so, you know how the nra was saying the only thing to stop a bad guy with a gun was a good guy with a gun? seems the reason we need all those good guys is because the nra is fighting so hard to keep guns in the hands of bad guys. like, say, men who have protective orders against them - which (thanks to the nra) does not actually mean they have to do anything like surrender the guns they have used to threaten people with.

thanks, nra!

well how can a good guy with a gun stop a bad guy with a gun if the bad guy doesn't have a gun?

i mean what if the bad guys in Boondock Saints didn't have guns? then there would be no gunfights and we wouldn't have Willem Defoe flailing around shrieking "THERE WAS A FIREFIGHT" because there would have been no firefight

do you want a world like that, mousie? do you want a world where we can't have action movies in real life?

ergo ipso facto e pluribus unum guns for everyone

also @kenshiro lol man if you want to not be made fun of for your contradictory insane social/political views you should probably try expressing them in something other than vacuous trivialities

I don't think we should give them a state. I think they deserve something more along the lines of 1800's style treatment of Native Americans. Something like a reservation in a Utah salt flat. I would love to see how they would "get along" with some of the more extreme Mormon sects.

The state of non-being, would be my vote. As for real estate, though... I hear there's a goodly-sized patch of ground on the Ukraine-Belarus border, just a ways NNW of Kiev, that neither nation really wants to do much with...

Some pretty trees, there, from what I understand. And one can hear the wolves singing at night. Oh, and, there are some truly immense catfish in some of the containment ponds! A fine, rich, rewarding place for those who devote themselves so selflessly to spreading the gospel and to ministering to God's children in such a kindly way.

Intolerance is a good thing, and only the silliest of cultural relativist / isolationist types are not morally mature enough to understand that on some level. I just described an excellent example: a nation that has a bunch of self-proclaimed "rights" that nobody else on earth has any need to tolerate, and they should instead have those rights abjured from them, subject to military intervention, organized economic sanction, and blockade.

Would you really argue otherwise?

Colorado's governor has announced that he will sign their mag-ban bill. Magpul has already confirmed they will be leaving the state post haste.

Also, espousing tolerance is condescending and patronizing: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IpNRw7snmGM

http://www.politico.com/story/2013/03/assault-weapon-ban-for-gun-control-loses-steam-89046.html

Feinstein's assault weapons ban will not be advanced as its own bill, though it could be added as an amendment to a different bill. There are also several other bills still floating around Congress at various stages, but that was the big, showy one.

Oh, and just in case anyone hasn't seen it, here's Senator Feinstein asserting that it's legal to hunt humans: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ypHaYAv_EEw It just makes me laugh.

I think you perhaps have mistaken her claim and its message.

Okay, I'll bite: what did she mean when she said, "it's legal to hunt humans?"
