Egoy3k: So just to sum this up;Safe storage laws == disarming the populaceMandatory safety course == disarming the populacebackground check == disarming the populaceSomebody should probably tell my government that because we have safe storage laws, mandatory safety courses, and background checks and yet somebody forgot to come take away my guns!In other words, don't be stupid.
Secret Master of All Flatulence: Chummer45: But I am anti gun-culture/gun lobby. The thing that I find so disturbing about the gun culture in the US is that it is something that was relatively recently invented and perpetuated by the gun industry's lobby, which prioritizes increasing and maximizing gun sales over safety. Their lobbying record is proof of that. But most gun nuts I talk to have no awareness of that fact, or are just willfully blind to it. Instead of acknowledging that our gun laws need to be tightened up, they just go on talking about how any increased regulation is nothing less than a ploy by liberal gun grabbers who are going to get us all killed by disarming us.You DO understand that no matter how great the restrictions placed on our Second Amendment rights, the anti-gun lobby will not be satisfied until all guns are banned, period, right? We're talking BEYOND an Australian-style "turn them all in" type of gun control law. And while you seem to assume that the indignation against "tightening up" our gun laws is merely a result of the "gun industry's lobby", you're missing one "minor" fact...the NRA's political clout doesn't come from gun manufacturers, it comes from the fact that millions of Americans are "single issue voters" on the gun control issue.Your position reminds me of this quote:"First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out-Because I was not a Socialist.Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out-Because I was not a Trade Unionist.Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out-Because I was not a Jew.Then they came for me-and there was no one left to speak for me."With that in mind: Fark you, Buddy...I don't care how many guns you own. Your hypocrisy makes you worse than the hard-core "guns are evil, period, and nobody who isn't a government employee should ever have access to them" folks. THEY at least have the balls to live up to their ideals and actually live with all of the implications of their positio ...
Elzar: Ima let you gun nuts finish jacking, but what if you are seated with your family at your fave Chick-fil-a and 5 black men open the door and walk in with AK-47s. Do you:A) Flip over the table and start trading shotsB) shrug your shoulders and begrudge them their god givn rights to open carryC) slink out the back while speed dialing the po po
lack of warmth: boinkingbill: This is an excellent way to keep guns out of one's store. Just look at how well the "Drug Fee Zone" signs at schools have worked. Actually, they should start putting signs at the entrances of high rise building saying: "No jumping from roof top". I bet that would get rid of a lot of bad DNA.Pretty much. The type person you don't want carrying a gun into that store, will still be carrying the same gun into that store, just as illegally as before. It's the responsible gun owners that will comply.
feckingmorons: I don't go to businesses that have no gun signs. I usually carry a gun.I do go to the post office, but I can secure my gun in a locked compartment in my car. Few violent crimes in the Post Office, lots of violent crimes in stores and gas stations, and restaurants.Businesses are free to make any rules regarding guns they wish. There are always other options for me.I guess I'm a gun totin' zealot, but if I'm ever shot at again I want to be able to shoot back.
