    When Nations Ban Guns

    Interesting video

    http://www.westernjournalism.com/wat...ion-bans-guns/

    When a facebook friend of mine saw it, she replied, "Rubbish! etc etc" - She doesn't even live in the US, she's in Europe lol

    I replied that the Gun related homicides are only as high as they are in the US because we have to include Chicago and other no gun zones in our stats.

    Educated people that have researched gun violence know that gun murders mostly involve black people killing black people in urban areas. Over half of all gun deaths in the US each year are suicides. Black people are 7 times more likely to be gun murder victims than white people. These kind of stats are not broadcast in the main stream media, and are ignored by gun control advocates. The problem isn't regular joe's buying AR-15's or carrying their handguns concealed. The problem is a continuous cycle of poverty in black neighborhoods that breeds crime and violence within the community. No gun control advocate will be able to answer the question of how you get illegal guns out of poor neighborhoods where the majority of gun murders happen. They continue to sell the idea that tougher laws that prevent good people from getting guns legally will somehow work on gang members in Chicago.

    The facts and statistics are on our side, guys. Source: 10 Things You Didn't Know About Gun Violence in America | Views About Issues

    That's an old video, but what it shows me is a bunch of very weak minded people that blindly and willingly turned in there weapons because there government band them and made guns/weapons illegal. There comes a time when people need to grow a pair and stand up for them selfs

    Let our government try that here and see what happens.

    In Switzerland, every adult male is required to be in the militia, and is issued a fully-automatic Sig assault rifle (or a Sig pistol, for officers) to keep in their home. When they "age out," they can keep their weapon, though it has to be converted to semi-automatic.

    The murder rate in Switzerland is about half that of England.

    That will be the day that the bureaucratic types who wandered into law enforcement will have their comeuppance. *knock knock*... "Excuse me, are you Mr. Six-Foot-Four-Inch-Three-Hundred-Pound-Angry-Biker? Well, I have this form here indicating that you purchased a $3000 Les Baer Custom pistol in 2007. I'm afraid I'm going to have to ask you to turn that over to me immediately."

    Rubbish is a commonly used word in the UK.
    Firing a suppressed is on my Bucket List.

    I'm just a spoke in the wheel but not a big deal.

    America...a Constitutional Republic. NOT a democracy as the liberals would have us believe.
