Prototypical mouth-breathing, knuckle-dragging cowardly gun humping ammosexual


Oh...wait........

"Hi I’m Eric Hung, and I know…I look like the stereotypical gun owner.

I’m a biomedical engineer (go Blue Devils) and an entrepreneur who co-founded Educator.com, a math & science video tutorial site for high school and college students.

I guess I just gravitate towards educating people about stuff I love.

And I really love my guns because…they are just fun. I feel not enough people say that reason. Self-defense and hunting are all great, but I love guns because they are fun to shoot, fun to take apart, fun to compete with, and fun to upgrade. They satisfy my engineering impulse and I love the peaceful Zen of shooting.

In my spare time when I’m not Pew-Pew-ing, I play video games, travel, eat fried things, and spend time with my beautiful wife and two cats Pepper & Patches (Trigger and Colt were vetoed)."

2. Yes indeedy

I don't own a gun but, as soon as I can afford the arm lengthing surgery, I'll be saving up for a full-auto .50 cal high-powered assault rifle so I can shoot down commercial airliners and knock baby birds out their nest.

Don't worry about me. I'll get a silencer so no one will even hear the shot. x2


PSA: Violence is a serious problem. Blaming guns for the problem simply because the criminals and crazies aren't crazy enough to use a Vulcan mind-meld deathray to kill people is such a waste.


>> Dr. Arthur Kellerman, stated: “If you’ve got to resist, you’re chances of being hurt are less the more lethal your weapon. If that were my wife, would I want her to have a .38 Special in her hand? Yeah.” (Health Magazine, March/April 1994)

I'm not a libertarian. I favor fully sponsored and paid government provided medical care for every person on US soil. I like the idea of paying for the health and welfare of people more than I like financing hundreds of military bases.

The 2 basic political equations in US politics that need to be held under a microscope: "fear = money" and "an enemy = unity".

Having said that and pointing out that even a broken clock is right twice a day, have a read:
http://www.paulhager.org/why001.htm
Excerpt from Paul Hagar's site---
"My attitudes about guns remained in about the same place through the 1970s. They began to change somewhat beginning in the early 1980s as a result of two world events. Those two events were the Vietnam War and the Afghan War. One of the arguments that had been made against gun control was that an armed citizenry was the final bulwark against tyranny. My response had been that untrained, lightly-armed non-soldiers couldn't prevail against a modern army. I had concluded that the qualitative difference in firepower was such that all of the previous rules of guerilla war no longer applied. Both Vietnam and Afghanistan demonstrated that wasn't true. Repelling an armed invasion is not something that American citizens are likely to face, but the possibility of a despotic government coming to power is not wholly unthinkable. One of the sequellae of Vietnam was the rise of the Khmer Rouge and slaughter of perhaps a million Cambodian citizens. Those citizens, like the Jews in Germany or the Armenians in Turkey, were unarmed and thus utterly and completely defenseless against police and paramilitary. An armed minority was able to kill and terrorize unarmed victims with total impunity.

I began to consider the possibility that since the consequences of a government going bad were so severe, even if there were a social cost to citizens having guns, that cost would be offset by forestalling a despotism from coming to power. I was more willing to entertain the possibility of a tyrannical U.S. government after Reagan was elected. I saw the Reagan Administration exacerbating a number of anti-freedom trends as well as starting several new ones. Projecting those trends into the future and applying my usual pessimism made me consider that the option of having a gun at some point might not be such a bad idea after all."

Tell me this isn't worth reading and considering with what we now have in office running the federal government. All sarcasm and kidding aside, the free exchange of ideas is the cornerstone of our republic. Thank you for sharing, even if you disagree.

10. "....but the possibility of a despotic government coming to power is not wholly unthinkable."


And this:

"Tell me this isn't worth reading and considering with what we now have in office running the federal government."

I'd like to think that at least *some* of the haters are reconsidering their position on the 2A based on the arrival of 45 and all that entails......but like Mr. Hagar I'm a pessimist. Pessimistic based on the religious fervor of The Controllers, as well as the backfire effect.

Re. the good possibility of an armed citizenry prevailing over a tyrannical government I defer to those with military experience, particularly the DU member who aptly pointed out that all an army has to do to win is to *not lose*. Bingo.

3. Whoops. Article's wrong.

This is the problem with sourcing: If you source something unknowingly, you may give bad information.

The statistic the article posts uses the Gun Violence Archive, one of my favorite sites to examine just to see how wrong the information is. GVA routinely doubleposts and double-counts gun violence incidents, and in the case of "Mass shootings", they have a penchant for including something rather unique; "Police bust drug ring" counts as a "mass shooting" because the tags are listed with "Gun" and "4 involved" (which coincidentally will sometimes include police officers themselves), which places it firmly into GVA's "Mass Shooting" category even though no bullet was ever fired.

Contrarily, Mother Jones uses a much more restrictive "Mass shooting" definition. Had the article in question sourced Mother Jones, their clickbait title of "91 mass shootings" would be... "1 mass shooting".

Please remember to actually read your articles and their source information if you want to maintain a somewhat truthful or trustworthy status. (General PSA, not directed at you, Squinch.)

4. Faith-promoting rumors are part and parcel of gun control advocacy

In a way, gun control advocates aren't any different from Fox News/Breibart/One America:

The need to push a particular political line overrides any concern about accuracy.

6. A right-wing cable 'news' channel that makes Fox News look like the BBC...

7. That's good news

There's another cable channel devoid of any real content.

When I win the powerball, I will buy significant shares in one of the companies (comcast, DirecTV, DISH, Cox...) and ask one of the directors (since I may be able to get his attention) why there are hundreds of channels available when 2/3 carry nothing anyone wants to see.

11. OAN is definitely more conservative than Fox News overall but...

it also covers more stories in the straight news segments than any other cable news channel. It's not Trump, Trump, Trump 24/7. I listen to news as background noise and I get tired of constantly listening to stories about Trump. It gets downright depressing.

There's a lot of interesting news happening all over the world believe it or not. I also watch the BBC.

9. In a free and liberal society we're all allowed to decide what fun is.


There's a strong possibility - based on your post - that you have fun making vacuous arguments. Please proceed -- we're a liberal bunch here.
