That which you scream and cry for will eventually work back to you. Enjoy your misery.
That might sound like a threat if it wasn't so whiny and ridiculous.

As it is, it just sounds like some little kid crying....:)

those Democrats that came to age in the 1960's that consider themselves the New Left sure think so and think its 1968 again and we need more gun control legislation which has proved to be a failure.

No. There's simply no basis whatever for that claim. Dismissed.

Don't just say so, explain why YOU 'feel' that way.
GOT FACTS?

I'm going to go so far as to say that all YOU'VE got are emotions, hyperbole, and exaggeration.

I didn't say a goddamn thing about "feeling" that way, liar. I'm denying the absurdly false claim.

If you or your fellow p--ck can PROVE it, be my guests. Otherwise, FOAD.

Too funny! I point out that all statistics are not created equal. Your interpretation is that I stated all statistics address the same subject matter.
I can recommend a good reading comprehension tutor for you. Lmao!

He first has to understand what I posted before he can research to prove me wrong.
You are correct in stating he is too lazy to put in the work.
I appreciate your input and back up.

You mean like the way we keep going to the FBI ( http://www.fbi.gov/stats-services/crimestats ) and the ATF ( http://www.justice.gov/oig/reports/ATF/e0707/... ) to disprove the nonsense you post, AnalOriface, and you keep saying that it's in the state table you saw but can't provide a link to?

Not all statistics are equal: The NRA sources are hilarious, e.g., Kleck & company running surveys from subscribers to gun magazines as representative of American opinions.

Of course, there is a list of eight polls and their sources that support the 90 percent figure of Americans who call for universal background checks that gun gnutters can't shake. You whine and cry and deflect all you want but you cannot refute them.

All of you that need to decide about purchasing weapons. Look at the worse areas and then prepare for that. Scripture and secular writings tell you it is several times worse when things collapse. Do not listen to these neophyte insane men and women on these sites if you do not feel safe. Many of you already have defended yourselves from the offspring of these progressive idiots who are on a path to self destruction for the only reason that the speed of their movements must be maintained even if it means your deaths. Defend yourselves. And ph uk them.

As far as stats go, Texas and Florida are below average in shooting deaths and D.C with some of the strictest laws are nearly 3 times the national average of shooting death per 100,000 population.
