Y'know, I don't feel terrorized by the Constitution

or the Bill of Rights; maybe that's just a GFW Canadian asshat thing?
Guns in bars. No background checks at gun shows. No permits to carry required. No restrictions on how many guns a person may buy (in some cases now it’s one per month).

What Americans don’t seem to understand is how crazy they look to most of the rest of the world. The reason they don’t understand is because of their one-thought tyranny.

Americans are tyrannized by 1776, The Second Amendment, The Bill of Rights, The Constitution and other colonial-era artifacts. They have been brainwashed into believing that those are the only thoughts there are. This is not freedom. Freedom means having a choice. If they could accept that there are other ways of thinking then they would have a choice! That’s what freedom is about and what many, if not most, Americans don’t understand

Got news for you, asshat: I've got lots of choices. You just don't like the ones I make. And since it appears you've been deleting comments you don't like, you don't care much for actual argument, do you?

I just left a comment, pointing out that- among other things- your declaration of the US as 'one of the most violent countries' doesn't hold up real well; we'll see if you have the integrity to publish it.

I seem to remember something about Canada not having any gun laws until 1968.

Prior to that there was no - or precious little restriction on having and firing a machinegun or semi / full auto 20mm cannon if you wanted one - and could afford to feed one. I think there were grandad's rights for keeping them after 1968 too.

I think Canada had a lower homicide rate than the US at that time, while the US had more state level restrictions plus the NFA.

oh well, why would a fuckwitt journo bother to check anything out before delivering a polemic about shooters?

Have they realized that their papers are loosing circulation for just that sort of thing? meanwhile bloggers are walking all over their lawns and they can't do a thing about it.

Why does anyone give a rat's ass about what some Kanukistani Socialist "thinks" or writes anyway?

(PS Keith, it's "losing" not "loosing", they're two different words with entirely different meanings.)

That's not a bug. That's a feature. We're liable to do anything, so I suggest you be polite. Don't poke the bear and all that.
