You know,  I have never lost a cell phone.

I take public transportation every day, and I'm in a cab about an average of once a week, and I've never left my phone in either place. I've been drunk enough to try to steal a New Orleans police horse, but I've never been so irresponsible as to leave my phone in a bar.

Are you telling me that I'm more responsible with my phone than these people are with a deadly weapon?

It came up in another thread recently, but apparently needs to be said again:

If you forget or misplace your firearm, you are not a responsible gun owner.

what_now: But everyone in the country DOES walk around with a cell phone. And when they lose it, we make fun of them.


well consider there is no insane and overfunded lobby arguing that your cell phone is the sole manifestation of your first amendment rights

jigger: Karac: Wright, who is in his first term, told The Denver Post he often carries a concealed handgun inside the Capitol and under state statute has the right to do so as a peace officer.

Question: what does the police department he works do if one of their officers loses a weapon?

Wait. He's a state rep AND a cop? You can do that?


According to the article, he was in the Fruita PD from 2007 to 2011.  Which means that either you can be a state rep AND a cop, or you can be a state rep who manages to forget you haven't been a cop for three years.

I believe that was me. Coincidentally, I submitted this article.


Yes, you get credit for that.  I also recall a very silly argument ensuing that involved Fark's favorite upstate NY firearms enthusiast being absolutely wrong.

It's just the inevitable consequence of an insane philosophy stating that every person in the country should be walking around with a loaded gun on them at all times.

Personal right to bear arm is revisionist garbage concocted by political think tanks as a wedge issue to get conservatives to the polls.
