Response to Aristus (Original post)

Sun Dec 23, 2012, 10:44 AM

35. Dealing with a live one on FB

Friended him awhile back on FB not knowing he was such a wingnut. I was arguing with him last night over a post he made about the President being hypocritical about him saying that guns make us less safe while pointing out that he has armed protection at all times and I pointed out that, of course, he's President and needs more protection than the average person and then he replied that as a former Marine he's under constant threat (paranoid?) as well and that Obama has tried to ban guns 4 times during his Presidency so far and that he's going to try again in March by taking advantage of Newtown. Apparently, doom is perpetually around the corner for these people. This, despite the fact that we actually had a ban on assault weapons for 10 years without losing our democracy and other countries have stricter laws and are still democracies. The bigger problem for all of these people furiously buying guns IMHO is them not knowing what to do with all of them when nobody actually shows up to take their guns and kick-start that second Civil War against the gub'mint that some of them seem to be pining for.
