    My penis sense is tingling, so I am checking back into this thread.
    My blog.

    We struggled against apartheid in South Africa, supported by people the world over, because black people were being blamed and made to suffer for something we could do nothing about; our very skins. It is the same with sexual orientation. It is a given.

    It all depends on why someone is collecting guns (and what type of gun), is it based on paranoia, is it a hobby, is it for hunting; from personal experience I can attest that those I've met who go out and buy assault rifles tend to fall into two categories: the show off or the survivalist. While guns are a dangerous collection much of the motivation is like any of form of collection, be it comics, cars, etc. and let's face it, their are dick measurers in any 'culture' be it guns or cars or comics.
    What have I always believed? That, on the whole, and by and large, if a person lived properly, not according to what any priests said, but according to what seemed decent and honest inside, then it would, at the end, more or less, turn out ok.

    And yet the numbers of over all owners is drastically falling, 50% of all households 50 years ago versus 32% toady and falling. The only demographics where gun ownership aren't falling are middle aged and elderly white males. A surprising fact to go along with that is that the demograpgic with the least gun ownership is latin males...and they are the fastest growing demographic in the US which should tell you about the future.

    And the wording in that pole leads it greatly open to interpretation, I for one would consider limiting the access to the huge ammo clips for automatic and semiautomatic weapons to be gun control not bans and I imagine there are others who would see it that way as well. In fact, that seems to be just what the poll says:

    62 percent support a law that would ban the sale and possession of high-capacity ammunition clips that can hold more than 10 bullets at a time compared to 35 percent who oppose.

    Owning two and having a big red car with a purple stripe painted down the side. Grrrrrrrr!!!

    Dan Slott's Thing was pretty spectacular. Should've been a lot longer than it was, though...

    So can anyone confirm that that was a real ad or find info on exactly when and where it ran?

    Because all I'm finding is outraged news coverage and suggestions that it ran somewhere back in 2010.

    The "man card reissued" one? I searched the image on Google and yeah, apparently it ran in Maxim.

    Thanks, I wasn't really that dubious about it but it never hurts to check.

    From Slate, we have Joe Zamudio, a civilian with a gun who really did help subdue a dangerous killer - specifically, the man opening fire at Gabrielle Giffords. But not only was the killer already disarmed and Zamudio didn't use his gun:

    "I came out of that store, I clicked the safety off, and I was ready," he explained on Fox and Friends. "I had my hand on my gun. I had it in my jacket pocket here. And I came around the corner like this." Zamudio demonstrated how his shooting hand was wrapped around the weapon, poised to draw and fire. As he rounded the corner, he saw a man holding a gun. "And that's who I at first thought was the shooter," Zamudio recalled. "I told him to 'Drop it, drop it!' "

    But the man with the gun wasn't the shooter. He had wrested the gun away from the shooter. "Had you shot that guy, it would have been a big, fat mess," the interviewer pointed out.

    Zamudio agreed:

    "I was very lucky. Honestly, it was a matter of seconds. Two, maybe three seconds between when I came through the doorway and when I was laying on top of [the real shooter], holding him down. So, I mean, in that short amount of time I made a lot of really big decisions really fast. … I was really lucky."

    ...

    The Arizona Daily Star, based on its interview with Zamudio, adds two details to the story. First, upon seeing the man with the gun, Zamudio "grabbed his arm and shoved him into a wall" before realizing he wasn't the shooter. And second, one reason why Zamudio didn't pull out his own weapon was that "he didn't want to be confused as a second gunman."

    This is a much more dangerous picture than has generally been reported. Zamudio had released his safety and was poised to fire when he saw what he thought was the killer still holding his weapon. Zamudio had a split second to decide whether to shoot. He was sufficiently convinced of the killer's identity to shove the man into a wall. But Zamudio didn't use his gun. That's how close he came to killing an innocent man. He was, as he acknowledges, "very lucky."
    "We must fight on!"
    "We'll die. We fight and we die, that's how it goes."
    "Then we die gloriously!"
    "There's an important word there, and it's not gloriously."
