Bluewind, homegrown terror, and bacon, out of curiosity, what are your degrees? And where do you get information? You are making a lot of information claims and I am wondering about your source, in no way to offend or judge any of you... And I see a lot or pro-gun people saying that anything can be used to kill anyone, and while this may be true, how many children would have died if he brought a spoon to the school- None. Guns were invented for the sole purpose to kill, whether it be animals or humans.

i've never claimed to have a degree of any kind, i've just read and experienced a LOT during my life and tend to retain certain things.

So remember, when you're feeling very small and insecure,
How amazingly unlikely is your birth,
And pray that there's intelligent life somewhere up in space,
'Cause there's bugger-all down here on Earth.

Bomb, I think you made some excelent points. Thank you for sharing

Matt, I'm not saying that I am more educated than anyone else. I was simply asking that the low blows againts people who sited their educations stop as it was counter productive. As far as my own education, I have a A.A. GenEd graduating Magna Cum Laud (sp?) and PTK. All my electives were psy or science classes. Then, I went for COTA through a tough program and nearly was finished when I became disabled, so my classes were heavy in psycology, sociology, anatomy, physiology, and data. I citited where I got the numbers I used in my post. The other bit was personal experence. Pathos, ethos, and logos

People are always going to make comments like knives kill or hammers kill and are gtheyoing to be banned etc. Its like thereptile banning thing. They say the same thing. Dogs can kill so are we going to ban them, too?

In some cities/counties certain breeds are banned.

4. Mods are mods and mods are humans. Do not look at them as superior or condacending. They are people just as we are who are trying to keep the peace as best as they can
My comment about the mods or mod was not regarding their or her job as moderator and keeping the peace, it was her personal comments that came off as dismissive, condescending and a wee bit egotistical.

That is what the poster said. Both sides were coming off wrong

Not all gun owners are ignorant, rednecks or hicks or hillbillies. Most of us are educated and have chosen to acquire firearms after giving it much consideration.

I believe that if a person has a problem with a moderator it ought to be taken up privately instead of plastering dissatisfaction all over the forum.
