I find it really funny how Americans are ranting on and on about with the line “how dare a Scott, say this”. Under your liberal ideals I have the right to freedom of speech, even if i don’t like it very much. Is it not very hypocritical of you to all flame me for what is a personal opinion and this hypocrisy is multiplied you saying on one hand “don’t talk about our nation like that” but then on the other hand lecturing me on my own history.
Really all I have basically said is Guns are bad and in my opinion America should get rid of them like so many other states. Sure some of the Arguments against this are strong, but I still hold the fundamental believe that guns are evil and as such hold no place in a “civilized” society. It’s a bit like abortion for me, there are some very good arguments as to why abortion is justified however as it is inherently evil it therefore has no place in a modern society.
I am not a coward for saying it like I see it, it show’s strength and courage, not weakness. The idea that I am less of a man who cannot protect himself just because I don’t pack a 9mm round my waist, rather I would argue it’s the opposite. Its not like you are all living in the wild west any more, its not like government its about to chuck you all in FEMA camps and the Russians don’t plan to invade. I think you all need to take a leap into the 21st century.
Fair enough you love you guns, keep them, I don’t care. But know this, in my view they are the most evil disgusting objects ever crated, an abomination of man’s genius only crated to pursue evil and immoral quests. They are the tools to which the most evil of evil men have killed and ruled, the iron fist that chokes all of humanity, they fuel war and genocide they are the tools of the devil himself. Those who advocate the use of said weapons and fail to recognise this are just as evil as their guns and should be ashamed.
Ask yourself if the millions upon millions of mothers, fathers, sisters, brothers, wife’s, husbands and grieving children justifies you carrying around your evil little toy’s so you can look like action man. Get rid of them all, if your government has to, search every household in the country for the horrid things.
