You clearly do not understand the words you have tried to qoute.

If you had any feelings for your loved ones, you would not have made this mistake.

You tell Dan your not interested in his life story, yet previously you said you were keen to know mine,,,,you little tease.

I have clearly on many occassions( which you dumb arses fail to comprehend) stated my unbiased point of view but you morons go on the defensive because you can't justify your reasons each time another masacre occurs or another murder or accident as the result of a gun or guns (and I actually thought that you, at least understood that,)
Why wouldn't people go on the defensive?
You're trying to justify taking everyone's guns away just because a froot loop goes crazy while in control of a gun, or there's an accident involving a gun.
Using that logic you must be campaigning hard to remove everything from society that has killed someone or someone has had an accident with, good luck with that.

Why should law abiding people who do the right thing have their guns removed when they aren't the cause of any problems?

For supposedly being sixty she's uneducated.
She assumes having the liberty to own guns heightens the murder rate among neighbors and will make one in four of us shoot the postman because he delivered the Christmas cards a day late.
She's an idiot. LOL!!!
All she advertises is that she has some enraged disdain for those of us with guns with no real specifics as to why outside of baseless claims.
Hell,,, I thought I was taking the piss out of a teenager.

I am thinking bob 2 bob. Or some acquaintance. The dogged ignorance is different, bob at least would try to post references, and sometimes had good, but flawed arguments (in my opinion of course, bob disagreed). but this little pissant takes the cake. Ahs no ability to see or acknowledge evidence right in front of her.

Reminds me of the preachers at Salem that saw witches everywhere, without ever having evidence of any.

I now suspect an associate, perhaps a fringe nut who was around then.

Bob was never that dismally stupid. Or willfully ignorant. I have never met someone so afraid of facts.

Wait, some of the religious nuts I used to work with were like that.

Anyway, I may have to withdraw the bob accusation. She it is way to stupid to be bob2bob.

She makes bunny look good.

I am not wanting guns taken away because one froot loop went crazy, there were many incidents where people have used gun after they have lost the plot and I am saying judging from the ammount of you loonies on this site that there are many more of you out there...it's just a matter of time before another one of you looses your shit and inocent people will die at the end of a gun barrel, what are the chances of that do you think?
