No. Can't stand hunting.

Yes. We have a different culture here but LOTS of weapons.

But we have more 'Cowboys'.

Clyde this country has more cowboys than cows.

Gee I'm happy to see that you people down there in the republic
are getting along as usual. Fifty dead, dozens more in the hospital
with various gun shot wounds. You know for a while I was thinking:
'Shucks, them people are trying to clean up their act socially.'
You can guess at my joy to see that if any thing you are very predictable
after all. I was very afraid that if I ever visit that place at some
point in the future I may stand out from the crowd. You know, hiding behind
cover, never walking outside at night. Never on pain of death walk up to
a cop while wearing a good sun tan! I am sure that you all will better the
record you set last night in no time at all. Just like the last time I spoke
out on this subject, I know that I shall be reading of a new indignity in
the very near future.
Have a nice day.



edit:
We want a wall!



re-edit;
Not to worry America, you'll find some reason to blame it on some convenient minority, or desperate religious group, or homo-something dark skinned national terrorists.....
it's not your fault eh?

Just our Cowboy Culture.

BTW: A Cowboy Culture may be a negative. Good luck in changing a people's culture.

It certainly is a negative and if we didn't change our culture 20yrs ago then we'd be in the same state of anarchy as you people over there Clyde, and it's really not as hard as you think it is (if you bother to put your mind to it).

Cheers.

Har!!

And what facts are those?

That your country fills our local news with all these stupid acts of firearm violence that goes on over there?

It's nothing for you people to be proud of at all, in fact you should all be hanging your heads in shame.

Cheers.

The USA's Culture, is Founded upon Individual Freedoms.

We know!

The personal freedom to "tool up" enter a club & open fire.

The personal freedom to shoot an entertainer who was acknowledging her fans.

The personal freedom to enter a school & open fire.

The personal freedom to be a "whacko".

Etc etc etc.

Now that's the sort of reply I'd expect from a greedy, selfish and self centered person Clyde. ;-)

You should try the "Cultural Diversity" that's over here then, but then that would probably far to diverse for you to handle.

Cheers.

Sirius B...

Your entire Post is the same as someone ranting against Free Speech. By citing the Criminal Act of Falsely yelling fire, in a movie theater.

As I hope you understand this: Individual Freedom's do not include the Freedom to Commit Criminal Acts.

Sirius B...

You do understand that. Don't you?

Of course, but they "did" use their "personal freedom" to commit those acts.

OR are you suggesting that some Americans are that dumb they do not know the law or in fact, right from wrong?

The USA is just one example of Cultural Diversity. Which The Left, Progressives, and Socialist's say they believe in.


Good for you Clyde, that should shut them commie,
Arab, black "Nay Sayers" up once and for all.
I think we have been much too hard on these people,
after all what do we know? Besides Canada has a very
huge problem with finding enough bricks to put up our
own wall. Next thing you know all them Arab, black, commie,
Jewish, catholic terrorists will stop coming here because
our wall is still not finished!



edit:
When are you folks going to solve this problem once and for all? You need more guns!

The gunman's father recalled that his son got angry when he recently saw two men kissing in Miami. He said that might be related to the attack.
Ya think?!!!

Authorities were looking into whether the attack was an act of domestic or international terror, and if the shooter acted alone, according to Danny Banks, an agent with the Florida Department of Law Enforcement.
International terrorism. Like ISIL tossing gay people off the roof of a tall building?

The suspect was identified as Omar Mateen of Port St. Lucie, Florida.
...
Mateen's father, Mir Seddique
Nice American names so be sure an blame Americans for this.

Mir Seddique, told NBC News about his son seeing the men kissing a couple of months ago.

"We are saying we are apologizing for the whole incident," Seddique said. "We are in shock like the whole country."

The attack had nothing to do with religion, he said.
"nothing to do with religion"!!!

May all followers of the God of Abraham be called home by him tomorrow for re-education.

Think your thought processes are coming from the wrong end.

Haven't you constantly stated that due to one of your amendments, you have the personal freedom to own arms?

With all these incidents occurring, should'nt you be thinking that something is wrong with your culture & that maybe it's time to make some changes to that culture?

If not, then there really is no need for these types of threads as no one is really doing anything about it & many don't want to because of said amendment - My right to own arms is mine & no one shall take that from me...

...SAD.

I got it! The NRA has been saying for years that America does not have enough guns
in circulation, I say: More guns! You should not be so panty wasted about it. Prove all
them liberal left wing, commie, homo democrats where the truth can be found. I am
betting that if you have the courage to follow the good advice of the NRA all of your
gun problems shall be cured in months, even weeks if you are lucky! I suggest that
that your whole country should get their heads out of the sand, and into the world
just as soon as you can.



edit:
Gee you'd think a nation that put men on the moon could fix this little problem. Oops, that right, the Nazis also had space ships, and jets, and every thing as well......
