Im from England and I can tell you its not a nice place to live.
Because you cant defend yourself thugs have little to be scared of. They can knock on your door or anything.
Unlike many other countries, you cant own a shotgun FOR SELF DEFENCE, you can only own one if you can demonstrate that you have an interest in the
sport of clay pigeon shooting. Straight off theres the deceipt, everyone is lying, and getting shotguns pretending they are interested in the
Also, you go to jail if you defend yourself with a gun.
The reason I think America should keep guns is because you need them to defend against a corrupt government. Im not implying that your current
government is corrupt, but in the UK they pretty much are. They certainly cant be trusted and theres nothign we can do about it. And they are
stripping more and more freedoms away from us day by day.
I often say that if we had guns we would have revolted already. But we cant.
Guns are not the problem, its people. Society is lazy and decayed. People no longer care about decent society. They have no manners and are rude. Its
the breed of people we create. Its a reflection of us. Banning guns is like sewing up your teenagers mouth because he swears alot. He is still
insolent, rude and troublesome, but you have stopped the swearing, however you have not stopped the cancer of hate and angst that dwells in him.
My point is that guns are a check valve, and people explode, and we learn. All we have done in the UK is bandage over the wound so you cant see the
blood, but the wounds are still there and they rot and go gangreen. People stew at home, they have the same angst and hate as before, but now they
dont have the release valve. So now they silently infect everything around them to a far deeper degree through social malise and discord.
What im saying might sound pathetic, but I think its fairly accurate of how Britain is.
In england we pretty much have a totalitarin govt. You might be able to laugh at that, but we have NO CHOICE. There is no scope for revolution or a
change of government. Throughout history our people have revolted to overthrow evil govts. The French did it in 1789, we did it in 1688 and before.
People have a history of rebelling to overthrow tyranny. BUT WE CANT DO THAT NOW. The club in the hand of the govt is to big.
You cant even plot to conspire. They tap every telephone call and email. Its all traceable. They have shut down all the pubs and made smoking illegal,
places where revolution would spark. You cants make explosives or build weapons. Im not saying we WANT TO , but as a matter of fact WE CANT.
Currently, you have that check. You have guns. You can close your windows and dorrs, say no, and hold your ground. That is worth twice the
unjustifiable murders you get, its worth 10 times that. They are essentially DISARMING YOU. Simple as that.
Once you have lost your guns, the moment you try to get them back they will call you a terrorist.
Our governments are out of control, and nothing is going to stop them other than a general collapse in society such as the Roman Empire. We do not
have the power to overthrow them, which means that bit by bit everythig will become illegal. It will soon be illegal to make a profit in business as
your taking someone elses earnings. Sound pathetic? Lets see what another 100 years of government limitations on our freedoms brings about.
Sorry for rant but no matter how many are killed, you need your guns. Further, gun control just moves the angst and social cancer along the line such
that it doesnt become so obvious. Its still there, and it will just infect society is deeper more pervasive ways effecting more people in ways they
dont understand or percive.
For every Adam Lanza there are 1000 hobos and pan handlers. They'd all love to go on a rampage but they dont because they dont want to kill people,
but they have the same angst. They just deal with it properly.
The government is the problem. I have begun to think of them as a cult. The cult of government. they have their beleivers and non believers. Guess
what happens to the non beleivers.
I dont know why i bother really, ATS sucks donkeys nuts, me me me me.
