"Everytime I think I'm out they drag me back in!"
Frazzled UBM: We don't have to get together I'll send you a pic if you like, half the girls in North America already have one
The pen is mightier than the sword, and ideas are more dangerous than the tools used to carry them out.
You guys are making yourselves look ridiculous (at this moment I am not talking about gun control) Because some of you are so anti-american/antigun that you don't want to say this guy had mental problems. Do you hear yourselves??? he said jehovah told him to do it... he didn't pick up a gun one day then it magically took over his person like the ring in lord of the rings. Anyone who is saying he didn't have mental issues needs to stop and think for a second. He shot, two completely innocent people, on live tv, and he filmed it himself!! I see this as such bias that you all would rather criticize someone like myself who owns a firearm than admit this person was sick. Think about that.
Someone also said that basically not being an anti gun proponent is like being in a cult... well I honestly believe that believing that the police or the government are forever and always going to look out for your best interests is more like being in a cult than anything.
I had extended (by marriage) family visit from Australia. They were so paranoid being in america, they thought everyone was going to shoot them. They were dead serious. Everyone was laughing at them. How is not bias that their impression of ALL OF AMERICA, all 320 million plus, is like an action film, or represented by this nut jobs we created a platform for. They inevitably always reference some other rampage shooter or shooters. They want to make a scene. And they do. Guns don't cause them to lose their mind one day, and they go on a shooting spree, no the decide they want to F%$# the world, they want their name to be remembered like Eric & Dylan. Then they go find guns.
I have lived many places and experienced many things. Liberal gun laws, and the strictest in the nation. And let me tell you in NYC getting a gun is near impossible. I had a cop living above me, I asked him about registering a firearm, he said don't even bother. He said it was near impossible for him to get one for personal use. Also the people in New York feel much the same as those of you in the UK, Australia, etc. The mere thought of owning a gun causes them to faint. And stil somehow NYC has GUN VIOLENCE.
I hear it over and over on here, america has guns, so gun deaths are high. Murder is murder. al ot of you say a gun is more deadly. I still say ideas are the deadliest, especially bad ones. Jones town how many people were killed in a few moments with out a shot being fired? Oklahoma city? 9/11? Bad ideas will lead people to find the way to cause destruction and loss of life. Bad ideas are more powerful than the tools.
Honestly I hear all the comments on here and its sounds like people that rave that POT IS A GATE WAY DRUG, if you smoked pot, you r gonna do heroin. yep, it causes refer madness! I knew a kid, smoke pot, chopped up his family, I saw it on TV must be true. We should ban pot because it makes you chop people up into little bits in a drug induced rage, and then makes you do all other drugs and become a delinquent. please...
Guns are no more causing these idiots to carry out insanity than pot is making addicts use other drugs and commit heinous crimes.
Fact: Gun violence has been decreasing over the past two decades in America
Fact: Gun ownership has increased, there are more guns than ever in America
Now I will now be so naive to say that More Guns=Less Violence based on those facts, but to me it makes the claim that more guns in america is adding to the violence also seem naive.
I just see less practical talk on here about gun laws, and more anti-american sentiment which i feel is unwarranted. When columbine happened america changed, now you probably have many other brewing waiting for their chance to be the next wacko on CNN. And they are going to ILLEGALLY go find the guns they want to do it. And there is not a damn thing I, you! or any law can do about someone determined to cause chaos!
Now... Cappy and wingcommander, lets go grab a Budweiser, beat our wives, salute the confederate flag, and measure our small d%#s in our big cousin humper pickup trucks!!
