    There was an article discussing this study in the latest issue of America's First Freedom.

    If I were gun snatcher I'd be pissed, because it smashes every blatant lie that the Brady freaks have been peddling to Americans for almost 4 decades.

    Contrary to what your fat, obnoxious liberal aunt may have told you:

    • Country X does not experience less crime than the US because of better gun control laws.
    • Guns do not have the power to instantly transform sane, law-abiding people into bloodthirsty serial killers
    • Criminals are still able to get their paws on guns in spite of strict gun control laws
    • The crime rate is not tied to easier access to guns.

    Mrs. Brady, I'm so sorry :rofl: :cool:

    Folks, here is the article:

    Oh. I thought this was going to be the "missing link" on how an inanimate object jumps up and kills someone.

    :lol:

    Ten minutes? You posted that ten minutes after Snowman's post? And you write "...amazing that is being meat (sic) with such silence....") :lol:

    I've only just seen it, got the pdf and I'll read it thoroughly with an open mind.

    Ten minutes. Here let me fill the silence for you :eusa_boohoo:

    Now you go get another rough mouthfucking from John Howard. Remember to thank him for the buy back program after he blows his wad in your eye.

    What a poof you are.

    Sorry didn't have my eye on the clock. But yes I did read it. Seeing as you are from Australia which I understand has significantly stricter gun regs then the U.S. I would love you hear your thoughts.

    Settle down Fluffy White Stuff Person, no-one's making it personal.

    Howard's buybacks, both of them, were examples of his style of politics. He is a populist, he will do anything, anything, to maintain power. The buybacks were such piss-poor policy that it makes me angry even now thinking about them.

    I support our fireams controls as they are, but the buybacks were typical Howard grandstanding without any decent policy basis at all.

    "Significantly stricter" ain't the half of it - but if we're going to go there let's be careful to keep grounded and civil (as in the health care threads). First point.

    I like guns. They saved my arse more than once, even though I have to admit they could have also taken me out. I used to own a handgun and a shotgun and I've used a range of weapons over the years. The only part of a firearm that scares the shit out of me is the barrel pointing at me. Other than that I'm fine.

    Now, I'm not going to mount a full frontal assault on the firearms laws in the US. There are a couple of reasons for that. One is that it's your business. Two is that if I lived in the States I would make sure that (a) I lived in a CCW state and (b) I purchased and carried with me the best handgun I could afford because (c) I would be quite prepared to use it if needed.

    Okay, I feel better now. Your turn :D
