    owners were all super-ninjas who coulda dropped any of those mass shooters in their tracks if only they'da been there with their Glocks.

    And now you're telling me that defensive gun shooters can't hit the broad side of a battleship unless they spray and pray . . . .

      Ironically, though, recently one carry permit holder did just that... with, wait for it, his glock!

        offensive comments, and practically no public support (outside of RKBA)!

        Are you sure that you're even on the RIGHT (or left, in the case of Dkos) blog?

        There can be no protection locally if we're content to ignore the fact that there are no controls globally.

          Please show me an offensive comment I've made.  Hint:  countering a popular opinion with facts backed by links isn't offensive simply because you don't agree.

           Ergo, my position is unpopular, so I'm simply wrong or need to be shouted down?

          I spend a lot of time highlighting Illinois gun laws and promoting their passage nationwide.  A lot of DK contributors say they want to do something about gun violence, by which they mean a ban.  I don't agree and yes, there's going to be a difference of opinion.

          You may or may not have noticed, I tend to post a lot of links supporting my position.  Follow them, debunk them, prove me wrong.

          Are you sure that you're even on the RIGHT (or left, in the case of Dkos) blog?
          I'm a pro-gun, pro-choice, pro-equality, pro-union, pro-legalization democrat from Illinois.  Which other blog are you suggesting?

        weekly gun deaths, that show us all these wonderful successful gun-defense uses that you claim must be going on.

        Should be several hundred a week, right?

        Get cracking . . . .

        •  Another contributor has that gig. (0+ / 0-)

          Maybe I can do a weekly diary on a national foid card, because, thats what I advocate?

          It's a simple concept though, I wouldn't get past two weeks of Illinois foid card history and material, but we'll see how it goes.

            Alas, it sounds to me as if you are just as much in love with the whole revolution-porn gun thingie as the Bircher kooks are.

            Some "revolutionaries" never learn the simple lesson that picking up guns is the FINAL step, not the first. Before that comes years or decades of boring-ass drudge organizing work--the kind of stuff that the revolution-porn fans don't like to be bothered with.  (sigh)
