    Turtle - an honest question for you that gets to the heart of this issue: what you just accused Boo of is something you also laid into me for too. A person wants to discuss something related to guns or the Second Amendment and because it is not the usual "I love guns and have a big centerfold over my bed of my favorite one" post, you accuse the person of being anti-gun and being against gun owners.

    You did this with me and are doing it with others.

    How does it advance any debate or discussion when you have to falsely paint people with views that they are NOT espousing?

    Your silly bit about a centerolf proves my point 1000 times over. The delicate left wing elite and elite wannabees are so obvious in their motivations. And your silly thread about wanting to tarnish gun rights with dead children was a classic

    That is the problem we have. I mean "certain semi automatic rifles?" We all know who is writing the laws, so it is just an excersise in political control.

    What is a centerolf? I googled it and could find no such thing.

    How does building a memorial to the dead tarnish anyones rights?

    Is this more of your "guns are a pure good" belief system at work again?

    Why are you unable to see different sides to an issue? Why are you unable to see both positives and negatives in an issue?

    Muskets are fine. I know a fellow who uses them.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    No, you're just one more who fights strawmen stereotypes. Dealing with the actual debate before you would be much more difficult.

    Very true. The assault gun ban in Jersey has a lot to do with cosmetics. A semi-automatic rifle that appears to be an assault weapon is banned, it makes no sense.

    I get that, and it's absolutely true, the worst survival chances occur with a sharpshooter in position. Some of my buddies back from theater were telling me that our own guys thought snipers had it easy and were babied.........well until those same snipers cut an ambush short and saved half a platoon anyway.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    That's the worst man. Sorry that happened and thanks for your service, I get that both sides are trying to kill each other but who the hell does that in front of children?
