    I agree it is boring....

    but....... I have my own opinions on guns and what they are used for.

    They are my views and I will never agree with many on this board regarding guns and their use of guns.

    I do not shy away from the subject. I would love to debate others if I had the time and others had the interest.

    Allright..debate via PM if you feel it is that important to argue, and have no hope of swaying the other person....................... I can tell both of you from experience you are pi$$ing into the wind!

    or else,

    I will start a seperate thread on: masturbating moms breast feeding their 8 year old children before picking up their guns and making a trip to the nearest abortion clinic, to use the tool (evil, or not) to stop the anti's or the pro-lifers (whatever you choose).

    good lord, certainly we have more going on in our lives than such useless debate. I think it's time to enjoy the joke for what it was (or get a sense of humor) and just move on already. sheesh. that was not the intent of this thread. yet SOMEONE always has to turn it that way. So predictable. (yawn).

    well if we are going to start the "debate via pm, count me in, I am sick and tired of whiny people messing with my right to keep and bear arms. If you don't like the 2nd amendment, there are plenty of planes at the airport leaving foranother country that is not so great as ours. USA love it or get the **** out.

    Yes.. I am already the #### out, as you so eliqently put it. But I can still have an opinion on guns........

    I have no interest in PM'ing anyone about anything.

    I do believe I have the right to say what I think about a subject, but as I perdicted in an earlier post, people get VERY anxious and upset when talking about guns and their use.

    And by the way, I still think comparing a hammer and a gun is silly. No matter who tries to make the argument.

    JMP, if it's any consolation, I'm with you all the way. If guns weren't legal in the first place, we wouldn't "need" guns to protect us from the people who misuse them!

    But I agree, this thread is boring. As much as anyone argues their point, they aren't going to sway anyone to their side. At least not people who feel passionate enough about the subject to post a thread here.

    I like to talk about guns. They are still relatively new things, having only been around for about a hundred years. Guns are like swords in that they are double-edged and can be used for both offense and defense. You watch enough chuck norris and charles bronson movies and it's only natural your gonna act like monkey see, monkey do. I fear guns right up until the time I have one in my hand. Then the fear goes the other way.
    If I ever got hard up to have a gun, I would just wait around until someone who has one with an inferior action potential sodium ion gate losses theirs to someone else with superior action potentials. Even then, I wouldn't hold it up to my eye because I am a nurse (in 2004) and swore not to harm. I'm sorry :-(

    JMP my point was to say that if you don't like how things are run here leave, or in you case being in Canada don't tell me how my country should be run. I hear this same crap at work by a Vietnamese Dr and aDr from India. My very point was if their country was so great why are they here. As for those that think discussions on guns are boring why are you reading the thread? Believe it or not I didn't meanto offend anyone. I have reallystrong feelings regarding gun control.

    This thread was started NOT as a forum for a gun control debate. It showed a joke that I received that I thought was funny. It was NEVER intended to start a gun debate in any way. Some people take themselves way too seriously, and I should have predicted the outcome. Please don't jump down someone's throat for calling your debate boring- those people, after all, got the joke and responded appropriately before you guys got on this gun debate tangent and took over. If you want to have a serious debate, by all means, feel free to start your own thread. And as for why I'm reading this thread- it's because I started it.
