So you can't even accept reality when you have photographic evidence right in front of you. Why am I not surprised.

Conservatives consistently reject reality.

Yeah, but what does Pinkie need his penis for? He probably uses his appendix more.

Thank you for your sincere concern. However, I keep any and all guns tucked inside my waistband within a holster with the trigger well protected from discharging a bullet accidentally. Also, with the exception of my .380, I'll only keep a round chambered when I compete, or when my Spidey sense is tingling.

So, though I am flattered, you can ease your pretty little mind and stop thinking about my larger than average and oft tumescent appendage.

How do you define "gun culture"?

See "Gun Porn" thread...

Now, I'm sure that makes no sense to you, since you have no desire to understand anything other than your own point of view.


EDIT - After some thought, I realize that the "Gun Porn" thread is more likely to be appreciated by a "Gun Nut"... A much more zealous and extreme product of a "Gun Culture".

I see that patience is not your strong suit.

However, for the record, I'm in complete accord with BOs edict to make background checks mandatory even for private sales. Although, that'll do little to deter criminals from acting like criminals.

I am exceedingly patient and that is tinged with a petty sense of vengeance. Your continued lack of contribution is not unsurprising.

Unless there is some evidence of an original thought on how to reduce gun violence I will assume that you are only capable of parroting others thoughts and that until Fox News Corp blesses a message of how to reduce gun control you won't reply.

IŽll contribute an idea, then: make mental health a national priority.

Remove the stigma attached to seeking psychological and psychiatric help. Make said help more readily available, while keep the pharmaceutical industry out of it (as much as possible). Shift the focus on domestic violence from the current criminal-law-centric view to a therapeutic, rehabilitative vision.

And, of course, de-glorify reckless use of firearms, violence and a criminal lifestyle in the media.

Sounds good, but even if you remove the stigma, you have to deal with insurance realities. I am lucky to have pretty good insurance, as far as insurance policies in the US go. It covers a lot of things, Physical Therapy, Mental health, etc.

BUT there are 30 PT visits per year, yet only 20 Mental Health. And there is a lifetime limit on Mental health, but not on PT.

Yet, unlike PT that we only need occasionally, when we get injured, Mental Health issues are usually something that is not going to be "cured", with pharmaceuticals, or without. It needs lifetime of support.

Add to it the fact that most people with mental health issues are probably not going to hold a kind of job that i have, that provides good insurance. And add to it the fact that even for someone like me, who is not exactly counting every penny, the co-pays for medical visits can add up quite quickly, and the MH co-pays are higher than regular doctor visits.

Add to it the tangle of personal freedom and right to privacy, vs. trying to get treatment for someone who doesn't want to get treated... (have you ever tried? I had tried to get help for a friend several years ago. It is impossible!)

And what you get is that adequate medical support for Mental Health issues is pretty much impossible for anyone with severe long-term issues under current healthcare system.

Reform that? Sure, I'm all for it... not going it happen.

It has to happen--and I think it has to happen through outside-the-box solutions. The health care system in this country, it has been noted, is less than ideal. For that reason, I think mental health has to be located outside of this system. There need to be high-quality, low-cost, local mental health clinics. These can be paid for by an increase in local state or locality taxes. I personally hate state income tax, but if we need to have it to pay for these life-and-death services, then I think state budgets need to really look at that option.

Just predictable... It's been his MO his entire time on this site... For years now.

'Tis his nature to have strong views that he cannot reasonable articulate when pressed. Just quips often mined from other blowhards.
