Does your sig assume alien life form who has the capability to travel the cosmos is somehow stupid? I am sure they would understand the economic argument.

Hi apples!

Hello oranges!

On one hand we have a person's decision regarding their own body; on the other we have an objection to a system of punishment that hasn't demonstrated itself to be cost effective or an effective deterrent.

What may really confuse the aliens: those who don't want any abortions at all, also don't support providing funds to adequately care for these same (unwanted) children.

Let me guess. False flag?

How about that revolution? Awaits JJ and NFRS.

And civilian at walmart was CCW. There goes the good guy gun theory.

And the shooters were at the Bundy ranch. Anyone surprised?

The good guy gun theory isnt my logic. It comes from your side of the spectrum.

Cops with guns is also part of the good guy gun theory. Thus, if you are dismissing the fact that good guys with guns can stop bad guys, you are also dismissing the fact that good guy cops with guns can stop bad guys.

You're also dismissing all of the actual occurrences where good guys with guns have stopped bad guys (both cops and non-cop good guys), thus making your previous "assertion" not only ridiculous, but either misinformed or ignorant.

I mean they're waiting for you to get the revolution started. If all of you just wait for a text/email alert, it'll never happen. But then again, that's probably for the best. Right?

Those are both interesting if they're facts actually, though not exactly telling.

Look, we don't deal in absolutes as gun owners. Just because we carry a gun doesn't mean that it will always save our lives or that we'll be able to access it in time to defend ourselves. What we do deal in is probability. Does having the gun give us a much higher probablily of survival should a gunman attack us? Yes, it does.

I dont know the specifics of this case. But no one has precognition. If I was just minding my own business and was walking out of Walmart and some guy came in and immediately shot me, there's nothing I can do. I bet the guy never saw it coming.

As for the bundy reference, that's more interesting if true. But let's not kid ourselves...that incident was a magnet for anarchists and revolutionaries, regardless of what the original intent of the protests were. People who had never even lived there or known about the place just started showing up to stand up against the government. The fact they were there isnt really indicative of much.

Response to be expected.

And of course there's a media assault on the firearm industry and gun owners. Most of what the media comes up with is bs anyway, but people eat it up. They've managed to convince people that gun owners have small penises, are scared of everything, that the gun industry has convinced owners that death is always around the corner and has turned us into paranoid people who are cowards, and that we're all ready to snap and kill everyone in sight.

It's all crap. I carry a gun based on the odds and because I recognize danger. I'm not compensating for anything, nor am I a coward. Most of my guns I bought because they're fun/cool to me. They don't threaten to kill people daily, weekly, or ever. And neither do I appear ready to snap.

But if the grabbers and the media can't change the laws, they try and change the perception of guns and owners of them to stigmatize it in some way. Ive felt under attack for years now. I've learned to just brush that off my shoulders and move on.
