Packin Heat!

The NRA is pushing a law that would force all 50 states to allow anyone to carry loaded, concealed guns in public, with no background checks or training.

What a great idea! What American gungoon won't be pissing his pants in glee over this idea.

And so the question is, what age limit should be applied when this law passes? I would personally make it age 6. The child will be capable of packing the weight and will have fingers developed enough to fit a handgun and pull the trigger. And could possibly protect children who are under 6.

Finally! Some Gun Legislation that makes sense!     It's about time...

Although some training in gun safety wouldn't violate any 2A rights. I had always thought the NRA was an advocate of firearm safety and training.    This doesnt pass the smell test.

So glad you agree! I wonder if we will hear more support from this board's posters?

Would you see any public places as being off-limits for guns? Personally, for your country, I wouldn't and I won't comment on my own country because that would confuse the issue. With one exception and that is that your guns would be limited to your side of our border.

Absolutely not. "Gun-Free Zones" are the most dangerous place to be because of the density of "soft targets" - i.e., people who are unable (or unwilling) to defend themselves.

When a bad person wishes to kill or injure a lot of people, he will seek a "Gun-Free Zone".  This way, he knows he will have plenty of time to create maximum carnage and mayhem.   

In a place where most people are concealed-carrying, the assailant knows that he wont be able to squeeze off 8 rounds before he is.. ummmm.."neutralized".

Exactly! And the great thing about the idea is that he won't be able to squeeze off 8, he's only get 6 or 7 before the gang starts firing back at him.

Undoubtedly he'll die of multiple gunshot wounds yahhhh! and the stray lead in the air will likely (take out) a few more bystanders! Could even be an elementary school. Let's all hope not right?

Like I say, it's a great idea for your side of the border!

The NRA Song



Guns are neat, Guns are sweet
Guns the tool, what makes you cool.
Guns are fine, Guns are mine
Guns are things, that Jesus brings!
Guns for loonies, Guns for cons
Guns for Moonies, Guns for moms!
Guns are fun for everyone,
buy them up by the ton.
Guns for me, Guns for you,
Guns for nuts and children too!
Guns at home, Guns at work,
Guns at play, Guns berserk!
Tons and tons of great big Guns,
Are tons and tons of great big fun!
I’ve got Guns up my nose
‘tween my ears and by my toes.
I’m no fool, I’m so cool,
I take Guns to my school.
I take Guns to my car,
to the store and to the bar.
I got Guns in a drawer,
in my pocket and on the floor.
I got Guns on the wall,
behind the toilet and in the hall.
I got guns in my bed,
one is growing from my head!
Get a Gun and get it fast,
Gun-Gun shoot-shoot is a blast!

What is it called when you attribute something to someone (or an organization of someones) when they did not in fact say what you claim?

In the interest of following your instructions and answering my own questions, I'll answer using a short word you might understand... it's a lie.

Well, what do you call someone who tells an intentional lie? A liar!.

(How'm I doing Guru?)

I don't personally own any guns of any kind (even though I live in an african american neighborhood!), but I am not against gun ownership. It doesnt concern me as much as other issues like elitism in the government/regions of the USA. In fact, gun ownership, though I don't own any guns, because I'd probably shoot myself with one, may be useful to scare the jerks in the government, to imagine a bunch of inbred nuts running around with guns is a real fear factor for a government that continually wants to send bombladen jets and drones abroad to bomb civilians in good old liberal democratic fashion, then call us all losers in the greater USA for not voting them into office again in the central atlantic elite society.  However, I wouldnt personally trust myself with a gun not to suicide.

What does that have to do with owning or not owning guns?

It might be for their immediate neighbors, but only if they were violent. Not all inbred nuts are violent. In my experience, most of them are just nuts, not violent at all.

The government isn't worried about them at all. It is worried (I hope) about the inbred nuts like Dennis Mahon, but it isn't worried that they will overthrow the government... unless we have elected too many inbred nuts to Congress? Cheesy
