Mayor Bloomberg, Buy Those Handguns

By David E. Petzal and Phil Bourjaily

New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg seems to have become the gun-grabbing poster boy of the year. For some months, he has led a campaign among his fellow mayors to crack down on handguns, and has used the shootings at Virginia Tech to fuel his rhetoric.

(The Mayor’s own record on public safety is anything but unblemished. He recently vetoed a ban on aluminum bats, which was overridden by the New York City Council, and his police department tends to fire more ammo than is tasteful into innocent people.)

I have full confidence that whatever Mayor Bloomberg wants to do will be just as irrelevant and ineffectual as all other efforts at gun control. But there is one thing he can do: If the mayor is really serious about public safety, why not simply buy up all the loose handguns with his own money? Bloomberg is worth between $13 and $16 billion. With that kind of money, he could offer a real incentive to all criminals and prospective mass murderers to hand in their hardware. For example:

“I will personally give $1,000 to anyone who turns in a functional handgun, no questions asked, in any city in the United States. There will be no limit to the number of guns you can turn in.”

Now let’s say the Mayor is willing to part with $10 billion. That means he could take 10 million handguns off the streets (if ever there were that many) and still have $3 to $5 billion left over to buy himself the White House. There would hardly be a handgun to be found in America. The next time a potential mass murderer walks into a gun store, he will come out with an aluminum baseball bat, because that’s all they will have.

Non-gun-owning acquaintances ask me why anyone needs more than a few firearms. I say to you, the American people, why does anyone need $15 billion? It is time, Mr. Mayor, to stop the rhetoric and put your money where your mouth is.

The sad fact is that Hillary and Company have hijacked the word Liberal.Being a Liberal is a good, honest, American trait. When I think of famous Liberals, I think of Thomas Jefferson, Edward Abbey, Hunter Thompson, Henry Thoreau, Theodore Roosevelt, and David Petzal.Words like "ban", "control", "restrict", and "confiscate" are not the trademark of liberal thinkers. Those are the words of Facists. A true Liberal would never allow himself to be controlled by governmental bureacrats, for his own good or anyone else's.When I hear people like Hillary Clinton called a Liberal because she wants to put more governmental controls on American Citizens, I laugh out loud. Anyone calling her a Liberal obviously doesn't understand her politics or the politics of free Liberals versus Facist Communism.We have not had a truly Liberal leader in office since JFK.

I think that Mayor Bloomberg represents all the other liberal trash out there like Hillary Clinton. Liberal trash whose only talent is to comb their hair so the horns don't show. It is unbelievable how dumb some people are. If all guns are ment for killing people, then all kitchen knives are to stab people with and all swimming pools are for drowning in. Mayor Bloomberg is obviously someone with far too much money and not enough common sense. Take guns off the streets and responsible, law-obiding people will be defensless against ruthless criminals who will damage this nation out of evil, legally issued gun or not.

Conservatives who are using the situations to attack the executive branch of the government because they hate Bill Clinton, Janet Reno and Liberals so much their brains leak.In the 1939 case, U.S. v. Miller, the Supreme Court found that possession of a firearm is not protected by the Second Amendment unless it has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia. No gun control law brought before the Supreme Court or other federal courts ever has been overturned on Second Amendment grounds.If it could be done (which it can’t) I would like to see the elimination of all handguns and any long gun that can fire more than three rounds. They weren’t even that far when the 2nd Amendment was written, and it still allows real Americans to hunt and defend themselves from Negroes, Arabs and Liberals.But it is the third issue, behind hunting and self-defense that is the Jim Dandy of them all. They want their handguns and assault rifles for the coming revolution to overthrown the stinking liberal socialist government. How far does one lead an F-16, a B-52 or an artillery shell with a pistol? Where exactly is the best place to aim at a Abrams A1 tanks or a battleships with an M-16? Revolutions are not supplied from gun shops but from ship containers full of armaments from other nations and dependent upon which Armies go to what side rather than what can be bought at gun shows. Which brings up another point. I would like all gun shows made illegal. For if you have evergone to one, you know they are the hottest breeding ground for the most violent Right-wing extremists in the land.

Just for you Roethlisberger.Today the front page of my Tennessean (the Nashville paper) says "Massacre may benefit bill on guns". There is a bill to allow those with concealed carry permits to go armed in state run parks and the feeling is that VT has caused people to realize they have a right to defend themselves against criminals and/or crazies... and that the vote this week will allow us the freedom our constitution gave us. The RIGHT to bear arms.

Dr. Greene, my little boy likes playing with dolls. In fact he wants a Barbie for his birthday. My husband is very upset about this. Is he okay? How important is it for boys to play with dolls and for girls to play with blocks? Kekelis says boys who engage in stereotypical "girl" activities develop nurturing skills and refine their fine motor coordination, which can later help them with such skills as handwriting. Similarly, by playing with blocks, girls gain experience and confidence in their math and science skills..Teachers often encourage gender biases without even being aware of it, Brandon points out. For example, teachers may ask children to build a snowman. "Why not say snowperson?"

Why not just get a motor home? A good motor home on a halftrack chassis would be just right to carry all your supplies. Pull a high-clearance trailer behind for your pack goats, jeep, armory, and ATV & snowmobiles. Use the pack goats for intetresting side trips and day hikes to those kikki Indian villages and communal eco-villages. You can buy China imports from the Indians and collect free STDs from the communards. Cool!Of course they do! I placed an urgent order for The Great Iron Screw by e-mail and then wanted to add a couple of utility goats to it. I called Lee Valley Tools and the woman I spoke to was friendly and helpful - she added the goats to my order and also gave me advice about which tools to choose to adjust them properly. My goats arrived quickly and in perfect order and I was happy with the quality of the animals. They have a very nice selection of utility goats and I will be ordering additional utility goats, meat goats, and several hair goats soon. Mohair smoking jackets are de rigeur!You must understand that SOCIALISM has won!

His legions of NaziBoyz were always impeccably teased, shoe-polished, hot-waxed, and buffed, and of course Blondie simply shone like a jewel whenever she was presented to the adoring public.

