I don't think an idle gun threat from a vegan is really going to scare me.

"However, there's this belief that the US is one hell of a lucky country."

I know I'm going off topic.

I think the US is one lucky country. I'm glad I was born here.

I am thankful to the people who helped start our country and for their wisdom in allowing the citizens so much freedom and for their distrust and warnings of tyranny.

Please post another country that has more freedom.

Other countries allow you to marry whoever you want, but they don't allow guns.

So it just depends on your priorities:

Love or violence?

Love, but I disagree that an inanimate object is violence.
Are the knives in my kitchen killing people????


But getting back to love>>>"marry whoever you want"

So, if a person loves ten or twenty other people, should he/she be allowed to marry all of them.

What do you think?

Do you use your gun to prepare a salad?

Guns have one purpose and it's a violent one. Pretty simple.

Well a completely different topic, but personally I don't believe you can have a truly consentual relationship between one man and 10 women, and vice versa. TWO CONSENTING adults, period.

We do have a standard here: two consenting adults.

Thanks for you for your other comments....another thread I guess

No it's two consenting adults of the opposite sex.

That's not freedom.
