Well isn't it obvious. Using the same logic as 3danimator2014, there needs to be something banned in order to quell this constant child rape we keep reading about, as I am sure another one will happen shortly.

Oh by all means.......please have your opinion, as ignorant as it is and as arrogant the action is to speak down to others about their business.

Go on.....be brave and cast your opinion onto others.


Funny, as YOUR opinion doesn't have much sway and, drum roll please................................................................................................................................................ ...................................................................................................................................................... .........The numbers show crime is dropping as firearm ownership is increasing.


Along with firearm ownership increasing, the amount of CCW permit requests are on the dramatic rise and Pew research shows that the polls indicate people are tired of the Govt pushing more control and don't want more restriction of Rights.


So.....



So funny how angry you all get...

So let me get this straight. You think crime is dropping because firearm ownership is increasing..

And your defense is that more americans want guns...so you must be right.

Wow..just wow

You know, if i wanted to prove to you that the sky is green, i bet i could also find "proof" for that to back it up. Get my point?

Thats not my logic or what im saying at all. And you know it. But playing along: if something was being used to rape children and was also hurting other people and it was something that nobody needs in day to day life (like guns..) then yes, there would be a discussion on whether that needs to be banned or not.

Maybe if there were guns in the UK, more of the story below could be avoided....seems all we hear about in the US is stories of child rape and abuse in the UK....what gives? I read more cases about things like this in the UK than I ever hear about guns in the US......even going up to the highest ranks of political office there....

www.abovetopsecret.com...


That doesnt make anmy sense. Im saying that without guns, there would be less shotting and home accidents which all involve...guns.

I know what you are trying to say/do..but it just doesnt work


And I am saying that with guns, these stories may have had another ending. No worries though...you deal with your child rapists over there and I will continue to carry my guns over here.....

There would be less children being abused if we got rid of all child abusers....see...they don't even need a weapon to do it....just goes to show it is the PEOPLE that are to blame, not the object.

Anywho....I will go about my days, reading daily about all the crazy disgusting stuff that happens over there and judge you for it from now on.....sound fair enough? Maybe you can figure out a way to defend it that is legal in your system....seems the politicians there have.

There are monsters in this world...guns are not the monster.

There is something being used....people. That is the root and source of your argument....only in the case I brought up, there are no weapons being used, and it is solely to demonstrate that it IS people that are the cause....not guns.

I know a crazy homeless guy down at one of the bum parks that argues with trees. I am guessing that since you want to argue with numbers, you and he may get along very well.

I can introduce you when you visit the US, but you may want to stay away, as with all of the guns, blood is running in our streets and you may not like having to step over all the bodies of the dead children that shoot each other with their father's evil AR15.

In a manner of speaking you could argue the sky is green.

As for your first point...that is what statistics are about. They correlate certain aspects of an argument. In this case the statistics are showing that an increase in guns seems to be working. You can't lump "crime ridden" areas into your scenario of school shootings or whatever. Crime ridden areas will always be that way until the area is cleansed of the criminals....weapons are not the problem.

Weapons certainly are the problem when we are discussing GUN crime. We are not discussing rape, murder, beating etc...

And how is it that you get that I am angry??

Ohhh, I forgot. That is the easy label to use when all else fails by those that are anti-2nd.

But, I am happy and shall rejoice. Want to know why?









































Because the ignorant views and opinions of an uninformed foreigner about US based Rights means about as much to OUR life as a turtle being able to breath in outer space.

My point is a criminal is a criminal regardless of the tool used....they always will be. And had there been guns around, it is very possible that the guys that pedophiles in the UK may be a bit more hesitant to mess with someones kid....at this point they kind of don't have anything to worry about as evidenced by the number of years these guys have been doing this and the daily scandals about this same thing that are printed in US papers.......

Totally irrelevant. Of course anytrhing can be dangerous. But no one needs guns. other than law enforcement and farmers.

I see you are a Sunny fan (turtle in outer space...). Great. me too.

And i know my views mean squat to you. So what? I have no intention of changing any laws in the states.

And as for you guys being angry, i suggest you read the last 10 pages. Some VERY angry gun nuts in here.

I love it. I love how you guys pretend that gun crime is non existent in the US ...or at least happens rarely. Hilarious.

That would be the Chinese...the first firearm dates back to the 13th century....so.....

And none of your criminals are armed, yet they are still committing heinous acts, and on children nonetheless...like I said....it is the PEOPLE that are to blame, not the tool...
