Well I first clicked on this thread because of the title. R8ers was being provocative but he is bringing up a valid issue. There are groups of citizens that make use of our rights under the 2nd amendment to guarantee their own safety. Women are an obvious group for one. They've historically had a less powerful position in our society, and still get overtly preyed upon. Once someone can digest that fact my hope is that they can begin to understand why other groups of people would want that same security. And the bottom line is that this is indeed a civil liberties issue. So, if someone on this board fancies themselves as a champion of civil liberty then they have no business trying to disempower our citizenry. It's not a "conservative" vs. "liberal" or Democrat vs. Republican issue to me. It's about whether you want to be part of society that values liberty and personal empowerment or not. It's about respecting the individual.
I have continued to interact with Difleckshun in this thread because he knows he's stuck. He can't argue with my point. So of course he tried attacking me as a poster. Unfortunately for him, because he's a moron, he can't even pull that off. Perhaps it's a cruel streak of mine, but I do enjoy watching him twist in the wind and making a jackass of himself.
