Our Alcohol problems is cultural like your gun problem....its abit of a complex issue. Your welcome to chime in though as this is a INTERNATIONAL forum.

Oh, the old as time retort of "It's an international forum". Do you have anything original in your retorts.

Oh wait, I just read your below retorts. No....no you don't.

But, addressing your alcohol problems. It needs to be banned, as YOUR society as a whole has shown that due to it being a cultural issue, you and your citizens are not responsible enough to consume alcohol and not become violent. It spreads to your children and they learn that drinking and fighting is the norm, and create violent criminals.
If alcohol were only outlawed there, you would all be safe. And the children would be safe as well.

Sounds just as stupid when applied to other things in life, to other countries.

At no point have I said ban guns in the USA.

If the people outside the US print a firearm, then it is the problem and issue of that person's country. not the US.
The US isn't responsible for the lack of maturity and the terrible actions of others.
That is what is wrong in the world today. You and others like you are just set on blaming others for your errors and shortfalls.

It is like talking to a parrot.
Where you like is oppressive. You have no guaranteed right to arm yourself for self defense.

Actually I have a crossbow. Seeing as 99.999% of break ins here are either unarmed or at worse have knifes Im pretty safe.

And I argue that if my country is opressive so is yours with its detention without trial, warrnetless searches and databaseing of inocent peoples biometrics.

Sorry but just cause you were brought up brainwashed with the idea that you live in "the land of the free" does not make it so. And dont go blabbing about the constitution as obviolsy your goverments not taking notice of it and unless you stand up for it its just a scrape of paper and your country is just as crappy as any other westen govemnet.

O by the way my country tried implementing some of the tyrannical things your govement did....guess what we shot them down....guess even without guns we are better at standing up for our rights


But hey redneck boy you keep telling yourself how great the USA id as your govemenet wipes its arse with your constitution and laughs. Your guns seem to be doing very little in this regard......

By the way if you rednecks and other yanks had actually botherd to read your constituion and followed the first bit "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State" you would'nt be in the state you are in as every US state would have a formidible force that could really scare your govemnet. Unfortunatly you just focused on the secound bit. so now all you got is a bunch of rednecks with guns that talk tough but sit on there arses and do nothing and if even you did do anything you would be so disorganised your huge military complex would crush you.

Yes banning alcohol would be dumb as would banning guns in the USA.
But banning guns here in the UK has been effective due to OUR culture. As I said diffrent country diffrent ways or cant your simple red neck brain comprehend that?

It like the banning of alcohol in saudi arabia. It works for them but would not work for the USA or the UK.

All I read was your constant use of the term redneck towards me, in a derogatory manner.

After that, it was basically "blah blah blah I am mad because I have nothing left to retort with".

Thanks for playing.

Please, for your own safety, stay in your home country and hold tight to your crossbow.

aww you given up guess you cant wrap your brain round the concept of a world outside the USA with diffrent ways and customs.

"I have nothing left to retort with"
Well I posted a huge section refuting your points. I dont see how any of the are invalid.

Nah, just pointing out that you can't retort without using derogatory terms. You know, when a Mod comes in to review it and all, since calling names just happens to be against the rules here.

Nothing was deemed as valid.

Let's sum this up.
You see the printable firearm as an evil thing, because you and others I guess have no restraint or maturity in the technology. So, because you and others can't control it now, are therefore afraid of your fellow citizens having a firearm in their possession. And because it was an American that did this, it is evil Americas fault. You won't look at the person, within your safety netted country as the issue, oh no. That can't be the person. It is the evil gun or printer or designer.

I, could care less what happens inside your country. You and your fellow citizens are treated like children, and you are fine with that. Well, okay then. Have fun with that.

There you go. Retort given, summarization stated and back on topic.

For America, the 3D printed Pistol is great.
For other countries, I guess this applies to you

You want to know why I called you degratory names??? Maybe because you refer to all countrys out side the USA in a degroatory way. For example you call us opressive and tyranical while ignoreing your own nations fault (yes we may be oppressive to you but you are opressive to us just in a differnt way). You can seem to accept or repsect that other countrys have diffrent ways and views especialy when it comes to firearms.

You knock off the foreign country bashing I will knock off the redneck bashing ok? Ceasefire?

As for the topic. Fine let the USA have prinatble guns. It not my country that has a high muder rate. If it makes you happy fine. Im just concerned the printable guns will come over here and make my country a unsafe place. So its a case of how to allow 3D printer without letting the guns in.

It is belittling only if you think it is. Which you do, so it must have struck a nerve.

And you stated the redneck thing, I stated I was. That still doesn't take away the fact that you are name calling, because that is all you have left.

Yes I was wrong on the name calling but I just get fed up of arrogant Americans claiming there country is so called more "free" and speaking down to us when they have just as many problems as most of Europe just in different ways.

And no I have lots left, Ask any question relating too this topic and I will answer it. But because you are so Pro Gun in wont matter what I say as you will just dismiss anything I say as Irrelevant or invalid. You haven't pointed out why my points are invalid. Let list them shall we?

1) America has its own culture what works for the USA wont nessarly work for the rest of the world and vis versa.

2) America is no more free than most western worlds. You have detention without trial, Warrantees searches and the taking and storage of innocent peoples biometrics. UK has none of that but a higher rate of surveillance cameras and stricter gun laws. You have a constitution (which you politician ignore anyway) we have a complex legal system that has helped stopped abuses of power . So give or take really. None really better than the other.

3) This is a international forum so any topic can be answered by anyone from any country. Freedom of speech and all that. (it not just the USA that has it)

4) what good for America is not nessarly good for the rest of the world.

