    Wow. Neighborhood watch in the UK usually comprises of a very nosey family, an old person and a colossal pervert. I`m not sure who i`d rather meet in a dark alley to be honest...

    It clearly worked didn`t it, but as was mentioned before, the key is that Nashville isn`t full of degenerate scum trying to milk the system because they`re lazy S.O.B`s. Instead it has a lot of people that are willing to try and help each other and not wait for a handout.

    Grogg: They probably own the guns for game, using at shooting ranges, or protection. Not every guy who likes beer and owns a rifle is part of the problem.

    Nerd Rage, if you`re telling me that you wouldn`t pack a gun in a disaster scenario to protect yourself and your property from looters, then I want to move in next door to you when the next big storm hits. Since I`LL be packing and I`ll be damn sure to pay your place a visit, idiot...

    They`ve all got shotguns and pistols, which are fine for close-range shooting, but a good deer rifle is much better for looters. You can easily pick them off at 200-300 yards, and they won`t even hear the shot.

    Grogg, "And people wonder why there is so much gun crime in America!"

    Actually, there was no looting, or any crimes during the flooding in Nashville. People helped each other rebuild their communities, and lives. They also helped people protect their community. I submitted a video of people helping each other, but none of the several links I have been suggesting are getting posted. I guess I am un-liked or something now. But, here is a link to the video I suggested none-the-less:
