Peace Through Superior Firepower
The fact that you do not have these rights is what bothers me. Now read the next part very carefully, so as to not misunderstand:Originally posted by TC
In Britain it is not a right to be allowed to carry firearms. It is not a right to defend your property at all costs. I, personally, agree with this. Britain, as a result, has a much lower proportion of firearm related crime. Hell, many of the police in the UK don't carry guns and, quite frankly, don't need to. People in the UK have the right to speak out if they disagree with this. They aren't told to 'shut up' in any way that carries legal backing...
If you had the rights, and did not choose to exercise them, thats great. You dont have to.
But if you wanted to exercise those rights, good luck trying to get them away from your government.
That is why I defend my rights so vigorously. Once they are taken away, it takes (usually) a revolution to get them back.
Someone mentioned the WTC, and things being done here that are incursions on our liberty, I am opposed to those incursions. And as far as "racial profiling" goes, last time I checked, all the terrorists were Middle Eastern men. Stands to reason that 98 year old grandmothers dont fit the "profile".
