I get it - it is because he's from the UK and he's come to the US and is yelling ban guns.
The colonies had to stockpile weapons in secret remember? The redcoats didn't want them having guns.
It's sorta like Muslims that come here, then want to force their women to wear burkas and force on them this weird honor code they brought with them.
We say, why come to America and try to change it into what you hated that you left?
Alex feels that this is an American issue, and that foreigners need to shut up about it, as maybe they might like to take a peice of the US for
themselves, and it might be easier if there were no guns anywhere.
Think...Red Dawn stuff. It would be a lot more difficult to invade anyplace that has an armed populace. I mean, especially with China owning so much
of our debt, for them to be saying that we need to get rid of our guns? No, don't think so.
I mean, it's just a mindset of protecting one's own. I notice that gun owners and 2nd amendment rights tend to really feel like it is a deep part
of their psyche - this idea of defending one's own. My friends who are more anti-gun tend to think everything is fine we just need more peace and
I'm not saying conservative and liberal, because there are a LOT of liberals in the south that are pro-2nd amendment. I thought liberals LEARNED
that a long time ago when this very issue turned the south from blue to red.
That's right - take GA for instance. It used to be solid blue. Liberals start yelling gun control and NO ONE here hardly likes that, except maybe
in the cities. Republican ranks SWELL.
