    I took liberty of directing this guy to THR after the local trolls showed up from Hog Waller Holler. He's had about 10 offers to go shooting and was nice enough to comment about how rude people were on "other" gun forums.

    Y'all are some top notch ambassadors for the second amendment

    I'm sure he'll reward them with an objective article.

    Hilarious. So we're supposed to be "ambassadors" for the Second Amendment to a writer who will be addressing people in a country that doesn't have, and never will have, anything approaching its supposed limitations on government?

    Giving the guy a chance to clarify his intentions is considered "trolling" by you. You have given us no chance of clarification at all, so what pray tell, might be an accurate portrayal of your post here? Double-Trolling?

    And THR. LOL

    No one has ever heard me say that I "hate" cops, because I don't. This is why I will never trust one again though: You just never know...

    I just considered the source. In both cases. The idea that this person was going to do anything but a hit job is fantasy and why do I need to be an Ambassador in the first place? I actually talked with him instead of ignoring his completely transparent effort. Am I a 1A ambassador for just engaging with him? He can keep patting himself on the back if it makes him feel good. He's quite a humanitarian you know.

    Well, I have little in the way of knowledge to go on concerning the German writer, but I do know Eidolon's predilection for being beyond cantankerous at the very least, and being a troll at worst. His very first interaction with the board was revealing of his propensities towards fomenting conflict, as was one of your earliest interactions too, but you got over whatever burr was under your saddle. Eidolon, not so much. You'd probably have to read the link in the OP of that thread in order to fully understand how and why the discussion went as it did, but otherwise, the thread is basically just unnecessary argument for argument's sake. I include myself in that evaluation, but Eidolon most certainly contributed at least equally to that thought.

    I was pretty sure you'd be along to say your piece about Hog Waller Holler and my suspicions of the journalist were for two very baseline reasons. I lived in Europe for a couple of years, have traveled there extensively, and know well their extreme prejudice against firearms. I knew of Stern and a quick 4 minute search led to their cover photo last year of a US President draped in the American flag performing a Sig Heil (which is outlawed in Germany).

    One would think that a population that had their firearms confiscated by Hitler who then had free reign to carry out his crimes against humanity would be more tolerant. Or that they'd be reluctant to be so bold as to compare our leader(s) with that of the monster that ruled them. I could digress into current German politics but suffice it say that I was immediately wary of a German journalist doing a "neutral" firearms story, in Vegas of all places, and for a dubious publication.

    I'm glad he got the help he needed from the person that felt comfortable providing it considering our crappy efforts at being firearms "ambassadors". I meet more liberals at the gun range in the past year than in my whole life and I help them in any and every way I can as a citizen and club member and they are embracing their rights and I couldn't be happier that they've discovered a right that was always theirs anyway. Good on em'.
