No problem i am happy to exchange views. I like views from other countries on their experiences of firearms law and order etc PS It does irritate me when a person posted that where i live is a dump especially if they are not educated enough know the difference between the republic of Ireland and northern Ireland.

Before i am asked do i wear a seat belt the answer is yes. For two reasons one its illegal not to here and the odds of being involved in a car crash are a lot higher than being shot at. And there used to be a lot of bullets flying around here.
Out crime rate is lower because we have the right to carry. Australia list their rights to bear arms and their crime rate went through the roof.

It's interesting that you say that. Yes our Murder rate is higher than the UK but if you look at more than just what's in front of you then you'll see that over the last hundred years our murder rate has decreased vs. the UK's murder rate has rapidly climbed higher.

This video sums it up nicely.

This is my opinion and my opinion only:

Attention all non-Americans. Thank you so much for your concern regarding our violent crime and death by firearms rates as well as your opinions on how "you" believe our country would be safer or better with suggestions on changes to "our" bill or rights and constitution.

Thanks, but we got this...

I don't think America would be safer with any chances to your rights and constitution.

Quote. UK Annual crime figures show that the homicide rate has fallen steeply over the last decade, from a high in 2002 when 172 deaths were identified as likely to have been caused by the family GP Dr Harold Shipman.

Basically, the problem is not the laws or the weapons, it's the people. People now days are getting more and more selfish, lazy, and just plain mean. People need to start spending more time appreciating each other and what we have. Especially our families. We need to get our priorities straight. And this is a problem all around the world.

It's not hard to see that. I mean when you have 11 states that have more people on entitlement programs then you have people working in the private sector, there's an issue. Last I heard was for every one person working they are not only supporting their own family but also close to 2 other people. I understand that some people need help. And I'm always willing to help. But with how it is right now, I know that there has to be another way. I don't think the government should help. Communities should be who help. Then at least we know who we're helping. Much like here on FTF, need help? I'm sure someone here will help you. As long as you've shown that you're worth helping. at least that's just MHO.
