Why did aguy pull a gun on you?.


Simply to be a complete jerk. Called me an asshole, pulled the gun, laughed hysterically, drove off as fast as he could. I was simply walking back home from a trip to Wal mart. He had already tried running me down on the way in, gave me the stink eye in the checkout line (At the time, It was just some random old guy giving me the stink eye). I didn't realize he was the same guy till he pulled up in the same car from earlier...

Huh? Actually I didn’t even touch on the racist part, which is another reason white males stock pile guns. For the record, I’m a white male. a reply to: network dude



you are a RACIST white male with a bit too much time spent on worrying about men's wedding tackle.
Actually, I don't really think that, but your OP was sofaking stupid, I felt the need to post something equally as ignorant.

the loud exhaust on my Truck is what I use to make up for my lack of a 10". My weapons are just because I can.

Is there a pic? Because I will bet dollars to donuts he has a small "woody" allen stature and projects it like the op, proving my point. We have milkfed bubba as our role model and ask any girl girth matters and all those small woody types like being cucks anyway because they envy Bubba and his big guns. Who wants to be "woody" allen cuck? I would rather be bubba with girth and a lot of enviable guns for a phallic worthy of "woody"'s envy a reply to: Krakatoa

What's funny is they realized shooting is kind of fun, and when done properly, a safe activity, they are realizing that the fear brought on by the media is unfounded and wrong. I think this is wonderful and would be happy to assist them if they needed.
Education is wonderful.

I read where there is this huge growing trend in the porn industry for cuckolded whitemen
I have always wondered where they come from. I'm beginning to think it is all the white male hillary sycophants after reading this thread. My eyes have been opened. It probably explains antifa and pussyhat wearing white guys. All hillary sycophants.a reply to: network dude

Why don't these people just come out and be honest that they want to get rid of the Second Amendment instead of making up bs studies about "white conservatives". It's pretty clear to me these people don't think I should have any right to defend myself or my family on my property or in public if someone becomes a imminent threat.

The only right I should have is limited to calling 911 and becoming a dead victim.


Edit: Since when was collecting guns for personal reasons become an issue? It has nothing to do with a lack of masculinity or any of the sort. Pure ignorance.

Lol posted some solid facts but you seem unwilling to understand the reality of the why. No surprise. Let me see if I understand wing nut logic. They are gonna come for my guns therefore I need more. Brilliant.... lmao. Im conjuring a vision of mumbling wing nuts burying guns in their back yards of the night, they won’t find this one...... reminds me of a great meme I just read the other day. Wing nut gun owners fully support the troops but they are arming themselves to kill them. Just in case, lol..... nut jobs one and all. a reply to: neo96



You seem to have a lot of pent up hatred.

That just shows it isn't just white conservative males.

Doesn't mean OP isn't true.

This OP guy sounds so butt hurt. I bet he's a tough guy wielding his mouse and tv remote.

What kind of responses do you expect with a smug opener like that?

Guns don't kill people, people do. Having guns doesn't make one inferior; police officers, military men, secret services? You callimg these brave men inferior and scared?

Keyboard warriors these days... as tough as they come I suppose

Let's break down the study, shall we?
    - There were only 3,949 people who participated
      - Of note, all participants chosen to be on select panels at Growth For Knowledge (the research company that conducted the study) are accumulate points that can be redeemed for cash and other things of value

    - The findings were that 54.7-million U.S. residents over 18-years-old own guns
      - Average gun ownership is 4.8 guns per individual; median ownership is 2 guns per individual

    - There are an estimated 265-million guns owned in the United States (per the 2012 survey)

    - 14% of gun owners (3% of the U.S. population) own 50% of all guns in the United States
      - 8% of gun owners own more than 10 guns

    - 63% of gun owners own firearms primarily for self protection against other individuals
      - 76% of handgun owners' primary reason for owning a gun is for self protection

    - Other reasons specified for owning firearms:
      - 40% for hunting
      - 34% for collecting
      - 28% for sporting use
      - 20% for protection against animals
      - 40% included 'some other reason,' such as "gift or inheritance or the right to have them"

    - Variances in reasons for ownership by type(s) of firearms owned:
      - "Almost 80%" of handgun-only owners cite "protection against strangers" (PAS) as a primary reason for ownership (PRFO)
      - 72% of handgun-and-rifle owners cite PAS as a PRFO
      - 31% of long-gun-only owners cite PAS as a PRFO

      - 2% of handgun-only owners cite hunting as a PRFO
      - 55% of handgun-and-rifle owners cite hunting as a PRFO
      - 57% of long-gun-only owners cite hunting as a PRFO

    - Handgun-only owners "are more likely to be female, nonwhite, and living in urban areas, and are less likely to have grown up in a house with a gun"

The Actual Study

So, I ask you--where does it say anything about being afraid, or feeling inferior, or needing an extension of their manhood?

Oh, wait, that's just your scared, ignorant interpretation that is not supported by the data--a way to belittle others so that you feel less inferior and now have a digital extension of your manhood over the internet. I see. (which is a regurgitated conclusion of the hack of a writer in the link in your OP who has the resume of a millennial SJW)

And while your little cute linked story talks about white men, if you'd actually look at the study, you'll note that there are many, many pieces of data that only contradict your claim, but defecate all over it. But yet, here you are, garnering stars and flags from some of the most ignorant people on this site, because like you, I'm willing to bet that they didn't even click the link to the actual article, or even the link to the study contained within the article.

But, you know, what place does actual data have in a logical discussion? Silly me.
edit on 14-3-2018 by SlapMonkey because: added a swipe at the author of the "observation" piece linked in the OP, who seems to have the writing resume of a brainwashed idiot