Of course, Hitler eventually destroyed everything that he loved. That said, he never lost his love for his splendid NaziBoyz, but sadly, his ill-advised schemes eventuated in their wholesale destruction nonetheless.Hitler also precipitated the destruction of the finest war material of his or any age.Germany's superb range of aeroplanes, splendid ships, incredible U-boats, and the world-famed Tiger Tanks are either gone to scrap or lying shattered in distant lands, or lost beneath the careless sea.Of course, the Kennedy Family still own and maintain the magnificent U-235, a U-boat, or submarine, that escaped the war intact and in good order throughout, including all armaments and other equipments.Senator Kennedy still uses the fine ENIGMA machine aboard U-235 to compose his speeches, and he often takes the U-235 on clandestine "missions" down to fabled Atlantis, where he is a welcomed and celebrated regular at the nonpariel Atlantean houses of prostitution.Thanks mostly to Kennedy family money and influence, Atlantis remains, 37 years after her re-discovery by Dr. Ballard, an exclusive, super-secret hideaway playground for only the richest and most famous of the world's creme de la creme of power-celebrities, much as is the United States Congress.And after all, isn't that just as it should be?

We're goingto let this tough, no-nonsense Little Black Dress do all the talking, , by keeping the accessories to a minimum. We'll go with the pressed-steel auto-marque earrings and understated patent pumps by Yanni. You'll carry a kicky little purse made from a humanely-harvested box-turtle's shell on a quietly assertive strap of particolored faux Sillystring.Makeup will be minimalist, in keeping with our stealth theme... just a little ebony lipstick and a touch of purple eye shadow. Nails? Short and clean, (Think B!lly Mays or that Broom Hunk) with a classic salesman's hard-shine buff.Of course you are dying to ask, "But which wig shall I wear?"Well, , I want you to be daring!

Sublimely understated, yet commandingly eye-catching in a wholesome, yet aggressively MASCULINE way!

That early Fall of 1937...the summer leaves just beginning to change... the beautiful old city, the music, the splendid weather, the stirring pageantry of rank upon rank of magnificent men and powerful, potent machines, the tympanic beat of a hundred thousand gleaming leather boots, and over it all, arm raised in rigid salute, THE FURHER HIMSELF!!!

HITLER'S VARIOUS BITS WENT BACK INTO THE BOX AND ARE PRESUMED TO REMAIN THERE, SOMEWHERE INSIDE RUSSIA.THE HORSE LIVED A LIFE OF PAMPERED LUXURY IN THE FRENCH CAMARGUE UNTIL 1955, WHEN SHE EXPIRED.

The reaction will be approximately the same, and the learning experience approximately as rough.You should get yourself a horse and get yourself up to Calgary and learn a thing or two about life. It's a very broad subject, and a very engaging one. Go ahead and kiss a big brown bear, if you want to. If nothing else, it will be a learning experience for you. BTW, there are some very BAD people in this world, and the U.N. is an utter farce.

America is the land of the Evil empire and land of the selfish chosen few.while they worry about other lands and breast cancer that men contract,the very country they live in falls apart,and the humor in it all is that they help it along with liberal cause and shows of weakness.Yet they forget the poor people's they use as political pawns for money gains and political power as the rest of their people "Suffer".A melting pot of destruction and hatred that is being breeded in this land of the dead is growing closer to its final days and with must rejoice from those of us waiting to take this jem in the rough and recut it to the more pleasant luster you can give such jems.Yet with money and social programs they think they can buy there way out of destruction like western fools do.They think they are all knowing and all powerfull that this dream they live will never die,yet they do not see that it already has died a million deathes and that they have a land of diveded people eager to take power and restore it to the old ways.Yet they lend a hand to there internal enemies and help them grow more powerfull as they grow weaker and there people draw a more seperated line.What fools these Americans are and how weak can these people be,yet they are nothing of the grain there elders were.Such weakness deserves to die and others take there place in powerYOU obviously had some sense of line and proportion, but that doesn't mean I could design.

It IS truly a form of "THEFT", which easily demonstrates what is WRONG about your entire Party. Your CEO's loot & rob everything in sight.Also, you demonstrate that you lack imagination if you feel you can only post by "identity theft" and "moniker theft".

I agree with you Dr. Ralph. I unfortuanitly live in a big city in NV and hate it. In another year I am moving to a small town to go to college. Every chance I get I will go out and hunt and fish. I enjoy going out and hunting for a big Muley. As of right now I have killed 3 deer in 5 seasons, 1 Antelope, and many Quail and Chucker. They are some of the greatest experiences I have had in my life. Hunting is great fun and even if I am unsuccesful in getting an animal I still had fun just going out and spending time with my dad. Hunting is a great thing and hopefully it will never be taken from us by people like Bigbner who know nothing about hunting and how it benifits the environment.One such benifit is it keeps the animal population in check, ie one animal group wont get to large and kill of the others. For example: NJ outlawed bear hunting thinking it was bad for the bears, well after a while the bear population got to big and they started interacting with people and in many cases killed the people. Some other examples: Austrailia- Rabbits and Western US- Mountain Lions.Bigbner dont say that I am spouting info from the NRA because I am not a Member. I got all of these cases from my city newspaper and a history book."Hunting is a great pleasure in life and hopefully it will not ever be outlawed."

I’ve stayed in Anaheim for the Gay Days another weekend.And the whole chorus spent the weekend terrifying the Bible study groups.A handful of our group mired in Big Gay Dramas, rehearse some more ... and before the weekend is over, there will no doubt be a Scandalous Sexual Encounter that will keep the chorus gossip circles abuzz for months.After a mighty struggle to extract myself from the almost unearthly comforts of my glorious hotel bed Sunday morning, I donned my gay apparel running gear, chugged a ton of prev julian gallo and headed out the door for a fabulous run through the Park. No wonder the Republicans are in office—us gays are too busy emulating alienating outsnobbing each other. (I must say we look good doing it, though.)

