But it really surprises me how no one here gives a hoot about minimizing gun related crimes when that's all that you Americans keep complaining about. Jesus christ...


Hmmm all i hear complaining are the usual liberal press since it's something that they can sensationalize for days on end. Quite frankly nobody has any control over a lunatic bent on killing whether it's with a gun or a bomb or even a rock.




So tell me what you think about my new plan...

Much of what you speak of is based on complex non-absolutes. For example, what ideologies are acceptable and which are not? Who's to decide? Who's to judge the deciders?

What you describe also sounds really expensive. Ongoing nationwide evaluations for gun owners? Again, why not cure cancer or solve motor vehicle fatalities? Bee stings kill more people per year than domestic terrorism.

There is a lot of value in having a society full of fear, however. Unless you're not going to benefit from that, you're simply not doing sound logic/math.

I didn't say that at all. You are attempting to put YOUR words into my mouth. Aurora was a tragic event brought on by a mentally unbalanced individual. You are in OMG panic mode to relieve all *sane* people of their right to own arms. I'm one of those sane, armed people. You need to get a grip Sweet Pea...we aren't all out to get you.

Okay hun. I'm not in panic mode (I doubt you are psychic so stop assuming).
For now my renewed plan stands because... well I haven't heard a single problem with it yet (other than your belittling terms towards me.)


Sweet Pea is a Southern term of endearment. Not a belittlement. OK, let's take a look at your nifty gun control plan. Give me a breakdown of the cost analysis of implementing such a plan as you propose. What governmental body would have jurisdiction in levying fines/punishment. How long do you think it would take for representatives from both sides of the political isle to garner enough votes to push your agenda. Would it take martial law?

This is the tip of the iceberg Sweet Pea....just...the...tip...

Oh I'm only trying to find a way to minimize crimes by firearms.


The best way to do that would be to institute a mandatory death penalty for all crimes where a firearm is involved. We haven't been able to keep criminals from getting guns, so let's just declare "open season" on criminals that use them.

See ya,

Nice. I like it. You have made me renew my plan. My new plan is as follows.

1. Divert some of that massive defense spending to eliminate classes and create one homogeneous class. Everyone has more than enough to have a nice house and then some. This will reduce if not eliminate crime because well people won't have a reason to resort to crim in the first place.

PROBLEM SOLVED.

I don't think anyone doesn't care about minimizing gun crimes, we just care more about making sure our freedoms stay intact. Especially at this point in time as it seems like they are being chipped away a bit.

This plan is doomed to failure also, in 10 years the classes will be back because the intelligent, personally motivated people will find ways to take money from the foolish, dumb or the lazy.

I would think. One with your apparent mental acumen, would be in high demand to whip up solutions to your own Country's social problems. Is your Country so perfect, they have no need of your prowess. Should I feel humbled, that you have turned your full attention to my Country, with half baked ideas of how to mess with my Constitutional rights.

Hell, that's what's happening in the UK right now! How's that working out for ya? The last time I checked, the crime rate was still pretty bad over there.

Well write into the constitution (not in my words obviously) the message that it is immoral to seek domination over your fellow man and that if this were to be tried by someone or actually happened, everyone has an obligation to prevent the "attrocity" and restore society to the already proposed homogenous class of before.

"Power and domination over your fellow man shall be stopped by law enforcement and military."

Write this into your constitution. Make it not erasable by any proposed laws or of the likes.

Do you really think that's what all the scum in parliament are actually with all their souls trying to achieve? NO!

Come one man. If they really were serious about that, it would have been done.

That was written into our Constitution, way back when we kicked you guys out of our Country all those years ago....duh...


Our current President may think he's a King...but he's not. Constitution trumps King....

I have a better solution: make everybody drink vodka instead.

What?

Oh, sorry. I thought you meant gin-related deaths.
