Reply Mr Pierogie says: January 27, 2013 at 09:56 Way to go Dan. Thanks for posting. Reply schizuki says: January 27, 2013 at 10:15 I’m seeing more and more anecdotal evidence that we libertarian types might just be the wave of the future. OK, not really a wave. But we’re getting bigger than a fringe niche! Yay, us! Reply joe says: January 27, 2013 at 10:37 Where do u put your sugar in your ar? Reply Don says: January 27, 2013 at 11:48 The magpul ACS stock has a little compartment that is perfect for holding sugar cubes or other tactical treats. I prefer skittles.

Reply jwm says: January 27, 2013 at 12:13 We seem to have picked up a subset of commentors on this I am a Gun Owner type of posting. This posting was started to show that not all gun owners are OFWG’s and that we represent a great cross section of humanity. Which it has done quite well. However, this minority subset here seems determined to drive away supporters of the 2a and quite possibly lose us our rights in the process based on the posters looks, or statements of their beliefs. If you accuse someone of having AIDS simply based on their photo and because you don’t agree with their statement you are as much a part of the gun control problem as Obama. Making statements like this is actually helping Obama and his desire to disarm us. Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: January 27, 2013 at 12:35 I for my part do not wish to drive others away from the pro-second amendment movement, but to enlighten them on other subjects when they choose to bring them up. Reply schizuki says: January 27, 2013 at 12:43 Yes, we crave enlightenment from you. Please continue to share your wisdom and lift us out of our darkness. Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: January 27, 2013 at 12:47 I know prenatal science is hard and it sounds boring, but if you put your mind to it you can lift yourself up out of ignorance all by yourself. schizuki says: January 27, 2013 at 12:58 I don’t come to gun sites for biology lessons from guys named after Harvey Korman characters, ace. But keep f***in’ that chicken. Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: January 27, 2013 at 13:08 Only a liberal would confuse the Gov with Hedley. schizuki says: January 27, 2013 at 12:50 “This posting was started to show that not all gun owners are OFWG’s and that we represent a great cross section of humanity. Which it has done quite well.” Amen. Looking like a homogeneous bloc just makes us easier to dismiss and marginalize. Reply ken says: January 27, 2013 at 13:14 “Minority subset” lol have you considered politics? Rhymes with “common sense solutions & “Reasonable limitatons.” Gtfo here with that s**t. You have a subset of people who think these posts are stupid and can’t help taking obvious shots at knobs who send their pics in. Lighteb up. Reply William says: January 27, 2013 at 16:32 “LOOKS”?? Are you frackin’ SERIOUS? That was a joke, right? Say it was a joke. Reply Mr Pierogie says: January 27, 2013 at 12:36 I just googled the morning after pill just to be sure, and it appears that it may be effective up to 5 days after unprotected sex. Obviously the sooner a woman takes it, the more effective it is. Again, it prevents fertilization, it does not kill any babies. I think you are confusing the RU 486 pill with the morning-after. Two different things, two different functions. Again, the morning after pill only prevents fertilization. So if it does not kill anything, why be against it? Reply William says: January 27, 2013 at 16:36 Well…. if he believes the “act” is only for makin’ babies and a duty to grit one’s teeth through, there ya go. Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: January 27, 2013 at 12:41 If you take a pill 5 days after intercourse and the egg has already been fertilized and it terminates the pregnancy than it is an abortifacient. Some abortifacient drugs can be used up to 60 day into the pregnancy. If the pill is taken and the pregnancy continues it is a contraception and I have no problem with that. Reply ken says: January 27, 2013 at 12:47 Ha I guess our delightful debate got deleted. Big 2a supporters not so big 1a supporters. Y’all need a sense of humor. But I would hate to turnoff the zero gun haters that this site is converting with my jokes. “Maybe I need to reevaluate my position on guns, let me find an intensily pro gun site with a bullethole in their logo and see what they and their commenters have to say”-no one ever. Reply Gov. William J. Le Petomane says: January 27, 2013 at 12:52 I have to say that none of the gun forum sites I’ve been on would tolerate this kind of discussion to go anywhere near this far. On most of them you can get banned for life for criticizing their beloved 1911. Reply schizuki says: January 27, 2013 at 12:53 “Y’all need a sense of humor.” Y’all need to say something that’s actually funny. Reply William says: January 27, 2013 at 16:34 And y’all be sure not to let the door hit you in the ass on the way to your “better” group. Reply Mr Pierogie says: January 27, 2013 at 12:55 Oh Kenny boy, how could I ever win an argument with you? You master of logic and reasoning, you saw right through me and my “love of abortion” and being secretly in love with Obama! And here I was, thinking that I was safe, just pretending to be pro-2A and pro- individual freedom, when it was only a matter of time before some brilliant mind such as yours uncovered my lies! hahahaha…. your comment just made my day buddy. Let’s see…I’m a member of both the NRA and the SAF, I’ve been posting comments for a while here and you can see that my views are generally libertarian, I’m pro-2A, I don’t “love” abortion, as you claim, but I do support a woman’s right to choose. But all this is just a cover, as you say, to cleverly infiltrate and sabotage the pro-2A crowd with my leftist views. Look kid, not all people will agree with you all the time. And the emotional argument you’re making about watching kids grow up only shows the weakness of every other argument you’re trying to make. Have you forgotten already that the emotional argument against gun ownership is the weapon of choice for gun grabbers ever since Newtown? Do you see the irony there? To me individual freedom means, among other things, that the woman should have the choice. You and I may not like that choice, but in my opinion it should be up to her. Unlike you, I don’t want to impose my own will upon other people and force them to make only the decisions that I’m ok with. And regarding the OP, do you think before you say something? Again, you’re the one judging him, not me. I don’t care one way or another. You seem to care way too much. Why is that? Reply Lance says: January 27, 2013 at 17:34 Good to finally see you Dan may you keep up the good fight and posting. Reply dan says: January 28, 2013 at 00:04 Thanks y’all. Happy to be a 2a supporter.
