    If you're going to purchase a weapon for collection, why not buy one without an ignition mechanism or a vital internal piece? You don't need a fully automatic/semi-automatic/single-shot functioning gun just for looks.
    You telling people what they need is beyond disgusting

    It is a right intended as a right, period. Doesn't matter what your reason is. If you can buy legally, you don't need a reason.

    Oh goodie!!!!! A link!!!!!!

    Unexplained and undiscussed.

    I guess it is too much to ask you to both cite a source and then explain why it is important or relevant?

    You don't need it. It's not a necessity. So how is it disgusting?

    Also, don't call me disgusting. You claimed if someone who had similar beliefs to me ever got into a political office you'd assassinate them.

    Burn Down the Suburbs? - Stanley Kurtz - National Review Online
    This proves nothing. President Obama's former mentors created an organization with that ideology and they presented it to Obama. Now all of a sudden he wants to burn down the suburbs? Almost as outrageous as Michele Bachmann claiming the Muslim Brotherhood is infiltrating the U.S. government because Huma Abedin's father's friend has ties to a company which works with the Muslim Brotherhood.

    It fits Turtles inability to cite and explain his sources to perfection.

    Thanks- if that truly is the case, then we'll all be living in huge ****hole inner-cities eventually. Guess it's time to look for that wilderness I've been talking about.

    Give me a break. You use it with regularity on anyone (male) who disagrees with you, and it has nothing to do with sources and citation.

    you don't need to post on this board
    you don't need a computer
    you don't need a car
    you don't need freedom of speech
    you don't need anything other than food water oxygen and in some cases shelter

    you certainly do not need to tell me what i need

    and NEED has no RELEVANCE to RIGHTS

    and yes, people who would deny our rights based on what THEY FEEL others need are people that armed citizens should see as enemies.
