I like how that quaint little psycho tried to sell the age old liberal fallacy that police "protect us".

What a load of crap.

Pretty much every liberal and conservative I know supports guns and the second amendment. It is one of the few things they agree on. Washington State is mostly liberal, but we will continue to keep our ALL of our guns. A police officer is to heavy to carry around with me so I carry a gun instead. How do you think the police will protect me anyway? WITH A GUN!!! It is impossible for the police to get to your house in time when your life is in danger.
And who cares if fully automatics are for sporting purpose or not. The second amendment has nothing to do with sporting purposes. Plus fully automatic machine guns were already banned in 1986 by the Hughes Amendment. Didn't you already know that? I don't agree with it and think it should be repealed, but they are already banned and the few pre-1986 legal ones out there cost more money than the average person can afford because they are so rare. Can you even name a single incident where a "LEGALLY" owned machine gun was used in a crime or murder?
Sharon is apparently a progressive, not a liberal.

Liberals believe we might be executing too many people in the U.S.

Progressives are certain Stalin did not execute enough people in the U.S.S.R.

Say what you want, at least they aren't traitors.
Democrats aren't what you think, but that's the way they want it.

If you can see past your treason (and I am not talking about the gun issue) you'll see that your goals are counter to what this country was founded on. Again, I am not speaking of the gun issue, I am speaking of basic constitutional rights which you want to crush.

So....piss off?

DemocRATs are the worst enemies of freedom!!! They are much worse communists and NAZI. They are not only destroying freedom but at the same time promoting misery and despair and trying to drive everything into stone age. Look at Massachusetts with shrinking population - direct result of democRATic rule for half a century. But people here loves it and keep voting for these destructive creatures. So it serves them right. They deserve it. Where is the "change" they screaming screaming about? Hard to imagine more reactionary and brain dead people than here!

So your brother and your son were not "men", since they use guns instead of pepper spray.

A quote from the man sitting in the wheelchair...
"It is not a loss of freedom. It's a measure to protect it.[on gun control]" James Brady
And from his wife...
"The gun lobby finds waiting periods inconvenient. You have only to ask my husband how inconvenient he finds his wheelchair from time to time." Sarah Brady
And tell all the families who have buried innocent children shot by guns....I'm sure they would give you an earful!
Where was James Brady shot?

Was it not Washington, D.C.?

But handguns were banned there at the time?

The report of Ronald Reagan and James Brady getting shot must be a hoax! How could it have happened? Handguns were illegal in D.C.!

The same Sarah Brady that illegally bought a gun for her son.
No one ever bothered to ask the bitch that if gun control keeps people from getting shot, how her husband got shot in Washington, D.C., where handguns are banned.

Oh please.

Of course the police protect us.

You know in my last post I was not attacking you and instead of any type of reasonable discourse from you, there was nothing but pure hatred and venom for no other reason then the fact that I choose (there is a word for you to look up, it is one thing that being free is about, but you wouldn't understand that) to not be a helpless victim. So I choose (there's that word again) to carry a firearm.

Let me let you in on a little secret, more people are injured with knives and other edged weapons then with firearms.

Regardless of what type of weapon a criminal has, the absolute best tool is a firearm.(oh my gosh that cant be true) Mace/OC spray is not very effective and then you have the probability of cross contamination. Martial arts or going empty hand against a weapon is the absolute last thing you should even consider trying to do unless you dont mind getting hurt (very little or very severe is a flip of the coin) or there is absolutely no option.

There is a reason police carry firearms.(could it be that they have the right to self defense as well) Oh and btw, myself and others have pointed out to you that the police are not everywhere and have no duty to protect, so how do you figure a cop is the answer for anyones defense?

You keep trying to claim some type of knowledge or experiance as supposedly your brother was a cop and supposedly your son is in the army, in this way you try to lay claim to some type of knowledge of which you actually have none.
So I can assume once your supposed son is out of the supposed army then he will be a criminal vigilante if he even looks at a gun?
The questions begs to ask what education do you have regarding firearms and defense, as well as do you believe everything you see on tv?

Also where does being the 'man' come into this other then your apparent infatuation with the male genitalia?

BTW I know several women who refuse to be victims and carry firearms for self defense. Are they to be criticized as they wish to have a way to defend themselves from a criminal?

I pity you, you are a very selfish, bitter and unfulfilled person....

AND as for our constitution which was written in the 1700's....it was meant for militias.
No Sharon, it wasn't...
Rather than explore the leftist views of gun control, you need to read about the reasoning of the founding fathers as to WHY they felt that the 2nd amendment was important.

You also need to research the rise in violent crime in your Australia example. NOT just violence with guns. There has been a steady rise in violent crime in Australia since the 1996 Gun Laws were put into affect.

Don't take my word for it, research it..

Truth matters..

As far as vigilante justice, it is a misconception perpetuated on us ALL that ONLY government agents can enforce the law..

Show me in our founding documents where it says we have NO POWER over the criminal element in our midst. That we MUST rely on government to solve those problems for us..

We have become a society that turns it's back on our fellow man because we can't "get involved"..

I say "NO" my friends..

That getting involved is not only our right, but our duty to both our country as well as our fellow man..

That we've allowed ourselves to be cowed by unconstitutional controls is a slap to our founding fathers, our constitution, and our freedoms...

A gun is a threat as long as it can kill or maim someone....more guns that the average citizen owns get lost or stolen and then get into the hands of the criminals.....I guess you like to help them out...maybe you should go outside and play cowboys...with Georgie...or better yet Dick Cheney....he likes to drink and hunt and shoot his friends in the face!
I have been polite to you but if you want to use your childish arrogant insecure idiosyncrasies to describe your state of mind then I shall return the dialogue in favor. You have an ignorant point of understanding and have not and will not learn what it is you talk about. If you remove all that can harm then our society would come to a halt. Bad stuff happens all the time and we go on. Bad stuff will always happen there is not much you can do about it. If you are afraid of guns then stay away from them. If you want to be a hypocrite and only attack guns and not anything else that harms people then go and hide and stay away from society.

I do not know what happen to you to force you to have this phobia, but whatever it was I am sorry.
