Ultimate gun nuttery

August 8, 2014 - Harry Eagar
Readers outside Hawaii may or may not be aware that 2 tropical storms are heading our way (one has already passed without much impact). So people have been getting ready. Some fill water jugs and buy batteries. And some . . .

"I have now seen five posts about people stocking up on ammunition for the hurricanes.

"I'm gonna plant my big opinionated flag here:

"If you are preparing to shoot, maim, or intimidate people who may find themselves in trouble or lacking supplies instead of trying to figure out ways you can help (even a little) your neighbors and fellow islanders - you are doing it wrong.

"No not storm prep. You are doing life wrong."

That's a Facebook post by my younger daughter who lives on Oahu.

I think she needs to get better quality friends, but I also think we need to confiscate all the guns. Because there is no way to tell who can be trusted to have one.

"I see that OneAikea the coward is still afraid to show his face in public. I would be too if I were that stupid." bkaahui

I must be a kettle being called by the pot. By A libertarian.

Marine Sgt. Andrew Tahmooressi are murky, one thing is clear: If he did not cross Mexico borders with guns, he would not be in jail. Andrew, who was diagnosed in March with post-traumatic stress disorder.

I am not the one in any Jail. Not with PTSD. Not the stupid one.

No, it wouldn't have occurred to her because you are talking nonsense.

These people are clearly dangerous and need to be disarmed. They are psychotic -- defined as seeing things that are not there.

Not running for or from public office. NO reason for me to be public. Not in this for popularity or votes.

MauiWarriorFan commented: "You meant Green and White right? This is HAWAII - your readers are from - HAWAII. Go back to Oregon and write about oregon football there.’’

"If you really think what you wrote - then you are an idiot." MauiWarriorFan

If you think, therefore you are. Right MauiWarriorFan. You are if you can really think what you just said.

MauiWarriorFan, what you read are in quotes. Not my comments. Seems guns do make many bolder. I use a pen and find it mightier than the sword, but agains I can use both.

Also pot calling the kettle black? Calling another an idiot only reflects on your being experienced in idiocy. Right MauiWarriorFan?

Pot calling the kettle black? Calling someone stupid, especially from a genious.

Ad Hominem. "Abusive Abusive ad hominem usually involves attacking the traits of an opponent as a means to invalidate their arguments. Equating someone's character with the soundness of their argument is a logical fallacy. Mere verbal abuse in the absence of an argument, however, is not ad hominem nor any kind of logical fallacy.[8] Ad hominem abuse is not to be confused with slander or libel, which employ falsehoods and are not necessarily leveled to undermine otherwise sound stands with character attacks."

OA - Guns make people think they are ten times bigger then they are. If you really think what you wrote - then you are an idiot.

Did it not occur to your daughter that they are in fact protecting their families from the well-documented phenomenon of widespread looting, violence, and general lawlessness that sometimes accompanies any natural disaster?

I see people on Maui, filling their car's gas tanks. "Guns are responsible for these deaths in the same way that cars are responsible for accidents."

"Why aren't we protesting about background checks for propane purchases? Why should convicted felons be allowed to cook for their families using propane? It is too dangerous!

I want to feel safe! I want to be secure! I want the government to protect me from imaginary threats! Ban propane!"

Vote Libertarian. Laugh on Laughable
