Well, I have long since stopped believing in Hollywood, Santa Claus and the Toothfaerie. I prefer reality, and reality is that less than 0.001% of the crime (other than family brawls and spouse shooting) happens outside cities.
So keep your brilliant ideas in the cities where they belong, and stop relying on massive hypocrites and their giant guns from Washington DC to tell the rural country how to live.

It is not like in this discussion town people are trying to impose their gun mania on the country folk, seems quite the other way around. And funnily they are using arguments that only are valid in towns.

Funnily, I don't care.  I care about the crime.  Let's apply our liberal band aids to where 99.9% of the crime occurs before we revel in rhetorically bashing people we don't politically agree with.

At least 50% of those crimes happen because gun owners are incapable of controlling them, falling into the hands of criminals.

If the majority of gun owners would show the minimal shed of responsibility (instead of: "It is my right to have a gun and I don't care who gets hurt") we would not need to have this discussion.

"The majority of gun owners"?   You don't have a minimal shred of evidence for your dizzy daily BS.

A gun isn't a tool, it is a weapon. They always have been and always will be. The debate can't go anywhere if you deny such a basic and crucial fact.

This is why you need to stay in Australia, because your comments and opinions about America and the idiots behind gun control mean nothing to us.

And yet it peeks your attention..How quaint..  If a persons comments mean nothing to you.. Shot in the dark here  ( pardon the pun ) then ignore it?    Everyone owns a right to post their opinions, once you knock the chip off your shoulder, you may see that..

You're right but what fun is ignoring people. These discussions would be pretty short and boring if we just ignored everything we don't like.

Some times a third party perspective on our laws can be good. They can show us how silly we are being.

In the case of someone who's from a third party, like Piers Morgan, it's different because they try to influence opinion.

I don't think it's grotesque for someone from Australia to comment on the situation in America.

Who knows? They might come up with ideas to help gun owners?

In the end they don't live here, this is true, but they still have an opinion and a right to share it.

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 ?

So very straight forward and true .. This forum was built in Scotland and is set up for world wide opinions .. ( the more the merrier )   It is open for ALL  not just a private section for Americans, British and  Australians  only.. It's for all, including muppets like me  lol

Americans own the rights to post opinions on other world current affairs, just like everyone else.. I find it arrogant to single people out..There is something not right with that line of thinking when you single people out and tell them their opinions mean nothing

Exactly.

America, as much as there is discussion in these forums, is not the center of the world.

I may not agree with some opinions expressed about gun control - from people here or from people elsewhere..

But in no way would I endorse singling them out because they aren't American.

I actually agree with both sides  ( weird but true ) .. I feel they own a right to bare arms.. but I agree with those wanting gun control laws looked at. What I mean is -  In no way means ban guns or take guns away.. It means ( in my view ) tightening up future guns laws.. To be honest, there is no real answer to solve the problem ..I think Obama was and most likely still is under a lot of pressure over this

Neither would I .

I don't have time to answer. Multiquote this so I don't forget and I'll get back to later on tomorrow! K? Thanks.
