Firstly, this thread is just my musings, I don't expect any Stars, Flags or even replies.
Secondly, I would like to say that I'm quite disappointed in ATS. Sandy Hook seems to have driven a wedge between the US and the UK on these
I'm from the UK and I think that yes, we should be allowed to debate this. It's not our country, sure, but we are all human and Sandy Hook has had a
profound effect on the people of the UK also. I'm a parent and I cannot even imagine how people directly affected are feeling.
I would like to make a few points if I may.
Piers Morgan is an arse, that's a given I think! What I have seen of his antics lately I do feel slightly inclined to side with him. He asks
questions that no-one seems to want to answer and when they do they fire back the same old stagnant arguments time and time again. His interview with
Alex Jones was a complete joke, AJ made a fool of himself and has probably done more harm to the current battle to save the 2nd amendment.
If there is a gun ban, you need to point the finger at AJ, he made gun owners look like loons.
The Shapiro interview, Sorry but the Constitution was not "slammed" onto the table, him referring to it as "your little book" was offensive
Your calls to have Piers removed from the US presents a further problem. No matter if your right or wrong about the call to have him shipped off do
you not see that, if your successful you would be making the same mockery of your own constitution as the anti gunners. How, you say? This would be
an attack on the first amendment.
The First Amendment (Amendment I) to the United States Constitution is part of the Bill of Rights. The amendment prohibits the making of any law
respecting an establishment of religion, impeding the free exercise of religion, abridging the freedom of speech, infringing on the freedom of the
press, interfering with the right to peaceably assemble or prohibiting the petitioning for a governmental redress of grievances.
In the same context that you have the right to bear arms, to protect against your own government, I guess that this means that the Gov wouldn't attack
an armed population? Correct?
I suppose that this is similar to how the USA has never attacked or invaded a nation with nuclear arms. So is it any wonder that countries like Iran
want the bomb? To protect itself from tyranny??
If you guys are allowed guns why cant they have a bomb? The principal is the same. No arguments please about Iran being a country etc etc The
principal IS the same, self defense, protection call it what you will.
Also argue what you will about them being unstable, but as we all on ATS know, don't trust MSM!! Especially when you consider how crazy the Israelis
are and no one seems to mind them having big bombs!
Anyway, I fully expect to have loads of abuse over this so fire away, I wont be replying, not for a while anyway!
These are just my thoughts on the burning issues of the day.
My heartfelt love and prayers go out to the families of Sandy Hook, its community, all victims of crime across the globe and to the service men and
women of our nations and their families.
