Me too, and also partially why I drive standard shift. I gave you a thumbs-up to bring you out of the negatives, and I'm fully prepared to go to downthumb oblivion with you.

the way you three stuck up for each other is amazing. I love it. dreamsorrow, if you use a gun, it's more power to you in my eyes. I can't use one, but it's a good thing to have for self defense! :) I voted all three of you up, because my faith in humanity has been restored. :)

There's a point where it gets way to easy to get a gun. Nothing wrong with owning a gun, but it is way to easy to get one in some places. And what is allowed to be owned can be ridiculous as well.

I wish we had similar law with guns as the United States does (I'm Scottish), you wouldn't get as much shit happen if folk had guns to protect themselves.

I've legitimately seen a redneck with a flamethrower...that crosses the line into ridiculous.

Oh really, 27? And how are criminals going to step up from hand guns in public places, like where OP was attacked? Are they going to start carrying around shot guns and rifles? That would be pretty easy for police to spot, don't you think? And that hasn't happened yet in the southern US, where almost everyone does carry a gun. BTW, there happens to be less crime in the south too. Coincidence? I think not. Criminals are cowards at heart. Statistically they're much more likely to just leave someon

I live in England and I'm glad we don't have guns. Guns get into the wrong hands. American school shootings are such tragic things and I'm glad it doesn't happen here

Alright 53 and 59, you both are obviously misinformed about guns and gun rights. 53, you dont trust the system regarding guns??? If you shoot a home invader who is threatening you and your family inside your house you think "the system" can somehow screw up and charge you for defending yourself?? Thats absurd. 59, school shootings are not the guns fault. Guns dont kill people by magically firing by themselves, people kill people. School shootings dont happen because some troubled k

Is it really that bad where you live? I think it's sad that people need to have guns to feel safe. Where I live you would be the one that's in trouble if you would shoot a burglar.

66, while a gun does make you feel safe, thats not the only reason for owning one. People are unpredictable. Owning a gun is for protection against the criminals of the world. And i dont know what kind of fairy tale world you live in, where if you shoot a burglar who is threatening you and your family by intruding on your private property, that you can even remotely get in trouble for it. Hes trespassing in your house. what if hes armed? Are you just going to politely ask him to leave?

Ditto here. Too many shady mother fuckers in this world. I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6.

@68 I live in the Netherlands in a small town that doesn't even have a police station.

#68 - If you search about the statistics, chances of a gun being used against the owner or a family member are much likelier than using it against an intruder. Having easy access to guns also allows for things like mass school shootings to occur far more frequently. Not saying it doesn't happen here, but when you compare these scenarios in a country like Canada vs the US, we definitely don't see as many gun related crimes.

74, Canada is also much less densely populated than the US. If you compare US gun crime to South American nations where guns are banned, you'll see that gun crime is ridiculously prevalent in those places. Also, the murder rate in countries where guns are hard to get is comparable to the US. What difference does it make if someone is murdered with a baseball bat or a gun? Such places also have a much higher rate of bombings. Someone bent on murdering will always find a way to do it. Defending on

Also, 74, such statistics are often drawn up in a biased way. Usually they compare every incident involving a gun where an owner or bystander got hurt only to justified homicide. If you have an accident, and graze someone's arm, that's counted, but if you brandish your gun at an intruder and he runs away without you having to fire a shot, it's not counted, even though simply having the gun protected you.

Are you fucking kidding me? You don't care about personal protection? If my life is in danger, imma kill that bitch. Good luck never getting mugged or raped.

#97 A gun? A *gulp* g-g-gun?? Yeah, a gun. Everyone deserves the right to protect themselves and their property from criminals. Get over it.

the only fun part i can think of would be the frustrating face of the carjacker, when he couldn't work the gears, until he turned towards op with a mean face
