1) Nothing in particular.
2)Not a bit, I am highly non-judgemental.
3) I haven't done anything "hardcore", nor do I feel like some badass with a gun. TBH, I am still not 100% comfortable with my handgun in my
house, even though it's fully locked open.
4) Yes, I know my immediate neighbors all around (except behind), and know and regularly visit probably 15-20 different families in the
In regards to protection, where do you draw the line? Do you need semi-automatics to shoot at Criminals? Do you need NUKES to defend yourself?
Where would that leave the country or the world?
1) I draw the line exactly where the Supreme Court of the United States has decided the line exists.
2) I do not need them, but I have the right to have semi-automatics if I feel so inclined, to yes, maim or kill in defense of my own life. Nukes?
please don't drag that sophomoric argument into this.
3) Probably alot like WY, ID, MT, UT...very low violent crime rates cause damn near all of us have guns. Nobody wants to bust into a house in these
parts if there's ANY chance a person is home.
Why do you feel, that every crime warrants DEATH!? You sound like the old salem witch trials.. Burn her, she is a witch! Kill the criminal
that busted down your door, for wanting to have bread and food and money like you do.
1) I don't feel that every crime warrants death, and neither do most. This point truly shows where you are at. You have dehumanized the group which
you disagree with, and turned us into a caricature of some evil sub-human. And sadly, history has proven that really large scale mass murder begins
with just that thought process.
Some huge amount of the time, like (98% or something), Guns stop criminal acts simply by being present in the hand of the victim/bystander. I'll
give you the same link I gave the last guy I responded to: www.justfacts.com...
(but I doubt you'll read it).
FEAR is the key. Nothing says your are so SCARED then by having a gun. you FEAR the criminal is going to take your life. You FEAR Death. You
FEAR that the criminal will take your FOOD or your PROPERTY. You are SCARED of starving, and scared of having NO possessions.
Interesting how your reflection of my last post, where I emphasized the fact that wanted to be prepared to defend my family, is all about you accusing
ME of all this.
Well, lemme see: I don't have much in the way of stuff, never have, never placed much value in it. Hell, before I got married my life would fit in
the back of a pickup truck. So I am sure I don't fear the loss of stuff.
I don't fear death, okay maybe a little, but I'd say less than the average guy. I have always had a strong conviction about life and the hereafter,
and even close personal losses have never tore me up becuase I am so certain that this is not the end.
Scared of starving? Okay, yeah, you got me there. I don't want to literally starve to death. But you know what? I'd rather starve to death than
watch my wife or kids do the same. But that being said, you list fear of a criminal taking my food...Nope, sorry. That's not me.
Did Jesus have a stash of weapons to unload and protect his family? Did Martin Luther King, march down and shoot up as many people as he
could?? No, do you know what they did, they went RIGHT INTO the face of danger with NO WEAPONS. They spoke. They realized that you don't fight fire
with fire, you fight it with water. They knew you don't fight hatred with more hate, you fight it with love. That is true strength.
1) Then said He unto them, But now, he that hath a purse, let him take it, and likewise his scrip: and he that hath no sword, let him sell his
garment, and buy one.[Luke 22:36]
You know, my kids are fighting, my wife's out of town, and I am tired of trying to write this post at the moment.
So lemme just Clif's Note the rest:
I give 10% of income to charity
I regularly give donations to Charities which help homeless, under-educated families, and single mothers and children.
I occasionally work in the neighborhood soup kitchen when I have the time.
And I would give food to anyone who came to my door hungry. And I have. Repeatedly.
I don't carry a gun around with me. I own guns, which are kept locked at home.
I'm not scared of life. I am prepared better than you is all.
Fight if you must, and use your hand strength, but at the point of death, you should restrain. Everyone, including criminals have a right to
live, no matter how messed up they are.
Yeah, bro, sorry. There's no way I will trade my wife or kids' lives in for the life of a person who would want to kill them.
