This is a discussion on I tried, tell me what you think (long) within the Concealed Carry Issues & Discussions forums, part of the Defensive Carry Discussions category; Originally Posted by raysheen makes me wonder what other peoples views of acceptable gun control are on a board like this...I mean for the most ...
I've been sickened to witness, on boards like this one (although not yet this one) a few denizens who clearly support their OWN right to carry a gun for defense (one even told of how he had drawn it and pointed at a large man in a parking lot when he felt threatened) but then seem to condescend to just about anyone else who owns or carries guns. I have read opinions about how it seems to them that so many people just don't have what it takes that they should be allowed to carry. Real elitist stuff. But for the fact that they own guns themselves, they might as well be written off as antis.
So I don't feel that you can really conclude that someone who CCWs must be just generally in favor of CCW.
Don't waste another minute on them, spend your time at other threads in places like this, in gun shops or on the range.
Regarding the responses you received; to hear one person speak like that is frustrating, to know there is a whole group of them is depressing.
We can sit here and recite the logic that we all know is true and correct, it only serves to frustrate even further. I'll not stop back at this thread, not because I don't agree with anyone here, for I agree with you all; it's just that it's a waste of time to commisserate about those who will not listen.
Again, don't waste time on these people any more than you would on Sarah Brady. It won't change anything--you tried, so give yourself credit for that, now let it be and enjoy yourself.

LOL, is that a bazooka in your pocket, or are you just happy to see me?
To me, the anti's are worse than sheep. Sheep are ignorant (they don't know the realities of what dangers there are). Anti's are stupid. Stupid and dangerous. They are either 1) buying into the crap that the media spoonfeeds them, or 2) they are the "elite", all-knowing liberals, who think they know what's best for everyone (this enables them to hold onto their "elite" status).
Sounds cold, but the anti's should just keep up their beliefs. If they believe what they are saying, then they won't own or carry a firearm. When something comes to them in the form of a real threat, then maybe that will reduce the liberal population. Cold? Maybe... Do I feel bad about being cold? Not one bit. These people are as much a threat to mine and my family's safety, and the safety of law abiding gun owners and CCW'ers as some armed dirtbag on teh street.
When you are truly transformed into a warrior and have truly invested yourself into warriorhood, you want to be there. You want to be able to make a difference.

Along the lines of "criminals will always find a way": There was a piece on the local news last night about how some group in England is opposed to the use of traffic cameras to catch speeders. They're not shooting the cameras (no guns), instead they're blowing them up.
That's different - back a ways they just cut the buggers off with large disc cutters Now it's ''Boom'' huh - oh my!!some group in England is opposed to the use of traffic cameras to catch speeders. They're not shooting the cameras (no guns), instead they're blowing them up

In my youth, I may or may not, have been a regular at the game "Binking". For those who do not know, "Binking" is a game played with a full size 4x4 with a cow catcher front bumper. "Bink" is the sound a stop sign or speed limit sign, makes when you run over it at 40 mph. The things people do when they live in EBF.
These aren't just fence sitters who watch and believe misinformation they see on TV, these are the people who contrive and cultivate the conspiracy of deceit.
That is NOT some group of sappy duck hunters, that is a front.
Your effort would be better spent going to DU of Kos and arguing with those lunatics.
