They're meaningless simply because no matter how well a side states his case he's not going to swing any of the forum participants from their convictions. If you don't have the majority to start then you're a fool to get into it.

Changing people's opinions is not why I posted this. I posted it because it is probably the best example I have of an intellectual evisceration in debate. Christopher Hitchens, Sam Harris, and Bryan Caplan are up there as well.

Oh my....

This was painful to listen to. The anti-gun rights guy had absolutely no idea what he was talking about.

I'm not entirely in favor of all gun rights, but this debate wasn't even fair.

Several of the pro-gun rights guy's arguments weren't even legitimate, but the other guy was too much of an idiot to call him out on it.

For instance, psychological projection. The point is that other people MIGHT be less mentally stable and more willing to abuse their power over life. They might not necessarily be/do so, but there is a possibility.

The gun rights activist was a well spoken idiot. The anti-gun rights activist was a less than well spoken idiot.

Who won the debate? The broadcasting network that made money off that being aired...

I could only get throught about 4 minutes of that. On both sides it's America spinning it's wheels some more and there's no hint of any breakthrough on sensible gun laws. So here's something that makes a little more sense.
-------------------------------------------------------

The NRA Song

Guns are neat, Guns are sweet
Guns the tool, what makes you cool.
Guns are fine, Guns are mine
Guns are things, that Jesus brings!

Guns for loonies, Guns for cons
Guns for Moonies, Guns for moms!

Guns are fun for everyone, buy them up by the ton.
Guns for me, Guns for you, Guns for nuts and children too!
Guns at home, Guns at work, Guns at play, Guns berserk!

Tons and tons of great big Guns,
Are tons and tons of great big fun!

I"ve got Guns up my nose "tween my ears and by my toes.
I"m no fool, I"m so cool, I take Guns to my school.
I take Guns in my car, to the store and to the bar.
I got Guns in a drawer, in my pocket and on the floor.
I got Guns on the wall, behind the toilet and in the hall.

I got guns in my bed, one is growing from my head!
Get a Gun and get it fast, Gun-Gun shoot-shoot is a blast!
--------------------------------------------------

And just remember Americans, the child or loves one that gets shot dead next could be your own. That's about what it takes for the gungoons to see the light!
