“Gotta spend ammo to get ammo.”

Guns are drawn because that what these guys do. Their self-image is built around an old, tribalistic idea that the guy who is the most successful fighter gets to be the leader (and thus have the most reproductive opportunities.)

It’s a biology thing, so in part I can’t help but have sympathy. Yet it also shows how backwards these people are - they really, really don’t want to live in the 21st century.

…snip - they really, really don’t want to live in the 21st century.

Gun can help with that, too—and often does.

Then you don’t have to feel sympathy at all, because it’s not really a “biology thing.” As we’ve gotten better at observing animals, the less and less the concept of “an alpha” holds up as being about dominance through aggression. Indeed, aggression tends to lead to mighty warrior leaders that drop dead, get ousted, or get killed in a very short period of time, and don’t even necessarily manage to spread their genes around via the strategy (Read Sapolsky).

So social indiscretions, as egregious as they may be, are now grounds to commit murder. Killing someone because they cut in line. Utterly amazing and unhinged at the same time.

This is a prime example of the “mental health” issue when it comes to PROPER gun legislation. Also I would seriously go as far as to require religious affiliation and the severity of the prospective gun purchasers depth of faith on applications as these are DIRECTLY proportionate to the loss of common sense and the ability to function in a normal society. No IF’S and or But’s!

This is all Obama’s fault!! Blargh!

Seriously, I hate the paranoia has made ammunition so scarce. I wanted to go target shooting on my property the other day (I live in a rural area far from city limits, I’m not a fool) but couldn’t because I don’t have much ammo at the moment and have had no luck finding any recently.

The NRA gun fetishists are so easily fooled and manipulated. I remember going to a gun show right before the 2008 elections and the utter propaganda and fear mongering by the dealers AND buyers was immense. I’ve been going to gun shows since I was a teenager and until recently I never saw people buying multiple cases of ammo. I hope the dealers are raping these idiots with inflated prices.

So much for that armed society being a polite one huh. Really, if you’re bringing out your gun over an argument about place in line, then you’re a frigging idiot.
