    Most say no.


    I seem to recall this Constitution thingy that was supposed to protect the minority FROM the tyranny of the majority that the Founders rightly feared.
    Yes it does. And when their rights are violated I will join you in anger and protest.

    I never said it was. I would say that for most it definitely should be as it serves to intimidate fellow American as part of a right wing strategy confirmed right here by a gun lobby advocate.

    I never gave a definition. they define themselves by their statements. They do that without permission from anyone - and that includes both you and I.

    Hay I think you're getting a little conspiracy-theory-ish with that, to be honest. You're taking one random internet person's words and extrapolating a "right wing strategy" as a result...


    I must have missed the memo...

    That is not the America that encourages open discussion and the exercise of others rights. It should never get to that point and such displays of extremism should be stopped with legislation from the duly elected representatives of the American people acting under the authority of the law and the Constitution.

    Why the continual vitriolic name calling Turtle?

    I simply take what is provided and given to me.

    I suspect that Crimefree missed the memo or was absent for the seminar on how to hide the agenda and simply said something which he should not have.
