Re: Bibles! Religion!

The question is do you believe in the god described by offical leaders of Christian, Jewish, or Muslim religions. I answered yes without giving it much thought. As the question is writen I should have answered no. I do not believe the "Offical Leaders" are necessarily correct. I also do no...

Re: A Separate Reality

I'm not quite sure how this subject got around to the Japanese in world war two, but here we are. Japan had an intrest in getting different raw materials from various places in Asia. The United States and England more or less told them to withdraw from their conquests. Japan didn't want our navy int...

Re: BANG !

"Yes that's what I responded to" in response to my reply to his post. Uji, the questions that you asked had little or nothing to do with what I wrote in my post. I've never been to Central America, and have never writen anything about it. Not on a post in this Forum or anywhere else. I wr...

Re: BANG !

Does this mean you're not open for discussion? Did you read what I wrote? What do you think I've been doing? Why do you think I believe it's all or nothing? As for gun laws they vary by State, County, and City. Each have different needs. Some have concieled carry laws. That's a good thing. Central ...

Re: BANG !

"wise one" wrote Our main concern ought to be the other 93% of gun deaths. That figure includes suicide by firearm. Suicides make up a very large portion of gun deaths. In those cases the gun is just a tool for the person wanting to die. But we must blame the gun. In Germany where gun owne...

Re: BANG !

The figures in that artical are flawed. Suicides will use whatever means at hand. If not a gun, poison, knife, jump off of a building or bridge, ect. If you take the suicide numbers out the accidental deaths are only 5.5%. Also if you look closely at the figures, the math is wrong. Also that comes t...

Re: BANG !

Please tell me where your got numbers on gun deaths, they don't match anything I've read or even heard of before.

A gun kept in your house is more likely to kill family or friends. The guns in my house only shoot things that I want them to.

Re: BANG !

Your reply causes me to wonder if you concider the murder of 18 childern something other than a crime. Murder on any scale is a crime. No one can be sure if the principal or others at that school having guns would have been able to stop the killing. However it is certain that those people not having...

Christmas

Everyone may not agree with this poem, but many will. Mostly I'd just like to share it with you all. Christmas isn't Santa Clause with reindeer that can fly. It isn't decorated trees, so pleasing to the eye. It isn't just a single day when we should all be kind. If you examin Christmas, this is what...

Re: BANG !

I've added suicide to the uses of a gun. I did this because it keeps comming up. A gun is nothing more or les than a tool. Like many other tools a gun can be very dangerous if not handled with the proper respect. It can be used for many things. Among these are self defense, supplying food from natur...
