    The fact was related to American mythology. Sorry. But good try all the same.

    Nothing to do with rights as pertains to automobiles. And I have gutted more cats and blacked out more windows than I can remember.

    where did I attack your post as irrational. I used it to note that deterrence of criminals has nothing to do with what motivates those who are calling for more laws that only impede honest people. Kids aren't legally allowed to own guns-let alone take them to school and shoot people. what laws would have stopped that? banning his parents from owning a gun before he did it?

    you are either IGNORANT of what dems have done in many states or dishonestly claim that such laws don't exist and that assholes like those turds mentioned by CC don't plan even more nonsense.
    Neither. None if these laws amount to anything significant.

    It wasnt that partisan till you showed up. You came on this thread to do nothing but run to the defense of the gun banners in the thread.

    I didn't say you attacked my post as irrational. I said your response was irrational.

    Phrasing your response as you have here is not as partisan and petty as your previous effort. So, I was responding to something MaggieD posted.

    What would you call significant? A total gun ban?

    Wow, you just know what everyones intentions are better then they do and the value of other people based purely on their posts don't you. You're awesome.

    rejected as stupid. You can spew that lie all you want. You don't know anything about guns and you certainly know nothing about how many competitive shooting events cannot be practiced in places like NY due to those "insignificant" restrictions

    why do you think your definition of "significant" matters to someone like me who has constantly demonstrated far far more understanding of firearm use than you have

    you completely failed to address the fact that those who don't care much about a right or exercise it much, will find infringements upon that right to be far less an issue than those who exercise it

    it would be like straights saying bans on gay marriage really aren't a significant infringement on a right

    or whites claiming jim crow laws were minor
