It's the Guns, Stupid

“And that's the end of the issue”

Why do we have the same futile argument every time there is a mass killing? Advocates of gun control try to open a discussion about whether more reasonable weapons statutes might reduce the number of violent ... via Truthdig

You can choose not to agree with guns and think no one should own them, that is your choice. You can also choose not to believe in God, that also is your choice. But the first two things you unarmed idiots do when an armed criminal breaks into your house is call someone with a gun like the police, and then pray they get there in time!
You live in very special universe where stupidity and ignorance is a celebration. In reality, the universe most of us live in, armed home invasion is extremely rare. If you let the NRA do your thinking, which obviously you do happily, you believe we 8,000 plus home invasions occur in North America every day – North America? Including Canada and Mexico? Every day? The fact is, no one has these statistics, not even the FBI. Moreover, according to police statistics and judging from the nationwide RSS feed posting every day on Home Invasion News, we aren’t seeing less than a hundred home invasions! The home defense industry has taken up with the NRA and amplified it so much out of proportion that it morphs into a totally new (and quasi-mythical) creature.

Mohandas Gandhi
As usual, the gun-a-holics take a sentence out of an entire speech and completely turn it on its head with their pathetic and never-ending propaganda lies. To put Gandhi’s words in context: "Arms" in his speech were military arms not the personal weapons of private individuals. The context of "depriving of the whole nation of arms" was the refusal of the British to conscript Indians into the British Army during the First World War. Gandhi was an extreme anti-militarist. He used the circumstance for political purposes to advance the cause of Home Rule and Independence.

Froggy said I was a pedophile. I thought only men were. Women never go after little kids, but the men seem to enjoy it. Froggy?

Actually they do have real world facts. By asking real world criminals about their crimes and how they picked their victims and how they were deterred from a crime. When criminals in prisons where polled a gun was number one on being deterred and avoiding a victim. A gun did not stop the criminal but it influenced who their victim would be. They prefer unarmed victims.

My Line In The Sand Is Drawn Here!

What most people fail to realize (because they are not taught it) is that the match that ignited America’s War for Independence was not excessive taxes, or the lack of representation, or trade restrictions, or the lack of trial by jury (as important as these issues were). The match that ignited America’s War for Independence was ATTEMPTED GUN CONFISCATION.

On April 19, 1775, British troops, some 800 strong, were dispatched to Concord, Massachusetts, to arrest Sam Adams and John Hancock and to seize a cache of weapons known to be stored at Concord. When Dr. Joseph Warren sent Paul Revere to warn Pastor Jonas Clark (in whose home Adams and Hancock were staying) that the Crown’s troops were on their way to arrest the two men and seize the guns at Concord, he alerted his male congregants. About 60-70 men from the Church of Lexington stood armed on Lexington Green awaiting the Red Coats.

Upon spotting the citizen militia, a British officer demanded the men throw down their arms. They refused; and the British troops immediately opened fire. Eight of the Minutemen were instantly killed. The colonists returned fire in self-defense, and the shot was fired that was heard ’round the world. By the time the troops arrived at the Concord Bridge, just a few miles away, hundreds of colonists were waiting for them with muskets in hand, and the rest, as they say, is history...

Very interesting. I had no idea. I know some female teachers have relationships with their boy students, but didn't know they went after kids.
You must admit that it's mostly men who do this. Don't you think it is time to confess? I feel as though I could help you or find someone who could.
