since you guys are right.

I had NO idea that there were that many pro-gun control types on GD.

Well, eyes are open now.

Unreal.

I think you all know where I stand.

    Glad to see you Loaf.

    Most times we don't pay attention to the "little" things people say. Then those little things all the sudden become a huge billboard.

    Thank you all.

    I see our "dicussions" over on GD went bye-bye.


    Too bad.

    Well, goodnight to all, and I wish you all a Happy Thanksgiving.

    PB ;
    Welcome ;
    Shocking when one discovers that the person you thought `had your back' turns out to be just another deviant with a hunger for backsides.ehhh ?
    SUCH a `twist'.'got your back' means different things to different people...and THEIR definition is repugnant to decent folks.

    When these men hereabouts speak of `brotherhood'.it means something deeper then mere `blood'. They are dipping into the `Warrior Stream' that flows endlessly thru time and space.and are connecting to that spirit DEMANDED in men by a higher power designed to give men maximum freedom of choice over their own lives.
    That spirit reached its apex with the Founders...and has been in a steady decline every since.

    We few are truly the few, the proud, the army of one...ready to come together when conditions become intolerable...as they surely will.

    What I don't get is the mentality of a human that proclaims that filling out a form to ask for permission is somehow doesn't deny you any right. In other words, how do some people fail to distinguish between a right and a privilege, it's just mind-boggling, I think it falls in line with some mental disorders.

    Even if the yellow canary * here are 100% absolutely correct in their "totally no gun laws" position it would still make them and their position meaningless. Reason being that the gun banners can't reach their goal because they don't have enough power and now, thanks to the recent US Supreme Court decision on the second admendment, the gun banners are having more of an up-hill battle. But they will never stop trying.

    By comparsion the pro-gun side can't win the gun rights war because there are not enough of us and only a few of us actually get out and try to fight for our gun rights. The rest of the gun owners either do nothing or jeer at those of us who do put out some effort.

    So, bottom line, for either the gun banners or the pro-gun people to win this gun rights war, one group is going to have to enlist the help of that large majority of Americans who are in the middle and don't presently care one way or the other.

    The problem is that people like the yellow canary * are going to make us lose that great crowd of the middle of the roaders by advertising that guns should be sold out of vending machines and ideas like that.

    Kinda like if a city police chief announced his police were going to raid some inner city drug houses and kill every criminal they could find. Now some of us might like that position, but the majority of citizens would either be very much against it or at the very least mildly against it. So the police chief would soon be out of a job without his force having carried out the raid the chief had bragged about.

    Simple logic and facts of how the world and people in it work. Time might teach that lesson to some here.

    Perhaps you would care to go and review the JPFO chart of governments that passed gun control laws...and the subsequent mass murders of citizens.
    Perhaps the lesson might drive home to you what we are saying.

    For a right as controversial as guns rights, if you cannot stand on a street corner and preach your ideas to every passing citizen, without those citizens avoiding you like you are crazy, they your ideas don't have a chance in hell of ever being brought into existance.

    Do a reality check. Stand on a street corner, shopping mall, college campus, etc. and preach that because of the second amendment, firearms, among other ways, should legally be allowed to be sold out of vending machines.

    If and after you have presented your gun rights philosophy to the average Americans, then come back and tell me what kind of reaction you got.

    Hell, even tell your philosophy to your relatives, co-workers, neighbors, etc. and, if you dare, come back and tell me what kind of reaction you got.

    I need a good laugh.

    Even if such extensive gun rights as selling them out of vending machines was constitution and even if it is a good idea, the majority of Americans will never, ever let it happen. Well, unless you overthrow the government and kill everyone who doesn't agree with you. I sometimes think that is what many here want.

    Your 'vending machine' example is simply not something that many can take seriously.

    How about you and Wayne do the same, present your collectivist philosophy and preach 'non-adherence to the Constitution', 'acceptable gun-laws', 'compromise is good', 'government should protect us from the bad people' and other such claptrap.

    Come tell me how many converts you get, okay?

    Philosophy and issues of the proper role of government and of the Constitution, are not to be shouted from the street corner in an attempt to gain converts, for obvious reasons.

    Of course it is something that most cannot take seriously. That is not breaking news. But if there were absolutely no gun laws, selling firearms out of vending machine would have to be seen as a legal way of selling guns. So mentioning that fact is just a quick, easy and legitimate way of underscoring how crazy it would be to have absolutely no gun laws.

    You can offer such flawed protests all day long. But you do not live alone on some island. You live with over 300 million other Americans. Regardless of what the constitution says, while you attempt to obtain those constitutional rights you must have many (probably a majority) of Americans on your side. You will not get that by preaching you want absolutely no gun control laws and therefore support the idea of children, illegal aliens, convicted violent criminals being LEGALLY armed.

    Many times some of the others (and maybe even you) have preached about how, to get your radical idea to work, you must educate and convert other Americans. I don't seem you doing any of that. All I see is you yellow canary * talking among your selves, jointly attacking people who disagree with you and trying to convert/educate a tiny number of people here on GB.com. You have been doing this for years and I don't see any large army of people you have converted.

    In red above. There are no "obvious reasons" why your gun rights ideas cannot be shouted on street corners unless you are ashamed of doing that shouting

    Controversial? Only to those that look to Government for protection. Sadly this does include the majority of Americans today, though does not need to be the case in the America of tomorrow.

    If, Mr. Fox, we can empower the average American by instilling the Founders' notion of individual supremacy, we can enlighten them as to the promise of freedom. If, however, we continue to tell them that they must be protected by the state, the weak will continue to believe that there must be state protections in place.

    One-on-one I have found that most people believe themselves to have power over their own lives. It disgusts me when people support the notion that they do not have that power and support anti-Constitutional laws that reinforce that notion.
    Freedom and a submissive populace cannot co-exist.

    (Sigh)

    I grow weary in the attempt to educate simple minds on what should be a simple subject. The subject: Rights vs. privileges.
    Message to the TRfox's: you do not "obtain" a right, understand? (The founders already covered that ground for you) You claim it as your own, then exercise it constantly. Hopefully then, people who "see it", begin to understand what "it" is. Those who refuse, such as yourself, well... to hell with 'em. They likely will never be able to overcome their fear of the responsibility and risk, that goes along with a "right".


    BTW fox, I was a child of 14, not that long ago (1984), when I purchased my very first firearm at a coast to coast hardware store over-the-counter, all by myself, no forms, no BGC, no hassle. Shocking! Still have it. As far as gun related memories go, it is second only to that first Christmas .22 bolt gun at 10 years of age.
    You're an old fart, how many did you purchase before becoming an "adult"? Now you would deny that experience? Hypocrite indeed.
