I carry a .40 S&W. No, I don't feel paranoid or weak or any of that other BS some of you are spouting... I don't think carrying is any big deal, but i've been around guns since before I can remember. Honestly, if your living in a country where guns are a way of life for some, how is attempting to protect yourself wrong? If some asshole decides he wants to kill your ass, what are you going to do? Kick his ass? Whatever.... I've already seen enough "tough guys" come through the ER to know fists don't win against bullets. If you don't want the responsibility of carrying, then fine, don't. But don't try to tell those of us who do that it's weak or wrong... fuck that, i'd love to hear that come out of someone's mouth at gunpoint.
I've been shot at enough, and I don't ever intend to ever just sit and cower because I forgot a weapon. I'd rather shoot the fuckwad threatening me. Thank you and good night.

I wonder if and who was packing heat at the gathering's I've been to.. it really makes you think twice about the whole idea of meeting a bunch of random strangers from an internet message board designed to aide in criminal activity.




dawg this board is to aid in growing mushrooms, not a crimiinal activity. It is also a place where ideas are shared and rights put into practical use. We cool we cool. so what if someone is packing and you don't know and you at a gathering, consider yourself lucky you have a repsonsible and sensitive gun owner present.

we cool, you aint got nothing to fear from the people here.

I am against most gun control measures and have no problem with legally registered owners carrying. That's a citizens' right to do that. But it just seems like a can of worms - a way to make problems even worse. Maybe learn martial arts and break an attacker's kneecaps or elbow?

I once had a gun pulled on me by a mugger when I was walking home late from work. I know if I busted out a gun, things would have gotten bloody - he would have been spooked and blown my head off or I would have blown his head off. You really cant pull out a gun when there's one in your face - I think I would have been taken a bullet in the head. I just gave the guy what little cash I had and ran. The cops caught him the next night...

I am glad things happened that way.

Im sure you get shot at frequently  :smirk:

Maybe if guns wasnt so easy to get you wouldnt be held at gunpoint that often nor would criminals need to have one to threaten people. Why risk getting shot when you mug someone, better just kill them right away.

gun laws don' t make it easier for criminals to get guns. Just like drug laws don't make it harder for people to get drugs.

One good thing about living in a country where guns are illegal is that hardly anyone ever gets shot.




in a country where handguns are illegal. no one should be getting shot, the
statistics on hand gun violence for the UK are actualy through the roof in
comparison to those in the US, same applies to most countries that have
very restrictive laws regarding ownership of hand guns, in canada homocide has
risen 12% from 2003 to 2004, although hand guns are not illegal in canada
the laws regarding them are quite restrictive

in 1998 there were aproximately 76million hand guns legally owned in the US
in 1997 hand gun ownership was banned in the UK, no one could legally own
a hand gun after that. Strangely, the crimes involving handguns jumped
by 40% in the following 2 years, hasnt the murder rate increased in the
UK enough to generate discussion on execution again, something that
your 'civilized country did away with in 1964 because it was 'barbaric and
there was no evidence that it curbed crime"?

Emory University recorded 18 fewer serious crimes with each execution we have
here, not that it's actualy a deterant, only an additional option for violent
criminals, When the death penalty was abolished in 1964 in the UK there
was a substantial increase in the murders occuring, this is of curse with
restrictive laws regarding the sale and transfer of hand guns, the rate is still
climbing but since there's no legal handguns it doesnt make any sense

Quote:

he official figures for gun crime in England and Wales in 2002/03 were announced in January 2004. There were a total of 24,070 firearm offences of which 57% (13,822) involved air weapons, the highest number of offences ever. The largest increase in offences was seen with imitation firearms for which there was an annual increase of 46% to 1815 offences.

Criminal statistics England and Wales 2002/2003. Supplementary Volume 1. Homicide and Gun Crime (edited by David Povey). National Statistics. January 2004





in 08/2003 the BBC erported an increase in gun related crimes of only 3%, a
considerably slower rise than previous years
http://news.bbc.co.uk/1/hi/england/london/3195908.stm

Surely the Brittish government is doing something about the epidemic of murder in the UK

I wonder what's next on the BAN list for the UK? being the safe country that
has no guns, they shouldnt need to place a ban on knives, Especialy since the murder rate shouldnt be at a 10 year high

Nah, they'd never ban something as innocent as a pocket knife from the hands of
the innocent population, certainly not in a country where bar fights are just
something that buddies do to bond with each other, hell who doesnt like to
go drinking with their mates, I punch you in the eye, you stab me in the liver,
we all go home and have a great night and do it again tomorrow

