‘Gun Appreciation Day’ planned close to inauguration

Jan 7, 2013 Full story: www.washingtonpost.com 50

A collection of conservative and gun rights groups are joining together for a "Gun Appreciation Day" on Jan. 19, two days before President Obama’s second inauguration.

The group is emulating the anti-gay marriage activists who made the Christian fast food chain Chick-fil-A into a national conservative cause with “Chick-fil-A Appreciation Day.” The group is asking supporters to turn out in droves at gun stores, gun counters, gun shows, and gun ranges to protest what they see as government overreach in the wake of the Sandy Hook elementary school shootings.

The Obama team is displaying a shocking lack of sensitivity by choosing to schedule their inauguration celebration only a month after the Sandy Hook elementary school shootings.

The extreme rhetoric from the Left is a knee-jerk projection of their own guilt in fomenting disastrous social policies for four decades. Trying to demonize the rational, responsible and very calm gun owners of America as representative of the crazy loons the Left has fostered is false on its face. All of the horrific shootings experienced, all of the radical attacks on America, have been results of the same Leftist extreme rhetoric encouraging drugs, moral turpitude, cowardice, stagnant spiritual development and widespread evasion of reality. The Left believes they can alter reality, as they do in North Korea. People intent on protecting their basic human rights from Leftist oppressors remain in an unending struggle to reverse the impact of Leftist irrational emotionalism and childish representations.

Not knowing about 'the left,' but we in the center are not providing assault weapions to crazy people and pstols to murderers.

Who is?

Who transmits ALL THESE GUNS to those who misuse them?
Make them co-conspirators to the gun crimes.

Why not a "Gun Appreciation Day" ?
Guns have been used for the good of society.

There are many cases each year of school teachers who sexually molest children or under age teens, but no one balks at Teacher Appreciation Day. Teachers kill more people each year (homocide, drunk driving, etc.) than assault rifles, but that doesn't make all teachers wrong.

Likewise, the vast majority of gun owners, even "assault rifle" owners, are good law abiding people who pose to harm to anyone.

I don't a problem with prosecuting people as co-conspirators if they sell or give guns to people illegally or in cases where they would reasonably expect the person would use it to commit a violent crime. Just like the driver of a car in a drive by shooting should also be charged with the crime.

This is an issue where I part with my fellow liberals. I am a die hard liberal that enjoys shooting sports, hunting and antique firearms. I also own a WW2 M1 carbine which could be classified as an 'assault weapon.' It was the first gun I learned to shoot and I was also taught gun safety. Since I have no criminal intent I resent efforts to take away my collection of firearms! I am far from a 'gun nut' and enjoy my target shooting and hunting.

After your #1 post, referring to yourself as "center" is as false as portraying calm, reasonable, responsible citizenry as focused on the same genitalia you are.

A well-adjusted person would stop blaming guns and hammers. They would blame the drugs, wanton immorality and disastrous social policies your thinking has imposed. Address the problem, not the solution. To answer your question... It is those you've encouraged and validated and protected running the illegal means of access to guns by those you've permanently damaged. You protect the criminals. You protect the insane. You lessen the laws protecting responsible citizens. You impede just legal response to the criminals you protect. You foster more drugs. You and your childish, proxy, damaged youth impersonating you degrade a sane America and you've done it for four decades.

Target shooting, competition shooting, hunting, self defense, et al. But, as mentioned on several other threads, NO firearm manufacturer makes an assault rifle. Assault rifle is a term coined by an agenda to make things sound scary. The definitions (if you can get anyone to give one) are all over the board.

There are about 2.5 Million AR15 rifles in the U.S., but there arn't 2.5 Million serial killers.
They take it to the shooting range for recreational purposes, show it off to their friends, collect it as a novelty item, etc. whatever.
You're far more likely to be killed by a drunk school teacher than by some nut with an AR15.

God, you sound more and more like a perveted little communist each and every single day. Take a gander the last 100+ years of leaders that DID invoke gun control. You don't speak Japanease or German for good reason and the 2nd amendment is what kept Japanease General's from invading the west coast, FOOL!
