Response to Starboard Tack (Reply #22)

Sat May 3, 2014, 11:45 AM

25. I wasn't addressing you, but I know this is an open board, so, here goes.

 

I don't care what other countries laws are, their country, their laws, what I do care about is US law as it pertains to US citizens.

The RKBA is the law of the land, whether you agree with it or not, and, as I read your posts, you agree with it, just not the CCW aspect of it unless there is a pressing need.
I respect that, you seem to be a reasonable person when it comes to debating.

(Disclaimer) This whole pro/con gun debate doesn't really get my juices flowing, I do own several handguns/rifles, but I have alot better things to worry about.
What I do object to is those that would erode our Rights through uninformed emotionalism and downright false info, from both sides of the issue.

What the UK's laws are shouldn't have an impact on what US law is, 2 totally different cultures.
The UK has restrictions on free speech, should we enact the same laws to comport with the UK?

No, we shouldn't, as I have stated, the US isn't the UK and I hope we never become like them.
We have our warts and ugliness, but, they're ours, not anyone else's.

And, as an addendum, SecMo seems to post these articles as flamebait, but refuses to discuss them except to accuse members here of stalking/following, disrupting, (that's a good one ), or accusing one of being a RW gun troll.
