You're a waste of time, I am not reading any more of your drivel, the first go 'round was laughable enough, don't try to weasel your way out of the fact that you were wrong and got bit in the ass the very next week.
The irony is that if you have a gun, you and your family are infinitely more likely to end up the victims of violent crime.
Funny. I have had a gun, of one type or another, my whole life and NEVER once have I, or anyone around me, been in a situation of violence despite traveling through over 30 states in 25 years while in my own country. I have been to Oakland, I have been to Detroit, I have been to Sacramento, I have been to Atlanta, I have been to Indianapolis - no problems with violence on my person or those around me. Funny. I was armed most of the time and NEVER had violence commited against me, nor did anyone around me. Kind of shoots the hell out of that theory there doesn't it?
As a matter of fact, since it pertains to you pointing towards America as the source of violence for your wacked out BS.
times I WAS in situations of violence were when I was overseas and not allowed to carry a weapon outside of the military base I was on. Oh, and that little time in an unnamed South American shi'itehole where a CAR BOMB blew up outside the hotel I was staying in.
Have a look at the latest post, I've tried to address some of the points made.
Blah, blah, blah - you have already proven to be a tremendous Troll, stop pimping your little blog that is nothing but the spew of someone far removed from the issue at hand and with a view of the problem as broad as a 6 year old looking through an empty toilet paper tube.
And, as to the massacre in Germany, this is not and has never been about bashing any particular nation; I chose America because it has such widespread and consistent gun related violence. One or two incidents in nations with a stricter approach to gun control do not constitute evidence of a failure in gun policy.
A weapon in the hands of a criminal is still a weapon in the hands of a criminal. You think Germany was an isolated incident? How about climbing down from your Ivy Tower and taking a little trip to Africa, or South America. Hell, take a trip to Thailand, it's cultural and "approved" with the tea and biscuit set now, so you can be trendy. Take a look around sport. Just because the reports are easy to get out of America, don't kid yourself into thinking the weapon is the problem. People are killing each other the world over - and they are doing it with guns and they are doing it with cars and they are doing it with stones and clubs and bats and gang beatdowns and in some cases, even lowly little Kitchen knives...
Speaking of which, how's that whole 11 burrough knife elimination plan going for you over there? Seems a former professional boxer got stabbed to death at a bus stop in one of your "Knife Free" zones by someone with a knife and died, on the very way to see his new born baby.
Looks like Knife Control is working out just fine for the criminals. Could that be why half of England is in an uproar and calling for your local police establishments heads on pikes? Because banning normal, law abiding citizens from carrying knives is making them prey for criminals who don't respect the laws in the first place??
You are so far in over your head in a situation you know little to nothing about the whole idea you tout yourself an expert of anything is laughable. Hopefully you get to experience first hand what it is like to be the victim of a crime so you will actually begin to understand what being a victim is all about.
Here's a simple equation for you Muppet:
Someone, anyone, convinced they are going to do violence ( rape, robbery, homicide, take hostages, whatever ) has made up their mind they are going to do it. They have armed themselves with whatever means they are going to do the attack with ( guns, blades, bats with nails in the end, socks with cue balls in them, water bottles filled with ammonia and bleach, whatever ) and goes into an unprotected environment like a children's school or a Church. What is the likely outcome??
Now, take that same individual, with the same drive to commit the same crime(s). Equip them the same way and let them wander into a police station. What is the likely outcome??
What is the difference in those two scenarios??
Now, go get back on your soapbox and try not to get a nosebleed from the height of never having accomplished anything of importance in your life.
Oh, and PS - Site some damn sources for your so called "evidence". You're running your mouth like a Jabberwalky, but you have yet to "prove" a God damn thing.
