"God, guns, guts and American pick-up trucks" is their motto. Wow. As the reporter asked, I wonder how God feels about that.
But here's why some of us feel that there are too many guns in the world already. This was in my newspaper this morning-
"All my life I have tried to pluck a thistle and plant a flower wherever the flower would grow in thought and mind." -- Abraham Lincoln
Yeah, but don't you get it, Bonnie? Those are the bad people with the guns...If we just enforced the gun laws we have, less bad people would have the guns and more good people would have the guns and then all the violence would decrease.
It's pretty simple, really. (Heavy dose of sarcasm intended.....)
Your ignorance is painful to witness.....
BnR - we had a long discussion on here I think before you joined on Gun Control and there are some interesting statistics that may surprise you. Such as the cities with the most gun control laws (like Chicago) have the highest violence rates (with guns). I don't think you will agree with the outcomes of the studies (just a guess) but you may find some of them interesting.
That being said anytime a child is killed by a gun or any other way (whether or not the gun was purchased legally) it is a very sad thing.
There has been studies done for years that have completely clashing statistics. The gun lovers always will pick the ones they want and dismiss the others they don't.
I see the NRA as an organization run by race cowards. They have an almost mental illness of fear that the non-whiteys will rise up and eventually invade all of their homes and that they must be armed to take them on.
I've never owned one in 53 years and I have yet to be attacked by armed marauders wanting to take everything I have and everyone I love. I guess I should just keep waiting for that to happen because it's inevitable I guess.
Based on your perception of the NRA shows that you don't know much about it. I don't agree with everything they say but I have never seen anything that shows racism. If you are able to produce some actual data/stories that show this I would love to read them.
Not everyone likes guns and that is fine. If you think "gun lovers" are just a bunch of white rednecks then I suggest visiting a gun range or gun show and you will see a lot of people from very diverse backgrounds and races.
For the gazillionith time....... guns are a 300 year old part of our culture. They are not going away anymore than drugs are, or that alcohol did during prohibition. It is just not going to happen.
I am 49, bald, ugly, and don't own a single cool thing. Kids like me though.
I just thought the clip was utterly hilarious.
Bonnie does make a good point. There are way too many guns in America. Here's the order in which we should rid our country of guns:
1. Collect all the illegally purchased/traded/sold/unregistered guns in America.
2. Collect all the guns currently carried by police, security, FBI, CIA, politicians, judges, sheriffs, deputies, retired cops, etc.
3. Amend the Constitution.
4. Collect all the legally purchased/owned guns of law-abiding citizens.
the funniest thing is the guy's utter sincerity.
"You don't have a problem with God, do you?"
When she asks if Jesus would carry a gun... "No, they didn't have guns back then. But I believe he would carry a sword if he needed it; but He was so powerful he didn't need anything"
