Wrong on the very basic level of personal freedom. If more Americans would open their eyes beyond their continental shores, then there would be hope.

I think the problem is a lack of understanding of why we have guns in the U.S. and the second amendment. The entire point of the second amendment is not for Hunting rights or sportsmen. It is there for the sole purpose of disposing of a tyrannical government if the need should arise. The Second Amendment is the "Big Red Reset Button" that the founders placed in the Constitution to make sure a free country remains free. No more no less.
"When the law was passed in 1982 there was a substantial drop in crime ... and we have maintained a really low crime rate since then," said police Lt. Craig Graydon. "We are sure it is one of the lowest (crime) towns in the metro area.

Are you in Canada? Sorry but your speech seems broken.

Look, we can argue with these liberals until we are blue in the face. They just refuse to accept the truth. Just like the refuse to accept the truth about taxation. They have their own paradigm and they are boxed into it. This is why some call liberalism a mental disorder. I do not know if that is true, but I have seen that they refuse to accept reality. I instead they want to immediately jump to some perfect world that cannot exist now.
guns are for the weak , you should be able to defend yourself without a gun.

Please remind me as to whose economy is collapsing ...Canada or the US?
What about Germany? Largest economy in Europe. Social Programs....and beginning to grow.
This is an excellent example of why you should look outwards.
Every country operates differently, some are succeeding others are failing...you want to take ideas from the succeeding ones.

YOUR RIGHTS IN CANADA
First and foremost, remember that the US Bill of Rights ends at the US/Canadian border. Canada is an independent and sovereign country; the US constitution and US laws have no force in Canada.
There is no equivalent to the US Second Amendment in Canada. Nor is there an equivalent to the US Fourth and Fifth Amendments; Canadian firearms laws permit warrantless searches and seizures and compulsion to testify against yourself, overriding language to the contrary in the Canadian Charter of Rights and Freedoms.
There is no Right to Keep and Bear Arms in Canada
Your RKBA rights cease the moment you step foot across the border!
Both points have been made and continually ignored by the gun hating liberals on the site.

I'm not sure if anyone has mentioned this, but can someone tell me of the last time that they've known a law abiding criminal? Criminals do not obey laws.
Therefore, laws have no affect on the criminals. Thus, laws only affect law-abiding citizens, not criminals. As to what many other people have said, guns don't kill people, people kill people.
