To all of you who have replied to me...and there are many of you........We are going to have to agree to respectfully disagree on this one. I don't consider I have lost a freedom because we have strict gun control laws in Canada. I feel fortunate to live in a country where people don't generally feel the need to carry a hand gun to protect themselves.That's right, 'It doesn't matter why'. Just ban guns.
We have less murders, accidental deaths and suicide on a per capita basis from guns than the United states and I am very happy for that. It doesn't matter why....
And this mentality goes all the way to the top of their lobby. SIH, Joe Huffman and others have been taking a Bradybot to task.
And when she can no longer defend herself, just like the sycophant 'Kelli' on the old Brady Blog, she cries 'harassment' and that we must, you guessed it, 'agree to disagree' because discussion is 'futile'.
Now THAT I will agree with. Trying to 'discuss' anything w/ staunch gun control advocates is 'futile' because it will, without fail, end up w/ them claiming we should 'agree to disagree'. In varying levels of politeness.
No. I don't think so.
Why? Because in the big picture, they're trying to restrict ME, I'M not trying to restrict THEM. They may pull some anecdotes out of their @sses to show why they're afraid of all these gun owners but, when the real numbers are shown, they scurry away w/ 'agree to disagree'.
So again. No, I don't think so. And I will continue to disagree w/ them and actively oppose them every chance I get.
