    I really don't think they are worried about what anyone can do to him. They are more worried about what he could do with a staple or a ball point pen. It's their ballpark, their rules. I won't be alone. No worries. Fear has a scent. Some humans are VERY perceptive to it. That's the scent I want to smell from HIM. Not the other way around.

    I have only purchased 4 new guns in the last 10 years.

    Thunder, one would think so, hey? But honestly, and trust me on this, an honest man can get a gun easier illegally than he can legally. That holds true for the criminal. Ii would venture to say that even if the criminal COULD obtain a gun legally, they would opt for the illegal purchase because it's just much easier to do. And getting one legally ain't THAT hard. But illegal guns are still easier to obtain.

    That's the irony. The guy who wants to do it right has to go through the line. The guys who don't give a **** about rules and regulations goes to the streets. No line in the street and it's usually cheaper. Sad but true bro.

    Gotcha. Those loose cannons are a real bitch, you never know what they're gonna do.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Re: Guns

    I am focused and alert anytime I am in the presence of a convict or a parolee. Complancecy and comfort can make you late for dinner.

    Some of the coolest people I have ever met were inmates. That is, half their brain was cool as ice water. But I always approach it that the other half of their brain was plotting to do what criminals habitually do. i sometimes hate their character but I always respect their mental capabilities. many are smarter than me. Knowing that, however, gives me a leg up.

    It's a lot different these days though. I no longer am willing to fight, bully, or run after anybody. I'm this far from the gate. I just want to do my job as good or better than anyone around me, go home, and come back to work the next day. I want to do that until I can close on my beach property in Tarpon Springs. Then, all those ghetto piss stenched county jail elevators and and government disinfectant hallways can kiss my ass goodbye.

    we on the other hand can prove that guns are used all the time to stop criminal attacks and that gun laws that target honest people do infringe on our rights
    Then you should listen to what the claims are. Please point to where I said banning guns would end crime.

    And no, you can't prove that. You think you can, because a few causal relationship error filled reports tell you that, but they don't hold up (hint look up causal relationship fallacy).

    So, to recap, you inaccurately guess at my claim, which is odd because it means you have either not read what you quoted, or the meaning escapes you. And secondly, you don't know the weakness in your own claim.

    But, go ahead, throw an insult about how dumb everyone else is.

    Re: Guns

    You assholes quit being assholes. We're all cool peep's here. A difference of opinion on guns is no reason not to go have a beer. Lighten the **** up or I'm gonna hold my breath! No wait..... Nevermind.

    But, seriously, I try to keep my declarations within my area of expertise. I would recommend everyone consider doing the same. Know where you are at on the "topic authority" food chain and unless yo are at the top, realize there might be something cool you can learn. No need for ill feelings. Seriously?

    Tomorrow I'm gonna wear my referree shirt. Buncha Bozo's! LOL!

    did your just fancyfy all your words and use so many so to do the exact same thing if you had just said "no turdle dude your wrong"


    never get why liberals think talking more like a college grad makes their point more or less valid.

    I always enjoy the art of rhetoric and writing elequence regardless of one's political lean.

    True, some folks can say in 10 words or less what it takes some others all day to say. I get that. But what fun is that on a long trail ride?
