that's because some tend to ignore any and all facts that don't support the fairy tales they're pushing. canuckledragger Jun 14 #16
So, since you are the keeper of the facts, lay some on me. yagotme Jun 14 #19
yes, it's certainly obvious that someone is trying to derail a meaningfull discussion here. canuckledragger Jun 14 #21

Thanks for the reply EarlG Jun 15 #97
You're welcome. Nice to have a normal discourse for once. yagotme Jun 15 #100
Pretty sure. SarahD Jun 14 #18
Bump stocks are the issue of the day. yagotme Jun 14 #23
According to that logic SarahD Jun 14 #27
The flaw in that logic is, the installation of a full auto switch in a Glock, yagotme Jun 14 #38
If the conversion device was made before 1986 and you could thatdemguy Jun 14 #40
The law in question does not allow that Zeitghost Jun 14 #47

Semantics much? Bluesaph Jun 15 #67
"Explain yourself" yagotme Jun 15 #73

No, I'm stating factual history. yagotme Jun 16 #107
I'm all for personal liberty too. But not on stupid toys. Bluesaph Jun 16 #108

Good news. SarahD Jun 14 #50
Yes, as I understand the SC ruling, if Congress passes legislation banning them it would. MichMan Jun 15 #51
Bump stocks are for target practice and wasting ammo Melon Jun 15 #58
Don't you think that once in Las Vegas was enough? LuckyCharms Jun 15 #79
One incident. yagotme Jun 15 #86
You are very hard over on this issue. LuckyCharms Jun 15 #88
USSC made a ruling. I looked at the law, have knowledge about how bump stocks work, yagotme Jun 15 #91
That's nice. n/t LuckyCharms Jun 15 #92
Thank you. yagotme Jun 15 #93
You wouldn't be happy if you knew what I am thinking. n/t LuckyCharms Jun 15 #94

She said that? Really? I'd like to read that... nt yagotme Jun 14 #12
Disrespect. Kingofalldems Jun 14 #13
Who? What? Where? yagotme Jun 14 #14
You gave a smart aleck answer to the poster. Kingofalldems Jun 14 #17
Stated I hadn't viewed the statement in question. yagotme Jun 14 #20
someone obviously CAN'T handle having their derailment attempts questioned! canuckledragger Jun 14 #22
Talking about OP subject equals derailment. yagotme Jun 14 #25

then try telling the truth. canuckledragger Jun 14 #45
I'd ask to cite where I lied, but I already know what you're going to say... nt yagotme Jun 14 #49
And we know that someone will gaslight and lie regardless. canuckledragger Jun 15 #56
Well spotted, canuckledragger Hekate Jun 15 #59
Yes, someone has been busy following me around the board. yagotme Jun 15 #71
Yes, someone has been running wild pushing a lot of propaganda and bad-faith arguments. canuckledragger Jun 15 #81
Yup, and I counter that propaganda as best I can. yagotme Jun 15 #84
and when questioned, some just double down on the lies and propaganda. canuckledragger Jun 15 #87
I know what you mean. I've seen that a lot lately. yagotme Jun 15 #90
2d time you've called me a liar. yagotme Jun 15 #70
Someone thinks it's all about them. canuckledragger Jun 15 #80
When you are replying to me, and infer/directly say I'm lying, well, I guess that DOES make it about me. yagotme Jun 15 #83
How about this: Gun violence is the leading cause of death for American children. Irish_Dem Jun 14 #28
You say this every time the Supreme Court issues a decision TexasDem69 Jun 14 #32
How many children are killed by bump stocks yearly? Is there even a number, other that Las Vegas? yagotme Jun 14 #39
gun violence apologists are pathetic. canuckledragger Jun 14 #43
Name calling now. You're really sinking low. yagotme Jun 14 #46
boy, gun violence apologists get angry when their propaganda and gaslighting are called out! canuckledragger Jun 15 #55
They are very sensitive people, after all Hekate Jun 15 #61

I have NEVER alerted on a post here. I have been tempted, though. yagotme Jun 15 #68
It's my understanding that this is a civil discussion board. yagotme Jun 15 #69

The US regularly kills its citizens to appease the gun gods. Irish_Dem Jun 14 #26
Gun deaths happen because the GOP and Movement applegrove Jun 14 #31
Do you really believe this? TexasDem69 Jun 14 #34
I'm talking about the people behind the people who don't want reasonable gun regulation. applegrove Jun 14 #37
And the vast majority of gun deaths are caused by handguns MichMan Jun 15 #52
But it would stop an event, where 60 people died, 500 injured, applegrove Jun 15 #53
Most likely it wouldn't have stopped the event Kaleva Jun 15 #54
But the rate of fire during the Vegas shooting was much greater than applegrove Jun 15 #57
Again, only a miniscule percentage of gun deaths can be attributed to either AR15 or bump stops MichMan Jun 15 #64
I guess we are just helpless beings and there is nothing that can be done Hekate Jun 15 #62
Sure. Lock up lawbreakers. yagotme Jun 15 #77
