Shortpants,

While I agree with what you are saying for the most part, I wouldn't call Piers Morgan calling his pro gun guest absurd, idiotic, and stupid good debating. Anyone with a brain right now can tell he is full of S--t. It's just that half of the nation is lacking said brain.

That's my point. We have reached a point where the amount of voters in this country with a brain capable of logical thought is less than 50%. Just look at the last couple of elections. Where is the logic??? Knowing how this GAME works our reps need to find a way to get our message and the truth out there in a way that voters can digest it. We need votes period.

I say well done Mr. Ventura!!! He has done and said some things in the past that would not put him at the top of my list for our spokesperson but again I appreciate any and all who fight for our rights and I think he did an outstanding job there. I'd like to see the rest of that interview. I heard their was another great one with a Marine and Mr. Morgan. I'd like to find that one.

Ethan Parke........roped the deer in 1953. Put tags in his ears turned him loose then shot him in 1955. Always liked this pic
The story was told to me by his wife who owned the little motel we stayed at on a deer hunt in Malta Idaho about 17 years ago...... Youll never see that again. Just a cool pic of Idaho deer huntin history

Just my opinion.
The 2nd Amendment is not about sport or hunting. Never has been and hopefully never will be.

Thanks Dan, that's the clip I was referring to.

Desertbull you make a good point. My point is if that's our only answer to the question of why we need to own such guns then we will never convince the voters. They need to see the positives of them because they've only heard of the negatives. We don't want to come off as dooms day preppers. The voters are very uneducated yet they will cast their votes. We need to educate them.

Piers Morgan Confronts Former Marine: Where Do More Guns Lead Us Other Than 'Utter, Wild West Hell? - YouTube
This Boston kid is doing a better job than many others at presenting a well thought out argument, while clearly distinguishing certain issues within the larger scope of the the arguments.

How the highly respected, decorated general shown here could describe in detail what a .223 round does from an M4 or M16 and then say these guns shouldn't be available to the general public is beyond me. The M4 and M16 ARE NOT available to the general public. Was there more to that video? Did I miss something? How can someone so knowledgeable and respected not understand and/or clearly distinguish automatic/select fire from semi-automatic.

There is such an incredible lack of understanding and education on firearms in this country, yet so many are so willing to (not speaking here of the general) make such grand pronouncements from pure ignorance. There is a clear philosophical bias that the argument is approached with (presuppositions) at the outset by these folks and they don't care about what they don't know and don't recognize that they may not know some things they should.

As Boston points out, education is so critical.
