Mr. Mellor 'Evidently" didn't read the short paragraph immediately above the one where the term 'warped outlook' was used. It contained a couple of computer links that he could have read. If he, or any other person, rational or irrational, thinks that a gun can leap up off the table and kill someone unassisted, then I'd say that person has a warped outlook. You must have heard this before, "Guns don't kill people, people kill people". Every single gun I have ever run across in my lifetime has been an inanimate object. They have just lain there until someone picked them up and manipulated their working parts!!
I, and most other “rational thinking” people would be all for a mental health background check to weed out all these 'mental cases' who have perpetrated virtually all of the mass murders. BUT, That would go against the liberal, elitist cognoscente's invasion of privacy that they “value” so highly, but are so incogitant in their daily infringement of same on other people. You know, we of the lower intelligence quotient.
Well, as usual the liberal mindset leaps to the fore and reformats what I said to fit their agenda. I said, “these two internet sites 'just may' be an inspiration for someone with an open mind and a rational thought process —— blah blah". I think you are taking the commentary from the TV talking heads who are known for their totally unbiased outlook and getting them confused with my own personal views.
You have to read the whole thing, and respond in the same context. A good journalist doesn't cherry pick comments and or utterances, and then re-context them to suit his own purposes.
I've read the sentence a dozen times and can find no rational interpretation of those words that only, "rational people think as I do".
If you are of the mindset that this country is doing just fine under the present administration of liars, cheats, tax evaders, thieves and outright crooks, then you are right about the universal suffrage, only it didn't work this time around and the 51% are finally beginning to figure that out albeit too late! Witness all those non taxes that are now hitting us.
I cannot for the life of me understand why you folks of the left keep trying to rush headlong into the very selfsame predicament and servitude that the Germans, Russian, Italians of WWII placed themselves in as well as the Chinese,and many of the far eastern nations of today and the last sixty years find themselves. Under the boot of tyrants and all because they willingly let themselves be disarmed and so have no means of fighting back. About the only reason I can come up with, is that you plan on being the ones holding the whips.
Oh by the way, I find it kind of hysterically incongruous that it is totally okay with you, of the
deer eradication folks, that we should be able to have all the guns we need or want to shoot
the absolutely defenseless deer, but a human being on Block Island and in the rest of the
USA should be prevented from owning guns of any kind, in order to protect them selves from
a predatory government, should one arise, or any member of the total inventory of the
common, vulturine, rapacious, two legged kind of homo-sapien-crookus! The really sad part of
the whole commentary is that every crook, 'bad guy' and politician will have all the guns they
want and YOU won't have ANY!! Everett R Littlefield USN Ret.
