The fact is, when someone is going to kill, they're gonna do it regardless of whether killing is illegal or not.
i agrea with this statement. which is why i would go to great lengths to make it harder for them. i speak of the ideal so i guess i failed to factor the rational into my writing. its a case of up the anti isme. insane killer has a knife you can feel pretty safe that he will be stopped before the real travesty can occur. killer has a fully auto. there’s a few down before you’ve even had chance to reach for where ever crevis you stash your fire are.
speaking of which is it true that you can carry around any sized weapon you want in America as long as you have it in full view?
From what I understand through my own international travels, the international travels of family and friends, and my interactions with foreigners both near and far: "the rest of the world" doesn't hate us, and if they do its not because we have a powerful military. In fact there's a great many nations and people who are VERY grateful that we have the military strength that we do, and they recognize the great accomplishments Americans have achieved both socially (human rights) as well as technologically (automobile, railroad, airplane, transistors, internet, etc). We are still a great nation, despite what you hear on Fox news
Its these things that make us great, that also make certain groups hate us. Radical Islam for instance, doesn't like women exposing skin, or voting, or talking to men even. North Korea hates us for letting our people vote, among other reasons. .
but on a small scale people like me hate the lack of morals we see perpetuated on our sky televisions to the next generation. and the direct lack of for site as a society short of personal instant gratification. but that is not me hating the American people. just the way the world is naturally unfolding with America as a state at the helm. im sure i wont be alone here in hating America as a state. you guys are all cool would not trade you for a ham sandwich.

for what's on your tv set-
y'all are adults, take responsibility
and stop blaming others .
guns force the strong to treat the weak respectfully-
even governments tread carefully when the citizenry is armed.
bullies and robbers and rapists all fear the armed citizen.
the best evidence of gun effectiveness is the fact
that although we have many millions of guns here
almost none are ever used to shoot a human being.
their mere existence and presence is deterrent enough
to keep hundreds of millions of us safe every day.

I would like to have a love gun that when fired makes the target feel the love of the universe fully upon them and changes their point of view so they can have compassion, love and healing for one another.
Until that model comes out I'll take my Savage 30-30 deer rifle, and my kmart special Remington semi-auto 12 guage, great for trap and duck. Can't choose just one.
Have been bow hunting most mornings this fall and cant wait til I can get the rifle out.

Barring that, i've always been fond of the pantzooka. Yes, that's a cannon that fires pants at people. Naked people.

For Beast: I think its all a power struggle, and yes I am sure there are some old timers who appreciated us doing what we did for them years ago, but I know of countries we havent done jack too who hate us for being an empire building country.
To the anti gun lobby: One question always seems to make the most staunch anti gunners change thier stance. What would you rather have in this situation?
A drug crazed violent escaped rapist murderer or any common street thug loaded up on go go rocks comes into your home at night. He doesnt know if youre armed or not, so he has already accepted the fact he may have to die or kill someone, which is usually the case for home invasions in this country where folks are known to be home and the criminal still comes in. So now its you, your family or the bad guy.
He comes in through a window in the living room or kicks the door in lets say. Your wife and baby are in danger of losing thier lives. Do you wish you had a gun now, or are you now perfectly happy in waiting for the police to come save you? Do you think anti gun speeches, kind words help this man change his mind? Do you think you can appeal to his sense of fairness by telling him youre not armed?
I know the answer is you wish you had a bad ass firearm to kill him before he kills you and your family..anything else is bullshit. If you believe all the anti gun bullshit youre in essence turning your familys and your own life over to the local politicians and police. I for one own many firearms, and I do use them for self and home defense. I feel very comfortable knowing I am doing everything I can do to help keep my family safe. I have taken many safety courses and passed a license to carry a concealed exam. I have never had to shoot anyone, but if it came down to it I know I could if saving my family is part of the equation.
Now lets talk about the school killings that were mentioned earlier? Which one should we talk about?
June 11, 1964: Cologne school massacre. Armed with an insecticide sprayer converted into a flamethrower, a lance and a homebuilt mace, 42-year-old Walter Seifert entered the Katholische Volksschule and opened fire on the girls playing in the courtyard. He then knocked in classroom windows with his mace and fired inside. Eight children and two teachers died, twenty children and two teachers survived with very severe burns. After taking a cyanide pill, Seifert died the following day, in custody.
December 6, 1989 : Twenty-five-year-old Marc Lepine killed 14 women and wounded a further 13 people at the École Polytechnique at the University of Montreal in the worst school massacre in Canada’s history. He then took his own life. In a letter he left behind, he indicated a hate for feminists as a motive for the shooting. It remains to this day the worst massacre in Canadian history.
April 26, 2002 : Eighteen people died when an expelled former pupil went on a shooting spree at his school in the eastern German city of Erfurt. Masked and dressed in black, the gunman walked through classrooms killing 14 teachers, two schoolgirls and one of the first policemen on the scene before taking his own life.
1 September 2004: A group of pro-Chechen armed rebels took more than 1,200 school children and adults hostage on September 1, 2004, at School Number One (SNO) in the town of Beslan, North Ossetia. On the third day of the standoff, gunfire broke out between the hostage-takers and Russian security forces.
I guess you were talking of VT and Columbine, sorry. If there were armed teachers or any armed security nearby the VT and Columbine massacres could have been prevented. The above school massacres could have been prevented as well.
Ill always remember a saying from an old guy I used to work with. He said locks only keep honest people out. The same holds true for gun laws. Honest folks abide while the criminals do what they are expected to do, break laws.
In the U.S. massacres the common theme is they were in places where guns werent allowed. So an honest student or teacher who carried a gun legally would have to put it away before entering school so they didnt lose everything they invested in thier educations or careers. The anti gunners have made it an unspeakable act to carry guns in some settings. The punishment is severe for honest folks.
The killers could care less. Declaring any place a no gun area gets folks killed. Killers wouldnt try that shit at a military school where everyone was armed. You dont hear of many folks trying to exact revenge on swat teams that put them in jail or raid the jail they were housed in. Nope, they pick on those they know cant defend themselves.
So to me, the answer is arm everyone and see how much more crime rates drop.

