And because people are over reacting, more people that have never owned a gun before are now purchasing one to protect themselves from those that may go to far in overreacting.
They want the ability to protect themselves from criminals that people like you support trying to rape and kill them and their family in the event that law enforcement becomes too overwhelmed due to the financial collapse in motion right now. Ignorant commiefornian😒
@Rangers Yup - That's exactly what I'd expect some dirty socialist to say! Don't you come cryin' to me when that virus is clawin' at your doors and tryin' to break yer' winders to get in!
@Rangers Wut? You must already have that damn corolla virus if it done scrambled your brain this much, son.
Corolla? I don't drive a Corolla
@Rangers You will! That's how they get ya'.
Nah, I have my own car already, I like my car.
@Rangers I bet it's some commie queer electric car. Prolly a Tesla.
It's a Toyota
@Rangers Yup. Libral. Knew it.
I'm as conservative as they come
Another UK Socialist who is happy to let the government tell her what to eat, when to sleep, when to shit, where to work, etc.
Maybe you should come from the UK and "collect" our guns?
Why do we even let trannies speak

I couldn't have said it any better myself👏
We have a lot of wild boar in Texas. They can be aggressive and they weren't native to the region. They came over with the French and Spanish.
Sorry I left out guns for hunting part.
I guarantee you haven't met one gun owner in your life
@Rangers My man, I live in Nebraska -- lived here all my life. I wish I hadn't met so many. I have had fun in the past shooting guns, I don't personally own one, but I've thought of joining the SRA to meet some friends/network with like-minded people.
By the way, they are justified in shooting looters trying to hurt and kill their family, have no never read a law book in your life? It's fascist to protect yourself and your family from people trying to kill and rape you and your family? Then yes, we're fascists
@Rangers It's not fascist to protect yourself, but it is fascist to stock up on guns with the intent of staging a reactionary counterrevolution (i. e. "If Obamah trahs tuh take mah guhns, hill havta prah it from mah cold deyd hands!")The same fascist psychology is involved with the folks, and I know you know them, I know you've talked to them, who like to talk a game up about how they'd be blasting through all the "thugs" during Katrina in '05, also during the whole Ferguson debacle from 2014ish. The rhetoric got racist and fascist real quick. Again, not saying you should let people steal from you or that you can't defend yourself, but you can't pretend these people and their fascist rhetoric didn't exist.
I wasn't affected by Katrina, so I can't speak on how that was. It's fascist to be willing to fight a tyrannical government that's trying to take away your right to protect yourself and your family? What kind of fantasy do you live in?
The fact that you're scared of people with the ability to defend themselves proves that you're one of those people that would be trying to kill and rape their families if they weren't armed, but as long as they are, you're not going to even think about it. The second amendment was written for people like you.
@Rangers, I've said my piece. Yes, staging a reactionary counterrevolution is like, defining to fascism. It's one of the things almost all fascist movements do or seek to do. The Obama Administration was not any more tyrannical than any prior to it, all things considered it's probably one of the least tyrannical governments we've had. Insofar as they were tyrants, they were acting on behalf of capitalist oligarchs.
@Rangers That's just silly. I'm educated and middle class, I don't have a reason to loot, rape or kill. I don't support the death penalty, or even eat meat. It's much against my ethos. Really, I should be afraid of rightwing militias who organize with the purpose of terrorizing leftists, women, people of color, LGBTQ, and everyone else they see beneath them on their hierarchy.
Fascism is killing people who disagree with them, not fighting against tyranny for the greater good. Calling for door to door confiscation and in their exact words "well kill people who say no" which was quickly censored by leftists but not before we heard him say it. You should be afraid of loyal Americans who won't allow you to hurt them and their families because if you try, you will be shot and buried like you deserve. Leftists are the ones committing so much violence, but against an armed population, you're not so tough and that's why you're trying to take away our rights so you can use your mob rule to kill loyalists. Loyal citizens will always win against foreign tyranny on their homeland, this case will be no different, so I advise you stick with words because when it comes to actions, you'll be dealt a quick and swift death if you try to kill your political opponents because you're unable to debate with them. Nobody has any reason to kill, rape, or loot, but people who you support by the way, do it anyways.
@Rangers Reactionaries like yourself are just flunkies for the ruling class. The reality is, right wingers are the ones who do the killing. Since 9/11 in the US, there have been 110 deaths by right-wing killers, 107 by Jihadists (another conservative ideology, just not a western one), 12 by black nationalists and 8 by misogynists/incels. Again, where are the leftists? You've got Lee Malvo, the DC shooter, and who else? I could go on and on with El Paso just last year, etc. The data just isn't on your side, right wingers kill way more. by the way, whose exact words were "We'll kill people who say no"? You didn't attribute this quote to anyone. Your entire premise is built on sand, your logic is faulty -- your argument is not only unsound, it's not even valid. Again, you're living in a fantasy world if you think that regulating bump stocks should cause every deranged fascist lunatic to LARP as Yankee Doodle Dandy at the cost of actual civilian lives.
