who is going to stand up to the gun fanatics?
let's get the ball rolling...
i know. if you want a gun, you have to live in the south. you can smoke AND shoot people.
Depends on what you mean by fanatics. Here's a novel idea. Instead of standing up to the GOOD GUYS with guns who ARE NOT committing any crimes....why don't you stand up to the CRIMINALS with guns??? You know.....the ones who won't pay attention to ANY number of laws that you want to pass.

We don't need gun control. We need criminal control.

i don't think so.
Aussies don't hate you, that's just your yankee paranoia at work because of the many countries that hate you worldwide, mainly because of your arrogant hypochrisy and bullying tactics...One law for you, a different one for everyone else! poor baby, have a cry.
