With the recent rise of gun control topics here on ATS one can't help but notice everyone has an opinion and thats great. You also can't help but
notice how many U.S. History experts there are here on ATS that have never set foot on U.S. soil. More than one thread I have seen has had several
British subjects trying to give class in what the founding fathers meant when they wrote the 2nd amendment..now don't get me wrong I don't mind
talking about it or gun control with folks across the pond, but when I start getting the attitude that we are somehow morally not up to par as those
elsewhere it's like a burr under my saddle.. If you don't like us fine..why visit threads talking about issues that don't affect you?
SO I have been thinking...they either have classes around the globe on U.S. History, 2nd Amendment, U. S. Constitution etc..for this many people in
other nations to have such a vast working knowledge of it, and to understand so well the mindset of our founding fathers...............
Are they jealous? America has long been seen as the last bastion of freedom in the world, the rights and liberties afforded here are like no other
place on earth.. are these armchair experts just jealous that the nation they live in long ago removed the last glimmer of freedom and replaced it
with a video camera?
Is that why they are so concerned with our gun rights, because they have none? What else can it be? It's not like I can go out in my yard, fire my
gun, and hit your country. Your not going to see mobs of armed crazy american rednecks walking down your block..
Don't blame us...we didn't make you give your rights away...you rolled over and gave up without a fight on your own
Here are a few pointers that may help a few of you jealous ones out when posting
IF YOU HAVE NEVER FIRED ANYTHING BIGGER THAN A PELLET GUN, DON'T TELL ME WHAT KIND I SHOULD OWN
IF YOU HAVE NOT HAD THE RIGHT TO OWN A GUN IN THE LAST 20 YEARS, DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT GIVING UP MINE.
IF YOU LIVE IN A COUNTRY WITH MORE VIDEO CAMERAS THAN PEOPLE, DON'T TALK TO ME ABOUT GIVING UP MY FREEDOM
AND UNLESS YOU HAD A FAMILY MEMBER THAT DIED FOR THE CAUSE OF CREATING THIS NATION OR DEFENDING IT, DON'T SAY THE 2ND AMENDMENT IS OLD AND
OUTDATED....YOU DON'T HAVE THAT RIGHT
