I've already dumbed it down for your benefit and I really cannot be any more clear. Why did you flush the american flag down the toilet last 4th. of July?

I'm still waiting for your answer.
What is your question?

Craig's list ad--Read it closely... it's a good one.


To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in Downtown Savannah night before last.

I was the guy wearing the black Burberry jacket that you demanded that I hand over, shortly after you pulled
the knife on me and my girlfriend, threatening our lives. You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings. I can only hope that you somehow come across this rather important message.

First, I'd like to apologize for your embarrassment; I didn't expect you to actually crap in your pants when
I drew my pistol after you trying to my jacket.. The evening was not that cold, and I was wearing the jacket for a reason.. my girlfriend was happy that I just returned safely from my 2nd tour as a Combat Marine in Afghanistan .. She had just bought me that Kimber
Custom Model 1911 .45 ACP pistol for my birthday, and we had picked up a shoulder holster for it that very evening. Obviously you agree that it is a very intimidating weapon when pointed at your head ... isn't it?!

I know it probably wasn't fun walking back to wherever you'd come from with crap in your pants. I'm sure it
was even worse walking bare-footed since I made you leave your shoes, cell phone, and wallet with me.(That prevented you from calling or running to your buddies to come help mug us again).

After I called your mother or "Momma" as you had her listed in your cell, I explained the entire episode of
what you'd done. Then I went and filled up my gas tank as well as those of four other people in the gas station,-- on your credit card. The guy with the big motor home took 153 gallons and was extremely grateful!

I gave your shoes to a homeless guy outside Vinnie Van Go Go's, along with all the cash in your wallet.[That
made his day!]

I then threw your wallet into the big pink "pimp mobile" that was parked at the curb ..... after I broke the
windshield and side window and keyed the entire driver's side of the car.

Earlier, I managed to get in two threatening phone calls to the DA's office and one to the FBI, while mentioning
President Obama as my possible target.

The FBI guy seemed really intense and we had a nice long chat (I guess while he traced your number etc.).

In a way, perhaps I should apologize for not killing you ... but I feel this type of retribution
is a far more appropriate punishment for your threatened crime. I wish you well as you try to sort through some of these rather immediate pressing issues, and can only hope that you have the opportunity to reflect upon, and perhaps reconsider, the career path
you've chosen to pursue in life.. Remember, next time you might not be so lucky. Have a good day!

Thoughtfully yours, Semper fi,

Now that's some funny shit!

It might be of interest to note that Switzerland also has NO MURDER OCCURRENCE. However their law requires that EVERYONE own a gun, maintain marksman qualifications and "carry". You never hear about this.
Hard to argue with that!

No mention of guns?

<quoted text>He forgot to mention a few things:

1). Several of those countries may not even have "100,000 citizens"
2). His list is comparing the U.S. to under-developed third world countries. Sort of like measuring the strenght of horses against the strength of mayflies.
3). There are nearly 200 countries in the world so if he can calculate those few countries that have a greater number of murders, the U.S. is still WAY over the averge global murder rate.

What he's saying is, "The U.S. is up towards the top of the murder mahem counries of the world but I'm only going to mention the tiny few that are worse and hope no one notices."
It's a per capita comparison. Not having 100,000 people is irrelevant.

It is a vague question. In other words are you a hunter, a collector, a sportsman or just your average self-serving maniac that just like shooting you AR in the air on New Year's Eve to scare the bejesus out of your neighbors?
All of that is irrelevant. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

However..our constitution (the backbone

being armed to defend themselves against
anyone...including our own government.

I believe that is why guns are so
ingrained into our society.
Yes! Someone gets it!

Well regulated means having leadership. Not gun control. How many straws did you grasp that time?

The English Bill of Rights 1689 emerged from a tempestuous period in English politics during which two issues were major sources of conflict: the authority of the King to govern without the consent of Parliament

the US Constitution is based upon the articles of the Magna Carta....

The U.S. Supreme Court has issued a qualified rejection of the insurrection theory. According to the Court in Dennis v. United States, 341 U.S. 494, 71 S. Ct. 857, 95 L. Ed. 1137 (1951), "[W]hatever theoretical merit there may be to the argument that there is a 'right' to rebellion against dictatorial governments is without force where the existing structure of the government provides for peaceful and orderly change." Scholars have interpreted this to mean that as long as the government provides for free elections and trials by jury, private citizens have no right to take up arms against the government.

we have the right and power to change our government via other means than rebellion
English bill of rights irrelevant!

<quoted text>I agree with you on this. I personally own four guns, all of a different caliber and type, each has its own purpose. I do not need nor do I want more than what I have. I don't see the need to collect over 100 firearms. No one man has any reason for that.
I disagree! It's called freedom. I have the right to have 1000 guns if I want to, and can afford them.

<quoted text>I too miss the days where you could disagree with your neighbor without the worry of being shot, stabbed, run over or whatever the latest and greatest means of taking your opponents life may be. The fact is that 30 years ago the population was just as well armed as it is today, if not more so, yet killings like what happened in Newtown, or VA Tech, or Columbine were virtually unheard of. They still happened, after all the first mass killing in a school actually happened in Delaware in 1764, but they were rare.
If, in fact, the percentage of the population that was armed is the same or even decreased, then what has changed? Society has changed and that is to blame, not gns. Guns are only an instrument.
The change is gun free zones. Look at the publicized mass shootings of late. Other than Congresswoman Gifford, all have taken place in gun free zones, where the perp knows people can't shoot back until police show up. Then they typically take their own life.
