Oh Golly, the real world. Do you actually think this is an isolated incident.The video showed a mob-mentality execution. Did you even bother to read the text that said that the man didn't even receive a trial?
So which side are you taking Shane, PLO or Israeli?Maybe you need to head over to hardcore talk where they will "appreciate" your viewpoint. I DON'T. Do you know any Jewish people? Do you know anything about the Palestinian situation? This video was blatant propoganda, and for you to equate my love of firearms with anything to do with this video is absurd.
I have seen alot worse on cable and at times even the networks will show clips similiar to these with one of their 2 second warnings before they air it. Have you surfed the web recently, there are alot more disgusting things out there that curious minds can and will find given the opportunity. I know, I have two teenage daughters.Do you have children that might surf the web and find this video? Is it OK for them to watch it? I have a daughter who would be horified if she saw this.
Can civilians own handguns in Canada for SELF-DEFENSE??Yes, we own guns for various reasons including self-defense.
I agree 100% and most haven't a clue what the results are. For that reason alone I think this video had merit.The reality is that everyone of us may have to use our skill and "toys" to take the life of another human being. One needs to face the unpleasant and gory details that are inherent in that task.
I think that comment is being EXTREMELY judgemental. Things aren't the Queen's rule or a Civil Court in the US for the majority of the world's population. You betray your family or your country in the rest the world and death is served up in short order. What you consider a legal trial may or may NOT be appropriate for their circumstances.The point was, that this video showed a MURDER.
Firearms and the world we live in isn't the tidy community that we might like. People kill each other. They do it with knives, bombs, guns and land mines among other tools.It had no merit as far as learning anything about firearms, ballistics or anything else gun-related.
No I do not. But the governments of Canada, England, Australia, China, and a number of other countries in the world believe otherwise.Do you think Canadians have less of a right to defend themselves and their families?
Thank you - that is all I ever wanted in the first place. I too, agree that our passion and love of guns can also be the source of a great amount of violence and human damage. I am not arguing this point.On 2001-06-24 17:14, Dane Burns wrote:
The video under discussion doesn't need to be seen here.
I agree with you on that point.
