    Question The Right To Bear Arms

    I hear that guns are outlawed in parts of europe? Is this true?

    Someone said that only farmers and the like can have maybe a shotgun?

    Is this true?

    Am not a gun owner, but must admit I do love guns... the attitude in the U.S. is kinda against them, but there are staunch supporters who stop them from taking them.

    It costs the democrats the election in the south every year.

    How do you feel?

    just looking for a more worldly perspective.

    In the Netherlands, you need a permit to own guns, but I'm not sure how you would qualify for it. There are rules for knifes, daggers, and the like too; you can't just walk into a store and buy a huge 'Rambo-knife'.
    Very few Dutch people have their own firearms.

    edit: the Dutch population is so densely packed, that I doubt they'd made an exception for farmers (perhaps in rare cases).

    Typical leftist/liberal stupidity, focusing on the effect rather than the causation.

    Banning the product, and hurting everyone uniformly in the process, achieves nothing.

    if theres a demand there will be a supply.

    There is no demand.
    And all my youth passed by sad-hearted,
    the joy of Spring was never mine;
    Autumn blows through me dread of parting,
    and my heart dreams and longs to die.

    - Nikolaus Lenau (1802-1850)

    Real misanthropes are not found in solitude, but in the world; since it is experience of life, and not philosophy, which produces real hatred of mankind.

    - Giacomo Leopardi (1798-1837)

    The ownership of firearms (rifles, pistols, everything) is heavily restricted in Australia also, for everyone's information. Our present Prime Minister (who George Bush called the 'man of steel', lol) John Howard had them banned in 1996.
    All men dream, but not equally. Those who dream at night, in the dusky recesses of their minds, wake in the day to find that it was vanity. But the dreamers of the day are dangerous men, for they may act their dreams, with open eyes, to make it possible.

    Criminals must create a demand for them. How does a person rob a bank without a gun?

    That is sick and unacceptable... you should over throw your government immediately. i would. It is YOUR RIGHT to bear arms... and if your government doesn't recognize it ... you should vote them out and elect someone who will allow you to defend yourself.


    i can get my hands on a gun or a knife in a matter of seconds... it sure feels wonderful... i wish you guys were like U.S. (US)


    especially you... Cosmo.

    I have a licence to own guns and I do. I wish I could get a permit to carry.

    Once you have lost your rights, it seems that all is lost. any politician who is in support of gun ownership will be put in a position upon where he has no power. this seems to be the case in australia. here in the u.s. are right to bear arms is being infringed upon daily, and the future looks grim.