The Spaceballs' weapon of conquest, Spaceball One, is a powerful spaceship. The Spaceballs' attitude toward others is expressed by the ship's large bumper sticker: "We brake for nobody."
The ship's absurd size is a frequent point of references:
The ship is so large that it contains a shopping mall, a zoo, and a three-ring circus (complete with a freak show).
The ship takes about 1 minute and 47 seconds to cross the screen at the beginning of the film. This is emphasized by the music theme (based on the musical theme from Jaws) which stops and resumes again several times, each time growing louder and louder, implying that the orchestra is getting frustrated with the ship's seemingly endless length.
President Skroob is once forced to jog to the bridge in order to arrive before the end of the film. He references this by saying "This ship is too big. If I walked, the movie would be over."
Spaceball One is capable of traveling at four different speeds: sub-light speed, light speed, ridiculous speed, and ludicrous speed. When going into ludicrous speed all crew members must use a seat belt for their own safety. Ludicrous speed results in the ship leaving a trail of plaid, parodying the "warp trail" seen in the first few Star Trek films and 2001.
Spaceball One's secret weapon is its ability to transform into Mega Maid, a colossal cleaning woman holding a gigantic vacuum cleaner used to extract air from other planets and take it back to planet Spaceball. It can also reverse that process, expelling air, going from suck to blow.
Spaceball One, upon arriving at Planet Druidia, transforms into Mega Maid with a vacuum cleaner, which starts to extract the air from the planet. Lone Starr uses his Schwartz ring to reverse the procedure, and sneaks through Mega Maid's ear to the central brain area of the ship to activate the self-destruct button. As he is about to press the button, Dark Helmet appears and challenges him to fight. They proceed to duel using lightsaber-like weapons emanating from their Schwartz rings, until Dark Helmet tricks Lone Starr into losing his ring. Yogurt then speaks to Lone Starr, convincing him he doesn't need the ring to use the Schwartz. Using this advice, Lone Starr summons a mirror to reflect Dark's attack and inadvertently press the self-destruct button, causing chaos aboard the ship as Mega Maid counts down to self-destruction. The heroes then escape as Dark Helmet, President Skroob and Col. Sandurz, failing to make it to any of the escape pods in time, look on in horror. The resulting explosion causes the three along with parts of Mega Maid to crash-land on a neighboring planet, much to the horror of its residents.
Dark Helmet: The Space Balls' second-in-command, is an obvious parody of Darth Vader. He resembles Darth Vader in appearance, but is much shorter, has a much larger helmet, and wears a tie. (However, he changes into a khaki uniform and an equally oversized pith helmet during the desert scene.) He speaks in a deep bass voice and breathes audibly, as the helmet hinders his breathing. This often causes him to lift his visor, revealing his bespectacled face and his intentionally normal voice. Helmet is the commander of the Spaceballs' "Imperious Forces" , and commands the flagship Spaceball One . He uses The Schwartz to discipline his subordinates, not by force grip (as with Darth Vader) but by crushing their testicles with the Schwartz. He enjoys playing with Spaceballs dolls, taking special pleasure in acting out a scenario in which he seduces Princess Vespa, but is embarrassed when anyone notices his playing. Helmet declared himself Lone Starr's "father's brother's nephew's cousin's former roommate." which he sums up as making them "absolutely nothing".

one of the worst kind
as it's not even your own thoughts / words.

but don't abuse this forum by posting

rocket man i strive for a world where you can feel safe in your own home without having to reach for your loaded gun every time you hear a squirrel.
i strive for a world wear different communities can live in harmony without being made to feel like there in constant fear from the youth of society like we in England are led to believe.
its a day dream i know and one that isn’t going to get me anywhere in this repulsive world so i was going to leave you with some gun/ war focused comedy for your viewing pleasure and leave it at that. but your right hipp that link was very strong war propaganda i should have looked at the screen more instead of laughing my ass of. but lets face it every day when you look at the news what do you see

but lets face it every day when you look at the news what do you see
Entertainment meant to sell TV ad time.
Namely, blood and guts and bad NEWS. Because that's what sells.
If someone breaks into a house and the homeowner draws their shotgun but never has to fire because the intruder, after his bowels empty, hauls ass, do you think it makes the nightly NEWS?
No. Why? No blood and guts.
A man walking with his wife is approached by a few gangbangers. He shows his concealed pistol and the gangstas high tail it.
Front page story? Hardly.
Situations like these occur more often than you think. But you never hear about them because they are kind of boring and not much of a story.
