“And that's the end of the issue”

Why do we have the same futile argument every time there is a mass killing? Advocates of gun control try to open a discussion about whether more reasonable weapons statutes might reduce the number of violent ... via Truthdig

Isnt it funny that when they are truly whipped the only thing the gunnuts can fall back on are "twilight zone" survivalist fantasies.

Even with guns the citizens of the United States are so under the thumb of their Govts. that there has never been a shot fired in civil disobedience for 150 years. And then it failed to secure the rights of the slave owners.

The corporations have hijacked the 1st and second ammendments for profit, and the rest only benefit criminals and lawyers.

No wonder you have to have a HUMUNGOUS Federal Govt. to fight your battles against the wealthy for you.

I guess you would know being Thailand is where you claim to be.
Is it true that Thailands history shows those not armed are the first to go?
Sounds exactly like the genocide of the red indian, rather than the Thai Kingdom that has never been colonised.

well a nuke war is likely the last result, it's the bombing and invasion, killing in the street is what you worry about. Armed insurgents and starving looters. It's called real war and what happens. You know when your at that place when either you die or somebody else does. In your case it will likely be you.
That is not the impression you gave, you were just having a go at Australia for not having nukes and to be fair there are enough of you noongs out there with them already we don't need anymore of you....we are smarter than that.

So what you are saying is that America is good at abusing it, and the worlds resources with their big pools, big houses, big fat people, too much food and too little intelligence ...way to go you noong, that is why you are broke and China owns your arse, in Yankee bonds... so keep it up, this kind of drain on the economy and the resources can't last much longer, and it is all down hill from there.

PS....Right now there is a cat and mouse battle going on with North Korea and America, and it is places like Japan and Guam and South Korea that are the countries in the front line of fire, not America......America has just altered it's rhetoric against Kim Jong Un because they have just realised that he is a nutter(dumb yanks)and crazy enough to fire of a nuke, though it won't be America that cops it...Last case scenario....North Korea fires a nuke at South korea and the Americans fire back from a stealth fighter....who wins? No one!

Just what is the NK Heresy.

They have the most homogenous ethnicity on earth, a virtual monoculture.
The military is one of the strongest in the world.
The literacy rate is 99% with free education and health.
Citizens earn the bulk of their income in individual or family small business, traded between themselves tax free.
Having been under severe economic trade sanctions they are almost immune from foreign capital Corporations.
After the end of the Soviet Union they have managed to change their constitution to exclude the term communism.
They have offered Foreign Investment but sanctions make it difficult except for internet technology.
Placed between a rock and a hard place they managed to arm themselves with nuclear weapon technology.

It sounds like what the white supremists want for Australia.

I agree. I know you Aussies are a hardy breed, riding on the backs of crocs like you do,and a good brawl would stop most intruders.
But what about a pack of wild dingo's eying your young'un playin in the yard, you running to get to them and yer Sheila's gettin the gun.
Or wild pack of aboriginal headhunter warriors snatching a family member for a sacrifice?
I make light of it in fun, but as a parent,, a dog attacking or some perverted piece of shit stalking my kid are a reality and a gun is really the best way to deal with both.

Not according to 'Ahomana.'
She thinks that your children are game.

In fact, if you ask her, she'll actually tell you that there are too many of the rest of us around, and that we should all be rounded up and exterminated.

That's the way it is with the dirty, mean, rotten, nasty, and totally invidious QUEEN OF STINK.

It's called a deterrent. Just like my 12g shotgun is a deterrent.
The threat of a nuke war is more remote than you think. I say that with the exception of Iran and N Korea.The little dictators wanting to be big ones, the Super Powers realize using them offensivly,gains nothing, except MMD.(I Hope).
So being smarter than that and figuring da nukes do fall it wouldn't matter anyways,,You'd be right. What would be smart is a level of prepardness up to that point. That would be a strong, well armed, civillian population. The best deterrent.
Being disarmed by your government shows me a distrust of the people and not a good idea in todays world being what governments are now-a-days.
Besides all that crap,I'm more concerned about the bad guy climbing in thru my window and what Could happen IF he does, and having the Right to have the best possible choice to ensure my best chance of survival is comforting indeed.
You're an idiot...17,300 nukes in the world and you actually think Americas leaders are sane....ROTFLMFAO
They are ALL insane you moron....nukes don't give anyone the BEST chance of survival unless you are the only one with them.....and guess what, YOU ARE NOT...Feck you people are sooooo stupid...continued laughter at your stupidity. you bloody moron.
