Ok before you all tar and feather me..strik my name from this form and other wise get torked off at me...THIS IS NOT something I wrote.....see the inclosed e-mail address...... I posted this to let people know what the LEFT is writeing and saying..... This guy defitnly has some strong belifes.... Keep Left TODAY'S OFFENSIVE TOPIC IS: Gun Control Hey, thanks to all the positive feedback I have recieved about Keep Left. SEND YOUR HATE-MAIL TO firstname.lastname@example.org, (Compliments are also welcome) I try to respond to all emails personally On to the issues (and man, do I have issues, but that's neither here nor there) Ok, first off, you gun nuts really scare the **** out of me. Every one of you I have been unfortunate enough to meet has been paranoid, irrational, and violent, and seem to be the LAST type of person on earth who should own a fire-arm. That said, I don't think anyone should. Private gun-ownership is illegal in Japan, their murder-rate in 1997 was 54. America's murder rate was what, 35,000? Uh, should that tell you something? Stop quoting the second ammendment to me. The "right to bear arms and maintain a well regulated militia" is archaic and out-dated. Tell me: WHY do we need militias? Do you really think a group of poorly trained beer-swilling weekend warriors would last three minutes against a real army? Please. And that King of England, yeah, that ******* is always trying to tell us what to do. We need our guns to keep him from taxing America to death! Uh, I hate to break it to you, but England could have easily crushed the colonies if they hadn't been too busy contending with Spain and France to really care. And all the millitias in Virginy wouldn't have been able to stop them. Oh...and England isn't trying to tax us anymore...you can put the guns away. Seriously, what do you need a gun for? Hunting? Yeah, cuz that grocery store meat is sure hard to catch. Protection? You're twice as likely to kill a family member than a criminal. Who's protecting your kids from YOU? And as if you could draw a gun, load it, and hit a moving target in time anyway. Recreation? OK, see, that's just an example of tolorated psychosis right there. Incidentally, I wonder how you barbarians would feel if you got dropped off on an island to be hunted for sport. I bet you wouldn't enjoy that. You would scream about how unfair and cruel it is to be hunted down when you have no means to fight back. You hunters make me sick. There is NO good reason to own a gun. What is it with you people? Is it a power thing? Are you insecure about your penis or something? (Freud would say you were) It must be a power thing. You feel angry, helpless and powerless, but that all changes when you pick up a gun. You must feel like God knowing you have the ability to end a life. How many innocent people are going to have to die in the name of a pre-revolutionary law? How many people are casualties in a war fought by the same people who scream murder outside abortion clinics? You're all hypocrites and frauds, little boys who want power over a world that grants them none. It's time to grow up. I don't understand. But then, perhaps rational, intelligent people truly CAN'T understand the need to own a gun.
