re: Anti-gun news anchor gets owned by gun advocate...


How do you do stats for a crime that was not commited because the almost victim had a gun? It has happened to me before. A couple of thugs approached me with bad intentions, I let them know I was not a harmless sheep and would not go quietly in the night. They decided that to move on. I reported it, but no crime happened. The officers looked for them. I protected my wife and myself.

So we shouldn't allow our government to have these things, if we can't.


Complete and total disarmament of every person and country. In that case everyone will become completely peaceful/enlightened. All inborn aggression and hostility will magically go away...

This is what we would likely revert back to:








I guess we ban femurs at that point....


Let me break it down for the head in the sand crowd:

Man is inherently evil.

We will never be able to regulate/legislate this fact. Embrace this fact. Be vigilant in all aspects of your life and look upon things with healthy skepticism.

Why, he hasn't acted irresponsible. Just because you don't understand the reasons he enjoys these weapons or feels safer by owning them doesn't mean he shouldn't. Nobody is asking you to buy one.



I said HOPE that is what happens because that is ALL I want to happen. Something is GOING to happen. He can have one. And I also stated that he should be left alone since he already owns one.

WOW...jus WOW. It is clear by your remarks that you really are ignorant when it comes to weapons. Why is an AR-15 bad? All guns kill people, can you point me to the ones designed just to wound people or animals?


you don't know a damned thing about me or my experience with weapons. I can't understand the resistance to it being more difficult to own one of these weapons. And by difficult I mean a more thorough background check. Family check?

That is my position. If you want the luxury of shooting an AR-15 or similar it should be a luxury.


It is already a luxury. It isn't free and not everyone can afford it ergo it is a luxury. Who gets to determine at what level the luxury starts? The same people who get to determine when to stop taxing me? No thanks!

Technically, it is not illegal to own a fully automatic weapon "if" you can afford it and go through the proper licensing. Therefore there are already full-auto weapons in the population. When was the last time there was a mass shooting in the US where a legally owned full-auto weapon was the weapon used?

I wish the Taliban whom we've been at war with for over ten years would realize this. Why don't you go over to Afghanistan and tell them this.

Lots of small scale gang shoot outs could be full on urban warfare without these laws.
Hey moron, do you know how easily it is to convert/modify an AK to full auto? You need to STFU since you are obviously ignorant about guns, the Second Amendment, and freedom. Move to France you pussy.

Then enlighten us so we know just how steeped you are in the use of firearms that you know first-hand what you are talking about. The other problem is...you are trusting the gov't to a fault and at your own peril. This is the camel's nose entering the tent. If they succeed with this, it will be a persistent babystep drip drip drip to encroach further on our constitutionally protected rights because too many folks on the left view the constitution as "your little book".

Tin foil hat thinking in my opinion. This ridiculous fear that they are going to try and take everything. To suggest such is political suicide. These guys are interested in keeping their jobs. And they KNOW if they push harder than they have they are gone. Public opinion polls I keep hearing are only 54% for gun reform. Not exactly a landslide.

This is the START of a national debate. And the lines have been drawn in the sand. I think (thankfully) the left was pretty mild in what they asked for.

Comments like "you are a dipshit", "come and get it", and "from my cold dead fingers" are the type of ignorant stances that may cost you this debate.

I think we can remove "nukes" from the weapons choices if the gov't wanted to oppress its own people. It'd be like the noob in COD who shoots a rocker launcher at point blank.

Since the idea of a warring government is now what we arms bearing citizens are apparently up against, lets compare to how awesomely fun of a time our troops have been having in the Middle East against folks who don't have planes and drones and tanks.

People with guns can be a bitch to oppress.

I'm no alter dude. I'm a 20+year active duty member of the USAF. I've been in combat zones and am a qualified expert in both long rifle and handgun small arms. I took an oath to support and defend the constitution of the US. The 2d Amendment says what it says and is NOT irrelevent because the gov't gives you a warm fuzzy. Your turn--what are your credentials genius?

You're entitled to your opinion but think critically and question everything and I am entitled to point out where I "think" you're wrong. Again entitled to my opinion (see 1st Amendment). Don't take anything a politician says at face value. Did I say they would take everything? NO--and they don't have to. They only have to take certain peices of the constitution and then they take just enough to turn us into some hybrid of say East and West Germany. We are not Europe. We are on a slippery slope and if you think this place can't turn despotic you're fooling yourself. Man is not perfect and the founders knew the nature of man. The centralization of power has been happening for decades and has recently accelerated and if they get amnesty for illegals on top of the already permanent voter block from those on the gubmmint teet, it is over. There will be a permanent elitist left oligarchy with a very weakened counterbalance. It could happen. Will it happen in our lifetime? Perhaps not but it could and the founders guaranteed us a right in the event we had to go down that road again...God forbid.

I have not called you names or said "come and get it" or "my cold dead hands". That is hollow rhetoric blustering. I support and defend the constitution and have actually read it and have read background behind it such as federalist papers, anti-federalist papers and a few other books about the debates of the founders while they were crafting it--in their own words. The constitution almost did not get ratified by the states and ultimately got ratified only AFTER the Bill of Rights were amended into the US Constitution which included the right to bear arms and it wasn't so you can hunt.

So...what happens when the next Sandy Hook incident occurs with a 12ga Remington 870 Express or a .357 revolver with speed reloading? The same irrational emotional argument will be made that we must further diminish the rights of 330 million people to not actually prevent anything. The real debate here is mentally ill or mentally handicapped and firearms. Those who have the inability to control or understand a firearm or to associate the danger a firearm carries with it cannot be trusted to own, have access to or operate a firearm. It is the only common ground with me.

Educated estimates show that around 1000 death last year were criminals who were shot in self defense. Compare this to the 32k+ deaths that were a result of gun related suicides/homicides last year.



I think the solution is more guns. Your numbers could be reversed if more people had guns. If the 32k victims were armed, do you think they may have been able to protect themselves. I hope you do not thinks laws would have, there is already a homicide ban in this country.
