144. naaaaaah

We're all lefty-type liberals here (by American standards)

I do know that US standards are pretty fucked, in this and many respects, but that one there is just a big old guffaw. No. You aren't all.

so chances are we know women who aren't comfortable with owning, let alone carrying, a firearm.

Actually, chances are you know some people, including women, who are opposed on principle to the idea of people wandering around in public with firearms, and for whom it would be completely contrary to their principles to do that, so they don't.

But you go ahead and take that drippingly patriarchal tone when you talk about women and how they just aren't "comfortable" with those gun things.

For the rest -- I'm quite bored with pretending to believe that anybody didn't grasp anything I said the first time I said it. If anybody wants to keep pretending they didn't, they can have a picnic.
