I understand that you've been very rational about this (and in general on the board), so I apologize if it sounds like I'm attacking you personally. But I think it's people with your mindset that bring the pro-gun/pro-2nd Amendment support from a fringe group of 'gun nuts' to a large enough part of the population where it's accepted as almost a republican/democrat debate.

You don't understand why someone would have different types of guns. That should be your question and you should have stopped there. Instead, you created some nonsensical string of words together in an attempt to make some sort of a point. The data are clear, the majority of people support background checks, waiting periods, and an assault weapons ban in addition to other safety measures. Whether one is a gun owner or not, most people are for common sense legislation. We need people with political courage to start running on these types of issues and who can speak to people from a position of common ground.


Fine, I'll bite. Why do you need 6 different types of guns?

First, no one needs a gun. Second, it doesn't matter how many I have. Third, I have a 12 gauge for me and 20 gauge for my son. When he gets older we'll sell the 20 gauge. I have a small caliber rifle for hunting small game and large caliber for hunting large game. I have small caliber single action 22 revolver that was my fathers and I have a model 1911 that is mine. I like to target shoot with the handguns. Shooting the 22 is a lot different than shooting the 45. I use the 12 gauge for shooting clays and for hunting.

hunting is fun so we have to keep those guns

doing blow off a hooker's [expletive] is also fun but that's frowned upon

I used to enjoy Four Lokos and taking a full size toothpaste with me on trips. Some idiots screwed that up, so now I can't.

Until your post, so did I, and I felt even more uncool than I actually am.

Another child (11-year-old) in Montgomery committed suicide with a family gun that was not secured. That's two kids in the last three months in the county I live in.

I don't understand....two people got into a fight and one decided to run over pedestrians while the other started firing at random people?

perhaps:

Fight begins
One guy pulls a gun
Other guy takes off in truck, rams people trying to escape
Gun guy shoots randomly toward truck

Yeah thats what I was thinking, but still...who starting firing off a gun in broad daylight in downtown Manhattan? Like even if you are crazy enough to shoot someone, in the interest of not going to jail or getting killed yourself, that doesnt seem like the time or location to starting firing away at someone.

so it was the police shooting?

New York (CNN)There are fatalities after a truck drove the wrong way down the West Side Highway bike path for several blocks Tuesday afternoon, striking several people, according to sources at the New York Police Department.

The driver exited the vehicle with what appeared to be a gun and was shot by police, the sources added. The individual is in police custody and is being taken to the hospital for treatment.

lots of reports of the truck driving "the wrong way down the bike path" when in fact there is no right way for a truck to drive down a horsefeathering bike path.
