********** GUNS DON'T KILL PEOPLE ............... IDIOTS WITH GUNS KILL PEOPLE ***************

You're not the problem, U say? You're not the Idiot, U say?

Why are you Condoning the Sales and Distribution of Military Style Assault Weapons on the streets where your Children Play?

Why are you Condoning Weapon Sales to Potentially Untrained, Uneducated, Unstable People...

When you Stand By and Say Nothing as Schools and Night Clubs get Shot Up with Legal Guns, by Legal Owners... YOU ARE CONDONING IT!!

I stopped talking about this subject a long time ago... now consider it " An American Problem "... after talking with a member on this board, who went on about teaching his children how to load and operate a 45ACP AT 6 YEARS OF AGE....

just say'n is all.... Beer

What about Caucasian immigrants? Do they allow them?  or don't they (Caucasians) kill people with guns?

Cute but I know folks with 10,000 rounds of ammo. People make ammunition and have supplies of lead  gunpowder whatever is needed. Ammunition shells can be reloaded after firing.   Also what do you bet Chris Rock has a gun in his house??  See he could pay 5000USD for a bullet.  Remember California Senator Feinstein who was anti gun who had a permit. Nothing to see here other than entertainment. ( I have no idea if Chris has a gun but lots of famous people have them for security reasons in Nutland)

Not true!

http://www.turning-japanese.info/2013/10/can-muslims-acquire-japanese.html


Hard to understand people. Unless you have lived or visited multiple times you might miss this.  Japan is one of the most Racist countries in the world.   Ask a Korean born in Japan how he feels.  My Nephew is engaged to a Japanese national from a very nice family but the pressure against them being married is immense.  I could see anti Muslim problems in Japan but doubt if the law says anything about it.  The japanese race is still so pure racially as only seven or eight face shapes are common which is why they use westerners to advertise in Japan. You can see Sean Connery selling Whiskey for example. I learned this from a Japanese Advertising exec I met at the Consumer Electronic show in Vegas. Japan and the Japanese are unique in the world in my opinion. Worth a visit if you can afford the cost. You ought to see how wierd Japanese TV is. They had the same VCR standards so you could play Japanese VCR tapes on US VCRs. They have strange things like giant machines that slap people faces in a big circle and everybody laughing. Must be something about living in such high densities.

If you want to rely on the police to protect you that is you choice.  I chose to be able to protect myself.  I jumped thru all the legal hoops to do so.  

LadyO, you really show your complete lack of understanding of this issue when you conclude with stupid, cutting, comments and think this is all about macho "ammosexual fantasies".  I realize that this is a very divisive topic and nobody is going to change their opinion.  Just try to respect each others opinions.

I have been in situations when I was carrying where I turned around and walked away while a crime was occurring.  Not my job.

Cbob, as a Canadian, your opinion on USA gun laws carries little weight beyond this thread.  Just as my opinion on Canadian or Mexican gun laws really doesn't matter.  Do a little research, go ahead and search online for all the mass killing in the countries you mentioned.  You might be surprised how many there are, even in Canada.   

Personally, I think gun purchasing laws should be a lot tighter including mandatory firearms training and complete background checks.  Then I can purchase that UZI I want to play with in the desert.

If you want to play with an UZi then you are not mature enough to own a gun. Playaboy, you are the problem.

Well I must admit I have played with a variety of fully automatic assault weapons and just about every modern hand gun you can think of at gun ranges however I have no desire to ever own one.

Zed, I don't get your point. No matter how racist or strange you believe Japan is the previous post saying Japan does not allow Muslim immigrants is still not true as CBob pointed out.
Also, nothing you talk about in your post is hidden or secret to be sussed out only by a long visit or living in Japan. Anyone who can read or has access to YouTube knows all that about Japan.

Here you go Zed. Perhaps this will clear-up some of your confusion. Aside from the phenotypic differences; a function of evolution, and of course culture; mostly a result of geographic isolation, we're all pretty much the same.

....and another thought: back in the WWII days, the country got itself into such a paranoid state that it ruined the lives of countless people who happened to be of Japanese ethnicity. Same deal with Italian fishermen on the West coast. Are we headed into a Muslim paranoia now?

So much for the “melting pot“ myth. Did you ever wonder why homo sapiens are the only people left on the planet? The other remaining primates are much less dangerous to each other. What really happened to the Neanderthals when we arrived on the scene?

You mean that with all our information now, we could pick and choose among the Muslims which ones to deport and which to leave in their homes and running their businesses? The Donald keeps it simple: ship them all out.

 In yesterdays' news, it was revealed that the FBI had conducted an investigation on the Florida shooter for ten months.  Looks like that didn't help. We had spies galore in the WWII days, too. We can go back centuries and find that spying has always been profitable and existed everywhere.

All that, yes, but in addition, it seems he was ISIS propaganda prone.

If the United States cannot ban semi-automatic weapons to please a bunch of rednecks, then how about we tax the ammunition for those guns so that it cost $100,000 for a box. And also make it illegal to own the ammunition if the tax has not been paid. The red necks can still get their rocks off playing with their gun.

The shooter was monitered by the FBI. The father was a supporter of the taliban, and at one time ran for office in Afganistan. He also had a television program in California which preached hate for gays and infidels. Blame the FBI, as they did not get him in time. This is an old but unfortunate story.

Shit-stain of a pastor declares that the "tragedy is that more of them didn’t die." Now I know that Christianity is above all else about compassion, and perhaps money, but I have trouble reconciling this statement with the popular notion of Christian Love™. Perhaps someone here can help me.

http://www.patheos.com/blogs/progressivesecularhumanist/2016/06/sacramento-pastor-praises-orlando-massacre/

...and note that he is not the only American "man of god" who is making such pronouncements.
