My wife is pregnant. We're going to have our first child, soon. You're mistaken to throw us all into the 'let children die' category. I value
human life. There is nothing, absolutely nothing, more precious in this world than life.
I believe in freedom. Freedom to say what I want. Freedom to believe in what I want. I'm very liberal in that regard.
You're not in the United States. I don't know what kind of 'international' news you read, nor what you know about America's history. I don't
expect you to understand the way I, or the way many American's, think. Truth be told, I can't understand your thinking, either. Not completely,
anyway. I assure you though that I am trying to.
I strongly believe that unless American's are armed, our Government will begin stripping away our rights. More so than they are already doing.
'Freedom of Speech' would go out the window very quickly. The only way to protect our way of life, and to assure that this country never becomes the
next Nazi Germany, is in my opinion, for us to be armed.
I would only use my weapon in self-defense, in whatever form that it may take. I would never go out and shoot someone out of anger. I am a law-abiding
Look at the UK, Britain specifically. You need only look there for the true sense of 'Big Brother'. Look at Australia. They practically made every
gun illegal. Now look at them. They are moving towards a 'controlled' society. Internet filtering, internet monitoring, cracking down in dissidents,
I will never give up my right to bare arms. I will never give it up, because I truly believe that without it, we'll lose control of our Government.
Absolute power corrupts, absolutely.
