Nah, Zig called you a lying sack of shit, and arranged for someone else to get you to admit it.
Thanks
You really are not very good at this. You should go back to the whorehouse and pick up the broom stick.
Lord knows nothing else will ever get near that rancid twat of yours.
And yes, I love talking in the 3rd person to little pissants like you.
LOL. You are a fool, you had no idea where that joke came from all you did was call someone a liar it was arachnid that did what you should have done, but didn't or couldn't... It has taught you a lesson maybe, next time look before you make such a fool of yourself and open that big yap of yours.

Tools can cause death in the wrong hands.
But you seemed to be more concerned with the tools than the hands that use them.
If guns were so dangerous that they were used in a poor manner or by those wishing violence to any high degree you would have had murder rates and deaths not to mention injuries skyrocket a long time ago.
As it is only a minority of those who own hammers, guns, shovels, ice picks, cars and other tools use them to commit heinous crimes and intentional harm on others so what is your point?
Are you as stupid as to say we can eliminate tools....things that have already been invented and distributed worldwide?
You are another of these nutters that say guns don't kill people, people kill people, but I am pretty sure the guns help!
And you are obviously another poster that thinks by entering the conversation or argument or crap, that you do so by insulting the person you post to and expect a amiable conversation...You yanks just get dumber and dumber don't you!

If you had of googled it you wouldn't have needed to throw such a paddy, you big dumb jock.
um, I found this link in 5 seconds.

Hence my accusation you are a pathetic liar.

You still haven't found any links to post except the one that proved my point.

And I see that "paddy" landed right on that shriveled up puss you make moises from.

It's not crazy to know a gun doesn't wake up in the middle of the night and sprout legs only to go hunting someone to kill.

So who's the nutter?

You're entire presence in here navigates about being insulting idiot...so why do you cry about getting some feedback like a little bitch?

LOL!!!

--Do they sell Kleenex in Australia?

LOL!!!!

As far as knives, hammers, drain cleaners, guns automobiles and other items we have in our presence in the modern day well yeah...they can be used to kill people. When the person using them decides to use them in that fashion.

If that upsets you you're going to have an anuerysm friend because there's no wayt in hell you'll be ab le to eliminate tools which have already been invented, mass produced and distributed world wide.

Instead...focus on the people that use these tools for harm genius.

PSL Dan, tools can cause death but that is not their intended purpose for their invention, like a scapel or a back hoe, these things were designed to aid man in his work, not designed for any other purpose.

Guns on the other hand had a specific purpose in mind when they were invented also, and that was and is to kill, their whole purpose is death whether stored in a cupboard by a responsible gun owner or used by a farmer they have one sole purpose, and that is to cause death.

Do knives upset you too?? I mean....a lot of killers use those to off their victims.

What about piano wire. A favorite of the Mafia. Should we ban piano wire?

Baseball bats? There's been more than a few who've used Louisville Lsuggers to take out their wives over the fact the little minx didn't heat up the dinner that night. Should we eliminate them???

The problem is Ace guns are already out there. They've been invented. They've been mass produced. And people like you thinkk it a good idea law abiding citizens be stripped of them whilst criminals have them.

I'll pass. I'd rather die pulling a trigger at the assailant breaking in my home than do die with my last words being "Please mister don't"...LOL!!!

Add to that guns are used for hunting and target practice. They're a recreational tool as well Chief.

We're not talking about having bazookas in the closet or armored tanks in the garage buddy...we're talking about small arms.

So you're wrong.

I'd like to see an apology from you no less than 200 words but less than 500 in the morning in a neatly written format.

LOL!!!!

Danny Boy, thank you for that charming little insight into your fragile mental state, there is nothing you have said that hasn't been said before and unless you can show some intelligence or a willingness to rationalise then you are just another dumb waste of space, so either get with the programme or start at the end of the line sniffing the arsholes of the ones that have come before you.

They sell dictionaries in Australia?

Find the wording 'hypocrite'.

Look in the bathroom mirror.

Are you naturally as dumb as dog shit there Danny Boy, I said guns were invented to kill, you can use them for target practice or shoving up your bum, but guns were still invented to kill!...Are you having trouble getting that Danny boy?

I personally don't give a rats arse how you die but I hope it is at the end of a gun barrel, you deserve it, because you have the mentality of a gnat.
A thick yank, what's the chances!
