Cup_O_Jo: Anyone who agrees with what he said has no concept of what the 2nd is. It is to protect us from GOVERNMENT. THE END.
oldfarthenry: vernonFL: Jim Carrey is from Canada.Maybe if Canada had a 2nd amendment, they wouldn't have lost the war of 1812.Explain to me, Cletus how this is winning?[i1151.photobucket.com image 583x240]
DirkValentine: Dimensio: DirkValentine: dittybopper: Mangoose: xanadian: They probably ran out to buy AR15s not because they were thinking, hey, I wanna be on national TV, too! But because they rightly predicted the potential backlash: people wanting to (and may or may not be successful) ban "assault weapons."I'm willing to stand by my statement. If your reaction to Newton was "Oh shiat, better get a gun!", you = soul-less cock-demon*.Actually, it's rational economic behavior, if you expect some sort of a ban. Here is why:First, if you assume that any sort of a ban will have a "grandfather clause", exempting weapons that were owned at the time the ban was enacted, that will only make those guns with those certain cosmetic features more valuable after the ban: The cost of "pre-ban" assault weapons rose steadily after the start of the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban, and dropped after the ban sunset.Second, if you assume that the ban will also include some sort of mandatory turn-in, the government would be required to compensate you for your guns. If you produce a receipt saying you purchased that gun for $1,200 a few months ago, the government would be constitutionally required to cut you a check for that amount.Really, there is no way for you to lose from an economic standpoint: You either make a profit in the future, or, at the very worst, you break even.That's why it's economically rational to purchase guns in the face of a possible ban.You are truly on the the finest gun apologists around. You will come to their defense and never back down. You are always right.Thanks for being so ideologically consistent, and a complete insensitive jerk to boot.Your observation is apt; only a "jerk" would present a rational and fact-based explanation.No, it's the fact that all he ever posts in gun threads is pedantic arguments that don't even remotely address the fact that there is a major problem with gun violence in this country.You want a fact to deal with :We are 1 ...
Because People in power are Stupid: People should go out and buy more guns to prevent mass killings like the one in Sandy Hook?
Mangoose: I agree. If Newton made you want to run out and buy a gun, you're a soul-less cock-demon. There are plenty of good reasons to buy a gun, that is not one of them.
