Isn't Justin Bieber a foreign invader too?

Should've never let him in. Where's my thousand round clip? (good thing it has wheels on it)

"Or is it a legacy from your founding fathers who feared tyranny from their own government? Isn't that what the second amendment is all about?"


So you think you can start shooting at the cops, or the National Guard, or the Army, and kill them, and they'll just leave you alone, because...freedom.



"There has never been an invasion of foreign troops on american soil. I wonder why? Could it be because the populace is so well armed?"


Yes, I wonder why...


http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/War_of_1812

"The British victory at the Battle of Bladensburg in August 1814 allowed them to capture and burn Washington, D.C."

"In the United States, victories at the Battle of New Orleans in 1815 and in the Battle of Baltimore of 1814 (which inspired the lyrics of the American national anthem, "The Star-Spangled Banner") produced a sense of euphoria over a "second war of independence" against Britain."


It's depressing, really, how little information pro-gun advocates actually have, compared to how much they think they actually know.


They don't know anything...and they don't want to know anything.

I meant lately. And 1812 was a canadian invasion. I'm not pro gun at all, just pro freedom.

Let's not even get started on 9/11.. That's a whole other thread. Never mind you guys are right.

The government always has your best interests at heart.... Lol

Willing to cut you some slack on this - it's just that I have little tolerance anymore for people who have formed opinions on guns based on information that's completely wrong.

I had a Canadian guy yesterday try to tell me, on the Gun Nut thread, that the US homicide rate, minus gun murders, was "multiple times higher" than the overall Canadian homicide rate (with guns murders included). Took 2 mouse clicks to prove him wrong - in fact, they're statistically the same, 1.6 per 100,000. It was something that he just made up out of thin air, with no interest whether he was right or wrong...

Hedge, do you think an armed populace deters the risk of tyranny and genocide? I do.

In the 20th century, world wide, roughly 100 million people lost their lives to genocide, most at the hands of their respective governments.

12,000 dead each year in the US is certainly tragic. Aurora was tragic. Sandy Hook was tragic. 100 million lost to genocide is tragic. Human beings do bad things to each other.
