So what is it, were you raped at gunpoint or did one of your family members off themselves with a gun?
None of the above, it is just that I am an adult now, I rationalise and logic like an adult, not like a childish gun owning tit still hoping about playing with guns....if you can borrow a grown up brain from a visitor from another country that already has, gun restrictions, you might get a clue....but I doubt it.

Now there is the rational of a gun owning tit that we all know and love.....glad to see it in full force....NO guns...no gun deaths that is a given, it is that simple.....There will always be unhinged people that will kill, accidents, suicides, it is the human failing and is inevitable, so you make it easier for them or those that want to kill en masse, that's the shot you bright spark....I bet you were the smartest in your school too...

By the way for any of you gun owning military arse lickers...11 children lost their lives today in Afghanistan thanks to Nato, it appears they didn't "realise" there were children in the building when they fired on it them....This is the greatest come together intelligence and military group on the planet and they just killed 11 kids by going in blind.... Feckin' lunatical dumb arses. and there excuse for 11 kids dead, don't worry they might come up with a better one before the media on this heats up....and to the gun owning twats and weapon lovers everywhere...how many lives were saved today by your gun? mad, crazy bastards.....I put up 11 children that would be alive today if they hadn't been killed before there time from weapon producing nations for profit....feck you all.

But you don't care about the innocent. All YOU want is to reduce the human population of this world by force, and you can't do that as long as the people are armed.

And PS....all hell is not breaking loose you paranoid person...did you read what Hague said, if you did you would know that he thinks the NK have not enacted their military yet...so who would you prefer to listen to...a voice of reason or wherever your info is coming from ie or biased sensationalist media representation via your government....don't make the same mistake you lot did in Iraq, where the first sign of propaganda you get all puffed up and kill without just cause....let them talk this through calmly, and prey cooler heads like Hague prevail.... don't be in such a rush for action.....it never solves anything.

So, you say you want to get rid of every weapon on the planet?

If YOU were to be informed that YOU are the deadliest weapon around, would you commit suicide in order to carry out your wish?

Well, there it is for all the world to see: YOU espouse VIOLENCE against other people, men, women, AND CHILDREN who've NOT EVER harmed anyone.

Merely that those people own, use, or possess a particular device is all that you see as necessary to annihilate them.

And YOU have the bloody nerve to ridicule gun owners, and gun users .......

All NATO's fault huh? But it's ok to surround yourself with children if your in a combat zone. Your ok with that. Maybe they will find blown up korans and prayer rugs, then you could ignore the AK's next to them and you could really come down on the Allied Troops.
You seem to be completely against freedom, sounds more like your a slave to allah, he doesn't like freedom either.
How about you don't start a war in the first place and you would not be there and those kids would still be alive...
