I may well be arrogant, but I am allso open with it.
This matter regarding another poster, it started here, so end it here. It is yourself that is self serving with your desire to be secretive,,YOU are trying to trade on my curiosity. YOU show some consideration for others and stop beating about the bush.
I have gone out of my way to give you time to show some civility. A few seconds ago at this writing your InBox is still blocked.

"Oh, since entering this post I have read a great deal about your rights and principles and the more I learn..."
...the more ignorant YOU become. You can't just read...you also have to comprehend the history and the context in which they where achieved. You have failed to do that as you continually prove by your lack of understanding.
"You are right about me not understanding YOUR views of those principles,..."
I know I'm right...I have been right with every post to you. Your blind, arrogant, ignorance is oozing out of every post and it affects your ability to comprehend or even attempt to see a point of view from another perspective.
Your arrogance still prevents you from acknowledging the facts that I presented to you regarding murders with rifles...and you are still wrong. The fact is murders are committed with a wide varity of objects...it isn't the objects that need our focus to try and curtail these murders...it is the actions or reasoning of the individuals involved. Why these crimes are being committed...? What are the punishments for killing another human being...? Why, in our justice system, are we convicting a man that beat his grandmother to death with a hammer, then releasing him 17 years later, where as a convicted felon he gets guns and then kills 2 fireman and wounds 2 others...? This was NOT the fault of any gun...no gun is ever at fault.
A: How many excuses will you find to try and justify your stance on guns? You a gun owning tit, dare to call me ignorant, that is never the case with me....I have walked to the other side and thought about how you would percieve a massacre the death of innocents protecting your family, or the idea of having your rights of owning your guns to get where and when you like taken away......and while over there I realised, you are a all gun owning bloody idiots!.....Your rights aren't being threatened and gun deaths are rising and will surpass even road accidents if they keep going on the path they are traveling....so to remove anything that can reduce those numbers of deaths like removing weapons that are not useful or required would be taking very positive action that wouldn't affect any gun owner in their law abiding pursuits.....yet No, you say...Your stance is unreasonable, ignorant, selfish,ludicrous but most of all murderous.

Yes it was,,,but I seem to remember a past post of yours when you stated that every one is a racist,, is that not so ??? what exactly did you mean ?
The point of fact is that Adeladean did not use the "N" word, not whether or not I said everyone is a racist, is it? Not every racist uses the "N" word, do they? Now I have no problems using that word because African Americans do, so when they stop I will....it doesn't justify that they can scream the word is racist then use it freely else what is the point of making the word out to be a racist word then bandy it about knowing it's origins....just saying. Yes you can quote me....
