Simple enough: "When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns". Get em away from the bad guys and you can have mine. Oh, and that militia thingy? That's for protecting us from tyranny, as you know. A lot can be said in fewer words....

I was married once to someone who basically spoke pretty much as this blog was written, all in CAPS, and soaked in exclamation marks!!!!! I used to say, "I hear you please calm it down some." But Emotional anger has a way of revealing itself with basic typos, FULL METAL JACKET reverse rhetoric, and content that is basically the mirror reverse of what the author truly believes. These folks, who cannot determine what is a human being and what is not, ought to place in their yards a sign reading , "WE IN THIS HOME, OWN NO WEAPONS, WANT NO WEAPONS, AND WILL HAVE NO WEAPONS." That should be their yard sign. Why this demonstrably false commitment to the sweet goodness of humanity, and faith in human beings? Keep in mind these folks generally displace God, deny sin, re-define evil, all while having no ultimate ground by which to justify evil's existence. So of course they will worship the creature rather then the creator. It is this semi deification of humanity that has been shown to be blatantly false down through history. But these silly folks keep on singing their song that man is sovereign, and now they have a king of their own named Obama, and they are rightly maddened that the NRA has shown him to be naked with no clothes.

To these folks, the elimination of crime, violence, etc... is found in the removal of guns. Much like outlawing haunted houses because they cause fear, corvettes because they cause high speed collisions,bikinis because they provoke rape, forks for causing obesity, and 15 round clips because they cause shooting. These folks live to attack the symptom rather than the disease because they don't believe in the disease, they believe in the symptoms. Nevertheless,
I FOUND THE BLOG REFRESHING, IT TOOK ME BACK TO WHEN I WAS MARRIED TO SOMEONE WHO ALSO LOVED CAPS!!!!!!!!
Calm down honey.

What about my Thompson Curt? Should I have the right to own one? I think it would be an extremely useful weapon for close-quarters self defense.
Randy, I don't believe weapons cause crime and violence, but I do believe they make it much easier for the perpetrators to pursue their goals. And in reference to treating the symptom, while attempting to eradicate disease people in the medical profession still do treat symptoms to try and help those suffering from the disease. When I contracted Dengue Fever while serving in the Peace Corps, I was very happy to be able to at least treat the symptoms.

Curt

Of course you should be able to have a Thompson. Pass a background check and shoot away! Why is it the gun denial advocates want to take guns away from the GOOD guys but never have a plan to get em away from the BAD guys? And seems to me the good guys need those armor piercing thingys now that Homeland Security has over 1.4 billion rounds of hollow point bullets ordered! Why is that you think? Any thoughts?

Roger German

Curt...you really believe we should be carrying Thompson submachine guns...?

Curt

I didn't say that. I said you should be able to have one if you want one. That's way different. Given all five of the last firearm mass murderers were all Progressive Democrats or from Progressive Democratic families, maybe we should look at that connection. Weird, eh? Maybe it's not just radical Conservatives clinging to their guns!

And again, how about them DHS bullet purchases? Any answers? Maybe we SHOULD all have Thompsons!

Why dont liberals just give everyone the right to choose? They have a fervor to extend that right to abort an infant. The crossover is in the subtle assumption made by Roger, one I would have made too, but that possessing the right to own one, does not translate into the axiom that we must own one. There is the amendment in action. The right is/should be there, and only Democrats have ever sought to tamper with the 2nd. But if Rog believes, ie has faith that the presence of guns make it easier to kill or maim, why not find that same connection with alcohol? Its blind faith to assume a causal connection with the mechanical gun, and actual violence. There is much more than just blind faith as verification for the direct causal connection between booze and death on the roads and elsewhere.

Curt

No answers from anyone yet on why OUR Department of Homeland Security has ordered over One billion rounds of hollow point and sniper related ammo. Doesn't that just beg for an answer? Even the DHS spokesperson gave two different answers, and then went silent. Come on! Get that Tommy now Roger!

Roger German

Curt; I can't find a credible news source for the billion plus bullet purchase; shows up on Infowars blog, Americanthinker blog, but doesn't reference where the info comes from. Snopes pans it, There was a purchase with paperwork for Special Forces, but again, I have no idea how much ammo the military buys, when or why. I would actually like to know that, because I would not prefer that we support all the gun/ammo manufacturers to that degree...and it seems you agree with me. Alt-Market.com did a pretty good job of breaking down ammunition purchases over the last 8 years, starting with Bush's inception of Homeland Security. The orders it shows reflect the contracts being written as up-to a certain number of rounds, but not necessarily purchased rounds, as they were written during Bush's term too. Luckily for me, I saw no Thompson rounds begin purchased, so I should be OK...that is, when I finally am able to get my Tommy...

Curt

First of all, a little research on Snopes would show that THEY need to be panned. And they panned SSA and NOAA purchases, not DHS. The purchase by DHS is a given. Many articles and no denials by DHS. Our military uses about 70 million rounds per year in Iraq and Afghanistan. A billion rounds is just crazy. It's about the money, eh? Maybe it is about buying up all the bullets...
