also it's obvious your emotions are getting the better of you, how many ppl are walking around with machine guns?

What do my emotions have to do with this statement Huh  And, I didn't say everyone was walking around with machine guns.  But, that is what the NRA is advocating as a solution...arm everyone so that when a bad guy starts to empty his machine gun into a crowd, we're all armed and ready to stop him.  I don't agree with this "solution" and would instead prefer to get rid of all guns Smiley

ban burglary.



You do know that even if you ban gun ppl will still be walking around with guns, RIGHT???


Let me get this straight.  Since not all people follow laws, we shouldn't have any laws?  Is that your logic?

His answer will be something stupid like this:
He is from Colombia. Coke head. You have to excuse him.

Stupid because you disagree with it?  That makes a lot of sense.

Nobody said they want everyone to be armed, this is another emotionally concocted strawman from those who cant think rationally about the subject.

We want you to have the option, if you dont feel the need to own one then dont own one its that fucking simple. The experiences youve had lead you to feel you dont need to own one. The experiences Ive had along with those of ppl I know lead me to believe I should own them.

Why do you feel your experiences are more relevant than mine?

we have already proven that "gun free zones" dont work, why do you think making the entire country a gun free zone is going to be different?

please use facts instead of emotion...

please...facts vs emotion?  No need need to lecture me.  I know the difference.  The opinion I am forming has less to do with my experiences and more to do with facts.  And, the fact is that if everyone around me is packing machine guns, then I better arm myself as well.  Otherwise, I am vulnerable.  If, however, no one has guns except for police and military, than I can walk the streets freely without concern for getting shot either accidentally by some idiot, on purpose by some asshole who's having a bad day or nonsensically by a maniac who wants to mow down a crowd of people.  I don't need a stack of twisted and misconstrued stats to know that.

he only made it this far because of his odd name and goofy appearance lol. seems like a nice enough guy, but a shit interviewer, right place right time. as far as who do i think is better, i dont watch enough interviews to know any of the others, but i do like mauro ranallo as far as broadcasting skill goes.

inside mma is a far better show by the way..

Holy mother fucking shit do I HATE Mauro.  The guy is the 2nd most annoying color commentator in MMA (right behind michael schiavello).  He over uses the word "proverbial", he's always talking about "good chi" yet he doesn't have a clue what it means and he's always talking in that fake broadcaster voice. 

I like Ariel because he's one of us...a fan.  He started by going to the fights and with a mic, camera and persistence, and he's managed to be the most respected journalist in MMA.  He does actually have a degree in journalism.  Ok, enough Arial ass kissing from me.

I am reminded of that quote by Thomas Jefferson concerning the subjects of liberty and security. {sigh}

Mind spin, what country did you grow up in?

Bogota, Colombia.  When I lived there, it was at the height of the drug wars.  Shit was pretty bad.  Kidnappings where rampant.  Once the sun went down, everyone knew to stay home.  No one stopped at a red light for fear of being jacked.  I didn't go anywhere without two armed bodyguards.  Most people were always packing.  My own father was kidnapped right in front of our house.  Fortunately we got him back safe. 

Coming to the US was great.  In the 30 years I've been here, not once have I had that nagging feeling that a gunfight could break out at any time.  Unfortunately, it seems like a lot of people in this country would prefer a state where everyone is armed so that we can all "defend" ourselves against the "bad guys".  The mentality of the best way to stop a bad guy with a gun, is a good guy with a gun will lead us to a point where everyone has to be armed.  And, if that's the case, get ready to live with that nagging feeling that bullets can fly at any moment.  Trust me...it's not fun... 
58  Getbig Misc Discussion Boards / Mixed Martial Arts (MMA/UFC) / Re: :-) on: February 04, 2013, 10:48:04 AM
not a good interviewer. just a fan with a microphone.

I disagree and agree.  You're right, he's a fan with a mic, which is what makes him such a great interviewer.  He asks all the questions we want to know, he knows how to stir the pot and unlike most of his counterparts, he's not annoying.  I look forward to the MMA Hour every Monday.  He has the best guests on the show and always on a timely basis.

Who do you like better?

To much idiocy to respond to by phone Wink

Will respond later...

no need for longwinded responses.  It all comes down to wether or not restricting certain types of guns reduces the chances for mass shootings and wether or not it's worthwhile "infringing" on the right for someone to own any kind of gun they want.

I do believe that restricting certain types of guns will reduce these mass shootings and that more than justifies limiting gun ownership rights.  You (and many others) disagree...

Your kids are in more danger from drunk drivers than they have ever been from guns. It's not even fucking close, why aren't you yelling about banning alcohol?

You're kids are much more likely to drown than be shot, why are you yelling about banning pools?

Fact is banning guns doesn't help the situation in this country.

What is a military style weapon mindspin?

Your letting your emotions lead the way, we all want children to be safe from guns but banning them will simply have the opposite effect. AGAIN schools are already gun free zones, and that's why they are being targeted. These ppl know they won't meet much of a fight there. How is making the entire country a gun free zone going to help?