Sadistic personality disorder is a pervasive pattern of cruel, demeaning, and aggressive behavior, beginning by early adulthood, as indicated by the repeated occurrence of at least four of the following:* Has used physical cruelty or violence for the purpose of establishing dominance in a relationship (not merely to achieve some noninterpersonal goal, such as striking someone in order to rob him or her)* Humiliates or demeans people in the presence of others* Has treated or disciplined someone under his or her control unusually harshly.* Is amused by, or takes pleasure in, the psychological or physical suffering of others (including animals)* Has lied for the purpose of harming or inflicting pain on others (not merely to achieve some other goal)* Gets other people to do what he or she wants by frightening them (through intimidation or even terror)* Restricts the autonomy of people with whom he or she has a close relationship, e.g., will not let spouse leave the house unaccompanied or permit teenage daughter to attend social functions* Is fascinated by violence, weapons, injury, or torture

Congrats to Dr. Ralph of Indiana. I too live in the Red-Neck Country side. Have traveled over most of North America,but found no place perm I like better than here in the hills of NC. O, I love to hunt out West for a few weeks each year, then when my hunting time has expired, i'm ready to come back to God's Country. Like you, i can shot off my porch and no problems from anyone. Try that in NY,Denver, Chicago, etc. and your BUTT is in jail. So let the Mayor of NY buy up the guns at one thouand each. Pretty soon he will be broke as I bet there are many guns down south. Wish he would contact me, I got a few traders I will sell him and buy some I really want. Don;t want all the guns, just one of each of the one's I want. Good hunting Dr, shoot-um-straight.

Today’s Conservatives – especially today’s Republican Party are very good at talking the talk but they are incredibly bad at walking the walk. While they extol the greatness of Ronald Reagan they repeatedly violate Reagan’s Rule not to air party problems in public so that the opposition can benefit from that knowledge.So too are they delinquent in actually practicing what they preach.How many of you have taken pen to paper and written a soldier serving in Iraq?How many have sent a care package to afford one of them a little piece of home?How many of you have actually written to your elected officials expressing your dismay or congratulating them on a job well done?How many of you have advanced financial support – be it $1 or $1,000 – to the new media outlets that you patronize and who have without fail carried the water to the elephant while the mainstream media has served its big money special interest donors in the defeat of America?How many of you have given of yourselves to promote the fact-based education of those around you so that our country would be a more educated and thus a better place to live?What have you done to make sure there is an American Heritage to pass on to your children and your children’s children?SOCIALISM IS NOW! AND FOR ALL! We Democrats should chalk up victory after victory, inching further and further toward controlling not only the House and Senate but the White House and Supreme Court as well.Socialism brothers is within our grasp!

I believe in the First Amendment Right, but there are times when it becomes overly burdensome and begins to be the same as hollering “Fire” in a crowded theater. In order for the blog to stay on track it might be worthwhile to limit the number of posts one person could make, based on that person’s e-mail and not name.That’s the 2 cents worth of a “Conservative” who will defend your rights to the end, but this is not the end!

For sure this country is headed to HELL in a handbasket from the comments written. Just be thankful you yet have a firearm and can still hunt. Better enjoy your days out-doors, as they are the best days you will ever have. Believe me, as I;m 72 and I know from experience. Some day, you will ask yourself, why did I not go hunt to such and such? We create our own downfall, then want to blame others. We are our own worst enemies. What do you expect to have in elected positions when less than 25 % vote in the primaries and less than 50% in general elections.

As a queer, I love my firearms. I think firearms are necessary for the protection of all our rights including my right to love a man who might love me. We ought to open up weapons stores in queer neighborhoods and teach 'em to shoot and be responsible for their weapons. Bloomberg, who cares. Arm everybody in Greenwich village. Sure, there will be one or two problems from time to time...but if somebody thought queers might shoot bashers to protect themselves, it would be a more peaceful world. A polite community is an armed community.Republicans, Democrats...who cares. They'll sell out anybody including gun owners when it suits them. But if everybody owned guns...what are they gonna do? I like that small town that requires a homeowner to own a gun. A homo-owner ought to own one, too. And we all know that New York has alot of our kind. Make 'em pink, blue, green, mauve and a light shade of olive. Guns for everybody, guns for progress, guns for peace, and guns for freedom. Tell your local weapons dealer that Big Fag sent ya.

Leta move ourselves to a higher plain, and leave subcunts.com behind.While I will continue to encourage pointing out the idiocy and harrassment, crooked dealings, gang banging that the MODS perform over there on an almost daily routine. I feel it would be in the best interests in us, as we S L O W L Y yet assuredly gain members and widen our user base and therefore points of reference and diversify our discussion pool, that we should pay more attention to our discussions rather than constantly comparing our ideals, morals, and education or research into the topics discussed TO those posted on subcunts.com, and instead focus ON our research, cites, and background that supports the truths that WE post here that generally run entirely contrary to the soupo nazi versions allowed/promoted on subcunts.com.We, the faithful, wholly interested in truth posters here merely degrade ourselves as well as our informative posts, by slinging the shit so righteously deserved at the majority of idiots at subcunts.com…Henceforth, while I will not delete, block ban or anything else, the continuation of the above referenced actions concerning subcunts.com, I would like to see us grow and continue to improve our discussions BY trimming down as much as possible and convenient, the references to the stupidity that that “other board” displays at every turn.How does that sound to the folks here? We don’t need them as has been [proven over the years, we are better off as persons, and collectively without them, and frankly I felt my IQ rise merely by being banned and blocked from associating with the types that frequent that site.This action will undoubtedly allow all of us to cover more background material and make our point more coherent, and easily digested without the inherent references to what so and so said or in reference to the jackbooted policies “over there” etc etc etc..Again I will not take any adverse actions towards anyone who does not subscribe to my desired minimization of referencing subcunts.com, but am merely asking you the posters to do so as judicially as you can, in whatever levels you see fit. We, again, are better off without them, and our posts therefore should reflect that fact without mentioning them don’t ya think?Please trust me thee is no agenda on my part, I still think tommie boy and most if not all his moderators are nothing more than back stabbing, two faced, liars of the highest order and are admitted snitches to whatever law enforcement agencies they have so obviously aligned themslves with in what can only be interpreted as an attempt on their part to cozy up to the jackboots of ALL levels in order to gain, maintain or improve some “protection” of their position either personally or business wise. This modified thinking, on my part at least, is along the lines that if (and I surely am) bettered by not associating myself with subcunts.com through posting and discussing with them, THEN the further I am dis-associated from them the better I am as a person and as a business/businessman.the floor is open for debate-opinions-agreements-disagreements.

