A good example for you to use would be the korean shopkeepers during the LA riots. They were able to protect their community in the middle of a very
dangerous time for the city. They couldn't stop the riot but they could stop the riot affecting them.
BINGO! That is it! Without the means to protect yourself....your are subject to the whims of others! The idea that some people...ESPECIALLY IN
EUROPE....have that a Government that does not allow their people to own GUNS is a Good Idea have taken a SIP FROM THE COOL AID CUP! Think about
this...many Governments have actually CONVINCED THEIR PEOPLE that only the GOVERNMENT should have the right to have GUNS and that the people will be
safer if only CRIMINALS have GUNS!
This is made even more stupid by those who basically say to us...people in the United States...HEY LOOK! I AM DEFENSELESS! I CANNOT STOP ANYONE
BIGGER THAN ME WITH A PLASTIC SPORK FROM MUGGING ME OR RAPING MY SPOUSE OR KIDNAPPING MY CHILD! HOORAY FOR ME AND THOSE LIKE ME BECAUSE WE ARE
PROGRESSIVE AND THANK GOD WE DON'T HAVE FREEDOMS LIKE PEOPLE IN THE UNITED STATES!
This type of thought is INSANE! If I were an AUSSIE I would be REALLY PISSED OFF! I mean...do you REALLY want to leave the responsibility of
defending your Wife and Kids or if a Woman...your Husband and Kids to the response time if making a Phone Call is even possible...to the POLICE? In
the United States...if someone breaks into your home and you are fearful for your life or lives of your family...IT IS COMPLETELY LEGAL TO SHOOT A
PERSON INVADING YOUR HOME DEAD! No charges will be filed against you. The person does not have to have a Gun or Knife or even a Plastic Spork in
their hands...if they break in while you are in your home and you tell the Police...I was Fearful for my Families and my LIFE. CASE CLOSED!
Since my town is a place where EVERYONE OWNS A WEAPON...we tend to leave our doors and windows unlocked. I could leave the keys in one of my Vehicles
and have the engine RUNNING...and not worry as I went into a store for a Coffee in the Winter when it is very cold in Massachusetts and I am
defrosting my vehicle with the heater.
Communities like mine where a KID at the age of 11 takes part in the Local Police Stations Firearm Safety Course which they do every year as Moms and
Dads bring their Sons and Daughters to the station in order to take a several day course on Firearms as the KIDS and ADULTS are taught EVERYTHING
THERE IS TO KNOW ABOUT HANDGUNS, RIFLES, SHOTGUNS as well as how to treat every weapon as if it was LOADED whether it is or not and explain all the
different ways they can be loaded, unloaded, cleaned, the guns Safety location, how to properly stand when firing the weapon, how to hold it when
Hunting or Transporting or Showing a Weapon. They Teach everything about Firearms and thus we don't have KIDS getting accidentally SHOT because they
found a GUN and are showing it to their friends and don't treat the weapon with RESPECT or SHOOT their friend because they didn't know how to check
if it was LOADED! The more people know and understand about anything that is potentially FATAL...the safer they will be.
To my knowledge...there has not been a Gun Related Accidental Fatality in my town....ever! This program has been going on before they even had a
Police Station and a Firearm safety course was held in the GRANGE BUILDING back in the 1800's.
To think you are safe because people are not allowed to have GUNS is like saying...I am safer because people in my country can't own a KNIFE!
Or...in my country...People are not allowed to hold a ROCK OR THROW IT!
I feel sad for those who do not get it. Split Infinity
