    Arm yourself with some quick come-back arguments and lines for the anti-gun crowd:




    Ill start.

    There are more Americans killed by alcohol abuse than by firearms.
    How many shootings are alcohol induced??
    Should we ban the sale of booze??
    Should we make laws that you cannot buy beer in a hi-cap container like a 30 pack??
    Would it help if beer were only available in 6-packs
    Why does anyone need a fifth of whiskey??

    If deer had rifles, how many people would hunt?

    You do not banter. You take action and let your congressperson know their retention hangs on their support of legitimate gun owners. Nothing retroactive, nothing registered, nothing taxed, nothing that takes jobs away from US manufacturers.

    What if the person you are arguing with is also a prohibitionist?

    tell them there are two kinds of people, those who stand up and those who bend over then thank them for showing which one they are.

    Firearms are not the only thing affected by your proposed legislature, the regulation of private property is a slippery slope that could soon turn your hobby or passion into an illegal past-time. I am advocating the ability to possess and control my own property without government interference.

    You are thinking small picture, I am thinking big.

    Insulting people is obviously the best method to persuade them to change their mind. Why didn't i think of that?

    Credit cards probably kill a lot more people than do firearms. How many suicides and murders occur each year because of the debt associated with the abuse of credit cards? There have been umpteen changes in credit card regulations over the past 5 years that are aimed at curbing the abuse yet people continue to get in trouble by poor use of a good tool. I wonder how many politicians are trying to ban credit cards? I use credit cards for virtually EVERYTHING I spend including paying bills, groceries, gas, etc. I carry a little bit of cash and maybe write 5 checks per month. I have not paid a single penny in credit card interest in over 10 years because I use the cards responsibly.
    I own guns that are legal to own. I do not abuse those guns and have never gone on a killing spree. Why should we implement new regulations just because there are a few people who abuse their right to own a gun. A gun is a tool and if properly used is not a danger to anyone. It can even save your life. a credit card is a tool that, if properly used, will ot hurt anyone and could help you out of some hard times.
    They can invent new rules to control the use of anything but the bottom line is that some people are going to misuse any tool. Cars, cell phones, credit cards, alcohol(technically not a tool I guess), tobacco, guns, whatever.

    Just use the same comebacks we've always used and principles we've always stood by, as the latest mass murder really changed nothing factually. If you take away our guns, then only criminals--including mass murderers--will have them. That's just as true as ever--well, maybe even more so if, hypothetically, mass murders are really on the rise.

    What has changed are views and emotions, which are powerful factors working against us, but that just means we'll have to try harder to overcome prejudice.

    anti gun rights crowd are not open to reason, you lose nothing by thanking them.

    if the OP mentioned folks whom are ignorant of the facts and open to reason there are no "come-backs", there is only the telling the truth, using logic and reason for they have not yet lost the ability to think.

    You want to take my guns because you say it will stop violence. I refuse. You mad.

    I give you my guns, violence doesn't stop, and now I can't defend myself. Me mad.

    Better you mad.

    Do I need to apply for a permit to be able to speak my mind on the interwebs or write a letter-to-the-editor in a newspaper?

    Do I need to apply for an exemption to be able to be free from illegal search and seizure?

    Do I need to receive training and have local law-enforcement authorization to freely exercise my religion?

    Do I need to pay an exorbitant tax to be able to not be forced to house and feed troops in my own home? *

    Should I only be able to refuse to incriminate myself where the government thinks it's appropriate and 'reasonable'?

    Why is the Second amendment any different? If it was interpreted the same way that every other amendment is interpreted by those who love "a living constitution", we would all be required to own guns, know how to use them, and have them on our person at all times.

    Matt

    *I'm already paying an exorbitant tax. It might be cheaper to house some of them in my own home. :)

    morcey, I tried to have a discussion with an anti at work, and I brought up the rest of the Bill of Rights...and he was JUST FINE GETTING RID OF THE WHOLE BILL OF RIGHTS. No problem at all, government should be allowed to tell us how to do anything.
    Scary - they walk among us.

    I am surprised Bloomberg has not banned large beers in restaurants and bars because of the high calories--no wait, that would cut into his tax revenue.

    Jerry, it's not the anit-gun folks we have to worry about it the majority of the population who, generally, have no strong feelings about firearms one way or another.

    We need to conduct ourselves as gentlemen and ladies at all times, but with extra care right now. the last thing we need right now is one more person thinking that all gun owners are angry smart asses.

    Swimming pools have killed more kids than so-called "assault weapons"... therefore, in the interests of the children, we should ban the private possession of swimming pools. No one "needs" their own swimming pool - they can just go to a local community pool if they want to swim.

    I mean - if it can save just ONE child's life, isn't it worth it?

    The CNN timeline of the Sandy Hook tragedy showed 20 minutes between the first 911 call and the arrival of cops onsite.

    There was much bad info published in those first days, but I have not seen an update on that - anyone have better info? If it was truly 20 minutes, why?

    old bear, its fairly easy to distinguish between an anti gun rights person and one who just hasnt been told the truth yet. conduct yourself accordingly but refuse to walk on egg shells.

    Do NOT stoop to the level of exchanging one-liners in this critical time.

    If somebody comes at you with a one-liner, you should INSIST that they sit down and defend their position fully. You should INSIST that they answer questions that you will ask.

    Don't get into some sort of junior-high-school exchange of one-liner rhetoric with people who gratuitously attack your Constitutional rights.

    Some people call 911, some people are 911.

    Why do you call the police when these happen? Because they have guns. See anything there......?
