Gun laws in the USA are crazy, anyone can own a gun, saying that its getting bad over here
actuallu amethyst, the gun laws are not crazy at all, you can buy a gun on the black market, they can be infiltrated into our country through our porus borders, and we are protected by our constitution that we have the right to bear arms, if you have a gun you can protect yourself, and imagine this is the worst ever in US and we are over 225 years old, so to have one bad apple in 300 million is not too much to imagine, the reason i believe America is in trouble is the desensitization of our country of the value of LIFE since we had abortion allowed here, over 30 million babies have been mutilated, so where is the justice???.. God is the only righteous and just God, and he holds it all in his hands, man in our frail and unrighteous lives cannot even hold a candle to his righteousness because it is perfect, ..just as God says the sins of the fathers will be in the next generation and the next, so America has set itself on a crash course with ablivion. America is reaping what it has sowed, God says e will not be mocked, whatsoever a man sows that he will also reap. So when life is not honored, it is no longer regarded in such a magnificent way God holds it, so we are destined for this destruction because of our own actions. God will allow these thigs because we are not in his will. Now it is not all abortion but it started with it and the slippery slope was achieved and with every game with murders, and cops killed and every song that degrades human life, what are we to expect?? just such an occurance,
act as if the "right to bear arms" is the most important part of the constitution, and maybe when the country was founded that was a real need.
Yes shopgirl it is important, it is not the gun that killed, it was the person... Gun control will only cause more problems, Austrailia has it and murders increased dramatically, obviously you never met anyone who had a relative killed by a murderous thug.... or maybe you did?? Has WWII gotten by any of us???? remember the murders of our families by the germans and russians??? There is a reason not to have it, because once you dont have a means for the people to defend themselves we will have anarchy..
if you believe that for one second that Iran would not overrun a defensless country , think again, if they are bold enough to take 15 people hostage and break all international laws and protocol, as well as the genieva convention it will be a rouge nation that will be an agressor. So lets not be too quick to start to judge the Guns...
it starts inside people...if you have a people who can not pray anymore in school, and get sued because the 10 commandments are offensive in a public forum, and that there are groups in this country that want to eliminate God from every aspect of our lives..then what do you think we will end up with????? Yes..the answer is very easy...
A people who do not value life, and when life is devalued, then you do not stand as a great nation..America used to be a great nation, but she is no longer a great nation, because her leaders, past and present have disregarded the real value of life and freedom and have chosen a political climate of hatred and animosity, and self righteousness, and all i can do is quote Jesus who said... there is none righteous, except for the Father.
Amythyst and shopgirl, i respect your opinoins, i just used them to make a point, it is not that easy and isdeeper than just a gun law, so I am not ganging up on you just quoting you to make a point, i want to protect my family, I had a great great uncle murdered by the SS, so yes i believe in the right to bear arms, do i want to take a knife to a gun fight as the Indiana Jones would say.. So yes when they come with a gun they smuggled in, how do I plan to protect my family, with a squirt gun???
have a good night , this is my side of the opinion, its not just a republican cause, i know many many democrats, and know of a congressional democrat who carried a gun in Washington DC where it is illegal, and he was quoted as saying he had it for his own protection, so it is not just republicans, in such a politically charged atmosphere in america, please dont characterize republicans with this issue, it just spreads untruth and gossip, and shows that you are not totally informed on the subject, not to be mean about it, but before you criticize someone or a group make sure you have all the facts first, otherwise you are discredited when someone knows a bit more, and I say this only for your benefit not mine, because there are those out there who will be offended, and it did come across as offensive and abusive and finger pointing, and man i tell you I am so sick of the political scene here in America, i am so tired of the name calling and blame game, they both are as guilty and both parties are to blame for everything here, so there is again not one righteous, they are self righteous, and yes i am registered Republican, and I am blasting my own side!!! They are weak and have no skin or Jajka!!
So i am not criticizing you guys, my ???? are for us to think about things, not to say ahaaaa, take care.
but the bright side is that only a very small percent of gun owners in the US actually use them for crimes
Art is correct !!! And the reason he is is because we do have the right to bear arms, and people know that, I think if I put a sign on my door that says i will shoot forst and ask questions later if you think you are going to enter my house to rob , steal or kill us, i think they will pass. Guns actually deter crime.