Dude, at 21, you don't even remember Katrina, so just stop.
@DanoMR98 Did your girlfriend peg you last night? Silly liberals like you are the first to go in a crisis, you think the nasties you rely on to stay in power will protect you for all the "good you have done" for them. In reality, they will savage you first as your ideology makes you such easy, easy prey.
It got "racist" quickly because of those who were perpetrating HORRIFIC crimes (99.8% black). You are just too blinded by liberal stupidity to understand this.
You are wasting your breath talking about guns to a Socialist Brit.
How would a gun save you if a crackhead had a gun pointed at you? Unless crackhead has no ammo, you're dead as soon as you reach for your gun.
No you're right, may as well bend over and spread your cheeks right? You do you and I'll do me, how about that. My gun won't hurt you if you're this docile anyway, so no worries
So, now anyone can see that you've never had a crackhead pointing a gun at you, either.You also apparently don't understand how starving or otherwise desperate people act. They want easy pickings, not a fight to the death. If you don't want to be robbed, you just have to make your place look marginally harder to rob than your neighbours.The problem with the fantasy of gun ownership is that it defies logic and leaves out the part about realism. The thing about gunfights is that whoever surprises the other person gets to use their gun, often killing them. Nobody breaking into your house to steal your precious toilet paper wants to risk their life to do so, they will try to do it undetected. If you disturb them, you can get rid of them by shouting and not blocking their retreat. If you shoot them instead, you are a murderer. Statistically, though, you are far more likely to use it on yourself or somebody you know. Guns make gun owners feel safer but they make them less safe.
I live in Montana where we have castle law. You are allowed tp use deadly force on someone who forces their way into your home. One of my ex's shot a stranger who forced his way through her door while she was alone with her daughter, without her gun she would have been overpowered. Things like this happen, and you'd rather women be unarmed? Yeah... You're so realistic and "woke."
No, she was scared that she would be overpowered without her gun. Being scared of something doesn't make it real. I'm not woke, I'm just not afraid.
You're not afraid because you've never had a gun in your face. That's called privilege, not bravery. I'll bet you're not afraid of being raped either.
No, I just have a better understanding of human behaviour than you. You haven't even had a gun pointed at you and you''re afraid.
Actually I have. I'm not going to spend any time convincing you of this truth because I'm aware of how strong your cognitive dissonance must be to hold such ignorant viewpoints. And I'm not afraid until the lethal end of a barrel is pointed at me - you will be too. Hopefully when you get your wakeup call you aren't the only man nearby, or you're fucked, whether you're scared or not
So you shot him, did you?I don't know why you think I'm weak just because I said I'm not scared. I had a man set a dog on me and fought them both at the same time. I fractured my spine in the fight but I didn't get scared and I didn't lose the fight.
It's not about the virus; it's about how the psychological and economic effects it has had and will continue to have on society — generalized mistrust, widespread panic, transportation slowdowns, shortages of necessities, increasingly strict government regulations, market recession, etc. — all of which can cause people to act violently, and are therefore very worth protecting against.
Its a fact that all gun owners are unstable? What an ignorant comment. Grow up
@TienShenhan Of course they are.No healthy-minded person wants to be in a possession of a deadly weapon, because no healthy-minded person would ever be willing to engage in that level of violence.
You value the lives of criminals more than the lives of innocent civilians, that's why you put civilians in prison for defending themselves and let criminals walk the streets free and don't allow civilians to own guns.
Nobody has the right to execute someone for a minor crime like theft
Exactly, you don't support people being able to protect themselves, and you let illegals roam free because apparently they were unaware that it's illegal to rape children.
We don't need to protect ourselves. It's very rare for criminals to be armed. If you are burgled it'll be when house is unoccupied.
That must be why 77% of burglaries in the UK occur when the owner is home😂
Americans have seen far too many Apocalypse films, and it is very sad to see this virus has reduced my people to savages.
Occasionally when sleeping but burglary is rare. Only know one case personally where a burglar was caught by owner. He just sat on floor and surrendered. His logic was he'd get a lighter sentence that way.
LOLAmericans are a bunch of paranoid idiots. We're not gonna run out of supplies to the point where we have to steal.
Just as I expected, going by anecdotal instead of looking at the statistics, hence why you're liberal, well that and you'd be put on prison if you said something that your queen didn't like.
