Freedom has left the building

In 1866, anyone could buy a gun for self-defense.

In 2006, New Yorkers without political connections can’t buy even this antique.

    1. LOL!
      Freedom = gun ownership.
      If you don’t own a gun, the terrorists win.

    3. I’ve only ever owned squirt guns. Does that mean I have to refill my freedom from the tap every 10 minutes?

    5. That is because now Americans shoot each other than shooting Indians or wildlife. I do not think that 1866’s homicide rate was nearly as high as 2006’s.

      You’re kidding right?

      In 1866 if you killed an Indian you got paid when you delivered his or her head.

      A little less for Mexicans.

      The population was way lower but I bet more people were murdered.

      The point there is the government in a country built on the idea of no government intervention in people’s personal lives intervenes too much.

    8. I don’t get why you americans feel more free when you can’t walk down a city street at night for fear of being robbed at gunpoint. Extreme Poverty + No Social Net + Lots of Guns = You guys are damned fuckwits.

    9. Caio: THAT’S WHY WE HAVE GUNS!

      “I’m gonna rape you!” *BLAM!* He’s dead.
      “Gimme yer money!” *BLAM!* He’s dead.

      Lo and behold the reason firearms are required.

    10. Funny, I live in the US, and I walk around at night all the time without fear of getting robbed at gunpoint. Then again, it may be my penchant for wearing oversized coats and carrying weighty objects in the pockets…

    11. Caio,

      Cause London is any safer?

      It’s not the feeling of having the gun. It’s the freedom to make the decision yourself.

      I’m not American btw

    12. London isn’t safe in parts, but it’s a big fucking city. Besides, in Hammersmith and other nearby places I felt safe walking around at night. Fuck, I’ve never felt safe in even the nice parts of New York, which is of comparable size. Hell, I’ve never felt safe in any American city I’ve been to.

      The point here is not that we all need to tote guns around, it’s the fact that day by day we are losing more and more freedom!

    14. The American government should fear it’s people.

      All governments should fear their people.

      If the people don’t have guns why should the fear us?

      Oh and by the way, I’ve never felt threatened in any of the several major cities I’ve been in here in America: Washington DC, Atlanta Georga, Dallas Huston and Austin TX, Minneapolis and St Paul Minnesota, Los Angeles California, none of these cities have ever frightened me, and I don’t even carry my weapon.

      Maybe Ciao is just a big flaming pansy who gets scared every time a black man looks at him. Are you a racist Ciao? Are you afraid of the big black man? Worried that the monkey might have a gun? Guess what, there are guns in London to, major difference is; in London only criminals have guns.

      So if you’re afraid of a nation that allows its citizens to own guns then fine, stay out of it. I don’t know about the rest of us, but I personally don’t want you here anyway.

    15. Little harsh there, Jeros, but yeah! If you ban guns and shit, the people you don’t want to have them will still have them!

    16. Hah! Jeros, I live about an hour drive away from you, no wonder your opinion sounds so familiar. xD
