Default Pedro, may I ask, is that a fake name?

So much for the MYTH that a person won't protect themselves with a gun.
it sure sounds fake. You a Russian?

Just say no.

I do agree with the right to own a handgun but I don't agree that everyone should have one. For example, a person that has served prison time for an armed robbery that was committed by them should not have a gun. Same thing goes for a combat knife.

I live in Texas. I grew u in the bible belt in Arlington. I saw gun shows, flea markets from a young age with fat, white rednecks selling to anyone who looked like them with no questions asked. I have seen guns sold out of trunks of cars. I have found guns hidden in places(that were not well hidden) as a kid and 20 something in others homes.

The ads here for the sporting gun stores sell Uzi's. CPL classes signs, pawns shops with "we sell bullets now" signs, gun stores signs.

it is just a death culture feeling.

And the people, the gun owners are just rabid with pro-gunness and "they gonna take my gun". It just feels like an overload of it.

Thanks for asking.
Well, I definitely can see how opinionated and stereotypical you are...fat, white, redneck....surprised you didn't mention anything about black gangsta's. You did leave out hillbilly, lifted truck, and coal rollin though.


Here's a funny thing about humans, some are just to weak to ignore peer pressure, or social (?) pressures letting everything bother them, while others are strong enough to not pay it any attention. I can see which one you are.

They made a valid point and all you could do is mentally roll over on your back with a whimper and accuse a poster with 28k posts that has been here since 2013 of being a Russian.

I would like to thank you for the laugh though as you don't recognize the name of a pretty famous baseball player while accusing someone else of being Russian.

You've already used cheap stereotypes and cries of Russians, I just can't wait to see what more you'll sling at us before they ring the bell for your 5th period gym class.
