Hi there...

2/3rds of all semi-auto gun sales are in the Southern USA... wonder what's up with that?


the american civil war, or at it is known in the south, the war of northern aggression.


Or as it's known in some circles in the north, the great slaveholder's revolt.

In Canada we have a banon full-auto's because they're not made for hunting. They're made for killing people. You need a permit to buy a pump action, lever, bolt, semi-auto and handguns. I believe it's a good thing. Anybody can get a permit. And it keeps the "non-responsibles" away.


Second amendment said nothing about hunting

Speaking as a Brit, imposing stricter controls on firearms - or banning them completely - makes no difference to crime rates anywhere. In any event, it would be a case of bolting the door over two hundred years after the horse ran off. Never a good starting point. It would also lead to a more or less immediate rise in the black market demand for weapons and criminalise a whole lot of otherwise law abiding US citizens. Tighter control is not the answer - better education on the potential devastating effect of gun crime is. Catch them young, educate them so that they know that guns are for self defence only so that, when the kid grows and goes off the rails and has a gun trained on someone in a malicious way, he puts it away instead of pulling the trigger.

For some reason a lot of Brits tend to have an issue with cultures where firearm ownership is more relaxed than here, I don't know why that is. We also tend to see cultures with more relaxed firearms licensing laws as somehow culturally inferior. That isn't the case either. The posts on here about Southern gun culture and growing up to respect the power of the weapon and its effects made an impression on me. I now understand US gun owners a bit better so thanks for that - we generally just get highly skewed arguments over here via the UK media in favour of tighter control in the US so its nice to hear from someone else for once.


You sir, can come on over and shoot with us anytime


Star!

No, it doesn't. But if you study the historical record (particularly in England and Europe) the taking away of guns began with the restrictions placed on hunting and then progressed from there. So hunting is basically an area where you see the disintegration of gun owner rights begin as far as the historical record shows.
