Re: Frank Apisa (Post 5235287)
If what you say is true then why don't you and your Obama liberals come up with a plan to take guns out of the hands of criminals?
I am not a liberal. You want to talk to liberals about that…talk to them.
Do you not have the spine to face armed criminals?
These days, armed decent, law-abiding citizens present the greater problem as far as I am concerned. They are the ones who are committing these mass shootings.
Do you not have the stomach to go after the heart of the problem?
The “problem”, H2O is that we are much too violent a people. Taking all guns away from people like you is an unrealistic dream—disarming criminals is just as much an unrealistic dream. And most of the violence that troubles me is not caused by “criminals” (they will always disrupt society), but by people who up until the time of their attacks, were decent, law-abiding citizens.
So that is what I am addressing.
If you have been reading what I have actually been writing, you must realize by now that I do not think disarming the American public is feasible…and in no way am I advocating it. I am for strengthening laws that limit gun ownership (as far as is humanly possible) to people who are responsible individuals. We will never get it perfect; never even close to perfect...but if we are intelligent, we should try.
And you really shouldn't question whether I have “spine” and ‘stomach” while using an alias and hiding where you are from, H2O.
It's not the gun, it's not the number of bullets and it's not how fast you can shoot those bullets, no it's not any of these.
You are absolutely correct...and I have NEVER said that it is. Some of those things are elements of the overall problem...but they are not the essentials, in my opinion.
It's the criminal element that doesn't abide by the laws, any laws.
That is irrelevant to the issue being discussed, because the people who commit these mass killings are, up until they commit them, “decent, law-abiding citizens.”
If you think I am wrong on that…tell me how I am wrong.
Do you have the balls to face the real problem or are you going to take the
sissy way out and focus your attention on disarming law abiding Americans?
I am not interested in disarming law abiding Americans. Wake the hell up. I have never been an advocate for that “solution.” And you really shouldn’t question whether I have “balls” or whether I am a “sissy” while hiding behind an alias as you do.
You will take the sissy way out in 5, 4, 3, 2, ...
I don’t take the sissy way out. Take a look in the mirror to see that kind of person. Or, put your real name out here...and the name of the city in which you live. C'mon. Show us how ballsy you are.
