    •  i get that this is a passionate issue (9+ / 0-)

      but why in dog's name would you rec a diary that says this:

      There are Careful Gun Owners.
      There are Considerate Gun Owners
      There are Reasonable Gun Owners.

      But each an every one of them is a risk to you, to your family, to your friends, and to society at large.

      Because each and every gun owner is just one small push away from wheeeeeeeeee!

      i'm not going to call it hate speech, but it is hateful and every bit as ignorant. and people say it's gun advocates who live in fear?

      •  Hate Speech? (0+ / 0-)

        You certainly seem to have a very American command of English my friend.

        It is not hate speech to assert a proposition based on fact. That is statement of fact.

        Several studies have shown that people who live in homes where guns are present are many times more likely to be victims of gun incidents. One recent study pinned that increased likelyhood at 4.5 times more likely.

        It is established fact that even the best of us are simply a few pushes away from "madness" and acting out of normal character under duress. If you disagree then you need to refute the sum total findings of psychology, and medicine, and a mountain of court transcripts to that effect.

        So, whilst I may be saying something YOU disagree with....

        show me where the HATE is?
