1. Maybe it's not my place to speak, but I think we more often blame the gun because unlike cars, which are designed as transportation devices, guns are designed specifically as weapons. I mean, sure, anything could be used as a weapon, but not everything is designed as one. Unfortunately, even if a gun registry/licensing program starts, there are too many proud people who already own weapons and would be unwilling tor register them for the system to work, because if everyone who should own a gun had it registered the people who shouldn't own guns wouldn't need them for "self defense". # #

    1. @northernnarwhal Huh?

      1. @pony Never mind, just a long winded rant that's kind of late to the conversation.

        1. @northernnarwhal Okidoke.

          1. @pony It's just my opinion anyway, and both sides of the discussion have valid points.

            Sunday, 25-May-14 19:34:28 UTC from web
            1. @northernnarwhal Just one side has a gun

              1. @vcgriffin That doesn't sound very comforting.

            2. @northernnarwhal I hold no harsh feelings toward those who disagree with me. I do get concerned sometimes, but people have to be left to make their own decisions about whether to really research an issue, not be convinced by me.

              1. @pony I think important to note that someone can disagree with you and still be an intelligent free thinking individual. There are just too many topics that can't be trivialized with a binary "right" and "wrong" answer.

                1. @northernnarwhal I think you saw what I did there.

                  Sunday, 25-May-14 19:41:30 UTC from web
                  1. @pony I think so, you might have made a reference that I missed.

                    1. @northernnarwhal Nah. I was just being.. what's the word? Subtly arrogant?

                      Sunday, 25-May-14 19:44:17 UTC from web
                    2. @northernnarwhal Meant in a joking way as always, yet at the same time completely serious.

                      Sunday, 25-May-14 19:44:57 UTC from web
                      1. @pony I think I caught on that. I was being me: serious but shouldn't be taken seriously

                        Sunday, 25-May-14 19:46:16 UTC from web
                        1. @northernnarwhal It's a good way to be.

                      2. The way that's supposed to make you punch my shoulder and say "Shut up Pony, you knucklehead. You know, you're alright. How 'bout some cider?" And I'd be all like, "Yeah bro!"

                        Sunday, 25-May-14 19:47:01 UTC from web
    2. @northernnarwhal That's depressing. Open up a MLP chat website and BAM! Talking about guns

      1. @nightshade142 As you spend more time here you'll find we're always talking about weird and assorted topics here. It's almost becoming sort of a running gag among regular users here to say "oh, this is a pony website?".

        Sunday, 25-May-14 19:33:10 UTC from web
        1. @northernnarwhal What's a pony?

          Sunday, 25-May-14 19:34:04 UTC from web
          1. @lunanut I think it's a foreign thing.

            Sunday, 25-May-14 19:35:35 UTC from web
            1. @northernnarwhal AHA! No wonder I never heard that word before

              Sunday, 25-May-14 19:36:14 UTC from web
        2. @northernnarwhal Wait, wait -- pony website? Where do I go for Bill Murray? I knew I shoulda took that left turn at Albuquerque. . . .

          Sunday, 25-May-14 19:34:24 UTC from web
          1. @scribus There's a bit of Bill Murray in us all.

            Sunday, 25-May-14 19:35:09 UTC from web
      2. @nightshade142 There used to be many more interesting topics discussed that affected real life, but reality doesn't seem to be your current interest.

        So who's your favorite pony?
