    on our way to the range the other day, she told me that she doesn't think people should be able to have handguns because MOST of the time your own gun is turned against yourself in a robbery. i didn't feel like disputing this without facts to back it up, so can anyone link me to an argument against that?

    The burden of proof is on her to support her argument.

    No

    You tell her to her face that an argument based on hearsay means NOTHING.

    If she wants to be right about a claim like that, she has to prove it.

    Prepare for her to go out and quote you the Kellerman study. :rofl: :mamoru: :rofl:

    She is wrong OR was fed misleading figures.

    I believe there are FBI crime stats out there somewhere indicating that you or a family member are more likely to be shot or killed by one of your own guns rather than by another persons gun, HOWEVER that data included things like: suicides, domestic violence/disputes, accidental discharges, kids finding loaded guns and shooting themselves or siblings, etc...

    You should have just responded with, "That's not true." Then she would be the one searching the interweb for facts.

    Delivery is also paramount, you must have "I'm gonna kill you motherfucker" look, while you growl that line.

    just skimmed over some critiques of kellerman. wow.
    the problem with science is when people with an agenda pursue it. real scientists use rigorous definitions that would've separated homicides/suicides/defense kills/etc.


    also, rule 10

    Get a sharpie, tell her to pretend its a gun and to try to take it. See how many times you can mark (shoot) her before she gets your "gun."

    I don't think women should be allowed to speak about any matters of importance, because MOST of the time, the only thing to come from their mouths is pure idiocy and drivel.

    odd thing is, most "liberals" support certain parts of the constitution- free speech, search and seizure, all that stuff
    but not the second...

    I'm not sure I could be with a woman who had radically different beliefs than myself. My fiance and I don't see eye to eye on a lot of things, but our core values and beliefs are very similar. She isn't really into guns (does occasionally go to the range to shoot my 22's), but also isn't against me owning and/or having the right to own them.

    i'm not really conservative though so it doesn't clash that much. i'm a moderate that owns some guns.
