To live in fear like you seem to must herald a life of shuttered misery.

are you seriously asking that question about the video he posted in regard to the Luby's shooting in Texas? You need to do a little research on that video before you ask such completely ignorant questions and make completely ignorant statements.

Wow. Are you 10? Do you live under a rock?

Never said I was a trained MMA fighter, nor can I dodge bullets, which is precisely why it's great living in a nation that isn't over run with ever-fearful, paranoid, gun nuts. I just train the best I can in Krav Maga and Kempo, so I don;t have to hide behind a gun

You're a trained martial artist? Well, that explains a lot. People who constantly talk about breaking boards and how they can beat everybody up tend to seek attention. Why do the majority of martial artists have this fetish of showing off or constantly talking about their skills?

See what I did there?
I sure did -well played
Where did I say I could beat everyone up- I can't. I never show off. I only mentioned the martial arts to illustrate that it's great to be in a culture where I don;t have to walk around paranoid and fearful, always armed, that it's great to know that I can defend myself without having to have enough weapons to impress an Afghan warlord. Besides, we don;t break boards anymore-just concrete blocks

That just would NEVER happen. You and your Australian friends are just so enlightened. Thank goodness.

/sarcasm

No you gun worshipers do just fine on your own, believe me. Just read many of the posts here and on other message boards and forums. When I was unfortunate enough to have to live in the U$, I carried, but way too many go way overboard, but there's no way the overboard gun group will agree with that naturally. Oh by the way, we ARE WAY more enlightened here in Australia, than the U$ will ever be. It feels pretty dang good to know we can go anywhere, anytime and not have to worry about gun violence, as it's quite rare here. That sure seems enlightened to me, as opposed to living in heavily armed, paranoid fear all the time. That's NO way to live, but hey, to each their own

And the vast majority of gun owners don't walk around paranoid and fearful with enough weapons to impress an Afghan warlord.

I don't care about the law. I break it when I'm doing 85 mph on the highway or when I roll through a stop sign.

I keep hearing the "paranoid" word and "hiding behind a gun" term.. I'm really trying to grasp that... where are you guys coming up with that ?
Does wearing a seatbelt in a vehicle , make you paranoid ?
Does having smoke alarms in your house , make you paranoid ?
Does wearing a helmet when riding an ATV or motorcycle , make you paranoid?

If you answer no to those questions , why does carrying a firearm make someone paranoid ? Please help me understand this....

If you don't care about the law why would you make a sarcastic comment about wearing a bullet proof vest ? Just curious.

I love threads like this. The hoplophobes and simpletons can't help but out themselves. Makes it easy to see who has zero credibility when they post in other threads.
