    Evidently it can get you killed. I'd say that the Charlie Hebdo types of the world are demonstrating courage in the face of a threat.
    “In America we have a two-party system,” a Republican congressional staffer told a visiting group of Russian legislators. “There is the stupid party. And there is the evil party. I am proud to be a member of the stupid party. Periodically, the two parties get together and do something that is both stupid and evil. This is called: bipartisanship."

    Millions if not billions of AKs are in circulation.
    But they seem to be targeting the AR. Funny I find it.
    It takes a special kind of ... well, something I guess, for one's primary concern about this incident is how it may potentially affect their precious guns.

    Hell, I like guns, but the way some people treat them as fetish objects is disturbing.

    Both sides like to CLAIM the primary intent is some kind of political message or some noble cause of "free speech". Both instances are basically full of ****. While I don't doubt it's part of the intent for both, the primary intent is simply to anger, piss off, mock, and thumb their nose at those they have an issue with...be it muslims or the religious in general or christians.

    Much like I often view many of those instances as extremely chlidish and juvenile, I see this particular one similarly. However, just like those others, they absolutely should have the right to do it with an expectation that they won't have ILLEGAL consequences ventured upon them for it.

    It is ENTIRELY unreasonable to expect to do an action like this and expect there to not be negative consequences.

    HOWEVER....

    While it's naive to think that illegal consequences can't happen, it's at least reasonable to assume that they shouldn't.

    Like so many instances where illegal violence occured....creating such a situation does not "invite" or "cause" violence or suggests the person "had it coming", but it absolutely is an action that increases ones *RISK* of having violence perpetrated against them. Pointing that out isn't being an "apologist" or "victim blaming" but is simply dispassionately dealing with reality.
    Agreed and well said. Sadly your explanation is impossible for a lot of people to grasp.

    You can start a thread on sharia law if you like. I guess you're trying to bait me.

    It's not because something can get you killed that it is brave.

    Personally I don't care for Charlie Hebdo, Geert Wilders, Communists, Fascists, etc. But they are all entitled to voice their opinions. And fundamentalist muslims are entitled to that too. But nobody is entitled to engage in terrorism and no legal act can be considered a "provocation" or "bait" to terrorism.

    Calling guns a fetish is nothing more than another attack on gun owners rights. Just another lefty try at an insult when debate is over the lefts head.
    Google M855 ammo ban. Then put 1 and 1 together and see if you understand.

    I'm much more inclined to believe that Charlie Hebdo's depictions of Muhammad were intended as a legitimate statement of free expression, as opposed to Pam Geller's typical display of rank bigotry. While neither deserves a violent response, I consider the source whenever someone claims they're on a free speech crusade.

    Some people have guns on the brain.

    Others have so-called same-seks-marriage on the brain.

    Everybody can have their hobby I guess.

    I'm attacking your rights? Oh, cry me a ****ing river.

    This is not a second amendment issue. Stop trying to make it one.

    Look deeper. I have race cars on the brain much more. I wouldn't call it a fetish though.
    So instead of worrying about me, worry what tact the government will take in the wake of this false flag.