There are already laws against drunk driving, huge penalties for DUIs and massive anti driving & drinking campaigns.  This has drastically reduced drink driving related deaths.  You're right.  Too many kids drown.  So what have I done about that?  Both of my girls have been swimming competitively since they were 4.  They are now championship swimmers. I can't guarantee that they'll never drown, but I've done everything I can to reduce the chances. 

The rate of these shootings is increasing.  Gun sales are going through the roof.  More mentally unstable people today than ever.  I'm not going to just stand by and do nothing.  If stricter gun laws prevents just one school shooting, then it's well worth it.

What is a military style weapon?  Who the fuck knows.  I'm not going to play semantics.  All guns that allow someone to efficiently mow down a crowd of people should be banned, wether or not they look scary & whether or not they are rifles or hand guns. 

And yes, my emotions play a part in this.  If it weren't for the emotional side of this, there would be no discussion.  If we simply look at this in a logical and unemotional way, we could simply say "Oh well...30 less kids.  We're overpopulated anyway so we're now better off".  But, because little lives were cut short and because we empathize with the pain of the parents, we don't just dismissed it change the channel and move on. 

It appears that some people care more about their right to own a firearm than saving young lives...I'm not one of them Smiley
65  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: February 01, 2013, 10:22:06 AM
many many ppl who have used guns to defend themselves would disagree with you mindspin. I am also no dooms day prepper but I understand the need to be able to defend myself, my family and my property. I also understand that a gun is a tool, an inanimate object that is neither inately good or evil but does what the person who is holding wants it to do.

There are plenty of reasons for guns, if you dont see them you dont need to own one plain and fucking simple...Do not though try to dictate to others whether or not they need them...

You're talking to a guy that is all about personal freedoms as long as they don't negatively affect me.  I support gay marriage, legalization of marijuana, I'm pro choice, etc.  I am also against NDAA, big government, obnoxious taxes, etc.  But this gun thing does affect me.  I'd like to have peace of mind knowing that my kids are safe when they're at school.  It's a big part of the reason why we live in the US and not elsewhere.  Unfortunately, with the gun culture we have today, and the easy access to military style weapons, that is no longer the case.

Goodness gracious auto correct blows

lol...I do all my posting on my iPhone.  It's a miracle my grammar doesn't look worse. 

In any case, I won't get into a stats debate with you.  I do enough of that at work all day. As Mark Twain once said, there's Lies, damned lies, and statistics. 

No...the government does not have my best interest in mind.  But, I'm also not a dooms-day-prepper.  I have no fear that the big bad government is coming to get me.  And, if things ever got unbearable in this country, I would move before joining some sort of revolt.

The bottom line for me, is that I grew up in a country where you absofuckinglutely need a gun to be safe.  In fact, I didn't go anywhere without two armed body guards.  However, in the 30 years I have lived in the US, I've never once needed a gun.  On the contrary, I have been in many situations where if I did have a gun, nothing good would have come from it.  Unless you're living in some gang infested cesspool, no one needs a gun in the US.

Haha thank you sir, you know that's Jennifer Aniston right? And I'm going easy on you bc I've been around here long enough to know you're a good dude just incredibly misinformed and letting your emotions get in the way on this issue.

Sorry bro, I agree that what the past presidents have done to erode away our freedoms is complete shit and I also agree that uninformed morons that are the vast majority of the general public aren't concerned. This however doesn't mean they would turn a blind eye to the govt killing innocent civilians in mass. It really is just a stupid argument that you're making.

As for te second part l point you back to my previous points on not addressing the issue that is the problem. Taking away guns won't stop this it wouldn't even slow it to be honest. The two largest mass murders in our history weren't done with guns. Banning guns and high capsid has not only been proven not to work in other countries around he world but right here in the US.

You know that you have like .001% chance as a person in the is to be killed by a gun? That's not even kids at school. The very very very small % of deaths in this country to kid by guns is really enough for you to say lets ban all guns?

You see why you're bein labeled as emotional?

You're not thinking rationally

I really don't see the government turning on civilians.  However, if stricter gun laws are passed and someone disobeys them, they're going to jail.  If they put up a fight, they'll end up like David Koresh and the Branch Davidians.

As for your stat of the high unlikelihood of being killed by a gun, I have some other stats for you: In the US, more teen-age boys die from gunshots than from all natural causes combined.  Here's another - Excluding natural causes of death such as heart attacks and cancer, death by gunfire was the second-leading cause of death in the US between 2,000 & 2009; only automobile accidents killed more people.

if you wanna kill some people, and your set on doing it. your gonna do it whether you have a gun, a knife, a car, or some poison. whatevers clever.

that being said, the love of guns in this country is sickening.

I agree with you completely.  But, it's a lot harder to mow down a crow of people with a knife than it is to do it with a gun :-/
71  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: January 31, 2013, 12:13:01 PM
Holy balls son the amount of idiocy and ignorance in this post rivals a tbombz post.

