You nutjobs can quote all the stats you want. It suggests that your kind considers a certain percentage of deaths from gun violence is acceptable. Listen to yourselves. "We'll, golly. Only 15,000 innocent folks died from handguns this year instead of 18,000 last year! Woot, woot!" And you guys believe that's OK! So, yes. When you freaks rationalize that it's alright for innocent folks to die in HUGE numbers, it's bullshit.
The Heller decision re-affirmed our 2nd Amendment rights, but it also said the government can make reasonable restrictions. I think folks should practice ownership like me. I go to training class once a year, I put 500 rounds down range every other month, the guns I don't carry are in a 1" thick steel and concrete fire safe along with my ammo and reloading supplies. No one but bad guys will die from the business end of my guns.
We liberal gun owners will be your worst enemy at the polls in the next eight years. Those of us in the middle have grown tired of the far right. And the women voters, who you have inextricably alienated, are going to cut your balls off.
I love Friday nights!
I don't oppose reasonable restrictions...what's reasonable is up for debate.
You're my (rhetorical) hero, man...That's the sticking point. My view of "reasonable" seems differ a lot, from what someone else (a random hypothetical someone) thinks is "reasonable". And it almost always devolves into an "all or nothing" Friday screaming match.
