    Personally I truly hate the colour scheme.. Can't see anything to like in that combination that would appeal but then I'm not a girl (even if girls fit the stereotype and like all things pink)

    I'm not making an obscure claim, the history of the NRA and gun owners demonstrates complete disregard for any type of control over firearms, when logic would dictate gun owners would be the most responsible voices. You have already run away, and I don't expect an answer, only more ridicule.

    By saying that I am being hysterical when I am clearly not.

    Should we spend the next several posts arguing about what hysterical means.

    As you like to say, this isn't about the greatness that is independent_thinker2002.

    It's okay to disagree without sorting to wild accusations about those who disagree with you and their mental state.

    What is your hypocritical logic behind your position. Thanks.
    Yes, but way more than twice the kids play football as opposed handle guns unsupervised. It's too bad we don't have data for both to compare deadly accidents per incident of playing football/handling a firearm.

    Fact: At least 99.99996% of legally owned guns in America were not used to shoot anyone today for any reason. Sounds pretty responsible to me.

    There are something over 200 million guns in the USA. There around 83 gun-related deaths a day nationwide in a country of 300 million people, counting everything: murder, self-defense, suicide, accident, police shootings.
    (over half are suicides, btw, and less than 3% are accidental shootings.)

    The are over 110 automobile related deaths every day in the US. Where are all the calls for banning automobiles? Why aren't people required to lock their deadly automobile in a thick plate-steel garage with a combination lock, with a child-proof ignition lock, and required to take out all the fuel overnite and store in seperately in a locked container? (/irony)

    What's the difference between cars and guns?

    A car lets me travel easily. A gun helps me protect my life and liberty.
    Gun ownership is a right specifically protected in the Constitution; car ownership isn't.
    Why do anti-gunners think that 1st Amendment Freedom of Speech is an individual right, 1st Amendment Freedom of Religion is an individual right, but the 2nd Amendment isn't?

    I dunno....let's ask the Founders what they thought:

Jefferson's "Commonplace Book," 1774_1776, quoting from On Crimes and Punishment, by criminologist Cesare Beccaria, 1764

    "No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms."

    Thomas Jefferson, Proposed Virginia Constitution, 1776, Jefferson Papers 344.

    JAMES MADISON
    "Americans [have] the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the citizens of other countries whose governments are afraid to trust their people with arms."

    SAMUEL ADAMS
    "The Constitution shall never be construed to prevent the people of the United States, who are peaceable citizens from keeping their own arms . . ."


    "A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves ... and include all men capable of bearing arms."
    "To preserve liberty, it is essential that the whole body of people always possess arms..."
    Richard Henry Lee - Senator, First Congress

    PATRICK HENRY
    "The great object is that every man be armed. Everyone who is able may have a gun."

    "Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction, and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?"

    BTW, I'd buy her one of the new M4 pattern (flat top) AR's. An ACOG sight to go with it would be nice, though they are pricey. Don't go cheap on magazines either, crappy mags are the chief cause of malfunctions in AR's.

    Cool Re: To buy or not to buy...

    RE: OP -

    I don't like that particular shade of pink, but otherwise it's quite cute.
    I like it!