First I never Said anything about the govt starting a war to take guns away. If the they did become violent towards it citizens though do you really think ppl would be ok with it? Don't be a dumb ass. Public opinion doesn't drives or legislation if it did we wouldn't be stuck with obamacare. I'm not going to address the rest of the idiocy in your first paragraph as its irrelevant to the issue.

We've done exactly what you suggested in your analogy with drunk driving. We have laws banning murder and you know it's illegal to carry a gun in a school zone right?

You wanting to ban guns is like wanting to ban alcohol, why aren't you pissing and moaning about that?


As for last question luckily for us it's bc they are idiots and don't know the law much like yourself. Everyone who has the right to own a gun has the right to own fully automatic weapons it just takes a few steps. I have a trust set up that allows me to own them as well as other class 3 weapons.

Seeing as those weapons are out there and are available, why do you think they aren't being used?

PS These guys are probably doing a lot more damage with semi automatics than fully automatics. You know how fast a 30 round magazine goes in a fully automatic? You know how hard it is to keep a fully automatic on target? It's much more effective to aim and take or shots with a semi automatic than spray a room with a fully automatic which by the way is only possible if you're not being shot back at....

You watched too many Hollywood movies and obviously have very little I any interactions with the objects you're demonizing.




I'm going to go easy on you because I like your avatar.  If/when stricter gun laws are passed, no one is going to do shit about it.  How do I know?  Because Obama signed the NDAA into law (supported by Romney BTW) and no one did shit about it.  The NDAA shits all over the constitution and does a lot more than take guns away.  If he got that through, and no one did squat, there is no limit to what can be put through.

The reason why most of these wackjobs aren't using more powerful machine guns, is that they are harder to get.  Yes, I am aware of the various loopholes that exist that allow people to have pretty much any type of gun, but making them illegal to manufacture and distribute will make it harder for them to get into the hands of the wrong people.  Your right to arm yourself is second to the right of little kids to be able to go to school without getting gunned down.  If stricter gun laws reduce these senseless killings, we should all be in favor of them.  
72  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: January 31, 2013, 11:08:46 AM
mindspin, how would you define "assault weapon"?

Aren't all guns "assault" weapons?
73  Getbig Main Boards / Politics and Political Issues Board / Re: Mother stops 3 Burglars w Pistol on: January 31, 2013, 11:07:41 AM
First youre completely and totally wrong in your stance that a population armed with guns couldnt defeat a better equipped and better armed opponent like a govt. We have more ex military citizens in the US than the US has soldiers. The us military has less than 1% of the population in its ranks.

Also there are plenty of incident where out armed populations have defeated larger better equiped opponents. Vietname, russian in WW2, Islamist vs. russia, egypt, syria.

How many dictators have fallen in the last few years?

your stance may seem logical on the surface but its just as assinine as thinking that if we ban guns ppl wont shoot each other anymore.

you say your against kids being killed like those against banning "assault weapons" arent Roll Eyes

Im not suprised you didnt answer my question on what happens when ppl start using shot guns and pistols for mass murder as you have no answer to it other than ban those too...

The answer is youre not addressing the problem, youre letting your emotions get the best of you. Stop look at the problem objectively, do you really think these sociopaths would try and kill ppl without guns?

You are right that there are countless examples of large and powerful armies that were brought down by smaller and supposedly inferior opponents or "revolutionaries". But, you've made several critically erroneous assumptions.  #1 - The majority of the US population is for gun control. The numbers would not be on your side.  #2 - you assume that to enforce gun control, the government would declare war on its citizens or start some sort of conflict.  In reality, laws would be passed and anyone who breaks them would simply be thrown in jail.  #3 - you assume that if the gov tried to enforce gun laws and this somehow erupted into a civil war, that armed citizens would prevail.  I highly doubt that this issue is big enough to result in a civil war.  However, if some sort of civil war actually broke out, it would not turnout much different from the first one, except that this time, the gov is much more well armed.

As for answering your question on what happens if people start using other guns for mass murders, it's a silly argument.  That's like saying we should legalize drunk driving because people do it anyway.  We make drunk driving illegal because it reduces drunk driving related deaths/accidents.  The same should go for guns.  Yes, motivated psychos will find a way to get their hands on whatever guns make it easier for them to mow people down.  But, we shouldn't make it easy for them.  

Let me ask you this: why have none of the recent mass murderers used a M16A2 Rifle or some other fully automatic weapon?

Roy Nelson is much too powerful for Kongo.

Roy Nelson's strikes can be devastating if he lands them, his ground game is pretty impressive for a big guy and his ability to take a beating (see his fight against fabricio werdum) is nothing short of amazing.

I hope Kongo has a solid game plan or else he will get killed.

"1"


Look at Roy's fights against JDS and Mir.  The dude can take serious punishment!  Kongo has no ground game and not enough power to stop Nelson.  His only hope is death knees to the balls.
