You know I 'd dont normally reply to this stupid threads about guns
, But let me sum up
(a) Its my right to bear arms,. irespective of you foreign types and your laws and my rights are valid anywhere on the planet. ( I once saw a US military cargo ship openly violate Spainiah VHF
rules while sitting in a Cartagena
Bay in Spainish, so its goes to the top guys
(b) The whole world is full of nasty people out to kill me ( oh amd rape my wife). I know this as I saw if on Fox news. and look at those Somalian pirates, hez just where is Somalia
anyway, is that near cuba
(c) SHoot everyone that boards my yacht unannounced ( ohh and then run away). Thats good advice when say French drugs and customs
guys board you "unannounced and you shoot them, and run away to be chased by a Frigate and see the inside of a jail for a very very long time , yeah good advice, kill the poor guy thats looking for food , ciggies, etc. ( have you ever ever actually sailed outside the US , and no the US VI doesnt count, ever had a couple of rough sailors come over because they were curious, wanted to trade
for ciggies, or just to throw you a fish
or too, ) yep blaze away there
(d) I can protect myself and my children/wife/dog, delete as appropriate, sure your a match for 4 or 5 guys with AK 47s who have spend every year since birth shooting and been shoot at. , sure you can beat them, you watched all the Die hard moves didnt ya. There its easy
(e) Some where , foreign, at least least one person got shot/raped by somebody, sure I read it in a blog/CNN/forum. So all countries are full of crazed loonies out to kill/rape me.
(f) if you shoot at people you will scare them away. ( ie the reasoning that theres not much pirates in US waters, mind you ther arnt any in UK, EU Scandivian, Med waters generally either and there the citizens dont "bear" arms.). Shoot at people may scare them , but must likely if they mean harm they will fire back, hard to defend yourself against an RPG. If they didnt meam any harm you've "scared" away what could be a rewarding meeting.
Firstly , guys read your constitution/history, The second amendment was primarily enacted to allow you to defend yourself from yourself, ie the fear of professional armies, the issue re militias etc, Not as a justification to blaze away in a foreign country. SO keep you guns as intended for use on US soil against anyone tryong to retake the US back. However the rest of the world has got over this issue and gets on reasonably peacefully without needing its citizens to look ( and act ) like rambo.
Please let loose the guns threads, I really beleive these people are trolls
PS ( yes I own guns , yes, I hunt blah blah, )