The police cannot sentence you to death for theft, a judge cannot sentence you to death for theft yet Americans think buying a gun gives them the right to execute on a whim.
It DOES! In America, it's actually legal to kill a home intruder.
And you can legally kill anyone who trespasses on your property. There are some landowners in my town who shoot at hikers.
People insult the queen all the time. No one gets jailed for it
It gives them the right to kill someone who's trying to kill them and their family, yes. The lives of innocent people is more important than the life of a piece of trash who's trying to take the lives of those innocent people. The more you talk, the clearer it is that you place the lives of criminals over the lives of innocent people.
Yet they get jailed for insulting MuslimsMy dad said it's illegal to insult the Queen there. LOL
Must be awful living in America not being able to sleep at night with the hordes of robbers swarming the. streets constantly trying to burgle your. house and kill you.
My neighborhood isn't so bad, but one of my coworkers lives in a trailer park, and said she's had to chase people off with a shotgun on several occasions. She said she almost shot a couple of cops one time.
That's the problem with guns, it's too easy to make a mistake under duress and kill someone innocent or shoot a cop.
YeahThere have been cases of people accidentally shooting their own family members
If that were the case, it would happen a lot more often, but the amount of instances where that happened is in the single digits, whereas literally millions of instances where firearms were used to stop assailants occur every year in the US alone.
That's funny, because in the U. S. we don't give the UK much thought at all.
Well, in the U. S. we value individual freedom and we don't trust our government to protect us. What's more, the average American really doesn't give a fuck what people in the UK think about anything.
Tell me, why do you feel the need to comment about Americans? How do you feel about the Chinese response to the virus (imprisonment, suppression of speech, forced isolation, complete invasion of privacy through google powered metrics)? Funny you don't mention any of these things, because you might be thought of as "racist"? How about this: When supplies run out your beloved Muslim Rapefugees will really amp up doing what they do best. At this point "Americans hoarding guns" will be the furthest thing from you mind. Also, you want to know why we have firearms and ammunition? It is a not-so-subtle reminder to our government NOT TO FUCK WITH US. In faggot liberal states like New York and California (high gun-control states) they have already effected Martial Law -- no thanks. These states are barely American. In the real United States we know how to protect ourselves from our government and from those individuals who would harm us.
@ZeussLightningBolt False. It is not lawful to kill trespassers anywhere. If someone is breaking into your home and presents a threat of serious physical harm or death, you can use deadly force. As much as I would like it to be, the U. S. is NOT the Wild West.
@KrakenAttackin I think I know my country's laws, thank you.
@KrakenAttackin LOL. Ben Shapiro made the same argument. Do you REALLY believe our government will become tyrannical in the near future?
Why do you value human life?
That's because you have no understanding or value of personal protection because your country would rather give the power to criminals than innocent civilians.
@Rangers really? And do you think that holding a gun will solve the problem? What about the police and the army? The whole great USA can't protect her citizens? 😄I live in a third world country and it's illegal to obtain a gun without permission and the permission is given in specific cases.My uncle and his family lives in the USA and i know a lot about the U. S and i have never heard the things that you have mentioned, it's just another excuse to obtain a gun!Are you happy for all this violence and deaths that occured in schools around many states?
Those occur because of an absence of security in those places, over 95% of all gun related homicides occur in gun free zones. When armed civilians step in, only 1/5 the amount of people are hurt or killed compared to when they call the police so they can wait at least 5:00 (best response time from police) to stop them and give them all the time in the world to achieve their goal and get away. Obtaining guns is a good thing because it scares criminals to know that civilians are able to fight back against them, this is statistically proven and guns are used to save far more innocent lives than used to take innocent lives. It's estimated that between 500,000-3,000,000 innocent lives are saved every year in the US through the defensive use of firearms, compared to just 2,000 innocent lives lost when gang members and cases of assailants against officers are removed.
@Rangers is it only light weaponary that they are selling or they sell medium weapons such as m-16 and other rifles?
"Medium weapons"? 🤣🤣🤣🤣 I can't stop laughing. Everything from rifles to pistols and everything in between as long as you can pass the FBI background check, fully automatic firearms are heavily restricted and require registration, a process that will likely take at least a year, you can't even have a speeding ticket, and they demand around $10,000, the cheapest one you can find will be $5,000. The rest of the guns are semi automatic only with bolt actions, lever actions, pump actions, and even muzzleloaders among them. Black powder guns aren't considered firearms and as such don't require a background check to obtain, but who cares, what is a criminal going to do with a musket? Fire one shot, totally miss and spend the next 3 hours trying to figure out how to reload?😂.
