I've noticed how disgusting Yahoo has become. Non-stop Obama support in their reporting, day after day, minute after minute. It scares me to know what sort of impact such mass-viewed sites have on opinions of the unknowing, and the willing, to vote for someone with a mere "news celebrity" status. Yikes.

Anyways, I've noticed a TON of anti support from people in their Answers section for question posting. Without wasting too much time, I think fighting back in some of these topics would be good place to pursaude fencesitters, with the views it probably gets from them and the antis together. Maybe have a little fun exposing their lies along the way. Or maybe I just get too upset myself reading the lies which people spew there.

Here is an example of a topic there gone anti: http://answers.yahoo.com/question/index;_ylt=AtM_Ubz6ISMucq5y5N0FXL_sy6IX;_ylv=3?qid=20080827150519AAzhZmS

Tell me if I done good...

How about a little food for thought?
-In the world, we are one of the few nations to enforce almost no gun control
-We have the largest death by gun rate of any nation in the world, most of them accidental shootings (not robberies, not crimes)

Cite some sources. Or don't, because there aren't any legit sources for this patently false info. You are clearly obfuscating the so-called "youth deaths by gun" with "accidental deaths by gun," which is exactly what anti-gun agit-prop wants you to do. Oh, those youth deaths by gun? Those are gang members, 18 and under, or 21 and under in some jurisdictions. Are you really implying that our gang problem is because of a lack of gun control? News flash: felons can't get guns in gun stores ANYWAY.

-Obama's only responses have been to try and remove assault rifles and other so-called "standard hunting guns" from the hands of your every day citizen, and the removal of the concealed carry permit laws is to prevent people from keeping concealed weaponry on hand.

GREAT thinking! Who would DARE conceal a weapon without a permit? Certainly no one that pays attention to the law in the first place...

There's no link between concealing weapons and better family safety
-The "times of crisis" you are talking about are when a criminal enters your house or holds you up for money in the alley way. If you happen to be carrying a gun in these instances, not only does this make the criminal more shaky (and therefore more likely to shoot you or someone else), but the fact that you have the gun makes it more likely that you would shoot someone. It exacerbates the situation.

Exactly. Not only that, but the poor ole criminal probably had a hard time growing up and his frustrations with "the system" are perfectly legitimate. You must simply submit to violent people; it's for the greater good. Thanks for that newsflash.

-All of this really means nothing anyway. Obama has never once stated that he wants to get rid of all guns in this country. A weapon limitation is not the same as a weapon ban. If criminals can get dangerous assault rifles through a nearby gun store, that makes it a hell of a lot easier to commit a crime using one. He's saying at least take these most dangerous weapons out of arm's reach, so that the only criminals who could get it would have to pay a lot more and go a lot further to obtain them.

See my earlier rebuttal.

-If you want to protect your family, feel free to. You don't need the most advanced gun to do it.

So you think only The State, or is it Our Great Leaders, need access to the most advanced weaponry. That makes perfect sense... because we exist only to serve them. Politicians and military leaders are so much more important than Average Joes like ourselves, so we should be humble and let them hoard all the good guns...we don't DESERVE the best protection, right?

I was going to jump in but it is being handled quite well so far! Conwict, you done good. I like that we're getting in early on this one. Great work guys, and thanks to the OP for the heads-up.

Oh, and where are my manners? R93, welcome to The High Road! Excellent post, stick around awhile...

Guys, that is spectacular posting.

It really makes me feel good to see truth instead of all these lies that the anti-gun individuals constantly conjure up, in a place where it can actually be posted and viewed by opposing sides.

If one person can be changed in the way they think about things, I think that's enough to make it worth while.

I noticed a lot of these topics go nuts with views right at the beginning when posted, then trail off, as so many more topics are posted by the minute. So if anyone feels like starting a topic at this place, do so and post the link please!

If your post disappeared it was probably because it strayed to far from the OP action plan.

Digg.com and reddit.com used to be pretty fun to browse through now it is OBAMA-NATION non-stop. I find I get more work done now that I am not using those two sites to begin my internet browsing sessions.