It never ceases to amaze that the "girliest" of men among us, those who send others to fight illegal wars but who did everything in their rich daddy's power to avoid fighting in one themselves and, those who make their living sitting on their fat asses endorsing the former chicken-shits and otherwise mouthing off, are the first ones to point a finger at someone else for not being as "manly" as they imagine themselves to be. If these idiots are so manly, why aren't they out loading trucks, raking concrete and installing iron on high-rises?Sexual ignorance and repression has, over millenia created mindsets and monsters that tend towards various perverse expressions.Take the Catholic church and it's penchant for pedophilic priests.The exterminition of females primarily, as "witches" during the Middle Ages? Recently, Amish girls were murdered, the little boys spared. The Christian community lauded the Amish for showing the world, "dignity", by "forgiving" the murderer for killing little girls. Little was said about the gender-defined targets, or why he targeted them. What about Hitler, our favorite Christian? One shining example of "righteousness", and "manliness", and "power". One of most reliable monster- mindsets is the American-style, bland accessment of females as (secondary), sex-objectified, or politically or financially "profitable" to males, and thus also expendable, entities. We are told, that it is the "proper role" of females to support males. For carrying on the "bloodline" for "breeding". Males over the world are considered more "valuable", and, this is the sad lie. The "provocative, deceitful female " has been identified as causal; origin of everything that can be victimized without consequence. Bought and sold. Enslaved. Chattle. But mostly brainwashed. Pity that. Maybe Emily jilted or ignored Cho Seung-Ho? He wasn"t getting any, no doubt. Neither was Hitler. The language of beauty; of peace; of equality as "persons"and the culture that supports these concepts...will perhaps flourish again. We do not yet know when or where.

Interesting point about at least 3 shootings that were stopped by people with guns (Appalachian Law in VA, Edinboro PA, and Pearl MS) -- the people who stopped the perpetrator did not shoot. It wasn't the "wild west." The perpetrators went on to be processed by the legal system. It puts the lie to Ramsay Clark's image of the basic good character of much of our citizenry -- including those inclined to carry guns (as if such desire to carry renders anybody suspect).As for a shootout at 30,000 ft -- maybe that would have been preferable to the destruction of the world trade center or the partial destruction at the pentagon, together with the concomitant loss of life.

Adding to the pile of idiots, Newt Gingrich has blamed the VT killings on "liberalism," giving the NRA branch of the Reich Wing a brand new bumper sticker: "Guns don't kill people.

And before 24 hours had elapsed, Rush Limbaugh, expert on everthing from painkillers to Parkinson's Disease, implied that fewer kids would have been killed if they just weren't so slow getting out of the way.Yes, folks, this is why it's called "compassionate conservatism."

As for those NRA types and National Review "chickenhawks" who were so quick to criticize the men(and women presumably) students at VT who didn't rush the attacker or who criticize the gun ban on campuses across the Commonwealth, it is worth remembering former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark in his magisterial "Crime In America" (Simon and Schuster, 1970)-" a society where each person carries a weapon to defend himself is one bordering on anarchy-not democracy. The fastest gun survives- not necessarily the law abiding person but the psychotic or the criminal" Thi is the same sort of nonsensical argument that said if the passengers on the 9/11 flights had guns to confront their hijackers, they might have saved the day( that's all we need- shootouts at 30,000 feet!)When will common sense prevail and America join the ranks of democracies(Australia, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and France) that tightly limit gun ownership???

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,269534,00.htmlFeds Accuse Alabama Militia of Planning Machine-Gun Attack on MexicansTuesday , May 01, 2007BIRMINGHAM, Alabama —Five members of a self-styled Alabama militia were denied bond Tuesday after a federal agent testified they planned a machine-gun attack on Mexicans. A sixth man accused of having weapons and explosives components in his home was approved for release.U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Armstrong said he could not grant bond because of the agent's testimony and the large number of weapons — including about 200 homemade hand grenades and a launcher — that were seized in raids last Friday."I'm going to be worried if I let these individuals go at this time," the judge said.The five are charged with conspiring to make a firearm.Law enforcement authorities, meanwhile, continued to look for additional weapons that could be linked to the group, including in a local cave.Adam Nesmith, an agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, testified that the five men planned an attack on Mexicans in a small town just north of Birmingham, and went there on a reconnaissance mission April 20.Nesmith said one of the men told an informant that the group, which calls itself the Alabama Free Militia, saw government agents as "the enemy" and had a standing order to open fire if anyone saw government agents approaching.The sixth man is charged with being a drug user in possession of a firearm. A federal agent testified they found two rooms loaded with guns and possible explosives components, including fireworks, ball bearings, primers, mouse traps, light bulbs and fertilizer.A lawyer for one of the men has said the case has been overblown by authorities. He said his client began stockpiling items partly because of the scare of the Y2K computer glitch in 2000.

Ben,So tell us how you really feel. Just one last question. It deals with, gasp, the original topic. If Mayor Bloomberg actually offered to buy guns at a thousand bucks a pop, would you lean a little towards capitalism and sell a few; or would you give them up for nothing?Just trying to round out the tableau for a more productive discussion. Please forgive me for quoting you.

Now I ran into political idiots and oppression! . I find it odd that you accuseothers of being robots when in opint of fact you yourself was simply repeating the same replyover and over and over and over and over ... Why are the BushBootLickers so scared of truth? What a pathetic attempt to shout down those who question lies.The anti-bunutse, and anti-dem posts ARE getting a little ragged around the corners. There are MANY hell a veritable plethora of topics that we, as in ALL of us, need to concern ourselves with in this new century. Times are growing short for many of us that come here, and other than trying to drive the point home where it unfortunately NEEDS to be, there is or are other ways to do it... and other topics that at times may have as much or more relevance.Not a criticism, or bustin yer chops but a smorgasbord of topics is much better and more palatable than just the TWO topics you center on. You are better than that and I KNOW you have the resources at your command and the smarts to educate and inform many a person on things of importance rather than or in conjunction with, bushy bushy bushy.Show us ok? Get the word out but round it out at the same time. Bush for a large part is a done deal, and will be gone from the stage in short order. It doesn't matter who the prez is we all know that, the movers and shakers behind the scenes can and fairly regularly DO accomplish just as much and many times much MORE than the president does by nefarious usage of the rules available to them in their little backroom committees and crap. At this time I believe those are the folks we need turn our attention to, while keeping a sharp eye on bushy junior just in case the worthless draft dodging WAR CRIMINAL gets us deep in the crap. I understand the obsession with bush et al. I couldn't hate a political figure more than I do bunutse and krewe but we are prexching to the choir to a piont here. Albeit we, well a couple posters in particular, ARE getting the point across ad naseum but that IS what it takes for seemingly millions of sheep so called AMERICANS and their internet "leaders".... hahahaha.... I am proud that we have and hopefully continue to shine the light of publicity to the many acts which bushie boy is forcing on us ala patriot act, homeland security, TSA etc etc etc... it shows that we aren't sheep like another board I can think of, well... many other boards actually because the other other board will not suffer the sheeple to discuss politics basically AT ALL. Forget the voluminous RULEZ one has to hurdle JUST to make a post but get a little snot on yer nose ANYWHERE on the internet and all of a sudden you are UNworthy to post there at all. All that said, we need to round out our discussion tableau for a more productive discussion board and to survive and thrive and GROW.

