    to the conversation.

    I can just about forgive the Brits for starting our revolutionary war and burning DC to the ground during the war of 1812 for giving us Led Zeppelin.

      In that it shows the utter paranoia of the gun apologists.

          Haven't flooded the country with massively deadly weapons.  It's called overkill, but you guys sound pretty worried about the slippery slope.

          Gosh, if AR-15's are illegal, then what's next?  Deer rifles?  Six shooters?

          The NRA gives you cover.  You just don't want to come out and say it.  Being reasonable or productive in regulating the equipment isn't much your concern apparently.

            I post apparently. Try it first before resorting to your own fallacies

            Being reasonable or productive in regulating the equipment isn't much your concern apparently.
            The association fallacy is an informal version of the fallacious argument known as affirming the consequent.

          Look, the discussion is presumably outlawing AR-15's and large clips, and the gun lover crowd is worried about what exactly???

          Why don't you just come out and say.  If the discussion is gun regulation, you and your kind will monkey-wrench because you think it's a slippery slope, right?  You're so paranoid about that very thing, you actually go Godwin on it.

          I thought it lost the first one, so I had to paraphrase the 2nd time.  :-)

              Watch out for Hitler.  He'll look more like Bush though than liberal abuse of state power.

                Machine Gun Pie
                by Biker Billy
                When you bike into this pie, You’ll hear the rat tat tat of machine gun fire, which sounds just like a straight-piped Hog racing up an alley. It is a favorite of mine when I want something Italian but not pasta. This recipe is a variation on a classic ratatouille baked into a pie that will make veggie lover’s pizzas look anemic.

                1/2-cup sun-dried tomatoes
                1/2 cup boiling water
                1/4-cup extra virgin olive oil
                1 medium-size onion, cut into matchsticks
                4 canned chipotle peppers packed in adobo sauce, minced
                2 tablespoons chopped garlic
                1 medium-size eggplant, cut into 1-inch cubes
                2 medium-size zucchini, trimmed, halved lengthwise, and cut into 1-inch slices
                3 cups small brown mushrooms, cut in half
                1 medium-size yellow bell pepper, seeded and cut into 1-inch squares
                One 29-ounce can whole peeled tomatoes, quartered, with their juice
                2 tablespoons dried parsley
                2 tablespoons dried basil
                1 teaspoon dried oregano
                1 1/2 teaspoons salt
                1 teaspoon black pepper
                1 box piecrust mix, prepared for two 9-inch deep-dish pies
                4 cups shredded mozzarella cheese

                1. Place the sun-dried tomatoes in a small heatproof bowl and cover with the boiling water. Allow to cool to room temperature. Remove the tomatoes from the water, reserving the liquid. Coarsely chop the tomatoes and return to the liquid.
                2. Heat the olive oil in a large skillet over high heat. Add the onion and chipotles, stir well to coat with oil, and cook, stirring, until the onions begin to brown, 5 to 7 minutes. Reduce the heat to medium, add the garlic, eggplant, zucchini, mushrooms, and bell pepper, and cook, stirring a few times, until the vegetables are just tender, 5 to 7 minutes. Raise the heat to high, add the sun-dried tomatoes with their liquid, the peeled tomatoes, parsley, basil, oregano, salt, and black pepper, and cook, stirring a few times, until the sauce just thickens, 5 to 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and allow to cool to room temperature.
                3. Preheat the oven to 450° F. Divide the filling between the two piecrusts. Cover the top of each evenly with the mozzarella. Bake until the cheese and crusts are golden brown, 12 to 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and serve immediately.

                Makes two 9-inch pies
