I've read so many articles about guns and killings in the state. You guys should have gun controll :P
One article was about how a 2 year old had gotten her hands on her mother's revolver, while they were at a store. The 2 year old shot her mother, the mother died.

Only times when someone gets murdered in Norway because of guns, is when sick shits like Breivik gets them illegally, or other people gets the illegally.
There's not a lot of murderer cases in this country fortunatly. There would definitly be more of we were allowed to carry guns.



True I would say the big cities are the ones that have the most problems. Why I would want the justice department to focus more on gangs and smugglers since they cause the most death. But the stories that you hear about most of the time are those cases since they get the most emotion out of people.
I really think it depends on the people rather than the object. Down in the town that I lived in pretty much everyone was taught gun safety even if they didn't own one. I don't mind if criminals lose the right to own guns or vote "but that for a different day" but they wouldn't be criminals in the first place if they obeyed the laws. The way I see it if the government tried to pass more gun control it will only keep law abiding people from owning them. Criminals will still get them from illegal sources.

One place that has the tightest gun control is Chicago but they have one of the highest death ratios.

The problem is they pass more laws to control the people that obey them but they don't do anything that actually involves going the ones causing the damage. Which is almost elusively gangs and drug traffickers.
If the US was anything like Mexico were it next to impossible for the citizens to own guns legally " you really have to jump through hoops and hurdles to even get one" then I believe we would have way more death than what you hear about.

This is why I wish we could have at least one president that has the backbone to actually secure the border instead just say they will work on it. Securing the border would be good for both countrys keeping guns from going to the US to mexico and keeping drugs from coming over here.

Although the one about the 2yr shooting his mom I would put the blame on the mom. One thing I was taught from a young age was you never leave a gun out of your control. She should have had it on her person instead of a place where you don't have it in your control. "Being her purse"

Yeah, Breivik is current champion of gun spreekillers.



Couple of bombers hold higher numbers I think. American isn't in the top 4 spreekillers.

Who knows? My decisions would depend primarily on what the invading forces wanted from me. Some things, I'm okay with; others, I'd rather get away from than go along with. If I've still got my freedom and my lifestyle is more or less the same, it doesn't really concern me a great deal who's in power.

I'm the type who doesn't "understand" force as a method of argument. I'd be frank about what I thought if asked, and would likely write about current events in such a situation, as I feel I might be able to contribute in some small part to the aftermath of the invasion and the integration and reconciliation of possibly disparate cultural values. If the invaders aren't too keen on freedom of speech and the rightful place of open and honest exchange of ideas, well, that's probably the one thing I'd be willing to die "fighting" for. Considering these are people who've hypothetically taken over a country by force, my execution seems inevitable under the circumstances, as violent methods like that tend to stem from a refusal to listen to reason.

Definitely depends on who is invading and for what reason. But then again, I am not about to abandon American forces and side with the invading force over silly political squabbles. I have guns and I'll pull the trigger as I see fit, although I am running low on ammo stocks. Damn these caliber specific shortages and rising ammo prices. I miss the days when I could buy 1000 rounds of 9mm target ammo at Bimart for $175 bucks. I should have bought 10,000 rounds when I had the chance.

Or... The invading forces know better than to even bother the vast majority of the south!
Capitol changes to Texas, and I move to Europe.

Most of the U.S. military is off in other countries already, so National Guard and various reservists would be the ones that they'd have to defeat, and I'm fairly sure that an invading force would have to be large enough that we'd see them coming and be more than prepared for their arrival. Even small tactical strikes would barely cause much of a hick-up in our military operations.


I swear there is almost always someone who says everything on my mind so elaborately. Thank you kind sir for posting this. Then again, wouldn't I already be drafted into military service? What more could I do than get shot at?

probably become a POW with no resistance, mainly because an invade army is limited by the Geneva convention to place you under arrest if you don't resist and POW are actually given a range of rights as well sooooo.....oh, and if a country dosnt follow this they most likely become a enemy of humanity, i think ive talked about something with nuclear bombs or chemical weapons, in a similar way on another thread.
mainly its would end up being something like red dawn, were everyone moves on normally except for some foreign military checkpoints and the occasional spout of violence, which is way better than what was going through your heads, just sayin.



lol, just provin a point

Well England did get 'taken over' because William became the first Norman king of England.

America is the greatest country in the world. The only way we could be destroyed is if we destroyed ourselves. So if we were invaded, it'd be by a large amount of neo-liberal socialists.

What would I do? Throw bibles at them.

Why would I do it? Because then they'd run away and cry about it on tumblr. Those that didn't spontaneously combust, of course.

How would you do it? With my arm, silly.

Good question. Crunchyroll think tank ftw.

I hope they take down this corrupt government and bring peace and prosperity! Just kidding, as that's unrealistic, but it's going to be Invasion of Yugoslavia (1941) all over again, which means no one will try to fight in order to defend the country.
