These stats are just pure crap that you post all day long.
You must be a real pathetic loser to have to go and live in Thailand, a fat ugly old potbelly loser that no woman will look at in Australia so you go over there to prey on little kids. The Thai police should just get all you western pedophile bastards hiding in their country like rats and drown you in the sewer.
You Western? LOL What are you, an Indian?

"If we destroyed that which had been done, we should destroy the volunteer system; because by taking away their arms, we destroy also the martial spirit which they were sure to engender. It was true, as had been said, that the States were so jealous of the preservation of this martial spirit, that after they had adopted the Constitution of the United States, as it now stood, they not satisfied until they had secured an amendment which provided "that the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed."

And your father's "essence" was wasted apparently as you fail to think things through and realize that evil does NOT dwell in inanimate objects. An object can be neither good or bad. An object or tool can only be avoided, used, or misused.
The "essence" of the problem, is in fact the natural state of the nature of man himself. Evil lurks in the hearts of the creature called man. It is this evil that causes the man, or woman to misuse a valuable tool - namely - the firearm, and kill other humans.
The firearm is merely a tool of mankind, and it is being misused by those caught up in the throes of evil.
That sir, is the bare truth of the matter.
Nah mate you are looking at it in the wrong way aye, flip your cock round the other way right side up. The gun is not just a tool.

Its not a spanner, not a tape measure, not a tyre pump, not a vibrater, not a fake boob.

A gun is a tool that is designed to kill.

Not pump up car tyres, give females solo pleasure , not measure a length of pine.

A gun is a tool that is designed to kill.

That my friend is the main significance.

Not quite. China surpassed us in 2010. And it was ENGLAND, the DUTCH, and FRANCE that had originally started exploiting the middle and far east. Just as ENGLAND had originally done with America, Australia, Canada, China, New Zealand and others. Your knowledge of FACTUAL reality and history is ABYSMAL at best. Pull your head out.

So does; water, fire, baseball bats, pieces of pipe, knives, swords, poison, rope, lions, tigers, bears, wolves, snakes, automobiles, aircraft, rocks, tall buildings, hands, feet, etc.

But do you want to know what the NUMBER ONE KILLER IN THE HISTORY OF MAN is? CORRUPT GOVERNMENTS.

Your shortsightedness is appalling. Grow up.

You have a point mate, I think some Aussies dont realise that America does a lot of good in the world.

Every American I ve met in Australia has been a perfect tourist/ migrant.

The problem lies in their own country with a few that are stuck in their ways with the guns.

We only like change here if we see potential for improvement . Sometimes though without acknowledging need for change, no possibility exists for improvement.

And when it come to a good old cup of tea, I myself never have sugar. Sweet enough. With a good drop of milk you dont need it.
