From a comment on that YouTube page:

Even though I can see where she is coming from, it doesn't give her the right to try to limit my options for self protection.

I always find this type of response interesting. Technically, if a person is attempting to enact a ban on guns because that person feels the ban will make them safer, aren't they themselves exercising their right to self-protection? That is, they have just as much "right" to attempt to get guns banned as someone else has the "right" to carry a legal firearm.

After all, those who claim guns are proper in the home for self-protection often ignore the studies that show more injuries in the home as a result of those guns, so this is as much an emotional issue as a logical one; so the position of "I want to reduce the overall number of guns in circulation by making gun ownership illegal" doesn't seem an unreasonable attempt at self-defense, even if it might be a flawed position (I don't know whether gun bans have been shown to effectively reduce the number of guns in circulation.)

The point is, because the legislator signed a bill that would limit barrel shrouds without knowing what they were, barrel shrouds are a good thing. Presumably because they enable riflemen to kill people without disturbing neighbors.

for his next trick, snoktruix will give us a single-image fark post making fun of Barbara Boxer's hair.

snoktruix, i think someone switched your MeFi bookmark for your fark bookmark. Please check and repair accordingly.

I'm trying to think of some good snarky comment to put in this thread before the admins yank it.

Any suggestions?
