Iono, sounds like my kind of crocodile!
Good Guys With Guns
Good Guy Who Prints Guns
I think he meant these:
I'm very concerned if the elevator door opens and I see that. There is no freakin' GRAVITY in that elevator! No way am I going in there! Might reach in and grab one or two of the floating chocolate goodies though.
Spoiler !!! :
I mean, you'd be a fool not to, right?
Well, you know what they say, it's all chocolate and cream filling until someone gets pulled through an interdimensional portal into an eldritch realm of pure damnation
Where's @Snerk ?
In the Video, obviously.
More good guys with guns
If this hadn't been caught on tape, I bet these two would be lauded as having rid the world of some filthy criminal who tried to kill them
The propaganda is strong with you my son. Funny how you post every story that makes gun owners look bad, but won't post any of the stories that make them look good.
That's three good guys with guns compared to your one.
Well, stopping a robbery is nice and all, but how does it compare to a murder?
“That probably would have been much worse if there hadn’t been a customer in there armed.”
Sure...she saw employees and customers running out of the building crying and screaming, heavily armed SWAT officers making an assault style entry, in her own words "it was just a madhouse." It would no doubt have been so much worse if the pharmacy staff had just handed the robber a bottle of oxy and sent him quietly on his way. Thank goodness for a good guy with a gun opening fire in a crowded store.
Killing people over property crimes doesn't make them look good to me
Cause that's your job. That's just how a debate works. You have a narrative you're arguing, and you have to go find the stuff to support it, while the other "side" does the same. I don't see you posting many stories that make gun owners look bad, and I don't blame you for that or think you're committing some kind of foul for not doing so. That's just how a debate works.
So it doesn't make sense to dismiss an article @Lexicus posts about actual events as "propaganda" simply because they refute your narrative, then post your own articles as if they're somehow different, simply because they support your narrative. If his articles are "propaganda" to be dismissed out of hand, then that makes your articles the same thing, right?
Forensics drool, rhetoricians rule!
Scummers gotta scum amirite?
Well, you have to build society off of something sturdier than an ivory tower. So there's that.
I don't know. I'm kinda ambivalent(to the situation you were responding to) when "that's the best answer on the internet ever" doesn't even change the tone or use of the exact quote being challenged. I mean, if the side is decided and nothing can change it, it feels like work, and one gets compensated for work. Rhetoric can be personal growth, it's not bespoke. /toometa
