We do have unity. The details are blurry and there is virtually nothing but disinformation going around and the issue is all emotion and no thought, but our unity can't be ignored (Obama and Reid cannot even get a vote in Congress on the current gun control because they don't have the votes)

The reason I made this thread was for people who don't understand our argument that gun control = people control. I figured that most of the people who don't see that argument are usually race/slavery obsessed and they can't have rational discussion past that. This is clear example that they should be able to relate to, that is we need to think of it from a minority standpoint and the rights of minorities. Like speech, majorities do not need protection as much as minorities.

And for the record yes I believe every person who has been enslaved throughout history against their will (not indentured servitude) should have had access to a weapon sometime during their slavery, hopefully before they were taken slaves so they could make their own decision how their life and fate would be determined. Slavery is the extreme opposite of Freedom, and Freedom is worth fighting for, and it's better to have a fighting chance than to be helpless and bound to another's will.

Forgive me if I feel compelled to correct you, but since no one else did, here goes nothing: unless you're referring to the brand name Segway® Human Transporter, a self-balancing personal transportation device, you needed to use "segue."

Thank you good sir; I am not above admitting my lack of knowledge and subsequent fail. /tiphat

With guns?No is the quick answer,there are obviously many exceptions to such a blanket assertion..
Similiarly,no,Osama Bin Laden did not have the same right to life as you and me,nor would a Hitler,Pol Pot,etc..

Life,liberty and the pursuit of happiness. your life my life are more important then your liberty my liberty...that is why the founders put it in that order. I cant take credit for this idea a father of a slain child from Newtown said it.

Why do people not have the right to protect themselves with guns when it's the most effective means for people of all statures? In fact, it's the best form of self-defense for women, who are typically smaller than an assailant who may try to commit rape. Not all people are of the same size and strength, yet firearms can equalize that disadvantage.

So if I'm not using a gun to take away your life, then why can't I have one and carry it? Sounds like can both can live in perfect harmony.
