Well, I grew up in a rural area, and I can't remember anybody ever needing a gun except to hunt or shoot some varmint. The biggest safety worry for the kids was to not drown in the river or get a bloody nose in a schoolyard brawl.

Luckily for us here in America, we have a Bill of Rights. Not a Bill of Needs. Or Wants.  I was born with this right and shouldn't ever have to explain why.  Do you ask why Rosa Parks " Needed " to sit in the front of that bus ?

But in my personal situation, Like I have stated I live in a very rural location.  If a car load of  " Smash-and-Grab" burglars start busting down my door, it's my God given right as an American to have the right to defend myself, family, and property.  And if it takes a 30 rounds, 50 rounds, or 100 rounds.... It shouldn't matter.  

Will that ever happen ??  I surely hope not.  

Is it possible ?   Yes.

But I will NOT EVER give up my rights granted to me under the 2nd Amendment.

( And I apologize Beckys Mom.  I misunderstood your previous posts.  Thank you for clarifying your position )

I wish our children stop be exploited by politicians to further along their agendas. This is sickening and borderline creepy, the parallels to Stalin and Hitler is unreal.

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

As you clicked like ( as if to agree )  on the arrogant comment above, that tells an Australian that his comments mean nothing to you guys.......But now you are telling me that there is no fun in ignoring the comments you find that mean nothing..  This now begs the question  - It leaves you to do what?  Fight with them?  Argue non stop until you are blue in the face?  Or Be pleasant and discuss it like adults ? .... Seriously what is left  IF you find it boring to ignore meaningless comments ?  I am asking you this because I have no idea what logic you have for answering what you class as meaningless comments ? I am not trying to pick anything with you, but I am seriously asking you what logic you have with that?

One last question -  Can you say that Americans ( including those on here )  never make comments ( opinions of their own )  on articles and situations in ref to other world wide countries?  Whether it be politics, religion and other cultural issues ?
It leaves me to take a stand, stick up for my country, myself and my rights. In the grand scheme I don't really think certain comments have any meaning or influence I should say but I am human and sometimes we humans just can't leave well enough alone. Sue me if you must. Some comments need to be pointed out though if for nothing more than what my first sentence says. It's principle.
It seems more often than not "outsiders" if you will aren't offering up solutions or friendly debates or an attempt to understand so much as they are here to demand we be like them, tell us how to act or belittle and exaggerate the things going on here that they really don't have the slightest perspective or understanding of in the first place.
As for your last question, of course I couldn't say that. Can you honestly say that when an American wants to but into the affairs of a foreign land that the people really want us to or care what we think when they're adamant about a certain way of life? Of course you can't. That's also human nature and patriotism and there is definitely no shortage of either on this soil. As for myself, I really don't meddle all too much in foreign affairs. Search all my posts if you like. I rarely stray from the US and US politics forums. I've dabbled in a few European dedicated threads and if I remember correctly I was told to mind my own business about something and that's should stick with where my opinion matters.
Maybe meaningless isn't exactly the right word but sometimes it's hard not to tell some people to mind there own business. So there you have it my foreign friend.

Who suggested on this board any of you should loose your rights?   Even though my question is not about that..

It seems more often than not "outsiders" if you will aren't offering up solutions or friendly debates or an attempt to understand   

As a whole including Americans, who can offer solutions ?  For example, have you came up with any regarding the gun control issue? I think it is rather tough for any of you to find the right solution ..

Quote

   as they are here to demand we be like them, tell us how to act   

Who demanded you all be like them?  Who told you guys how to act?  I might have missed that.. What I saw was a bunch of opinions and people sharing what it is like in their country, I call that adding to the conversation..

Back to what I was asking you about, which was - Who has the right to tell anyone on a PUBLIC world wide forum, what they can and cannot post?  There are better ways to tackle those who you feel are arrogant ..Don,t you think ?

