Morality is not determined by the church you attend nor the faith you embrace. It is determined by the quality of your character and the positive impact you have on those you meet along your journey
I've been seeing posts on Facebook saying they WILL allow guns...so I imagined the media reporting on the aftermath as:SHOOT OUT AT THE NO KAY CORRAL
I fantasize about that on a regular basis but I'm not very good about keeping it secret. I probably should work on that in light of the fact that I'm a lifelong Texan and one of maybe four people in the entire state who has no desire at all to get a CHL.
I can see it now. Trump isn't nominated and there IS a riot - with a whole lot of firearms around the place. The paramedics will be overwhelmed and the police would just have to seal the place and only allow exit after people are "patted down". And then the entire "incident" will be blamed on Muslim fanatics engaging in Jihad.
Oh my stars, I would NEVER think of such a dreadful thing like that happening to those God fearing, family values paragons of Christianity. Wink, wink, cough, cough, uncrossing my fingers now.
No. I have fantasies where they all turn on each other. Sick, I know!
You can count me in on that thought. Shit has hit the fan and the entire gop is wearing it. More popcorn!
Trump has already put the message out there, if he doesn't get the nomination there will be riots and his supporters would kill for him. I image this would include the convention, at least they will be knocking off "other good guys" with guns. They are so big on second amendment rights, why don't they allow guns in the convention, I mean what could possible go wrong? These are all sober, responsible gun owners with no angry problems.They are going to destroy the the GOP one way or another , why not a shoot out and besides some of those Mooslim, ISIS guys might try and sneak in.
Twisted, but so entertaining!!
Heh heh. I mean----oh no, don't let stupid bedwetters with weapons knock each other off in Cleveland. I might want to go downtown for dinner and that might ruin my meal. Allegedly.
Conservatives' hold tight to their "convictions" right up until it adversely affects them.
That's because their "convictions" are for everyone else. Not themselves. That is the definition of Fascism. Democracy for the elites. Everyone else lives in a totalitarian state.
Yes, it's your twisted imagination ... but I've always liked a twisted imagination.
I say just arm the females. Let all the wives and mistressess have at each other! Fighting over the "waste of space" males that are SO family values oriented. They have voted to allow guns in schols, churches so why not where a group of holier than thou cretins are gathered? Raphael Ted Cruz looks as though he WAS shot in the face at some time.
I respectfully disagree, Ted's looks would be improved if only he were shot in the face.
ALL the little dick boys going "on stage" are scared shittless! I mean they will fill those depends! Some one will shoot!
The far-right republicans are so immature, just like 12 year olds and they shouldn't be allowed to bring their pee-shooters to the party.
I think they should put their money where their big fat mouths are and allow guns! Guns for everybody!
Guns are for cowards: it's knives they should have to carry.
I see the blog article posted immediately after this describes the surge in carry permits for Texans.This will not end well. Or, depending on you point of view, it may end VERY WELL!!
I'd like to know why those GOP cowards don't hold their no guns allowed convention in Texas! Let them put their guns where their mouths are. Please.
A Donald Trump riot + GUNS will give a whole new meaning to the term "DONALD DUCK"I wonder if the republican candidates who spew out the call for 2nd amendment rights will be giving their speeches at the convention behind bullet proof glass. That would be total hypocrisy.
I think that is very clever.Like +1,000
Obviously the NRA & Republicans don't really believe the 2nd amendment BS they push on the rest of the country~Canuck~
Yes, they do. They believe it for themselves. Not for the lowly peasants.
AS long as we can ensure that everyone there - from police to vendors to janitors to journalists are all TEaTHUGS? Circular firing squad away.
Ohio law prohibits possession of a firearm in an establishment that is licensed to serve alcohol on the premises. The First Merit Convention Center has a liquor license, so their petition is a waste of time.
BANG! You hit the BullsEye!
Heaven forbid they have their convention in a dry hall. When they have to choose between their guns and their booze, you can see where their loyalties really lie.
I'm not into encouraging them to bring any more firearms than it would naturally occur to them to bring... I work about 3 blocks from Quicken Loans Arena and 2 from the convention center. We still aren't hearing *anything* on whether we'll be in a security zone or not, and if so, what restrictions we might face. That week is going to be bad enough as it is, let's not make it any worse.
