Says it all.

Says it with language not safe for work, or kiddies - but says it none the less.

"Fcuk off, I like guns". Yes, it is the only argument, and actually doesn't have to be good, bad, mediocre, or "best". It is just the only one.

Someone recently said to me, "But you don't need guns", to which I replied "Rosa Parks didn't need to sit at the front of the bus".

I watched the video and found it tedious. The arguments and premises were weak and obviously prepared for a friendly audience. He has no clue.

Hey, Dushan, did you hear about the guy who took out the Oklahoma City beheader with his 2nd Amendment-approved firearm as the perp was working his way through the veins of his co-workers?

So, if the US withdrew all military support, how long before he'd have to restart his career in an asian language? Just wondering....

Oh, yes, I did. Saved several lives, I am sure.

Did you hear about the latest Jihadist attacker in Quebec? He ran two military personnel down with his car. One died. Cops gave chase. When they caugh up with him he lunged with a knife at them. Here is where it gets good. Cops had guns and shot him. Sorted.

Exactly. Exercising one's rights without regard for the actual "need".

I suppose it can be easy to confuse "exercising one's rights" and "infringing the rights of other people".

If you have a brain the size of a hamster's.

Nope, sorry I'm still not getting the connection - An act of defiance (by definition not exercising her rights) which changed the world for millions of people versus having a gun cos you can.

You know she wasn't sitting at the front, right?

Well, glad to see the usual lefties ready to pronounce inanimate objects as evil and spontaneously aroused to murder and mayhem. The same people who caution us not to judge Muslims, Jews, and other "outsiders" by the evil actions of the few members of said group; call the dogs of government down on millions of law-abiding firearms practitioners exercising their constitutional rights as murderers, lunatics or fetishists. They make that pronouncement out if sheer ignorance of the people. Is that about it?

At 1:30 or so, he says it all--Aussies are sheep who just surrender to those in charge. Says it all about your lot.

I have a right to keep and bear arms; I have no criminal or mental illness problems, so I plan on exercising those rights until a majority of both Houses of Congress and 38 states vote to repeal the Second Amendment. Don't hold your breathe.

She could have easily sat at the back and gotten where she was going, but it was her right to sit where she wanted to. She exercised her right, despite not needing to, just because it was her right.

Owning a firearm is another right that one exercises despite the fact that ownership is not needed.

I'd stop comparing yourself to someone who has achieved a lot more than you ever will, even with a gun, and someone you obviously know little about.
