    No not at all.

    I just don't think a bunch of Joe Bob's with HS educations running around with handguns and a 5th grade sense of justice is a good thing.

    I own guns in case someone like you gets in a position of power and decides anyone who isn't a starbucks swilling liberal is an "idiot" and needs to be forcibly disarmed.

    Okay, so you don't think that you have a right to choose whether or not your neighbor can carry a gun to protect herself.

    I understand that you are bigoted against "Joe Bobs", but I'm glad that you don't think that your narrow mindedness gives you some kind of right to choose whether or not your neighbor may or may not carry her gun for self-protection.

    In other words you are like lots of rich liberal elitist gun banners. You don't trust anyone who isn't a rich elite yuppie. You look down on the blue collar workers, the common man etc. Liberals are all for the "common man" at least they pretend to be but when you cut away the BS facade-what we see is seething elitism and a total disdain for the poor or lower middle classes. its like assholes like Cuomo wanting to disarm the masses while he is protected by heavily armed guards

    My guess would be #2. In fact, I suspect one specific individual. I wonder if the mods have access to any such data as the IP addresses from which all the fraudulent “guest” votes were cast?

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Oh yes TurtleDude I had no doubt you owned plenty of guns after our first conversing.

    We see the negative stories all the time, but its is much harder to measure successes of owning a gun. Millions of Americans own guns, and responsibly own them.

    You're deluded. People like you being armed is what hurts the poor and middle class.
