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.
OK........crying..........Ok.. ........feel better..........thanks........ ..

Did you know that you can't BLAME all Americans? It's the government who makes the decisions. We JUST pay for everything.

Don't hate us because we are beautiful....

GUNS ARE SAFE: Don't worry, your guns are safe.

Everyone will soon know that the NewTown massacre was only a phony
media event organized by the governmentand the media with actors pertending they were shot.

Florida professors, even though they are leftist academic elites, have

brought the truth to light.

Obama will be informed of this phony media event and will stop the gun

restriction initiatives.

Fortunately, this ruse has been discovered. Your guns are safe...

Bless the Lord and the NRA... keep everyone safe...

Maybe because those that are committing these masacres and killing children weren't crims befor the act(they WERE law abiding citizens just like you, with guns..... you silly noong.
The minute these mass murderers picked up a gun with the intent to inflict the most damage they became a criminal. And most of them had mental issues or were on some type of psychotropic drugs.

The difference between you and I is I am NOT willing to base my judgement of over roughly 90 Million LAW-ABIDING gun owners based on the actions of a handful of nut cases.

If you are willing to remove guns from those 90 million people based on something they haven't done, and will NEVER do, why aren't you out there calling for the destruction of all cars and trucks just in case someone goes out and gets drunk?? Or the destruction of all swimming pools because someone might drown??? Is this sinking in yet, you bigoted fool?

WE NEED BOTH.
There always will be criminals. Always.
Are there good guys with guns?
There will always be death. Always.

For a child its more likely to be a car accident or a drowning but every summer families pile in the cars and head for the beaches and pools.

Alcohol and tobacco dwarf the gun numbers and you can buy the stuff on just about every corner. Let's not even get into legal and illegal drugs.

Throw in 1,200,000 legal abortions for good measure. Hell. Were surrounded by death.

So after all of this legal death you want me to throw away my gun rights for 20 kids? Sorry but you must be on crack. You must be a complete idiot.

A person who owns a gun COULD become a criminal much easier than a person who DOESN'T own a gun.

An argument could escalate into a gun battle.

Normal people DON't feel the NEED for guns. They do more harm than good.

Not on crack and never will be.

I'm not a COMPLETE idiot. Partial? It's not so bad.
