    yeah I guess they could not contemplate that there were going to be anti gun operatives who wanted to try to change what their words really meant in order to allow dishonest politicians to infringe on rights the founders assumed no one would question

    your post was hilarious-you don't need more rounds because its hard to hit a bad guy with a pistol

    last question of the night

    you have admitted you don't need a gun and don't carry one

    where do you get off trying to argue about gun issues with those of us who do and have clearly demonstrated we really understand the issue?

    Good night
    As a citizen, I can speak on anything I like. That's where I get off. Now, explain why I haven't paid for it?

    Courage is the discovery that you may not win, and trying when you know you can lose.

    There is nothing about having courage that calls for your tasks to be noble or worth doing. You simply must have the foresight to know the danger and have the bravery to face it.
    The criminal is not protecting anything, though far less motivated. They overwhelming tend to take the easiest route. So, you seem to be missing the point.

    I don't need 17 dogs. I can do the job with. Two if I want overkill. You don't need 17 as you can do the job with seven easy enough. The point us no violence, but what us required to the job.

    A well trained dog won't. I'm still trying to find a situation where you can't do the job with seven rounds.

    NO. They said what the wanted to say and used the words they used. Period.

    If you do not like it you should advocate the use of Article V of the Constitution rather than to pervert the actual Second Amendment.

    Re: School shooting this morning . . .

    And we STILL dont know the identity of the shooter. Money says he is not a white male student from an upper middle income family.

    Some reports indicate that he may have been inspired to bring the gun to school due to an anti-bullying video shown in the school a few days prior where a female student brought a gun to school and confronted her bullies and they backed off. We'll see....

    While innocent victims lie dead
    No big deal it was only a few it's worth it for me to keep my rights ya know
    They could use this goody so there was a shooting ,innocent people are dead investigate the killer and the victims and move on nothing to see here , just another day in America where people get shot and killed at schools, colleges and movie theaters and navy yards move on.

    Yes. It's called "intellectual honesty".

    One cannot first complain that I have not used definitions from that era and then reject the same.
