I am constantly hearing from folks like Manta who base their notions on US gun laws on what they read from the US MSM... which is laughably inaccurate.
I get particularly irritated with foreign commentators who display their ignorance by quoting a NY or Illinois law and assuming that law impacts me in Washington State...
Our friend Manta strikes me as a fellow who's intensely embarrassed by the shameful and cowardly manner in which he and his fellow subject kneeled before their government and justifies that weakness by trying to convince himself that Americans will do the same... When our time comes.
It's pathetically weak behavior and bellow my standards for acceptable debate.
Now come on Tack, that smacks of arrogance I am sure your not that guy!
No debate is beneath us we should always respect an alternative view.
Hell guys like you and axxe have changed a lot of my opinion on gun ownership in America. You have challenged my views and I have soul searched alot. I came to the conclusion I had deeply been influenced by my gov and media.
As a gun owner in England I have always disliked and regretted our lack of challenge on our restrictions.
But your country is still young and we have had more battles than you can shake a stick at. It just takes a lot more for us to get riled up.
We are more accepting in this period of our history.
That being said a lot of it is down to misinformation and propaganda and it's only with speaking and debating with are friends like you guys that we get perspective.
We are not going to agree on everything but we can influence eachother through good reasoning. If we become over agressive in our arguments it closes people down and that just ain't healthy.
