Origin of notion that the reason men own guns is because they're insecure about themselves

Oh, he is defending them?

Seems to me like he is putting in a considerable amount of effort to blurr the lines and avoid the topic. But that's just me. I have a tendency to miss normal social cues
Yes, he defends socialism, but also yes, he loves to muddy the waters by claiming that the US is a socialist nation just like the USSR, Venezuela, etc.
That may explain a lot of your confusion... they are countries with extensive socialist institutions. They have socialism as an essential part of their economies. They are socialist countries, just as the US is in many ways.

Perhaps you should explain the process that led you to your particular arbitrary views of firearms and your belief that rational, issue-based firearm regulation is unwise or immoral or in violation of your ideology.

I believe i answered your questions and my position on the subject are not unique in fact they are rooted in the very founding of this nation. Free people should remain free. Now please answer mine.

Are you aware of any totalitarian regimes that did not share your views on gun control?

Feel free to project your inadequacies on me.
I have many inadequacies, but not confusion about firearms, socialism and totalitarianism is not one of them. I also do not allow my politics to be so rigid as to interfere with common sense. Most of the problems with firearms are driven by a certain fanatical, ideological and irrational set of emotions that fuel absolute statements and misunderstandings such as the assertions about socialism, freedom or liberty.

Ok. Please demonstrate this.

Once again you have not really explain the evolution of your firearm bias. You were not born with your set of absolute dogma. You came upon it somehow. Perhaps you do not know, perhaps you know but are embarrassed to admit, perhaps you never really gave it any thought.
Your question again is an attempt to introduce "totalitarianism" into this discussion and I have no interest in going there as I am not familiar with gun laws in those societies. I am familiar with gun laws in many Western societies.

This is him attempting to avoid the topic.

It is a common practice of leftists. They wish to discuss the nuances of "socialism" indirectly. Try and pin them into a direct debate on the subject and they run away EVERY SINGLE TIME

They hope to drag the thread out long enough to shade the original topic, but im sure that you are aware of this.
Agreed, but did you see the link? Among the least free are socialist nations: Russia, China, Venezuela, North Korea, etc. ROFL

Yeah, this is another leftist tactic. I blame the public school system.
Agreed, along with the propensity to engage in personal attacks. Sad, but mildly amusing. It's like watching a 6 year old try to explain a broken cookie jar on a puppy.

Don't fault public schools. Like Ron White said, "You can't fix stupid".

No my friend you introduced totalitarianism into the thread, specifically in regards to gun control


Here

Your link is more about gun sales than gun ownership.
Isn't Venezuela a communist country? This is a discussion of countries with socialist institutions. Socialism is not identical to communism. Any totalitarian society will try to ban firearms. No surprise there. Saudia Arabia is a similar situation I am sure to Venezuela.

Many "socialist" countries on this list:

15 nations with the highest gun ownership | Deseret News

Again

Your words


Any totalitarian society will try to ban firearms. No surprise there.

This is how i came to the conclusion that you must be a totalitarian.

But i guess maybe you are not. This is why i provided you an out. If there are totalitarian regimes that did not also share your views on gun control. From my understanding disarming the people is a crucial step that all totalitarian regimes take. Maybe i am wrong.
