And.....I too own a handgun. I live in a rural place, so it's for protection.....not against tyranny.

Ohhhh and get a better understanding of your precious second ammendment

I'm not sure whether or not this is a death rattle but it's nice to see Chaff hanging in there.

I don't know dude, it seems like chaff has run out of ammunition. People just going off half-cocked. Seems pretty shot to me....

"Tyrannical Government.....Lord. ....you're one of those. Yep the big bad Obama army is coming to get ya"

You must not be a student of history. I'm sure many Germans thought the same way you did in the 1930's.

I am afraid of unleashed dogs on the trail but not leashed ones.

I think my view of guns is similar. Seeing a person with a hand gun in a holster doesn't bother me. If the person was holding the gun in their hand (unleashed) then it would worry me.

When the owner of an unleashed dog tells me it won't bite me it is no more reassuring than the person with the gun in his/her hand telling me he won't shoot me.

How to identify nut jobs from a distance is the skill that more should learn. I see one from way over here.

We're only on page two folks. Waaaaay off the pace. We're not ever going to turn this into a 3000 response strong display of internet hara-kari unless everyone is willing to do their part and pitch in.

I blame cable news for this.

The 2nd amendment is so important to me, I've been known to wear a T-shirt without a jacket IN THE WINTER just to exercise my right. Not sure what all the hullaballoo is about here.

Guns, Hitler, Obama, Socialists...yeah chaff!! on 06/28/2013 21:22:04 MDT Print View

I can see a nutter too.

As an ACTUAL socialist, I am always amazed at the ignorance on display when people throw the word around, or compare Obama to Hitler, or whatever Fox News has in it's bonnet that day. 6 years on, I am STILL waiting for a single piece of evidence that Obama is a socialist...........

Jennifer,
I never said Socialist...I said TYRANT. You know , as in TYRANNY?

ty·rant
/ˈtīrənt/
Noun

A cruel and oppressive ruler.
A person exercising power or control in a cruel, unreasonable, or arbitrary way.

Synonyms
despot - oppressor

I'd say he fits the definition perfectly, as did his predecessor, Bush. It makes little difference, Left boot or Right boot, it's still a boot on your neck!

I just try to concentrate on the person and ignore the gun. Here is a perfect example on which to practice.

That wasn't so hard, was it?

I suppose one could also try Craig's method of establishing dominance, but I doubt it would have the desired outcome when there's more than one armed hiker. Maybe he can elaborate on technique. Over to you, Craig. :D

Yeah mark, those boots might be heavy, but their total skin out weigh is so low it allows them the flexibility to go with the sturdier boots.

I must call foul (fowl?) on those gals. Every small fowl hunter I know wrap their doves/quail/pigeon/whatever in bacon (which kind of defeats the purpose I guess).

So each model would need to gain about 75 lbs and have a Marlboro light cigarette in the other hand to truly represent my observations on my hunting friends and family ( ... and hoping this doesn't pop up on google search under my name)

"Present evidence on your paranoid, delusional rants that the Obama Admin. are tyrannical"

I find his assertion neither paranoid nor delusional. After all, this administration has charged more would-be whistleblowers with violating state secrecy laws than all previous administrations combined. That seems a bit tyrannical, especially coming from an administration that promised to be the most transparent ever. And that doesn't even get to the warrantless spying and the killing of Americans without due process.

"ps.....I am glad to be a liberal...beats the hell out of being some uptight, homophobic, racist, conservative any day of the week"

I know uptight, homophobic, racist (self proclaimed) liberals as well -- hatred isn't owned by one political philosophy.
