you are using circular reasoning . like most americans you are deluded into thinking the united states government is still on your side and has altruistic goals. Since WW2 the united states government has been manipulated and controlled by the bankers of europe via corporate action, who have already emptied fort knox. you wont see any recent audits on fort knox . prove me wrong. Now that they have devalued the american dollar by 95% we are ready to see the next agenda, which is to bring in the amero, when the dollar collapses after this stock market crash in 2008. they have gotten rid of guns in australia, europe, and the united states so they have a better chance of not having the military and police wiped out by bands of rebels who know what is happening. dont forget, the united states was originally founded by 'rebels' and would have been considered traitors or dimwits by those in england.. that is what made america free. it is only since they brought in the federal reserve act in 1913 did the american people loose control of thier own money supply. JFK was shot because he brought in executive order 111110 which gave the people the opportunity to use real silver backed us dollars instead of the globalist fiat money which is being used today. do you know what fiat money is ? immediatly after he was shot, the operatives in the government moved to cut off the supply of silver backed dollars and you can no longer get them from the us government. the executive order still stands, but there is no one in washington putting it in place. most americans have been lied to since birth, and end up like you..in delusional bliss, but the # is going to hit the fan soon and you will know what the gun laws have been about. i know this will blow you away and you will dismiss it a BS but, that is because you are like most americans - in denial or just ignorant of the facts..

American Guns are the only thing right now that stands between you, and total totalitarian lock down.

Do me a favor, put a sign on yourself or your front door advertising that you don't carry or own any guns... we'll see just how long you last.

I'm not a republican or a democrat... I don't vote, I am however an Iraq/Afghanistan Veteran, I served as an Infantrymen... I've earned the right to carry a gun, to not vote, and nobody's going to take that away from me... period.

This has given me a great idea for a tshirt. I have some guns and believe in responsible ownership but I need to wear this hippy tshirt. It will say " I DON'T PROTECT MYSELF OR MY HOME WITH A GUN"
I doubt this will cause my home to be invaded. I also doubt I could unlock the guns fast enough to be rendered "not lasting" when they attack. I'll make a sign too, and we will indeed see how long I last.
I have been is some rough situations, not as rough as yours, but I have never needed a gun to survive. Less than 1% of the people I know carry a gun around.

intresting thread...

I think the OP is thinking in good cuase, but is misguided...


Scared of gun owner... come on... quit regurgitating whatever your university professor says...

You alsoo show that you have no grip on the real world... 'What if no one had guns'

what! Take england as an example, they has the most strict guns laws in the western world, but what has this caused? The highest knife crime rates in history...



I can understand if you hate America, if you go to public school, watch TV, read all this nonsense on the net, you are going to hate America.

Thats alot of brainwashing...

When i was young, i moved out of the USA, and lived in a crappy 3rd world hell hole... Now, Uber-Anti-Americas get mad at the mention of the word, 3rd world, mostly because they have never been to one...
But go live in a country that has a Socilist Totalitarian regime in charge
Go live in a town where there is 3 million people and 50 cops
go live in a town where every store has an bodyguard with a shotgun and bulletproof gear


Once you have lived in a 3rd world hell-hole, yuo realise all the little things that you have taken for granted here in the USA.

So if your a gun-hater, bible-hating, Member of the Anti-America party crowd... Have fun, i know there is alot of you...
Just remember, when your ass is in trouble, its going to be the people that you HATE that are going to save you...

The people who belive in God and Guns are going to save those that don't... again...

If no-one else had a gun, why would you need one? Why not take away your right to own one? What's next? Don't take away my right to own Inter continental Ballistic Missiles


Removing weapons from the populace only takes the weapons away from the law-abiding citizens. Criminals obviously don't care about the laws and will have guns regardless. Besides, what's wrong with owning guns if you're responsible?

Besides, if it's a right of ours to bear arms, then why take that right away? I personally don't own any firearms, but I like to know that it's my right if I so choose.

What are you basing your views on? I certainly hope not a conspiracy theory website, or any other website or blog, for that matter. Imo, America houses some of the most diametrical-minded groups of people on the planet. Just look at the current election, to see how much people are NOT just blindly following whatever is said and done, in a passive, sheep-like mode. You really don't understand this country, if this is what you think. Everything speaks out against your opinion, from the publications, the politics, and even the music. I'd love to know where you formed this idea that Americans just blindly buy everything told them.

I myself don't own a gun, but have fired plenty when serving in the military, and am not opposed of people owning them (I may pick one up in these times of growing unrest). While the ideal society of "no one owns a gun, so no one needs a gun!" is a quaint idea, the fact that those who oppose the law or would use them with ill intent will get them regardless, makes that an impossibility.

Is that not the case in the UK? Only criminals have guns? Is it a bloodbath on the innocent over there?

Just curious, and I hope the OP finds this relevant but. How do you 'patriotic americans' feel about laws against flag burning?


I don't agree with flag burning, however IMHO, if you want to burn a flag that is your right. If we outlaw flag burning, then where's our freedom of expression?

Your living in dream world if you think the politicians are your first line of defense...

My Guns are my vote... because when gun sales go up... that's the message.


So, what say you... about walking down the street at 3:00 in the morning with a sign advertising that your unarmed?


