Life In The Wild Wild West

Here near the Colorado-Wyoming border, just about everyone owns guns.

We don’t have any shootouts, except for the occasional murder committed by the police department, and covered up by the district attorney.  We have very little crime, other than bicycles being stolen on the CSU campus and drunk and disorderly college students.

I do worry about being hit by cars on my bicycle (it has happened several times) – but the the thought of being shot has never occurred to me.

Imbecile lefties take statistics from gun-free cities dominated by minority gangs with illegal weapons, and mindlessly transpose that on to law abiding citizens who live in an entirely different world.

(Before any Brits take the opportunity to look ridiculous, I will remind them that our crime rate in Fort Collins is less than one sixth of that in the UK.)

    It’s much safer to walk the streets of most US cities than it is UK cities.

    There’s a simple reason, in the UK you are likely to have your face ripped open with a bottle or risk being attacked by drunken idiots that know decent people are not allowed to carry guns to defend themselves.

    The transfer of human rights to criminals over the past 20 years just reinforces this even more. Most decent people dare not go out in their respective UK cities any longer, the risk is too much.

    There are no human rights in the UK for decent people unless you are Piers Morgan, part of a select few who can live in the exact high cost location that UK bobbies patrol 24/7.

    Most elderly in the UK are tortured to death slowly by hooligans who know they are defenseless. These figures never make the murder staistics, but being tortured to death is murder. The gun levels the playing field for the decent human beings, elderly people would not be so terrified and scumbags would be less inclined to cause trouble when they know there is the potential of getting a bullet between their eyes if they commit a serious crime.

    The school shooting is more of a reason to protect the children by second amendment, not less.

    Apparently, our fearless leader intends to usurp Congress and the Constitution, thru executive order, by banning certain types of weapons. At least that is what our wonderful VP is saying. The same wonderful VP who paved the way for our fearless leader’s endorsement of gay marriage.

    That maybe too late for these Killer Whales trying to survive Global Warming.

    Back in the day, I was ALMOST hit by cars on my bike several times. I was just quicker. ;-)

    I used to work in some of the most dangerous neighborhoods in the US, and was shot at by illegal guns. I was not allowed to carry a gun, and my only defense was running. I am lucky to be alive today.

    I have seen firsthand what causes some folks to be 50 times more likely to commit a violent crime. That culture has rotted from the head down, and is rotten to the core.

    Worth pointing out that most gun crime in UK also takes place in inner cities between gangs. As an higher proportion of UK is urban, this is likely why it has an higher crime rate.

  7. Terry Jackson says:

    There seems to be an inverse relationship here. Gun crime is lowest where guns are most widely held, or put another way, locations with severe gun restrictions on the masses have more gun crime. Population density and gun crime seem to be positively correlated. So do public housing and gun crime.

  8. Steve in the UK says:

    I’m a Brit and totally agree with you – please be aware Piers Morgan is NOT representative of the UK, in fact he’s loathed over here and frankly we’re just glad that he is somewhere else!
    Although handguns aren’t readily available legally over here, that doesn’t seem to stop criminals (hey, crooks not adhereing to the law – who’d have thought it!) .
    Your constitution was set up to protect the people from excessive government, so I hope you do what you can to keep it.

    An American recently said it best “The only thing that stops a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun”. I’d vote for that – if I could.
