The logic of the right explained:

When you can't argue facts, make up positions to argue against. Make them massively oversimplified, so you are not overwhelmed.

Here's the problem with your logic... other than what has already been posted. When Muslims kill people, what do they typically use? Guns. See #1 on your list.

Who are the liberals saying that? Please name some names when your tantrum subsides.

I think you're a little incorrect.

When bad people use guns to kill people, we must ban guns.

When diabetes kills people, we need to tax sodas and provide free diabetes insurance.

When people choose to smoke and die, we must tax cigarettes and provide free smoking insurance.

When Muslims kill people it's a misunderstood religion and we must bring them here where they will embrace our non violent way of life.

Incorrect. They use whatever gets the job done. Bombs, aircraft, beheading knives. stones, fire. Sometimes guns.

Notice what I said: typically. But there are more problems with the OP than just what I pointed out.

Very few people want to ban guns.

When diabetes kills people, we need to tax sodas and provide free diabetes insurance.

Very few people want the government to provide free diabetes insurance.

When people choose to smoke and die, we must tax cigarettes and provide free smoking insurance.

Ditto.

When Muslims kill people it's a misunderstood religion and we must bring them here where they will embrace our non violent way of life.

no one says that.

So thank you for proving my point. Dishonesty as a debate tactic is doomed to fail.

When corporations steal people's money, when oil companies poison the air, when shoddy electronics get people killed in cars, the Republicans say "we need less regulation".

When abortion clinics are doing their job by helping to prevent unwanted pregnancies, thereby saving money public assistance money, Republicans say "we need more regulation".

When the US government intentionally topples the leadership of foreign countries, Republicans say "we need more war".

What's you're point?

So you're admitting that guns kill people, then?

Liberals haven't argued for banning guns, soda, and cigarettes, due to the adverse effects associated with them?

Liberals haven't been the biggest supporters of Muslim migration to the US since 9/11?

Can you name which planet you're currently living on, or rock you're living under?

Right, to a liberal's mind, guns are at fault when a Muslim uses them to kill people. There's no thought given to the fact that a gun is an inanimate object.

Liberals also give no thought to the fact that guns have always been available in the US, yet mass killing sprees and terrorist attacks were never a major issue until fairly recently. What change happened in the country that lead to spree killings and terror attacks occurring much more frequently?

This is such incredibly simplistic thinking that I have no idea how to respond. YOU don't get to tell how liberals think. YOU have no clue and are like many other rightwingers who just project their own anger and fear on "the other side".

If you actually want an answer to any of your questions, stop using the word "liberals". Not ALL liberals fall under your foolish stereotype. Tell me, are all conservatives hate-mongering, bigoted, evangelical fascists?

Liberals have been saying for years that the US needs to eliminate private gun ownership. Every time there's a tragedy where guns were used, such as the Orlando Terror Attack, we get to hear the same people say the same thing; it's time to ban guns.

Of course there are exceptions to every rule, and if you consider yourself liberal and still believe in the 2nd Amendment, congratulations to you Captain, I'm really glad that you feel that way. I'm also aware that there are Democrats, liberals, socialists, anarchists, communists, etc., who either own guns or believe that private ownership of guns should exist on some level. Hooray. If I started a thread entitled, "Bulletin: Some Liberals Think Guns are OK", would you give a crap?

I'd consider it HONEST and might have congratulated you for not acting like a right wing hack. If you wrote your title and made the presentation you made to garner attention, are you happy with the attention you received?

Where are you hearing that? What I here most of the time is liberals advocating for gun control/regulation, which is entirely different from wanting to ban all guns outright.

But even the liberals that do advocate for banning guns (the small amount that do), doesn't change the fact that most liberals don't want to ban all guns.

The point of the thread wasn't to start another gun control debate.
This is the Partisan Politics Platform, we get to call 'em as we see 'em here. We don't have to curtsy and doe-se-doe around what we think.

Eh, there's a very conservative group that is always going on what's being shown on tv, american family council something or the other. Does that mean people on the right don't believe in the 1A?

After all by your "logic" if someone who represents one side opposes something, they all do.

I hear what you're saying.
But most liberals have been in love with the perceived "progress" that Europe has made over the past 50 years. They are always looking to force what works in Europe on us. I've been following the news since I was 14, I've seen this play out in many areas Gov.

Guns have been all but banned in the U.K. for many years. Heck, even many police officers in the U.K. aren't allowed to carry guns. They look like mall cops here in the states, with a radio and a whistle at the ready in case Isis is allergic to whistles, but no gun.

We aren't the U.K. What works for them is really super duper, but America is a whole different ball game.
