We all love our freedom of speech. We all enjoy our right to worship how we will. And they are all protected by our right to keep and bear arms. As my friends, I don`t care if you voted for the right person. I just hope you voted for the right reasons.

: : Hmmmmmm, guess I could get that debate on gun control sooner than I thought!! I just can't resist responding to that last comment Bill.....guess that if the criminals know all their victims are unarmed, all those criminals would have to be in England, no?
: : As for Claberts original comment, I totally get what he was trying to say and I think that HIS final comment was the very best thing I have read in this debate so far....."As my friends, I don`t care if you voted for the right person. I just hope you voted for the right reasons."

: : PS I was talking to DT the other day and we both were surprised that this whole election thing hadn't blown up ages ago.....since she can't get online at the moment, she is sure in for a shock when she gets back!!
: I reserve the right to shoot any son of a bitc- that breaks into my home, and reserve the right to engage in armed revolution should anybody abrogate ANY part of the Bill of Rights. Moreover, I will resist any attempts to disarm me while the criminal element remains armed and a threat to me and mine, and I will take up arms against any government which would attempt to oppress me, disarm me, or otherwise tamper with the Bill of Rights. Is that plain enough? Gun control my butt. I'll tell you what good gun control is - placing a 1 inch group of six shots into the chest of the gang banger who would rob me and rape my wife. Clear it up any?

: (ending this discussion and taking my leave)
As you already know, my feeling are exactly that of Bill`s. I just choose not to express them so clearly. :) As a matter of fact, I bet you didn`t even know I had an automatic 9mm pistol with me at the cabin in June. And like I told you, you were more safe then you knew.
I want to apologize to you, Kate, Bea, Ilse and anyother non-Americans for my comment of being better. Sometimes I have trouble using words to express my thoughts. I think Bill cleared it up some by saying I meant our system (Constitution and Bill of Rights) and not our selves being better.
I am looking forward to our debate on gun control. I just want to have all my facts straight before we do. I also have a story to tell you about having to use my pistol to foil a robbery attempt that six men tried to pull on us years ago. I also have a friend that is a large part of this MB. When we first met, she was strongly in favor of gun control. I did not push, but she now owns 3 guns and is thinking of having a custom rifle built. You will have to ask her where she stands on gun control now.
That`s about as high on my soap box as I`ll get. Yes I am very well armed and very well trained but I do not agree with those crazy militias. I will do what ever my country asks of me and will also stand against that country if she tries to take any of those rights away. I love her that much, as I do all my friends.
