Taking your AR-15 out on a dinner date really IS more dangerous than posting on DU. [View all]

So dangerous, in fact, that I'd run for my life if that happened in any restaurant that I was eating in.

Folks who claim that posting on DU is as dangerous as going out on a dinner date with your AR-15 are either:

(1) trying to convince you to just sit there and wait to be shot when somebody brings their AR-15 out on a dinner date with them,


(2) trying to convince you that it is too dangerous to post on DU and that you should stop posting here.

Personally, given the choice between posting on DU and dining with some ammosexual and his AR-15 lover, I'll choose DU any day of the week, warts and all.

That said, comparing DU with deadly weapons is much less offensive than comparing Black folks, Gay folks, or Trans folks to deadly weapons.

At least DU isn't human, so the comparison isn't as dehumanizing as some of the others comparisons that get made here regularly.

By the way, why do we never see Straight White Males compared with deadly weapons here on DU?

Do we not look dangerous enough for such comparisons to be made?

So, which is more dangerous?
