    I never said it did. I was simply commenting on what you said.

    Is it really that hard to believe? There are assholes in the gun enthusiast ranks, just like in every other large group.

    With the shoddy reporting of things these days, and the amount of people caught making stuff up anything is possible. If it is true, those guys should have been ashamed of themselves and maybe instead of berating her should have explained the implications of this crap gun, and the potential issues she faces by backlash from the firearms purchasing base........respectfully.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    And there are anti gun assholes who will claim to be pro gun to POE the pro rights movement

    Yes, there are also people with agendas who create a story and many got caught. Instantly coming to mind is the Tawana Brawley incident with Al Sharpton, some skepticism is healthy I suppose.

    Typical conservative reaction. They don't like it so it shouldn't be allowed to exist, never mind what anyone else thinks. Fear-driven, ignorance-driven, knee-jerk mob-rule over-reaction.
    Jesus. How can you say you're in favour of gun rights and then try to limit these kinds of guns? You're either in favour of individual rights or you're in favour of government interference. This is why I've been liberal all my life. It's easy for me- I believe everyone has rights. Conservatives believe rights are dealt out to those deserving them.

    Well, here's a definition of cyber bullying.....

    "... Examples of what constitutes cyber bullying include communications that seek to intimidate, control, manipulate, put down, falsely discredit, or humiliate the recipient. The actions are deliberate, repeated, and hostile behavior intended to harm another. ...<snip>.....It may also include public actions such as repeated threats, sexual remarks, pejorative labels (i.e., hate speech) or defamatory false accusations), ganging up on a victim by making the person the subject of ridicule in online forums, hacking into or vandalizing sites about a person, and posting false statements as fact aimed a discrediting or humiliating a targeted person...."


    You'd be hard pressed to prove that isn't exactly what LaMidRighter was doing as he repeatedly tried to discredit and insult my intelligence for simply disagreeing with him....on a thread about intimidation and bullying by gun enthusiasts, no less.

    The only thing he's proven is that he is in fact a bona fide cyber bully.
