I was very serious, about a real-life scenario, just because you deny it does not make it "mythical".
The scenario you reference - Democrats shutting down the government - is indeed mythical. Mythical means imaginary or fictitious, and that's exactly what your scenario is. It's the GOP who is threatening to shut down the government, and if it happens it's because that's what the GOP wants.

There's no logical, rational way to deny this fact. Everyone acknowledges it's true. House GOP members are "giddy" about the idea. Members of the GOP are saying it's true. To deny it is to believe myth over reality.

Very famous example of children being told to not touch a gun and then exposed to a gun just a few minutes later: most boys handle the gun.

Kids are kids.

Even when their parents are gun gnutters who often end up killing each other anyway.

On cusp of shutdown, House conservatives excited, say they are doing the right thing

While much of official Washington on Saturday somberly faced the likelihood of a government shutdown, the most conservative members of the House sported a different expression.

They were smiling.

Were very excited, said Rep. Michele Bachmann (R-Minn.).Its exactly what we wanted, and we got it.
...
Its wonderful, said Rep. John Abney Culberson (R-Tex.), clapping his hands to emphasize the point.Were 100 percent united!

GOP Rep. Exasperated With 'Giddy' House Conservatives As Shutdown Looms

With a government shutdown appearing imminent Monday, a Republican congressman expressed frustration with the conservative wing of his party.

"We're pretty much out of options at this point," Rep. Devin Nunes (R-CA) said, as quoted by the Wall Street Journal.

"They're all giddy about it," he said in reference to Republicans most unwilling to compromise. "You know who benefits the most here from a shutdown? The Democrats benefit and they know that."

Rep. Tom Cole (R-OK) also admitted that Republicans will be damaged politically in the event of a government shutdown. Meanwhile, a poll released Monday showed that Americans will be more inclined to blame congressional Republicans for a shutdown than President Barack Obama.

----------

Know why most Americans will blame the GOP if there's a government shut-down?

Because they don't believe in myths.

LOL!

When you frame the question as "laws against criminal behavior" vs "gun safety laws" you are creating a false choice. You create that false choice to avoid honestly dealing with the issue.
That's because YOU have decided that guns ARE the issue when they clearly are not. The issue is violence, the deaths of innocent people, and violent killers walking our streets. The problem is liberal "feel good" policies that let people escape responsibility for their actions. It's always "because" of something that this poor person committed this act of violence......his momma didn't breast feed......his dad spanked him....he comes from a broken home.....any kind of BS psycho-babble excuse to keep from making him accept responsibility for what he did. So violent offenders get off light early in their career and put back on the streets even after numerous "warning signs". The next thing ya know....they kill someone or a dozen someones. Do you want to reduce crime and violence by a very large percentage? Reduce the number of KNOWN repeat violent offenders and KNOWN mentally ill who are a potential danger to themselves and others who are not currently institutionalized. Get them off the streets and keep them off until they no longer are a threat. I'll wager that it would be much more effective than trying to regulate tools.

Clearly, the issue is: people like you are all too happy to sell guns to complete and utter strangers.

Ninety percent of Americans think that this is a loony idea.

Start by making it against the law to sell to people who aren't allow to have guns.

Make it a felony.

Confiscate the firearms of anyone committing this crime immediately; destroy the firearms if he or she is found guilty. Include tracking down and confiscating any and all guns purchased legal by anyone found guilty of these felonies.

And conduct sting operations at all gun shows: send in felons in the same fashion police now use teenagers in sting operation for illegal alcohol sales.

The killing of a dozen someone's is usually by people have legal authority to buy guns.

The obvious solution is to make it harder to buy guns.

Far more people are killed by a gun in their own home than by a "violent killers walking the street".

Now THAT is truly a straw man argument. The gun control lobby has been repeating that lie for years. Don't tell me you actually fell for it.

Like it would really stop at background checks. You gun control advocates always try to set some kind of "harmless and reasonable" precedent with the NEXT infringement already in mind. Then cry foul when those who defend their rights and freedoms don't fall for the diversion. Try again.......fool.

Like suggesting that you shouldn't be allowed to sell deadly weapons to complete strangers when you could take ten minutes and check if he or she is a felon.
