    I've probably been in too many Waffle Houses and truck stops. Until I was 20 I thought "hon" was a waitressing term meaning "customer".


    We "dear" and "hon" and "sweetie" and "buddy" each other to death around here... it doesn't necessarily mean anything unless it's said in that particular tone, if you know what I mean... then it's short for "bless your heart!"

    Well I sorta started it. No harm meant, just a habit of speech.

    Apologies to any and all...

    Re: NRA executive suggests slain Charleston pastor to blame for gun deaths

    Heck I got called "boy" the other day, by an older lady, and I'm pushing 50.


    When I was 20 it would have pissed me off.... now I smiled the entire rest of the day.


    It's a Southern thing y'all...

    They are probably a rare collector gun by now. I am holding out for the new Civilian Drone Program....you can have them hover over you, surveying the scene and then strike when necessary.... j/k This is an interesting article to chew on...I am not a fan of the site at all...but sometimes you find a article that is not slanted far left. A heavily regulated gun and only 2 deaths in 80 years.

    Fully automatic guns in the US are highly regulated, and regulation works

    Well see the thing is, one of the biggest pushes in recent years has been to severely restrict if not ban "assault rifles". The problem is the gun control folks pushing this have a VERY broad definition of "assault rifle" or "assault weapon" that includes MANY common semi-auto rifles, some of which are mere "varmit guns" (ie for shooting rats and similar small pests or for target shooting).

    The fact is that "assault RIFLES" as a category are very rarely used in crime; in fact more people are beaten to death with bare hands or clubs than are murdered with ANY type of rifle.

    So it's a made-up problem with a needless solution.


    This sort of thing makes those of us on the other side shake our heads and wonder if the anti's even know what their own agenda IS... or if maybe it isn't about crime at all.

    Maybe, for the leadership and politicians, it is more about control. Seems that way sometimes.

    Again none needed.....I was torn between "Darlin" and "Hon". I feel bad that you have to apologize since it was a direct response between us.

    I agree...I think some get the appearance of the gun mixed up with its lethal qualities. I used to feel that way too...until I realized that my gun is considered a semi assault weapon...a 9mm. I chose it because of how smooth it is ...no kick, soft trigger, not real loud, etc. It felt the safest for me to use. I don't think semi assaults are any more dangerous than any other. They look scarier than they are. Many hunters use them...the AR-15 is very popular for hunters. I think a shot gun feels the scariest. The problem..this is a pissing contest between the extremes. The right has more leverage because of the Constitution is on their side. The left uses emotion and "what if's"...both if combined could be useful to gun regulation.

    no what you are talking about is a guestimation what a person or deity who may or may not have existed might have theoretically believed. I am basing my position on facts, and current events

    if you believe in God that God exists in the mall, the spa, the car lot or a church. why a church is any different it escapes me. A person competent to carry a gun in a mall is equally competent in a church. That he might offend some people matters not to me.
