guppy guppy guppy, just because you don't like children defending themselves is no reason to be such a dumbass.

or do you hate armed children because that interferes with your fun
Looks like someone took the muzzle off Droid.

Children are NOT supposed to be ARMED. If someone has to tell you, there is a problem.

I am assuming you have kids. God forbid. Are they armed? If so, that is sick and a form of child abuse.

Have you told your kids that Obama is coming for their guns? You should break it to them this weekend so they can get used to the idea. If you tell them at the 11th hour, they will throw a fit. I would like to see the look on their sweet? little faces when you tell them. Try not to cry. That will upset them.

Yet you do not address any of that earlier content of mine. No re-think, no admission, no apology.
Given that instead you now skirt around it remarkably tersely, can you see how your reaction might seem a little "timid"?:)
Was that your attempt at a white glove to my chin?

"No re-think, no admission and no apology"?

Really?

Let me get this straight,

--WE'RE

Here to debate what to do about the epidemic of gun violence within our country. Children die, daily... Needlessly and senselessly.

--SOME

Are here for their honest concerns regarding our Constitutional Rights.

--ALL

Of us who are citizens of this country, only want what we feel is best for her.

--YET

You're particularly unhinged because you feel I've unjustly offended "your" overly delicate set of sensibilities?

That about sum it up?

You sound more like a contemptuous whining Brit than an Australian. I wasn't aware they produced them so fragile south of the equator.

--WELL

Take a number, Jack.

--YOU

15 year old uses ar 15 to shoot intruders.
Bet that just makes your liberal bowels loosen up when another person uses a gun to kill your thug friends.
Hah, a little weasel like you has all the liberal news to bring you gun victms, and only a couple of conservative spots to find the daily defensive gun uses.
And the shooting occured in that heaven you call the most restrictive gun control state in the US.
How stupid of you liberal to never recognize that.
And dumbass you thinks you can convince us your insane gun control somehow does anything but kill innocent people.

You sound for the world, a child... Who's about to have their favorite toy taken away.

I wonder if Spider ordered his 'doll' today from the internet.

If he did, he'll probably overnight it because he'll be like a little kid on Christmas.

For all I know, he already could have one. That one is probably pretty nasty at this point. Hope he takes better care of this one. He'll probably have to run out and buy bleach and those Clorox wipes. Try to keep this one clean!

Poor Spiders wife. I feel for her.

Some Gun owners imply that if the US government tries to take their guns 1776 will happen again. Once a 'tax on Whiskey' was unacceptable. The South, essentially said the same about slaves. Will it happen?

On April 19 1775, the BLOODY BRITISH tried to disarm the colonials, at Concord, and in Lexington.
The operative word is 'tried.'
On that glorious day, the said colonials KICKED ROYAL ARSE, and sent all the King's men, and all the King's horses a-packing!

Santa Anna didn't care about disarming Texicans, he wanted a 'final solution'. Strategically and Tactically he was foolish. If he had put Uribe in charge the southwestern US would still be claimed by Mexico.

what about the 565 children killed by guns or the 8500 adults last year? It is staggering ...
In the days leading up to the mass shooting in Newtown, 12-year-old Demetri Phillips was shot and killed by a friend while playing with a gun in their shared home on Dec. 6. Two days later, Craig Allen Loughrey, 7, died in a gun store parking lot. His father’s gun went off inside the family truck and struck the boy, strapped into a booster seat, in the chest – the problem is not exactly new!!!
Gun education not more gun laws. There was 684675 chicken killed last year now that is staggering why did the chicken cross the road.

You speak at me as though I was an American. I am not.
If I speak FOR the Americans, it is because I see them the last best hope for the rest of this miserable world.
The fact that there are men and women in this world willing to stand up to tyrannical bastards such as yourself, and face you down really pisses you off, doesn't it?
When push comes to shove, I see YOU as curling up into the feotal position, and squealing like like a stuck swine.
Face it: YOU are an EFFING coward, and the thought of standing up for yourself makes you wet your pants.

Stop whingeing.
You had your chance to be a white country. But your ancestors blew it. Now if you tried to retake Washington the blacks in and surrounding the Capital would give you a whipping.
You need to face the fact that America wont be whole until evryone is a little darker than your President. Sort of a turd colour.
