That does not mean he will be doing it. More assumptions and speculation. In other words, you cannot prove it.

Now that President Donald Trump has been acquitted from impeachment, will those who say that they will vote for Trump this November check if he is hiding anything?

I won't.

I don't even understand the question. What would I check? But the answer is no regardless.

Progressives are still out to violate everyone's civil liberties, and for no reason other than their own sadistic pleasure at violating our civil liberties.

It's important that we keep Mr. Trump in the White House so that he can continue to protect America from the progressive menace.

Americans are only returning the favor. The results of his economic policy and trade deals shows he adores us. He has made our lives better. That means every citizen and every color and every sexual orientation.

@MontereyJack,
If the motivation for outlawing pistol grips on semi-auto rifles is anything other than the sadistic pleasure that progressives get from violating people's civil liberties, then what is the real motivation?

A new video has emerged on social media of a car being driven on the wrong side of the road outside the RAF base near where 19-year-old Harry Dunn died.

Mr Dunn was killed after a crash by RAF Croughton in Northamptonshire which led to suspect Anne Sacoolas leaving the UK under diplomatic immunity.

The footage appears to have been recorded on Thursday. Another car was recorded being driven on the wrong side of the road near the base last month.

Police said they would investigate.

Dunn family spokesman Radd Seiger said the emergence of the latest video near RAF Croughton was "shocking but not a surprise".

The crash that killed Mr Dunn happened on 27 August outside the RAF base where Mrs Sacoolas's husband Jonathan worked as a US intelligence officer.

Mrs Sacoolas, 42, is to be charged with causing death by dangerous driving.

In January, US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo rejected the UK's request for her extradition.

Northamptonshire Police Chief Constable Nick Adderley met the US air base's commander on Thursday to discuss safety.

He said his meeting with Colonel Bridget McNamara was "encouraging".

A joint statement released by the police and the colonel said Ms McNamara "provided a detailed brief of all the proactive measures that the base continues to do to help those living on the base adjust to UK driving standards".

"It was clear from the meeting that the base already had a significant number of measures in place in ensuring driver safety," Mr Adderley said.

"The base and the force have continued to work together."

"Additional provisions" are to be introduced and both parties "are doing all that they can to prevent any future harm on the roads in and around the site", he said.

Colonel McNamara said Northamptonshire Police had been a "steadfast partner of our base" and she looked forward to its continued relationships.

Mr Seiger said the family was "shocked" at the news of the meeting, and said Mr Dunn's family "should have been there".

He said Northamptonshire Police and the US Air Force "fail to acknowledge that there is a problem".

"As evidenced by further video today, a further tragedy is inevitable," he added.

I've never seen any evidence suggesting that anyone was promoting gun control for reasons of personal pleasure, sadistic or otherwise, despite your incessant repetition of this specious claim.

Common sense would infer that it is an attempt to discourage inaccurate firing of multiple rounds from the hip, a legitimate safety concern. Whether it is effective in this regard may be challenged, but to suggest that the motivation is the pursuit of pleasure is not indicated by the facts we have at our disposal. The baseless claim looks like a mere rhetorical flourish, an attempt to trivialize the whole notion of gun control.

We really need to crack down on our diplomats and not allow them to drive in other countries unless they are competent to do so.

Sure you have. The fact that no one can provide any alternative motivation is evidence that I have correctly stated the only actual motivation.

Hardly specious. My claim is backed up by the fact that no one can provide any alternative motivation for outlawing pistol grips.


hightor wrote:

No it wouldn't. There is no plausible reason why anyone would be concerned about that. It's just silly nonsense that was cobbled together to distract from the reality that there is no actual reason for outlawing pistol grips.


hightor wrote:

That is incorrect. That is not a safety concern of any sort, and certainly not a legitimate one.

Gun control trivializes itself when it devotes all of its energy to trying to outlaw pistol grips.

When I point out the fact that The Emperor Has No Clothes, that doesn't mean that I'm the person who took his clothes away.

I provided a reasonable alternate motivation. There could be many, many other reasons but safety concerns seem the most likely. On the other hand, doing it "for fun" seems very unlikely and I've never heard this from any source other than you.

Since gun control manifestly does not devote "all its energy" to this effort your response is merely another instance of your penchant for posting self-aggrandizing drivel.

Your beef is with magazine-size. If that were not the case, then your beef is with the pistol-grip or the flash suppressor or the barrel-shroud, or some other such silliness. Either way, make your case, and I'll show you in no uncertain terms how well it will hold up.

No you didn't. Your supposed alternative motivation was fact-free nonsense.

No they don't. Having a pistol grip on a rifle is not a safety concern in any way whatsoever.

That is incorrect. The gun control movement routinely fights to the death on their need to violate people's civil liberties for fun. And in doing so, they often undermine all other gun control efforts.

One obvious example was the 2013 gun control debacle, where Mr. Obama wasted the entire first hundred days of his second term fighting over pistol grips, and by the time he had lost that fight, he had also lost on all his other gun control proposals as well.

Time after time after time, whenever the gun control movement is challenged on pistol grips, they stop thinking about other gun control measures and devote all their energy to their desperate need to violate people's civil liberties for no reason.

It's actually quite a convenient way of defeating gun control. Quite often gun control advocates simply defeat themselves with no need for heavy lifting from the gun rights movement.

What's really funny is, I can actually point this out to gun control people (as I am doing right now in fact), and even when they understand that I am correct, like good little lemmings they will still just keep on marching over the cliff.

In other situations I might have actually felt bad about their plight, but considering that gun control advocates are such horrible people (they actually enjoy violating people's civil liberties for no reason) it is actually pretty neat that they have an irresistible compulsion to undermine themselves this way.

Pointing out leftist bad behavior is neither self-aggrandizing nor drivel.

Bye. I'll be here ready to provide facts again when you decide to return.

I don't have a "beef" in this particular case. As I explained to the other character, gun control advocates are concerned with safety — the desire to minimize injuries and death and to keep firearms out of the hands of people who use them irresponsibly. All their proposals can be debated as to their effectiveness but none of them indicate a desire to deny anyone's rights for their own pleasure.

Good-bye.
