I often find it difficult to face some information because it is so hurtful. But we have to move it forward to make even increments of progress, it seems.

@edgarblythe,
It was this same "rule" that kept blacks from being quarterbacks. Sunlight is a great treatment for ignorant ideology.

@BillW,
I remember Jesse Jackson was a good college quarterback but was told he couldn't pursue a pro career due to his non-whiteness.

@edgarblythe,
I use to be so naive. I wouldn't believe stuff only to realise later how wrong I was.

They won't do that? would they? no way?????

The longer you live the more examples you find you had missed. For me, anyway.

@oralloy,
Humor me for one minute here - long enough to answer this...

If you and I were handed one of two weapons - each of us handed just one - and one of the weapons was a 10 inch hunting knife, and the other is a semiautomatic 30-06 with a full 100-round magazine...

If we both tried to injure or kill as many people in a crowded gymnasium as we could in thirty seconds,

Which of us do you suppose would tally up the most hurt or killed - the one with the knife, or the one with the gun?

You know darn well you changed up your prediction as the election season unfolded. You started out saying Trump would win, and we would have republicans in power in Washington for “at least” 20 years.

Are you denying that you changed that grandiose prediction?

The disgusting and exhausting thing about you is, that even if I take the time to find your quote saying exactly what I said above, you would still deny it.
You’re not just a liar. You’re a demented liar.

An experienced gun owner like you can’t even even hazard a guess about which weapon would do the most damage? How is that possible? Unless you’re just being disingenuous (lying) about having “no idea”.

@snood,
It's possible because it is hard to tell which weapon would do the most damage.

I think I'm done humoring you on this subject though. "Humoring requests" is a favor that I prefer doing for people who don't spout lies or name-calling at me.

@oralloy,
If you really can’t tell which would do more damage between a hunting knife or a semiautomatic hunting rifle, you probably need to rest that big brain.

******* liar

Also, since it makes no difference, if you ever have to be involved in a gunfight, I heartily recommend you bring a buck knife.

Again, you have no honor or integrity whatsoever.

Shame on you for falsely accusing me of your own dishonesty.

An M60? Child’s play. Meet me at high noon. I’ll bring my Bowie knife. You don’t stand a chance.

@BillW,
Full-auto makes all the difference, especially in a gun designed for (reasonably) sustained fire.

If you want an M60 to defend your home with, Rock Island Armory registered hundreds of them before the 1986 cut off date, so there are plenty of fully transferable M60s on the market.

---

Interesting story. Some time back when the military was replacing the M60 with the M240, I read an article about how the M60 was nothing but trouble and the M240 was far more reliable. I commented about the article to some friends in the military.

Their unanimous (and vehement) reaction was the exact opposite of the article. The M60 was "old reliable" that had saved their lives more times than they could count, and they had had nothing but trouble with the new M240s.

I don't know if it was just that they were still having to adjust to the new and different guns, or whether "reality on the ground" was far different from what the people in charge wanted to portray, but I still think about that whenever I see an article say that the M240 is an improvement over the M60.

I can use a good knife man! Don't need to turn a good asset into an enemy.
