    Dang that argument ticks me off :mad:

    'evil' implies an inanimate object has a soul that can choose right and wrong. A brick can be used for destruction as a weapon or it could be used to construct an orphanage. The brick doesn't care.

    Same thing with a gun. A gun is a tool and nothing more. Don't give it any more credit than it deserves.

    Even some of us who like guns tend to give them more credit then they deserve. Just because you have a gun doesn't mean you are equipped to handle a bad situation.

    Someone posted not long ago that a co-worker carried a gun but never practiced or had even shot a single round through his weapon. Just because I own a fishing pole doesn't mean I know how to catch fish.

    Here endith the rant. Whew, I feel better now :p

    What cracked me up was the retired Jersey officer that was explaining, less people should have guns so when he shows up to a crime scene it doesn't take longer to sort out who is armed and who the bad guys are......glad he's retired. Apparently our liberty needs to come at the expense of making his job easier, never mind the fact that more law abiding citizens actually make his job easier.

    CMON! I put black micarta stocks on my gun and load it with Flying Ashtrays. I want it to be evil. I like to think that it's evil.

    Interesting comments on that poll.

    Some people are just plain ignorant.

    The anti gun people should have to wear signs, so if anything happened to them no one would waste any ammo saving an idiot

    The pro-gun and anti-gun comments have one thing in common, fear. The difference is who they fear. The pro-gunners fear a direct violent situation. The anti-gunner fear an accidental situation. What are the likely chances of either happening? I don't know but I have read more stories about people being killed from a directed attack than an accidental shooting, especially one during where someone was defending themselves.

    I see your point and generally agree, however, that last statement is arguable...

    Legal carry is our constitutional right, but it doesn't really make a LEO's job easier...

    Liberals are mentally ill people who project what they would do with a gun onto sane, reasonable gun owners

    A Michael Savage quote, always useful to show how fee of mental disorders one is, ha.

    Actually the whole poll is crazy, you need to make the language used in poll questions neutral as possbile, this one leads like crazy. I don't know why anyone would be surprised that some people feel threated by armed people.