You are not alone Gryph. It's a dream of mine too. What fun! =)
Why are the 2nd amendment advocates so afraid of guns?They banned guns at this year's CPAC convention because of their fear of guns, and now they are using the EXCUSE of the Quicken Loans Center's gun rules to mask their fear. They deliberately chose this venue to hide behind the fact that they are afraid of guns and needed a plausible excuse to ban the guns.What happened to their mantra of "good guys with guns"?... Could it be that they are afraid of the upcoming Trump riot and how guns will play into that scenario?SO MUCH FOR 2ND AMENDMENT RIGHTS.
7:14, you don't suppose that maybe, just MAYBE, these fools realize what we have been saying all along? That the problem with that little saying of theirs about good guys and guns is that you can't really tell who is a good guy?
So let me try to understand this: the people who want to be allowed to bring their guns into the arena are afraid of exactly what? They've heard there might be rioting (because of what Trump said) so if EVERYONE is allowed to bring in a gun, then EVERYONE is at risk of being shot. This reminds me of the folks who said that if guns had been allowed in that movie theatre, then the gun-toting assassin wouldn't have stood a chance and fewer people would have died.These people are both incredibly stupid and overwhelmingly fearful.
So let me try to understand this: the people who want to be allowed to bring their guns into the arena are afraid of exactly what? -------------Exactly, this isn't open to the public so the only people attending are like minded Republicans.So they are afraid of "themselves".Or it could be ISIS bombers are planning on swimming across Lake Erie from Canada (there is no wall) and sneak in.
Yeah -- would that be "homegrown" Canadian ISIS bombers or maybe a couple of Syrian refugee ISIS bombers??!!!At any rate, I wish people would remember FDR's famous saying "There is nothing to fear but fear itself". IMHO, the GOP is turning its members into quivering wusses, with significant help from the NRA. Keep the people scared enough and they'll be ripe for attack.
Just because a venue has a liquor license doesn't mean every event serves alcohol.
How fucked in the head do you have to be to even suggest this?
Oh please, I was so looking forward to a firefight. What are GOOPers without their penis extenders?What Would The NRA Do? WWND?I want those second amendment rights they preach about daily!
I signed the petition. What could possibly go wrong?
Since they can only act when it happens to THEM, then maybe that would be the BEST way to actually get some common sense controls on guns in this country - a few, or more than a few, of the holy rollers get called home.
My sentiments exactly.
Lots of guns make everybody safer!That's why Syria is the safest nation on Earth!
Well, since they don't allow you to bring your own guns there, because the arena itself is allowed to serve alcohol, maybe they should simply set up a booth for the NRA inside the convention center, where the NRA either sells or loans everybody a gun that is inside. Like that, no 'outside' guns, and thus no bad guys. Right?(I know, I know. Convoluted logic, but so what. I am trying o pretend I am a TeaPukeLieCon).
Even though it's perfectly legal to open carry without a permit on the streets of Cleveland or any Ohio city or town you'd think these folks would be a little worried to do it there after what happened to Tamir Rice. Oh...
And the elephants are trumpling across the American countryside. Don John Duck driving the clown car and cruzing for a bruzin to the open cary con-vention. The silent but deadly, rump party, vote for the Donald duck and his beautiful, naked, 3rd but 1st lady of foreign origin. Does someone, anyone, vet first ladies? and 3rd ladies too? and friends? And is this done before the election? and before entry into the USA People's House?
I sincerely hope the idiots carry guns into their convention and have a great time trying to outdo the other in showing which one is more manly. It's going to be a kick in the butt to watch!
It's not just you, Gryphen, People I know have asked me how far back they want to take the country, and I've thought of two people stepping away in opposite directions, turning around a duelling it out with guns. Because happiness is a hot gun barrel and a dead opponent in the road, according to the ammosexual hate squads.
Well, since they now want to arm little children, I don't see why the GOP should be fearful of their own base; after all they're adults and have better control than little kids. Hahaha! I was reading today about Wisconsin's governor Scott Walker with GOP chair Reine Prebis making subliminal statements as if he will be a contender for the nomination. Also, there's 'reluctant' Paul Ryan who says he doesn't want the nomination, but that's a ruse because they speak of him as the GOP savior, and he 'reluctantly' likes that idea. He thinks that highly of himself. Well, they all think highly of themselves. In fact, they're just full of it! So, it'll be wild in Cleveland as the big, bad, dark money takes over the convention. Imagine the betrayal the teabaggers will feel, or whoever are the voters for Trump or Cruz. IDK, maybe a Bundy style takeover would bring convention fun. It'll be hoooge!
Because guns will not be allowed inside the arena, but they are allowed outside the arena, during the convention anyone protesting outside the arena - or anyone happening to pass by - is in extreme danger, IMHO.
Don't feed the trolls! It just goes directly to their thighs.
