Gun Nuts

This discussion thread was locked as off-topic by etherealtruth (a host of the General Discussion forum).

Why are right wing nut jobs so obsessed with the 2nd Ammendment? Have they not witnessed enough carnage caused by guns.When will they finally wise up and ban ALL gun's?And all these trigger happy police need to be disarmed. Pepper spray/ radio is sufficient to deal with citizens.

5. very likely true.

 

Sad picture that something which should be a universal Democratic view can be used as a troll post on a Democratic board, but people who voice pro Reaganomics and pro war views are members in good standing for many years.

Sometimes I just wonder.

9. Keep wondering, because you don't get to decide what's universal and what isn't.

3. I have a long and complicated answer, but ...

... it's too early, and the coffee is just about ready.

Basically, I prefer beer nuts to gun nuts, but am all about options.

Happy third of july!

Is this thread locked yet?

6. By "right wing nut jobs"

 

Do you mean the majority of Americans that support the right to keep and bear arms as guaranteed by the Second Amendment? Or are you referring to the Democrats who drafted the language in the party platform stating "we recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans' Second Amendment right to own and use firearms"?

Feel free to work to ban firearms and keep me posted on how that works for you. And I wholeheartedly disagree with the idea that police should be disarmed.

11. Here's the full quote from the Democratic Party platform

 

We recognize that the individual right to bear arms is an important part of the American tradition, and we will preserve Americans' Second Amendment right to own and use firearms. We believe that the right to own firearms is subject to reasonable regulation.

7. I've never shot a gun, but I support the right for anyone to owe one.

 

To own 10. To own 20.

I don't think if guns were banned that this country would be rid of guns. Didn't work for drugs, don't think it would with guns.

Anyway, Welcome to DU!

Guns are always great debate.

12. Welcome to DU - you should check out this other forum:

http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1262

Gun Control Reform Activism.

You probably don't know but normally posts about Guns are not allowed in GD (this forum here, where you posted), because they tend to devolve into flame wars.

13. Attitude change by the LEO's would go a long way towards fixing that problem

In Europe the cops have a whole different mind set plus they aren't faced with so much fire power as ours are.

Have a wonderful weekend

Please consider reposting in one of the of gun and RBKA groups http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=forum&id=1172

From the SoP for General Discussion:

GUNS

News stories (and related content) from reputable mainstream sources about efforts to strengthen or weaken gun control legislation in any jurisdiction in the United States, national news stories (and related content) from reputable mainstream sources about high-profile gun crimes, and viral political content from social media or blogs that would likely be of interest to a large majority of DU members are permitted under normal circumstances.

Local stories about gun crime and "gun porn" threads showing pictures of guns or discussing the merits of various firearms are not permitted under normal circumstances and should be posted in the Gun Control and RKBA Group.

Open discussion of guns is permitted during very high-profile news events which are heavily covered across all newsmedia.
