not a gun fanatic, but a freedom fanatic...if the 2nd amendment goes, then the rest will follow...that is why it is the 2nd amendment, to back up the first...and all the rest...
you can flame all you want, but your opinion of what works in your country, doesnt really have any bearing here in america...

BTW I should clarify. I own a Fire arm Possession and Acquisition license. Have several guns in the gun cabinet. Some nice ones 30-30. 12 guage, 270, ...Ruger 22..
-Just in case you think that people who believe in gun control don't own guns...That's a common misconception from NRA type people
imo you don't need an AR 15 to protect yourself. Learn to aim with a real mans Gun.

we can respect your opinions but we do not have to honor them or even give them any real thought. Guns are in our constitution. Ive used them for hunting,and defense and would likely been dead if i had not had one. A Gun is a tool. it does not want to do anything because its a in-animate object. Criminals almost never buy a gun legally because really using a gun that is registered and serial numbered with its striations on record is a really stupid move right?
You who are not residents of the US who want to see us without Guns have no ground to stand on really because your fellow countrymen gave up your rights to own any firearm you wished to have for the promise of protection. HEre is what we do not understand. Why do you think your society is so perfect that no guns are needed by anyone in it?.IF you really believe in no guns disband your militaries and declare a end to guns .
Really If you live in a country that does not allow you the freedom to have a weapon to defend yourselves immigrate to the US.
Yes, you would've likely been dead, as it's in the constitution that you (among others, mind) have a right to bear arms.
If no one had this right, maybe you wouldn't likely be dead without your ol' six shooter.

Now, you know as well as I do that these operations you mentioned are on a far, FAR greater scale than this latest tragedy. Yes they do these things, no they don't stop at just a dozen people.
I think to be honest you thought I would never have heard of those... And could then have fabricated your own results.
You think I don't know how bad governments can be? I currently live under a government which not one person who I've spoken to voted for. I know how corrupt these people are. That doesn't make what you said any different, the government do not pull off such low scale tragedies as this one.

In response to those saying no one in America needs a gun:
I need mine to protect my family from crazy people with guns.
I also need mine so I can lay a bloody deer carcass on my kitchen table, to cut up in to steaks to feed my family that I am protecting with that same gun.
That is my reason to own a gun. And it's a watertight reason. Because it is a simple and pure reason.edit on 5/12/2013 by MadDogtheHunter because: (no reason given)
