    No you're doing the typical liberal selective ethics Kabooki presentation where you arbitrarily give your self way to much credit for the blatant exploitation of a mass murder.


    Just because you've found a way to justify it doesn't mean it's still not a pretty low life thing to do.
    You are frothing at the mouth due to a mental lapse... Good luck finding me ranting about the NRA in other threads or even being in the gun forum much at all if ever. I think I might have been in there once. You are simply doing a standard anti-liberal rant and putting my face on it without even knowing a thing about my positions on it all.

    I stay away from most gun chatter threads because as your post suggest, it is far too polarized to even try to explain that I'm not of the position that everyone should have a nuke or the position that everyone should be naked and without any weapon at all... and this topic doesn't seem to allow anyone who isn't one or the other of these two positions.

They run a risk of getting caught just buying the materials and taking the time to assemble them.
    A lot of these people aren't right in the head, at least with mass shootings.
    School shootings are rare to boot.

    Assembling a bomb won't get you caught, the materials are widely available.

I do however think that there is a conversation to be had about high capacity clips, assault rifles, non-hunting stuff like that. I don't see any need to ban guns outright. 4-10's, 10, 12, 20 guage shotguns. 30-30's, 30 aught 6, my dad's 303 British Enfield (with stock carved by my grandad that was stolen dammit)...
    Removing 30 round mags or "assault rifles" won't make any reasonable impact on gun violence.
    I was discovering that life just simply isn't fair and bask in the unsung glory of knowing that each obstacle overcome along the way only adds to the satisfaction in the end. Nothing great, after all, was ever accomplished by anyone sulking in his or her misery.

    because there would not be so many bodies whose blood can be used to fuel the jihad against our rights

    do you really think the anti gun extremists like seeing massacres thwarted by honest people using guns?

    In Israel teachers carry carbines. They don't have school shootings in Israel.

    Re: NRA Newtown response

    Now we are to take time to turn people into highly trained security personel... the very people who, as we've been told for some time now, are overpaid and incompetent teachers whose pay are bankrupting cities and who barely have time in the day to sleep after teaching all day and grading papers all night.

    They can sit in the office next to the people who don't see a problem with leaving those same children at the mercy of psychos.
