well i think thats my cue to leave.. do enjoy killing urself..oh and by the way in Australia we do have guns but they are not in every house. we also use them for hunting but our laws make it very tough to get a gun because you cant have a criminal record..not even for drink driving.also wen these laws came in the government had a nation wide buy back scheme..so whatever gun you owned you got payed to give it in to be disposed of.

However alien this might seem, I love and am proud of my government. I like Bush. However this nation's government is better than W. Europe, Canada's or Australia (no offence). We are a pure democracy, not socialistic. Socialism has taxes that are too high, weak armies, less of free enterpise (not saying there is none, just less), govenments that are too strong, and prices that are too high for phone bills or something along that line. Having the government touching more things will cause them to be distroyed. No offence intended to people but thats how I see it.
Btw, I wouldnt mind a natonal healthcare system if that 40% of funds was not squandered.

I agree, aim is everything. Keeps us from hitting innocent bystanders during our daily shotouts
According to data from the National Center for Health Statistics, in 1999 about 38% of the deaths that resulted from firearms injuries were homicides, 57% were suicides, 3% were unintentional, and 1% were of undetermined intent

I love America because I can meet weird people in the streets. There's a lot of weird people here, that's what I like about it. I love people with extremely weird behaviors.

What I love about america is stories like the ones eck and intelgurl have told us. You can actually make a life here by yourself. Without being related to someone, or doing something corrupt, or selling drugs, or screwing anyone else over. Very inspiring... I admire you both.
