ONE.MORE.TIME.FOR.THE.WORLD.

As anyone who isn't a total MORON cannot fail to see (like most of the people on this forum), I OBVIOUSLY intended to make a joke about the 3nd (Turdened) Amendment, you fucking Liberal pull-your-foreskin-over-your-head radiator. You're misquoting AGAIN! :roll:

Actually not; my finger slipped between the "3" and the "2", which are next to each other on my keyboard - mea culpa. Corrected it all the same, though. :mrgreen:

I'll play dumb (but then again, I actually am) and act like I don't know what you mean, even though I know you're correct but I can't admit it because I'm on one side politically and you're on the other...

I could be wrong, but.....

I don't think anyone is talking about tearing up the 2nd amendment.....

I don't think that by restricting military weapons and their accessories that the majority of right minded law abiding firearm(s) enthusiasts will rise up and go to war with their fellow Americans and or the Police/FBI/Homeland/National Guard/American Army.....This is not 1861 and America is not the Middle East.....

Very thoughtful take from a “foreigner” GG, unlike the alien to our north DB. Common sense laws are not about abolishing the 2nd Amendment and never have been.

My point was...that once the left start to chisel away at the 2nd Amendment and potentially succeed through whatever means necessary, they obviously won't stop and will attempt to deconstruct other parts of the US Constitution if they can. Don't pretend like that wouldn't happen if they got their way...:roll:

You’d make a good parrot, DB. Polly, want a cracker? :)

That argument is ridiculous. It’s like saying you can’t mow the lawn because you’re afraid you’re going to cut the big oak tree in the middle of it down.

At a glance, it appears Canadian gun laws and requirements are more stringent than in the U.S. Do you oppose these laws?

And in order to make this point, you found it necessary to attack the views of someone who wasn't talking about the 2nd amendment at all.

There are myriad of legal protections in place to stop any deconstruction of the US Constitution without complete agreement from all political parties and a referendum/vote by the people, without any electoral college hocus pocus.

Wellington City Council responds to criticism of 'nightmare' hand statue
Vita Molyneux

The instalment of a new "nightmarish" sculpture atop Wellington's City Gallery has caused controversy across the capital - and now the city council has weighed in.

Wellington City Council stood up for the city's new artwork initially, posting its support on Twitter.

"This 'nightmare' is our delightful new resident and we won't hear a word against him," it wrote on Wednesday.

The tweet was accompanied by a frighteningly close-up picture of Quasi.

"We love this little guy. So if you're not a fan I suggest you talk to the hand," the council continued, accompanied by another picture of the sculpture.

However, a picture of Quasi in the darkest hour of the night seemed to sway Wellington City Council.

In the image, Quasi stares blankly into the camera, illuminated in the blackness by a bright light.

"Well, okay," wrote the council.

"It is a little creepy…"

Quasi has made world news since his arrival in Wellington from Christchurch.

The giant, anthropomorphic hand was airlifted into place on Monday and instantly received ruthless criticism.

The five-metre tall hand was called "nightmarish," "hideous" "frightening" by social media users.

He's scheduled to be stationed above the gallery for the next three to four years.

Ghost Note: I love this thing, as do many of the folks I've spoken to.....apparently there are already plans afoot to steal it.....

What is the purpose of this thing, is it a reference to something? Perhaps some ancient NZ folklore?
Maybe they could make a compromise. I hear the Hamburger Helper hand is looking for work, still a hand, much more friendly!

Would the founding fathers allow a gun for every person that wanted one? I seem to remember some sort of militia being the purpose of it.

I like it too although the face kind of reminds me of Trump. Hand’s much too big though. Some people always get upset about a new art installation, public building, park design, etc. but they eventually get used to it and it becomes a non-issue. Some of the original critics will even like it in time.

No, it's not ridiculous, unless you actually think that the left would all of a sudden stop dead in their tracks if they started to chisel away at the 2nd Amendment successfully, since there are MILLIONS of far-left nutjobs out there... :roll:

Ah, poor, wee Disco Boy; just minding his own business, making daisy chains and chatting with his chums, when wicked old Caputh pounces and viciously misquotes him.
Btw, as many here and indeed on other forums have tried to explain to you, "misquote" does not mean what you appear to think it means. One does not need to know every word in the English language, but it is useful to know the meaning of the words one frequently employs oneself.

So now you're claiming you don't misquote or take my statements out of context, while conveniently leaving out key information?! Riiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight. And monkeys can fly out of my butt!!! :mrgreen: :mrgreen: :mrgreen:
