    Re: Will Criminals Still Have Access to Guns if the Law Takes Away the Good Guy's Gun

    I have a solution to the gun problem.

    Everybody who turns in their guns right away, gets $1 million per gun. After the grace period, you will only get $100K, after that, you only get $10K.

    You can keep your guns if you want to. If its worth giving up a million bucks, then you love that gun so much I trust you with it. You'll consider it too valuable to leave lying around. You'll also feel like a nitwit but that's your problem, not mine. If you get your hands on a gun years from now, and you're thinking "gee, I'll rob that 7-11, they've got at least $850.33 inside", you'll probably just go get your $10K instead.

    Look at all the wealth that would create. We'd have a booming economy with all these new millionaires coming on line and nobody will use a valuable gun to commit petty crime. A sfe, secure America.

    I'm a ****ing genius.

    My initial thought is that if someone comes after you with that much firepower, you're either in a Bruce Willis movie, lying, or you have some really serious lifestyle choices to rethink.

    Tell you what, if you find a time this has actually happened, and then we'll talk.
    Hey, I just experienced an epiphany.

    You and your fellows only imagine sunshine and flowers. That's why you can't imagine why guns are needed at all!

    You don't have a failure of imagination, you have a psychedelic imagination!

    Worse, others will think all Democrats want to introduce legislation to that effect.
    This will be the third time in as many days that I've felt it necessary to correct the faulty belief by my opponents, usually Progressives, that a majority is needed to rule the day and prevail in any particular contest.

    Many will object that "few people actually believe in radical Islam," and we heat things along the lines of "only 10 percent of Muslims are radicals/sympathetic to the radicals," and that "only a miniscule number of Americans/Westerners buy into radical Islam so the danger is overblown."

    But history is not made by taking a vote at every important moment. Only 1/3 of the American colonists wanted independence from Great Britain in 1776. The Jacobins were a minority of Frenchmen in 1789, and the Bolsheviks a minority of Russians in 1917. The quota on imported sugar in America today is not there because it has the broad support of Americans but because of the political influence of a small minority of sugar growers in Louisiana. Less than half of Americans even vote in most elections, and the more local the election is the fewer people vote. History and outcomes are made by determined and well-organized minorities.

    So it is with radical Islam. It matters not a whit that most Muslims are not radicals. If the average Muslim moderates are not willing to stand up and demand that Muslim Brotherhood influence be purged from Muslim organizations, then the radicals win, no matter how few their numbers. Consider the fate of Molly Norris, the Seattle cartoonist who organized the "Everybody Draw Mohammed" day in 2010 as a protest against censorship. After threats she canceled the contest and apologized. No matter, the threats continued until she has changed her name and gone into hiding on the advice of the FBI. There was and is no support from Muslim groups, or hardly anyone outside of a few conservatives, for that matter, for the concept of free speech.
    But, in this case substitute DEMOCRAT for Muslim in the text above.

    A majority is seldom needed to decide an outcome such as the one we are talking about.

    Tell me when a theater was shot up before Aurora.

    When had 19 hijackers slammed jetliners into skyscrapers before 9/11?

    The 9/11 Commission Report blamed the successful attack on a failure of imagination.

    Wouldn't that indictment also apply to your shortsighted view?
    So, you want a rifle at home, so you can deal with a threat outside your home? If Giffords had a rifle at her home, she would still have been shot. If ANYONE in the theater in Aurora had a rifle, they still would've been shot. If anyone in ANY of the hijacked planes had a rifle at home, 9/11 would still have happened.

    Please, I can do this all night.
