Well, you shouldn't. How about killing eight young women with a knife? Yes, eight young women (nurses). Not fake news! Curious? Check for yourself.


Yep. Actually happened. Terror is an interesting thing.  So, your argument is that every person (woman?) in the world is stupid enough or scared enough not to fight back?  I know a few that would disagree with you. 

 

If a guy threatened your family with a knife, would you be able to fight back?

If I suggested you could replace a guy with a bulldozer with a guy with a shovel on a construction site, you would call me crazy.  The same situation is true for expecting the same level of mayhem from a veteran with a hammer as from a veteran with a firearm.

 

Absolutely correct, Richva.  Some can't see the forrest for the tree's....

Freud right?? At the risk of plagiarising someone on the forums frequent and annoying- LMAO. I'm LMAO.

Hardly an expert today, willing to give Freud's theories any credit. If you read the article you posted, you'll see for yourself.

I've never heard of a gun going out on it's own and shooting people.


You've also never heard of a mentally ill OR menatlly healthy person without a gun "shooting people".


True, but we've heard of mentally ill OR menatlly {Sic} healthy persons bashing heads with a baseball bat, hammers, rocks,(more people killed by hammers, clubs and rocks each year than by rifles) etc.. We've also heard of same, whacking people to death with chain saws, crashing cars into individuals, lacing food or drink with arsenic, cyanide or the like. Mentally healthy, as well as mentally un-healthy individuals will find all kinds of ways to achieve their evil goals.

The usual from someone who is in denial.  Why would I suggest it then?

"nc" it's obvious where the confusion lies.  Only one poster here has gone from personally attacking almost every Conservative poster to personally attacking almost every Liberal and Independent poster.  And to add to the "confusion", he's gone from supporting Obama, to Bernie Sanders and when Hillary received the nomination, he jumped to Stein.  Obviously, "very confused".  Attack Liberals yet support the most Liberal candidate in years???  Actually, it's quite telling.


Still prefer to attack another poster rather than sticking to civilly discussing issues?  I bet that makes you feel important doesn't it?  Is there a psychological reason for doing so?

True, but we've heard of mentally ill OR menatlly {Sic} (lol) healthy persons bashing heads with a baseball bat, hammers, rocks,(more people killed by hammers, clubs and rocks each year than by rifles) etc.. What?  Hardly.  Got any proof to back that up?  We've also heard of same (sic), whacking people to death with chain saws, crashing cars into individuals, lacing food or drink with arsenic, cyanide or the like.  You've heard or dreamt?  Mentally healthy, as well as mentally un-healthy individuals will find all kinds of ways to achieve their evil goals. Goals?  Does that include taking healthcare away from those who can't afford it?

Of course you keep bringing up a candidate who I considered in the last elections.  But she has no bearing on these discusions.  Your continued bringing her into the discussion is completely off-topic and without merit.  Besides I'm not like the liberal element here who blindly follows the doctrine of the hierarchy.

Is there some sort of problem discussing the issues instead of posters?  Perhaps AARP should just create a gossip forum for those who like to do that?
