  •  So elitist of you... (4+ / 0-)

    So, gun control isn't about saving lives, its about denying people their rights, ESPECIALLY the poor.

    Only the rich in your world will be armed!

    Not in mine.

    I'd rather that our society evolve beyond the need for weapons but since our government has made it perfectly clear they have no duty to protect anyone, anywhere, at any time...we'll never get there.

    •  why do you need to resort to insults? (4+ / 0-)

      And why do you need to put words in my mouth?

      This is what makes any kind of reasonable dialogue with some of you in RKBA impossible.

      •  Take responsibility for the consequences of (6+ / 0-)

        your position. Pointing out those consequences cannot be construed as an insult but a point of fact.

        You wish to add a sin tax to limit/deny people from exercising a right.  You then claim this is a "progressive" ideal.

        I never signed up to abrogate the rights of my fellow Americans, or limit them to only those whom can afford it.

          are you insulting and waging personal attacks, then I would say thats not my problem, but yours, and your inability to communicate in a civil way. So, your questions, whether sincere or not, will have to be left hanging in the breeze.

          Try following the rules like the rest of us have to.

          •  The consequences of your position is that the poor (0+ / 0-)

            will be denied rights.  There is nothing "civil" about that, nor is it a progressive value, as you claimed.

            I have not violated any rules here, sir.

      •  what is the insult? pointing out the results of (1+ / 0-)

        your "targeted" tax......nothing at all like a poll tax though is it.....

        Pointing out that you have proposed a regressive sin tax is not an insult,when you proposed a regressive sin tax.
