arma virumque cano (et alia)
from the website:"Finally, a reason for gay people to join the NRA"... Scott Kearnan, BAY WINDOWS
Gay people have long had a reason both to own guns and to join the NRA. Ask the Pink Pistols, if you're confused.
Yeah, the Pink Pistols represent gays like those three blacks who attended the NRA convention represent blacks.
Freedom without the ability to protect oneself is just begging: Please let me be who I am.
Greg, you keep trying to appropriate entire groups of people into your little cause. That's not true. Gays and blacks as a whole don't support your gun-rights agenda. Why, I don't know for sure. You know who else doesn't go along with you? Most gun owners.Gun-rights fanaticism is a lonely business, that's why you guys keep trying to normalize your actions.
Gun-control fanaticism is a lonely business--fixed that for you, Mikeb.
"Freedom without the ability to protect oneself is just begging: Please let me be who I am."This definition of freedom:free·dom [free-duhm] noun 1. the state of being free or at liberty rather than in confinement or under physical restraint: He won his freedom after a retrial. 2. exemption from external control, interference, regulation, etc. 3. the power to determine action without restraint. 4. political or national independence. 5. personal liberty, as opposed to bondage or slavery: a slave who bought his freedom. says nothing about being safe from attack.Was this:"Those who would give up essential Liberty, to purchase a little temporary Safety, deserve neither Liberty nor Safety.-Benjamin Franklin" (http://www.bartleby.com/73/1056.html) what you were thinking of? If it is, you were wrong to use it as it doesn't actually support your contention that teh gunz are all that stand between you and slavery. What stands between you and slavery is the constitution and the laws based on it. The U.S. was not founded on GOD or gunz, it was founded on principles.
"Please let me be who I am."What, you think I or anyone else here wants you to be other than the clown that you are? Perish the thought.
Once again, Democommie, you demonstrate my point while trying to mock me. Freedom without the ability to defend it is merely theoretical, or it's a gift from those in power.
