    His 'baby' no good for self-defense
    last updated: August 01, 2007 06:48:31 AM


    In response to Michelle Malkin ("Mocking gun owners puts Demos at risk," July 26, Page B-7): Though it is quite clear that your first and foremost desire is to trash all Democrats and liberals, your lack of knowledge about guns is showing.

    The AR-15 and other assault rifle-type weapons are extremely poor self-defense weapons, for their primary function is to shoot long distances with great penetrating power.

    A good self-defense weapon doesn't need a long range. If you're shooting at someone 100 yards away, it's probably not really self-defense, and a bullet that can puncture thick walls poses a danger to innocent people in adjoining rooms or buildings.

    Anyone who would hold up an AR-15 and call it his "baby' has psychosexual problems that should be treated with medical help, not the infusion of more weapons.

    Democrats aren't against all guns; we just don't want some unstable, untrained and unsupervised clown having access to more powerful weaponry than the average law enforcement officer.

    As a conservative, I would think that their safety would be your primary concern, not the right of some nimrod to own a weapon as poorly suited to self-defense as a Tomahawk missile.

    1.) are extremely poor self-defense weapons [WRONG]

    2.) primary function is to shoot long distances with great penetrating power [WRONG]

    3.) If you're shooting at someone 100 yards away, it's probably not really self-defense

    [ YOUR EITHER COMMITING A FELONY OR IT IS SELF DEFENSE!!!]

    4.) Anyone who would hold up an AR-15 and call it his "baby' has psychosexual problems that should be treated with medical help, not the infusion of more weapons.

    [ Obviously this person has no passion for anything!!]

    5.) Democrats aren't against all guns; we just don't want some unstable, untrained and unsupervised clown having access to more powerful weaponry than the average law enforcement officer. [ Define clown, as in Assclown?], [ It is not gun the owners fault if LEO’s do not keep up with better hardware]

    6.) As a conservative, I would think that their safety would be your primary concern, not the right of some nimrod to own a weapon as poorly suited to self-defense as a Tomahawk missile.

    [ a Tomahawk cruise missile is for offensive strikes so I guess it would be poor for defense.] [ as a conservative what?]

    It always amazes me how many people feel that firearms should only be obtained for the sole purpose of hunting, or "perhaps", self defense.

    Am I the only one that doesn't notice those two uses being listed while reading the Second Amendment?

    I have met Tomahawk, and I don't think he has any missiles. Besides, Even if he did, I think he can be trusted.

    I was thinking "ASSCLOWN" myselfwhen I read the Article, This guy must be from Manasses PD.

    Hawkflyerand you other Boys from over there in VA country should maybe pay him a visit and bring along your "BABIES"and show him how youdress them and polish them. JustREEEEEALY taking care of your "BABIES". Also tell himthat you sleep with the"BABY" too and that will Absolutely get the attention
