Well, I can't refute your opinion on my nation's psyche, after all you are entitled to your opinion. However, I can pick everything else apart.
Yes.... I'm sure the government and NWO are planning raids on every home in America as we speak, good job you have all those guns
I've never written anything that gives the impression that I believe in a NWO or that the government is conspiring against me. They have bigger fish
to fry at the moment, I'm not an tin-foil-topped idiot. I'm a person who believes in personal, inalienable rights. Rights which include defending
yourself from those in powwer, IF
it were ever necessary. I'm not saying it ever will be but, that doesn't mean I shouldn't be allowed
to be prepared if it makes me feel safer.
Differently, sanely..... yeah, I guess.
No need to offend me. How is it insane to believe that I, as a human being, should not be subject to any form of oppression, regardless of whom it
comes from? Just because there are some stupid people who'd like to shoot up a mall does not
make me or my countrymen insane. Are you going to
tell me there are no criminals in Canada? Need I remind you how much illegal drugs are imported from your country into mine? I don't exactly
appreciate that, to be honest. Would it be right of me to view the drug problem in the US as expressly your fault because you are from Canada and a
good portion of the drugs in America come from there? Of course not. Excuse my language, but that is f*cking retarded.
Armed (gun) burglary is extremely rare in the UK.
But yes, you're right.... this is one instance where people could justify a firearm.
We had a case over here of a farmer who was burgled by two guys and he shot and killed one.... he went to prison and the country was split on this.
My view was.... they broke onto his land.... he was like 60+ and had every right to defend himself, even if it ended in the loss of life for the
criminal.... you make the choice to rob someone, you pay the consequences.
I have my own protection at home.... not a gun, we don't really do or need guns here, but believe me...I'm ok if someone breaks in.
Obviously, I agree with you on this one. As far as I'm concerned, everyone everywhere has the right to defend themselves with any nearby object. Be it
a gun, a rock, a car, whatever. You have the right to defend your life. Anyone who would have you believe otherwise is not the type of person I'd want

Four times more likely....
We're not talking food poisoning or branches damaging property.
We're talking death.
People rely too heavily on a gun.... It's not the answer.
As someone said when this shooting happened with Jared..... AZ is "gun-state" and why didn't anyone pull out their gun and shoot him the minute he
Guns make everything safe and great right?
Point is they don't.... and 2-3 UNARMED people tackled him.
These things happen.... the fact is this guy bought his gun legally... and then went and shot people.
If you are too afraid of guns, then don't use them but, don't tell me I'm insane for wish to have one. No, guns do not make everything safe or great.
In all truthfulness, the world would be much better off with out them. However, it's completely naive to think just because guns are illegal or even
harder to obtain that the wrong people wouldn't still have guns. Nothing would change except innocent people would be getting wrongly charged with
illegal firearms charges.
I applaud anyone who uses nonlethal force when available. A human life is more valuable than anything, even the life of Mr, Loughner, a murderer and
clearly quite a crazy person.
I apologize for my delay in replying. My damn power went out in the middle of typing that monstrous wall of text.