Greetings, my children! You have been called here to recapitulate the principal steps of our new program. As you know, we had hoped to have twenty years between wars to consolidate the great gains which we made from the WW II, but our increasing numbers in certain natal areas ia arousing opposition to us, and we must work with every means at our disposal to precipitate WW III WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. This IS IT..THIS IS IT!Of course the good and noble Republicans would never do such a thing, everyone knows that. RIGHT! It has often been said that the first casualty of war is the truth and we know that to be true. We have been down this same road before and seen this same scenario even before George, the puppet, Bush was elected president our government had no excuse for invading a sovereign nation, so we invented one, 9-11 was the answer. The government of Afghanistan nor the government of Iraq had anything to do with 9-11, but were blamed anyway.lurking behind the scene are the NEOCONS pulling the strings to start these wars. The evil bastards, and that is a kind word for what they are, have their eye on, first, the Middle east and eventually the entire worlds oil, and most of the world’s leaders are co-conspirators in their plot. Now they are trying to start a world war between the Muslims and the West.

The sad fact is that Hillary and Company have hijacked the word Liberal.Being a Liberal is a good, honest, American trait.

Those are the words of Facists. A true Liberal would never allow himself to be controlled by governmental bureacrats, for his own good or anyone else's.When I hear people like Hillary Clinton called a Liberal because she wants to put more governmental controls on American Citizens, I laugh out loud. Anyone calling her a Liberal obviously doesn't understand her politics or the politics of free Liberals versus Facist Communism.We have not had a truly Liberal leader in office since JFK.

Conservatives who are using the situations to attack the executive branch of the government because they hate Bill Clinton, Janet Reno and Liberals so much their brains leak.In the 1939 case, U.S. v. Miller, the Supreme Court found that possession of a firearm is not protected by the Second Amendment unless it has some reasonable relationship to the preservation or efficiency of a well regulated militia. No gun control law brought before the Supreme Court or other federal courts ever has been overturned on Second Amendment grounds.If it could be done (which it can’t) I would like to see the elimination of all handguns and any long gun that can fire more than three rounds. They weren’t even that far when the 2nd Amendment was written, and it still allows real Americans to hunt and defend themselves from Negroes, Arabs and Liberals.But it is the third issue, behind hunting and self-defense that is the Jim Dandy of them all. They want their handguns and assault rifles for the coming revolution to overthrown the stinking liberal socialist government. How far does one lead an F-16, a B-52 or an artillery shell with a pistol? Where exactly is the best place to aim at a Abrams A1 tanks or a battleships with an M-16? Revolutions are not supplied from gun shops but from ship containers full of armaments from other nations and dependent upon which Armies go to what side rather than what can be bought at gun shows. Which brings up another point. I would like all gun shows made illegal. For if you have evergone to one, you know they are the hottest breeding ground for the most violent Right-wing extremists in the land.

Dr. Greene, my little boy likes playing with dolls. In fact he wants a Barbie for his birthday. My husband is very upset about this. Is he okay? How important is it for boys to play with dolls and for girls to play with blocks? Kekelis says boys who engage in stereotypical "girl" activities develop nurturing skills and refine their fine motor coordination, which can later help them with such skills as handwriting. Similarly, by playing with blocks, girls gain experience and confidence in their math and science skills..Teachers often encourage gender biases without even being aware of it, Brandon points out. For example, teachers may ask children to build a snowman. "Why not say snowperson?"

Of course, Hitler eventually destroyed everything that he loved. That said, he never lost his love for his splendid NaziBoyz, but sadly, his ill-advised schemes eventuated in their wholesale destruction nonetheless.Hitler also precipitated the destruction of the finest war material of his or any age.Germany's superb range of aeroplanes, splendid ships, incredible U-boats, and the world-famed Tiger Tanks are either gone to scrap or lying shattered in distant lands, or lost beneath the careless sea.Of course, the Kennedy Family still own and maintain the magnificent U-235, a U-boat, or submarine, that escaped the war intact and in good order throughout, including all armaments and other equipments.Senator Kennedy still uses the fine ENIGMA machine aboard U-235 to compose his speeches, and he often takes the U-235 on clandestine "missions" down to fabled Atlantis, where he is a welcomed and celebrated regular at the nonpariel Atlantean houses of prostitution.Thanks mostly to Kennedy family money and influence, Atlantis remains, 37 years after her re-discovery by Dr. Ballard, an exclusive, super-secret hideaway playground for only the richest and most famous of the world's creme de la creme of power-celebrities, much as is the United States Congress.And after all, isn't that just as it should be?

I'm going to put you into a little hand-combed cotton number today, . Simple, but elegant, with slits at the sides that subtly reflect your worldly sophistication and sexual elan. We're goingto let this tough, no-nonsense Little Black Dress do all the talking, , by keeping the accessories to a minimum. We'll go with the pressed-steel auto-marque earrings and understated patent pumps by Yanni. You'll carry a kicky little purse made from a humanely-harvested box-turtle's shell on a quietly assertive strap of particolored faux Sillystring.Makeup will be minimalist, in keeping with our stealth theme... just a little ebony lipstick and a touch of purple eye shadow. Nails? Short and clean, (Think B!lly Mays or that Broom Hunk) with a classic salesman's hard-shine buff.Of course you are dying to ask, "But which wig shall I wear?"Well, , I want you to be daring! Be strong! Be aggressively, phallically understated in an overstated way! I want you to join my FASHION TERRORISTS!What am I saying? Simple! SHAVE THAT HEAD, ! I'm talking a real hot lather, steaming towel, straight RAZOR SHAVE here, !! Then, hot-wax with natural tropical carnauba and buff to a brilliant shine. We'll round out your look with gold-leaf cladding for your remaining front tooth and a cruel little EYE PATCH!!!!!!!! You'll knock 'em dead, !I expect an answer from you about those stunning uniforms, jymmy! All of the Nazi regalia was obviously conceived and coordinated by a GENIUS!So MASTERFUL!! Sublimely understated, yet commandingly eye-catching in a wholesome, yet aggressively MASCULINE way! Yes, the colour and line of the young men's clothing was simply superb, and the accessories were simply perfection!Oh! That early Fall of 1937...the summer leaves just beginning to change... the beautiful old city, the music, the splendid weather, the stirring pageantry of rank upon rank of magnificent men and powerful, potent machines, the tympanic beat of a hundred thousand gleaming leather boots, and over it all, arm raised in rigid salute, THE FURHER HIMSELF!!!

