    I try to give people the benefit ofa doubt, I really do. Sometimes all you can do is laugh.

    It's not a radical idea and in fact it is common sense. Why would someone that wants to kill thousands of people come into an area where they know many potential victims are also carrying.

    Israel has a lot of people on the streets with guns. That doesn't stop suicide bombers. Maybe they aren't as afraid of being shot when they are about to blow themselves up?
    I 100% agree that active shooter types who want to kill a lot of people are going to gun free zones, but terrorist who aren't afraid to die?

    The threat of terrorism in America seems pretty overblown for the most part. Just a big scary boogey man to keep people scared and not paying attention to the really scary thing in the world....government.

    It was just an exaggerated statement to prove a point based on a study that was done by the American Enterprise Institute.

    Right, because the fear of terrorists is used to scare us into taking our rights back, rather than giving them up. :quirky

    Have fun with that line of reasoning. :P

    Hey, it's one of the many. It isn't very logical but it passes the "could be possible, makes sense" test.



    We haven't gotten back our rights by simply stating the obvious, that they are in the constitution.


    I think what his sarcasm implied is that the fear of the fabricated "terrorist" threat is used to take away our rights. Exactly how would you manage to turn that around and use it to resort rights?

    Well if we have to use scare tactics just to retain our rights spelled out for us in the constitution then so be it.
    Wow, your posts just get better and better. Lying and fear-mongering for freedom.

    Kind of like killing for peace or F'ing for virginity.

    I'm guessing you have never served in the military. Check your history. Many wars have been fought for peace.

    I'm starting to wonder why you are even on a site like this. You have twisted my posts to attack them..
    Sometimes you have to use any means necessary to regain your rights. .... But I still can legally own my gun and the patriot act had no affect on me.
    I think the problem you are encountering is that some people on this board aren't just pro-guns, they are pro-freedom and liberty in a variety of areas. It seems your thread hit a pocket of them, me included. To me, it is antithetical to freedom to suggest that laws restricting freedoms are good, as long as they don't take MY guns or effect ME.

    Your original post hit a hot button with me for the overt fear mongering that is typically used by people like the Brady campaign. I can understand wanting to try and use their tactics against them, but I won't do it. I have enough reasons to show that owning guns are good without resorting to "Brady is helping terrorists kill us!OMG".

    That being said, previous posts probably came out too harshly, don't take it too personally. We're all on different paths toward understanding freedom and liberty, and sometimes the people who are further ahead just get a little frustrated that everyone hasn't fully caught on yet.

    Let's set the record straight. I am NOT for any law that restricts any right in any way for any reason.

    But my view is that if 2A rights are taken away all others will soon follow.

    I think society should handle problems and not the government.
