    I ran across this article and it made my eyes go wide, lol. It says that we USA citizens have bought more guns than the world's 21 standing armies combined. Whoa. But I am not sure if they are NEW gun owners or what. I personally know of people selling guns to other people, and no record is kept, so I wonder how accurate this article is.

    USA Buys 14 Million+ Guns In 2009 - More Than 21 of the Worlds Standing Armies

    Personally I am not too concerned about being invaded by another country and will sleep soundly tonight. :lol:

    Mods, could you please change the word "But" to "Buy" in the title? Whoops.

    That's been going on since before Obama got sworn in as President and it will continue until his administration decides otherwise how to deal with civilians owning handguns.

    Like what Japanese Admiral Isoroku Yamamoto once said during the World War 2, "You cannot invade the mainland United States. There would be a rifle behind every blade of grass." :cool2: That was in 1940's and he was still right to this date.

    That shows proof that crime actually drops! Yes, the crimes has dropped lately.

    That is because criminals are now likely suspect that victim may have guns so don't want to risk of getting shot.

    If guns are outlaws, criminals will KNOW you are not likely to have gun so fuck you.

    England now has very strict gun law, their crimes has skyrocketed, even toward to cops because cops are not even allowed to have guns.

    Sorry, souggy, he still said it. Each blade of grass is cutting it close, though, so I imagine he meant behind every tree. :D

    Nice humour. :)

    I only found it fishy because... 1940s... Damn that was a time when everyone in the Soviet Union had a rifle, or everyone in Japan had a handgun or a sword... and so on. Yet Japan was crazy enough to try and invade the USSR once in the 1930s. :hmm:

    I get what you mean, souggy, except the part where he cannot decide between a handgun and a sword. No wonder they lost. :P
    But really, the survviing veterans of WWII brought back a passion...Guns! Yay.

    Okay, but another Japanese General Kuribayashi has it says, "The United States is the last country in the world that Japan should fight." Because of the USA of its population, factories, and 2nd Amendment.


    Misquote or not, those ones who has been to the United States of America are well educated when it comes to the war. No country will ever want to invade the mainland of the United States of America unless they do stupid thing to do and know the casualties will be high for them.

    That what people said about Japan... and the Soviet Union. :)

    It's not the population, factories or the second amendment that makes the United States a worthy foe. It's the sheer size of the country.

    The 2nd Amendment is EXACTLY how we maintain a secure free state - the right to bear arms:

    "A well regulated Militia, being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed."
