I didn't mean the "your" as in your very own guns, but more of a generalisation. I thought that was obvious, as I do not know about how you handle guns.

What I mean is, that most of the illegal guns in your country used to be legal ones. And that the guns used in most shooting incidents were bought by "law abiding citizens".

Great, i think we can wrap this thread up now. Thx for the summarization Becky.  ;)

No discussion needed, Americans know best. That's why children go into schools and start shooting everybody. Supah-smart.

Gets annoying seeing all the Aussies and whoever think they know what's best for the American people. All big things have small beginnings, you don't think more control would lead to the bans?  Get for real.
No where near annoying as a loud mouth who can't read.

Thanks for proving my point.  The people running this country are bad enough.  Thank god for people like you are living where you do.  I'm a loudmouth?  Do you see me trolling the Aussie section of this website spouting out crap about how a country should be run that I've never been to and having no business arguing and pushing my viewpoints?  Thanks for the laugh bud.  I don't give a damn about your country, I mind my business and only put my thoughts here in the U.S. section... the place I live.

It's funny how you anti-gun people who don't even live here are the same ones trolling every single gun thread in the U.S. portion of the forums.

The news is suppose to be unbiased, reflecting actual events so people can decide what is right or wrong for them. Now it has only been turned into an avenue politicians can use to influence the population. I haven't seen hardly any news cover that covers the pros of being a gun owner, it is always the cons of owning a gun. There is pros and cons with owning anything that we have today, so why cover the other things and completely shun guns? Don't they get it? The people really have lost faith in the news magazines, news papers, or news channels. What I read I take with a grain of salt half the time, but I do show news on this thread that happens to be covering live events. Even then they are still biased and I try to tell the other side of the story, only to get mocked and called a liar.

A man's ethical behaviour should be based effectually on sympathy, education, and social ties and needs; no religious basis is necessary. Man would indeed be in a poor way if he had to be restrained by fear of punishment and hope of reward after death. - Albert Einstein

It would appear that people who want to control gun ownership in the USA ,have no intention of following the same guidelines they want applied to everyone else.

They refuse to put GUN FREE ZONE signs on their lawns,and have armed body guards .

Ho hum.
This is why there can be no progress on many issues in the US I find. As soon as someone mentions they have a 1 particular belief/desire, they get thrown into a group (liberal, anti-gun, etc) and with that they inherit (whether rightfully or wrongly) all the beliefs of the group.

Why dont you just leave and go to an "Americans only" forum if you dont like open discussion.

No privately owned media news source can ever be truly unbiased.

Listing the cons is pretty much the function of the watchdog press when bad things happen.

The media don't go out of their way to list the pros of ice cream during a salmonella outbreak, for example.

Covering the pros is the job of the ice-cream manufacturers marketing departments.

Come on now. Surely you wouldn't prefer government owned media news sources to privately owned ones. Talk about biased.

" Mighty little force is needed to control a man whose mind has been hoodwinked; contrariwise, no amount of force can control a free man, a man whose mind is free. No, not the rack, not fission bombs, not anything —you can't conquer a free man; the most you can do is kill him" - Robert Heinlein
