    So why are the libs so quick to demonize the firearm/magazine? Because of what they believe about humans in general.

    Most libs believe that all humans are inherently good. That's the exact opposite of what most of us here believe. So when you believe that all people are inherently good, you have to find another explanation for the bad that occurs in the world in order to keep your beliefs in-tact.

    Enter the gun.

    The gun gives them the opportunity to shift the blame away from people. The gun is the cause of all evil. If there were no guns, there would be no one doing evil things with them. Therefore, the logical conclusion, to them, is to eliminate the guns.

    Of course, we know better.

    The very first murder was accomplished with a rock (Genesis, Cain and Able). Seen anyone lately advocating to outlaw gravel pits and landscaping companies? I didn't think so.
    Sorry but back to the drawing board for you.
    If they thought that we are all inherently good then why do they constantly push for more laws and control where they decide what is good for us.
    Bill Clinton once said about getting lower taxes and a larger refund that the average person probably wouldn't know how to spend the money.
    Do not exclude the fact that many on the left want guns out of our hands so they can better control us idiots that don't know how to care for the environment, how to spend our own money and are evil.
    Understand that when it comes to guns they just don't trust themselves with a gun. How do you expect them to trust you when they don't trust themselves with a gun. Basic transference.
    In talking with libs or being in social situations, so many times does somethings come up, and not always about guns, do I hear them say something about shooting someone or that my or others reactions would be to shoot someone.
    Humorous example without going into too much detail. Topic: A kid mentions something to a friend of theirs about my wife having an "accident". In my discussion with this liberal friend I said that if that were true you know what I would do?
    She said "shoot them?" I admonished her and told her that only liberals react is such violent ways including using the words shoot, kill etc. I asked if she ever heard me say anything like that. Of course her answer was no. I asked how can that be because we all know how violent, evil racist conservative individuals are.
    She finally asked what I would do, what was I going to say? So I told her I would ask my wife if her life insurance was paid.
    Really, next time you are talking with someone and just automatically they say something about shooting someone notice if they are anti gun. 99.9% of the time they are.

    Thumbs up They blame the guns to get the guns, it's only logical.

    You guys have my head SPINNING so much I can't seem to see my guns laughing at you all.
    Just to make this real for you all out there.
    They blame the guns because it's the guns they want to abolish.
    Guns can't speak to say they are innocent of the crime so it must be guilty, of course.
    Guns can't vote , so they have no redress to keep from being abolished.
    Guns can't even write their legislator asking for help with their attacks for the liberal gun grabbers.
    Speaking of which gun grabbers should all be indicted for sexual harrassment, those liberals just don't care where they grab it.
    I'd rather be a Conservative Nutjob. Than a Liberal with NO Nuts & NO Job

    Why they blame the gun....

    It happens with almost everything. Read the newspaper: "So-and-so was killed when the car he was driving left the road and struck a tree." As if it is the car's fault.

    When It should read, "...when he drove his car off the road and struck a tree."

    No one wants to take or give blame to people for their actions. Do you Notice every murderer supposedly had a difficult or abused childhood? Always... Blame someone or something else.

  5. A small point:the "Kumbaya" I recall from my youth had many religious references. This WOULD NOT fly with the Libtards. So you could have the group hug, but they would have to improvise a non-religious, feel-good, Libtard celebrating song, with some Conservative bashing lyrics somewhere in it, if at all possible. Nothing springs to mind. Any suggestions??

  6. The premise of liberal logic that government should control the ideas, behavior, and conditions we live under because the average citizen is not capable of taking care of himself or making decisions that are best for the social order, they deem appropriate. To sum up the liberal logic explanation; the average citizen is both helpless, and dumb. Any explanation the liberal ruling class proposes should be accepted without question or debate. They should decide where we live, what we eat, what we own, where we go, and what we think. Anything that goes wrong can be blamed on someone or something that failed to submit to their ideals.

    A fundamental premise of the (so-called) liberal progressive position is that the human condition is perfectible. If enough control can be exerted to eliminate “bad” ideas and “bad” things, a “perfect” society is attainable (no crime, no want, no injustice, no inequalities, etc.). Therefore you have the statist position where no power should be withheld from the state in order to achieve these things. This is in contradiction to the position that the human condition is inherently flawed, and cannot be made perfect by the actions of other inherently flawed human beings. I personally have not found a single instance in all of recorded human history that refutes this latter position. Our Founding Fathers fully recognized the true nature of the human condition, which is why they constructed a constitutional republic, with a government of limited authority, with many checks and balances, in order to provide for liberty and prevent tyranny amongst inherently flawed human beings.

    The libs demonize the firearm in an effort to get them outlawed for civilian ownership. That is the only way that they can control us.

    They blame the gun because they need an object to vilify rather than try to address the deep social and mental issues involved. Banning guns is good press. Approving long term studies is not. Right now gun control is a hot topic by those who do not need a gun and fear them. We are in a period where we ban things to save 10,000 lives a year. Soon we will ban things to save 1,000 lives a year. After that, life will be so precious that we will ban everything that may cause harm.
    The worst part of growing old is that other men no longer think you dangerous.

    How about banning a class of rifles and punishing all law abiding gun owners because if it saved one life!

    The glaring flaw in the libs thinking however is that libs are not generally good..... Let me give a few examples:
    - Fast and Furious
    - Benghazi
    - AP spying
    - Clinton (either one)
    - IRS scandal
    - Al Gore
    - Obama
    - Pelosi
    - Feinstein
    - Just about every lib on the Supreme Court
