Nice one

Tell us again  about how you are responsible gun owners:

In a comment thread last January, a Redditor whose account has since been deleted asked FirearmConcierge if he had faced criminal charges related to firearms trafficking. FirearmConcierge replied that he had not, adding: "There are plenty of dealers out there who make sales without doing background checks. I know dealers that operate exclusively without doing any background checks." He also stated: "I too have been known not to do a background check on some transactions."

You, gun loons, in your Bizarro World way you tell US we "dance on the graves of the dead".

Do you have any fucking idea what that term means?

Well, we have seen that mass shootings are good for gun sales.

  1. "You, gun loons, in your Bizarro World way you tell US we "dance on the graves of the dead".
    Do you have any fucking idea what that term means?"

    Laci, there are trolls on both sides of this issue. The fact that this account has been deleted says a lot. I'm not sure if Redditor deletes accounts for insensitive comments, but we don't really know what side of the issue this person is on. If the account was deleted by the owner, then he or she know their comments were very unacceptable.
    I'm assuming that this person I cite below stands by their words since they haven't been deleted. My question is it ok to make these comments when its "your" side doing it?

    Why so defensive, Greg? You want guns for the mentally ill, guns for felons, guns for everyone. This means, INEVITABLY, that murders, mass murders, will be committed. I merely want YOU and YOUR FAMILY to get the brunt of YOUR POLICIES about guns. I don't want mass murders, but when they come, I want the people on the front lines to be NRA members and their families. I light a candle everytime some gunsuck NRA asshole is wounded. They are my enemy."

  2. "Dress out my balance sheet"--what does that even mean?

  3. I just came across a heartening news item that some places do have standards. And interestingly enough it involves a public comment that sounds very similar to the one I posted earlier.

    "A University of Kansas professor was placed on indefinite administrative leave on Friday for his tweet blaming the National Rifle Association for the Washington Navy Yard shooting and wishing ill will towards members’ children.
    “The blood is on the hands of the NRA. Next time, let it be YOUR sons and daughters. Shame on you. May God damn you,” David W. Guth, an associate professor of journalism, wrote on twitter on Monday after a gunman killed 12 people."

    "(Similarly, police chief Mark Kessler also justified his inflammatory remarks towards liberal politicians who support gun control by calling it a “conversation starter.”)"
