Sassicaia, I never said you did. I was asking if that was a safe statement and I guess I was wrong.

A killer will get a weapon be it a hand gun or not. There are LAWS preventing criminals from having guns that hasn't worked either.

Not that this is a great argument but why should you have the right to socialized health care. I think that is a messed up system.
Our country was founded on a belief and many of us follow and believe in those beliefs. Some people and politicians use them for personal and political gains.

Again it is not the size of the gun, the amount of ammo it can shoot, the damage it can cause. A human being took it upon himself to do harm to another. This should not negate the rights, yes rights, of the rest of the citizens in our country. With your argument we should just through out the other 9 amendments if they don't work either. Right to freedom of religion, throw out the right to free speech, the right to be judge by our peers, Many of these have not worked well in all situations should we just throw them all out or just the ones you agree with.

Thank you though as you just made me realize we need an IQ test before issuing guns as well to keep them away from YOU people.

Oh but I guess I should add that I wasn't talking about you Canadians not liking the US. I know you fuckers love it because you flock to my city and buy all our property up.

Although I want to make clear to you other northerners that almost every Canuck I have met has been extremely nice and pleasant....some pretty hot women too.
They're not all angels, Skinny....
You are right though. An IQ test wouldn't be awful....
But it's more than that.
Guns shouldn't be so easy to come by. In my country and yours.
Babies shouldn't be shot. I think we can agree on that.
Head up north here and I'll buy you a steak.

i misread, sorry.



On a side note:

This isn't, and shouldn't be a us vs canada debate. I love America, and have many dear American friends. There are plenty of dicks in canada, and we have some pretty shitty politics. Id love to say we have the same amount of free speech as Americans, but we certainly do not.

My feelings are purely based on gun policies which effect a large population of people. I could shit on every country about something, but the topic at hand happens to be gun control which to me is an easy one to crap all over

I'm not trying to make this a US vs Canada and I don't think "I" have.

What should also be pointed out are the *millions* of average, everyday people that have a gun, rifle, permit to carry a gun or do not have a permit that don't carry illegally. That have never committed a crime. We are everyday folks that go to church, school, work, have kids, pay mortgage or rent.

You don't read about us in the paper, we are not a statistic of carnage. We might be a snowboarding dad on a forum, guy driving his kids to a sporting event in the minivan next to you, maybe your boss.

We are the majority of people who own guns that you would never know about. Are we the subject to have our, I know *right again* taken away????
It may not be perfect but there is NO way it can ever be. There is a flaw or loop hole in everything.

amazing how this blew up to 8 pages in less than 1/2 hour time.....
