"The family member told the FBI that Wagshol exhibited disobedient behavior since kindergarten, the warrant said. His "scary off" behavior got so bad, she said, that they stopped holding Thanksgiving gatherings and didn't invite Wagshol to his cousin's wedding, the warrant said."

Surely we can all agree that when a guy talks like this, it's time for action. Is it a mental health issue, or is he just an a hole?

Take away his guns? Absolutely, although the NRA says no. Put him in an institution? What about his rights? What is the least restrictive setting to deal with someone like this?

Well, his statements I quoted upstream are from 2010.

Apparently the police think the time for action is nine years afterwards.

Maybe we should start keeping an eye on spoiled little rich kids that live in their daddy's basement, that haven't worked a day in his life, who pretends to be a woman on a message board.

Now tell me, why does Bass Pro Shops sell large-capacity magazines? For hunting? It won't cost them much because I never shop there but I will still join a boycott of that company, maybe I'll discover they own other companies I do business with.

I post as an adult when dealing with fellow adults. I treat you like an idiotic child because you post like an idiotic child. You teach people how to treat you.

In this very thread I responded to someone talking about the drug war, and you idiotically jumped in to say ME talking about the drug war was a bizarre segue, instead of reading and seeing that I was responding to someone else bringing it up.
Then when called out on it, you couldn't admit your mistake so you switched to whining about being called an idiot... All before the grand finale of saying you dont care if you're called an idiot, even though you're still whining about it now.

You have several things to learn. This is the last time I'll tell you, but I'm guessing you still won't learn"

1) an opinion that is opposite yours is not invalid simply because you don't like it.

2) A person offering an opinion opposite of yours is not a child, imbecile, or any other childish names you wish to use.

3) A person who uses childish rhetoric says more about his own emotional state than he does anyone else's

4) An emotinally mature person is able to address another person be they equal or below their intellect without lowering themselves to their level, which is why I don't call you names. I do not want to lower myself to your level

5) An emotinalliy mature person takes the high road and keeps himself well above those who act like children. He will, not, however talk like one of those children

Learn these things and exercise them and you will be a better person. BUt I suspect you'll continue to act like a spoiled brat whenever you hear a differing opinion to your own and take the low road.

That's the actual job of a semi-automatic/select fire carbine and why they replaced the vastly more powerful Battle Rifles of WW2, pin people in place.

It's not a militia either.

It's nothing more than nearly unfettered access to firearms for whatever purpose you like.

I get it. You're scared. You're white. Your natural reaction is to restrict rights of others. Current ways of keeping everybody not white down are going out of style and it's time for a War on Guns.

You should probably slow your roll on that one.

Gun violence does a great job of putting young men down in general.
It's the leading cause of death for young men ages 15-19.
www.childtrends.org

In the United States, 30 percent of deaths in 2016 among young men ages 15 to 19 can be attributed to gun violence. This is significantly higher than the percentage of young men who died in motor vehicle accidents (23 percent), or of illness or disease (21 percent). All other causes of death (including non-motor vehicle accidents like drowning and poisoning) made up 26 percent of deaths in 2016.

Of that 30%, it's 18% homicide, 10% suicide, and 2% other.

That's not self defense weaponry that's mass murder weaponry.

Any small arm is dual use both defensive and offensive.

Duh. But you dont need an AR15 or large magazine to defend yourself.

People should be restricted to revolvers, shotguns, and bolt action rifles. Anything more than that is just for wannabe rambos and psychopaths.

I get it. You're conservative. Your brain isn't wired to care for innocent victims unless they're you or your own family.

A friend who lives across the street was a cop and is now a detective.

In addition to some handguns (needed for work and home defense) he also has an AR-15 which is not for work purposes. He probably has other weapons as well, but he's only ever mentioned handguns and the AR.

If you could have your way would you like to see him be deemed a criminal for possessing his AR?

People should be ...

That's a legislative (balancing) decision that was made centuries ago when the Second Amendment was passed and ratified.

I get it. You're a statist. You don't care how many rights you take away or the brutal side effects on minorities, as long as you get your illusion of safety.

White People 101. Want gun control? Have black people buy guns in mass and protest armed.

Well this was an interesting discussion until it turned into name calling, then an explanation of name calling, then name calling about explaining name calling, and on and on and on....

tiresome.

1. They didn't "balance" anything in the post you responded to because most of the weapons he's saying should be outlawed didn't exist.

2. Over a century of 2nd Amendment jurisprudence limited civilian firearm ownership to that which has some nexus to a well-regulted militia, dozens of appellate and SC cases, which you conveniently dismiss as "wrong."

So the country needs to tolerate mass murder of humans because somewhere some farmer is in a hurry to kill a bunch of wild pigs. Got it.

Sorry you didn't recognize the satire for what it was.

No, I don't think Hi-Caps are a necessity, just compensation.
