    I've always liked Mike Adams' columns. He's an openly-GOP professor in a rabidly liberal university environment who writes some interesting columns from behind the lines. You may have to click on "Next" to get to the second page.

    Great article, really hits home on the point. Liberals fear that more guns will lead to shootouts over simple arguments, and that is simply because liberals have no self-control and cannot understand how anyone else can.

    Fortunately, even if the libs are armed and get upset and start shooting they are also likely to not be very accurate and a GG can take them down. Darwin prevails and the liberals are eliminated.

    It's kind of interesting to note that people who incorrectly believe that more guns cause more crime base their arguments on emotional appeals. It, therefore, makes sense that those who make their decisions on emption rather than logic would be very emotional people.

    That's why it is so hard to talk to them some times. Once they realize that their position cannot be defended using logic, they usually either resort to shouting about respect for the victims, or lock up and say something like "Well, that's my view, and you aren't going to change it. I don't believe guns belong on the streets."

    P.S. If anyone knows where all these guns on the streets are, I would love to go pick them up!

    I found one once. Over under two shot Derringer style, in 45 long colt. Just laying there in the road.:what:

    But you never know the history of such an item, so I turned it over to the Police.
    Besides, I don't need that kind of weapon anyway.

    I really like Mike Adams. Have spent too much time here lately to keep up on his columns :shock:

    Thanks for the kind words. But I missed the good folks here more than you could have missed me.

    Lurking late at night. Sometimes it is just easier to read than to post.

    Next time you are going to be out this way let me know and we can get a burger someplace.

    Hey there Hawk.. nice to see you back and posting. Missed your input.

    In the final seconds of your life, just before your killer is about to dispatch you to that great eternal darkness, what would you rather have in your hand? A cell phone or a gun?
