The gun lobby constantly reminds us they are not all gun nuts yet in response to the massacre of 27 people they demand trained marksmen because 'To stop a bad man with a gun it takes a good man with a gun'
This is where the uninformed get confused. The gun lobby..could you be more precise? The nra does not represent every gun owner and never has and using them as all gun owners is rather incorrect..the nra support no one other than the nra and it's members and most of their members I suggest know something needs to change as most of them will be parents too
What the f**k ? That is from their president for christs sake apparently the most rational and best man they have, not really convincing is it ?
ermmmm Nope...it was not the president but one of the chief execs of the nra..again correct information would be usefull
The US is not a young country
Again by country standards it is a young country, I don't think I said it was the youngest, could you show me where i said that because I'm sure I did not..thanks
This whole thing which came across (to me anyway) in Sylus post, 'it's an american problem so you lot don't have a say' kind of attitude,
Well as per the previous questions/statements within this very post..your perception and what actually happened are two very different things
I did point out we are always bitching about the u.s. interfearring in brits business but we seem quite okay doing the reverse..no where did i say no one from outside the u.s. was not entitled to an opinion
ok, fine. I for one think we should just fence the US off and let them get on with it because as far as I'm concerned a country where the rich can literally get away with murder as long as they have a good lawyer, an a country that epouses it's 'divine right' to invade the a-rabs in the name of democracy, and a country that has an human rights record on a par with China, where anyone has access to methods of killing a lot of people at once is the biggest threat facing the rest of humanity.
I wonder being in France wether you studied the french invasions of other countries within french history believing also they were the chosen ones offering divine teachins to the less ignorant? as to arabs, look up france in north africa ..you shall be enlightened..as to fencing a country in..france has been a country most want fenced in for sometime
And Sylus your argument of Coyote/Wolf/Cougar attacks is laughable. I've been looking in a few places,
Fatal Coyote attacks 2,
Fatal Wolf Attacks 0 although some people have died from rabies,
Fatal Cougar 20, since records began around 1865).
That isn't to say people have,'t been bitten but considering the amount of theses animals that are shot for sport each year I think that counts as retribution of a sort.
Could you share where you got those figures? Did they also happen to declare how many attacks were avoided by the use of a gun? I'd be interested to know
I wouldn't call you a pinko...your as clearly passionate about your entitled view as others are, albeit based mostly on emotive non experience rather than exprience and correct information
I hope the cats get well but be carefull...someone will call for a ban on cats soon
