    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    Tired of your word games. How does it "protect" people? Just say it! JUST SAY HOW IT DOES THIS. Is it because it's shiny? Is it because it is "L-shaped"? Is it because it comes from WalMart? HOW DOES A GUN PROTECT PEOPLE? How does a gun protect people? Great equalizer of WHAT? What...

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    THAT'S BECAUSE THE GUN REPRESENTS THE VERY REAL POSSIBILITY OF KILLING A HUMAN. THAT IS WHY IT IS USED AS A DETERENT. IT IS BECAUSE THE GUN IS SPECIFICALLY MADE TO MAIM OR KILL LIVING THINGS. Surely even YOU can understand this simple point, right?

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    I would be quite happy with people like you and the other posters on this board having no guns whatsoever. But I am a realist and know that isn't going to happen. As a rational person living in the USA I realize the best we may be able to get is stronger (much stronger) control on gun...

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    Why can't you understand a simple question? How does the gun provide protection? (Hint: you are going to ultimately have to say that the gun represents the threat of bodily harm to any attackers. That's because guns are made for that specific purpose).

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    You do realize that there is no actual law of physics that makes that impossible. Right? I mean you do realize that right? The Constitutional protection you currently enjoy (and I dearly hope YOU don't have a gun) is already infringed and it is already circumscribed and limited by court...

    How, exactly does a gun protect people? Go ahead. I'll wait.

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    Not even close. And literally no one is arguing against that. I'm even OK with you having that capability. I just want to make sure you are licensed (annually), have extensive background checks and be registered in your town as a gun owner precisely because it is a piece of equipment meant...

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    You are incorrect. Let me explain it to you. Guns were initially invented for war, ie to kill or maim other people. Even on this board today people constantly reference "protection" as well as "hunting", two activities that leverage 100% the reason guns exist (to kill or maim). So you trot...

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    We have discussed this but you remain incorrect in assuming that the gun is not made specifically to harm or kill living things. THAT IS PRECISELY WHY IT CAN BE USED TO PROTECT PEOPLE. Did you ever take a logic class? It seems not.

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    Fire extinguishers were not invented specifically to kill living things. If a thug breaks into my house and steals all of my fire extinguishers it is unlikely to increase the rate of homicides in the area significantly. I'm sure there's some possibility that it would increase the rate of...

    Study of 1 million students finds that universal masking works

    This is one of those aspects of the whole thing that causes me some concern. I got the vaccine because I sense the risk is lower for it than COVID which we know can do some damage. But I would be the last person to force anyone to take a risk with their own bodies they don't feel safe about...

    Afghan president flees the country as Taliban move on Kabul

    Honestly I don't think it was any more Trump's fault than anything else. Afghanistan is called the "Graveyard of Empire" for a reason. At 20 years we gave it as good a go at stabilizing their nation as anyone could have done. I'm sure being occupied by Americans wasn't their first choice but...

    Why Our Brains Weren't Made To Deal With Climate Change

    Let's talk "empirical evidence" for a moment. Let us say you walk into a room and flick a switch on the wall. Suddenly the light comes on in the room. There is a very real possibility that that light switch is NOT connected to the light but it was pure random chance that the light came on...

    Antarctica, a clear Sign of Global Warming

    That's how it works. At some point every piece of evidence will be a "lie" until only LoP knows truth. Sadly he won't have any control and he'll have to live in a world where everyone is doing things he doesn't agree with.

    Antarctica, a clear Sign of Global Warming

    So is CNN photoshopping? Is CNN forcing scientists to say things you don't agree with? Seems to me that literally everyone who disagrees with YOU is lying. How can that possibly be that almost every earth expert on this topic is so dishonest that they will all lie on cue. Thank heavens we...

    And you thing you do? Do you think anyone else believes you do? You "learned" something somewhere? Wow! Congrats! Did you get a prize?

    Opinion noted. Of course it's incorrect but if you only read every 3rd word I can see how you might fail to see what I've explicitly stated over and over and over again. Gawd....you REALLY need a remedial reading course.

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    Not really. I mean I wouldn't shed a tear if that happened but I'm not actually in favor of all civilian firearms being eliminated. As I've explicitly said over and over again, but you guys can't read so good. Such a scared little hot-house flower! My my! So thin skinned and unable to deal...

    Please don't. My posts weren't ambiguous. Again, don't confuse your lack of facility with language for some ambiguity on my part. God ahmighty! I honestly keep spelling it out explicitly for you. But you appear not be able to read or read only every 3rd word. -sigh- Why bother...

    [W:2270] Does a Gun Make Your Home Safer?

    It's like you are unable to process language. I'm unsure how much more simple I can make it but I'll try again. Let's see if I can make my point using simple words you might understand: Guns are made to be a danger to life. That is their main reason for being. That is why they were...
