  • I’m done with these blogs...the amount of ignorance and stupidity is beyond measure. I've learned lots of things from you anti-gun people though, like: This is from a blog by a previous voluminous poster to the Advocate. Left because for what ever reason he didn't want to be identified with his wya out Left wing comment.
    This comment just keeps being relevant. The latest from anonymous LW blogger

    “I talked to my daughter about Rick Perry's idea of arming the teachers...She let me know in no uncertain terms that it was a stupid idea. She studied to be a teacher not law enforcement. I can see a lot of panicking and innocent people getting hurt.” How many got killed in the latest?
    What Perry actually said rather than the words LW Straight Dem party blogger wrote were “Allow Teachers who were licensed to carry guns in schools”
    The Democrats in Texas should understand Obama’s words We won you lost get used to it could be applied to the Texas Dems concerning Perry

    I’m done with these blogs...the amount of ignorance and stupidity is beyond measure. I've learned lots of things from you anti-gun people though, like1) It's easy to buy a fully automatic weapon, and for cheap!
    2) ANYBODY (even little Joey) can convert their semi-automatic weapon to full auto with a rasp and bubble gum.
    3) NOBODY "needs" a gun...for any purpose...OR
    4) The ONLY purpose for a gun is to kill people.
    5) You can buy a thousand round "clip" (no, of COURSE it's not "magazine"!)
    6) Anyone owing a gun, for any reason, is a coward OR a gun nut OR paranoid
    7) The Second Amendment isn't relevant any more and/or it should be interpreted completely literally ("all you need is a single shot musket").
    . Congratulations. All you guys do with your idiotic comments is convince us to dig in our heels harder. You're ignorant, you're unwilling to compromise, and we don't trust you at all. Congratulations.
    P.S. By the way, you DO know that Dianne Feinstein has a concealed carry permit, right?
    More from the LW mill
    “It’s been estimated that 40% of illegal gun sales are done at unregulated gun shows.”
    Estimated by whom?

  • Doctors vs. Gun Owners
    Doctors(A) The number of physicians in the U.S. is 700,000.
    (B) Accidental deaths caused by Physicians per year are 120,000.
    (C) Accidental deaths per physician is 0.171.
    Statistics courtesy of U.S. Dept of Health and Human Services.
    Now think about this:
    Guns(A) The number of gun owners in the US is 80,000,000.
    (Yes, that's 80 million)
    (B) The number of accidental gun deaths per year, all age groups is 1,500.
    (C) The number of accidental deaths per gun owners is 000188.
    Statistics courtesy of FBI
    So, statistically, doctors are approximately 9,000 times
    more dangerous than gun owners.
    Remember, 'Guns don't kill people, doctors do.'
    FACT: NOT EVERYONE HAS A GUN, BUT Almost everyone has at least one doctor.
    This means you are over 900 times more likely to be killed by a doctor as
    a gun owner!!!
    Please alert your friends to this alarming threat.
    We must ban doctors before this gets completely out of hand!!!!!
    Out of concern for the public at large, I withheld the statistics on
    lawyers for fear the shock would cause people
    to panic and seek medical attention!

  • mmediately ban assault weapons and pistols, such as the Glock."
    Glock is merely the name of a company who produces firearms. A "Glock pistol) is simply a semiautomatic hand gun, the same as a Colt, Smith and Wesson and probably a dozen other. AUTOMATIC GUN PURCHASES AND OWNERSHIP ARE SEVERELY RESTRICTED. Just what features does a weapon have to have to qualify for an "assault weapon? Oh yes a bayonet mount is one. A military "assault weapon" has full automatic fire capabilities. None are for sale in the USA.

    Ron Manderscheid may be executive director of the National Association of County Behavioral Health and Developmental Disability Directors. Contact him at rmanderscheid@nacbhd.org But he obviously doesn't know his anus from second base about so called "assault weapons
