I don't wanna start a problematic thread here, but what the f*ck is up with you Americans and your guns. Seriously, what's the deal? Can someone explain?

Over here in the Netherlands we kee laughing about those guys on CNN after school shootings, telling everyone to get more guns and to arm teachers etc. That's so maniac! I think with regard to this topic, there is a GIGANTIC cultural gap between the USA and Europe.

I'd have to agree with you Gyre. Us Americans are out of control with the guns. I'd be happy if they didn't exist at all. Yeah yeah, constitutional right, nobody let's you forget that. As long as us Americans have this right, idiot gun owners will continue to be the cause of a lot of unnecessary deaths. I'm not bashing responsible gun owners, I really don't have a problem with them. There should be a freaking IQ test before you can obtain one.

I used to shoot clay pigeons with my dad when I was younger. I was taught to respect what a weapon is etc. There's nut cases everywhere. Whatcha gonna do? @ least I have protection & handle it like a pro. Great indoor range near by. My favorite EDC is a .38. God, America is great, hun?

For a long time my favorite EDC was a M4/40.

But things are a little different once you come back outta the sandbox and I respect that -- hope they stay that way for a long time to come.

And yes, America IS great.

School shootings are no laughing matter. Any part of them. Your reaction is sick.

And based on the tone of your post, explaining "what the deal" is to you specifically seems like an impossible, thankless task. So I'll skip it, other than to say that the citizens of this great country do not tolerate tyranny, nor the threat there of; which comes at a price.

It's been said that anything one has to say has already been said better by another, so I'll just end it here with a quote from a fellow DBG member:

God Bless America! & that cultural gap is comforting.

I think what happens too ofter is always a tragedy. But if you take away the rights our forefathers gave us Americans like to bear arms, what next? Freedom of religion? Those gents back then were wise enough to make a country. It's worked so far.

WOW... Did I say that I'm laughing about school shootings? Nor sir. I said: We are laughing about those idiots telling everyone, AFTER school shootings, to gear up. We cannot understand that YOU cannot understand that guns kill people. My reaction is not ment to be sick. I think killing children is such and having guns is sick. Over here we don't have guns and, consequently, we DONT have any shootings...

 

Tyranny? Seriously? What the hell are you talking about.

Laughing about a reaction to something as disturbing as a school shooting, regardless of how absurd that (over) reaction is, is sick.

No shootings? Not "any"? A quick google search proves otherwise (Ridderhoff mall, etc).

Re: "Tyranny? Seriously?" Pick up a history book and inform yourself about what the hell I'm talking about.

I am done engaging with you in regard to this. It's playing out exactly as I said it would when I mentioned it being a thankless impossible task.

Have a good day.

Way to act professional two, on a very controversial topic. My hats off to ya!

I didn't take it as her laughing. This is a controversial subject and just as you are entitled to your opinion, so is she. I just happen to agree with her.

Tyranny, Shmyranny...

 

I'm alive and intact, no thanks to the thugs who wish to do me harm. Don't even have to open the door...
