In my elementary school, we had the hunter’s safety course. In my high school, we had a shooting range in the auditorium basement. The seventies rolled around and it all came to a stop.

So why would you be against teaching kids how to be safe, and the proper way to handle a gun?

You have had no intelligent discussion as of yet. You have only spammed the site with stupid and unintelligent remarks with no substance. Do you have any point to make if not why not go back to sleep. I ask a question because of your offhanded remark and if you cannot answer due to ignorance then just say so.

What's wrong with teaching kids to properly handle guns? In this way they will know how to be safe with a gun.

Are garbage disposals illegal in Sweden too since none of you thought of teaching each other not to cram your hand down one that is running to retrieve a spoon? A gun is a tool. That's all they were referring too. I can see in your short response that you assume they're teaching them to kill(?)- is that what you're thinking?

You know nothing of our country. You're a punk from abroad judging us when you have no idea what living in America is like. Did you ever bother to think our population outweighs your own significantly among other things. The fact we are one of the most free nations in the world? Not to meantion a world power and a nation where many countries including your own gain insight from with technology, socialization and other areas? Want to start a pissing match?

You're nothing but a punk. What real insight do you have to offer. I see none.

You're the farthest thing from intelligence.

Let me give you an analogy. You get a cold and work to effectively kill every germ in the world. And you're successful, all happy that every germ in the world is gone. But then you get violently sick and eventually die. Do you know why? Because you rely on some germs to help you digest food properly and the presence of germs actually makes the body stronger, even some of the bad ones. Talk to your doctor if you don't believe me.

And in addition....hot would you effectively get rid of all the germs to begin with??? Fact is you cannot. You can only try and build your defenses.

Same goes for guns. I wish it was Disneyland and the worst we had to fear were cartoon characters living in a world with no guns. It would be a nice dream. Unfortunately there are guns, you'll not get rid of them through wishful thinking and with the overal poliferation of them they are here to stay Ace. So maybe it's you that needs to down a few more vitamin Bs and put on your thinking cap before you spout off nonsense. Idiot. You know nothing of our country other than you visited Magic Mountain in 1999 and really had a good time on the rollercoaster.

Get lost.

I do not know what drugs you are using before you sit down and post here.And i can not help you , i am not a psycologist,nor have i been around "special" people that much.

What you just posted has resemblens of what you might expect to come out of a Crack-users mouth.
It was a really bad example "worms " and "gems" WTF???? LMAO
And it is not true,maybe it will take some time before things get normal , the people that dont give up there gun will of course have the power to rob you , and you will lose what he takes , at least a life is saved, he didnt kill you , and / or you didnt kill him. You lost STUFF , well if your insured you get your STUFF back.
Sooner or later all criminals will be taken by the police and will lose there gun 1 after the other.And then most of the guns will be gone. The time until order is installed will be like a punishment for your arrogans when you from start ignored the human lifes value.
Damn sestpool !!

Brother, I had to down 2 Excedrines to understand what your rant above here was. Holy smokes.

I can see you never have lived here nor know America's history. Nice theory....getting the guns back one by one. You must have some pretty STUPID criminals in Sweden. Unfortunately here we don't and we need our guns to protect us on an individual basis.

So take your simpleton views and keep them to yourself. You're pretty naive Ace.

All criminals are stupid, along with some others. People who otherwise seem intelligent, but insists on carrying hidden guns in places they don't belong are also stupid. If they were actually intelligent, they would not be scared of shadows, would learn self defense, and would not insist on being given a legal chance to kill another human being.

You're assuming again. Many criminals have very high IQs. Go ask the FBI.

I don't think you understand. There are about 2,374,391,033,048,021,982,596 flavors in the Baskin Robbins of humanity. Your efforts to simplify that to suit your means are all wrong.

Pitiful. And so backward, of course.
