Oh wait---I thought it said GUM-free. Singapore has banned both guns and gum, and they're getting along fine.

And Singapore has the right to come into your home, unannounced, and search for contraband.

So does America, they're just are not allowed to go through the door panel with the first kick. The first one is called "knocking". Oh, right, they need to pick up a copy of a warrant off the top of the stack, too.

When guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns.

England, Canada, Australia has removed the ability of a person to defend themselves against ARMED intruders in their own home.

The thug with a gun is going to be bolder if he knows the people he is about to rob do not have a gun in their house.

Why?
I own guns because I like to hunt & shoot, just so happens they serve for defense as well, but lacking any chance of danger I'd still want to hunt & shoot.. Crime, or the lack thereof aint my concern.

Will never happen, because 1) people don't trust the government here and 2) the criminals will always have guns, so common folk should always be armed and ready.

Guns are banned in England, so you know what they are trying to ban now...knives. What next, screwdrivers, hammers, glass?
