    That's exactly why I'm offering to take it off his hands...

    After all, guns should only be in the rights hands....

    It's all about safety.

    And the children. Let's not forget those political footballs.

    We cannot clear your island theory for takeoff because their are so many island nations around the globe...with various levels of gun laws... that have much higher rates of violent crime and gun crime than even the USA...... much higher.

    Make a specific point. Tell us which island nations are overall better off than the U.S. and why it is because of their gun laws.

    I didnt say any island nations were better off.... I said japan had stricter gun laws and less crime and you said it was because they are an island. I then pointed out that there are other island nations around the globe with varying degrees of gun control....from lax to restrictive...and yet they all have huge violent crime problems.....

    In other words.... I grounded your "Island" excuse for Japan.

    I sent your passengers back to the concourse to await a later flight.

    You see Robo.... there are a lot more factors to violent crime....gun crime... than armed or disarmed citizens...... you got places with a lot of poverty..like detroit and wash dc...... some of those caribean nations....Brazil..... and you just cant sit there and say they would be better off with or without armed citizens on the street. There are many other factors involved.

    You also cant just blurt out that Japan being an Island is its reason for low crime. You cant even say its because of their immigration laws either.... because in america.... While I know immigrants here cause a lot of crime..... its the americans who descended from euro stock that are the psychopaths, mass murderers, serial killers....child molesters..... etc.... and these are also the average joes who fool everyone till they finally snap.

    Im not against gun ownership either..... I own guns....I own highly illegal guns.... and the only way the government is getting them is to pay me fair market value for them.... unless they send armed soldiers to the house to get them....and then Im just going to hand them over.... might hide a couple..... probably will..... but the majority I will grudgingly hand over for appearances.

    I may be tougher than the average bear....but Im not stupid enough to resist armed soldiers....or armed law enforement officials

    Im just sick of the blowhards on here saying we need them to protect ourselves from a tyrannical government.... which even if that was the founders intent....isnt relevant now..... and Im tired of hearing people say that armed citizens on the street is going to stop crime....and unarmed citizens will increase crime...... when there is absolutely no evidence that either will happen.

    I would have more respect for someone just saying I want my guns "just because"..... than having to hear all these lame excuses.

    Seriously Robo... could you see half these guys when a tyrannical government takes control..... it would be like a middle aged man marathon with everyone running for the border....

    "Im not in good health....let the youngins fight this one"

    "Im a business owner with an employee or two, I cant risk getting killed.....who will my crew work for when I am gone"

    "Anyone seen my corn pads, Im not going to be able to run for the border without my corn pads and shoe inserts"

    "There better be plenty of bathroom trips on the way out, Ive got problems with my prostate and my colon......."

    I am tired of people asking me to give them reasons (often called excuses; Corny) for why I need to own firearms. I don't need any excuses. I have the Second Amendment backed by a series of court decisions.

    What I am tired of is progressives trying to skirt or invalidate the Second Amendment when if they were bing honest would simply work thru the democratic system to change the Second Amendment.

    Presently, with the Second Amendment the standing law of the land it is not my responsibility to prove anything. It is up to the opposition of the current law to PROVE their case for the elimination of firearms.

    I'll probably head south... but not to mexico like you 2nd amendment guys..... I will probably take all my guns and meet up with Glenn in Dacula...where the vampires love to dink your bood...... and I guess we will make a stand for you guys there....

    Well call you when the shootings over and its safe to come back....

    True blue red blooded americans.....with our differences.....but with one thing in common..... a willingness and ability to kick ass and take names in order to save this nation that we love...... evidently more than you second amendment guys....

    This really is the bottom line. For those who don't like the way the U.S. is, and want to change the U.S. into something else, they should just say that they don't believe that Americans should have the rights and freedoms that made the U.S. the great nation that it is.

    These so called "progressives" are more like calculating women who spend their lives trying to change the guy they fell in love with into some guy they think they would be able to better control.

    Like progressives with government, those ungrateful wives never seem to realize that if they do change their husband into something other than what they fell in love with, he will no longer be the great guy they fell in love with. And then, just like what is happening to the U.S., everything just falls apart because of the growing differences between what was once unity.

    Progressives, which is a leftist term for Socialist or Communist (look it up!), are dividing Americans so badly that we are tearing ourselves down from the inside....just as Nikita Khrushchev predicted we would; [quote]I once said, "We will bury you," and I got into trouble with it. Of course we will not bury you with a shovel. Your own working class will bury you.

    I pray this will always be the case. Do you realize that most of those who want more government control over Americans are those who do not much believe in God?

    I am not a pilot, nor have anything to do with any airport or airline, therefore, I have no passengers.

    If "you" don't like something, then "you" have a problem. Since the problem belongs to you, you need to take care of your problem and not expect others to be taking care of your problem. Maybe you can get the government to take care of your problem as an add on to taking rights and freedoms away from American citizens.
