    Assuming for the moment that a person believes that eliminating guns is a good thing, how does this nit wit think he would ever accomplish such a goal? It would be cool to build a bicycle path to the moon, too, and about as logistically possible. Another example that is a bit more immediate involves deporting all of the 11 million illegal immigrants in this country, which is another nonsensical, pie-in-the-sky utopian (distopian is more accurate) idea.

    When we read this we should all be grateful that our opposition primarily consists of delusional moonbats like this.

    Wont happen. We are not Europe, thank god. My rifles/pistols are not going to be kept in a safe at a 'gun club'. They are staying right here in my closet. There was a time when more people had guns, but less crime. I dont know if it was an 'arm everybody' thing, but the number of things that carried a death sentence or 30 year prison stretches seemed to work well. Something happened between 1946-1970 that seemed to ruin everything.
    Hm, he no longer should be listened to. Most libs now admit what the 2A is for (although they try to make it more about 'hunting') but this joker is trying to argue for the 'collective right' or the even more ridiculous 'civic right'.

    "slaughter of Indians" - yeah that was a hobby at one point. This must be the same idiot who wrote the nice column about how military reenactors were evil.

    Not very "high road" of his, eh?

    No. False argument. No laws will prevent such an act of a deranged person. What more guns can do is stop it short.

    Agan, no. A false argument. Don't characterize liberty and self defense as a "cold war" strategy. :banghead:

    Thats a perfect example of the naive, sarcastic, hey-I'm-smarter-than-you, too-educated-with-no-common-sense type of person.

    It's like I've said for years... being intelligent doesn't make you smart. The veiled ignorance here is visibly risible :D

    Morford’s a hysterical gun-hater. He’s penned quite a few articles like this. Sadly, as loony as his diatribes are, I think they accurately reflect public opinion where he resides (SF Bay Area).
  9. Sometimes the truth hurts. :p

    No kidding. To me, it's tempting to write a semi-anonymous opposing piece with the hope of be dismissed as unintelligent, ignorant, uneducated etc... and only then reveal my true background. :evil:

    All too true... I lived in the Santa Barbara area for 10 years -- a much more conservative area than SF. Many people there would agree with this nonsense.

    When in doubt, it can be kinda fun to torque on 'em a little...

    Miss Morford, you really need to consider...

    ...that there are a lot of female NRA members who get all tingly too...

    And let's not forget the GLBT community - www.pinkpistols.org - it's sorta difficult to bash someone when they're trying to shove a Glock down the would-be basher's throat - oh, the imagery!

    Now, if those poor children had had someone who could do more to defend them than try to block a door by heroically throwing his poor old carcass in front of it, some of 'em could be being interviewed as witnesses instead of being buried. What we really need is a progressive action toward repeal of the repressive gun laws that only allow thugs like Cho to act without fear.

    I disagree with the premise of the left on guns. They see a utopia without guns. But that is a lie. The true utopia will only occur when people freely own firearms and choose not to do harm with them. Using the FORCE of the government to penalize people to the point of trying to force the utopia they want can not work. It would be taking away freedom or the words they hate free will. Without FREEDOM there can not ever be their prayed for utopia. You just get oppression from the benelovent STATE. Their minds and thinking is evil. I truly believe this. Their politics is NOT based on freedom but oppression. And it is intoxicating to many and to the young on University Campuses. But it is surely a LIE.:what:

    Hey, let's talk about the real benefits of guns! They're fun! They're a hoot! They're trivial!

    Now, let's denigrate the serious purposes of guns. Guns for defense is unenlightened macho BS, mmmkay?

    Right then!

    Now let's be grownups, and get rid of the evil guns, because that's the enlightned, grownup moral thing to do!

    {skips into the sunset, spreading rose petals to the wind, reeking of patchouli}


    This bit amused me the most: >>>Hell, it worked great for the Cold War, didn't it?

    Well, as a matter of fact, it did, and nothing less would have sufficed.

    Edited to add:

    This was my 5,000th post. yay.

    With people like this , until they face evil that wants to do them harm , they'll never get it . I never wish that on anybody , but some could use the rude awakening more than others . I guess the difference between me and him is that faced with someone intent on my harm or death , at least the next day I would be able to write about it , and that's all that matters to me .

    Write that Paper

    How many of us would be willing to write that paper and asked that indivual be canned for all the false arguments in that last article attacking our rights?

    No logical argument or list of statistics will ever convince this man in a million years, but one large BG with a knife or tire iron would be able to make him see the light in a nanosecond.

    For better or worse, here's what I emailed the bloke:

    Tell ya' what -- since you're willing to trivialize my right recognized by the 2nd Amendment, how about I trivialize yours recognized by the 1st? How about we treat anyone who questions a right recognized by an amendment as having committed treason? To heck with this freedom of speech, freedom of the press junk. It's obvious to any thinking person that it's resulted in corrupted youth, immorality that would be scorned by the nation's Founding Fathers, and such subversive organizations as the NRA. So let's get rid of the darned thing. And anyone who speaks out against a fundamental right, well, we'll just line 'em up and shoot 'em...

    Er, um, hey, I guess I just became a traitor, huh?

    Hey, the 2nd is no longer necessary.

    I'm thinking the best way to now move the veterans from Iraq from their uncomfortable billets in the VA hospitals to his nice, comfortable home. And while the vets are there, they can start going through his email and medical records to make sure he's okay. Of course, he will now need to obtain a writing permit for each article he writes, but it's to make certain he doesn't rile people up any.

    Oh, and it shouldn't be too much of a problem to inform his wife that she no longer has the ability to vote. Another one of those pesky amendments that are no longer necessary which I'm sure he'll have no problem in giving up: after all, it really doesn't affect him any.

    And when he's finally tried for writing treasonous publications, the government will just keep trying him in case he happens to slip through the system when a jury foolishly finds him innocent. The government has money. They can keep at him until they succeed.

    Don't apologize. Given the SF head in la la land attitude my often voiced thought is that if this country is ever the victim of a violent terrorist act again that it happen in SF rather than to innocents elsewhere.

    That would seem to me to be the most appropriate place for a homeland security snooze alarm to ring due to the influence these people and the East coast elite have over main stream media pronouncements.

    Morford, though, is just a tabloid shock jock. There are certain showboat types that just love to be what they think is cute. Strictly a matter of stroking one's own ego. Or whatever.
