    that you are uninterested in learning how to locate and verify information in today's world, or at least less interested than you apparently are in personal and private contemplation of my physical attributes as you salaciously ruminate upon above.

    I'm OK with that; I will fight for your right to be intentionally ignorant, as well as your right to contemplate the physical attributes of any you choose, whether you know them or not.  Just don't expect that I'll allow you to take away my civil rights on that basis.

      You will be allowed to keep a penis extension. Perhaps it won't fire automatically, or carry 30 shots, but you may have to feel a bit less manly for the sake of the public good.

      You ever notice that everyone who believes in creationism looks really unevolved? Eyes real close together, big furry hands and feet. "I believe God created me in one day." Yeah, looks like he rushed it.- Bill Hicks

      •  Again with the fixation on my penis? (0+ / 0-)

        Seriously, all of this to avoid doing some basic homework that would have caused you to avoid having advocated a departure from our system of representative democracy, especially one that would cause your position against our civil rights to lose?  Clearly your ability to engage in rational debate without demeaning yourself is beyond anyone's ability to ameliorate.

        Perhaps instructions for for using google aren't what you need as much as a primer in logic and basic critical thinking skills.

          intentionally obtuse, or whether you truly can't see when someone is just trying to make a point. Now run along, and try to not shoot yourself, or anyone else, while you are playing with your manhood.

          •  Trying to make a point.... (0+ / 0-)

            ...by constantly and consistently referencing your fascination with my genitalia?  While I am convinced that there is a point at the forefront of your mind, I am likewise convinced that it is not appropriate to discuss in polite company!

            Be that as it may, I will engage in a little light disabstrusion; have you managed to do your homework with respect to the efficacy of the AR platform for home defense?  Or are you continuing in your insistence that facts have no bearing on your opinions as you endeavor to restrict our mutual civil rights?  Do you renounce your implicit insistence that we toss our representative democracy 'under the bus' as it were, or are you now content to allow the political process to proceed along Constitutionally established guidelines?

            •  There are only three reasons that you need a (0+ / 0-)

              military assault weapon.

              1. You are in the military.

              2. You are planning a mass murder.

              3. You are very insecure about something.

              These weapons have no other uses. Which catagory do you fall into? I''ve had enough of you now. Go find someone else to pester.

              •  We seem to be in agreement, of sorts... (0+ / 0-)

                I do not advocate rolling back the 1986 'Firearms Owners Protection Act', despite the shady nature of its' passage and the fact that it is largely unnecessary.  I have neither the need for,  nor the desire to possess fully automatic weapons.  Sen. Feinstein's SB 150 does not seek to ban or further restrict access to automatic weapons; it seeks to ban semi-automatic rifles (as well as some classes of pistols and shotguns) without regard to utility or function.

                Wikipedia entry re: aforementioned act

                This should be the Thomas LOC Summary and Status of SB150

                As for pestering someone, you are the one who can't accept that I lodged a valid complaint against your original suggestion that we toss our representative democracy in the dustbin and restrict voting on the issue to the parent of those slain at Sandy Hook.  That you agreed to include those who have used ARs (not even the more generic and inclusive 'semi-automatic rifle') to defend themselves lawfully reflects more upon your lack of forethought and/or appropriate research.

                Understand that I am literally taking you at your word; I believe you really didn't know that military assault rifles were already banned.  If you were just continuing the trolling, then I guess shame on me for continuing to feed the beast.
