Also please spend even just a few minutes actually researching the reasons behind things (such as the Swedish name laws)

I did; it is still tyrannical. It is an oppressive rule of the government, quite simply.

everywhere that is not America is under tyrannical rule.

I'm not sure where you got confused; perhaps you can show me where I implied this? I've never implied that every other place on Earth lives in tyranny and that the US does not.

There you go again though - jumping to conclusions that are not supported by the statements at hand. Europeans (not all, but a seemingly disproportionately high number) appear to have great difficulty with this.

exactly what "natural physical disadvantages" are you going on about?

For instance, you can be attacked by multiple attackers, thus resulting in a natural, life-threatening disadvantage. A high-level MMA fighter might assault you with intent to kill you - another natural disadvantage. Yet another, the average man could easily dispatch the average women without using a weapon if he so desired.

Now, these are natural disadvantages. The disadvantaged individual has no natural means to "level the playing field", if you will. Now imagine that both parties had firearms; the field is closer to level now.

Therefore, allowing firearms to be owned and carried serves to benefit the naturally disadvantaged more than anyone else. I don't understand why everyone seems to be "against the little man".

@HumanAction your craziness has intrigued me, exactly what "natural physical disadvantages" are you going on about?

Also please spend even just a few minutes actually researching the reasons behind things (such as the Swedish name laws) before you start using them in an argument such as everywhere that is not America is under tyrannical rule.

You must be so proud of your country.

Well I certainly am. I look around and see all of the tyrannical rules citizens of other countries must abide by and pity them. For instance, citizens of Australia and the UK cannot defend themselves from natural physical disadvantages. Another example: people of Sweden can only give their children names from a government registry.

Yet, because many people in these countries were not instilled with the spirit of freedom, they do not understand that they live under tyranny. They accept it as the norm, and consider the concepts of freedom and liberty to be foreign and unjust.

So yes, I am proud of my country.

@drawman

@elderban, Did you even think before you posted that comment? Clearly, according to you, there is that much death and destruction from guns that it doesn't warrant a mention.

There are 851 accidental deaths from firearm misuse in the US each year (CDC 2011). This means that there are roughly 2.3 such instances a day.

Why then, if this is news, are we only hearing about cases now? I think the answer is obvious. Perhaps it is you who should think before commenting?

Folks forget that the news is not a public service, it is a business. To that business, you are not the customer. The customers are the people who purchase advertising on the news.
People buy more products when they're scared.
Thus, it is in the interest of the news organizations to ensure you are scared, because then you'll buy more from their advertisers.

Meanwhile in the Same State a gun is used by a man to protect his life and the lives of his family from a Goddamn Burglar.

Of course you won't hear about that because it isn't a tragedy and won't contribute to the volatility of the national gun control witch hunt.

Any self-respecting gun owner has a gun-safe. This kid's parents were idiots. Did you guys even flinch about the alcohol thing? i think that's worse than the gun thing.

And the problem with THAT idea is most every kid who accidentally shoots someone with a family gun was "properly taught about gun safety, and kn[e]w better than to mess with it." But kids ALWAYS do what they're told, right?

The problem with that idea is that an unloaded gun is pretty well useless. What are you going to do when someone breaks in on you in the middle of the night, ask them to "wait just a minute, while I unlock my gun, and load it"? I think not. My .40 is laying on my night stand, with a full clip, one in the chamber, and the safety on. My kids have been properly taught about gun safety, and know better than to mess with it. All I got to do is shuck the holster, flip the safety off, and blow someone's brains out through the back of their skull when they break in on me. Dead men tell no tales, and yes, before someone asks, I'll sleep just fine afterwards.

That's why you keep the gun unloaded and locked up in one place while the ammo is also locked up, preferably in a different spot.

Guns must be stored safely - handguns more so - to be legal in Canada. It eliminates the American option of a .357 in the nightstand to take care of burglars, but it's still a pretty good idea that really cuts down on this kind of stupidity.

"See? Stupid people and psychopaths shouldn't own guns. All I'm seeing is irresponsible people get killed or kill others with firearms." I agree, so how do we keep idiots and psychopaths from obtaining said firearms?

Okay parents as much as I support your gun rights, you REALLY need to keep your guns locked up when you're not using them.

I don't want to sound like a broken record but a gun can't do anything stupid without an idiot to help it.

"Europeans seem to think this was legal in the first place ROFL!!!"

Ever wonder why some people have this skewed misconception about the USA Mcgovern?
