You are right, we will win.

Boland has it right - I have no axe to grind with anyone here, even those who post some of the more disgusting stuff. But this can't look good from the outside looking in. Sometimes I really wish AK47.net hadn't died so some of these people wouldn't feel the need to hang around here uploading their fantasies.

This is an open board. [b]Any[/b] horse's ass can register and post here. A few do just that. Just because they post here does not mean they are gun owners. Also, those select few do tend to stand out more than everybody else. Attention, good or bad, is what they crave. What they need is a life.

Boland, There you go spreading your UN NWO Politically correct BS again! Weren't you just making fun of all the fat gun owners in your last thread??? Telling them they need to run a couple laps between twinkies. That wasn't very nice... BTW, I'm just yanking your chain Boland![:D]

Well, I actually agree with you, people here need to be a bit more polite to each other. I always try (but sometimes fail) to treat someone the way I'd treat them if I was talking face to face at the range. Some folks are just mean and nasty though, and would speak this way in person. I still like to mess with you for being a blue-helmet supporter... [frag]

Boland, you are completely correct, but short of the mark. It isn't just that the Anti's will win, it's that the American society will collapse. Civilization is a cooperative effort. A society is a group of individuals in which everybody (or at least the vast majority) agrees on a system of ethics and morals. They all agree on what is "right" and what is "wrong", whether those beliefs encompass individual freedom or cannibalism. These beliefs can change over time without destroying the society as a whole, but you can't change too many things at once without doing so. America is no longer a society. It's a group of individuals living in a general geographic area. There is no longer a vast majority with a common set of rules. Nothing is "wrong". Nothing is "right". This isn't generally true - it doesn't have to be. Most people still have a generally agreed upon system of morals and ethics. However, there is some point at which the minority is big enough to have the power to destroy the civilization that supports it. It used to be that civilizations collapsed when the barbarians came over the protective walls. In our case, the barbarians are already inside the walls. The barbarians are us. [sniper] R.A. Heinlein once wrote that the worst thing about living in the declining age of a great civilization - was knowing that you were.

It's not individuals - it is groups of individuals who insist on NOT going along with the general rules of society, that cause a society to collapse from within. I suggest you read Civil War II by Tom Chittum. [sniper]

Didn't we used to deride each others choices in guns? Now we just rip each other. Ah for the good old days of 1911 versus . 45 DA. [smoke] BTW, the 1911 was out of date by the 1930's, catch a clue you old traditionalists.

And yet it remains one of the finest combat handguns ever designed. See? We can still carry on a little on topic banter here... [8D]

You know why the anti's will win? Because you people are so damned paranoid about becoming part of the global community and continually badmouth the humanitarian UN. They are holding a gun rights conference in July and supporting that would be a good start.

Gun owners seem to eat our own looking for anyway to deride or ridicule others.

Besides the porno freaks (I agree with you on that), the ranks of gun owners are filled with closet liberal/nazi's, [I]plus most gun owners don’t know who the enemy truly is[/I]! The erosion of decency and the twisting of what’s right and wrong is responsible. Gun owners believe they have their rights, but quite a few of those people have adopted the liberal way, and live those liberal principals all the while screaming for freedom to own firearms. Ignorant Hypocrite’s who want their cake and eat it too. [grenade] They want their freedom but they are not willing to act like a responsible gun owner. Owning a gun DEMANDS personal responsibility, not just knowing where not to point a loaded gun, but how you present yourself and how you act. A line has to be drawn somewhere, and I believe the line should be drawn at such indecent things (porno, etc), but doing that nowadays is character assassination. Use to be those things were a no-no and socially unacceptable, but thank the liberals for the erasing of boundaries. Because of that an individual is free to do anything they wish under the politically correct (a liberal invention) guise of “don’t judge me!” Speaking of not knowing whom the real enemy is, Boland, I hope that when you leave the military you will recognize the wolf in sheep’s clothing.
