Re: GCN: Gun Control Now
A few folks here are responding a bit over emotional, and even spouting some sort of idea that it would be thrilling to 'kill an intruder' and such....
That is not the mantra of the average person on this forum.
It is interesting to me that Ms. T is only posting replies that focus on that very small minority, but has made NO responses to the factual data, the reasonable responses, or the answers to her actual question of 'why do you feel the need to defend your rights'
As often, folks of 'her' mental state, reason, logic, and self defense mean nothing, only the indocturnation of left wing gun haters.
Perhaps she or anyone that she knows have never been unfortunate enough to be in a situation where their life was in danger from a meth/coke/drink/ or just plain crazy person. Or perhaps she spends all of her time listening to the preachings of her anti-gun buddies, rather than seeing how many home invasions happen every day, or senseless 4+ to one beatdowns happen on a regular basis.
Would I shoot someone for stealing my car....not likely. Would I shoot someone who was crashing into my home and likely to do me, my wife, my children harm. You better beleive it.
It's a wet dream scenario that you can 'run away'. But tell that to the dead people who are victims of the 'illegal' drug addicts who rob, kill, and maime for any chance of getting fifty bucks to buy their next fix.
yea yea, I'm sure that never happens.....it's just gun hugging retoric....get a clue.
You say the 'getting rid of guns', AKA making them illegal, would solve all violent crime. Well then. Terrific! Wait...isn't violent crime already illegal? so how is it that we have violent crime...hmmm..i must be missing something here.
Wanna call me a redneck. Fine. Wanna call me a gun nut. Fine. Call me anything you want, but stay the heck outta my house, get a job, keep your hands off my family. Don't like guns, fine, don't buy one. Don't try to control EVERYONE else from having something you don't beleive in.
Go to the gym, run every day, be happy in your sense of security that you will always be "able to get away from an attacker".
I wish you no harm, but I'm not a criminal.
Making guns illegal......that's a joke. Look how well it worked for alchohol, meth, cocaine, heroin, immigration, drunk driving......the list goes on.
End of rant....I'm sure it did no good
Freedom is never more than one generation away from extinction. We didn't pass it on to our children in the bloodstream.
It must be fought for, protected, and handed on for them to do the same, or one day we will spend our sunset years telling our children and our children’s children what it was once like in the United States where men were free ~Ronald Reagan.
