    Lets get back to taking apart the idiotic premise that people who don't like guns should be able to restrict ownership based on "need"

    YOU implied the whole thing was a KKK event... which is patently false.
    I did not imply anything of the sort...I did however claim the Klan/Neo crowd is welcomed, and that the event changes the range dramatically.

    During this event...Knob Creek is no longer just a Shooting Range. It is well established fact in Bulitt County/Louisville. In this case....I think I might be somewhat more informed than you are.
    Why is that nutsack wearing a US Army uniform with a nazi officers hat? Doesn't even look old enough to buy a pack of smokes, let alone be a higher officer... if he can figure out whether he's supposed to be a Major, or a LT Colonel. This has nothing to do with any arguments here, I'm just irritated by that picture. Stupid **** needs to enlist before he can wear my Uniform.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I am still trying to figure out how comparing Obama to Hitler suggests someone is a Neo Nazi rather than someone who cannot stand Obama (which is a common sentiment from most gun owners I know)

    Nice backtrack, but here are your exact words...

    "it is pretty much a KKK rally" implies strongly that the whole event is dominated by the Klan... so why were there no pics of white men in bedsheets??

    I'm trying to figure out when people are going to stop using Nazi Germany as an example of anything in the US. It's a stupid extreme, and if someone wears nazi regalia, they bring accusations of being a neo-nazi upon themselves.

    true enough-why one would want to emulate one of the greatest examples of historical LOSERS is beyond me

    however, comparing Obama to Hitler does not raise ANY implications that the person insulting Obama is a neo-nazi or a fan of hitler

    rather it suggests they find Hitler to be the scum of the earth and that is why they lambaste Obama with the comparison


    So the claim that this poster comparing the two is evidence of some sort of Klanish or Nazi mentality is beyond stupid-it was an anti nazi as it was anti Obama

    Can you please tell us which weapons that police are allowed to have that a non-LEO civilian cannot legally possess?
