    or jmac.... or is it jp would mention heller v dc.....

    yep.... I just dont know why they didnt take a sharpie and just cross out the 2nd long ago when it became moot.... stick a fork in it....cause its been done a long time.....

    emails and blogs and anonymous high level reliable sources.....oh my...

    Have a nice day tomorrow hugh...and the rest of you... I stood over a shop vac all night...well most of it... and my back is ready to hit the bed.
    If the second amendment doesn't give you the right to "run around armed" why does it read "to keep and BEAR arms"

    As we discussed at the beginning of this thread, words are important, corny. They have meanings.

    http://oxforddictionaries.com/definition/english/bear

    Given that the primary definition in the Oxford dictionary it "to carry" I think that you've simply chosen to ignore the meaning of that word to suit whatever chit you're trying to stir this week.

    See. I refuted you without having to refer to DC vs Heller. It isn't that hard, really.

    Is it because you need the quick acceleration in case a shooting breaks out?

    nnaaa, like I said, I sold it. After 37 years for riding, it turns out there are far more crazy people in cars than with guns, by 1000 to 1.

    I am 100 times more worried about driving down the street than getting mugged.

    Comparing apples to oranges again? There are many more drivers in America than there are gun owners.

    Not to mention most cars are driven every day....most guns collect dust every day.

    Thanx for making my point. Actually there is an estimated 310 million firearms in America. 280 million households have at least one firearm.

    so it is virtually apples to apples. I'll be much more inclined to trust a Law abiding firearms owner driving a car, than your kid driving around texting and yapping on their cell phone.

    You see, Firearms owners are far more likely to follow ALL laws than the average citizen.

    People with concealed carry permits are:
    • 5.7 times less likely to be arrested for violent offenses than the general public
    • 13.5 times less likely to be arrested for non-violent offenses than the general public

    An Analysis of the Arrest Rate of Texas Concealed Carry Handgun License Holders as Compared to the Arrest Rate of the Entire Texas Population, William E. Sturdevant,

    Of 14,000 CCW licensees in Oregon, only 4 (0.03%) were convicted of the criminal (not necessarily violent) use or possession of a firearm.

    I think your math is off Jmac....or maybe it was a typo.

    oddly, I don't really care what you think,

    My numbers could be dead on and it won't make any difference to you.

    People like you and Pelosi, Feinstein, Schumer can't even figure out the difference between an assault rifle and a semi-automatic rifle, so why even argue to the point

    All we can do is keep reiterating the differences and hope someday it will sink in. I have a feeling that Hades will be a block of ice before that happens

    There may be more cars on the road in the morning but only the cars around you can hurt you…and cars are around you most of the day.

    I would bet that gun deaths have worse stats (ratios) than car deaths, seeing that we are exposed to cars all day every day but guns very infrequently.

    We are exposed to millions of cars in a year but only hundreds of CCW and criminally carried guns a year (in CA). But are there hundreds of thousands more car deaths than gun deaths in CA? I doubt it.

    It does make a difference to me....there aren't even 280 million households in America.

    I dunno if you blindly copy and paste the first stats you find that agree with your ideals or what.

    They are not necessarily crazy. They just aren’t consciously or unconsciously looking out for street bikes or bicycles. At night they are looking out for two headlights, not one.

    I’m a speed demon on a road bike, dirt bike, street bike, snow skis or sports cars. Me and semi-conscious motorists don’t mix well. I’ve also downsized to no motor, carbon fiber, less than 30mph on the shoulder of the road. My heart likes it too. Now if I can just keep those texters from plowing me from behind.

    lets see, From the CDC (Center for Disease Control) in 2011 all unintentional injury deaths was 120,859. Deaths per 100,000--- 39.1

    Motor Vehicle traffic Deaths, 33,687. Death per 100,000: 10.9

    All homicide deaths, 16,259. Deaths per 100,000: 5.3

    Firearm deaths, 11,078. Deaths per 100,000: 3.6


    ut-oooh, there goes that theory

    again, you make my point. Law abiding citizens WITH firearms are not nearly as reckless as people in cars
