Drudge Retort: The Other Side of the News
Thursday, February 01, 2018

We are always told that we need the right to bear arms to defend ourselves. Who is attacking that one would need an AR-15 with a scope IN THEIR CAR? Isn't the purpose of a scope to aid aiming at long range? Who is attacking your car from far enough away that you need a scope?

I have my scoped AR-10 platform in my car, on days when I'm going to the range. Reason for scope is for target shooting from 100 to 300 yards.

No, you were told that one of the reasons that we maintain the right to bear arms is to defend ourselves.

That doesn't appear to be a scope, it looks exactly like a zero magnification red dot sight. Those are very, very common.

Liberals,

In a free society, you dont get to ask why I need something, else, I get to ask why you need an abortion..

But Boaz, you want the cops to ask to see brown people's papers.

So now you're okay with asking questions.
Glad we cleared that up.
Have a nice day.

So how about we compromise and ask anyone carrying a gun to prove that they are US citizen, and anyone NOT carrying a gun to prove that they are a US citizen.
Take the guns from those not allowed to own them, and prosecute if laws were broken. Remove the people not allowed to be here, and prosecute if laws were broken.
Win-win?

"Not to verified citizens..."

The only way to verify is... having the little piggies ask "Papers, Please."
Just to be crystal clear, you do support that, right Boaz?

"So how about we compromise and ask anyone carrying a gun to prove that they are US citizen."

Sarcasm aside, the Second Amendment applies to everyone under American jurisdiction, not just citizens.
I only make this comment to point out how right-wingers have citizenship on the brain, like they are from the movie Starship Troopers and want the country to be divided into Citizens with Full Rights and second-class people with fewer rights.

At least Private Boaz finally admits he holds a double standard for liberals.

Which is why you will note the 2nd sentence which did not state that people unable to prove their citizenship would be relieved of their guns, but that those 'allowed to own them' would. I only make this comment to point out how you continually project your biases against what you think right-wingers are onto people that neither espouse those beliefs nor behave in the way you caricature them.

You said "remove the people not allowed to be here."
You also said you'd be asking two groups of people to prove their citizenship; those carrying guns and those not carrying guns.
Are we not supposed to notice that adds up to everybody?

I'll pencil you in for a "Yes" (correct me if I'm wrong!) on having the little piggies ask "Papers, Please."
We're up to two now, where's Sniper and Crassus?

Yeah. We should make them wear an armband with a yellow symbol of some sort on it, right?

For somebody who's so into Murica you seem to know dick about America.

That's rich coming from a cut-and-paste artist such as yourself. That is less a hack job and more an abbreviation: Bozo believes his pet issues are above question while liberal issues warrant interrogation. Sounds like a double standard to me.

Now, crawl back into whatever paleocon law blog cesspool spawned you, you sanctimonious hack. Come back once you've evolved a little self awareness.

F*ck you dirk.

I almost hope that we do have a Islamic revolution here in the U.S. so liberals like you can get what you deserve.

History is very kind to those like me, Patriotic, country above self, willing to die for it, security first, keep out threats no matter how Politically correct.

History is replete with examples like you, at least we have examples of how YOU will turn out..

People like me defend people like you and I know that burns your skin..

You live in a fantasy land. Sad that you haven't a clue what you are talking about as per the usual.

#20 I'm sure Corporal Adolf had similar rationalizations.

Oddly enough he is our best example of what happens when we sink to the level of forcing "undesirables" to be publicly identifiable.

The "scope" looks like a tiny AT-4 antitank launcher. Watch out for backblast.

Why? You obviously think people like us are lower than dirt.

I mean, how do you find job satisfaction in your life???

Maybe you don't, and that's why you're so cranky all the time!

When do you use a scope for self defense?
Easy, when the target is orange.

No Snoofy. Checking for citizenship should be done AFTER someone is arrested for a crime. If they are here illegally, they should be dealt with appropriately, not released.

Snoofy what you might not be able to understand is that the police can only do certain things AFTER a crime is committed. Those things found would be secondary violations of the law.

In many states, the police cannot stop you for a seat belt violation or a broken tail light. There has to be a primary violation like speeding.
