A parent's duty... how come the contradiction?

Gf made me watch "Maid in Manhattan" with her today.

Ok, there's a few "messages" from the left that I don't understand..

First, the "man" is always trying to keep the [latinos, blacks, gays, lesbians, minorities etc..] down in the projects.. Of course, they actually mean "the government" their solution is to increase government, which is the one keeping them in the projects..

But here's what I don't get::

A parent considers how "safe" the neighborhood is for a child. Well... what? You want a medal for that? It's your JOB, as a parent to keep your kids as safe as possible.. (or as safe as you can afford).

So picking a safe neighborhood is "good parenting"..

BUT, if you purchase a gun for the intent of protecting your home and providing a "safe" home for your child... this is EVIL??:confused:

How do they live with this logic, or do they have no logic at all? How can they think this way, and have it not bother them?

How is 1+1=3 just perfectly fine in their world??:banghead:

Very few, if any, anti-gun arguments stand up to logic.

Sorry twoblink, I would try to explain logically, but that will never work when it comes to Liberal practices.

As jjmorgan64 said, you answered your own question .

They don't understand the concepts of privacy and personal property.

They think "share-and-share alike" regardless of whether or not you really WANT to share your TV, microwave, toilet, or Glock.

They don't acknowledge your right to have 100% control over what you own, whether it's a bag of chips, a six pack, or a box of 9mm.

Therefore, it's perfectly reasonable to them that the "neighborhood" children and adults will have easy, free, and reasonable access to your toilet, beer, and Glock.

Ogden Nash penned "Good fences make good neighbors," but they think that means fences that don't squeal. :rolleyes:

Not related, but just curious. Did they have Chinese "voice overs"? :D

Now back to the subject...
Folks may try to make you think it that way, but you would be surprised at the amount of guns found in the "projects" that are held not by gangbangers, but by parents that are needing protection. Everyone there knows that the police and only a "clean up crew".

Good Shooting

Yes, and that is why the "removal" of "cheap saturday night specials" did nothing but hurt the inner city. You think these poor parents can afford an HK P7??

The very people they hurt is the very people they claim to want to protect..

Nope, they just have chinese subtitles.. Voiceovers suck, they really ruin a movie, as there are vocal tones that really set the mood and transmit what the actor is trying to convey..

I dunno Twoblink, one of the gun-grabber sites listed the HK P7M8 as a 'Saturday Night Special'. Heck by Saturday night I'm so poor I don't have money left to shoot my P7.

"I'd shoot you, but I spent so much damn money on the P7 I can't afford bullets!"

Chris Rock had a session talking about that...:D

I think when they say a P7 is a Saturday Night Special, they mean, it might be the only date that's a sure thing on Saturday night :D

How can they think this way

Easy, when you base your ideals on incomplete ideas, you naturally end up w an incomplete half truth.

Leftists are moral and intellectual children. They want what they want, and they want it right now. They don't think in terms of cause and effect. They don't think in terms of good and evil or right and wrong. They don't think in terms of rights and responsibilities. They're ruled by fear, ignorance, superstition, whimsy, and more fear.

We expect that sort of behavior of small children, and gradually teach them to become adults. Leftists are overgrown children.

two, you must understand that to the Left, the government is the mommy and the daddy. The government must keep you safe, especially from yourself.

You do not belong to yourself. You belong to the hive. The hive needs you to further the interests of the hive.

If you are armed and can protect yourself and your family, you may reject the hive. This may lead to a loss of power of the queen and confusion in her mound.

The more helpless you are, the more you need the hive and the more powerful the queen.

Well, it seems everyone else answered your question. Thank Christ. Since I have dyscalculia -- 1+1=3 sounded about right to me.:neener: :D

Dr Jones..

It's the same conclusion I reached with the Steyr pistol debates; there are just people who shouldn't own steyrs. It doesn't matter how much I try to sell them the facts that Steyrs are as safe as any other pistol.

I think the contradictions are so great in what the liberals think and what they do; but I think they do speak some truth. They are so irrationally fearful of a gun that being close to the cryptonite that is the gun, will make them weak and MORE irrational in their behavior. If that is what they conclude, I have to take their word for it and conclude, they have proven (to me at least) that they shouldn't own guns..

There will be a natural segregation, that will be obvious... Water seeks it's own level, as do people. Those who want to be sheeple, will be, those who don't won't be.
