    Vapid, Jarrid, Most of us can hold more than one thought in our head at once. We can be appropriately saddened (devastated if that makes you feel better) by the evil and violence demonstrated in Oregon, while also being fully aware that we are about to face, yet again, the mindless screeching of those bent on taking away our right to bear arms to defend ourselves.

    I don’t love plastic and metal more than I love people. I don’t know anyone who does. What a stupid accusation. I and others do love our right to defend ourselves and our families, though, Something wrong with that?

    So you enjoy shooting and you own guns, huh? Have you turned them all in now? If not, what is your point in writing this article? To make yourself feel that you are better than everyone else?

    “One of only 16 Mormons in a 435-member Congress, he represents less than 4 percent of the House membership”

    So “representation” is based solely on religious affiliation? And 4% is too low to qualify? By Jennifer’s metrics, I guess Boehner’s “representation” was preferable.

    Trying to get my head around the possibility of a Trump/Sanders contest.

    I like Cuban and its nice to see him putting himself out there a little, as Trump himself is–even if he seems unsure if he will vote for anyone yet.

    Ignorance and evil have always enabled one another.

    Not in any dictionary I’ve seen. Inability to grasp the difference accounts for a lot of misery in the world.

    Altruism and individualism are not contradictory. Compelled, coerced, collective altruism is not altruism at all. Only individually, freely chosen, freely given altruism is real. Anything else is counterfeit.

    I’m not suggesting that anyone limit the right–just saying you don’t always have to do something just because you can. I’ll defend their right to open carry an AR into Dairy Queen at the same time I maintain it may not be the smartest thing to do.

    I understand and agree that their “in your face” tactics are obnoxious. I don’t think I suggested running away with our tails between our legs. I’ll stand shoulder to shoulder with you in defending against their push to take away our rights. I’ll even defend your right to open carry all you want. I just won’t agree that it is a good idea in all circumstances or that doing so will achieve the normalization you seek.

  • [3] June 2, 2014 at 3:44pm

    Agree completely. I just don’t believe that slinging an AR on before going for a burger and shake wins a lot of folks to our way of thinking.

  • [-1] June 2, 2014 at 3:38pm

    Agree. Going to extremes in exercising rights does not always make a strong statement in favor of the person exercising them. Fore example, the Utah Supreme Court recently ruled that a man was within his rights to flash young girls while wearing a diaper. While he might have been within his rights, my respect for him isn’t positively impacted. His own attorney said “Mr. Bagnes’ conduct is certainly unusual, strange, creepy, weird.” Amen. I don’t judge open carriers the same way, and I believe their hearts are in the right place, but there is room for a little discretion.

    I get your point. I don’t like the idea of requiring a permit to exercise a right either. My point goes more to the open/concealed choice. I am bothered by liberal/progressives, whose lack of judgment is often only exceed by their demand for recognition and attention. I don’t want to be like that.

    I have to agree with the NRA on this one. What is the purpose? CC works just fine.

    My thought too. That is more unnerving than the hold-up

    Does that guy Look like Beavis or Butthead? I can’t remember which is which . . .

    Posing and sanctimony. No one believes he is feeling any financial pinch in his personal life. How about no more multimillion $$ vacations this year?
