    no, no , no Crossref wasn't searching for humor. He was challenging my statement about possessing guns. He was using absurdity to disprove my point. Crossref has a good point, mosque goers should not be expected to carry guns at worship. Unfortunately, the mosque is a soft target.

    Gosh you really are disagreeable

    I wasn't making a joke , I was highlighting the absurdity of US gun lobby who frequently say that eg teachers should have guns to protect themselves from school shootings, and householders should have guns to protect themselves from burglars etc etc

    Funnily enough I have not heard them arguing to arm mosque goers . .. but that would be the logic, wouldn't it ?

    Perhaps you should pause for thought before lashing out with your insults (and btw never get a gun yourself , you are far too hot tempered )

    Its his first offence of any kind.
    He's found guilty, discharged without conviction and fined $1000.

    From your perspective, he is now never, ever allowed to work in any employment, ever again, for the rest of his life?

    That is a very good way of throwing a young man on the scrap heap by driving him into a life of crime. You just created a serious problem for all his future victims for the next few decades until he's caught, at which point you will have cost the taxpayer hundreds of thousands of dollars to incarcerate him... good work!!

    I guess you are against rehabilitation?
    If he's found guilty, I don't understand how he doesn't have a conviction.
    Part of my issue is the recency effect. Would I hire him soon after his act of violence and conviction? Nope. A good few years afterwards and he has demonstrated learning and consistency of behavior? Yeah, likelier.

    But in this situation? Not so much

    Me thinks you have been reading the tabloids too much.

    I could generalize about all NZers being Kiwi eating sheep f@ckers, but that would be wrong....

    TBH, by your punctuation, I'm not sure if you mean:

    New Zealanders that eat kiwis and f### sheep, or

    Kiwis that eat people that f### sheep, or

    Sheeo eat kiwis and New Zealander F### these sheep


    Anyway, I don't think New Zealanders eat the kiwis that are their nickname, but they may eat kiwis that are in fruit salad. No sheep involved in eating. Sheep only involved in the f thing

    It looked like a joke to me; a joke in disgusting taste.

    What insult?

    Saying you disgust me is not an insult!

    I am a gun owner. Have been for over 40 years.

    (and to answer NKW's obvious next question, I was in the Air Force at that time, and I kept my guns in the Base Armoury.

    Nothing to do with the tabloids (I don't read them anyway, I generally read respectable US newspapers websites - New York Times, Washington Post etc

    Since you you live in America, go ask a Black person or a Hispanic or an LGBTQI person what its like for them living in America right now with the homophobic & misogynist Racist-In-Chief in The White House.

    Newspapers websites. I don't know why that is funny. Is that an oxymoron? Kinda like secular values.

    You forgot some groups. Muslim, women, and immigrants or illegal immigrants. Illegal immigrants, another oxymoron. And don't forget the USWNST.

    I'll ask the USWNST what it is like living in America. I've called Alex Morgan several times this morning. Oddly, I can longer leave messages.
