Should we let that same guy buy whatever book he wanted?


What books do you want to ban?


You didn’t answer my question. Should we let the homicidal maniac buy whatever book he wanted?


Only if the individual is physically and mentally capable of handing the responsibility that comes with freedoms.


So, we should do background checks for people who want to buy books?



I reported your post because it appears that a tween has hacked your account.



Do you want 2 year olds to vote?

Yes I do want 2 year olds to vote. I know you didn't ask me. Why you probably won't ask? Because the adults voted and decided that Hillary and Trump should run against each other. That was after having Obama and Romney run against each other. Tell me again, how a 2 year old could mess that up more than we did? LOL

Boy, you are great at avoiding the issue.

My question was not about voting. My question was about whether we should require background checks for people who want to buy a book - to make sure they are capable of handling said book.

And you suck at answering questions that would illustrate your bias.


Rights, like free expression and owning firearms are inalienable. There are no differences.

Unless you want to enter the realm of the absurd.

So, how is the realm of the absurd? Treatin' you okay?

So I’m going to have to answer for you since you won’t.

I’m guessing you are saying we shouldn’t have background checks for people to have books. That means a known homicidal maniac should be able to get any book they want.

I’m also guessing you are saying that we SHOULD have at least some type of background check to make sure a known homicidal maniac doesn’t get any gun they want.

Therefore, you are admitting that books are not always interchangeable with guns in your argument. Therefore, you are admitting you were wrong to edit my post talking about not letting guns get into the wrong hands by substituting the word gun with book.

I can give you examples of books banned or attempted to be banned in the United States, as I argued. As for books banned by the government, as per your goal-post widening, I'm not aware that there are any.


I did not widen any goal post. I asked a specific question, as it relates to the US government, due to the constitutional basis of our individual rights. The constitution being a document that limits what the federal government can or cannot do.

So in this context, my question is quite relevant.

You've not entered the realm of the absurd, you've paid first/last months rent and live in a condo there.

I’m just glad we got that misunderstanding worked out. One cannot say that the right to get a book is exactly the same as the right to get a gun. The process in procuring is not the same, the requirements to procure are not the same, because the possible immediate damage done is not the same. We don’t stop books from getting in the wrong hands like we need to stop guns from getting into the wrong hands. There’s a reason for that. Books do not equal guns.

I assumed that, as per the post I quoted, you were saying book banning does not occur here. My mistake. I wasn't aware you were limiting the discussion to government censorship.

Literally, no.

Books are not the same as guns. You can put many bullets into a book and it'll just sit there. There is no physical trigger on a book.

The same could be said for guns. Guns do not have many pages made from paper with words on them that you can read.



I guess you win this round, Moriarty!


Damn you and your cursed genius!

Yes let's ban all those books where you can turn the pages just as fast as you can and read all those scary words on them cuz you know if you read more than 5 pages in a minute it's considered an assault book.

I've used stacked up phone books for target practice.
A .44 magnum would penetrate into the third Houston phone book.
Is book-shooting wrong? Maybe I am a bad person.
Do they still make phone-books?
Maybe I'm getting old.

I would certainly hope a known homicidal maniac would be in prison. After all, the word homicidal sort of implies criminal level behavior. And a person in prison would obviously not be getting guns, generally speaking prisoners have their rights removed for being willing to simply take away the rights of others on a whim.

We're all getting old, but you can still keep up with the times.

Do a Google search for the phone number. Then you can put a .22 through the monitor easily.

There are actually a couple books I would LIKE to burn (ie bible & quran), but I would never actually advocate to do it because of freedom of speech. Anybody can write or say whatever they want as long as it's not a direct threat on somebody's life, whether it's offensive or not. I don't like hate speech, but my philosophy is that you welcome to do that, but on the other hand, people that disagree are welcome to call them morons over their ignorance and harmful message.

Criminals do not buy guns like I do. They buy illegally. NO one ever implied criminals should be allowed to have guns. Read current laws before you imply we approve of criminals owning guns. They buy them out of the back of another criminals trunk.

You think you have more education than I? What is your level of education. B.S. degree here and a doctorate .What say you? If you want to talk to me in a condescending way fine. Maybe I am an educated redneck. I do know I will defend this country against all enemies foreign and domestic. Raised my right hand and pledged I would do it 1975. It seems these days there are far more domestic enemies today than ever before. So many ignorant people willing to give up liberties. Twitter makes it fashionable. Be part of the herd. Your utopian feel good logic will get you a government you can't handle. Book burning is next. History changing is occurring as we speak. Tearing down Confederate monuments, attacking past presidents for owning slaves changes nothing. Removing history from the current lexicon changes nothing. You liberal pips think you are making a better world rewriting history. Communists did that. National socialists did it too.
Bill Ayers has completed his task of destroying America as we know it. Promised to usurp the universities. Done. Destroy the family unit. Done. Please read his writings from the weather underground. This is what you will get. Your lives will be minimal. You will be reduced to a number. A worthless extra eater. You will lose the ability to choose your life path as it will be chosen for you. Just like health care and education you so want to be paid for. But who pays? Those that work the hardest it is taken form them. Wealth redistribution!! I bet you agree on enormous inheritance taxes. Kids should not get their parents wealth. Do you know what these kid may have sacrificed while parents obtain wealth. They may deserve it more than you think. Sometimes those silver spoons come with a price you would never understand.
I will now stop the ramble. I just had to air my concern over the entrenched SJW liberal types on this site. What do you cherish? Anything? What real future do you see? Hopefully not Animal Farm, 1984. or a Brave New World, because if you do your future looks very bleak.
