Re: “While the spirit of the message may be there, the #Never movement is maddeningly misused on incumbents

Nonsense. Your entire argument rests on the unwarranted assumption that the phrase refers only to a singular, isolated idea.
"Never" could refer to any number of things in this context, both logically and grammatically.
Never vote for.
Never support.
Never accept.
And on and on.

Re: “Ball on the Bridge highlights LGBT ball culture on the Andy Warhol Bridge

It might have occurred to the author to bother to define the term "ball culture".

Re: “Donald Trump and his supporters need to learn that free speech doesn’t mean free of consequences

I witnessed the hypocrisy and blindness to irony amongst Trump's microencephalic legion outside his rally in Oakland, when I was called to task by one of his supporters for carrying a sign with an arrow that read "This is what stupid looks like" as I walked along the line waiting to get inside Soldiers and Sailors Hall. Her problem: I was being rude. The fact that she was waiting hours to see a person whose sole response to criticism is ad hominem was lost her.

Re: “Art exhibit canceled after dispute over boycott of Israel

Barbara Luderowski's big mouth and ineptitude ruin another event in Pittsburgh, which she then pawns off on others. No big surprise.

Re: “Art exhibit canceled after dispute over boycott of Israel

" Israeli artists should have no place in a civilized art forum."

Your comment has no place in civilized discourse.

"If the Palestinians "would like to go the sea," then they should tell Hamas, et. al. to stop killing innocent Jews on the way to the shore so that peaceful Palestinians can enjoy such a trip."

The logical and factual holes in this statement are large enough to build a tunnel all the way to the Atlantic ocean.

Re: “Mike Vallely talks about Black Flag, then and now

"The bass player is dating Mike V's daughter. Probably how he got the gig."
Or you could, you know, try to RTFA.

Re: “Lost Bill: As a city councilor, Bill Peduto fired a shot for gun control. Was he shooting blanks?

Wow, what a tour de force of illogic, failed understanding of history, and just flat out misstatements of fact. to wit:
Rich Quinlan writes: "Ella, what part of "the right to bear arms.. Shall not be infringed" MAYBE THE PART YOU CONVENIENTLY LEFT OUT‽ You know, the part about state run militias? And please bring up absurd grammatical nonsense about comma placement to highlight the fact that not only do you know understand the history of the amend mane, you don't understand English grammar either.
Dick Haid writes:
"The efforts should be to punish criminals, you have shown you can't out think them." If a law is passed stating that a person who fails to report a gun theft is committing a crime, guess what? They are a criminal, and should be punished. You don't get to pick and choose. You're not in any position to be casting aspersions on anyone's intelligence, Dick.
Chris Faller writes:
"… in Pennsylvania, there are no licensed gun owners."
Um, nonsense. Hint: writing something onto the internets does not make it so.
"But why should someone who just has a shotgun for Turkey season have to be limited in their purchase of ammunition?" Um, why not. If the only reason you have a gun is for Turkey [sic] season, a limit on your ammo would not have ANY adverse effect. "Who is to say what is 'limited'". Um, the State. That is why the Second Amendment is written the way it is.
"For myself, one trip to the range on the weekend, and I can go through over 500 rounds without even trying hard." So what? What on earth is your point? It certainly has no logical relevance to ANYTHING you wrote preceding it. "As for Walmart and Dicks, and not allowing them to sell ammunition. More people are killed with blunt objects than firearms in the US every year. Should they both also no longer be allowed to carry baseball bats? Or hammers?"
How on earth is that even remotely relevant. Comparative deaths has NO bearing on the issue. Even if it did, this statement is a COMPLETE and utter fabrication. It is, intact, an outright lie, oft posted by the far-rioght gun lobby, and dutifully regurgitated by you, with NO basis in fact. In fact, the published FBI statistics shoe EXACTLY the opposite, namely:
Firearms: 67.8%
Knives or other cutting instruments: 13.4%
Personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, etc.): 5.7%
Blunt objects (clubs, hammers, etc.): 3.9%
Other dangerous weapons: 9.2%

Firearms: 67.8%
Knives or other cutting instruments: 13.4%
Personal weapons (hands, fists, feet, etc.): 5.7%
Blunt objects (clubs, hammers, etc.): 3.9%
Other dangerous weapons: 9.2%
While they do not break down "blunt objects into categories, and as such, no number can be ascertained for "baseball bats", note that even it 100% of "blunt objects" were baseball bats, your statement would STILL be a flat out lie. That's the problem with parroting bullshit force-fed you by others. No matter what you do to dress it up, it's still bullshit.

"wrong how about start by enforcing the current laws and leave law abiding citizens alone"
Oh, you mean like the law in question?!?

And then there is the piece de resistance, the quintessential example of failed logic and nonsense, the post by Gary Mesina. Not a single thing he wrote, whether in caps of not, has ANY basis in fact, let alone follow logically from what are facts. Ever sentence is either factually inaccurate, flat out wrong, or derived through logical fallacy from other factually devoid statements.

But such is the wont of the ammosexuals with their ammosexual agenda.
