And look at pictures of these two writers. They look like typical left wing liberals that would piss on themselves at the sight of anything that might be shaped like a gun. Maybe it's a good thing not too many women would sleep with these guys, maybe that means in a generation or 2, there wont be anymore like them left.
That metro man stuff never did sit right with me. I have a problem with any man trying to look prettier than the woman he's with. Alot of those men, if you want to call them that, can't do typical things like change a flat tire. Because they dont know how or if they did, wouldn't want to ruin their manicure.
The hilarious thing about the second article is that carrying on the VT campus is already illegal. What he is suggesting would not have prevented it, it would have just made what happened "more" illegal.
The right to arm yourself is a defining characteristic of the founding of America. There may be no reason it is the Second Amendment. But it is damn important. God forbid one day we need to rebel against the legally elected government, or defend ourselves against the improbable reality of foreign invasion.
Do people NEED guns every day?? Maybe not, but guns don't kill people the person pulling the trigger does. And if you NEED someone dead for your life sake, for a loved ones life sake, those who obey the laws should never be at the mercy of those who do not.
Sure, London has no guns. I've been led to believe they truly have few guns. Also the stabbing capital of the world. People kill each other however they can.
Just like in the Slutwalk thread. Clothes don't make someone rape and guns don't make someone kill. Rapist rape, and Killers kill.
However, I do see the government trying to steal the 2nd. All the hoops we have to jump thru just to protect ourselves is getting out of hand. I have a grim outlook on the 2nd amendments future. We have gotten too soft.
Too many people forget the purpose of the 2nd amendment is so that we'll have weapons to defend against criminals or so that we can hunt for recreation. The purpose is so, if we need to we can lead an armed revolt against an oppressive federal gov't. Kinda like the one we have currently.
Reddog is right about the original justification for the 2nd Amendment. Consequently I feel obligated to point out, as I do whenever one of these threads comes up, that every single one of you would shit your pants and raise a white flag if faced with combat against, say, Seal Team 6...or for that matter ANY trained United States fighting force.
And there are millions of gun owners in America. If all of them got together for a common purpose, no police force in the country would be able to contain them. Training only can do so much against sheer numbers.
Did you seriously just draw a comparison between the North Korean citizenry and that of the United States? Maybe you should stick to posting in SAMA and taking shirtless avatar pics with your male friend, guy.
And if you are still unclear, see push's post above.
