Well, my brothers and sisters, I'm going to serve two samples of food for thought on your plates:

1. Thankfully, the American Revolution succeeds for a number of reasons.  Chief among them is the fact that the King allowed gun ownership in the Colony -- there were no gun bans here back then!

2. Unfortunately, the Bay of Pigs Invasion failed for a number of reasons.  Among the principal reasons is the fact that the Dictator did not allow gun ownership in the island nation -- there was not only a national gun ban, there had been a national confiscation of privately (and previously legally) owned rifles, shotguns and handguns!

God forbid I should, again, lose the right to own firearms for the pleasure of punching holes on paper or knocking down steel plates or, God forbid, the need of defending my family or myself from an armed and dangerous attacker.

In closing, each one of us has a decision choice on the legal gun ownership matter.  It's great that we do live in this Bastion of Freedom!  Additionally, I am not going to debate or defend my position (conviction) on the matter.  Enjoy the food I shared with you, my brothers and sisters.

I've no argument with any of that, Cabo!

Ok course not Big E! "Socialist queers" can only opperate state owned, redistributed,  and sanctioned property....we'd never see one on an RE!

I'm trying to imagine what a state owned/sanctioned Bullet would be like.  If it was anything like the cargo van I bought from the county at their vehicle auction many years ago, it would come with brakes as some kind of weird luxury extra that you apparently had to ask for ahead of time!   :o

This of a DNEPR! The Soviet Union pretended to pay workers to assemble the bikes - and the workers obliged by pretending to assemble them. I found "new" bikes with missing rod bearing shells, missing piston rings, valve seats that were never cut, drill bits broken off in oil passages, carburettors that were never drilled for fuel and air passages ...... so anyone even THINKS an Enfield has QC issues - I beg to differ ..... Gub'Mint produced would give you some, for CERTAIN!

"One more thing.  Where in the hell do foreigners get off snivveling about our way of life here in America?  What is running through their minds to think it is absolutely O.K. to voice ANY opinion [other than to the other unlucky citizens of their own country] on our politics, type of government, political situations, rate of crime, laws, or displacement of the engines in our cars, or any other matter that is, perforce, absolutely none of their damned business???"  oldsalt

Br. oldsalt, are the above comments related to my "food for thought" post?

Vince: Let's not conflate the issue. Keep it on gun-related-homicide. Thats the statistics I posted. They tell a story you do not want to hear, and so you run to  'crime rate' , swimming pools or the constitution.

BTW, the regulat british cop on the beat is not armed. Off course there is such a thing as gun-related-homicide. That is the numbers I posted. Sure the baddies will go to knives or other weapons when guns are not around. There will always be bad eggs, and they will do what they they do. i suggest to keep them in prison longer. Taking guns away reduces the number of guns avaialble to be used illegally, makes it more difficult for them to kill people. Most illegal guns enter the market legally. Then they are sold in the grey market, dare I say gun shows, and on to the dreaded alleys. Some come from over the border illegally. Cut down on that too.

You could try to dismiss the numbers as 'numbers'. Might as well burry your head in the sand.

There is something seriously wrong when the homicide rate is more than 200% over the british. Is'nt it ?

No.  But I liked your thoughtful post.  I don't care to be thoughtful when confronted by comments made by folks that do no even live in this country but feel free to offer their two cents on matters that are totally internal American affairs.

Are you contending that if we announce to the world that we will never again take umbrage to anything that any member of any country says about our internal affairs, and further that we will refraim from any answering comments, that we will then be better liked?  Possibly loved?  Let 'em freely slap their jowles [to us] about anything they don't like and we will mearly grovel.  No....Wait a minute....that is what what our government is currently doing!  I just now remembered that Obama has spent considerable time during numerous trips abroad apoligising for America being such such terrorable country.  Doesn't seem to have worked.  They continue to hate us even after the President of the United States has done a lot of international groveling at the highest level.  So how could I, a dumd 9th grade drop out from Walla Walla, resonably be expected to influence the 'foreign hate level' one way or the other?  I'm thinking the chance of that happening are about the same as the chances of a tornado assembling a Boeing 747 as it passes through a junk yard.

It does seem as though some folks in other countries despise us.I think it is because we are a world-leading nation.Others would not care so much if we were failures.We have usurped them all and they do not appreciate it.It is probly a human nature thing.It does not matter.What matters most is that as a nation we keep our minds on keeping the Republic as it is,free and equal.I believe we should concern ourselves very little about what the rest of the world thinks of us.We should only take from them what is useful to us.They have no knowledge to impart that is relevant to our success,and most of them are morally reprehensible.We have reached this point of being very successful with little help from any of them,why should we concern ourselves with them now?Maintain peaceful coexistence and so on,surely,but let us chart our own course.We,here in this country,will always be the best judges of how we want to be,and how we should be.

 Well done and correctly stated, OldSalt and Single.......Of course they dislike Americans,ScooterB,they always have.....Or at the very least,while the populace of whatever country held a positive  opinion because of our generosity,etc.,the controlling
gov't saw us only as The Golden Fleece. We are to be bled/milked and eventually defeated,if those fuckers were to have their way,which they aren't going to ......

Lahti35, I hope you get it all sorted out!

As for the most recent comments, I personally (your mileage may vary) find them so far from reality that I'm not going to bother responding.   :P

Gotta get to work now, otherwise I'd suggest everyone pop open a cold frosty one!
