Second Amendment upheld ... barely

Just incase anyone didnt see this yet. I dont want to get political, but its at the very least important to know what is going on.

Yeah, that's nuts. I just wish our laws weren't decided by a bunch of ignorant extremists...aka politicians. (Left & right. I vote, so I will bitch all day. If you don't vote, then you don't deserve to bitch IMO :))

Guns don't kill people, people kill people. If guns do kill people, then...
Pencils misspell words
Cars make people drive drunk
Spoons make people fat
etc...I can keep going.

Thanks for posting that hrdgain.

Check out thehighroad.org to see what you can do to prevent crap like that from getting out of hand. I have seen many responsible gun owners, and I have also seen many moron drivers. Of course, I've also seen the opposite. Why not outlaw the automobile as well, since it causes several deaths??

I wonder how many people are killed because of other drivers getting road rage each year. It really is essentially the same thing. Except that a car has other purposes. I guess if they made a swiss army 9mm, with a screw driver, cork screw, and can opener then there would be no argument. But still, I agree with you John.

Guns to have other purposes, I use my 9mm glock to open my beers all the time hahahah

i dont think i would want to ever get a gun...........i would not hesitate to shoot someone. and after i did it i would feel horrible. so i will just stick to screaming at people at the top of my lungs :)

Ross86 07-01-2008 08:30 AM

Haha I remember Homer using a gun to open his beers on the Simpsons.

Monsta, I would do the same thing and feel the same way.

hrdgain81 07-01-2008 08:34 AM

I understand how you feel, but personally i've always looked at it like this. The one and only time i will use a gun to cause harm to another person would be if they had the intent to harm me or my loved ones, in which case they get what they deserve.

Ross86 07-01-2008 08:43 AM

I would get pissed off in traffic or something. That's why I don't carry one. But at home..I'm with you 100%. If somebody tries to break in or harm my family, then they'll be done for in as long as it takes to open the safe.

hrdgain81 07-01-2008 08:50 AM

^^ I dont carry anymore either, but thats only because i moved to NYC. I'm a pretty easy going guy, i dont get too heated over anything really, so road rage isnt a concern for me ... but if it is for you ross your making a smart move leaving the firearms at home.
