    on violence / school-shooting:
    ...Virginia's answer to Virginia Tech was to ease the license to carry guns. There has to be tougher, consistent guidelines nationwide. It will not stop murders, accidents or suicides, but it may be a step to start decreasing the numbers... people kill people, you could say the same for nuclear weapons and I'm sure we don't want everybody to be able to access them...

      since Roe v. Wade, Americans have murdered about 40 million innocent baby human beings....does that bother you?

      no....of course not.

      more people die each year in America from accidental poisonings than gun violence, and last year, over 600,000 violent criminals were thwarted by citizens with legal firearms.

      the problem here is that you folks that would take weapons away from people (by force with weapons lol ) would only take them away from law abiding citizens, the criminals will always have guns.

      the same people that want to take guns away from law abiding citizens tell us that drugs should be legalized for everyone, because we can't stop people from doing them -- Hypocrisy much?? LOL

      there are hundreds of millions of guns in America.
      there are hundreds of millions of cars in America.

      which kills more people every year? cars? or guns?

      your concern is not for dead or injured people, if it were, you would concentrate on the biggest offenders.....this is clearly a case of "you" just hating guns and people that own them.

      O.K.
      but viewing the wikileak Baghdad killing video I think, maybe Americans love guns and shooting too much ...

      the collateral murder video has been thoroughly debunked,
      it's heavily edited, and neglects to spell out what happened just before it began.

      had this argument in another thread, forget the location at the moment. the group is very nebulous, it's almost impossible to find out who they are, but they are supported by every hardcore leftist group in the world.

      anyone can take a video of a military operation and pause it with their own added text propaganda.

      and of course, my original point about actual numbers of people being killed was correct, so let's not gloss over that.

      the truth is, you don't like guns or people having them, because a gun is a form of judgment, whereas an automoble accident (usually) is not. it's a purely emotional issue for you, no logic at all.

      @nyctreeman:
      you write:
      anyone can take a video of a military operation
      frizz-comment:
      all German television news magazines showed parts of the video (and the journalists asked the Pentagon before, if the document is made from a Apache heli);
      so, it's reality - to say: THAT's the reality of killing, not the language of official Washington statements; in Germany the Berlin administration is talking about "Friedensmission" (translated: peace-mission), but in reality it is a war (they avoid to call it war...)

      do you think, Dietmar, you can change óne micron in forever fixed mindsets like fi the one of a all righteous american rightwinger called treeman? That's a waste of energy. Just ignore it. People like that just won't move or think óne inch over their own narrow plot, blacklisting anyone or anything that might stir up their idea of the world. World? Where's that?

      Hey Douche Bag:

      I didn't attack you or your friend, I spoke in normal vernacular, made points that were based in facts and logic, and I was a gentleman.

      But because you disagree with me, then I must be an enemy, a monster, and I must be called names, and have my character assassinated...yes?

      You are nothing more than a Saul Alinskyite fascist little prick.

      our former chancellor Gerhard Schroeder liked to use the word "BASTA"; he didn't follow George W. Bush, the drinker, but our next chancellor, Angela Merkel, she did - with joy. Tony Blair, who liked to join the war too, is now called the poodle of Washington; Germans are not yet clearly thinking enough, to call their "Angie" the "poodle of Pentagon"...

      well frizz, you and I can talk about the war all day...that's a whole different pile of rotten apples. I would have done things much differently, but there you have it.

      but regarding my rights to keep and bear firearms....that I won't give up without a fight ;)

      hehe

    17. Frizztext 60 months ago | reply

      you are right, war in Iraq and rights to bear firearms in the US - these are different problems, we should not mix them - would be too complicated; did you hear about Starbucks, being not amused about wearing firearms in their coffee-shops?
