    logic errors before you post.

    You claim you aren't making the argument that a total ban on guns is under consideration and then in the very next statement make exactly that argument.

    Then you go on to quote a dictionary definition of "liberty" that supports my point, not yours.

    When you are able to make a coherent argument that is at least nominally free of obvious errors in reasoning I might take you more seriously.

      I never claimed a "total ban".
      However, if you don't think there is a proposed  'ban' then I suggest you learn what the "B" in "AWB" stands for.
      "Dictionary"
      How, exactly, does a definition that mentions "control" three times as being contrary to "liberty" support your assertion of "gun control" not being an infringement upon "liberty".

      This is simple English. As I do not have my English-to-JustinB dictionary handy, why don't we just stick to the actual definitions of words?

      Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      •  The definitions of words are heavily colored (0+ / 0-)

        by context. This is another point which continues to elude you. As a result, you continue to spew gibberish, erect strawmen, and think of yourself as being oh-so-clever in the process.

          So says someone whom wrongly attributed words both to me & to the dictionary.

          Did you find the dictionary definition to be "heavily colored by implication" as well? Did you find it to be "gibberish"?

          Words have meanings, friend. Don't (wrongly) attribute logical fallacies to me (and the dictionary) for your reading mistakes.

          It's not "gibberish", pal. It's English.

          Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.
