And I am saying that any individual that uses a gun for protection is an idiot, regardless of his right to do so, and anyone that disagrees with that after seeing the affects of them in the hands of some of these so called law abiding gun owners are morons. People who take the middle ground cause the most problems especially in an issue where lives are at stake it shows a weakness to commit.
You should have quit while you were behind.

Perception of what.
Someone like you who's social life is empty to the point she has to play some smartass troll on a guns forum in the States?
Someone like you who cannot advise specifics but instead advises us of her misaligned generalistic view that guns are "bad" yet has no real backing?
Someone like you who thinks anyone can just go into massacre mode at any moment?
LOL!!!!
You're so gone I'd be surprised if you had more friends than you had toothbrushes standing upright in your bathroom sister...LOL!!!
Oh Danny Boy,(do you actually think?) if my social life is empty, what then would be your excuse be for being here as often as me, you moron?
And guns affect everyone everywhere and seeing this is an open forum and you (being a yank) should believe in free speach (lol) then I am committed to speaking freely, but if you can't handle the truth and want a closed shop where everyone agrees with you then find another forum...and block me, can't be a commie in this forum...Sad for you eh!

Let's not go into who's bastardizing the English language now sister...LOL!!!
OK....provide proof to your statement.
You say, neanderthol I say neandathal you say color I say colour, you say Jail I say gaol, etc....There are many more examples of how you yanks bastardise the English language but you have to understand English to recognise that.

I actually heard an American say when asked what her language was, her confident reply was "it's American" I didn't know that was an actual language, left me in stitches and I laugh about it to this day when I get the occasion.

Go look at my history.

My posts.

I was never in here almost six THOUSAND times...like you.

LOL!!!

Good God.

And my typos? Sorry for 'neanderthol' and others.

Unfortunately you can understand what's being said.

dOnt tEL mee iM roNg on That yU duM bItch.

It is an open forum. Post away.

But what I don't get is if you're so against guns being in the hands of a country's citizens why you target the U.S. when your own country has a shitload of those tools as well?

---Here's the skinny. No one is teling you that you have to have guns.

Why do you feel the need to impede in other's liberties in having them?

Add to that if you still feel anyone can go junkyard dog crazy over nothing then why are you not working on eliminating them in your own country?

To me...you're just a lost troublemaker who does need this as her social connection and I doubt your personal life is worth bragging about.

We do have our cultural differences. If you're not bright enough to recognize that I'd suggest you stay the Australian housewife you illustrate yourself as.

Your quote: "And my typos? Sorry for 'neanderthol' and others."

So you made a typo did you?

Yet you used that inacuracy as proof to justify telling me that I had made a mistake on my spelling of Neandathal.(you were incorrect of course.)

So yours is a typo?

Therefore acceptable but it appears that I cannot make the same "percieved" mistake without copping a tirade of inacurate bullshit from a bachelor of bullSHIT!

It seems that you need to remove the stick from your arse there Danny boy as what is good for one should be good for the other, if you get my drift?

You are an "A" class idiot, and that is probably the only "A" you could ever hope to get in your whole pathetic life!
