    The immediate knee-jerk reaction of rabid Second Amendment proponents is to defend any action by a fellow gun owner, no matter how egregious or ill-considered.
    Look at how the Zimmerman case instantly became a rallying point for gun-rights advocates.

    If that's your logic it's a frank confession. He didn't say the guns make people afraid, but rather the people behind them.

    But either way by your eternal logic of "everybody but me is a stupid idiot", those little kids in Newtown and those Amish girls in Pennsylvania and those movie patrons in Aurora, they must be real morons. And the survivors who watched it all go down, they must be even stupider.

    Am I supposed to assume that you are actually being sensible?

    Do you think cops shouldn't be able to carry guns in schools?

    If cops can do carry a gun in both places, I see no reason everyone else cannot. If, on the other hand, you want separate laws for police and everyone else, I have to point out that violates the premise of the US being a nation of laws.

    I still haven't seen any evidence that they intended to intimidate anyone.

    Funny thing is, neither did the police who were called to the scene. If they had, those people would have gone to jail, because it is illegal to carry a gun in a way that is meant to intimidate others. Since these men were not arrested I can be 100% sure that they did not display their weapons in a manner meant to intimidate.

    Want to try and make a case that the police ignored the law?

    You already said they didn't break a law. Since they didn't break the law, and intimidating people with a gun is illegal in Texas, they didn't intimidate anyone.

    That means you think guns are scary, and are willing to lie to make political points.

    Uh ---- no. I wasn't there, ergo there's no element for me to be scared of. Secondly, I did not say they didn't break "a" law. As for lying to make political points, I wouldn't dream of taking your job. (Like you just did -- I can't compete with that.)

    Fourth, as for "they didn't intimidate anyone", see the intervening post between yours and this one for yet another admission that that's exactly what they did. See also the police in the video specifically moving the OCT away.

    Failure on all fpur points. 0 for 4 with four strikeouts. I believe that's called the "golden sombrero".

    Absolutely, they do. Either they support whatever any gun nut does, or they say, as in the deaths of all those children in Newtown, that it is just collateral damage: no big deal, the numbers just aren't big enough to make it important enough to consider serious gun control. I wonder what any of them would think if it was their child killed in a school rampage. No, we don't need to wonder. They'd want more guns. They'd want teachers to be armed. Their solution for the gun problem is more guns. Pour more gasoline on the fire.

    People that weren't there were scared, but you weren't, so that proves they were there to intimidate people, even though that would break the law, and they didn't break the law.

    Does that accurately reflect your position?

    Who said this? Please quote and link. Because I haven't heard anybody say that unprotected kids being slaughtered in schools is acceptable collateral damage...

    Other than the gun grabbers, that is.
