    Where did I say people on the forum lived in the ghetto?

    The post I was referring to (and i'm giving it too much credit by talking about it) the person said he didn't respect anyone that had a gun for self defense purposes, and then made overtures about their common sense.

    In my opinion, that is ridiculous, and shows a privileged and somewhat sheltered upbringing. There are no questions about a percentage of our population that do need firearms for protection, just because I probably do not, doesn't mean everyone does not.

    You said people sleep in their bathtubs in fear of drive-byes. My point was that those folks aren't here on FH and since the poll in this thread was for members on this site, I don't see the point in bringing up people in Watts or Detroit. If it's so dangerous where one lives that they have to own guns to give them the best chance to survive, that's a different situation than someone in a decent neighborhood who feels the need to protect themselves just in case.

    So you are for banning ALL guns?

    What are you, 10 years old?

    Awsi doesn't post much in the PoFo. I was talking about his posts forum wide, where he is indisputably well respected. If he posted more he'd be a perennial favorite for Poster of the Year, imo. You can disagree with him all you want (nice strawman there accusing me of saying he couldn't be criticized), but saying the majority of people don't take him seriously is simply the wrong avenue of attack.

    He didn't say everyone who owns a gun is an idiot. He said that he doesn't respect people who own guns for self defense (which he specifically isolated rather than painting all gun ownership with the same brush) because the math says that's a self defeating, mathematically ignorant decision. He's a gambler and his whole life is built around probabilities, so he takes that stuff, you know, seriously.

    As for myself, I agree that it's an unwise decision. I don't feel as strongly about it as him but the math speaks for itself.

    No. I honestly don't know what the solution is. I don't think arming everyone is the solution either. I've heard some say that if the principal was armed, she would've stopped him. What happens when staff gets armed and they still get murdered b/c the guy has guns that are bigger and better?

    The majority of posters on this thread either own guns, or respect the right to own a gun. I can conclude that such an extreme view such as the guy with the delicious smelling farts, would not be respected in this forum.

    Nobody is arguing that, you were sticking up for a poster that wants the ban on all guns, which you admitedly don't agree with. Not sure why you got involved.

    So not agreeing = not respecting?
