Here in the UK, like anywhere else, someone might break into my apartment tonight. Hopefully this won't happen, but if it does it seems likely that
he won't be carrying a gun. Why? Because he's almost certain I don't have a gun either.. even though I could. In reality he probably wants to steal
my stuff and get out... it's much easier that way. Besides, carrying a gun like that would send him to jail for a long time if caught.
In America the thief is unsure. He comes armed, legally too. He hears noise and he pulls it out. Thankfully the home owner is protected by his gun,
but the thief has the advantage of preparedness... his night vision is already attuned and he's aware, not just woken from sleep.
Do good gun owners have some magical ability to always be that touch smarter, quicker and more accurate than criminals? It would seem that way given
the rhetoric on here.
The looney tunes anti-gun lobbyists living in disneyland are so full of crap that they don't even begin to know how much they smell. But I will be,
in the spirit of ATS, be civil towards you.
1. Your entire post DOES NOTHING about the act itself - crime by humans - and instead focus yet again like many of your kind on the TOOL.
Is is no wonder the crime rate is so high in your country, simply because your kind who had disarmed citizens, had implicitly told criminals that it
is ok to trespass on personal property or kill as long as one carries only a knife. Violence is ok, as long as it is NOT gun violence, to ensure the
statistics look good.
How more stupid can one get???!!!!
2. In Texas, the criminal who wishes to trespass will have to think twice, for even grandmothers carry guns. Guns are not the solution to eradicating
crime. No where do gun enthusiats made such claims. Guns ARE ONLY deterrants to crime.
In US, it will take the insane and the desperate to try. But in disarmed nations such as UK and Aus, it is open season for criminals to take anything
they wish from homes and commerce, even kill, SO LONG as they carry knives and not guns, thanks to deluded folks like you and the pope.
3. I hope that you and your kind may grow up wiser, for it's tiring educating people like you to focus on the human, instead of the tool.
Enlightening the pope would be a hopeles cause, for he is far too old, too senile to lead, and just too bad many still worship him and influenced by
him, even when proven that he is flawed in certain aspects.
