    I would suggest fear - but it could be they take this poll as meaning handguns as opposed to all guns.
    A revolver is not a semi-automatic. I don't think it matters how many shots you want to take. The less bullets you plan on expending the more dangerous I think you are going to be anyway....to yourself or others. Always watch out for the guy who says...can I buy A bullet. Or can I buy 2 bullets? And if he says 3 bullets...it is probably for that guy that his wife cheated with.
    The Crowd is not the sum of its parts.

    Maybe. But the reason for the right is largely obsolete. While I have no problem with hunters have weapons, or people in dangerous situations ahving them, I am bothered by the mythical reverence we give guns in this country.

    As I said elsewhere, advice from you about fighting tyranny is like advice from a fox on how to secure a henhouse.

    Assuming that the asterisked-out word is what I suppose it to be (a vulgar reference to solid digestive waste), then I think most of us can agree that it is entirely appropriate to use that word in describing NYC, and has been for quite some time now.

    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    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.

    How we view guns. It's almost religuous.

    In some cases you are correct. I have many friends that view their guns as almost a part of the family.
    I do not go that far, but you would be hard pressed to convince me to ever give up my right to keep and bear arms.

    That too... a bit rediculous IMHO, but that is the way they feel. I know people that feel that way about their bibles too.
