    I feel very bad for you being in the heart of the European Union whose objective is to control all its countries as one country and disarm everyone.

    I hope this will be better understood. My English ist bad.

    Hello All,

    sorry, my English is not good.
    A friend in New Jersey Gun Forum tried to help us.
    He wrote:

    My German is pretty lousy, but if I understand it correctly, he's proposing that statistics, and facts be used, and not simply the rantings of the anti-gun crowd. If you want to help them, simply click the button that says, "Ja Ich understanten diesen vorschlag" Which means "Yes I understand this proposal.

    After all, these folk are fighting the same fight as us, but don't have groups like NJ2AS, the NRA, or a constitutional amendment to help them. Remember what happened in Britain, don't let it happen here, or elsewhere!


    I hope this will be better understood.
    Thanks for any help.
    Goodwin

    I'm sorry I know absolutely no German :eek:. However, you have very manageable English so no worries. I wonder if debating for firearms rights in other countries is as interesting as it is here. The premise remains the same, but the thinking changes substantially.

    Good luck to those of you in Germany! Your going to need those guns when the Euro tanks just like us with the Dollar!

    Why don't you remind your fellow Germans what happened after Hitler banned firearms.

    The press thinks we are Nazis and criminals, but we are just shooters.
    Our government has called the people to make suggestions for improvement. The 10 subjects with the most votes will be discussed in public.
    This is a chance that we have been waiting a long time.
    We are currently in fourth place, but still have to hold out until 15 April.
    We are grateful for every vote ...

    Voted. Gotta support fellow shooters, no matter where they are. Gun owners are under constant attack from the politicians and in Europe most don't have a constitution that protects us in any way. From what I've read, the Swiss and Hungarians have pretty good laws and political atmosphere regarding gun ownership but in many countries it is getting just ridiculous. In Finland, we don't even have political parties that truly support hunting and shooting sports. The ones that did vote against the last ludicrous new gun law, did it mainly to gain new voters. There are individual politicians that support gun ownership, but they can't do much alone if their colleagues are only running after votes.

    Thanks AleksiR, and thanks to all who will vote later.
    If someone comes to Germany, contact me. I spend a beer.

    Please give our call for help to everyone you know.
    We need you!

    AleksiR- this from the home of Simo Häyhä???

    They should be ashamed!

    Goodwin- apologies for my poor German- Wahlstimme ist registriert worden. Ich habe ein kleines Stück der Wand von Berlin. Das ist was geschieht, als eine Regierung den Leuten nicht vertraut.

    I didn't understand a word you said. :D Where on earth did you learn German? (and don't say Germany. :D)

    Ok, I voted. At least I think I voted. :confused:

    If I had spent more time in Germany, my German would be much better.:p

    Spent some time paired up with a Fallschirmjager unit back before reunification. I said (poorly) - Vote has been registered- I have a small piece of the wall of Berlin- that is what happens when the government does not the people trust.

    Thats a little easier to understand. :D You have a piece of the Berlin wall? Cool!

    This is probably going to be a jumbled mess (especially since I know literally no German, and had to use a translator), but it's worth a shot.:D

    Bitte verzeihen Sie mein Deutsch, ich weiß nur sehr wenig Deutsch, deshalb musste ich einen Übersetzer zu verwenden.

    Ich habe meinem Freund gewählt. Ich wünsche Ihnen alles Gute und hoffe sehr, dass Sie Ihre Rechte nicht auf von Ihrer Regierung mit Füßen getreten. Wir wissen, wie Sie sich fühlen. Unsere derzeitige Präsident möchte sehen, dass unser Recht, Waffen zu tragen weggenommen wird, und hat sogar in illegalen Operationen, die seine Sache helfen würde beteiligt. Diese illegalen Operationen versorgt die mexikanische Drogenkartelle mit einer Menge von Waffen. Ein unschuldiger Border Patrol Agent, und mehrere mexikanische Staatsbürger wurden als Ergebnis getötet.
    Halten Sie kämpfen für Ihre Rechte, aber niemand hat das Recht, sie zu nehmen.

    Spend some time in Bexar County, down around Seguin, and you can practice your German and have BBQ and Shiner at the same time. :p

    Kein Problem mein Freund. Was immer ich kan mache andere Shütze und Schützin zu hilfen.

    Yes they should. The politicians seem to forget that our national defence is based on a well trained reserve and they are making it very hard for that reserve too train on their own.

    Sorry, was a double post.
    I should be careful when I updated a page.
