The Dick Act of 1902


You probably won't read about this in the main stream media, because the incident ended the way it should have - the way many past school shootings could have ended, had there been a staff member carrying a gun.

I'm not sure why, but I found this to be funny...

The green back ground behind all the green signs. The lack of poles between the signs. It just didn't look right as soon as I saw it.

The Dick Act of 1902


Was watching a youtube video the other day, the uploader posted two different people calling into 911. Both were ladies home alone. Both calls start out in a very similar fashion. The first call ends with 3 pops. The second calls goes on and on with this lady screaming and pleading for the guy to stop. You hear stop, stop, oh god please stop. The call with the unarmed lady was really hard to listen to. Actually both calls were hard to listen to.

The U.K. banned guns after the Dunblane false flag. Did that stop violence? Of course not. The U.K. leads the WORLD in violent crimes per 100,000 people. the U.S. isn't even in the top 10. Eight of the top 10 are European countries. The two non-European countries are South Africa (number 3) and Canada (number 6). Banning guns doesn't stop violence, it increases it.

The Dick Act of 1902


Really people can you not just let this be?

But since this ugly can of worms is still being brought to the top of the page I would like to point out a couple of things.

1 We were originally talking and comparing death by guns. As previously mentioned. You are not getting very far swinging a bat or a knife in a crowded movie theatre. A gun produces the wackos desired result very quickly.

2 In order for facts to be relevant we must take them from a reliable source and not www.cuzbubbasezs.com . Here try this one from stats Canada. Crime statistics gathered from both the Canadian and American police agency's
http://www.statcan.gc.ca/daily-quoti...11218b-eng.htm

3 You may be interested in the news video of what happens to wacko's without guns when they try and breach Buckingham Palace. In this case he is only trying to off himself because he knows the dagger will not get him to the Queen, but I'm sure the end result would be the same
.http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bEFI_Wsw6U8

So much more civilized


4 This arguement that some radicals have that you don't NEED guns, you only want them in case the gov't derails and its your 2nd amendment right to protect yourselves against the military is sooo dumb. I hate to be the one to break the news, but even if 100 million of your citizens arm themselves with ak47's you do not stand a chance aganist the US army. Unless Billy Bobs gun store has now stocked up nuclear bombs.

5. There is no denying the fact that when there are more guns available there are more death by guns. Period.

Now on to something much much lighter shall we

Great! Know we're dumb.

Be careful. Hundreds of thousands of
men and women have died defending our
constitution, we have an obligation to
do the same.

You people will just never understand.

Do you mean NOW we're dumb. Not know we're dumb

To clarify I never said ANYBODY was dumb. Just the argument. The argument is dumb.

Yes plenty of people have died defending your turf, Same here. People in the military have died. THEY need guns, not the average citizen. Further, some of your own in this very forum have stated they need guns to defend themselves from the gov't (aka US military ). The very military whose young people have died to protect the asses of people who want to blow the heads off their own countrymen and not some overseas terrorists

See the dichotomy

Not to mention all the accidental death by guns that would never have occured had daddy not had that revolver stashed in the bedside table, ect.ect

Sure do...and if that's what it comes
to then that's what it comes to. I
KNOW which side I'm on.

Still don't understand how taking
my defensive weapon is going
to lower gun violence.

Let me get this correct.

You actually believe that you may possibly need to defend yourself from your own gov't., police, military ?? You are not joking. You actually believe that??

It's happened before. If we don't
learn from history we are certain
to repeat it.
