Typical, flamboyant, redneck gun owners.
With all due respect MrsTeresa,
You came here and started the debate with thinly disguised, but obvious, and intentional insults. What did you expect to get in return?
Did you come here seeking an honest and open debate?
Or did you come here merely to attack us, so that when you received retaliation to YOUR insults, you could stand there and and say "See, I knew they were a bunch of so-and-so gun owners?"
I suspect you found what you came for.
I am a study of Human interaction/communication. It is very rare for people not to respond defensively and offensively when they are attacked, which is what you did when you came here.
If you truly seek an honest exchange of ideas, an apology would be in order. Then you could get honest answers to your questions.
You fired the first shot so to speak.
I am trying very hard to give you the benefit of doubt, maybe you just don't communicate your intentions well. It is a common problem that many people have that leads to more trouble and misunderstanding, than our real differences cause.
If you came here only for a fight, then I've merely wasted my time and yours. If that is the case, just leave. You don't need to carry around all the anger that boils up in you from thinking about these things, and trading insults with us.
