Listen, - Cotton eyed Joe, your always going on about your War of Ind. Truth is we'd given up on bothering to cross the pond just to get in a blow. The real reason you wanted independence was because Britain was in the process of abolishing slavery which didn't suit the likes of slave owning traitors Washington and his gang, Also because you wanted to keep hanging women for witchcraft (though in reality cos they knocked you back) as in Salem, that Britain had long phased out.You can have a gun? Seriously? Can you have this?I can have a gun, I have to pass a background check and I can't just get any firearm but that's not very different from you. I fail to see how the Bill of rights gives you protections that the government can't take away nor do I see why owning a weapon would have any impact on it. Laws can and have been changed before. 17 times to be exact in the case of the Bill of rights. Many countries have the same rights codified in either their normal lawbooks or their constitutions. So if that's your parameter for measuring freedom quite a few countries have them. So what other parameters do you consider supportive of your assertion that the US is the best country in the world by an order of magnitude?
Our Constitution has been changed 17 times in the last 229 years, post Bill-of-Rights. It's not easily done but it's done by a process. It's not just changing a law. Rights coded in laws passed by legislators or dictated by government are not rights; they're privileges. Our Bill of Rights grants no rights at all; it acknowledges and protects rights.
Tell me a protected right in any country that we do not have here in the US. I don't think you can. Oh, sure, you'll say the right to not be shot by a gun but that right exists everywhere but is guaranteed nowhere. In fact, it is less guaranteed in countries where civilians don't have guns and history proves it.
So, give me a right that any country has that we don't have.
I'll tell you one thing you won't be able to tell me is a country other than the United States where their rights are protected against government by the people, themselves.
Why on earth would any right minded person need all those guns? I can't believe there really yours! What possible threat do you face in Oklahoma? -The odd twister, the odd home grown terrorist - Mc Vey. Neither of which can be -protected against with guns anymore than corona virus.
Do the right thing, sell them and give proceeds to the World Health Organization!
