You have a serious problem with your posts. Yet ironically many of the pro gun people on this thread do not see it for what it is.
Here with this quote from page 1..
Well I do find it kind of weird how some americans think it's ok to kill a guy for trying to steal their TV... It's kind of frightening
because it shows how much some of you value life. (I.E. less that a TV, whats that, 100 $ for a good one ? )
Here is the problem and the nature of the problem you are not wont to describe or factor in. By your very post quoted above ..you obviously do not
take the lives of the people having the property stolen or robbed as valuable.
I say this because you do not take into consideration what RISKS these people take in earning this property being stolen. Many of us in America work
in dangerous occupations and take serious risks for our moneys and hence by this the properties purchased with our moneys. By your very narrow
slanting of the value of life..you totally ignore the value of the persons life who earned the property and by default attempt to have these people
earning this property over and over and over ad nauseum. All this to put ointment on your sentiments..while ignoring the RISKS of others in earning
said properties. It is you Ismail who do not value the lives of people.
Farming is a very dangerous occupation though many of us do not know this...it is indeed very dangerous. Clerking at a convenience store is dangerous
in many communities. I am in shipbuilding. Nursing is dangerous..they haven't a clue as to what many patients have until properly diagnosed and they
are around some of theses peoples for days before they know. Handling sharps..or needles and such ...you don't once again know what some of these
people have in sickness and disease.
Truck drivers, Firemen, Police. Working on a flight line..on a deck of an aircraft carrier..extremely dangerous.
My point is ..do not diminish the RISKS many of us take to earn our moneys and properties. When you do this ..even for a television set....you cheapen
our lives as not valuable. We do not look for a career purchasing 5 or 6 television sets at great RISKS to keep ointment on the sentiments of peoples
with your point of view..nor the point of view of the criminal element.
Thinking peoples know this Ismail. Emoting people do not.
One other thing for the readers..here. The 2nd Amendment says nothing about hunting at all. The purpose of the 2nd Amendment has nothing to do with
hunting. Do not be misled into debating hunting arguments in defense of the 2nd Amendment. This is a straw man argument..a placebo to get one off the
real purpose of the 2nd Amendment.
Do not misunderstand me here. I am not against hunting or shooting sports. I am all for it. These things require discipline. I am all for discipline
and education. Hunting is an olde American Tradition. I have no problems with this.
Just don't let anyone mislead you about hunting being the purposes of the 2nd Amendment. Remember this when someone brings up Hunting and the 2nd
Amendment. I've seen many of our leaders use this very point in attempting to put limits on the 2nd Amendment.
Thanks to all for thier posts,
