I really don't know why Second Amendment supporters feel the need to jump all over any gun related issue regardless of location.


Apparently missed the op, about an antigunner using the events in Paris.



I think the question was centered on why do you care so much about what Liam Neeson says about gun ownership?

I sure don't and wouldn't have known he said it at all if yourself and the "there coming for your guns" crowd hadn't publicized it....alas even found it OP worthy!

Do you somehow fear Liam Neeson's obsessive followers? or whatever kind of mental illness is necessary to hang on Liam Neeson's every obscure opinion before deciding what to think?

It is a fair question...and I think the answer might be a mode of thinking wired toward paranoia...they are coming for your guns...where some British actor mouths an opinion about guns and you see it as warranting a fierce defense.

I truly don't understand...Why is what Liam Neeson thinks important to you? Why should what he thinks about guns be important to any of us? Does he have some influence on US politicians I am unaware of? Does he have some massive US Fan club of political activists unbeknownst to me?

So some guy thinks the US has too many guns...Why the massive defense?

there's been a trend in the usa, for several years now, to use the media's various forms, to humiliate and belittle the bulk of the people in the country. it's resulted in an entire generation of people who actually hate themselves.

I think I know what you are getting at, but honestly have a hard time sympathizing with anyone that stares at a television to determine their self worth, or for anyone that raises there children to do the same.

Even under your dim view of modern society, I still do not see Liam Neeson as having some unseen over-sized influence to be feared. Really ...who gives a sh*& if he thinks the US owns too many guns?...apart from the OP.

Well then guess Neeson should have kept his mouth shut, and stuck to killing people on tv for money.

Err....you're wrong, yes I did read the OP.....and all the other posts in this thread.

Perhaps you are just deliberately missing the point I made.

You posted,

So Nesson' gets to criticize me, but I don't get to criticize right back.


Guess this wasn't clear enough for you?

As for the OP - I think that as a naturalised US citizen Liam Neeson is perfectly entitles to his opinion on gun control laws in the US.
I do however think he is wrong to use the killings in Paris to justify his position - Apples and pears.


Do I really have to make anything clearer than that?

To be perfectly clear - the killings in Paris had absolutely nothing even remotely to do with US gun control laws, US gun ownership or the Second Amendment and any attempt to tie the two together, whether by you or Liam Neeson or anyone else, is ridiculous.

You've conveniently ignored any other points I've raised.

oh it's in our school textbooks, our newspapers, our music, our movies, our news shows, our politicians. biggest psychological operation in history. i remember when george bush jr won the election, cnn broadcasting a map of the united states that showed the "red states" and "blue states" and then proceeded to tell everyone that if you didn't live in a city or if you lived in the south or if you were in a red state, you're less intelligent, have a lower IQ, lower test scores, less education (mind you, at least half the country was a red state at the time, cause the "red" title was given to states who voted for bush) and so on. they just wanted us to know that only idiots live 1) in the south, 2) in rural areas, 3) or in red states. then they put up a map with the words "jesusland" printed in great big letters across the middle and used it as a derogatory.

i sat there for quite some time staring at the screen in disbelief.

There is a difference between fact and fiction. Movies are fiction....DUH!

You do understand that only in the US does the average person get a tingling in their loins thinking about guns. Over here we shake our heads at how sad and deluded you are. That's a fact, not a made up statement purposely intended to offend (big difference, freedom speech, je suis charlie etc etc). If it does offend then you are offended by the attitude to guns that the average European citizen has. TOUGH.

Liam Neeson is Irish and the Irish have more to be tired with wrt guns than almost every other UK citizen.

Government passing laws under the pretense of making us safe is also fiction.

They do more harm than good, and the action of harming, and murder of someone is already ILLEGAL.

Who manufactured the weapons in the Paris attack? AK-47s. RPGs.

Yes. That's Breitbart's interpreted exaggeration of Neeson's words, and not entirely accurate.

If you look at the source: gulfnews.com, he never said that. He was referring to the quantity of guns, not that owning guns is a disgrace.

Is this entire thread based on Breitbart's biased misrepresentation of Neeson's words?

Actually the op included two sources.

Where it says on to the next article from here.

www.inquisitr.com...

With direct quotations sourced from the second.

Right.

He never said: Gun Ownership ‘Is A F*****g Disgrace’

In context, his comment was directed at the quantity of guns, not ownership of guns.
There’s over 300 million guns. Privately owned, in America. I think it’s a [expletive] disgrace.
That's what he said.

Oddly enough, Fox News' Entertainment division got it right: Liam Neeson: Number of guns in U.S. 'a disgrace'

Truth is a good thing.
