Considering the fact that the statement (blood in the streets) is an anti-gunner meme, you should probably be telling them your little fact.
Nice cop out on answering the honesty question, Dan.

I've never heard that particular "meme." Are you sure you aren't just making it up? LOL!

Define gunner, Dan.
It might be a good thing that you see me as such.

I use 'gunner' to describe pro-gun fanatics who have allowed this single issue define their lives. They worship the 2nd Amendment like it's a sacred text, hoard guns and ammo, are obsessed with everything gun related, have a paranoid persecution complex, believe someone is waiting around every corner to shoot them, think that government confiscation of guns is a genuine threat, and spend in inordinate amount of their time thinking about, talking about, and reading about guns and gun rights.

I've been shooting guns since I was a kid. I've owned a lot of different firearms over the years. I like shooting and I've taught my kids to shoot. But like the majority of gun owners in this nation, I'm not obsessed. I value the freedom to be safe from gun violence and, like all rational, thinking Americans, recognize that certain reasonable restrictions are necessary to limit gun violence and do not violate the Constitution.

So there's a difference between a gun owner and a gunner. I am the former; you are the latter.

And another difference is that gunners can't tell the difference. As you're just about to prove. LOL!

Hi. I'm so happy to finally get through to you.
I have one major problem, and that's Barack Obama himself.
My problem is, as a black woman, I am embarrassed to be a black-American.
My grandmother is 94 years old, and I imagine that her and all of our ancestors that died and fought for what we're supposed to call freedom, this is not what they imagined of the first black president.
I mean, Congress is not doing their job.
They don't want to say anything that criticizes him.

You should hide your anti-Semitism better in order to conceal your faux-America patriotism.
Your ignorance along with all Christendom's use of Pharisee as a pejorative is an insult to us who study at the feet of these sages.
So when you do use Pharisee as an insult, you reek of anti-Semitism.

What is your obsession with trying to do away with the 2nd Amendment?
I am not obsessed with doing away with the 2nd Amendment. I've never said anything like that. In fact I've said the opposite of that. You obviously don't know the first thing about me.
Independent wrote:
Do you speak out against gun laws that are unconstitutional, Dan?
Like "The right to bear arms shall not be infringed?"
Like not giving out concealed carry permits for law abiding citizens because you don't think they have a good enough reason to carry?
And the hoards of other unconstitutional laws?
Conceal Carry Permits shouldn't even be a requirement to exercise a right.
None of those restrictions are unconstitutional. Only a gunner would think so.

I have no problem keeping guns out of the hands of violent felons or the violently mentally ill. Make that system work without making the law abiding jump through hoops. Seriously, Dan, how many laws are necessary to say murder is illegal? Most law abiding people do not knowingly sell firearms to felons or the mentally dangerous. If they knowingly do, I have no problem with the seller being prosecuted.
Key word - "most". But some do, don't they? And because some do, better regulation is needed.

Regulated freedom isn't really true freedom......is it? More regulation = less freedom. Try regulating the "some" who "do" and stop infringing on the rights of everybody who "doesn't".

Typical gunner short-sighted tunnel-vision.

When regulation makes everyone safer, everyone's freedom is enhanced.

I notice you haven't responded to the multitude of your hateful posts that I sent you. I wonder why? LOL!

Gee, you should pay more attention. I have responded to your geekery.

There's nothing "short-sighted" about my view of the slippery slope created by socialism. The progression has been clearly mapped since the '30s. When "regulation" is used to gradually erode individual liberty "for our own good" you know that you're dealing with a Big Brother Nanny State. Which, by the way, is a completely un-American philosophy. Maybe you've been brainwashed into believing that YOUR freedom is enhanced by the iron fist of government control but millions of other Americans see through the smoke and mirrors.

The error and the embarrassment are all yours. Try again.......

Hmm. Nice idea but it does not hold water. Where gun laws are enacted the number of defenseless victims goes up. If even one person is denied the ability to defend themselves and they are harmed then the entire premise of "enhanced" safety is null. We already have laws to punish those who harm others but when a law facilitates a criminal in the ability to make their victim defenseless then the law is no longer an aid to safety (except for the criminal).
Doctors take an oath of "Do no harm" to their patients, even if it means do nothing. Law makers should do the same thing. You don't kill a patient to cure a disease. By the same token you don't disarm a victim in an attempt to try to control just one option a criminal has in committing harm to the victim.

Where there are effective gun safety regulations, violent crime goes down.

Any law that facilitates crime is ineffective and should be replaced with effective law.

Gun safety laws enhance public safety, thus increasing freedom and liberty for everyone.

No serious person is talking about disarming victims.

Compared to what?

If a "Constitutional Standard" is applied (as it should be), then the Republican side of the isle is not perfect...they are simply a lesser evil.

The Democrats want to control the Internet, place "monitors" in newsrooms to control what news we see, and are ok with IRS targeting voices of opposition of the current administration.

So Chicago having strong gun laws has stopped violent crime? Ha ha ha. Keep trying to sell that crap. I would place a large portion of my money on "most" victims of crime wished they had a gun when being attacked. I would bet MOST murder victims would have been glad to have had a means of self defense when their lives were taken. Cops carry "high capacity" guns for their protection when dealing with criminals. BUT criminals rarely attack cops. Criminals prefer defenseless victims. Logic dictates that being as the majority of victims of crime are ordinary citizens then the ordinary citizen should be as armed or more armed than cops.

Answer this. If you are at home in the middle of the night and hear an unknown number of intruders and have the chance to call police, do you only want ONE to come and then be only armed with a limited amount of ammo?

Public safety? You adhere to the idea that involving yourself in endangering a few victims is good for the majority?

Another question. If killing just one innocent child would lead to saving 10 other people by organ transplant would you be willing to be the one to kill the child?
While I would agree with the lives of the many are worth saving I would never sacrifice the life of even one innocent to save the many. For freedom, safety and rights to exist it most apply evenly to all. If the President or police are placed above everyone else were safety or ability to defend their life then you create a tier system of worth for life in accordance with where you are on the tier.
In history many cultures believed human sacrifice of a few innocent people lead to benefit the whole. it was wrong then as it is now. If a civilization can not sustain its self without sacrificing a few innocent citizens then perhaps it should not be sustained.

Removing the rights of a few for the greater good always sounds good UNLESS you are one of the few that suffered the lose.

As a law abiding peaceful citizen with no intention of using my gun to harm innocent citizens then disarming me does nothing to provide more safety to you or the majority. It does however endanger my life if the need ever arises that I need my gun to defend myself. I personally take it as arrogant for you to sacrifice me for your perceived safety.

Compared to itself. This Congress has accomplished less than any Congress in history, including Truman's "Do Nothing Congress" of the late 1940s.

The Republican side is the greater evil. They are doing real, measurable damage to this nation.

Democrats do not want to control the internet. They do not want to control the news we see. And they did not target their political opposition. You believe things that are objectively false. You should seek out an objective source for your information about what's going on in this country.
