Re: Another shooting in Colorado

In the early 1900's the US gvmt. banned alcohol and effectively created the Mafia. Later that century the government declared war on drugs, spent 100's of billions of dollars and created the major drug cartels. Since the start of the war on drugs the percentage of the population addicted to drugs remains unchanged.

So, if we ban guns it is all but guaranteed that the result will be the creation of a black market gun cartel. The bad guys "will" have guns and the average citizen won't be able to protect themselves. Note, it is illegal to bear arms in Mexico. Has it stopped the killing?

Just tried to make you think about that point of view from other countries.

We a free country, too. I feel pretty safe because not everybody carries a gun.
Our mentality? I lived in Babenhausen for 3 years, i was there when the wall cane down. Let's talk about the Turks in Germany, or nearly getting stabbed in the face in a subway in Darmstadt. Germany is full of gangs, more so than I have seen in Houston.

Here is a wake up for you, Americans all have a different mentality and way of life.....

"American mentality" huh? Say it.... Call us John Wayne or Clint Eastwood just once for me. That way I can call you a Nazi and we can cut right through all the ignorant stereo typing.

You actually think that because you work on an American AF Base and vacation in America you know all of us? You are extremely myopic.

What makes you think it is easier to get killed in Germany?
How many people get pushed in front of trains? Stabbed in subways?

I'll keep my guns. You have more than double the crime rate.
Our crime rate is 0.0380
Germans crime rate is 0.0803

You beat me to it, but thanks. The liberals spin machine is running wide open. All it takes is 2 minutes of research on the internet to debunk 99% of that crap.
