ArkAngel: Mentat: I see no way this cunning plan could fail.Because people who would shoot up a playground are the type to follow the existing law?
Granny_Panties: You get what you vote for. I don't feel a bit of pity for them. On the other hand I live in Wisconsin and I have Scott Walker, who I didn't vote for. So maybe I feel some pity for all 10 people in NC that don't vote straight ticket GOP.
FlashHarry: this sounds like it would mix well with a stand your ground type law.
MinkeyMan: I here and now swear if I ever become rich, I going to start a charity aimed at arming the unemployed. Automatics, explosives, armored vehicles, body armor whatever they can legally get. And free training in the best use there of.
Almost Everybody Poops: I have never understood America's obscene obsession over guns. The whole point of the 2nd amendment was to overthrow a tyrannical government, and over the course of 200+ years a well regulated militia is now defined as a single person secretly hiding his/her gun, which he/she may have bought w/o a background check at a gun show.
JAGChem82: Now, organized black people marching with guns in their communities
MinkeyMan: I here and now swear if I ever become rich, I going to start a charity aimed at arming the unemployed. Automatics, explosives, armored vehicles, body armor whatever they can legally get. And free training in the best use there of.I'm sure the NRA and GOP will fully support my efforts.
DarwiOdrade: What happened to you, North Carolina? You used to be cool.
MisterLoki: The fark is going on down there?
Whiskey Pete: Firethorn: The difficulty to this is that I care about violence levels period, not just gun violence. We can reduce violence better by doing some things like addressing poverty and ending the 'war on drugs' than by restricting firearms.Exactly. Because we need to address the overwhelming number of crimes that are committed while wielding a rutabaga.
Whiskey Pete: numbquil: If it is, we should prohibit the police from carrying firearms in barsAnd with this statement you are no longer worth the time. Derp on , Garth.
Frank N Stein: log_jammin: Frank N Stein: The same observation could be used about gay marriage, medical marijuana, or a number of issues and it would still as useless as using it for concealed carry.except that people have been trying to get those things legalized for a long time now. and, as I said, the right didn't give a shiat about the right to carry a gun in bars before. now it's suddenly a pressing issue.Frank N Stein: What I'm getting at is the argument* observation is useless.1. what do you think I'm "arguing"?2. The observation I made doesn't need to be useful, nor was it intended to be. I just found it amusing.Here's what I believe your argument is:"I believe widespread concealed carry only became an issue in 2005, thus the merits of widespread concealed carry can be detracted"Am I close?
TV's Vinnie: Article mentions nothing about establishing a state religion or putting 13 year olds into adult prisons.
Click Click D'oh: Peter von Nostrand: Pointing out that stupid laws are stupid doesn't equate to freaking out and acting like it's the end of the world but I'm sure you already knew that and were just feeling a little a bit derpy for a few secondsYes. It's suddenly so clear that it's stupid to legalize the carrying of firearms by licensed individuals in bars and parks because.... Umm... Fark says so? Oh, I know. It's because in all the other states where it's already legal there were sudden up swings in bar and playground shootings by CHL holders... Hang on, someone just handed me something. Hmmm.. Apparently that last claim about shooting sprees is completely false and that didn't happen.Wait... hang on.. Don't Obama supporters try to claim he's not anti-gun because he legalized carry in National Parks? OMG! GUNS IN PARKS!! OBAMA'S STUPID NUR NUR NUR!!Try to pass a law legalizing carry while drinking? Yeah, that's stupid. Making it illegal to carry simply because you are in the same room as alcohol? Heck, the only way that makes sense is if you believe that inanimate objects have the power to... Oh, never mind. Suddenly it makes sense.

grxymkjbn: Retards should be HEAVILY armed. Insanely irresponsible and violent people should have MOAR GUNS!!!!!It's the only way to be sure.
Witty_Retort: I need a logical explanation for districts 1, 2, 4, 9, 12 and 13[www.ncga.state.nc.us image 750x297]
Click Click D'oh: Peter von Nostrand: Farking great, Rick Perry is now going to call another session. He won't stand for being out-whataburgered like thisIt's already legal to carry a gun in a park in Texas, and anywhere that sells alcohol as less than 51% of their total revenue. It's not legal to drink while carrying though. Much like pretty much all the states that allow carry. NC isn't passing anything new, but that won't stop Farkers from freaking out and acting like it's the end of the world.
Whiskey Pete: Where are the resident FARK gun nuts™ to either defend or denounce this particular bit of legislation?
DarwiOdrade: propasaurus: DarwiOdrade: What happened to you, North Carolina? You used to be cool.They voted for the blah guy and the state GOP is going to punish them for it.Obama only won NC by about 13.7K votes (about 0.4% of the votes). They also voted the state GOP into a supermajority in both houses - they kinda deserve it.
Warlordtrooper: FlashHarry: propasaurus: FlashHarry: this sounds like it would mix well with a stand your ground type law.They'll regret it when some black kid gets caught on a playground carrying a gun.you mean the law applies to blacks too? somebody should probably tell them...Some black woman was told SYG applied to her, She got 20 years for standing her ground walking out of the room, retreiving a firearm from the garage, returning to the room, and firing a "warning shot" above the head of her (abusive) husband and her son.
Piizzadude: I just cannot wait for the shiat to collapse down there. I am pretty sure that it is going to be epic. I just hate to think of everyone that is gonna get caught in the crossfire, both literally and figuratively.
