Exactly right! Guns are things. Birth control, abortion and gay marriage are actions not things.
Birth control is a thing. Well, except for actions like the rhythm method- which is sanctioned by the Catholic Church.
Things, actions - it's banning we're talking about.
Ok, let's talk about banning in the context of this tweet. Do you believe all these bans would work, or just the last one?
All bans work - not perfectly, but they do work. Otherwise why would you guys make such an effort to fight against them?
Yes, they do work at stopping good people from getting those guns. They don't work at lowering violent crime or murder rates. So what's the intent of the gun banners? If it's the former, then yes, they can pat themselves on the back for raging success that gun bans are.
If the guns aren't there, they can't be stolen from irresponsible gun loons (and used to kill) who don't take care enoughto keep their guns secure.
The gun loons hypocrisy: don't ban guns, ban abortion. Just break laws you don't agree with.
Right on! Don't ban any of those things.You don't suppose Nick thinks those first three bans wouldn't work, but the fourth one would, do you? That would be kind of ironic.
Who is this guy? Never heard of him. I'm cool with not banning any of them.
No inconsistency here--I'm opposed to banning any of those things.
How lucky am I? On my blog all the gun nuts are social liberals (or libertarians).But we know that most are right-leaning, Republican voting bigots, don't we?
But we know that most are right-leaning, Republican voting bigots, don't we?Actually, I think the existence of these notional "gun nuts" is a silly myth. But yes, the dumber-than-a-sack-of-pig-shit-encrusted-anvils do indeed "know" what you claim.
I'm sure you "know" it. Have you asked yourself why they don't tend to come around here? It's because you "know" that most of them are illiterate, is that it?
Actually, they do and have come around here, but they usually don't last as long as some of you more persistent liberal types.
But they are not "most", are they?
On my blog they may not be most, but in the real world I think they are.
On my blog they may not be most, but in the real world I think they are.I have to admit, Mikeb, I never expected you to recognize and acknowledge the disconnect between your blog and the real world. Good for you. That's an important first step.
