112. Well for one thing

 

Why on earth would anyone be interested in learning more about guns?

Well, it would keep you from looking exactly like Todd Akin did with his "If itís a legitimate rape, the female body has ways to try to shut that whole thing down." You have an opinion. Good for you. Todd Akin had an opinion too. Your respective opinions are worth the exact same amount for the exact same reason.

Being completely against something that you are totally ignorant about makes you look like a doofus, doesn't do anything to help the cause you believe in, and in this case makes liberals in general look like clueless, knee-jerk ideologues. Good job! I can hear the fence-sitters charging their way towards the Democratic Party already!

Your ignorance is especially telling in your comment above. What exactly should this woman have done instead of "looking for a safe way to kill others"? Before you answer, remember that someone informed would know that a 1 ounce pepper spray would have been illegal for her to possess in New Jersey, as would an electric stun gun. And she already had a cell phone, restraining order and security cameras. Perhaps you could join the compassionate moderator of GCRA and say that she is partially to blame for her own murder because she should have picked a better boyfriend? I haven't seen you advocating for legalizing any other option that might have helped her, yet you seem fine with reducing her available choices. I guess when it comes to women, we need someone with your level of information to decide what choices a woman is allowed to make, and not someone with Todd Akin's level of information...

And as far as "helpless, frantic animals" go, that would seem to be closer to how they die in a slaughterhouse than what happens when a hunter shoots one. Did you think that cows go from some doe-eyed sweetie on a milk carton to slabs in a styrofoam tray without first being herded into a building reeking of blood and death and seeing the animal in front of them executed? Because the last animal I shot died in the wild without even knowing what hit them, and it was for my freezer, not for "sport". It did not spend its life in a feedlot, was never jabbed with antibiotics or growth hormones or sprayed with insecticides, and it actually had a chance to live a life rather than being born for the sole purpose of being executed. And it certainly didn't die the "helpless, frantic" death it would have had if it been chased down and killed by a natural predator.

And yet with comments like yours demonstrating pride in your ignorance, you somehow expect to be taken seriously?
