    Re: Gun Control and your stance

    I'm not personally offended nor do I think you stepped over any boundaries on ODN, I just think you have turned from the topic to discuss me and my style of argument. No one on the staff will chide...

    Re: Gun Control and your stance

    Before I start, read your own post and see how many times you make personal rhetorical attacks on me. I bet if I'd said them to you, you would find them offensive or evidence of my emotional state....

    Not especially compared with any other culture. Imperial Japan was more an anomaly than a constant theme. They have had historical wars with China and Korea. But what nation with a 1000+ year history...

    I have yet to see anyone, in the general gun debate, say we need to get rid of guns used for hunting. Japan uses guns for hunting. Guns for hunting are fine. They are not indicative of social...

    That is what I was responding to, it's just that my view of the current controversy is that what most people argue is somewhat irrelevant. I think there are two more...

    No, I'm saying it is based on a lack of social trust. We don't trust other Americans not to attack us or we don't trust our government to respect our liberty. It's not about illegal behavior other...

    What do you mean by Know? Generally, what an investigator does is run down the leads and do their due diligence to see what they can find. They try not to "know" what is true or what is not. They...

    Fair enough, but I see too many trying to claim there was no crime to be investigated. There was, it was more a question who was involved in said crime.
