Comment Archives: Stories: News+Opinion: Stegelin's Cartoons

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

Nothing educational or remotely thought provoking about this piece. It's the same old wash-rinse-repeat from the corporate news cycle. No original thought behind it at all. I've seen the exact same meme played out in hundreds of thousands of internet posts by various artists. Meh.

No idea why people feel the need to keep debating this topic, it's been settled already.

"Ron,have you ever considered that if a revolution takes place that a lot of the military may possibly on the side of the revolutionaries?"

They why do you need guns?

Come on, people. This debate is as stupid now as it has always been and has nothing to do with gun ownership. It has to do with fetishists.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

Trollslayer, obviously you don't know whether I have a "popgun" or a cabinet full of semi-automatic assault rifles that can be converted to automatic in a matter of minutes. Obviously you have never heard of some lieutenants that never came back from Nam due to "friendly fire". And obviously you are not familiar with "military coups" or military overthrows of governments. This is where the people get the military on their side because, after all, the military are citizens, also, and get fed up with over blown governments. And obviously, there will never be gun control In America as the liberals want.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

Yeah, Showmoor, you go up against even the police with your little popgun, never mind the actual military.
Good luck with that.
The countries of Belgium and France couldn't stand up to the Wehrmacht, doubt if the poor Jews would have had any chance.
"They are not government robots that will follow blindly, by thinking that you degrade most of our military"
Obviously, you have never been in the military, or you would know that you follow orders or find yourself on the other end of the gun.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

Ron,have you ever considered that if a revolution takes place that a lot of the military may possibly on the side of the revolutionaries? They are not government robots that will follow blindly, by thinking that you degrade most of our military. Trollslayer, how do you know that guns wouldn't have done any good? No debate from you, just pithy remarks. So to paraphrase trollslayer: Gun control,; won't do any good.I LIKE that debate!!! Keeps it real simple and without any fact.

Bee Tee Dubs, if the revolution ever occurs, these people are going to be your leaders. Good luck!

I especially like the last one. He doesn't even have enough balls to cross the police tape, but yet he is going to take on the whole government.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

"he 2nd Amendment absolutely exists so that the people act as guarantors of their own liberty...but we're nowhere near a revolution."

So if we should ever find ourselves at the point of revolution, do you honestly believe private citizens stand a chance against an incredibly bloated military that will use any excuse to justify its expensive existence?

Authoritarians masquerading as libertarians have consistently supported the expansion of the military and domestic interdiction programs no matter the cost, but ironically feel like they are prepared to take them head on should the situation arise. I find it quite comical.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

As you can see, Ron totally skipped answering my questions concerning gun control. He is obviously for it but has no idea how to do it. He hasn't thought that far. Too busy repeating what the liberal media tell him.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

"So why do people like...Cid constantly complain about the government being tyrannical?"

Ron's arguments often involve stating what other people said, though they actually didn't say it. It's ok, though, because he knows what's "code" for what he wants people to say. Leftists are great at that.

The 2nd Amendment absolutely exists so that the people act as guarantors of their own liberty. That is indisputable, but for those that had any doubt it was settled in the SCOTUS Heller decision in 2008. We are not, at present, living under a tyrannical government. Our government has assumed a greater role in our lives than at any other time in US history, but we're nowhere near a revolution. If we ever get there, I'll let Ron know so he can get to Ottawa, or more likely Tijuana, ASAP.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

Liberace, your argument is with a very small but vocal minority. Most owners of firearms are neither scared or delusional. Most owners are very respectful of any weapon and are fine contributing members of our society. They are not racists, do want gun control and abhor gun violence.
My father, who passed away at a young age, was a member of the NRA from his youth. He was an award winning amateur marksman and state champion in his home state. He was an avid outdoorsman. He was a hunter with several interests including black powder and bow hunting. He was also a gunsmith. He taught my family the proper respect for firearms. We had a locked gun cabinet in all of our homes growing up. He had each of us attend the NRA youth instructional safety courses before we were even allowed to touch a BB gun. He kept our BB guns and
pellet rifles in the cabinet too. No one was allowed access to any weapons in our home without his supervision. This is a just a simple example of one man and his family. The majority of firearm owners in our country are made of men and women such as my father.
Unfortunately, many owners realize there are people like you. You have no interest in firearms or the outdoors and you can't even understand why anyone would. They feel as if ,given an inch your going to go for a mile.
You hide behind the name calling and such just because you see no reason for firearms.
Just come out and say what you think... we all know what it is you sincerely want. Until i see you truly come forward and say what you believe i will continue to call you

...the real coward.

"Citizens with Guns keeps the Government from trying to really becoming Tyrants. "

So why do people like you and Cid constantly complain about the government being tyrannical? Sounds like you've failed your mission.

I'd really love to see how you redneck lunatics would truly behave if the government, with their unparalleled military power, started coming after your weapons. I'm sure in your minds you'd really stick it to 'em.

Just like if you get jumped and mugged on the street you are going to have enough time to flawlessly draw your weapon and dispatch your attacker. Scared and delusional - the perfect type of person to own guns.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

Ron Liberte, with racists like this advocating violence you may want to re-think that statement. Oh, that's right, you don't believe that blacks can be racist. Hmm

http://stop-hate-crimes.com/2015/09/01/lou…
Also, since you are for gun control, can you tell me how you propose to get the guns that criminals have? And shouldn't we disarm our police force and the military, also? After all, they have been known to kill people.

I'm not the one who is so scared of the world around me that I feel the need to arm myself to walk to my mailbox or go to the store.

Re: “Stegelin: Whither gun control?

Yes, indeed it's time. It's time for the leftists to start their movement to repeal the 2nd Amendment. They are big gun supporters, as long as the guns are in the hands of police and the military ONLY. You know, like in that movie, Schindler's List.
