    The Big Heller Decision Discussion Thread - AFFIRMED 2ND AS INDIVIDUAL RIGHT

    Or maybe the majority was signaling its willingness (desire?) to look at those issues -- that's certainly how Scalia's bit about incorporation and Cruickshank seemed. He was all but saying "Please, please let us look at incorporation." That and issues like "reasonable restriction" and "common...

    The real reason for the Civil War?

    False dichotomy. It's not about one or the other. Fact: The Civil War was about the economic policies pushed by the North Fact: The Civil War was about the South wanting to preserve slavery. One fact does not negate the other. Rarely do wars have single causes. It's kind of like...

    Rights and Responsibilities

    I'll bite. One of the hardest things for me about being a "true believer" in the RKBA is the realization that there are a whole lot of people out there who are not responsible enough to own or keep guns. We belittle some. We call them sheeple. With others, we talk about Darwin and even...

    A modest proposal in answer to Homer ...,er.... Daniel Simpson

    Ratzinger, Your reply isn't a disagreement with what I wrote. I was commenting on the likely outcome of revolution. You commented on a possible cause. Those are two separate topics.

    A modest proposal in answer to Homer ...,er.... Daniel Simpson

    ...revolutions. I agree that the end of communism was a good thing. 2) The violence that accompanied the end of communism in the various *SSRs was not revolution, IMO. Rather, it involved various factions -- some pro-communist, some anti-communist -- attempting to fill the void left by...

    A modest proposal in answer to Homer ...,er.... Daniel Simpson

    Careful What You Wish For I Most Common: Incident (a riot or stand-off is not a revolution). Less Likely: Failed revolution. Rare: Successful revolution -- but that makes things worse. Near Miraculous: Successful revolution -- and that makes things better. Likelihood decreases down the...

    The strange tendancy of some gunowners to dislike all government Regulation

    Yep. I'll also note that as is typical of these discussions, we're given pro-regulation examples that are nearly or more than a century old. Yea Grover Cleveland! Hoorah William McKinley! Huzzah Huzzah Teddy Roosevelt! There's the problem. A century ago, the government stepped in...

    Democrats Stifle Minimum Wage Increase

    Minimum wage laws minimize jobs -- meaning the poor can't buy guns. See! It always comes back to gun control! ;)

    For those who want to stop the "mentally ill" from firearms

    Kessler was head of the FDA, not surgeon general, and although he did look at banning cigarettes (as unapproved drug-delivery devices, interestingly enough), it was not the FDA that sued tobacco companies -- or at least not the big-money cases that you're talking about. There was one...

    Gun-rights banner at Capitol draws outcry over its language

    Plenty have -- it was on the news. It doesn't nothing to help us. It does a lot to hurt us. Yes there is. Any parent would take it as a threat -- you KNOW this when you say it -- therefore it is a threat. The grammar doesn't matter.

    Gun-rights banner at Capitol draws outcry over its language

    See, here's where you revolutionary-wannabees need to learn some logic. Please look up False Dichotomy. No one said anything about being nice, and certainly nothing about being pushovers. We're saying refrain from inflammatory violent rhetoric that does nothing but make it easy for the...

    Gun-rights banner at Capitol draws outcry over its language

    :rolleyes: If you tell someone, "Your daughter should be raped," he will take it as a threat and act accordingly. Everyone knows how it will be recieved. If you make a statement that you know will be received as a threat, you are making a threat. Arguing over the grammar is laughable...

    Gun-rights banner at Capitol draws outcry over its language

    Semantics. Both are threats because any sane speaker would understand that both would be received as threats.

    Gun-rights banner at Capitol draws outcry over its language

    "Your daughter should be raped." "I'm going to rape your daughter." Nope. Smells the same to me. .

    Gun-rights banner at Capitol draws outcry over its language

    I never said we should stop. Rather, I said "I'm in it for the long haul." I said, "there's still a lot of work to do" Why are you purposefully ignoring what I wrote?
