Wow, it's like dejavu all over again.  This time the girl is originally from Bulgaria, and has been in this country for 6 years.  The crux of her argument appears to be that

anti chick: personal responsibility is something that's incontrollable
anti chick: u are talking about human beings
anti chick: bad bad human beings
anti chick: not about machines
anti chick: taht we can program
anti chick: "not to loose"

I'm going to try and wrap this up, then I'll post some other highlights.

*edit to change her name.

Here's what started it all
[blue]norman74[/blue]: I need a job like that, one day a week
[red]anti chick[/red]: why
[blue]norman74[/blue]: just for some extra cash, and for something to do
[red]anti chick[/red]: it kinda sucks sometimes
[red]anti chick[/red]: because i have no time
[blue]norman74[/blue]: it'd have to be something I like doing
[red]anti chick[/red]: to do whatever
[red]anti chick[/red]: :-(
[blue]norman74[/blue]: it'd be cool if I could find one in a gunshop or something
[red]anti chick[/red]: hmm guns
[red]anti chick[/red]: do u own a gun
[blue]norman74[/blue]: yes, a couple
[red]anti chick[/red]: u know...
[blue]norman74[/blue]: I even have one from bulgaria
[red]anti chick[/red]: i watch court tv religiously

followed up with
[blue]norman74[/blue]: why be afraid of guns, guns don't hurt people
[red]anti chick[/red]: people hurt people lol
[blue]norman74[/blue]: there ya go
[red]anti chick[/red]: thats the national rifle assoc. bs

then came the
[red]anti chick[/red]: sometimes the mind of a man cannot be controlled
[red]anti chick[/red]: and if there are no guns around
[red]anti chick[/red]: nobody will be killed
[blue]norman74[/blue]: you can't truly think that
[red]anti chick[/red]: its easier to not have a gun than control ur mind
[blue]norman74[/blue]: that is an extremely terrifying thought to me
[red]anti chick[/red]: cuz there are a lot of crazy ppl out there

then came the
[blue]norman74[/blue]: the idea that we should give up our guns because we are incapable of controling our own mines goes against everything this country was founded on
[blue]norman74[/blue]: our own minds
[red]anti chick[/red]: oh now that bs
[red]anti chick[/red]: and its a broad bs
[red]anti chick[/red]: its not specific
[red]anti chick[/red]: and its not realistic
[blue]norman74[/blue]: it is entirely specifi
[blue]norman74[/blue]: you are responsible for your own actions
[red]anti chick[/red]: u cannot generalize like that
[red]anti chick[/red]: exactly
[red]anti chick[/red]: so lets give everybody a gun
[blue]norman74[/blue]: if you take away personal responsibility, you take away the ability to be personally responsible

There was alot more, and I am saving it to post the rest later, but possibly the best part of all was how it ended
[blue]norman74[/blue]: so that's it then huh?
[blue]norman74[/blue]: you think I'm some insulting gun toting maniac?
[red]anti chick[/red]: i dont know what i think
[red]anti chick[/red]: i just think that u may the sweetest guy in the world
[red]anti chick[/red]: but...
[red]anti chick[/red]: i'd have to search ya every time u come to my house
[red]anti chick[/red]: lol
[red]anti chick[/red]: because i know myself ;-)
[red]anti chick[/red]: so
[blue]norman74[/blue]: hey, if that means getting patted down, I'm all for it;-)
[red]anti chick[/red]: run and save yourself
[red]anti chick[/red]: /me flips on court tv to remind herself why she passing on a cute tattooed biker guy

so, the 2 hours of conversation prior to this, about all sorts of other things, and the pictures that she'd seen of me and my tattoos, and everything else about me wasn't enough to so much as meet me for a beer, because ultimately I believe in the right to defend myself, whether from the mugger on the corner, or the .gov in the capitol, and the ability to do so responsibly.

Gentlemen, I submit to you that we are in deep-doo-doo as a nation.  Very deep doo-doo.

norman74, I take back the asshole remark about you.
I'll lay off the coffee too.

That was priceless!

She is from Bulgaria, one of the most backward countries in Europe.
Use that to your advantage, in the gun discussion.  Keep in mind that that area is saturated with guns, and several levels of illegal trafficking activities go through there, including human trafficking (usually girls - yes, actual underaged girls -  to go somewhere for whore work).
Ask her if the innocent victims of the mafia (yes, they are there too) should be able to defend themselves.
How old is this woman?  Sounds like she didn't learn very much from her time at home.

To answer a couple of questions...
She's 27.  Been here since she was 21.  I suspect, like many immigrants, she was probably "rich" when she lived there.

As for the armpits comments... I'm going to try and post some pics in the team member forum.  Ya'll can decide if you think she's got hairy pits or not.

Here's the question though.  Do you chalk someone like this up as a lost cause, or do you try and see if you can convert them?

And that post is why I love you, Troy... you are so very right so very often.  [:D]

That's the angle I was taking.  She kept rambling on about all the nuts in the world, so I'm going for the angle of protecting myself (and her?) from the nuts.
The upside here is she's hot as hell, so I'm hoping to at least work SOMETHING out.

Bring her out to one of our matches.  Then she can see how fun and lovable we "gun nuts" are.

Haha, yeah, and have all those guys ogling my babe? No thanks.

Seriously though, I've got to get her to even meet me in person first.  It's a long road between now and having her show up at a match.

And tell me again why we let dumb bitches vote?
