Yes.

You argument only reinforced my assertion.

So you are in favor of the manufacture and distribution of hydrogen bombs?
Are you saying that if someone has the money they should be able to buy a hydrogen bomb?
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

machine gun?
Cool story, hombre,
try telling that to the ATF when they bust you for your illegal st ...

You asked for it..here it comes:

Since the Firearms Owners' Protection Act of May 19, 1986, ownership of newly manufactured machine guns has been prohibited to civilians. Machine guns which were manufactured prior to the Act's passage are regulated under the National Firearms Act, but those manufactured after the ban cannot ordinarily be sold to or owned by civilians.

P.S.: I personally know a guy from Florida who owns, legally, a machine gun that he keeps in his firearm cabinet together with some other weapons!

Now you were saying what? Did I hear honesty somewhere?

bowling for columbine (2002)

As an American with three locks on his doors, I found this all a bit confusing. Even here, in Toronto, a city of millions, people just didn't lock their doors. So you don't lock your doors but we, Americans, do. Why is that? You must be afraid of your neighbour. Do you ever leave your doors unlocked at home? "Yeah." "Yeah, you do?" "Where do you live?" "Right around here." "Toronto?" "Around here." "You leave your doors unlocked?" "Yeah." You'd think, as Americans, that the lock is keeping people out of your place. We, as Canadians, see it more as, uh...when we lock the door, we're imprisoning ourselves inside. You don't want to do that. Not really, no.

And you're not afraid? Should I be afraid? I don't know. You live here. I don't think I'm afraid. You're not, are you?

Are we Chinese afraid?

If we are not afraid, why need we bodyguard to stand at the entrance of community? even if we have a large amount of armed police, criminal plolice, traffic police, temporary police, chengguan police, and millions of cameras?

If we are not afraid, why do we shutdown the doors right after we come into apartments? why do we not know who live next to our doors?

If we are not afraid, why do the local police, from time to time warm us to be guard against people around us? (Such slogans are everywhere. Please watch out! Please be careful! Please be aware!)

So, robert still saying how much "safer" china was compared to any country with looser gun control?
The Facts are speaking, and they are speaking pretty clearly.

China is NOT safer than "the West" as a whole.
However that Comparison is wrong, to continuesly try and fail to match up with countries much further developed, it does not do it any good.
Compare china with other developing countries,
and it's obvious it's rather deccent in that comparison - bloody decent so.

Now do tell,
how is getting one of those as easy as going to the shop with your drivers license?
Or aren't there some further steps involved on the way to a legal automatic?

Making parts of europe still more liberal on firearms than both china and the US.
So where's the Correlation you are talking about?
