Start worrying about the USA and not other Countries, spend the money here.

ALL the countries currently involved in war need to do this! Plus they need to forget about space travel, Hadron colliders etc etc ...... focus the money and the attention on their own citizens.

Thanks for the link ...... what a fascinating read! He most certainly wasn't a 'nutter' though, and I think a bit of a 'one off' because of his army background. No-one else has done anything similar(with a truck and explosives), have they?

I don't know, Ouija. To me he was nutter, because he took things too far. In some ways I could understand were he was coming from, some of his fears I mean, but there was no need to kill innocent people (specifically children) just to make a point. Wrong kind of action from my point of view.

As to your question: Well unfortunately yes, since then we've had a couple of attempted mass murders in the U.S. who've tried and failed. Yet, somehow by luck or chance, these vehicle bombs didn't go off. So thank god, the universe, or whatever, they didn't happen and kill anybody.


Quote

On April 20, 1999, Eric Harris and Dylan Klebold planned to use two car bombs as the last act of the Columbine High School massacre, apparently to murder police and first responders. Both car bombs failed to explode, though Klebold's detonated at 11 PM instead 11 AM as planned, but no one was injured.

Quote

A car bomb which had misfired was discovered in Times Square, New York City on May 1, 2010. The bomb had been planted by Faisal Shahzad. Evidence suggests that the bombing was planned by the Pakistani Taliban.

You'll haft scroll down a little bit to find them in the list, it's after McVeigh.

Could `nt agree more we had a bunch of cougars in our yard that almost got our dog, so worried about the grandkids comming over ,we now go out with a gun handy :)

Oh Damn! That's scary as hell, man. Carry with you a Ka bar fighting knife for backup, as well. Those damn cougars are quick and sometimes it's hard to shoot one when it's already on top of you. They're sneaky b******* and like to pounce on you out of nowhere. I mean you don't even see them sometimes. :o

Had a cougar cull our herd of geese a few years back. He hunted at night. I only saw him once up in a tree sittting there watching the geese. I live on the edge of a city.


You got a gun, right? Seriously, I know you got to have at least one.

And it's funny you should mention the part about the cougar sitting up in a tree. Had a lady tell me a while back, she saw one sitting up in a tree in her backyard. And she lives almost in the middle of the town, but in a quiet neighborhood. Said it was just sitting up there, staring at her, as she walked on by and was carrying groceries into the house from her car. She locked the door and called animal control, but it was gone by the time the police and animal control got there. The scary part, she said she would of never known it was up there when she got home, unless the next door neighbor's dog behind his fence hadn't been snarling, growling, barking, carrying on like something was extremely wrong. She just happened to look up at what he was barking at and there the damn thing was, sitting right in the tree, watching her.

I have seen the soccer games :)


How come Soccer games have so many fights and riots, but USA baseball, football, and hockey ( college through the pro ranks ) this is pretty much a never happened or happens thing?

No guns at either, yet UK sporting events have more violence?.....Actually, as said, USA as far as I know, have none.
as I said the UK is a far more violent society.I have visited the USA a few times as well as Canada and I can never get over the fact that when you go in a bar in those places people actually speak to you and are friendly.90% of the time I walk in a bar in England it feels
like someone is going to smash a bottle over my head because my accent isn't local to the area or some other bloody stupid reason
I really am pleased our population can't easily get firearms.

Then a hundred million gun owners who may be great with a gun might not be so good at chemistry. I don't know much about making ammo but that's a lot of gun powder in a lot of wrong hands. I'm not talking about making explosives, I'm talking about making explosives on accident or house fires at the leas

The Internet is like a fountain of knowledge Ive heard. Perhaps we could get a recipe there.

Yea, but I'm just sayin. While guns take responsibility, they don't take science to operate. Making ammo takes chemistry. I'm a good shot but the only class I ever got an 'F' in high school was chemistry while I was generally well above average in most other classes. I'm sure it's really not that hard to make ammo but I'd rather most people get it factory made. Besides fires or explosions, many people could overload their shells which could be bad or make duds which could get them killed by a perpetrator when the gun doesn't fire. Instructions or not, there are bound to be many shoddy bullets made if everybody had to make their own.

i was in the army and worked with a lot of american soldiers and they said the same after witnessing a drunken night out with us .the british are hooligans .the single reason our murder rate is lower is we cant get guns .it really is that easy.

I'm sorry Sakari but we had a meeting and we all agreed to take everything you say at face value.


;)

War is an ugly thing, but not the ugliest of things: the decayed and degraded state of moral and patriotic feeling which thinks that nothing is worth a war, is much worse...A man who has nothing which he is willing to fight for, nothing which he cares more about than he does about his personal safety, is a miserable creature who has no chance of being free, unless made and kept so by the exertions of better men than himself.

I would sue the safe manufacturer...unless you left the key hanging beside the safe as I do (but I never have anything worth stealing in there, it is just there to safeguard my papers in case of fire). Even cheap safes, properly mounted and filled with sand, cannot be opened without considerable work, to the point that it makes hardly any sense to start drilling it unless very desperate for a gun or you have Prince Albert's duel guns in there) . And a metal cabinet, even with a combination lock (mostly as cheap as the metal cabinet) is NOT a safe. It is a metal cabinet.
What you seem to be advocating is to lock away all weapons in such a way that they would be useless for their intended purpose (which I'm sure you understand) and if one does not do this they should be held criminally liable.  And when these episodes of mentally ill shooters still continue?  What then?  The next step, of course....  I fully believe that the owner should be held completely liable CRIMINALLY if a weapon they are in possession of is used to kill anyone.  It is a responsibility no different than say, drinking and driving. But gun control folks don't ultimately want responsibility - they want to control the rights of others to suit their own mores.  I think they are suckers carrying the water for the government in an effort to take away the 2nd amendment and I hope that if the day comes that law enforcement actually comes for the guns we will see a second American revolution.

  Imagination is the power in the turn of a phrase.

Asteroid, actually, I don't know you. This thread is the first I ever saw you and I understand the real world just fine thanks. I hope you haven't mistaken me for a liberal gun control fanatic. Calling me liberal would be bad enough in itself.
To both of you:
Firstly, I could really give two sh!ts about the side effects of banning ammo. I hope that never appens. I don't own a gun but if I did, I'd be the first ameteur chemist risking everything I mentioned. Second, nothing I said was unreasonable or worthy of a smart comment. This is an open conversation, I seen something someone said, and I understood the sarcasm, so I commemented on it and the possibilities of such an action.
