why normal folks hate gun owners

Was surfing the net looking for some info on the Mossberg 5900 and the "jungle gun" version and accidently came across this piece of digital garbage. Suddenly I began to understand that THIS is how the normal people see us honest gunnuts. I just thought you guys should read this, as this is the image we have to fight.

Be warned, there is a bit of foul language.

What is promoted in the "Aflicted Yard" website is nothing short of the endorsement of criminal behavior. It is banal at best and pathetic as it dissiminates the ramblings of an individual in need of psychological counseling. What disgusts me most is that they attempt justify themselves in a sort of plight of the underclass diatribe. Having been a member of that underclass and as a gun enthusiast I can only hope that few people actually find their way to that website.

Normal people often ARE gun owners, the wacko that started that being the exception.

Easy one to fight.
Yardies as they are known, are nothing but gangsters (real gangsters, not gang bangers). Think of Yardies as the British version of our mafia during the height of Capone. The site listed is probably some punk Yardie wannabe since the real thing would hardly want to draw attention to themselves like this.

From reading some of the cr** at the web site, I found that it is from Jamaca. There have been several articles (some here I think) about the horrid crime rate and rise of armed gangs in that country. A country with strict "gun control". When travel companies discourage tourists from going out after dark or going out alone in a major tourist stop, it makes you wonder. IIRC, the Jamacian Minister of Tourism has made many statements regarding the crime rate against both tourists and the citizens of the country causing a drop in the amount of tourist $ coming in.

I would be suprised if the web site got much traffic outside of the people involved and us, now.

bleeeecccchhhhh...

As the owners of a Mossberg 590 mil spec (and being throroughly disinclined to carjackings), hubby and I are not amused. :barf:

I will place the author of this site into my "desperately needs a life" category.

Hubby says: "this person can perform a wholly unnatural act upon themselves with a Mossberg 590."

Was that not the most offencive thing you have read in a long time? The worst part is they had enought actualy real gun jargon and factual info about the weapon (probly just plagerized from the mossberg ad just like the pictures) to sound like a knowlegable person to an anti.

The HK Mp5, Mac10 and Glock .45 all recieved previous Tool of the Month "recommendations". I bet HK and Glock would have a field day with this jerk. He even suggests that it is quite easy to convert the Mac10 and MP5 to full auto, simply by removing a certain peice of metal. What a moron.

Afraid of Their Id

When I asked my friend Chris, a fellow gun owner, recently why gun grabbers seemed so irrationally afraid of guns, he said:

"They're afraid of their id."

I don't think I've ever had a question answered so succinctly and so dead on. [The Afflicted Yard] creator would certainly fit that description, no?

[Edited to fix spelling and clarify that I was talking about The Afflicted Yard, and not the originator of this thread.]

Gun control in jamaca

Twenty some years ago, 60 minutes did a segment on the newly implementd gun confication law in jamaca. Every firearm was confiscated, Period!! British troops and police were brought in to assist the locals. they swept the island and searched every dwelling and building.

Today, jamaca has the highest homicide rate in the western hemisphere. Do the do-gooders ever learn from history. No. They all think that they are smart enough to make it work this time. There can be no other explanation for the media and academia facination with socialism and and many of its manifestations, one of which is gun control.

Ditto Ditto what everyone says above. However they have some of the funniest bin laden pictures that you have ever seen.

On home page, click top right navigation button, "the informer"

Go down page, click on "where angels fear to tread" Next page click on WTC pictures.

These are the best bin laden parodies that I've see yet, especially the picture of oj holding bin laden's head on a tray. The caption says, send the right man to do the job.

enjoy

Just so everyone knows...I am the poser, NOT the author of this website. I think some of you may have gotten the mistaken notion that this was my site. It is not. Just something I stumbled onto while surfing.

How deplorable, "happy white kids", not "happy kids". That pretty well defines the author. Just another racist.

I know that Discord. But we all know that liberals and especialy anti-gun libers, consider themselves normal and the rest of us as evil and hell bent on destruction.
By "normal people" I ment anti-s and non gunowners.
I'm just as normal as they come, but to the anti-s I'm as normal as a 3 headed antichrist. on the other hand folks like Clinton, Larry Flint, and Ted Kennedy are not only normal, but heros to the left.
