Sandy Hook is on you, you f*king coward, you and people like you.
We are going to lock up your toys and if you can't keep them away from our children, we are going to take them away.
Then you are going to die. And not by my hand. You are one of the worse typewriter warriors on TOPIX. America is a big place. Stick to your own depraved areas. You know. The ones you destroyed and hold down your selves and then suck the life out of others to keep paying for. And "take the country back' is not a white thing. It means living with some level of responsibility.

Gosh, I can't sleep at night for fear that you should suddenly appear on my doorstep.

I keep my pants zippered up at night lest you are able to sneak in at night past the dogs.

I'd hate to be drained of all my bodily fluids...

Tell me what I make up. Tell me what I can't back up. Tell me what I write that is so nasty to you, except a little liberty in giving you a little back to the garbage you write? One other thing though. Do you have several names on this sight? Are you a shill? Do you work for someone to post these new world order messages? And I do not believe that a male can write like you do. You pass yourself off as an older african american male by just the banter we had. So you are either female or gay or confused. No insults implied.

The poster I was answering said automatic rifles were banned.
They are not.
Any fully automatic rifle registered before May 19, 1986 ,the M16 for example, is not banned for civilian ownership and as I mentioned previously there are about 125,000 in the hands of private citizens,

Didn't they already do that when they removed the blood and injected the formaldehyde and then put you in a new suit?

Of course, not implied.

Implied means to indicate or suggest without being explicitly stated.

You did that.

You keep working on your GED, hon.

I have yet to hear any lucid justification for civilians having access to assault weapons.

You must have spent an hour studying my post so you could write that garbage. Barefoot, my posts are not based on lawyer disecting of every word. Having experienced liars and bullchitt artists my life, i know who does the talk and who does the walk. You post to much and let your guard down. you speak like to many others or you put cracks in your various names. Don't take word like 99% so serious. I write that because of the whole 99% issue several months back. My interest is in direction that leads to that 99%. I know not everybody thinks identical in all issues. Here is my views made easy. Cut corruption, stealing and thievery. From rich to poor. Know that there are good, and bad and evil men and women. And that they can be found in any group of people. Unfortunately, we have been convinced or forced upon us that some groups have no evil. Or very little. And that in all the groups, they can be generalized or specific. We can cut several hundred billion dollars a year or save that much from our federal budget or the consumer on corruption issues. But for some reason, our politicians do not do this. This would buy us some time to deal with our issues and cause real growth while the ones stealing would be the losers. Most of this is because we believe we are owed as a people and there is no wrong in doing these things. Which is because the bar on our values/morals/etc./whatever you want to call it is close to the gutter. You need to cut down on your posts though. Insulting and threatening everyone is a national disease now. Hence people are purchasing weapons for defense. You are the sorest winners in human history.

An hour, you say?

So you aren't very good at math, either.

And I am pretty sure of the one thing you are good at...

PS: in the last hour, I framed in a wall, did a load of laundry, and charged the battery on the truck.

Anything else, dear?

Oh SWEETIE: I don't take any of your numbers seriously.

Maybe you should let me know when you plan to back up a number before you post it so I can pay attention?

Americans have always been a little gun crazy. The internet is a runaway fright train.....and look, you can download and build weapons.....nice! Don't look now but, your doctor and teachers will ask, "Do you own any weapons?" A 2nd Amendment wrong. Just smile and say, "Mind your own business" that's the 1st Amendment at your service! When cops call, the 5th will solve it!And, if all else fails, lie like a politician!
