    Right..because a gun will protect you from a bomb....geesh!

     

    Most of my gun-owning friends are very responsible..normal people. I do know one guy though who seriously believes that the US is going to be in a civil war in the near future. He believes this because apparently it's difficult to by ammunition in NH..where he lives.

    So is denial



    Actually, that's a river in Egypt.

     

    But I wonder what you call it when someone says "ooh, look, a tragedy caused some people to buy guns! HAHAHAAHH! YOU LOSE, SUCKERS!"

     Who said that?

     

     




     

     

     

     

    It is a summary of Tvoter's thinking.

    And it is disgusting.

     

     



    Oh so you're a mind reader now? Who knew...

     

     



    Yes, I take evidence into account and determine the intent of people.  Every one does this.  Except you.  HA, HA, HA...

     

     



    I go by what people actually say...not what I THINK they're saying. You should try it

     



    I think it is clear what he says.  You choose not to see the meaning of his words.  It would be different he was a liberal.  You pick and choose when you are snarky and when you are obtuse largely because of political affiliation. And that is my interpretation of what you are thinking and doing. Whether you actually admit or not is your problem.

    One more poke in the eye of this debate:

     

    The Constitution clearly establishes the right for Americans to form a "well-regulated militia" as an adjunct to the "right to bear arms".

    What, if anything, in the law would prevent a group of American citizens who happen to be muslims from fortifying themselves, buying guns and forming a libertarian, 'freemen'-type militia in opposition to gov't policies...?

    For the people so concerned about applying a religious litmus test to immigrants, when will they get around to excluding musilm-americans from gun ownership...?  Most are just "hard-working, law-abiding gun owners", after all.

    I like our military's chances...just sayin

     


    So not the point.  Nobody mentioned challenging the u.s. military.

    I'm talking about being armed and forming a militia as provided by The Constitution...whether they take any action against the govt or not.

    In the aftermath of last week's bombings, calls of eviscerating common protections under the constitution have been flying from all over the rightward media...on the heels of their battle to preserve "gun rights" at all costs.

    Know idea what you're talking about as I don't follow "rightward" media. What is "rightward" media anyway?

     



    You don't know what a muslim or a militia is?  The Constitution?  2nd Amnt?  Ring a bell?

    The same people advocating for virtually unlimited access to guns - in the name of "freedoms" - are the same people looking to deny other, similarly essential rights - speech, assembly, privacy - based solely upon one's religion.

    Tangentially, when they argue for "religious freedom" over matters like LGBT rights, birth control and abortion, those arguments conspicuously vanish when it comes to the islamic faith.

    I said I didn't know what "rightward" media is since THAT is what you referred to. But you know that.

     

    I haven't heard of anyone calling for unlimited access to guns. Especially considering overwhelming majority of NRA members support background checks. So there's that.

     



    That's just subtext.

    The original question still stands.

     

    What a majority of NRA members think, and what the NRA spends its lobbying dollars on are entirely different things.  Even so, the NRA does not even represent a majority of gun owners.

    Exactly. And since 90% of American's support background checks it kills your argument even more


    Except that that's not my argument.  Try again.

    (Even if it was, religion itself is not a valid basis for background checks under the constitution.)

    Are you even sure you know what your point is?

     

     



    Yes.  It's the one you insist on ignoring.

     

    Try to keep up.
