    The question I'm referring to starts at 3:15 into it.

    Some guy asked what the candidates thought about gun control, then pulled out a tacticool AR-15 on camera in the middle of a Democrat debate :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:. Unfortunately he seemed to be the type of gun owner we try to avoid the image of, at least in public, referring to it as his "baby" and such. Bill Richardson offered a relatively reasonable answer, but unsurprisingly Joe Biden spewed feces all over his podium. Definitely didn't expect to see that though :rofl:

    I couldn't make out the weapon but the mag looked more curvy, like an AK or SKS, didn't it? :dunno:

    You could tell by the stock, front sight, and end of the barrel. I paused it to make sure. :o

    Only Richardson and Biden responded to the gun control questions... and they were massive idiots in their responses.

    I think Sen. Joe Biden is mentally imbalanced.

    people refer to their cars as "their baby," maybe we should revoke a DL if they refer to the car like a child. Biden is an asshat. I would have much rather hears somebody ask what a barrel shroud or bayonet lug is. Or to ask them what makes an "assault weapon" more dangerous than a neutered gun with a lot of ammo.

    Bill Richardson is a fuck up. If he gets elected I'm storming the hill myself. He's fucked this state up, "but he voted for a concealed carry bill!!!!!" :rolleyes:

    I liked a few of their responses on various topics, but they all sucked overall.

    Dear Senator Biden,

    I will keep this as short as possible. I want to take the opportunity to give my opinion on your response to the question in the recent Democratic debate about gun control in which a gentleman referred to his ar15 as his “baby".

    First, who are you to question his mental stability simply because he referred to an inanimate object as his “baby”? Do car nuts not call their cars their “babies’? Does that mean they are not mentally balanced enough to possess a driver’s license?

    In the skillful art of debating there is a well-known fallacy called “ad homen”. This is where a debater has no logical response to the subject in debate and begins to attack the character of the person. That is clearly the avenue you decided to take in this debate. For future debates, it may be beneficial for yourself not to come off looking like an idiot and ass, to stick to the subject in debate.

    I actually like Gravel, he's similar to Ron Paul in many aspects.