What do the gun supporting American say to other fellow Americans who are in favour of gun control?   If you don't like it, get out?  That would be the most logical thing ?  Is there only room in the USA for those who are on your side and only your side?   ( I know you never suggested it, but I had to ask )

Quote

As for your last question, of course I couldn't say that

I know, because Americans own a right to post opinions on ANY given countries news article and current affairs.. What people tend to forget that, it is a public form and all opinions are welcome regardless of the topic..  Only arrogance suggests likewise.. This is my point

If anyone else did the exact same to an American, they too would be arrogant and would be in the wrong for doing so..

Well I do not agree that you should have been told to mind your own business.. You are on a public forum, you have a right to your opinions like everyone else..  If I saw someone telling you to mind your own business, I would say something to them too, and point out their complete and utter arrogance .. I would be in the right to do so ..

On a public world wide forum, there is no logic in telling people they should not comment on a certain countries affairs with their opinions, no logic what so ever..  Only those that like to comment on what they class as meaningless, are usually those that like to fight and turn it all sour..( I said usually, that means in general not all )

Quote

  So there you have it my foreign friend.   

On a public forum filled with people from all over the planet, there are no foreigners .Just one big UM family lol..  What that means is.. we are not in your country to be known as foreigners  we are ALL sitting at home.... If anything, you could class yourself as a foreigner, as the board is Scottish. lol..And there you have it, my American friend :D

Well said. The one thing I do try to do when I am in the political section of a foreign nation making comments is I try to think before I post and then reread it before hitting enter. I dont want to be offensive to another countries political/social views.

When it comes to my own country I will speak my mind and say what I mean from the heart.

You are one of the people that generally adds to the conversation instead of inflames us. Carry on.

And you are just right to do that.. I tip my hat to anyone who takes a stand for their rights.. I admire people who stand up for what they believe in ...  

We Irish are forever slagging off our own country for fun  lol..But if I were in a conversation about some issue here in Ireland, and someone posted something I found was not right, I would say what I could to put them right, but I wouldn't tell them they shouldn't post, because I used up all my arrogance  on other boards, I have ran out ..I am downloading arrogance 2.0  lol :P  I kid on that but seriously it would be pointless me telling anyone that..

I can however understand the frustration of so many Americans facing debates on line over their gun issues.. I admire them for standing up for who they are and what they believe in .. I have never had anything against that..

Ma'am, you're quite challenging and inquisitive. Your husband must have many gray hairs, lol. Anyhow, I don't know that I can explain myself more than I have. I never suggested that people from anywhere can't make any comments they want. At the same time I can just as well tell them what I think. Telling people what to do or what to say is one of my major gripes and I try to be quite the opposite. But, as I said before, I am human and not perfect and from time to time may be guilty of the very things I don't like. It's just how it is. I may not have 50,000 posts but I have quite few and am here often enough that it should be pretty clear how I feel about certain things especially since half my posts are probably clarifying the other half. I consider myself reasonable and a decent person but in a world made up solely of text with no facial expressions, eye contact, hand gestures or vocal inflictions no matter who you are nobody can know for sure exactly what type of person each of us really are and until then mischaracterization and harsh judgment is just part of the Internet world.

MR_Fess..  I would not judge you in a negative light.. In fact if anything  I like your posts on many topics ..My point was not about you as a person.. It was about how other people like to tell others they don't own a right to post about their neck of the woods..   In my opinion you, me and everyone else here ALL of us own rights to post opinions on ANY given subject.. That Mr Fess was all I was trying to say ....

Mr Fess...each time I read that ID, I think of the Loch Ness Monster.. If you went to Scotland, it would make Nessie happy to have found his long distant cousin lol ... I kid with you, it's just a bit of banter using word play :P

Except when you're around the president or the secret service.

The secret service can then designate free speech zones.

Or, if you're protesting or speaking your mind, they can charge you with a felony.

Ness-Fess... Ha, that's funny. I like it. And you're totally right about the rest. Things are quite heated over here in the USA and I've been known to rant, rave and get pretty defensive at times. Even when I don't like certain opinions I wouldn't tell them they can't. I'll concede that I've told people they shouldn't comment and they have no right to comment but hey I realize how things are here. I don't necessarily mean it and never really expect it. It's just emotions running loose. We all get blinded by our own self righteousness sometimes.
