    Yes, I do accuse you of hyperbole-you made the statement that the NRA is the most vile and disgusting organization in existence, which means you think its worse than nambla (an organization in existence).

    So you see how easy it is to dismiss your post as hyperbole.

    some of those hymnals are pretty heavy and a well thrown King James Bible could deter some of the most hardened gun packing heathens

    It is a better solution than opening fire in front of children in a church. I am sorry, but your attitude toward guns and other like it on this thread are a embarrassment to gun owners like myself. This is what is turning people off from gun ownership. You act like you cannot wait to blow someone away. Gun owners are collectors, sportsman, and hunters, not wanna be cops itching to pull the trigger on a criminal.

    The NRA was the topic of this thread...and the organization discussed as it pertains to guns. NAMBLA does not belong in this discussion. This is hyperbole.

    Fries and Gucci bags worked exceedingly well in the Omaha mall shooting, and the Nairobi mall shooting.

    wow this is getting funny

    so some armed active killer comes to your church and he lights up the metal detector. and what are you going to do-Hey Klebold and Harris, Lanza or Roof-GO HOME. and then he shoots you down and takes out most of the people in the parish but what the hell, that's better than 3-4 of the church goers shooting the killer before he kills most of the children.

    your hatred of the concept of self defense is pathetic and your claims about gun ownership are dismissed as being clear nonsense.

    your comment about good people being armed on the small chance there might be an active shooter is nothing but silliness

    yeah and when some hater of gun rights and the organization that helps promote those rights claims that the NRA is the most vile organization-ahead of groups that want to ban honest people being armed or a group that promotes pedophiliac relationships-it is accurate to point out your hysterical comments as being idiotic.

    When i worked in the state legislature for three years recently, much of my job was what we used to call "cleaning up behind the elephant". What that means is that the legislature passed law that now has come back to bite them in the ass as it did something not intended or foreseen. So now we had to change it .

    If indeed open carry was intended to correct the sort of "oops" moment you just described - that needs to be corrected.

    Twice when I worked for the legislature the capital grounds were visited by about two or three score of men wearing came and sporting rifles on their backs and pistols on their hips. One of these took place a short time after Sandy Hook. Dozens of school trips visiting the capital saw kids crying and panicked as they saw these men with visions of Sandy Hook in their heads. They left.

    I really don't think we need a bunch of grown men in camp playing army running around pretending that "my ##$$ is bigger than yours and here it is in your face like it or not and you better just damn well get used to it cause I ain't going away.". Do we really need that sort of nonsense in our society.

    You want to have a gun in your house? Okay my me.
    You want to have a gun in your place of business? Okay my me.
    You need a gun while you drive in your car between the two? Okay by me.

    But I view this open carry issue like viewing somebody else reproductive organs. Sorry - but keep them in your pants hidden and I do not want to see them in public. Get a CCW and carry out of the public view. And if your jacket slips open and somebody sees part of a pistol - we can deal with that short of changing the damn law so you can brandish a rifle on your back in public.

    And I have no problem with carrying weapons. Get a CCW and don't flash it in public just to show how manly you are and whose is bigger and badder. Grow up for heavens sake.

    Fair enough...LOL. If you want to be lumped into a "Ted Nugent" gun owner, so be it. I have more class. You embarrass the majority of gun owners. Even our returning Vets from active combat do not make the silly statements that you do...LOL..and they actually have used a gun in self defense. They never brag about it like the willfully ignorant do. I am not sure what I would do in the event of a break in, it has never happened. But I am not going to sit around talking about taking a person's life with my 9mm...with a gleam in my eye. It is a personal matter where a decision will be made in the event it happens. This subject is brought up often in the lounge of the gun club my husband and I belong to...we laugh at people who make these statements. I don't want to be broad brushed as a gun nut because I own a gun.
