  1. Re: Global Warming: 2014 warmest year on record!

    And you know any of this because...you are pulling it out of your ass? Also, a big LOL to referring to PHD carrying scientists as "secular apocalypse preachers".

    This just sounds like an outlandish conspiracy, bud.

    Re: 10 killed in a gun attack in France.

    The fact that they had automatic weapons raises some flags though. How did they get those guns in France by themselves?

    Because those places aren't Paris, France.

    Re: 10 killed in a gun attack in France.

    Having 3, heavily armed gunmen go in is rather brash, I am sure French authorities were surprised by such a blatant attack.
  6. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    I never called for any rights being taken away. I am just amazed that systems like gun registry get shot down (pun intended) in congress and is so openly despised by gun advocates. Outright banning...

    Mmhm, and I am sure you have a nice and neat causality relationship between the guns and the drop, right? Because since my ingrown toenail has sorted itself out, Chicago had a large drop in the...

    Right, why should the speed limit apply to me? I know what speeds I can handle and am never irresponsible!

  9. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    Well obviously there are many factors that go into suicide statistics, ease of methods is just one of those factors. I was never intending for these statistics to sway the legal position of guns, I...
  10. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    I believe it is around 50% of all successful suicide attempts in the US are done with a firearm. It is THE most common method by far in the US.
  11. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    I would actually claim that having a gun (and really any easy form of ending your life) does increase the likelihood of a person trying to commit suicide. Like you said, having a gun doesn't increase...

    I know! I mean, it shocks me that murderers disobey murder laws, must be a stupid law if criminals don't follow it!
  13. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    Yeah, everyone thinks they are the exception to the statistic until they end up being the statistic. I was not trying to compare guns to other dangerous tools (though, in suicide, guns are still the...

    Let's just ignore the fact that 2/3rds of the time you are going to shoot yourself rather than a bad guy. Anecdotal examples are cute and tug at the heartstrings, but lets keep in perspective that...

  16. Re: Why Should Tax Dollars Be Spent on Low Income Families?

  17. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    Are you honestly saying that cars are less regulated than guns, or what? I am missing a point.

    If you are agreeing that guns should be regulated to level that vehicles are, then great, I am on...
  18. Re: Gun Rights Are Favored Over Gun Control For First Time In 20 Years, Poll Finds

    I mean, vehicle registration assists in solving crimes even in the instances when the vehicle has been stolen. Really, this whole argument that "criminals won't follow these laws" is inane to the...
