78. Fair enough.

 

And what a long post on guns...wow!
I'll bookmark that one for future reference.


You should check out the archives. Seriously. This argument has been going on since just about the day DU went live some 16ish years ago. I watched and read for the first few years, and decided to start participating in 2004, and I can tell you firsthand, what you see here now is mild and meek, compared to the old days. And, its a bit more abbreviated than it used to be, I can remember a lot of 300+ post threads locked due to length in those days.

Seriously, check out the archives when you can.

Potentially lethal?
I think the gun is the most potential lethal product at Walmart.
Although you may be able to provide a recipe to make a bomb from the fertilizer in the back
But I will agree that we probably view this topic at a slightly different angle.


So you make your bomb. Its potentially lethal. It is how you decide to use it that determines whether it will be or wont be, just like I said. Just like a gun. Just like a knife. Just like an automobile. Just like a golf club. It is undeniable.

Oh sh*t! - Sorry to reference GE instead of you.
12th grade universal training is good.
I thought it was a great proposal that could gain ground.


No biggie. I wasn't sweating it, it was just in the interest of accuracy.

Gun free zones?
Unfortunately in a democratic system, some people who voted, will not get their way.
That's where majority rules.


I'm not talking about private property here, FYI. I'm talking about public spaces.


(I can;t imagine someone saying "i'm not going to San Fran, because of the gun free zone, because I have a gun"


I can imagine someone being in a position where they're carrying but are forced to leave the gun in the car because they have to cross some public space where they aren't allowed to carry, as one of their destinations for the day.


Oh, and for what its worth, I don't carry, nor do I have any desire to.
