"The right to buy weapons is the right to be free." -A.E. van Vogt
One would think that a liberal who wants to write about how conservatives think would, you know, go to a conservative Web site or blog and, like, read it. Or just make up condescending babble, which is more the way official journalists seem to roll.Wow, the CAPTCHA is heseasy (he's easy).
"...if the bad guys have a machine gun, you need a bazooka."OK. I'm good with that.After I bazooka the bad guys, can I keep the machine gun too?
From the comments: "t's time for the American Psychological Association to classify conservatism as a mental illness so that no conservative would be allowed to be armed."Sure, let's go ahead and start the war now.
Divemedic,I have a hard time believing anybody could be so un-self-aware as to make a comment like that, but then I read the comments on "my side" and am reminded that yes, yes they can.
"It's not ______ when WE do it!"
That MAC-11 found at JFK was so frightening it caused the writer to misspell frightening two different ways in the article.The first mistake in the caption to the photo "It was a freighting find" could almost be considered a play on words, considering it was found in the baggage area. But, on the very first line of the article this theory is disproved as the writer then misspells it as "It was a frighting find at JFK airport’s Terminal 1 Thursday."Thank goodness for legions of fact-checkers and editors, but they were probably too frightened by the article's content to check for spelling.
It... wasn't the worst exemplar of "How Conservatives Think About Gun Control" I've ever seen. At least he wasn't actually demeaning about it, and acknowledged that we and he actually think about the subject differently without us necessarily being malign about it.
Which isn't the same thing as saying he was correct, just, y'know, not a profanity spewing ad hominem engine about it.
Am I the only one wondering what the hell the contractor was doing digging through somebody's private possessions? To me a dust covered box in closet of office at job site does not = open me. Unless maybe if I was looking to steal something.
I'm going to make a guess that the mac-11 was stolen from someone's luggage, tucked away to be smuggled out later, and...someone either went to jail, or got fired, and was unable to retrieve their loot.
The comments there are ... depressing, I guess.The obligatory "Zimmerman case means we need to repeal Wicked Other ALEC Stand Your Ground Laws" guy also goes on about how "Trained police are good, civilians are bad".I wanted to point out that Zimmerman didn't use the SYG law at all in his defense, and that NYPD and Bakersfield PD "trained police experts" have a far worse violence and racism record than lawful carriers, but it wouldn't help.
Also, on the MAC-11 thing, I noticed "Thursday night, Port Authority police are trying to see if it functions. They are doing ballistics testing to see if it was used for anything illegal."Bet you a dollar it's a semi-auto clone, if it's even a real firearm.
They have a companion (hit) piece:http://www.thenation.com/blog/176392/vast-unregulated-online-gun-market#

But man, the people int he comment thread on that article are just depressingly ignorant. And not just about firearms!I quit.
