  • t_duryeaProtesting Stamford gun show. #guncontrol #occupythenra #1mm4gc

  • t_duryea@nworesearcher I didn't, wouldn't even know how to.
  • princesskourtneyy@tinaduryea these people holding signs look like idiots
  • princesskourtneyy@tinaduryea p.s there were more deaths caused by hammers this year than fire arms you should start a petition to ban hammers too
  • t_duryea@kblanchard11 you sound like an idiot...please provide supporting evidence. Also, hammers have a useful function other than death, therefore they have a reason to exist, ditto on cars. Your argument is therefore moot, even if it were true which I highly doubt.
  • t_duryeaOh, and I mean real evidence, not some Right wing hot air:)
  • t_duryeaSorry, I shouldn't have called you an idiot. Breitbart states that hammers kill more people than rifles. Not Firearms. No one is advocating to ban Hunting Rifles. There are gun owners who come to these protests as well. Better background checks, stricter background checks, closing loopholes and banning military assault rifles is what Gun Control means. It does not mean no more hunting. It doesn't even mean getting rid of hand guns or concealed carry. It means getting guns that have the sole purpose of killing masses of people quickly out of the civilian population. And keeping guns in general away from crazy people.
  • princesskourtneyy@tinaduryea I completely respect your opinions but if the common law abiding citizen has to follow laws as such as what you listed above, we will be fighting criminals who will not be subject to those laws and will not abide by them. Plenty of people already have them under the radar and will just continue to get them off the black market. Also look up statistics, I'm almost positive that not one of the massacres were committed by a law abiding gun owner, it was crazy people who stole guns or took them from their family
  • princesskourtneyy@tinaduryea okay let's think of this logically.. What criminal follows laws? None. Therefore criminals will have assault riffles and law abiding citizens will not. You will always be able to get whatever you need from the black market. The only people with assault riffles will be the government and "outlaws" also look up the facts on law abiding gun owners, how many went nuts and shot up a school ect. A majority of the shooters were crazy relatives or criminals that obtained the gun illegally, therefore making more rules for legal gun owners does no good and just gives the government more power over us. First the start with assault riffles then they'll want to take your hand guns ect ect ect . Don't trust the government or the liberal media
  • thekentuckyfly@kblanchard11 stay strong. You know your right. Don't let the brainwashed liberal hipsters try to warp you. They are as clueless as our president
  • princesskourtneyy@muellerracinginc thanks, too many people are brainwashed by the media and the president. Especially those of my generation. "But the news said..." Mind blowing**
  • cinelli89How clueless you all are... Ban ar15s!.... Cause it was in the trunk of a car. The government is trying to feed you fools all this shit so they can strip this right... Then the rest of them because nobody will be there to defend you from a tyrannical government. Your all Brain washed.
  • pure_michigan_hunter@kblanchard11 @muellerracinginc you can't fight these people , they're in a league of their own..
  • t_duryea@fordman1293 out of curiosity...are you opposed to universal back ground checks?
  • pure_michigan_hunter@tinaduryea it seems your against everything. I already know how these debates go so I'd rather not participate. The comment was directed to those people anyways. Have a nice day ma'am.
  • t_duryea@fordman1293 actually, I'm not, neither are most people advocating for gun control.
  • pure_michigan_hunterThey're mostly against what they call "assault rifles" or the AR 15. Ar meaning ArmaLite, or the style of firearm. An actual assault weapon fires full auto. Not semi auto like majority of pistols. If they are banned criminals will simply attain them anyways. Look at drugs. I don't need to see numbers or any random stats, because its common sense. It's ignorant of people to tell me I shouldn't have one for sporting purposes especially since I'm responsible and have a spotless background. Good people shouldn't have to give up rights for others actions. This isn't elementary school, just because someone was bad and did something wrong , we shouldn't all have to pay. I'm not a bad person. I respect other people's opinions. I really do. But I like to see sense used. The tool is not the problem it's the way crazy people somehow attain these firearms. I actually don't mind background checks. I have nothing to hide. I think they should be firmer. I hope I didn't come off as rude. This is my opinion and we all have our own.
  • pure_michigan_hunter@tinaduryea
  • t_duryeaThanks @fordman1293 I think its essential in a Democracy for people with opposing beliefs to actually talk to each other. How else do we find the common ground that we need to live together? So we agree on Background Checks. Me too. Ditto on almost everyone I know (and I have a lot of conservative friends and gun owning friends). So let's go ahead and make that a reality. And then lets work together to figure out how to make our world a safer place.
  • pure_michigan_hunterAbsolutely! I think people should be more open and listen to each other. That way we can have a safer world. Not all pro gun people are bad , alot just really have strong feelings and same with gun control. Or In between people. But yeah it's important to work together. @tinaduryea take care and have a good one
  • pure_michigan_hunterAlso I apologize if I came off as rude yesterday I didn't mean too
