We should NOT give up our guns and become more like the UK
The UK has the second highest overall crime rate in the EU.
Britain is the most violent country in the EU.
In the UK, there are 2,034 violent crimes per 100,000 people.
In the US, there are 466 violent crimes per 100,000 people.
Proving once again that an armed society is a polite society.
Gun control means having two hands on your gun.
Missouri Democrats Introduce Legislation to Confiscate Firearms - Gives Gun Owners 90 Days to Turn in Weapons
Whites are far more likely to shoot themselves, and African Americans are far more likely to be shot by someone else.
What's happening in Cyprus could happen here if we didn't have guns.
The European Union and the European Central Bank and the IMF have just advocated the confiscation of private property.
The European Union has confiscated the private property of the citizens in Cyprus without debate, legislation or Parliamentary agreement.
Nothing you have that you cannot (or will not) stand in front of with a gun and defend is yours. If you're either unable or unwilling to die to keep it the government will steal it to give your property to someone else, including someone else who did an irresponsible or even criminal thing.
If the IMF thinks that it is a great idea to steal from bank accounts to solve a financial crisis in Cyprus, why wouldn’t they impose a similar solution in other countries in the future?
I know liberals want gun control but shouldn't they arm themselves for protection against the homophobes, the bigots, the pro-lifers, the misogynists, the racists, greedy, and every other derogatory term they can think of?
so ive been hearing this a lot since the sandy hoax was carried out..
what do you think....are you ok with your young/old child being conditioned to accept the "fact" that a mad gunman could come into their school at anytime and kill everybody?
is there really anything you can teach them to prevent death if the day should come?
or is there a secret agenda behind all this
http://frontpagemag.com/2012/dgreenfield/europe-has-same-rate-of-multiple-victim-shootings-as-the-united-states/ " Newsmax: The media typically spins these mass shootings as an American phenomenon. They suggest we ought to be more like Europe, with strong gun control, because then we would not have these problems. Is that true? Dr. Lott: No. Europe has a lot of multiple victim shootings. If you look at a per capita rate, the rate of multiple-victim public shootings in Europe and the United States over the last 10 years have been fairly similar to each other. A couple of years ago you had a couple of big shootings in Finland. About two-and-a-half years ago you had a big shooting in the U.K., 12 people were killed. You had Norway last year [where 77 died]. Two years ago, you had the shooting in Austria at a Sikh Temple. There have been several multiple-victim public shootings in France over the last couple of years. Over the last decade, you’ve had a couple of big school shootings in Germany. Germany in terms of modern incidents has two of the four worst public-school shootings, and they have very strict gun-control laws. The one common feature of all of those shootings in Europe is that they all take place in gun-free zones, in places where guns are supposed to be banned. Newsmax: So can you give us a correlation between crime rates in jurisdictions that try to ban concealed guns and the crime rate in those that do not? Dr. Lott: If you look over past data, before everyone that was adopting [concealed carry laws], you find that for each additional state that adopted a right-to-carry law . . . you’d see about a 1.5 percent drop in murder rates, and about 2 percent drop in rape and robbery . . . Just because states are right-to-carry doesn’t mean they’ve issued the same number of fees. You have big differences in states’ training requirements. Newsmax: Would it be a good idea to have teachers who have concealed carry permits in the schools, to better protect kids? Dr. Lott: I’m all for that. I’ve been a teacher most of my life. I’ve been an academic. I have kids in college still, and kids below that. It’s not something that I take lightly. But it’s hard to see what the argument would be against it. People may not realize this, but we allowed permit-concealed handguns in schools prior to the ironically named Safe School Zone Act. And no one that I know has been able to point to a
The purpose of the right to bear arms is to democratize power. Power corrupts and absolute power corrupts absolutely. Freedom consists of the distribution of power and despotism consists of the concentration of power. Power concentrated in the hands of the few will create a world which we will not want. If guns are broadly distributed so that everybody would have their own gun — then if somebody did try to do something really terrible, then the collective will of others could overcome that bad actor.The same can be said for companies that want to control our food supply (Monsanto) or given exclusive rights to genetic engineering, etc.

One of the accusations leveled against people who like guns and want nothing to do with gun control, is that they are violent. If you do not want any restrictions placed on gun ownership you must be a violent person. The fact is, however, that the exact opposite is true. People who want to own guns freely, are not violent people. If gun owners were violent, there wouldn't be any gun control advocates.
