    hossenpepper Don't worry. I have a permit!!!

    DiO/TP logic: One Essay = 5 times as president of the most pro-gun propaganda organization.

    When did I ever say I was against guns? Not one single time.

    I am against stupid analogies and mis-characterizations of what SK said in this ONE essay. We haven't even talked about guns. We can't get past how illogical and wrong everything you say is yet.

    Logic evades you. Only in the version you THINK is logic is this BULLSH!T:

    Less extreme than this:

    I deliberately didn't mention SK in that post did I? and as much as you want to believe it, redneck families who are in your face with guns in public places do not typify those who believe we have enough gun laws already.

    As far as Heston holding a musket aloft at an NRA convention...well I don't even follow you there.

    Do you think advocating federal registration of all legally owned firearms is a "moderate" position?

    Do you consider wanting to ban millions of currently legal firearms and millions of currently legal magazines a "moderate" position?

    Do you think believing we have enough gun laws already is an "extreme" position?

    That is big-time ironic. Stephen leans left, yet owns a gun. I'm a conservative, and I don't own one. Life is weird sometimes...!

    To me, it's only weird when we consider that conservative and liberals must cleave to the whole array of stereotypical left and right issues. Which we do.

    I know plenty of liberals whom the NRA in all its paranoia would call "anti-gun" who are all for gun ownership, with appropriate restrictions to lessen the chance of massacre, particularly by people who shouldn't have them.

    I know plenty of conservatives who readily acknowledge the more guns we have, the more bullets are going to fly, and the more people are going to get hurt and would like to slow down the carnage.

    It's not weird. People are just wired in their own individual ways. Sometimes it doesn't seem like it.

    A 12 gauge is not the same as an assault weapon, or am I just confused? Also a gun owner, raised in a gunned-up family.

    Not the same of course. Insert rifle or handgun, same result, you’re not defenseless.

    How do you know? Unless having a gun gives you psychic powers.

    ...his lengthy and honorable career in law enforcement gives him some insight that the rest of us lack.....

    But not psychic powers. As for law enforcement, most of the cops I've worked with are staunchly in favour of gun control and are especially contemptuous of the idea of home defence.

    I guess I’m not understanding your question. Do you mean how do I know if someone is in my house?

    You must know different police officers than I do sir.
