Much of our society is guilty of this lest anyone think I am talking to someone in particular. I often try to think of how fortunate I am but until I
really am on the street I have no idea what it is like.
LOL, NEO that was smooth,
I agree with you entirely, I honestly do. If you think I don't see things like this it shows you don't think too highly
of me. Thats okay. People do buy into ideologies, but some people actually firmly believe certain things that no one has taught them or described to
I grew up in New Zealand where gun's are typically restricted to farmers and handguns are illegal. Gun violence is almost unheard of so I naturally
wonder why it would not work here in the states. I formed this opinion on my own through personal experience and by no other means.
In an extension to what NEO has posted, I have never been threatened by a gun or been held hostage. Until I am, I really have no room to talk about
their necessity to others. Its like a male saying abortions should be illegal to a woman who was impregnated after being raped. However, I do have my
opinions and until I have reason to believe otherwise, they will remain steadfast.
BTW, sirCyco, I bet I value the constitution more than you do. Freedom is the most valuable thing a living being is entitled to.
