Knowing that most of you are leftists, I'm curious to see where you people stand on gun control and that topic in general. Especially after the shootings.
This is a link to some really dumba$$ gun videos. Enjoy
The Constitution says the people can keep and bear arms. It does NOT say we can fire those arms. It also doesn't say anything about ammunition.
It also doesn't say what kind of arms we can keep and bear.
Of course if they are all actually staged -faked or set-up- stupid events, what should we call those who believe them to be real?
State-by-state incident reports compiled by the Violence Policy Center of innocent citizens and law enforcement officers killed by persons issued CCW permits.
Maybe we can say that they haven't been around guns during their life so they aren't as astute at picking out the items you described?
Res ipsa loquitor.
Why the contortions, Donald?
The Concealed Carry Killer reports referenced in the VPC link cover the years leading from 2007-present. Each one of those deaths were caused by the actions of a concealed weapons permit holder. Note how incident dates range from 2007 to 2012 and how the heading above each incident report reads "Concealed Weapon Permit Holder" followed by the shooter's name.
Gun Appreciation Day Special: 3 accidental shootings, 5 wounded at gun shows.
"Total People Killed by Concealed Carry Killers."
The Violence Policy Center's Concealed Carry Killers database documents 370 incidents in 32 states. In more than three quarters of the incidents (295) the concealed carry killer has already been convicted
Now we have something that discusses the shooters actually being Concealed Carry Permit holders. The way it is worded implies that all of the prior lists were not actually Permit Holders, but were simply people who were carrying concealed.An additional 10 incidents were fatal unintentional shootings involving the gun of the concealed handgun permit holder.
Because detailed information on such killings is not readily available, the VPC is forced to rely primarily on news accounts for reports of such killings and subsequent legal proceedings.
Res ipsa loquitor
Meanwhile, in Chicago, where gun laws are among the very strictest in the nation, 17 people were shot over the weekend, 2 fatally.
Logical fallaciesstatistics, how do they work?
who now have cheap flying death robots, which doesn't seem to upset the 2nd amendment absolutists nearly as much as you think it would.
Is the Government operating death drones here in the US? If so, then there may be a Second Amendment issue.
I remember being offered hunters/gun safety courses as a young child (around 10). They do not offer these in my area anymore because parents were outraged that there would be a "gun class."
No hunter's safety courses in Wyoming? I call bullpoop.
This has happened because of parent outcries about "guns in school".
emphasis added for clarityI remember being offered hunters/gun safety courses as a young child (around 10). They do not offer these in my area anymore because parents were outraged that there would be a "gun class."
Now, Donald, for your sake: I am COMPLETELY aware that MI has hunters' education courses; I have been involved with MI DNR education outreach programs. As I stated in my post there ARE hunters' safety courses in MI through the DNR, but they have to be sought out now.
"They do not offer these in my area anymore..."
Donald, I found your picture on the web:
they have to be sought out by the persons who want to take them.
I... I... I don't know what to say. I'm starting to think that "Donald Mullikin" is some sort of elaborate performance art project.
So where do they require to be sought out?
From what I am seeing they are advertised and the links are open for public viewing.
Or are you trying to make it sound harder than what it really is?
If so, what is your objective in that deception?
Donald there is no deception there if you know what the word SOUGHT means. Let me help you out a little bit.
simple past tense and past participle of seek.
seek: verb (used with object)
1.to go in search or quest of: to seek the truth.
2.to try to find or discover by searching or questioning: to seek the solution to a problem.
3.to try to obtain: to seek fame.
4.to try or attempt (usually followed by an infinitive): to seek to convince a person.
5.to go to: to seek a place to rest.
Did you have to do an internet "search" for that information? Ummmm, yup! Therefore, you SOUGHT that information out.
Once again, such courses need to be SOUGHT out by persons wanting to participate (i.e if one wants to participate, one must SEEK out information on when and where courses are taking place). I never said they were DIFFICULT to find, nor did I say they were not available. I simply said they were not offered through the schools anymore.
Donald, stop taking my, and others', words and "fitting" them into your argument, just for the sake of arguing. I know what I said, and I meant what I said.
