Florida man's gun collection makes liberals cry

When I first read the title, I was expecting (and hoping) that this guy had a 1000+ gun collection. Turns out it's just a fishing expedition to attract the anti-gun nutters:

Quote:
“Does the average American need an automatic weapon that can spurt out hundreds of bullets in a second? No,” said Marcus Weaver, one of the moviegoers wounded in Colorado."

“How much ammo should someone be able to purchase in a 12-month span?” Weaver said."

I love when someone with zero gun knowledge or experience wants to know how much ammunition I "should be able" to purchase. I tell them 500 rounds x 3 times a week is 1500 rounds x 4 is 6000 x 12 months. 72,000 rounds a year. I am not a criminal. It is my money & my hobby.

Don't know if you guys read the whole article, but down low on the page, somebody finally made the idiotic argument I've been waiting forever to see an anti-gunner to say out loud:


Quote:
"But Brad Bushman, a communications and psychology professor at Ohio State University, said @Gun_Collector’s popularity is troubling because, “the mere presence of weapons can increase aggression.”

Bushman wrote about the “weapons effect” for Psychology Today earlier this year. He began the article with a quote from noted social psychologist Leonard Berkowitz: “Guns not only permit violence, they can stimulate it as well. The finger pulls the trigger, but the trigger may also be pulling the finger.”
Don't know whether to or

If that doesn't sum-up the fundamental stupidity of all their arguments, I am at a loss to say what does. Does anyone on the forum attend or have a kid attending OSU? I'd really like to know if this guy is spouting this garbage at impressionable young adults in a State Funded classroom.

I thought pulling the finger only resulted it a phart.

Inanimate objects exhibit mind control. That is what it would take for a trigger to pull a finger.

Where can I get the gun listed below and where can I get a 2nd job so I can afford it?

Mr. Weaver, the AVERAGE American doesn't have an automatic weapon. Or a Ferrari. Or a Rolex, for that matter. They simply can't afford them. Should we demonize those who can? I mean, after the AVERAGE American pays $6-$10,000 for the gun, the $200 federal tax on automatic weapons, and the complete federal background check involved, how many of them do you really see going berserk and shooting up anything except old cars, computers, bowling pins, etc? Damn fewer than drive home drunk from the bar every day of the year, I can tell you that!

Sadly, Mr Weaver (and OkSlim), this is one of the many constitutionally protected items which I (a law-abiding gun owner) am not allowed to purchase. Like I'm really gonna mug somebody with it?

Funny, when I was a kid, my dad would extend his trigger finger out and tell me to pull it. Even before I pulled it, I knew he was going to unleash a weapon of mass destruction that would make our eyes water until someone opened the windows.

Who knew?

Nobody on this Earth needs that many guns. Instead he should be sharing them with the rest of us.



Seriously, as long as they're all kept inside strong safes and his home has a decent security system then more (fire)power to him.

Avoid the temptation to replace everything on your brand-new 1911 just to make it "better". Know what you're changing out and why. You may spend a lot of money fixing things that weren't broken to begin with. Shoot at least 500 rounds through it first, then decide what you don't like and want to improve. Regarding vintage 1911s, pre-1970 pistols are highly collectible in original, unaltered condition and should NEVER be refinished or modified as it completely ruins their monetary value.

He is an enabler to all of us addicted to purchasing guns.

He as also reminded me of the fact that I don't have enough .30 caliber battle rifles.

I wish I was you right now. Your tax dollars are paying this guy (to desiminate his ideas to your kids) You have a fully legit, taxpayer gripe. Let me know how they respond. If any of your State rep's are on board, let me know which one's, in case they ever run for national office.

From the article

"But Brad Bushman, a communications and psychology professor at Ohio State University, said @Gun_Collector’s popularity is troubling because, “the mere presence of weapons can increase aggression."

Seriously? How many bad words can I say about this guy before I get in trouble with the mods? Me, I tend to feel more comfortable with a weapon close by.
