You write sentences that undermine your position.

This affirms my position that CROOKS will always find a way to get a gun. That's WHY we have the Bill of Rights!!!!!! Had this not been a gun free zone perhaps someone could have fired back, like in Texas, and killed these two before the slaughter.

Sounds more like a case for Dr. Phil than the PC police.
Sorry, Lobo, that dog don't hunt at all. A weak example IMO.



A weak example of reading comprehension on your part, I'd say. Who on earth said anything about intimidation?! What it was an example of is political correctness.

Then what is this awesome power of political correctness supposed to be in your example, and why is it bad?


People are conditioned to elevate non-offensiveness to the highest priority. It's bad, because in many situations, truth, for instance, is a higher value.

I guess we should rail against Emily Post as well: there once was a woman who said nothing about her house on fire because she didn't want to appear impolite.

Right!

Or just the woman who didn't voice her suspicions about the people making the pipe bombs.

Not sure if Magnus is reading this one, but this is another example of some of the more pernicious effects if political correctness.


Which one?

The ceremony of innocence is drowned;
The best lack all conviction, while the worst
Are full of passionate intensity.--Yeats

I'm still trying to parse it, Lobo:

A climate of anti-Muslim hatred has nothing to with random Muslims getting hurt ,

but asking people not to be rude is a problem?

Perhaps there might be an element of personal responsibility in all of these cases?

I wish they would have had the opportunity to fight back. With your attitude the victims never will. It's sad to see. In Texas an armed citizen with a hand gun killed two terrorists with rifles before they murdered anyone ... To bad this didn't happen here. I know it's important to you to win an argument ... I, however don't care what is important to you at this moment. Innocent people have been slaughtered. I wish they had been armed.

With "my attitude"?

What, exactly is "my attitude"?

How can you even know what "my attitude" is?

Firstly, there's no particular reason to conflate two different issues. I didn't say anything about Muslims getting hurt.secondly, political correctness goes well above and beyond "asking people not to be rude."

Okay, let me ask it this way: where is it in the PC Constitution that it asks people to not mention it if they see their neighbors transporting pipe bombs?

The F.B.I. is treating the Wednesday shooting as a potential terrorist act, though the agency is far from concluding that it was, two law enforcement officials said.
If there is a single truth about Magic, it is that nothing on earth so efficiently evades it.

Why on earth would you want to deprive people on a terror watch list from their God-given and Constitutionally protected right to buy firearms? Those freedom-hating librols are at it again.

I wonder who's preventing them from concluding that it was a terrorist act when everyone else now knows it was? Wait...I think I know.

Um, yeah. AR-15's cost like $500 when legally purchased (as opposed to something like $30,000 on the black market,) and there's no real way to prevent someone from just buying one for someone else. So of course the crooks will get guns.

Maybe if we had a few common sense restrictions- waiting periods, etc.- and a few less guns, it wouldn't be so easy for crooks to get them.

Yeah, but that's a slippery slope. If we make it harder for criminals and terrorists to legally buy guns, it's just a matter of time before Obama starts going house to house confiscating the weapons of law-abiding gun owners.

Slippery slope is a logical fallacy. Sometimes it is easily identified by the use of the words "slippery slope" in an argument.

Would you support taking other freedoms from them as well? Ir is it just this so you can be sarcastic and all proud of yourself?
