(Opposing Views)   Gun advocacy group insists that them raffling off the same gun that killed Travyon Martin was totally unintentional. Why were they doing it on the day that George Zimmerman's defense attorney was scheduled to speak, you ask? Just a coincidence   (opposingviews.com) divider line 277

Pussies. Not even man enough to own their bullshiat.
 
2013-10-29 04:36:21 PM
What's this? That website is a POS. I get a second in and stupid windows pop up asking if I'd be interested in their other bullshiat.

fark Opposing Views.

Now that that is out of the way,

What's going on here?

ZIMMERMAN! DRIN-.... uuhhhhhghh.

Ow. You feel that? Right there on my side. Just the mention of that guy's name and my liver is like, actually throbbing.

Ow.

That's going to look nice hanging on some proud redneck's wall next to his n***er hunting permit.

They're auctioning the same model of gun, not the actual gun that killed the kid, for what it's worth.

dr_blasto: fark Opposing Views.


Did Wampler pay for all these Opposing View links?

1) It isn't the same gun. When someone kills someone else with an Impala do we recoil at buying one off the lot?

2) There are millions like it. I have several handguns and I can state with near certainty that someone has been killed by someone wielding a firearm exactly like mine. But it's not mine, so it doesn't matter.

3) Boy, they're really stretching for ways to demonize guns, aren't they?

4) Next time make it a Sig Sauer or a Glock instead of a POS Kel-Tec. You'll raise more money that way.

Also of note: the fact Dick Cheney is still alive is proof that there are no gods and karma is bullshiat.

Yeah, it's all a big coincidence.

I didn't say it was unintentional. But since it's not actually the same gun, why get upset about it? DNFTT.

That's in poor taste.

Are we still going to bicker about this?

They just need to wait until racist shiatbag Holder releases Zimmerman's property so they can auction off the real thing.

Why do they gotta be dicks about it? It was absolutely intentional. It's fine to like guns. It's not fine to be assholes.

A) Yet another "Opposing Views" link
B) About guns
C) About CISM
D) On Fark.com


No thanks, I'll just offer a blanket response: anti gun people are idiots.
 
2013-10-29 09:52:58 PM
Opposing view?

More like opposing reality.

'Scuse me, I have to go find the raffle.

I want to own a piece of history.
 
2013-10-29 09:54:43 PM
I take it that there are people who can't get over the jury verdict yet.
 
2013-10-29 09:54:48 PM
You know what's 40 times as deadly as guns? McDonald's cheeseburgers; that's what.

Nabb1: That's in poor taste.


Amen.
 
2013-10-29 09:57:51 PM
Why is it these "gun advocacy" groups make the sane and sensible gun owners look like loons?
 
2013-10-29 09:58:32 PM
So what?
 
2013-10-29 09:58:37 PM
Oh FFS! Do they actually think everyone else is as dim as they are?

Shostie: They're auctioning the same model of gun, not the actual gun that killed the kid, for what it's worth.


Why wouldn't they?  We know it's effective for self-defense.  Real-world tested.

Is it me or do these "gun advocacy" groups make the rest of gun owners look bad?
 
2013-10-29 10:07:56 PM
Kel-Tec makes some interesting designs, but their quality is crap. That is why the Ruger LCP is such a sales success compared to the Kel-Tec P3AT it is based on, because Ruger can make a quality firearm.
 
2013-10-29 10:08:15 PM
Oh jeez this shiat again? KKK killed 3500 blacks in its lifetime as a racist organization, African americans kill each other that same amount in less than 6 months per year.
Sadly I agree with the KKK on this, keep focusing on george zimmerman - since there is a blind eye turned to the other thousands of problems.

/anyone else tired of this topic? kind of like the kardashians, you just can't get them to go away.

Fixed that for you.

I guess we have to. One side decided to use the weapon of choice in a raffle. Brought it up in poor taste, as you have mentioned, with all kinds of apologies.

It's sad that none of the ticket buyers will get to win a Zimmerman autographed Bible.
 
2013-10-29 10:11:26 PM
Outrage at that group, but totally okay to have Trayvon's mom testify about stand-your-ground laws on Capital Hill?

because that case had everything to do with stand your ground, right? Right?!?

Ah never mind...carry on Fark libs...ain't no hate party like a Fark lib party...

IDK man, your comments made the most sense.
 
2013-10-29 10:12:42 PM
Wait. Are people still butthurt about the verdict months after the fact?
 
2013-10-29 10:13:21 PM
A Kel-Tec PF9? What a piece of garbage. I'm not even a gun snob and *I* wouldn't want one of those. I feel like I'm slumming it enough with my Tauruses. But thankfully...the M1 Garands are on their way to redeem me.

Seriously...gun nuts are the the worst kind of assholes, as much of my recent arms experience and this story make clear. A farking BIBLE and a 9mm? Republican Jesus, indeed.
 
2013-10-29 10:13:52 PM
Ask anyone under 20, and they'll tell you that gun owners are weird and socially dysfunctional.

That demographic shift is a long-term existential threat if you believe in the second amendment, and gun owners have nobody but themselves to blame for it.

You want to preserve your second amendment rights? Stop treating your gun as a license to behave like an antisocial shiat ball of a human being.

I'm sure she offered some valuable insight that Congress needed--especially about the "Stand Your Ground" law that played no actual part in her thug-son's early demise or the subsequent trial...

Man, any excuse to use the n-word...

Fark.com: come for the gun stories, stay for the blackface arguments. This website is starting to become a one trick pony, especially when many stories are originating from Opposing Views.

udhq: Ask anyone under 20, and they'll tell you that gun owners are weird and socially dysfunctional.



1) Anyone?  Make blanket statements often?  Or are you just a garden variety troll?

2) Yes, because people under 20 are known for their wisdom and vast life experience.  Oh wait, they're not.

3) Socially dysfunctional?  That's news to my friends and coworkers.
 
2013-10-29 10:21:37 PM
Who cares? Is that particular gun any more dangerous than any other gun?
 
2013-10-29 10:23:04 PM

Frank N Stein: Wait. Are people still butthurt about the verdict months after the fact?


Decades.  It will be decades that they are biatching about this.  They're as bad as the ultra-conservatives still frothing about Roe v. Wade.  It will never end.

I dunno. Maybe I run with a different crowd but I have a different experience. Sure, I'm over 20 (but under 30), but gun owning as a thing doesn't draw any judgments like you're describing from most people. I mean, I live in liberal Chicago and most reactions I'd get if I brought up that I own a gun is "Oh, that's cool. Did you see the Bears game?"
Now, if a topic came up involving our hobbies and I stated that I enjoy duck hunting (or a similar topic in which I might mention I own gun) and the guy was being gay about it, I'd probably not be friends with such a person. Because really, who would want to be friends with such a stick in the mud?

Only if you're a DA pushing for a conviction, a gun-control group working the death-from-a-thousand-cuts strategy, or a legislator looking to pass gun bans. Otherwise, no, not really.