Of course it's not the people that are to blame, it's those damned rappers,
there's been a noticable increase of movie posters storming into bars and
public meeting places and killing innocent drunkards trying to poke knives in
their friends back side, I'm sure that if you guys just kill off Eminem that
the crime in the UK will grind to a halt
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/entertainment/4412194.stm

of course with the increase of nonlethal weapons to aid police in the
apprehension of criminals, they wont have to do any work from here on
http://news.bbc.co.uk/2/hi/uk_news/england/cornwall/4427640.stm

you guys should definately take a hint from your bastard cousins across the
deep blue, people dont kill people, inantimate objects do

No i don't get shot at frequently... i'm not living in afganistan... I did do a rather long tour of duty in the middle east. I was shot at by 6 guys in a beat up dutsun pickup truck doing the arabic version of a drive-by with AK-47's. I was on the side of a communications antennae, and the guy right below me working on the bottom adjustment mechanism caught a 7.62 with his foot. I also got lit up driving through Saudi with a Marine convoy.. nothing major, but bullets hitting anything near you is still scary. After that tour, I've always carried a gun... not that here is anything like over there, but it's better to have it and not need it than need it and not have it. Had we been rolling around without weapons, I wouldn't be here today.

Come on man, that isn't true. Like 10,000 gun murders happen in the US every year. We have about 10.

Hence my statement that hardly anyone gets shot. It's cuz noone has a gun.

Stabbings are common place though.

well one of my very good friends has a FFL (federal firearms licenses) and he ALWAYS carries unless he goes to a bar or fed build etc where you can't carry. He sells $100,000 worth of firearms a month and is the leading SIG dealer in Florida. He has told me there are many rules when you can or can't shoot someone. I might be a little rusty on this but I know if someone breaks into your house you can let'em have it. In Florida your car is an extension of your domain as in your house where as if someone is trying to force there way in while you are in it you may shoot them. But if you are able to leave the situation safely then it's not OK. As in when that black guy left and had his back to you and you were not in danger then you may not shoot him, or if he is trying to drive away and leave and not raising a gun at you then you can't shoot him. These laws vary a great deal by state though.

On a second note someone very close to me was sleeping with his wife and one of his friends came into there house piss drunk and shot and killed him. It was changed his life a great deal. He is now a devote Christian and goes to church more than anyone I know. Since then he hasn't touched a gun.

Scottish homicide rate hits ten-year high Dec 15 2005
SCOTLAND'S homicide rate has reached its highest level in nearly ten years, fuelled by a culture of violence, drink and drugs.

Figures released yesterday show that in 2004-5 there were 137 victims of killings - murder and culpable homicide - 29 more than the previous year, and the highest total since 1995.

Glasgow remains the city with the highest annual homicide rate in Scotland, with 55 victims per million population, more than double the national rate of 22.

As in previous years, knives and other sharp objects were the most common method of killing, accounting for 72 victims - the highest recorded in a decade.

In almost three-quarters of the cases, the main accused was known to their victim, while 18 per cent involved strangers.

The new figures from the Scottish Executive prompted Cathy Jamieson, the justice minister, to detail the measures that were in hand and to promise moves to tackle the "cultural acceptance of violent behaviour" prevalent in some communities.

As revealed in The Scotsman last week, such initiatives include expanding Strathclyde Police's violence reduction unit into a national "centre of excellence" to share best practice for violence prevention.

Ms Jamieson also listed new laws, such as those creating tougher penalties for carrying knives, and licensing curbs on binge drinking.

"For too long, violence has been a fact of life - cutting short too many young lives and undermining our collective hopes to create a safer, stronger Scotland," Ms Jamieson said.

"Serious violent behaviour is a problem which rarely affects those living in our leafy suburbs. It is, however, a harsh daily reality for too many people in hard-pressed communities."

By the end of last month, 189 people had been accused of the killings, again the highest total since 1995.

In the 127 cases where the state of the alleged killer was known, 45 per cent were drunk, 15 per cent were both drunk and on drugs and 10 per cent were on drugs.

More than half the cases have so far resulted in a conviction for murder or culpable homicide.

Kenny MacAskill, the SNP's justice spokesman, said: "What is utterly appalling is that Glasgow has a higher homicide rate than Belfast and is more than double the Scotland-wide rate.

"We need to address the knife culture and also vigorously stamp out our growing gun culture. The underlying roots of these problems are drink, drugs and deprivation. These need to be targeted, but we need to make it abundantly clear to those who use guns, knives or other weapons that they will be shown no mercy in our courts."

Margaret Mitchell, the Conservative justice spokeswoman, said: "The criminal justice system is haemorrhaging due to a lack of police on our streets and the operation of automatic early release. Some of the homicides are committed by those who should still be in prison."
