    Was talking to a friend at work, and she knows I have guns. Then we talked about the VT stuff, she mentioned that I should get rid of my Glock 19 because it's used in a mass killing. :scrutiny:

    Tell your friend your Glock 19 had an exorcism and is all right now.

    I'm keeping mine.

    Honestly, I bet the Glock 19 is either the single most popular model of semiautomatic pistol in the U.S. or at least in the top ten. The Glock platform in general is easily among the most popular pistol platforms in the U.S if not the most popular. There are Glocks everywhere. There's always several on the shelf of any gun store new and used, there's always several in the pawn shops, etc. The pistol had to be something, odds are pretty good it was going to be a Glock.

    I've not getting rid of my Chevrolet Silverado because an irresponsible drunk driver used a Chevrolet Silverado model automobile to cause senseless death and pain.

    You know what though it's a pretty good pistol. I hope the market is flooded with evil Glock 19s and they go for cheap...:D

    Ask her if a drunk driver uses the same make and model of automobile you have to kill a family in a car crash, should you also sell your vehicle?

    Edit: posted at the same time as Euclidean :)

    Tell her that she should sell her Ford because it has been responsible for 1000s of deaths.

    I think he is 100% correct. ALL G19's are tainted. But being the good soul I am, I will buy as many as I can for, say $25.00 each, and keep them locked up from doing the public any more harm. :D

    I didn't see a glut of used Buicks or Oldsmobiles (can't remember which) when Teddy Kennedy went off the bridge.

    I like the analogy about women and prostitutes -
    Just because one has the same anatomy/physiology does not make one a prostitute.

    Glock 19 because it's used in a mass killing

    Tell her, no this isn't the gun that was used in the mass killings! There are more than a single glock 19 floating around this world, 19 wasn't it's serial number it was it's model number. Then tell her 'thanks though, because if it WAS the gun used, it would be worth a LOT more!'



    or maybe you totally misinterpreted her statement

    Maybe she saw that you generally have to shoot someone 3 times with a glock 19, and she wants you to get something more powerful.

    Sell it! You should've sold it before VT.

    I mean; Why would you want such an ugly gun in the first place?

    lol

    Ask if she will no longer fly onboard a Boeing 767 or 757 airliner. Two of each killed a total of over 3000 people 6 years ago.


    No, wait!! The TERRORISTS killed the people, not the airplanes!! :banghead:

    Nice "friend". Sounds like you have an excellent opportunity to educate, as she's obviously closed her mind to original thought for a long time... ;)

    Did you tell her it's one of the most commonly sold guns?

    The same kind of gasoline in my car has been used in plenty of arsons... what should I do?

    Should we stop using ammonium-nitrate based fertilizers because ammonium-nitrate was used in the Oklahoma city bombing? Bear in mind it's one of the most effective, and easiest to manufacture fertilizers there are.

    I'd get rid of the glock myself. But for different reasons. All hail the stainless steel gods.:neener:

    I have a glock 19 that I've had for 15 years. Tell her that my glock's 15 years of paficism trumps Cho's few weeks of ownership.


    And tell her for me that she is a reactionary and overly emotional nitwit of the type that are largely responsible for the idiocy we are seeing in our country. Considering the number of fatal automobile accidents we have every year, she may want to break out the Huffy.



    Sorry for taking the low road on this one.


    EDIT: Most people can't tell one handgun from another. Someone that is that reactionary is most likely of the crowd that wouldn't know a Stainless Colt 1911 from a Glock 19. But I suppose she'd want to get rid of them all.

    Sell your friend and use the money to buy another Glock 19 to keep the one you have company.

    Plenty of very bad people have used the AK, but nobody is getting rid of theirs because of that. And the gangster era thugs all loved their 1911.

    Keep your gun.

    Tell her that thousands of peace officers use the 19 every day to protect and uphold the freedoms of this nation.

    You might be different, but I generally don't keep friends who are that stupid.
