So we scratch the middle of the road person and find a closet gun lover, what were the chances? I had you pegged from the start, you trolls need to get up earlier.

Firearms, albeit a tad more restrictive than the U.S., can be bought and owned in your OWN country dipshit.

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!
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.

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.

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.
Sharp as tacks over there?
I must have got you ALL whizzed up...LOL!!!

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.

Didn't even come close, a blind man could've seen you coming down the "far right" side of the road a mile away. You are nothing but a pathetic little sheister, and obviously an idiot.

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!

Nah....

..I've spelled 'neanderthal' as 'neanderthol' for years.

As it is if I'm wrong, I'm wrong and will correct the mistake.

I myself don't think you've developed the ability to identify your mistakes let alone correct them.

You're in here laying out smartass agnst against American gun owners.

And for what?

Do you hope to reach an accomplishment?

I mean Christ loser...what's your point?

Long after you're dead Americans will still have guns for home protection. I don't get why you'd want to see them less protected.

Add to that if you're so hell bent on firearms being in the possession of it's country's citizens focus on your own patch of land idiot.

You're an idiot. You're like someone living in Orlando, Florida who doesn't like fireworks who drives to Reno,Nevada and starts ranting and raving on the street corner that fireworks are the tools of Satan.

You're crazy.

Get lost you looney bitch...LOL!!!
