  •  Your answer to define an assalt weapon is 'porn'? (5+ / 0-)

    I guess we have our answer.

    Thanks. But I think that innocent people should keep their current liberties despite this convincing argument.

    Those who would sacrifice liberty for security deserve neither.

      spout off your about your bizarre fetish...how long you will be able to do that here is another question...I predict...not much longer.

      •  Why? because Frank is pro 2A? Lots of us here (3+ / 0-)

        are pro Second/pro gun and lots of us carry daily.

        So Glen, why would Frank be here  "not much longer"?

        I mean after all, I carry daily, I own multiple firearms, I reload ammunition and am a member of the oldest Rifle Club in the state of Arizona with a world class  (well pretty close) shooting facility and I have been here a long time, since Katrina actually.......

        Hell we have had the RKBA group here before groups were even enabled by the software.....

        So where do you get off telling someone else they don't belong here?

        •  should I be impressed..?? (0+ / 0-)

          I worked at a gun range...I currently own two hunting rifles...lever-action 30-30 and bolt-action 30-06...I have reloaded ammo...cast my own bullets...have shot many types of guns...flintlocks to MAC-10's.

          never used a semi-auto for hunting...no longer hunt...just not into it...never had a gun for protection...for most people statistics show it to be a stupid move...also wore a seatbelt before it was law for the same reason...I support the seatbelt law because of the cost to society...in blood and money.

          on this issue like I/P...both sides have legitimate concerns...I have told this user that the AWB is not a major concern for me...I could go either way...I feel other controls would be more effective...I am for much stricter controls.

          do you ever see me in the RKBA diaries..??..not really and even when I was...I was polite and questioning...I got my answers and was satisfied...whether or not I agreed...even HR'd a few obvious trolls in those diaries.

          so do you support said user's behavior...continuous thread-jacking...dead-thread harassment...always looking for a fight...obsessing on a single point of one topic...relentless, obsessive, disruptive and intimidating.

          he does not help your side...he comes off like an obsessive whacko...he distracts from what could be reasonable debate...as is the intent of this site...we can learn from those which we disagree...and I have often.

          but go ahead...keep propping up trolls like...noway2, Re:Patrick, Very Long Range, etc...you knew they were trolls...or should have...I do not like trolls that are here only to be disruptive...whatever the topic.

          that is my take...I think if this behavior was shown to the admins...he would be bojo'd...he is already being followed by the vase...I'll stick with my prediction...I've have a pretty good record so far.

          •  Should I? (0+ / 0-)

            "I worked at a gun range"
            Utterly irrelevant.

            "he distracts from what could be reasonable debate"
            Yes. If only I could whine about other users instead of the actual issue at hand.........and what is more 'reasonable' than repealing an Amendment in the Bill of Rights?

            "he comes off like an obsessive whacko"
            I'm not the one supporting repealing an Amendment in the Bill of Rights, nor talking about banning you.
            Nor do I follow you.
            You may want to look up the definitions of both 'obsessive' and 'whacko'.

            "continuous thread-jacking"
            So says someone (in addition to DoC) that decided to start a conversation about me. (Hint: I'm not mentioned in the diary)

            "he does not help your side"
            Not as much as someone that supports "Repealing or Amending the Second Amendment"?
            How unfortunate.
            Sounds like RKBA should be making the transparent & whiny calls for my banning.
            Thanks for your advise. Makes the clueless & bullshit accusations about me being a 'concern troll' into perspective.

            "he is already being followed by the vase"
            And you do as well. Neither of which concerns me. If I get banned for an opposing view, so be it.
            With your attitude, you should join "Repeal or Amend the First Amendment".  Don't worry, I'm sure Bloomberg will finance that viewpoint as well.

            "I will stick to my prediction"
            As will I....but my prediction sticks to the issue at hand.
            See you in 2014.
            I hope you are as proud of those results, as you are of the recalls in Colorado.....you should be, they are thanks to you.

            Go root for banning away some another problem of yours Glen. God knows it is your first, second, and only answer......but until then; why don't you stick to the issue & not me?
            I promise that I will not call for your banning, follow you, mention you, nor, quite frankly, give a flying fuck otherwise. I don't give you a second thought.....and for good reason.
            Why don't you do the same? Unless, of course, you decide (for once) to actually talk about the issue.
            In which case, this unfortunate conversation will be nothing to me but water under the bridge.
            I hope you can do the same.

      Did you see the word "Like"? Do you know what an analogy is?

        In that case, I guess your definition is not only useful, but pure genius.

        Thanks for setting me straight.
