That is a fallacious argument. Every armed person in these United States combined together will not and cannot defend their own rights, the security services have them rather outgunned.

Missing the point I see. I suggest a few thought experiments relative to the 2nd and 1st.

Sort of.

CA allows for it after many restrictions, and only in "rural" areas. Try finding a "rural" area in CA... and then just try to open carry. CA has too many people raised to fear guns that they will shoot gun owners on sight (yes that is a joke - or is it?)

It is more of an issue of trying to placate ignorance. Even in states where open carry is a common sight, it is recommended to conceal because liberals in city centers go NUTS when they see a gun and call the police (or worse, take vigilante action). Law enforcement often recommends not openly carrying in cities. It has nothing to do with your condescending "douchey" statement... at least no douchey-ness on the part of the gun owners!

They shouldn't? So if Mr Liberal has been relocated because of work to an area that is traditionally conservative....he should just stop working and become homeless instead? I'm not sure why you think liberals are jumping in their cars to move to conservative areas because they want to live in them instead because its a work, etc requirement.

People can dislike Californians all they wish, but expecting someone who is politically liberal to magically change his/her political beliefs because they happen to move to an area that is mostly conservative....is just silly.

Sounds like a bunch of inbreeds doing their best to live up to their stereotype.

I suppose it would be asking too much to squeeze in:
religion
homosexuality
tea party
and my dog Blue
??
Would truly be the "All American Thread"

For the final punchlines can we somehow work in Joe Biden? Always good for a laugh or two, so should not be too difficult to do.
