    I guess Roanoke firearms has only sold 4 guns total and each one has been used in a crime.:rolleyes: Maybe they "intended" to put a comma after "After all."

    "We were in the foothills of the Blue Ridge mountains only a few miles from the West Virginia border."

    The foothills of the Blue Ridge? A few miles from West Virginia?

    You were freaking lost and clueless. Get a map.

    Anyone who isn't in handcuffs should be able to bears arms. Nobody grants anything.

    I wish the BBC had a user comments section after the article. There are so many good things to be said in response.

    Just a quick point, but what are we teaching BBC by linking to them? They don't support our goals and they don't allow us to address their lies. So why link to them? Does it serve our goals to teach BBC that they can blatantly libel gun owners and it will sell ads?

    RE: Bart

    Even though we know the Brits think that we should be like them, I still think it is a good idea to know what they are saying about us, because some of our congress critters do want to be exactly like them. I prefer to check a few news sources outside of the US because eventually our media will start at some point to show what the are saying about us.

    Im with Bart. Let's 'ban' linking to BBC, they hate America and our rights and constantly try to re-colonize us.

    References? GRANTING the right to bear arms? The constituion already does that. So, to the BBC you need to look at a gun owners creative writing? What?

    I hate Europe. Sorry UK but you suck now too. Im sickened that the rest of the world found a way to blame US, americans, for what some jackass did. How about blaming him? Oh yeah thats right the UN teaches them that only the police and goverment are responsible, just sit back and they will protect you/feed you/clothe you/breath for you. O'Reilly was right about this - SICK that Europe and the 'i know whats best for you' types slam America and our values - like the 2A.

    Don't you think that is kind of narrow thinking? Keeping to just US sources? Regardless of how fallacious their arguments may be or how misconstrued their facts about our laws or guns, I think it is prudent to at least check in on them every once in a while to see what is brewing, it may not affect us now but it is a possibility in the future. Britain has had similar incidents along with Australia and both have banned guns nearly completely from civilian use.

    The only problem with this "may issue state requirement" is that aside from not being Constitutional, is that it leads to priviledge and connections in order to get a permit just to buy a weapon. :mad:

    Welcome to Europe. That is what its like in most Europeon countries, except for perhaps the Czech Republic and Finland (I have a friend who owns an M1 Garand there - try getting one of those in the UK)
