buy a lobster and masturbate vigorously with it while you fantasize about Americans being brutalized by their own government. Idiot.

This is how a libtard thinks.

( the problem is that we aren't red or blue, we aren't only conservatives or liberals, and your rights are my rights. If I lose you lose. Stop watching and believing the media, think for yourself question authority, read a book, use your brain for once, be independent /thread )

Jim_Tressel's_O-Face: 3StratMan: Actually... soldiers are quite often issued both handguns AND M16's.

But if there's 'no difference', then why not just pistols then? It'd save us a lot of money right there.


Actually the Marines gave up firearms altogether in 2011. Fark gun advocates explained to them that guns are simply one possible tool- if someone wants to kill, they will always find a weapon.

The Army is winding down their use and will be done handguns and rifles by 2016.

syrynxx: bronyaur1: the pursuit of gun restrictions causes gun violence.

No, dumbass.  The point is that gun restrictions have a negligible impact on gun violence. Although I think if you use 'too stupid to breed' as an insult, you shouldn't have picked a nym that paints you as someone unlikely to ever breed or even be given the opportunity.




My screen name has nothing to do with My Little Pony, but you apparently aren't bright enough or have had sufficient life experience to have assumed any other possibility.

But apart from that, please do explain how a single example might "prove" that "gun restrictions Have a negligle effect on gun violence.". In particular, Captain Logic, please share with us your data on what Chicago gun violence rates would have been in the absence of the extant pursuit of gun limitations? Is it that gun violence would be the same? If this is your claim, what actual quantitative evidence do you provide for it?

Or..... Are you utterly unable to do anything but sputter because you have nothing to back up your argument?

Quo erat demonstratum, you dumbfarks. Your baseless and pathetic claims are precisely proving MY claim that none of you spouting this moronic talking point comprehends what a weak argument it makes.

JosephFinn: Wow. It's almost like the gun manufacturers weren't simply selling their murder weapons in other cities to be transported to Chicago for murders.


Hey now, only a very small percentage of gun dealers is providing the majority of weapons to criminals. Of course the NRA has helped write legislation that makes it nearly impossible to go after those dealers. But that's good, you see if we can get more guns in the hands of criminals, then law abiding citizens will have no choice but to arm themselves in order to be safe. That creates more demand for guns and more jobs, which is good for the economy.

Sure it is, that's why cities need stricter gun control than rural areas.  The only real use for a gun in a city is as a weapon against people.  There aren't any deer or quail.


But there are coyotes and I'm afraid they may eat my rats.

The Brits have a different idea: ban sharp points on the ends of long knives. Then a criminal will have to beat you to death with the handle, which might be more trouble than he's willing to go to.

bronyaur1: The NRA dummies keep pounding the pathetic argument that because Chicago has bad gun violence problems and its leaders have pursued gun restrictions, therefore the pursuit of gun restrictions causes gun violence.

If you are so dumb and incapable of logical thought that you sign onto - let alone repeat talking points supporting - this argument, then you might just be (a) too stupid to breed, (b) a Fox viewer, and (c) a redneck.


Idiot. The take-away is that gun control is ineffective, not that it causes crime. Lame strawman is lame

Uh, Senator, were you actually at the classified briefing on Benghazi
where we all watched the footage and explanations of attack?

No, I wasn't.

Why is it that people who claim to be trying to get to the bottom of Benghazi can't seem to make time for the actual intelligence briefings on Benghazi?
