Rants, guns and opinions
On the article - Good, one more wingnut incapable of a basic grasp of self preservation is out of the gene pool. Harsh but true.
On the Yank bashing by the Brits -
a) We're hardly a sterling example of common sense either - re guy murdered over football, any A&E Dept on a Saturday night, our Police force's penchant for murdering people "just in case".
b) Not all yanks are the stereotypical braindead rednecks. Just many of the ones that make the news.
c) Not all yanks are gun toting psychos.
On Brit bashing by the Yanks -
a) Excuse me, but you only got involved once Japan made a preemptive strike. Japan... not Europe or any European entity. Your support also came at a huge price that we only recently finished paying off. i don't see you paying us for the wars in the Middle East.
b) You do have a nasty tendency to not pay quite as much attention to the world around you as you might. I drive in the US quiet often and the lack of common sense on the road scares me.
c) You do have a very, very poor rep for dropping bombs on yours or your allies troops. Old saying from WW2 was that "When the British bombed, the Germans ran, when the Germans bombed the British ran. When the Americans bombed, everyone ran" .
Folks, every nation has its own share of wingnuts, maniacs and raving yahoos - some more newsworthy than others. It's not an indictment of the nation in question, merely of the Human Race.
Besides, I'm all for everyone having as many guns as they want. Only I get the ammo as well though.
