How To Live Under An Unqualified President by John Piper

Of course. The problem is that usually we don’t know which gun owners would commit murder until there are dead bodies on the ground.


#2145

Actually, in the US there is a bit of a war about both gun ownership and guns in and of itself as a needed part of the constitution. Our American way has been to have the population be able to arm themselves, from the founding fathers, they understood the necessity, to allow people to have fire arms. It is a crucial part of our bill of rights.


#2146

So your view is to go around to the law abiding gun owners and say ‘give me your guns’ and the problem will be somehow be fixed…


#2147

Not quite. A buyback at above market value with strict licensing including requiring people to prove they plan to hunt or participate in marksmanship competitions.


#2148

you are a communist.

Stop trolling.

Stop trolling.
Gotcha

Count me as another commie native who just doesn’t get it :slight_smile:


#2152

Hmmm, well, thanks Bob.


#2153

Lol… I must really be a commie-socialist leftist leaning do-gooder bleeding-heart liberal :stuck_out_tongue_winking_eye:

First, here’s the BBC article from today - regarding the US cold weather:

Temperatures fell to -30C (-22F) in Chicago - colder than parts of Antarctica - and -37C in North Dakota.

Freezing weather will chill 250 million Americans, and 90 million will experience -17C (0F) or below.

I still say that when the tribulation and Z-Hell (1, 2, 3, 4, 5) gets here…all the gun owners, will be quite happy…and those without guns, will be regretting the day!


#2155

If so many other people didn’t own guns, would you still feel the need to own one for self defense? Given the choice between living in a society where (A) Guns are easy to obtain for people who plan to murder and me and (B) Guns are hard to obtain for people who plan to murder and me, I’d feel much safer with the latter.


#2156

You are in a dream world. You’re ass is grass if you think that government can do away with firearms in the US. Every low life can get a firearm. And that is a very need to know position that you and all liberals seem to take and NOT UNDERSTAND…

I want the right to carry a firearm. I have it. I embrace it. The fact that you don’t like it is beside the point. I am a citizen, I have rights, you may not like them, but the fact remains, I HAVE THEM._


#2157

The only dream world is the one where more objects created for killing make people safer.


#2158


#2159

That’s so sweet, that you can actually say that and think it is anywhere near the truth. I’m envious of that ability. Sleep safely.


#2160

This is from the BBC news today:

And while we had cold air, from the polar vortex…Australia is suffering a heat wave:

We need Australia, to send their “hot air” our way! :wink:


#2161

Here’s an interesting YouTube Bible video I found

And this is from today’s Pathoes Evangelical newsletter:

So you’re thinking is that we are all safer if everyone carries a gun or other weapon? I thought only Archie Bunker held that opinion. In the program “All in the Family,” Archie stated on TV that everyone that travelled by plane would be safer, if each of them was given a firearm before entering the plane.


#2163

I do think that, yes. As for Archie, I know that that is you taking a ‘shot’ at me, but if it makes you happy, that’s good!
