17. "Restricting guns" covers a wide definition.
Sun Nov 5, 2023, 09:49 PM
Nov 2023

Restricting certain types, or all of them? And "toting isn't fully defined, either. Do you mean ALL firearms carry, or just open carry?

Training with other than an "assault weapon" is OK, then? Do you have a good description of an "assault weapon"? Many descriptions have been offered on this site, some, completely wrong. Just want to make sure we're on the same page.

What does supporting the 2d amendment, "gun supporters", have to do with a better society? No guns, no violence? That won't happen, and for more than one reason. There was violence in the world before guns, and would be long after you would get rid of them. Violence is currently committed without firearms, in case you need a cite.

Is this one of those "see how great guns are" type posts? Silent Type Nov 2023 #1
Oh c'mon...don't you wish you could be the guy... ret5hd Nov 2023 #2
I'm convinced gunners don't spend time arming up and training because they don't want to shoot someone. Silent Type Nov 2023 #3
I have a question: yagotme Nov 2023 #6
If you are arming up and training for urban warfare, need more than a 38 special or shotgun Silent Type Nov 2023 #9
OK, thanks for your opinion on that. Do you have a stance on training? nt yagotme Nov 2023 #10
Let's hear your reason for posting this gun love junk, first. Silent Type Nov 2023 #12
You brought up training. I asked how you felt about it. yagotme Nov 2023 #13
I feel like we need to restrict guns, particularly toting. As far as training goes, Silent Type Nov 2023 #14
"Restricting guns" covers a wide definition. yagotme Nov 2023 #17
Drop the pretense...why post gun-humping blood lusting bullshit? ret5hd Nov 2023 #19
Lotta adjectives there. Pretty negative ones, too. yagotme Nov 2023 #20
Always asking'...never answering. ret5hd Nov 2023 #21
You asked "Why post..." yagotme Nov 2023 #22
You are correct. My mistake. ret5hd Nov 2023 #23

However, it is reasonalble to assume from your gun love, you might well get excited about the feel of a barrel. Silent Type Nov 2023 #25
Now, you're putting words/thoughts of yours, and attributing them to me. yagotme Nov 2023 #27
How often do you oil your guns? Silent Type Nov 2023 #28
As needed. Like any other mechanism. yagotme Nov 2023 #31
That's just restriction for the sake of restriction TexasDem69 Nov 2023 #30
Less guns means less crime, if for no other reason than guns are the most sought after item in burglary. Silent Type Nov 2023 #32
Let's stop selling liquor. yagotme Nov 2023 #35
Everyone has heard that lame junk before. Besides, most gunners I've known were drunks. Silent Type Nov 2023 #36
A LOT of drunks are drivers, too. Cars and booze don't mix, either. What's lame about saving lives??? yagotme Nov 2023 #39
of course it is Skittles Nov 2023 #4
I guess this person shouldn't have defended the home? TexasDem69 Nov 2023 #5
plenty of people deal with crime without guns Skittles Nov 2023 #7
That doesn't answer the question even a little bit TexasDem69 Nov 2023 #8

The listed article is lacking in pertinent details. yagotme Nov 2023 #15
In my opinion, article would have mentioned they were armed or attacked home owner. Silent Type Nov 2023 #16
Article is kinda sketchy. yagotme Nov 2023 #18
Of course you wouldn't. Why post a sketchy article in the first place. The NRA has a site for posting gun love. Silent Type Nov 2023 #26
This board has a section to post about gun control and RKBA. yagotme Nov 2023 #29
Don't we still have the option to express a rebuttal opinion? Silent Type Nov 2023 #33

I agree with this: yagotme Nov 2023 #40
"Gun rights are a losing issue" TexasDem69 Nov 2023 #41
Arguing/passing laws restricting gun rights is a losing issue. yagotme Nov 2023 #42
It depends on whether you are a money grubbing Republican or not. AndyS Nov 2023 #43
Hmm. An internet survey from seven years ago TexasDem69 Nov 2023 #45
Look at the bottom of the top poll, for the "**" reading. yagotme Nov 2023 #46
The numbers are the same now and you know it. AndyS Nov 2023 #47
