GUEST,John P BS: A Thanksgiving Day gun sale (150* d) RE: BS: A Thanksgiving Day gun sale 04 Dec 14


Olddude, please explain to me how the scenario I laid out earlier isn't the only possible result of your desire to have lots of armed citizens in all public places, ready to shoot anyone with a gun. How does one untrained and non-uniformed shooter tell any other untrained and non-uniformed shooter from a crazy person with a gun? What happens to all the other people nearby? How does this situation not open the door for general murder: "He had a gun so I shot him".

I have to conclude that the depth of your thinking on this subject extends to the level of the bumper sticker. That leaves you woefully unprepared to answer the next question that naturally and logically occurs, much less the tenth question down the line. Please think your position all the way through.

I've been trying to be charitable and assume that you were joking up-thread when you said that you have lots of loaded guns laying around your house, but based on other things you've said, I have a horrible suspicion that you weren't. You've just announced an all-you-can-eat buffet for gun thieves every time you leave your house. Are you really too stupid to lock your guns up when you're not using them? Do you really think that anyone can't find out where you live in about half an hour on the web? If your guns get stolen because they are easily accessible, don't you feel responsible for any crimes that get committed with them?

C'mon, defend your position. Be a grown-up and take responsibility for your words and actions. I'd like to see the facts and the logic that support your positions laid out for us so we can have a real debate on the subject. Or, as I said, shut the fuck up.
