    ocool a generic article featuring points that have been made for centuries about this very same thing. Retreading 2nd amendment rights bullshit aside, these few choice lines made me laugh:

    Wow, I read a few pages of this and it's really quite a ridiculous thread. Overwatch, you're crazy as fuck if you really believe the shit that you say.

    Been to AZ once when I was young and the most memorable thing was how bad the water was. Like drinking lead. Easy to breathe tho.

    I've been to arizona once and other than the canyons i thought the landscape was the bleakest / most depressing i'd ever seen.

    Clearly you've never seen western Nebraska.
    On guns: penises are just as dangerous, but we're not trying to regulate them/ban large ones, are we?

    Yeah the water is pretty bad. RO systems make a fortune here. The desert is definitely an acquired taste, coming from back east. I thought the same thing when I first got here. It's like extreme vocals. Initially harsh, eventually loved. I'm going to miss the landscape.

    Oh look, a generic poster wants to make a drive by ad hom. /yawn

    When Juggalos throw trash at you, what actual conclusion can be made? Don't they throw trash at anyone/everything?

    Explain the problem with the first quote.

    My initial reaction is that the author makes the error of believing that "reason" will be the same for both parties of a disagreement; as though there's an objective well of reason that both can tap and derive some platonic ideal of their situation.

    If reason were exactly the same for both parties in a discussion or disagreement, well...there wouldn't be a disagreement.

    Exactly. The author oversimplifies the situation.

    I find it pretty clear that the author recognizes this, and also recognizes that where persuasion/seeing eye to eye does not occur, the next step in achieving ones ends, if a person is insistent, is coercion. Hence, the necessity for a means of protection.

    I thought you wanted the response of right-wingers? I am an anarchist.

    What about situations where the person in possession of the firearm isn't the one in the right? This author seems to take the position that being in possession of a firearm constitutes superior "reason."

    The Daily Show: Ron Paul is the 13th Floor

    If "right" is subjective, the question is not about means of coercion, but the coercion itself. The means are irrelevant.
