    And therin lies the issue. Both parties have stuck to a set of talking points for so long that despite the presence of data that opposes their points, they stick to them in some sort of demented show of faith to what they think their constituents want. The ones that come to mind first are gay marriage for the GOP and tighter gun laws for Dems.

    Fortunately, libertarians don't have constituents. I'm for common sense, personal freedom, and results. Therefore, it's easy to see which side of the gun aisle I choose.

    Not a requirement. I'm Christian/spiritual, but I'm definitely not religious. I've openly said that religion is the cause for most of the world's wars throughout history.

    I agree it's not a requirement. It's a perception. I don't want to be perceived as an atheist nor would I want to vote for a candidate that was one. Also, abortion is a little sketchy with some libertarians IMO. That's just me though.
    I wouldn't say religion caused them. I'd say egomaniacal and inevitably flawed human beings cause it with religion as their excuse. There have been many other excuses to go to war ie WWI, WWII, Korea, etc, etc. Religion had nothing to do with any of those wars. It was power, selfishness, money, ideoligies, etc in those cases.

    These anti-gun nuts think that firearm proliferation is going to cause the wild wild west to come alive, where people can openly brandish, wave their pieces in the air, even shoot around like Yosemite Sam. If you opened the gun flood doors, America would turn into Pulp Fiction.

    You seriously have to question the mentality of people who think this, and wonder if they even know one responsible gun owner that may negate all the liberal sensationalism.
    Well, wake up and smell the napalm, because people buy guns to match their outfits and use them for poltical props and to sell sex and koolaide. They buy them to keep up with their peers and as status symbols and play with like toys. They buy them to make themselves seem more important or manly than they really are. Guns are glamorized in the movies and video games and people want to emualte and act out what they see in movies. I've seen people on this forum think they're "good guys" and they're always going to win against the "bad guys". I'm talking about a campaign to change a culture that glamorizes guns and taking guns back to the seriousness of what they really are, weapons that can kill. I thought thats what La Pierre wanted too, until the NRA came out with that Ipod app on the one month the anniversary of the Newtown massacre, enticing four year olds to shoot at little coffins ...and promoting national gun day on the same day that MLK was assainated by a gun. The cynicism, arrogance and sheer lack of common decency of the NRA is repulsive and disgusting.

    Congratulations. You're officially a caricature. Maybe this can be revisited when you land your ass back into some sort of reality.

    Until then, I'm gonna go pick up a turtle shell and use it to knock over a bunch of walking mushrooms, but hopefully it doesn't hit a pipe and bounce back, which will cause me to lose my power-up. Video games so glamorized me to that.

    Loon.

    And there is both a very practical and very excellent reason for that reality.
