I find it offensive, hurtful, oppressive, judgmental, and down right bigoted.
You do not know me and have never meet me, yet you sit from a far and condemn me. It is not fair nor reasonable. You do not understand this gun culture. You have never experienced this gun culture. It is not a movement of lunatics and crazies. It is a part of life that has deep roots in our history and traditions.
My father owned firearms. My father's father owned firearms. I was raised with them and raised to respect them and view them as a liability and responsibility. The best memories I have of my father involve going out shooting.
I believe strongly in my right to own them. Just as strongly I believe that criminals and the mental unstable have no right to own them.
Furthermore, I want to let you all know, I could care less how you live your lives across the pond. It truly is the right of your culture to live how you determine is right. I will not ever judge you from a far. I respect your culture. I ask that you respect mine. You don't have to understand my culture, but it is MY culture, and I ask that I not be attacked for it.

I am not a powerlifter nor am I a bodybuilder. I just want to be big and strong.

I find Kleurs use of the word miniscule to be frightening. As well as the talk about tanks being taken way out of proportion.
Nobody is ignorant here. We know that carrying a weapon is a tremendous responsibility and liability. I acted wrongly. As have others.
But using the word miniscule to describe a mother who draws her gun because her child is in the car with the carjacker...see, we can all twist it to work to our own advantage.
The reality is I would much rather be shot by a drunk friend than know my wife or child has no right at all to defend themselves, no ability to equalize a situation should they choose to do so.
I've made my points more then once. I will now step back and simmer down.
