‘nothing to see here, move it along, get out of my business you dirty foreign hippy, liberal, socialist piece of shit!’

and one more thing…

‘GET OFF MY LAWN!’

If you respond negatively I just may stand my ground!!!

Guns don’t kill people. People with guns kill people.

I think you’ve got a T shirt idea there my friend, I love it :roflmao:

Trying to convince Americans to give up the guns is just about as futile as getting them to put down the bible. I’m afraid that within the borders of the United States, bibles and guns will be sold in record smashing numbers long after we are dead and gone…

More people were killed by motor vehicles during the same period. Around 1.8 million. Yeah, I know. However, in a democracy people can decide what they want. The majority of them don’t want guns to be banned.

I want cars to be banned. Ain’t going to happen and even if it did it would be undemocratic. Sometimes you just have to let things go and allow people to shoot each other to death.

The “fun fact” somehow omits to mention that a lot of them were criminals whose deaths were net wins for civilized society. Like your hero Saint Tray-Tray, for example.
