`Said the twit from the land that support a queen lol! `
`And you know the effects of an alternate history how?`

I`m not from the UK. So you`re wrong there for a start. As for alternate history, it`s common sense. To suggest otherwise would be like saying the French Maquis would have removed the Germans singlehanded.

`Yes and in no way in history or current events has exactly that happened LOL!!`
If you`re referring to the Arab spring, they are better armed than civilian weapons, they also receive serious foreign backing.

Your whole argument is based on misinformation and the word `lol`.

Terribly wrong argument. Dirtysteve00 nails the pertinent points here. If all they can dish up is fear using a completely wrong historical model, then they`ve already lost the argument.

And you know the effects of an alternate history how? No only is the UK full of know it all they also have the ability to see alternate dimensions!

``m sure they would just allowed that though if armed like you know how when they did get armed fought back for 100 or so years....`

Barely a sentence.

You`re also way too hung up on old models.

`Yes, case a revolution is always clear cut citizens vs. their government with no outside effects`

The American revolution wouldn`t have succeeded without French intervention, it`s the worst kind of revisionism to claim otherwise.

Ummm well let see around the time when we disarmed the Natives the British were in Ireland keeping them disarmed taking their land and well starving millions to death. So badly infact groups of Native Americans sent money to Ireland to help. I`m sure they would just allowed that though if armed like you know how when they did get armed fought back for 100 or so years....

Great sign. Maybe a bit off the mark, but if it offends you, then sometimes the truth hurts.

Soooo... this billboard is a problem but the anti-gun folks can totally use children in their appeal-to-emotion ads and that`s just fine and dandy? Dang it I hate swimming in hypocrisy.

McGovern1981 I`d like you to take that picture down. Tons of people who traverse this site can see it and I know a few nazis who are pretty offended by it.

When did that happen exactly? I don`t remember either the US or the Irish government doing that. The British had a go, but they were a occupying foreign power, not an elected government.

@patchy: "Their Government" eh?
But they had surrendered. They had turned over most of their weapons. The few they kept were for hunting FOOD eh?
500 armed soldiers vs 120 men and 230 women and children? Who had perhaps 20 guns in total?
It was a true massacre...

And the RCMP rounded up Japanese Canadian Citizens, not enemy soldiers...

European logic I`m scared of a machine ban them so only the government can have them because if they ever become tyrannical we should just bend over and take it....

It`s not exactly the same though, after all the natives were fighting with your government for years, the same cannot be said of your own citizens.

@carmium, when we have to overthrow the government, the military will be on our side. That`s why the Democrats don`t want to count their votes.

Let me know when your government sets out to kill all its citizens so I can watch all you gun nuts fight `em off. Should be entertaining.

If the government f***ed me over the way they f***ed the Indians over, I`d be pretty pissed, too. But then I have no intention of giving up my guns.

There`s plenty more where that came from.

And I take it that every single person in Europe has FORGOTTEN WW2?

Canoas - an armed populace can take out a government. Even with guns against tanks.

Canoas - More moronic comments from the worst generation ever. European to boot! Americans do not want to be like you, so keep your arrogant ideas to your side of the pond. And if you don`t think an armed populace can`t ever hold it`s own against a larger military, you should study a little history.

@canoas, no point bringing logic to this

Joe: "guns mean we can fight a corrupt government, it`s in the constitution"
John: "What use are guns against tanks and drone strikes?"
Joe: "Soldiers won`t fire on their own people"
John: "So why do you need the guns?"
Joe: "To fight the corrupt government, it`s right there in the constitution"
John: "Guns won`t be much use against....."

and so on and so forth

I don`t understand how anyone thinks their guns will protect them from their government..

"North Korea`s army techonolgy is 40 years old! They can`t even penetrate modern tank plating!"

"HURR DURR MY RIFLE WILL PROTECT ME FROM THE GOVERNMENT"

lol. seriously? have you seen what your army can do? it completely wiped country after country with an actual army, proper tanks an poo. Yet people think that their rifle will somehow shoot down A-10 Thunderbolts and blow up M1A2 tanks.
A single tank could take on a thousand civilians with no problem. The only limiting factor is it`s ammo. How can guns be used to protect you from the government? They`re utterly useless. They`re as effective as throwing rocks.

i dont really understand how this is comparing native americans to contemparary americans.. native americans were disarmed by forse, they were subdied and killed to make take the land from them.

how is this the same as contemparary people wanting to own guns for what ever reason they see fit. Are they planning to contest and take up those arms just like the native americans were forced too?

the point of wanting to own guns i can understand, wether i agree or not, but stating that all gun owners are now given a choice to surrender or die is somewhat far from reality.

You have every right to be offended.
However, you cannot expect the rest of the world to conform to your wishes just `cause you want it to. You can always put up your own bulletin board expressing YOUR message. In other words...

Get over it you whiney little cow!

can you trust a government comprised elected politicians who break most promises made during their election. and the people they designate to non-electoral positions.

Or, give up your arms, and realise just how bad you`re gonna get steamrolled when the government feels like it just like the way they gangbanged the Irish.

It`s Historically Accurate.

It`s only `offensive` if the truth offends you.

I like it, it makes it`s point and I don`t see it as being offensive. Everybody wants to be a victim, so they look for ways to be offended. Plus...I am native, so my opinion counts more than yours.
