1. what if your "stop killing us" bumper sticker infuriates a gun advocate

who then chases after you in his car and tries shooting at you?? because you sort of insulted one of his lifes passions??

what if??

3. Hence "Stop killing us".

When was the last time you heard of 70+ people being injured by one guy with a knife?

That's what the OP bumper sticker says.

8. The only way to get rid of guns is to repeal the second amendment

 

Good luck with that.

Really, your analogy sucks.

They had guns to fight off invaders!

Excellent point for why taking away guns is insane.

That's irrational.

24. Where did I claim that?

You seem to have a logic chain of A, therefore B, therefore mugglewumpus.

Edit:
Oh, you might be confusing my guns/apples metaphor. A gun can, indeed, rust/die without killing anything.... But no gun can ever be less than a violent object of force, ever.

25. True. A cement mixer might give you more satisfying results if you were trying to ward

off an attack. It does have some positive uses, but it also has its disadvantages.

Stand still you oily bugger!

12. Everybody who owns a gun

 

Didn't you get the memo from the DU anti-gun lobby?

Everybody who owns a gun is personally responsible for what James Holmes did by virtue of owning a gun.

18. Every Taliban member is held responsible for throwing acid at women's faces.

Every Al-Queda member is held responsible for 9/11.

When you join, and support, a scary cult, well, you don't get to claim "but those are the bad guys!"

29. Human brains are not stupid. Some brains are so intelligent that they

have learned how to apply subset theory to the reasoning process.

Here's a neat website that might help quite a few of us improve our reasoning skills:

At Sat Jul 21, 2012, 06:36 PM an alert was sent on the following post:

Every Taliban member is held responsible for throwing acid at women's faces.
http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=view_post&forum=1002&pid=994302

REASON FOR ALERT:

This post is disruptive, hurtful, rude, insensitive, over-the-top, or otherwise inappropriate. (See <a href="http://www.democraticunderground.com/?com=aboutus#communitystandards" target="_blank">Community Standards</a>.)

ALERTER'S COMMENTS:

Claims DU gun owners are the equivalent of Al-Queda or the Taliban

You served on a randomly-selected Jury of DU members which reviewed this post. The review was completed at Sat Jul 21, 2012, 06:47 PM, and the Jury voted 3-3 to LEAVE IT.

Juror #1 voted to HIDE IT and said: I have trouble taking bopper's reply seriously, but I believe the alerter's interpretation is correct.
Juror #2 voted to HIDE IT and said: Broad brush smear and epic logic fail.
Juror #3 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: A stupid post, but the argument violate rules
Juror #4 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: I completely disagree with bopper's reasoning. He is way off target. (unintentional pun) However, it's his opinion, and has not yet crossed the line. He's very close, however. Would not be surprised if he pushes the envelope in the next couple responses, at this rate.
Juror #5 voted to LEAVE IT ALONE and said: No explanation given
Juror #6 voted to HIDE IT and said: cult member of what? the USA? broad brush smear insult of the highest order. HIDE IT

Thank you very much for participating in our Jury system, and we hope you will be able to participate again in the future.

16. The Top 1% power elite only allows the rest of us to have weapons so we can kill each other

and generate fear amongst us. It's a lot cheaper than employing armies of brownshirts to do the job.

22. Bumper stickers look kinda crappy.

Bumper stickers are always a bad idea, because no matter how witty or great they seem, they make your vehicle look even trashier than it really is.

Get some really crappy tattoos from your prison pal, instead.

26. Statistically fatties are more likely to kill people

 

(I assume fatties is ok since gun-nuts doesn't even raise an eyebrow,broad brush smears seem all the rage these days).

Of course they don't kill others with their choices.

Except, well they do since many have kids and they pass on their problems to their kids (adult onset diabetes being relabeled type II diabetes since it is now so common in children). They are literally killing and otherwise harming an entire generation with their selfishness and ignorance.


Now I'm not saying they don't have the right to live this way. But they certainly don't have the right to murder their children with their carelessness.



/how long do you suppose that post would last?

27. Who is 'you'?

 

Because accusing millions of people who've never harmed anyone of murder just makes you look stupid.
