Thread Name: Guns, to my friends here at Mudcat
Subject: RE: Guns, to my friends here at Mudcat
ok, I have a fews things to admit, One: yes I am new to Mudcat, Two: I have been in folkmusic longer than most of you: Three: If you can't stand the heat get out of the kitchen! 4, I think I have made some friends here, and maybe we disagree about some things, but I will not attack you personally. That is what America is about. If you don't want to own a firearm, fine, but please don't try to insult me to advance your cause. I Deplore violence! I hate discord! War sucks. I want to see a wonderful world...no robberys, no murders, no presidents avoiding rape charges by invading other countries. Ok, I have made probably half of you mad. You love it or you wouldn't be reading this. If you can handle it hang on, more to come! I saw a lot of feed back from foreign (to US viewers)users. Ok guys, you in England and such. Who did you look to in WW1 and WW2? Like today, we had no reason to be involved in any Balkan war, but for your kings and lords we got involved and lost 3/4 of a million of our people. We used to learn a lot in history class, but no longer. I have many guns hanging on my walls. Most haven't been shot in years, and unless I am threatened will harm no one again. I cannot say the same for their history. A spanish mauser was used to surpress their civil war. A Turkish Mauser was used to kill " Allied Troops" in WW1. Two SKS rifle symbolize communisium and the damn fear I had to live through as a child. Christ! Our teacher in 6th grade told us we would be incinerated by thermoneuular bombs! Now Bloody Bill has sold us out to China and you want me to give up my guns? Oh, and I didn't mention the use of the two Lee-Enfields did I? We neer-do- well americans ( I could be classified as native american, by and by,). The Lee-Enfields, won't kill black africans again,Nor Turks, Nor Irish, Nor Scots,Nor anyone else. I recall an account of a London newspaper where a five year old was hanged. The poor waif didn't weigh enough to suffieciently kill himself ( for stealing bread ) that the hangman had to grab onto the poor child and hold onto him until he was dead! And you English want to tell us about " Gun Control!

admittedlly, I realize there is double speak here and like Rick I want to get back to music. The first amendment, like the 2nd, like the 10th, mean what they say. I respect our overseas friends but I am an American And had I wished to be disarmed an go through another Cologen I would make passage with Bonnie Prince Charlie Two Never Happen!
