    they had to change when the Democraps adopted Gun control in the 1960s in order to prove that Dems were not "soft on crime" as Nixon effectively argued. Gun control allowed the Dems to dishonestly claim they were

    1) doing something about crime

    2) without actually calling for tougher sentences on black street criminals and thus upsetting one of their major constituencies

    3) and if it hurt gun owners-the Dems didn't care

    when th NRA mobilized to fight these idiotic gun control measures which had no intent to actually stop crime, the Dems pushed more gun control to punish the NRA

    I worry about someone who considers the truth to be "bullying and intimidation"

    I don't see where anyone is calling for government to ban these “smart guns”. I certainly have not.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    only to people who are ignorant

    a safe gun is the following

    1) one that safely handles the ammunition for which it is chambered
    2) and only fires when the trigger is pulled

    all of my guns are thus "Safe"

    If gun enthusiasts value 'rights' then they should oppose those who are harassing her and realize/recognize how creepy and dangerous THAT behavior is. What will responses be if she ends up being shot or harassed further as a result? Why? Because she thinks a product is beneficial and good and so she sells it?
    was there any real proof of harassment?

    How did he get the charge? Drinking during the hunt, failure to follow hunting law, or was it a negligent shot? I'm curious because I've seen a few hunting accidents without any charges filed, things can happen when you go on a hunt and fortunately laws do allow for accidents for the most part.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. — Belinda Padilla does not pick up unknown calls anymore, not since someone posted her cellphone number on an online forum for gun enthusiasts. A few fuming-mad voice mail messages and heavy breathers were all it took.

    Then someone snapped pictures of the address where she has a P.O. box and put those online, too. In a crude, cartoonish scrawl, this person drew an arrow to the blurred image of a woman passing through the photo frame. “Belinda?” the person wrote. “Is that you?”
    It's quite literally the lede of the NY Times piece in the OP.

    When the engineer isn't someone with firearms experience, it's kind of hard to put any kind of faith behind the engineer.
