And sadly, you aren't mentally capable to think just a tiny bit further on this.


This comment is why I shall not be replying to you any further beyond this post. I have been nothing but polite and respectful, unfortunately you cannot seem to return the favour.

It can look like running away until ...

There's nothing wrong with acquiring a target through deception. In fact, I think there's a lot right with it.

Sadly, they don't let me lead you into a nicely arranged explosive deterrent to your pursuit as a civilian.

It's a pity, I was a close rival to a certain historic Sergeant in my ODA who apparently defined the very use of 'pursuit breaker'. I can't get claymores OR WP grenades as a civilian. Alas.

Hasn't so far, anywhere CCW has passed. But there's ALWAYS someone who predicts "wild west" or "blood in the streets" scenarios.


The two operative words in that post you replied to are "I think" - meaning it is just my opinion and I never claimed it to be more than that.

But Japanese society is extremely polite and they are not an "armed" society...


Yeah, sort of. Unless you're a 'hairy gaijin', then if they don't think you understand any Japanese they can be quite rude.

You seem to be forgetting that those occur in places with strict gun control. Places that respect gun rights don't see such shootings.


Except Australia - any reason why you ignore this? Since we instituted strict gun control after the Port Arthur massacre, Australia has not had even one mass shooting.

Sorry to inject FACTS into this conversation.

This is great. Honestly, to me and any sane red blooded american its obvious that 10,000 innocent bystanders accidentally shot is well worth the 2-3 criminals who will get their just rewards from this! MAGA!

Actually, did they put a provision in this to exclude non-white / non-christians? If not then BAD DEAL!

Thanks for posting that. I don't mean this a derogatory manor but it highlights the ignorance.
For a rifle or shotgun there are still background checks from any licensed dealer to be had as well as identification.
For a handgun the process is more thorough and includes a few trips to the police department (in my state).

In order to purchase and pass the background you need to NOT be a felon of any sort nor be on any of the (many) lists. Also not wanted by the law for anything at all. This applies to either.

Conversely, I could just steal yours.


Apologies, I wrote that post in haste as I was getting ready for work. I should have included the statement that the laws I described, COMBINED with the strictness of getting a license in the first place and COMBINED with the limitations on what guns we are allowed to possess - all work together Down Under to prevent the types and scale of crime we see in the US.

Looks like the bill regarding CCW in Alabama has been repealed. The new bill making it legal to carry firearms concealed by Alabama citizens is now on its way to be signed off.

Now only those with current mental illness issues will be required to apply for a CCW permit.

This is a big step forward for making America great again. Now lets see how this affects the crime rate in our major cities. I think it will have a huge impact on violent crime in Alabama. Time will tell.

I am so proud of our Alabama law makers.

This legislation is going to cost Alabama over $20,000,000 a year in lost revenue from the unconstitutional CCW permit fees.

God bless America

It always makes me chuckle when non citizens criticize our gun laws.
They do not, and will not understand; just as I will not understand why they allowed their governments to limit their rights.

Logic and common sense - evidenced by the fact that since we "allowed our government to limit our rights" we have not had a single mass shooting. Not one. Zero. Zilch. Nil.

Facts are facts.

en.wikipedia.org...

Mass shooting



A mass shooting is an incident involving multiple victims of firearms-related violence.[1] The United States' Congressional Research Service acknowledges that there is not a broadly accepted definition, and defines a "public mass shooting"[2] as one in which four or more people selected indiscriminately, not including the perpetrator, are killed, echoing the FBI definition[3][4] of the term "mass murder"

Hence my very first comment in this thread warning that innocent people may get killed due to an argument alone because of this law.

The 2011 Hectorville siege took place between the hours of 2:30 a.m. and 10:30 a.m. on Friday, 29 April 2011, at the small suburb of Hectorville, east of Adelaide in the state of South Australia, Australia. It began after a 39-year-old resident of the suburb, later identified as Donato Anthony Corbo, entered his neighbours' property and shot four people, killing three and severely wounding one. An eight-hour stand-off with police followed, during which time he shot and wounded two officers. The stand-off culminated in his arrest by members of the Special Tasks and Rescue unit of South Australia Police.[2]

You must have missed this bit:

en.wikipedia.org...

four or more people selected indiscriminately


The first two murders you linked were not people "selected indiscriminately", they were family members or known to the perpetrator. The last one you linked was a single death - the others were accidentally shot by the police when they stormed the place.

Try again.

hahahaha
nice exactly what I expected
the ones shot by the police were actually selected?
I see your "selected indiscriminately" and raise you "The United States' Congressional Research Service acknowledges that there is not a broadly accepted definition"

move the goalposts as you see fit
your declarative "we have not had a single mass shooting. Not one. Zero. Zilch. Nil." is bs and you know it

this is exactly why I stated I do not understand you people

No-one is moving goalposts. I am stating facts and the fact is by the very definition of "mass shooting" NONE of those examples you provided are relevant.

I am sorry that facts are getting in the way of your fantasy. Actually, no I'm not.

Yes, all of our unconstitutional laws should be upheld because they generate money for the wasteful bloated State at the expense of the slaves, I mean citizens.

That's not true. That's a rarity. That's like saying all Americans discriminate against asians. You're not talking about their culture, but extant forces.

You get some drink in them and they suddenly love you and speak English.
