you've found a haven to your liking. It would, however, be appreciated if you would stop trying to make the US like England or Canada. The American people want their freedom. They don't want government beaurocrats telling them what they may or may not do.
The idea behind the right to bear arms was so that the people could resist government tyranny. It was not the support of a militia. The need to resist tyranny entails the need to defend yourself. These two needs have not, and will not, change. It's about time you realized that.
I mentioned this above .. but let's bring it up again. Gun control. For decades the left has been eager to disarm the American people. Democrats and liberals have been dedicated to the idea that only government should have guns, that the people should totally and completely put their right of self defense to government. How would you like to have been one of the people in New Orleans who sat out the storm in their house, only to now find to now find predatory looters trying to come through the front door ... and no police help available. One shot through the door to take out that first looter and the rest would run. They're looking for safe targets, not homeowners with guns. And what about the hospitals? I'm almost dead certain that the rules in these hospitals forbade any employees from having guns on the premises. Now we hear about doctors and nurses moving patients to higher floors of hospitals while looters make their way upstairs. Do they wish they had guns now? How about that children's hospital that was under siege a few nights ago?
Now you know. In times of disaster and civil unrest the government isn't - can't be there to help you. You will, at least for some period of time, be on your own. You have a responsibility to your children, to your family members, to protect them. Are you up to it? Do you have a gun?
wow i wonder if a stun gun would help with all the looters?
we wouldnt want to hurt the scum would we
just think about it
