    ...because you finally figured out you'll never win that round.  Now we've got to teach the Brady Bunchers they won't win on their "restrictions" either.

    •  And why would "we" have to do that? (0+ / 0-)

      "We" really don't have to do any such thing at all, because training and testing makes sense.  It makes so much sense that extremists have to raise the boogeyman strawman of "taking away guns" in the first place, right?

        A two year old probably would have difficultly reading a warning label, much less a four page brochure--big print or not.

        So let's agree; toddlers access to firearms and Draino should be strictly supervised.

        I still have every reason to suspect that you--but critically, more consequential voices--spewing this line about "restrictions" still want to take away guns.  You'll just hope for a long bleeding in gun ownership like Canada's currently experiencing, hoping that it will reach a point where you can put in place a serious disarmament regime.

        Well, that's why I sell guns.

        •  Well, as long as you have a GOOD REASON. (0+ / 0-)

          You agree that training and testing is a good idea, except that it would cause a disarming of people too stupid or careless to pass a basic test.  And saying that a stupid, careless person can't own as many guns as he wants puts us on a slippery slope.   So you are in favor of stupid, careless people being as free as they can to own as many guns in any way they please, so that we don't end up with the horrors of Canada.  Which seems like a nice, safe place to live, relatively.  

          Okay, there's one vote for swirling the bowl.

          I can't wait to hear your opinion on whether convicts of violent gun crimes should be allowed guns.

          Well, that's why I sell guns.
          Of course.  Make sure they go to stupid and careless people and we'll never have to suffer the relative safety of Canada.  Good thinking.
