    If he was he wouldn't have needed to put "gun" into the sentence.

    I'm always still in trouble again

      Well, yeah, there's that.
      The first to state his case seems right until another comes and cross-examines him.

        Umm, she was the original target, and it was never shown to be false, just denied by the parties involved.

And apparently another gamer is arguing that another blogger faked her own threats because she posts on Twitter using periods at the end of her sentence and so did the person threatening her. Some of these apologetics are just ridiculous.
          Oh, I don't doubt some of the straining required (though I've seen one incident where it was claimed the victim and perp used the same insults on a regular basis; whether or not it's legit I have no idea). For the record, I don't think the death threats are faked (and this isn't Sarkeesian's first death threat received either). However, I'm curious if there's any evidence found that shows these are done by actual GamerGate advocates, and not just some sickos who get their engine running by sending death threats and watching the ensuing fireworks.

              Being it's Utah they could probably dig a couple up once they're inside so long as they don't screen for seer stones.

                For the purposes of this thread, if you can recognize there's such a thing as a gun crazy, you're not a gun crazy.

                Freaking amazing how many folks posting here can't pass that bar.

                You'd think the whole site up and moved to Utah.

                      Nobody has said anything in this thread about "gun crazies" not existing, so your bar doesn't work. Who are you characterizing as "gun crazies?"

                        The bar's about recognizing their existence. You've missed it once already.

                          No, I've only asked you what you meant by it. I can't deny the existence of something if I don't know what it is. Your refusal to define a term you're using to dismiss people who disagree with you is frustrating.

                          Edit: So I guess if simply asking for clarification, repeatedly, makes me a "gun crazy," then cool. I'm a gun crazy.

                            It's a relative term, Jesse. I would think a gun crazy was somebody who had a whole house full of them, including piles of high capacity magazines, and did a lot of unsafe shooting.

                            Some liberals would think I'm a gun crazy because I own less than a dozen hand guns and am a certified range safety officer.

                            It's quite possible that YOU would think that was a "gun crazy", so, it's a fair question.