5) Gun control has resualted in a lower rate of muders and serious violent crime in the UK.

6) In the UK we dont need guns (not to say the USA does not) and not haveing guns makes us less safe.

7) Gun are not protecting the USA Constitution as your politicians both democrate and repulican are ignoreing it and no one seems to be stoping them

So why are these points invalid? Explain and in detail.

But, let me be clear again, I could care less what happens in your country or any other country. Your place, your problem.

You cant use violent crime in general and relate it to guns. You need to break it down. Guns will only affect serious violent crime such as murders,rapes and armed robberys ect The fact drunken fights and common assualts are up means nothing pro or anti gun as gun would not stop or cause a increase in those areas. You have to break the stats down. What causes a rise or fall in one area could be diffrent to another. Fact is in the UK stricter gun laws reduced murder rates. It wont reduce common assulats and drunken fights cause that a diffrent issue.

Anyway thought you didnt care about other countrys?

Your opinion is nice and all, holds no weight on anything, but is incorrect for the US.
Your opinion is valid for your home country. Enjoy it.

Yeah, no need to break it down.
If violent crime happens in the US, many criminals are stopped by an armed person.
The fall in crime here in the states runs parallel with firearm ownership increasing.

What and how it happens for you, again, I could care less. But, if you use your country as a shinning example, then you are either ignorant or lying.

What makes something a "right" in a democracy comes down to how much the public support that right. If no one is willing to stand up them the politican will change or just out right ignore it.

Our murder rate is down and so are serious wounds . Other crimes are up due to to other reasons be it drink or drugs or the high unemployment rate.

I have no problem with what you do as long as you dont start illegaly shipping guns over here. Though are you doing hunting rifles? cause im planning to get one. Also what would you suggest for red deer? Also what would be a reasonble price? Just to buy in UK really expensive but I can import one once I get my lience.

I agree. The politicians and Govt have become so far out of control, it isn't funny.
As for the Constitution being written in stone? I never said that. It can be changed, but it needs to be done the correct way.

Well yeah. Saying Guns are the sole cause or prevention of crime is a stupid as saying booze or drugs is the sole cause of crime there are so many diffrent factors.

Well, I think you have come around then. Only a slave is disarmed.

Your not missing much. But its a big problem in the UK. You cant ban it like you cant ban guns in the USA as it just drives it underground.

I agree. People should be able to make their own decision. If someone wants to smoke crack, go ahead. Not my problem, until it becomes my problem. When it directly affects me in a negative manner, like pick my pocket or break my leg, then I have the right to take action.

Guess its just a diffrent way of thinking over here. Not to say your wrong. But if someone throws a punch you either take it or throw one back.

Look, I grew up picking fights with Bouncers on OSU campus. I enjoy fighting. But, now that I have a family, that depends on me, if I fight, I run the risk of getting hurt and not being able to function to support them. If someone wants to fight, my first reaction is to avoid the fight. But if it is pressed, I have no problem protecting myself with a firearm. Doom on the person that challenges me.

Our murder rate is down and so are serious wounds . Other crimes are up due to to other reasons be it drink or drugs or the high unemployment rate.

If, like here, citizens were able arm themselves, I think many criminals would rethink attacking someone. I know that they do here.

Glade we agree again. We are just diffrent countrys with diffrent flaws and good points.

I get that, hence why I never attack someone else's country or their laws. I have no clue what is best for the people in the UK.

Nope not dictateing. what you do in your own country you own problem. My only concern is when the actions or a person in one country affect people in other countrys. But then there isnt a effective solution to that problem.

Oh come on. Blaming another country, in this case the US for the printable pistol, is pretty juvenile. Just because it is out there, doesn't mean others have to partake.

Nope. HK Clones.

cause im planning to get one. Also what would you suggest for red deer? Also what would be a reasonble price? Just to buy in UK really expensive but I can import one once I get my lience.

For deer? I would say anything in the .223, 308 or 30-06. Don't use FMJ ammo, as it will over penetrate the animal and likely just go straight through. Use a hunting round or a hollowpoint or some kind of hollowpoint jacketed round. When it strikes the animal, it will expand like a mushroom and drop the animal.

But the murder rate will go up. Im not talking legit self defence but people getting angry and cause they have a gun on hand useing it in haste. Coupled with our drink problem adding guns to the mix would couse havoc.
I think the UK mindset is we would rather have slightly lower serious violent crime but in exchange have slightly higher minor crime. Im not going to say if that right or wrong but just the way we prefer things.

Actually you are wrong on that, if you are arrested for ANYTHING at all in the UK you automatically have to give a DNA sample. If you refuse you end up being forced to the floor and one taken forcefully, the police in the UK are allowed by law to do this.

So if (in my friends case) you end up being released without charge (ie no action taken, no conviction etc) you're record of arrest is stored forever via the dna sample.

Not even the USA does this (the DNA forced sample).

Up until about 1913 carrying a gun concealed in UK cities was entirely normal, indeed there were adverts in the newspapers about this etc. 100 years later we're at the opposite end of the spectrum.

After two world wars and various social ills it has been bred into people up until now to be a victim of crime.

So what can be done over the next ten to twenty years is incrementally re-arm the populace just like they've been incrementally disarmed.

Start with non-lethal devices, then work your way up to the more decisive stuff. It takes about twenty years to change a generation slightly so within about 2 or 3 generations we'll be back to what is a comfortable level. Perhaps not as even-keeled as the US but somewhere up there.

The government is very much overdue for a paradigm shift back to individual responsibility and a libertarian re-alignment anyway. The USA could lead this but right now home-grown outfits like UKIP are making the start of what will hopefully come.