HITLER'S VARIOUS BITS WENT BACK INTO THE BOX AND ARE PRESUMED TO REMAIN THERE, SOMEWHERE INSIDE RUSSIA.THE HORSE LIVED A LIFE OF PAMPERED LUXURY IN THE FRENCH CAMARGUE UNTIL 1955, WHEN SHE EXPIRED. FOLLOWING HER DEMISE, SHE WAS BRONZED AND PLACED ATOP THE BRANDENBURG GATE AT BERLIN, WHERE SHE REMAINS TO THIS DAY TO THE DELIGHT OF MILLIONS. SOME SAY THAT SHE HAS BEEN OBSERVED TO BREAK WIND AT HIGH NOON ON MAY DAY, BUT THAT HAS NOT BEEN INDEPENDENTLY CONFIRMED.

Our Little Fairy's name is "Awaken"She was everyone's Auntie Beck, and beloved by all. I can see her now, at her great iron breaking mill outside of Johannesburg, grinding up huge elephant carcasses, Limoges tea sets, unruly children, autombiles, lorries, and huge grey stone statues of long-dead Dutchmen, along with whatever else the Kaffir boys brought out of the city to her.You may kiss a white bear if you'd rather, or even a Black one. The reaction will be approximately the same, and the learning experience approximately as rough.You should get yourself a horse and get yourself up to Calgary and learn a thing or two about life. It's a very broad subject, and a very engaging one. Go ahead and kiss a big brown bear, if you want to. If nothing else, it will be a learning experience for you. BTW, there are some very BAD people in this world, and the U.N. is an utter farce. The big brown bears will leave you alone if you do them the courtesy of leaving them alone, but with bad people, the opposite is usually the case.

I agree with you Dr. Ralph. I unfortuanitly live in a big city in NV and hate it. In another year I am moving to a small town to go to college. Every chance I get I will go out and hunt and fish. I enjoy going out and hunting for a big Muley. As of right now I have killed 3 deer in 5 seasons, 1 Antelope, and many Quail and Chucker. They are some of the greatest experiences I have had in my life. Hunting is great fun and even if I am unsuccesful in getting an animal I still had fun just going out and spending time with my dad. Hunting is a great thing and hopefully it will never be taken from us by people like Bigbner who know nothing about hunting and how it benifits the environment.One such benifit is it keeps the animal population in check, ie one animal group wont get to large and kill of the others. For example: NJ outlawed bear hunting thinking it was bad for the bears, well after a while the bear population got to big and they started interacting with people and in many cases killed the people. Some other examples: Austrailia- Rabbits and Western US- Mountain Lions.Bigbner dont say that I am spouting info from the NRA because I am not a Member. I got all of these cases from my city newspaper and a history book."Hunting is a great pleasure in life and hopefully it will not ever be outlawed."

So, in summise, for those who have been wondering (you know who you are), I spent the weekends in glorious San Francisco! I’ve stayed in Anaheim for the Gay Days another weekend.And the whole chorus spent the weekend terrifying the Bible study groups.A handful of our group mired in Big Gay Dramas, rehearse some more ... and before the weekend is over, there will no doubt be a Scandalous Sexual Encounter that will keep the chorus gossip circles abuzz for months.After a mighty struggle to extract myself from the almost unearthly comforts of my glorious hotel bed Sunday morning, I donned my gay apparel running gear, chugged a ton of prev julian gallo and headed out the door for a fabulous run through the Park. No wonder the Republicans are in office—us gays are too busy emulating alienating outsnobbing each other. (I must say we look good doing it, though.)

As a queer, I love my firearms. I think firearms are necessary for the protection of all our rights including my right to love a man who might love me. We ought to open up weapons stores in queer neighborhoods and teach 'em to shoot and be responsible for their weapons. Bloomberg, who cares. Arm everybody in Greenwich village. Sure, there will be one or two problems from time to time...but if somebody thought queers might shoot bashers to protect themselves, it would be a more peaceful world. A polite community is an armed community.Republicans, Democrats...who cares. They'll sell out anybody including gun owners when it suits them. But if everybody owned guns...what are they gonna do? I like that small town that requires a homeowner to own a gun. A homo-owner ought to own one, too. And we all know that New York has alot of our kind.

I feel it would be in the best interests in us, as we S L O W L Y yet assuredly gain members and widen our user base and therefore points of reference and diversify our discussion pool, that we should pay more attention to our discussions rather than constantly comparing our ideals, morals, and education or research into the topics discussed TO those posted on subcunts.com, and instead focus ON our research, cites, and background that supports the truths that WE post here that generally run entirely contrary to the soupo nazi versions allowed/promoted on subcunts.com.We, the faithful, wholly interested in truth posters here merely degrade ourselves as well as our informative posts, by slinging the shit so righteously deserved at the majority of idiots at subcunts.com…Henceforth, while I will not delete, block ban or anything else, the continuation of the above referenced actions concerning subcunts.com, I would like to see us grow and continue to improve our discussions BY trimming down as much as possible and convenient, the references to the stupidity that that “other board” displays at every turn.How does that sound to the folks here? We don’t need them as has been [proven over the years, we are better off as persons, and collectively without them, and frankly I felt my IQ rise merely by being banned and blocked from associating with the types that frequent that site.This action will undoubtedly allow all of us to cover more background material and make our point more coherent, and easily digested without the inherent references to what so and so said or in reference to the jackbooted policies “over there” etc etc etc..Again I will not take any adverse actions towards anyone who does not subscribe to my desired minimization of referencing subcunts.com, but am merely asking you the posters to do so as judicially as you can, in whatever levels you see fit. We, again, are better off without them, and our posts therefore should reflect that fact without mentioning them don’t ya think?Please trust me thee is no agenda on my part, I still think tommie boy and most if not all his moderators are nothing more than back stabbing, two faced, liars of the highest order and are admitted snitches to whatever law enforcement agencies they have so obviously aligned themslves with in what can only be interpreted as an attempt on their part to cozy up to the jackboots of ALL levels in order to gain, maintain or improve some “protection” of their position either personally or business wise. This modified thinking, on my part at least, is along the lines that if (and I surely am) bettered by not associating myself with subcunts.com through posting and discussing with them, THEN the further I am dis-associated from them the better I am as a person and as a business/businessman.the floor is open for debate-opinions-agreements-disagreements.

