Not that I disagree with the premise, but it's important to note that some people don't have access to busses nor horses (which, take it from the voice of experience, are really hard to park without being hassled), and cabs are too expensive... but they do own a car.

If we had kick-ass, Euro style public transit all over America, I would agree with you wholeheartedly. But we don't.

First, I'd like to point out that you would have had an excellent point here, if you hadn't resorted to generalization - no, not all gun rights advocates are 'Duck Dynasty' types who fail to properly handle their weapons. In fact, like most groups, the extreme idiots you speak of are a slim minority who just happens to be incredibly visible.

Second, regarding Ferguson - we were at fucking work. The whole world doesn't shut down because some fascist cops somewhere did some fascist shit. Yea, it's bullshit, and a lot of us feel that if we could have been there we would have, but you know what? We've got mortgages to pay and kids to feed.

Finally, also regarding Ferguson - where the fuck where you, Judgy McJudgington?
