all you hear about your country is complaints this gun issue is so red neck and gun play and concealed carry is making this whole country a shit hole third world .
I was at a party last nite with some very high ranking people in my community (lots of cash) why i was there i do not know.
anyways someone started talking about travel to the US this summer with their small children. people are too afraid to even go to Disneyland.
I was amazed at all the people who got involved in this conversation and believe me most of the things that were said about the US was like they where talking about some war torn 3rd level country not the great USA that i grew up to love and respect.
The country is broke there are race wars all over the streets. people packing and selling drugs and guns everywhere. The cities are getting dirty and i could not find one person at that party last nite that said they would vacation in the USA in the next 5 years.
I think you have far bigger problem than just guns.
You have had the right to carry guns for many many years, are your streets safer now or your homes no of course not now the streets and crime is all over and everyone wants to pack a gun . kill kill kill everything that moves thats good old redneck thinking.
It is really sad to see the one time best country in the world has fallen so far so fast.
Maybe it is time to throw out all the guns in the us and join the world instead of always trying to be the world police and old western tough guys packing a gun.
In Canada we may not have guns but we have jobs and people living in there homes. The streets are clean in most part and we can still walk on our safe streets.
But all i see here is i need a gun for protection i need to carry a gun in my truck i need a gun to go camping or brother what a sad time you all live in.
the hate in your fellow country men will kill your country.
GOD BLESS America but also please bless the rest of us to
afraid to go to Disney Land ... ?!
pal, i respectfully suggest laying off the booze, and maybe hanging out with different people
that is some sensationalized horsesh!t you're dumping all over the post there
you don't have a very good sense, or rather any sense at all, of the US, and i'd venture to guess you're not well versed in Canada as well
the last gun store i was in, in BC by the way, had at least 20,000 Tula Arsenal refurbished SKS ... cash and carry
interestingly enough, there weren't madmen roaming the adjacent streets engaged in mayhem and robbery
not too far from the gun store, in scenic HASTINGS, where drugs are legal and accessible to all, roaming hordes of drugged out zombies filled the streets, smoking crack and meth, shooting heroin, screwing in the streets
you got 25 million people in your whole country, what's that ... 8% of the US population, about the size of California ... ?
you're welcome to come visit in the next five years, you'll be perfectly safe, no one wants your loonies and toonies
