And yes, I think that way way too many people are granted C&C licenses, I would see them severely limited, yes. So I'm not sure if you are questioning me about a type of gun or about C&C'ing licenses or about pacifists. Sorry If my answer isn't clear I am confused by your question. I have [I]never ever[/I] argued that a person ought NOT TO be able to have a handgun (I've been specific about what type and how many bullets they should be able to shoot)for protection in their home.
    Duh? Nice.

    Duh? Nice

    You said one thing in this debate and then said you have never, ever said that. Conflicting versions. I do not want to make an assumption about what you really believe, as you have asked for people not to make assumptions about you

    I apologize, and you are right, in picking out one sentence without context I can see how you can perhaps say that. I have never ever argued that we actually ban all handguns, or that we amend our constitution to do so. Ever. I apologize for the duh, but I felt frustrated that you could actually have been reading my posts all along, pluck one statement entirely out of context, and argue that it is my "position". It isn't and has never been, and I feel as though you would know that, but I know that lots of people participate in these debates do maybe you honestly didn't mean to reduce and misrepresent my position, so forgive my frustration.

    It might be like you saying "I WANT every school to have prayer in it!" because of course, as a Christian you would (and should!) probably want that, but, perhaps, as an American, you value separation of Church and State. So while you may want every public school to have prayer because you personally value prayer, you maybe would not actually vote for that because you value the constitution more. If I took one sentence saying "Prayer WOULD be good in the schools!" but ignored the hundreds saying "But I value our constitution more" that would be falsely representing your position. It wouldn't be some big A-HA on my part. Do you see what I am saying? For any of you reading along Lisa said NONE Of this stuff ever I'm just trying to draw a plausable analogy along constitutional lines.

    In my heart of COURSE I want no guns at all. However, I believe in our right to bear arms, and I don't want to take this thing so far as to take away our constitutional right to do so. I just want to find a sane, safe way to have both sides "win" on this. I want us to have smaller, saner arms. The kind which actually protect us from the big bad robbers but don't let us play soldier in schools. I've tried to be rational like that, but also admit the reality of my hearts wish. Of course the little girl in me wants no guns at all. What Mom wouldn't want that on some imaginary utopian level? (Except for an anti pacifist, of course) I also want unicorn to exist. Shoot me (ha. Get it?).

    Tried to respond to this last night, could not get it to work.

    Duh? Nice. I pointed out an inconsistency in what you said. I was not assuming that I know what you meant, you ask for people to not assume they know what you are saying on a regular basis.

    Confused, did you not see my long post above this post? I replied quite clearly why there is no inconsistency, simply a misunderstanding on your part, which I tried to clear up. Is that post not showing up for you? I see it? It's long, I wrote it early this am.

    I'm only replying because I can't see Bonita's post. It says she posted, but I sure can't see it.
