My perfectly reasonable post in favor of gun control was buried because the gun brigade doesn’t actually tolerate objections. If your argument can’t be countered with the some inane reference to the 2nd amendment… they will bury you.

Max, it’s amazing how foolish people are today. Do you think this generation is the first ever? When people are banned and disarmed Tyranny follows. Its the NATURAL course of events.

I am surprised you think the ‘gun brigade’ buries your post. Perhaps you need to rethink your stance if you are being outweighed by a significant number. Reflect on common sense and not utopia.

I don’t know what generation you think I belong to. But look around the world. There is not tyranny by the government where there is gun control. Its not a natural end to gun control. Its just not.

But what I will say is that the history of no gun control in our country has lead to the highest rate of gun violence in 1st world and much of the 3rd world. In fact the only tyranny going on is the tyranny of the gun lobby and gun owners.

I know that a full 70% of Americans support gun control.

Wow? Really, 70%? The same 70% that have been dumbed down and been educated in ever so great public school system that we are so proud of?
“There is not tyranny where there is gun control???”
I wonder if the Libyans or now the Syrian rebels would beg to differ with you about their so gracious and benevolent dictators Assad and Gaddify…
Tyranny takes many forms friend…
Webster dict. (also a great patriot)
Definition of TYRANNY
1
: oppressive power ; especially : oppressive power exerted by government

Taxes fits into this….

2
a : a government in which absolute power is vested in a single ruler; especially : one characteristic of an ancient Greek city-state

b : the office, authority, and administration of a tyrant

One class, one party rule…communism

3
: a rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force

Hmmmm outlawing and banning items…

4
: an oppressive, harsh, or unjust act : a tyrannical act

Taking my beanie babies away..

And ‘history of no gun control’

holy moses.

There are ‘gun free zones’ EVERYWHERE.. DC, Chicago, NYC…There have been gun control laws in this country… and they’ve failed every time.

And where is gun crime most prevalent?
Yep.

“Tyranny of the gunowners and lobby…”

Wow…. read the definition again.

I know exactly what tyranny means. But we can pick one of yours.

: a rigorous condition imposed by some outside agency or force

We live with threats of violence from gun owners who claim the constitution guarantees them the right to attempt to over throw the U.S. government. Very few of them belong to well regulated militias.

My world and my kids world is more dangerous because you have this strange belief that more ability to commit violence creates less violence.

You pick the percentage. Its well over 50% in any of them.

Look. I know guns. I know them well. You aren’t a better American than I am because you believe in more guns. Here is what I can guarantee you. If all guns were gone we’d have less violent society. That is not in question. You can’t shoot at me and I won’t be shot.

Your statistics are skewed or just wrong.

I don’t think we have anything in common unless you are a weapons expert. You don’t sound like one.

My ability to PROTECT myself makes my kids safer.

” Look. I know guns. I know them well. You aren’t a better American than I am because you believe in more guns. Here is what I can guarantee you. If all guns were gone we’d have less violent society. That is not in question. You can’t shoot at me and I won’t be shot.”

Good for you. But we aren’t talking about Utopia are we? No…We’re talking reality.

“I don’t think we have anything in common unless you are a weapons expert. You don’t sound like one.”
Guess your wrong again… least your consistent.

*shakes head* this is all going to lead to no good. The police are going to come get your guns someday and it will be your fault.

It IS coming to no good Max. Where do you draw the line with Freedom? What is good enough for you to give up on… can you ask me to suffer that?

All you have to do is see what’s happened at the airports. They hardly have well trained staff with the TSA and they commit personal offenses in the name of safety on 3 yo and grandmothers…
Tactically I KNOW that makes some sense. No matter what you believe friend, I am far more experienced than you care to acknowledge..
Back to the point… The TSA bungled up this airport screening based on 19 hijackers causing 3000 deaths.
They were given a mandate and they implemented it.Granny and lil’ sis are subjected to invasive searches… the only ones exempt are the power brokers in DC, etc.

Funny about that. Imagine… them passing laws or regs they don’t have to follow…

My fault my ass.

Dude… Twin Towers were attacked 9-11-2001

TSA formed… 11-19-2001

That is the calibre of all the information you spew.

If you haven’t seen this… when we read what you guys write… it sounds like Alex Jones. I’m serious.


The biggest threat to PM is AJ. That is how it feels when we try to talk about this. Our biggest threat is you. You are willing to act on completely bogus information.

So lump me in with ol’ AJ eh? That was pretty scary to see. I believe he has his opinions, I can’t judge him other than to say he was emotional, and that did not serve him well in that forum.

I am trying to reason with you from a point of sense.. .when 9/11 happened is irrelevant. The facts are the freedoms that WERE present before 9-11-01 are gone.

I used to walk my wife all the way through the terminal and walk her to the gate.
I used to take pictures of planes on approach.The airport we’re close to had a road that passed right by the approach. Used to watch them forever…It was such a popular little turn off the county graded and graveled the turn off. I used to take pictures of buildings and architecture…
I used to run through the mall when I was young dodging and spinning in amongst the crowd…(that actually helped in my football career)
There used to be tobacco smokers every where.. Now the gov’t is wondering where all the tobacco tax money going to come from??
Now that there are more Hybrids people aren’t paying gas tax…. so we gotta tax the hybrids more…
And I’m not EVEN going to say much about the temporary income tax passed to pay for WW1…
Once Gov’t starts its intrusion, it continues until the people say enough. And then they just wait til the anger subsides to continue the march towards ‘utopia.’

Max, I don’t know how to convey my feelings about this issue and the path the country is on. I mean I want you to believe that I am serious, caring, scared, and determined. I am profoundly in love with my country and her liberty. That liberty demands my understanding of the opposition and their tenets.

But it is a reciprocal responsibility. It HAS to be reciprocal. As you said my ‘more guns’ doesn’t make me more American.

Be well.