Why should I advertise that I'm unarmed? Anyways, I'm a big guy, can take care of myself without a gun. Trained in Mauy Thai and MMA.

This credit crisis will bring out the best in us so we

For Christ sake how big of a fool does someone have to be NOT to have a gun?

You know what who cares... take the guns!!! I'll just go buy them on the black market, it's a plus anyways because then you don't have to pay money to have the damn thing registered!!!

Hey yeah!!! TAKE THE GUNS AWAY!!! BAN THEM (PLEASE)... that way the black market for guns will explode... I might be able to make some money off that, and you people thought the Prohibition was bad...

" Guns can be used for things other than just for protecting oneself from other humans.. "


I just got a flash of Homer Simpson changing channels on T.V with his gun.


Does the defense of the constitution ever get evoked by the NRA when defending semi-automatic weapon ownership. Or is it just not polite to remind the sitting government of that ?
Is the gunownership debate, framed only between home protection and hunting ?

So...by that logic...citizens went out with their own guns and stopped the L.A. riots? It seems to me that right here in good ol' America, they got to do whatever they wanted in the face of armed police, and armed citizens. Owning a gun is not patriotic. Justifying the right to own a gun is. Just having one does not. If you think the OP is that far off, you have not been talking to the nuts that I know, that you can see on this board...stockpiling weapons and hoarding ammo. For what? Who are they planning on using it against? Foreign invaders? Our own police? Seriously, please look into the L.A. riots and tell me why all the armed citizens of CA did no better than the unarmed ones in France?


The LA Riots happened in the GHETTO. If it had spilled over into the suburbs, there would have been a completely different outcome. Those in the ghetto were just trying to make a point, KILL WHITEY. BTW, should we outlaw bricks? Considering that guy they pulled out of his truck and slammed a brick into his skull on LIVE TV.

If it's not guns, it's knives. Not knive's, then spears and arrows. Not those, it would be clubs. Not clubs, then rocks. Not rocks, then bare hands.

The problem isn't weapons. The problem is humanity's inherant disposition to violence. We have always been this way, and we always will be. With my gun, I at least level the playing field if someone so chooses to 'schedule a game.'


And then there were the Koreans (think) that stood on the rooftops of their stores with guns in hand. Hmmmm, if I remember correctly, their stores were not ransacked and they didn't have to fire a shot.

A number of years ago, I got robbed THREE times, by some thugs that lived down the road. Reported it to the cops after the first two robberies and they did nothing. After the third time, I bought a gun, set up a target in the field next to my house and every afternoon at the time they drove up the road on their way home, I was out blowin' holes in that target. I never got robbed again.

It is just like that in the UK... exactly!!! If you have little miss muffet walking down the street at 2:00 am in south London or whatever, with a hand cannon in her purse, the thugs would think twice next time they attacked a woman... and I guarantee you the crime rate would go down.

I think the fact that some people have added me as a 'foe' without engaging in debate illustrates my point perfectly!


Interesting. As of my posting this, your profile lists you as having one foe?

I have not read all the pages of this thread, but on page one someone asked your location and I saw no answer?

There is no way to answer any question because you ask no question. You are looking for people to either agree or disagree. You don't define what it is about patriotism that bothers you other than expressing your distaste for guns. Your only purpose seems to be to start an argument between America supporters and America haters.

ATS is far from representative of Americans or their "Patriotism". ATS members are not even in the ballpark of the norm. Not knowing if you are in or have ever been in the US, I don't even know what you are basing your opinion on?

What we are is over 300 million unique individuals, with individual beliefs and personalities. That pretty well sums it up.

This is probably the most polite troll thread I've seen recently. You insult a country and its people, then you try to be so nice that nobody can call the thread for what it really is; trolling for an argument. You constantly say how wonderful you think Americans are but your "Patriotism Terrifies Me".

Perhaps you think we should all hate our country? We should hate the fact we live in such a wonderful place that millions risk everything to get here, even if they have to do it illegally. Why do you suppose they do that? Because the US is a terrible place to live? Hmmm, I wonder?

Guns? I live in this wonderful place where game to hunt is abundant, so I can enjoy the health benefits of eating wild game and fish as a large part of my diet. It is a shame so much of the world has not cared for its wild food resources so that their people could enjoy a more natural diet. How sad. Our herds keep getting bigger and healthier, while much of the world has eliminated their wild herds.

If I wake up and discover somebody is breaking into my house and I call the police, they will arrive in anywhere from 5 to 30 minutes. In the meantime an armed criminal could do anything they want to me and my family while I wait for the police to arrive. That is why the police mainly deal with crime after the fact. They don't stop crime from happening, they can't. If I have a gun handy and know how to use it properly, I can stop the crime from happening in the first place and possibly save my life or my families lives. The bad guy looses and their are no victims. If they make it illegal for me to have a gun, then only the criminal will have a gun. It seems simple enough to me.

Good luck with your trolling project. It seems to have garnered you many responses. Perhaps you will have some luck getting people to hate their own country even though it is free and has an incredibly high standard of living. We all have things we would like to see changed, but we are not foolish enough to believe that change comes from hate and bigotry. Real change comes from love of country. Bashers and Haters just add to the problems, they don't solve them. Sitting around whining and complaining never got anything accomplished.

If you are not an American, let us know where you are so we can compare? If you are an American, stop whining and get involved.
