    • sWeed, please excuse my lib pals, for they know not what they do! Look, EVERY body needs to feel superior about sumthin’, hence, they LUV Syrians, and hate guns! But reality is sumthin’ totally different!

      How many people in this country would DIE if the government ever tried to take guns away en masse? Probably a whole lot more than are currently dying now through gun violence!

      Maybe they won’t try that, but what they WILL do is attempt to pass such goofy gun laws that every gun owner becomes a criminal. And then the reality becomes, where the hell you gonna PUT all them crinimals?

      Sounds great in theory, but in actual practice is something else. For example, mommies against drunk driving were very effective. They made very strict DUI laws. As a result, they got not only the real dangerous drunks off the street, but also made criminals out of a whole lot of occasional drinkers! Mainly by lowing the BAC to where you can sniff a beer and you’re done! And the result is that they have basically DESTROYED a whole lotta lives and families by subjecting folks who are NOT dangerous to the system. Yes, the system, the system designed to make a WHOLE lotta money off the poor sap who got stopped with a low BAC. It bankrupts people!

      Lots of people in this country make their FORTUNES off the misfortunes of others, and they are aided and abetted by my unknowing lib pals and do gooders of all stripes! (kinda like what the righties did with marijuana. twenty years for a toke? STILL guys in jail for that!)

      (yes, I know, and I’m ready. here will come all the drunks ruined my life stories, and i’m prepared for them. and they ARE sad, but also sad are the stories of lives ruined by their senseless DUI laws! in my book, a ruined life is a ruined life no matter WHAT the cause! let’s not make felons of all gun owners. but HEY, maybe they can get guys like you and I in treatment of some sort! might work, might not. but at LEAST it’ll make some pseudo “counselors” very rich!)

      Bottom line? Life is tough all over. Don’t go outta your way to make it tougher of folks who don’t deserve it! That simply makes for a meaner society in general!
