So enlighten us, Professor. (And I use the word loosely.)
Have the vast majority of countries, where governments control the guns, proven their ability to keep law abiding citizens safe?
Seeing as how over 80% of them are dictatorships that is.
And those that are not, seem to be under assault.

Just put whatever garlic you need in the microwave a few seconds.

About 25 years ago during a Canadian provincial election, the matter of tax dollar funded abortions became such a contentious issue that it was put on a plebiscite, to be voted for during the upcoming election.
The PC Party had done an abysmal job, and most everybody was certain they were on the way out, and and it looked like the NDP party, our socialist/greenie party, (Which had kept that western province in an economic backwater quagmire for the preceding 4 decades) was going to get back in
Here’s how the voting/plebiscite results went.
The NDP regained power with a little over 60% of the vote.
And 83% of ALL voters said “No” to tax funded abortions.
But the NDP said, “this was a PC party plebiscite, we’re not going to abide by the results.”
In my early twenties then, that was when it really hit, that political parties don’t represent people, but agendas.
And these same pukes just took over Alberta, which USED to be the Texas of Canada.

I think you’ll find far more idiot “Christians” have come up with these technological advances, than have people with beliefs like Dawkins.
Do a little research.
And if democrats and liberals are so smart, why can’t so many seem to grasp basic economics.
And principles like, “Keep your hands out of my pockets cause I don’t want to pay for your lifestyle and/or its mistakes that you were warned about fifty gazillion times.”

Looks like these “Lone Wolves” are breeding like rats.

Man, the Left just can’t argue.
A more accurate analogy of Pam Geller’s actions would she’s doing something about rabid dogs while others believe as long as we are nice to the healthy dogs there is nothing to worry about.
Radical Islam seems to be just like rabies. It’s an insanely contagious.(Pardon the pun) and there is only ONE cure for a rabid animal.
In the old days, when there were no tests or vaccines for rabies, if there was an outbreak, to be safe, every single animal in the region was rounded up an put down, and that’s something all of us have to worry about in the case of Islamists, because when scared people mob up they become complete idiots.
Just look at the mobs in Ferguson and Baltimore.
How many of the store owners were guilty?
It was innocent people who paid the price.
I once read, if you want to calculate the intellectual capacity of a mob, take the I.Q. of the dumbest person amongst, and then divide that by the number of people in the mob.
And that’s the kind of reasoning power we’ll to have if radical Islamists gain foothold here.
Why didn’t any “Moderate Muslim” groups say, “Please. Drawing Mohammed offends us, so we’re asking you not to do it. We will find our criminals, and accept punishment according to your laws. Even if they are family”
Instead, all we’ve heard is “Draw Mohammed and we’ll kill you.”
Or how about after? If a “Moderate Muslim” group had stepped up and said, “You’ve offended us greatly, but we will still pray for you.” it would have been something.
Maybe some have somewhere, but I haven’t seen any.
Either “Moderate Muslims” can’t control their radicals, or they won’t.
The Boston Marathon had nothing to do with insulting Islam yet it was targeted.
And the bomber’s mother cussed us out.
Only when Muslims accept that they must abide by clear lines, will others do the same.
We’ve been told we are at war, and the problem with war is that it means peaceful solutions have been exhausted.
We all like to think there are rules in war, but in reality there aren’t. It’s an ugly, rotten, miserable fight for survival, just like when someone is down on the ground getting the snot stomped out of them.
There are no rules, ,

Some say it doesn’t make sense, that it’s not the right approach to “Poke radical Muslims in the eye” like this, by drawing Mohammad when you know it will invoke such a response.
But it also doesn’t make sense to poke a rabid dog in the eye when it’s chewing on some kid either.
If nothing else…
It might at least distract such animals from more helpless victims.
And I ain’t talking about a dog.

Whatever the dream, man.
Of all the guys I met who did get fed up enough to walk, as long as they hadn’t abandoned family, there wasn’t one who regretted the decision.
Funny thing is, we all were out there for the same basic reason. We couldn’t stand the backstabbing, lying and cheating.
And by far, more people I met sailing, even though I knew some for only a short time, are people I’d trust to have my back in a wreck, because if you survived several years of sailing you’ve been through a wreck or two and had to deal with it yourself.
One of our toasts was, “To the working world. May they never find out about this and screw it up for the rest of us.”

Read a study about 20 years ago. The question: What creature causes the most monetary damage? Not outright destruction, but by actions somehow costs society money.
Answer: The single human male.
With no family to worry about, a single guy, if he’s had enough of a situation, or a boss, will just walk away, even leave the country, and leave everybody else scrambling to pick up the pieces.
I’m the chief engineer on the dam project? Tough. I’m outta here!
I’m unplugging your toilet and you give me too much flack about stink or mess? Tough. I’m outta here.
I’m C.E.O. of a multimillion dollar company and the board of directors keep whining. Well then I’m buying a sailboat and following sunsets.
The thing is, other than some food, some beer and a bunk, guys don’t care. A rat infested hotel with cobras chasing them is just a great beer story.
I never really thought it true, until I did it. As a partner in the family biz, with no family of my own, one day I finally said eff it, flew to the other side of the planet and spent several years returning in a slow sailboat.
The first thing I noticed when I got back was so many guys with that 1000 yard stare.
All said, “You lucky ba****! If I didn’t have family…”
Then they kind of drift off into la-la land.
By the way. I think the reason married guys live longer is cause they have a wife to insist, “Go to the doctor!”
For me it's a rifle, horses, pick, shovel and gold pan.
Whatever the dream, man.
