Poopy Pants says that gun owners are the new Rosa Parks and they will sit down

at the front of the bus. I saw this on Politics Nation. I was wondering since when was it that gun owners have been considered inferior to non gun owners. Did I miss something?

4. Thank you...

I haven't been able to think of him in any other term since his charming story of how he avoided being drafted.

15. His story on avoiding the draft shows what he is. A coward.

I registered when I turned 18 and my name was put in the Draft during the last years of the vietnam war. That is what was expected of me and I did it. I ended up getting a high number and didn't get sent into the military.

8. Swell, let's see if he has the courage to do it without a gun.

Rosa Parks was unarmed.

9. Of course he doesn't have that kind of courage...

He even admitted that he doesn't have that kind of courage in the way he avoided the draft. I had a relative that was a contentious objector he went to Canada. I don't know what ever happened to him after that because I was like 5 at the time, just heard the story. Anyway those that went to Canada had courage, the ones that pretended they were crazy not so much.

10. Very true.

Your relative could have returned, President Carter gave amnesty to all who went to Canada to avoud the draft.

11. He probably did...

But he never contacted anyone. My family would have disowned him. They didn't speak well of him. To this day I can't remember his name. But for a while it was oh so and so went to Canada. It probably wasn't a completely uncommon thing back then. Families not agreeing with the men who didn't want to go to war. I say nuts to that. No one should be forced to kill another person for political gain.

13. I was never called for the draft, but was eligible during the Viet Nam war.

My father (WWII veteran) and I had this conversation and made peace with each other on the issue. I would have gone to Canada. He understood Viet Nam was entirely different than WWII. He was not an educated man, but brilliant with common sense and logic.

16. I am so happy you have some understanding people in your family.

If only everyone did. I think Vietnam tore a lot of families up.

18. The "understanding" didn't come easily, believe me.

But it came, after time. The big moment came when I informed my dad that he had spent his hard-earned dollars to sent me to parochial school to teach me "Thou shalt not kill". He damn near exploded when I said that. Then he cried. It was the defining moment in our adult relationship. We loved each other from then until he died in 1990.

19. Oh I love a happy ending...

It doesn't have to be easy. Some of the best moments are when after a lot of discussions and tears the family comes together in understanding. Just think if you had just gone along with all the BS that was Vietnam your dad wouldn't have grown the way he did. That is a good thing for both of you. Good on you for sticking to your beliefs and good on him for being able to understand even if it took a lot of time.

17. The brazen stupidity of the gun nuts is only matched by their arrogance

Yeah, they're Rosa Parks.

Douchebags.
