At the invitation of a poster whom I respect, I'm starting this thread as an off-shoot from another (Things I Disagree with Tea Party / Liberals...). "When you are done with this topic, we can discuss this one in more detail. * I own a gun. If anyone breaks into my home and holds perfectly still while I move to within three feet of them, they're dead meat. Or their leg will hurt. Maybe a toe. In any case, you guys are all over the danm place on this issue. Some of you have told me I should be able to own a machine gun or even an RPG. Others have told me I should be able to take these fine weapons anywhere I want. I disagree with those of you who have that view. On the other side, Libs if I have a gun in my home, I am not a "NeoCon" or "Out to prove my manhood". Good post otherwise." So apparently my new found friend thinks this part of my post was bad. I'm betting it's not because he thinks all guns should be banned... What's funny is, in the same thread, for the paragraph above, I was called a Conservative who puts human life before property and a Liberal who wants to take away our protection from that tyrannical government that we all know is going to invade ou homes any day now. So there it is. If you don't think we need gun ownership at all and can state your reasons why, guess what? I can respect those views. I'm not going to call you names or sling petty insults like some arrogant moron who thinks I know all. If you think we should have more gun rights and can state your reasons why, guess what? Same thing. Intelligent people can appreciate differing views.
