So you want to equate death and injuries to a disease. On this we can agree. Guns, like diarrhea are a disease, in America. All so the small, insecure American male can feel potent and powerful.
A disease. I think you're right.
You have a disease called liberalism, known medically as Cranial Diarrhea. The promulgation of Liberalism is the cause of our current social ills.

For most of US history, Americans had broad gun rights.
That's false. Until recently, individual gun rights were severely restricted with NRA support.

How do you equate driving a car, a necessity in America, with a recreational "sport"? Get real, will ya?
You can take public transit.

What you call a "sport," the Founders call a "Right." The Founders were a lot smarter tha you.

Just a few more facts, StT,
89 Americans killed by automobiles every day.
40 of those 89 Americans were killed by automobiles where alcohol was involved.
205 Americans killed by alcohol abuse every day.
1214 Americans killed by tobacco use every day. 134 of those Americans were not smokers but were killed by second hand smoke.
2150 unborn Americans killed every day for convenience.
These figures far exceed the deaths caused by guns yet the libs don't want to talk about these.
I saw the same stats, Pitt. Funny how hypocritical Libs are, noting the latter statistic.

I take it you have a parallel opinion of all those others who may feel insecure - small-framed women living alone and working the night shift, frail elderly folks living in what has become a high-crime neighborhood, minorities, etc...

Your sneering post reeks of superiority, dissing the mere idea that anyone having valid reasons for feeling insecure and wanting to avail themselves of every American's Right to keep and bear arms in self-defense is somehow merely acting out your cartoon fantasies of male penis envy - just so you can sneer at them and feel yourself superior.

Pretty childish, joe. You need to give this issue more serious thought with your mind rather than with whatever other part of your anatomy you're currently thinking about it with. Take some time.

I'd be interested in seeing whatever authoritative evidence you may have that backs up this interesting claim.

I don't care what you're interested in. Not in the least. You were one of those Rovian predictors of the election, weren't you?

You continually prove that you don't know wtf your talking about. So cut the teeny bopper sarcasm and look it up yourself. My postings are for the well read, those who already know the recent origins of the NRA's latest stance on the 2nd amendment.

Yeah - I predicted Romney was 1:3 odds-against winning.

I continually back up what I post with attributed sources you are then free to accept or refute.

I am not your RA. You post a claim - you back it up with authoritative sources. Or you are just posting rubbish. As is so far shown to be the case here. Your smarmy references to "the well read" (meaning, one supposes, fellow denizens of your little ideological echo chamber, well-read in HuffPo and Daily KOS) are a joke.

Put up or shut up, kid.

What bs, you never back anything up. It's always the same old bleating sarcasm and bitter loser carping from you. You and all the rest of you oldies are done for, over. You've got nothing to contribute, and you don't have a clue that you're done for.

Please, don't be intentionally obtuse. No one believes, nor is anyone saying, that stricter and more restrictive laws will stop all violence. But it will surely lower the incidence. Otherwise, all you're doing is stooging for the gun manufacturers. More violence in the form of arming more people is stupid.
Besides, people will eventually decide that the carnage is not worth the "fun" of guns. Why should innocent people be required to die so that you can shoot squirrels or little paper targets?
I think you are wrong for the reasons I've already stated. You think I'm obstuse? Fine. I find you to be naive.

So, you picked on the car stat but totally ignored the second hand smoke part that kills way more Americans every year than do guns. Come on. Let's see your outrage and indignation over smoking. You want to ban guns so you should also want to ban smoking since it is by far more dangerous than guns.

I agree that there needs to be some sort of gun laws. For example, a simple trigger lock would have kept the latest whacko from having been able to create the carnage that he did in Newtown. Guns are a constitutionally guaranteed right but just as with all other rights, it comes with responsibility. I own several guns and they all have trigger locks on them. I am the only one who knows the combination to the locks. The perps mother paid the ultimate price for her irresponsibility to secure her guns. Training and securing are things I can support but violating the Constitution by banning, I cannot.

I see. So the claim you made that Americans' 2A rights to keep & bear arms were very restricted - with the NRA's active support - until recently is without any basis. Rubbish, in other words.

Check - glad we could get that cleared up.

Now, let's review here. I responded to your original post by noting your claim was interesting & asking you very simply, politely & respectfully if you could share whatever authoritative basis you had for making it - out of sincere interest.

You went straight to Defcon 5 in your response, which was essentially "f*&ck off, azzwhole." Real mature.

Now you're having a petulant melt-down - revealing yourself as just another angry smart-assed little kid who knows it all, long on smarts and short on wisdom, who hates "oldies." Kick Grandma to the curb.

But that's ok - most of us were there once also. Most of us eventually grew out if it.