It never ceases to amaze that the "girliest" of men among us, those who send others to fight illegal wars but who did everything in their rich daddy's power to avoid fighting in one themselves and, those who make their living sitting on their fat asses endorsing the former chicken-shits and otherwise mouthing off, are the first ones to point a finger at someone else for not being as "manly" as they imagine themselves to be. If these idiots are so manly, why aren't they out loading trucks, raking concrete and installing iron on high-rises?Sexual ignorance and repression has, over millenia created mindsets and monsters that tend towards various perverse expressions.Take the Catholic church and it's penchant for pedophilic priests.The exterminition of females primarily, as "witches" during the Middle Ages? Recently, Amish girls were murdered, the little boys spared. The Christian community lauded the Amish for showing the world, "dignity", by "forgiving" the murderer for killing little girls. Little was said about the gender-defined targets, or why he targeted them. What about Hitler, our favorite Christian? One shining example of "righteousness", and "manliness", and "power". One of most reliable monster- mindsets is the American-style, bland accessment of females as (secondary), sex-objectified, or politically or financially "profitable" to males, and thus also expendable, entities. We are told, that it is the "proper role" of females to support males. For carrying on the "bloodline" for "breeding". Males over the world are considered more "valuable", and, this is the sad lie. The "provocative, deceitful female " has been identified as causal; origin of everything that can be victimized without consequence. Bought and sold. Enslaved. Chattle. But mostly brainwashed. Pity that. Maybe Emily jilted or ignored Cho Seung-Ho? He wasn"t getting any, no doubt. Neither was Hitler. The language of beauty; of peace; of equality as "persons"and the culture that supports these concepts...will perhaps flourish again. We do not yet know when or where.

Interesting point about at least 3 shootings that were stopped by people with guns (Appalachian Law in VA, Edinboro PA, and Pearl MS) -- the people who stopped the perpetrator did not shoot. It wasn't the "wild west." The perpetrators went on to be processed by the legal system. It puts the lie to Ramsay Clark's image of the basic good character of much of our citizenry -- including those inclined to carry guns (as if such desire to carry renders anybody suspect).As for a shootout at 30,000 ft -- maybe that would have been preferable to the destruction of the world trade center or the partial destruction at the pentagon, together with the concomitant loss of life.

Adding to the pile of idiots, Newt Gingrich has blamed the VT killings on "liberalism," giving the NRA branch of the Reich Wing a brand new bumper sticker: "Guns don't kill people. Liberalism kills people." And before 24 hours had elapsed, Rush Limbaugh, expert on everthing from painkillers to Parkinson's Disease, implied that fewer kids would have been killed if they just weren't so slow getting out of the way.Yes, folks, this is why it's called "compassionate conservatism."

Bigbenr,The value to wearing a pot on one's head is twofold.First, the pot does indeed tend to ward off the mind altering thought beams eminating from space (and, of course, controlled by American Republicans).The other value is that others are given a sort of visual clue as to the wearer's mental status.Simply put, when one sees another person walking around wearing a metal pot on his head and spewing nonsense about socialist countries in Europe being democracies worthy of emulation by free men, they can automatically feel compassion for his illness and not condemn him for stupidity.You really should try wearing the pot.

As for those NRA types and National Review "chickenhawks" who were so quick to criticize the men(and women presumably) students at VT who didn't rush the attacker or who criticize the gun ban on campuses across the Commonwealth, it is worth remembering former US Attorney General Ramsey Clark in his magisterial "Crime In America" (Simon and Schuster, 1970)-" a society where each person carries a weapon to defend himself is one bordering on anarchy-not democracy. The fastest gun survives- not necessarily the law abiding person but the psychotic or the criminal" Thi is the same sort of nonsensical argument that said if the passengers on the 9/11 flights had guns to confront their hijackers, they might have saved the day( that's all we need- shootouts at 30,000 feet!)When will common sense prevail and America join the ranks of democracies(Australia, Germany, Italy, Spain, the UK and France) that tightly limit gun ownership???

http://www.foxnews.com/story/0,2933,269534,00.htmlFeds Accuse Alabama Militia of Planning Machine-Gun Attack on MexicansTuesday , May 01, 2007BIRMINGHAM, Alabama —Five members of a self-styled Alabama militia were denied bond Tuesday after a federal agent testified they planned a machine-gun attack on Mexicans. A sixth man accused of having weapons and explosives components in his home was approved for release.U.S. Magistrate Judge Robert Armstrong said he could not grant bond because of the agent's testimony and the large number of weapons — including about 200 homemade hand grenades and a launcher — that were seized in raids last Friday."I'm going to be worried if I let these individuals go at this time," the judge said.The five are charged with conspiring to make a firearm.Law enforcement authorities, meanwhile, continued to look for additional weapons that could be linked to the group, including in a local cave.Adam Nesmith, an agent with the federal Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives, testified that the five men planned an attack on Mexicans in a small town just north of Birmingham, and went there on a reconnaissance mission April 20.Nesmith said one of the men told an informant that the group, which calls itself the Alabama Free Militia, saw government agents as "the enemy" and had a standing order to open fire if anyone saw government agents approaching.The sixth man is charged with being a drug user in possession of a firearm. A federal agent testified they found two rooms loaded with guns and possible explosives components, including fireworks, ball bearings, primers, mouse traps, light bulbs and fertilizer.A lawyer for one of the men has said the case has been overblown by authorities. He said his client began stockpiling items partly because of the scare of the Y2K computer glitch in 2000.

