    To really puts things in perspective, this country has the capacity to manufacture 1,050,000,000 sheets of drywall per year.

    To put things in perspective a full grown Pigeon has about 10,000 feathers and beats its wings up to ten times per second, while maintaining a heart rate of 600 beats per minute up to 16 hours without rest.

    Also, one retard at a gun show will probably get in trouble and get his ass sued off. Next story...

    Thanks for the reply CK, it's my opinion that the right is not the only side that has it's share of extreme info sites. (Breitbart, red state, blazing....etc.) I always try to post more reasonable informative sites when I can.

    Also a bit off topic, but my favorite climate site has a very good article on blog etiquette. Very applicable and well worth the read.

    Agreed. Regardless if a person is for or against the second amendment, one certainty is that there are a lot of dumbasses out there, naturally there are a lot of idiots owning guns as well.

    I've never been to a gun show that doesn't check and band firearms brought in at the door. Granted, they don't search you, so they may have brought them in concealed.

    That's because it can't, it's not physically possible.

    Tom is an idiot that doesn't understand how firearms work or the current laws related to them. He wants to make laws on guns and their safety mechanism without any knowledge what so ever.

    So all new firearms have those chamber/action locks? What's the first thing you do when you by one?

    You throw that away.

    It's this kind of incidents that is making it too easy of a battle for the left to get what they want. I'm for a law that says you have to be of average IQ and intelligence to be able to own a gun.

    I wonder if the media will report how many murders, rapes, and shootings are committed by blacks on MLK Day?

    Do you want to compare guns shows to a left wing movement?

    I looked through a magazine the missionary's wife concealed (Mogozine? Whot hoppens?)
    I see how people who are civilized bung you with automobiles (You know you can get hurt that way Daniel?)
    At the movies they have got to pay many coconuts to see (What do they see, Darling?)
    Uncivilized pictures that the newsreel takes of me...

    ooooooooh bongo bongo bongo I don't wonna leave the congo oh no no no no noooooo.....

    Nice! Another stupid apples to oranges comparison. Do you fucking morons have any debate skills at all?

    All this story is is ironic. It's ironic because of current events and all the gun nuts coming out of the woodwork to "try" and add substance to the debate.

    It's a non issue because less people are shot/killed at gun shows than are killed or injured by lightning every year.


    Instead you fucking idiots fly off the handle and make the stupidest claims and analogies.

    To fire it unintentionally someone has to have their finger on the trigger and squeeze it.

    And just so you know, it is just as possible to unintentionally fire a handgun with an external safety. Human error.

    Ad hominem, you lose. Do you have any idea how ironic your post is? I guess not.

    Um, don't lump everyone into the you guys category. I don't lump all anti-gun people into one. Turns out that the vast majority are highly highly uneducated on firearms and quite a few are willing to at least listen.

    Thanks for proving my point;)

    Have you said any stupid shit in this thread? No? Then I'm not talking about you.

    There are plenty of pro gun people that are reasoned and can be talked to, these assholes aren't them. They represent an extreme and loud view that drown out any real conversation.

    No, I just don't like group associations, not that is be offended. I do agree that the gun show shootings are ironic. I haven't confirmed it but apparently one of them might have been a police officer responsible for clearing firearms entering the building. I'm not super interested because single cases, even when reported together don't really interest me. If CNN reported every single person that Has died of the flu this winter there would be widespread flu panic.

    And even then, you treat the gun as if it were still loaded.

    ALWAYS point the muzzle of your gun in a safe direction - no exceptions.

    NEVER put your finger on the trigger unless you are prepared to shoot and gun is pointed at the thing that you intend to shoot.

    Sadly, we let morons own guns. And by moron, I mean the kind that are unwilling or incapable of following the 4 simple rules, above.

    As to cars.. There are plenty of morons who shouldn't be driving either. People who text and drive should be dragged out of their cars and beaten mercilessly. These a**hats that weave in and out of different lanes should lose their license for 30 days. People that cut you off to pull in the left hand lane and then drive 10 mph UNDER the speed limit should be sent to Germany and forced to drive on the autobahns for 6 months. I could go on for quite a bit on this. You want to save lives in the US? Crack down mercilessly on braindead, rude, malicious drivers.

    you pull the trigger or you dont


    intention doesnt matter

    that guy that did it 3 times in a year or whatever should be fired, because hes an idiot

    being an idiot doesnt mean stuff should get banned