Greetings, my children! You have been called here to recapitulate the principal steps of our new program. As you know, we had hoped to have twenty years between wars to consolidate the great gains which we made from the WW II, but our increasing numbers in certain natal areas ia arousing opposition to us, and we must work with every means at our disposal to precipitate WW III WITHIN THE NEXT FIVE YEARS. This IS IT..THIS IS IT!Of course the good and noble Republicans would never do such a thing, everyone knows that. RIGHT! It has often been said that the first casualty of war is the truth and we know that to be true. We have been down this same road before and seen this same scenario even before George, the puppet, Bush was elected president our government had no excuse for invading a sovereign nation, so we invented one, 9-11 was the answer. The government of Afghanistan nor the government of Iraq had anything to do with 9-11, but were blamed anyway.lurking behind the scene are the NEOCONS pulling the strings to start these wars. The evil bastards, and that is a kind word for what they are, have their eye on, first, the Middle east and eventually the entire worlds oil, and most of the world’s leaders are co-conspirators in their plot.

YOU ARE the true cowards within our midst, AND YOU WILL BE THE ONES largely responsible for the ever deepening of the chasm that divides us all and likely will eventually lead to ALL our downfall, imprisonment and/or deaths once geedumbyas homeland in-security and un-patriot acts are used to further demonize us and eventually label the hardcore among us as enemy combatants or finally terrorists for refusing to turn in our evil home computers. It is people who care like that who are hated the most .bet you never thought it would come down like this, eh?I sure didn't and many still can't accept the FACT that it has.you made your beds comrads . Must be a lovely joy joy world you live in where nothing is wrong therefore nothing should be discussed and changed for the better.The mockingbirds sure look lovely joy joy on the lake this time of year, don't you think?

To JasonB-The point you make is valid, and Bigbenr will not have a logical leg to stand it to explain it. He doesn't get that our system of government will hold agencies responsible for their poor judgement(which I do not want to simplify the mistakes made by the government agencies in this case by saying poor judgement!!)I am not an expert on socialism, but the way Bigbenr continues to talk about it, he seems to give the impression that we would have just as much freedom to state our opinion as he does today?I guess I don't understand why he, and other socialist thinkers, just move to another socialistic country?

((((radical left-wing liberal Clinton era))))Umm, yes!Not so! Not so! Ha Ha right-wing paranoia in contrasting attrocities.Me just saw this comment at a right-wing blog, and its so much a lie.In other words, censor anything that doesn't confrom to the Conservative agenda. Spare me the wounded Republican line, okay? The GOP are the ones who for the past 7 years have been running roughshod.Your sarcasm is duly noted. Lets abolish democracy now !Rights arent important especially other peoples so lets give those up - you go first - dictatorship is worth it - at least you know where you stand with a dictator ?I say bring in a benevolent dictator abolish the constitution and set up a gov like iraq had before we attacked its government. People are being attacked in the USA by police and in Iraq as well for protesting the war. The 911 questions are all but missing from the major media, while the GOP dupes squuuuawk "liberal media"..crapola.. Silly me I ASSUMED the other fool could speak for himself - Guess I was wrong - truth is " I have you pegged" TROLL - you make it a habit to jump in then spring the attack surprise - frankly it makes you a WORLD CLASS CLOWN - ignorance = knowledge right? - thread jumping and changing the subject while keeping people ignorant to the fact that you're someone else is your MO troll - funny how it always goes down. just change the subject and HOPE you can beat me on that one - if not just change it again . Didn't fit in with your jump-in spinmeister tactics of trying to paint me as a nutty liberal. Criticizing and poking fun at your detractors is cool? You are full of crap and you are trying to spin your way out of it by any underhanded means possible . Chow Babe!

Bigbenr,How about the ATF and FBI's attacks on Ruby Ridge and Waco? I believe those two events took place under the radical left-wing liberal Clinton era. What "Conservative Point Men" appointed the idiots responsible for these attacks against Americans and the Bill of Rights?

touche`-HGHunterThis is a bigger issue then just taking guns away from law-abiding citizens.We cannot change our fundamental rights, as it were, overnight for the condemnation of a bad act. Pretty soon for the "better of society" one could justify taking all our rights taken away.

This deal of attacking law abiding gun owners with oppressive gun laws is nothing more than a knee-jerk reaction to a problem that would be better handled by enforcing those that are in existence already. Again I criticize the liberal court system; but hey, it is much easier to go after the citizens than it would be to go after a bunch of lawyers and judges. Oh and what do you call a lawyer with half a brain?---------------------------------Your Honor.

It is well documented that disturbing questions remain over the incident at Columbine. It is clear that authorities had prior knowledge of what was going to happen. Observers were in the area hours before the shooting took place. Articles from the Associated Press stated that ballistics from Columbine show that six of the thirteen victims were possibly shot and killed by Jefferson County SWAT.9/11 was an inside jobthis was a psy op to induce fear and panicOKC 9/11 amish school killings katrina vt shootings - NO ONE WILL STOP THEM - WAKE UP AMERICA!!The U.S. of A hs been sliding down the slippery slope towards the pit of tyranny for nearly 30 years now. Somehow a shocking portion of our citizens believe that the Constitution and Bill of Rights only apply to people who swear an oath of fealty to whichever 'conservative' point-men and women are appointed by the Republican PArty 'base' operatives.

A succinct expose' of anti-rights hypocracy! That last paragraph is solid gold, Mr. Petzal! If Bloomberg did this, he would still be dangerous, but I might be able to respect him.

Dan M.,As a city dweller, I think it's important not to confuse cause and effect. Is the crime rate in large cities high because of "onerous" gun laws, or do large cities make "onerous" gun laws because of high crime rates. I would argue for the second.

I think we need to begin an immediate, and very high profile, campaign pressuring Bloomberg to do just that.

Yes, Mr. Mayor,I'm sure the criminally minded will be the first to comply with your proposed bans. Of course.Whatever.Why is it that cities with the most onerous gun laws have the highest crime rates? Because law-abiding people are deprived of the best means of self defence.

Why would Bloomberg want to spend his money buying your guns when he could buy the presidency and then take your guns?

Mayor Moron can't afford to pay $1000.00 for every handgun turned into the city of new york.Hell, I've got a couple of guns the mayor can pay me 1000.00 apiece for and then I can go buy shiny new fancy handguns.Where do I sign up?

I might even jump at the $1000. Turn in a couple of cheap handguns of mine and use the money to buy something new. Could even look at it like an investment. Buy a bunch of High Point 9mm and trade them in. That is about the only way you could get any money out of a High Point anyway.
