Not theories. Well only related to Aurora. And there are many reasons for them.
It is interesting. I don't really what what to believe. Other than I will follow it closely and see how well they go together when more eventually comes out.
I'm betting that guy they have winds up dead though.
And no, I'm not gullible. I can believe anything that has believability with some coinciding facts.
And these conspiracy theories on Aurora are using facts to puzzle together the theories. So, it has me interested. I'm not sold on it. But I'm interested.
It's funny how everybody considers honesty a virtue, yet no one wants to hear the truth.
Well this should end this thread.
Oh well grow balls and get over it. Your kind is what's wrong with America. Your to big of a pussy to except anything
You use Australia, do they have gangs and drugs like America?? Do they have blacks, Mexicans, whites, and Asians all living in the same city. Y'all are using countries that are nothing like America
It's amazing they continue to let you say this garbage daily. You're one of the most ignorant and uninformed members on here. Get a life.
Australia and the US are quite similar. Both large and diverse, far away from their mother land of Britain, with much open space and previous gun cultures.
You are a crazy person. You can't use proper grammer and you also failed to acknowledge that Hot Sauce was right about Japan.
White is 92%, Asian is 7%, and 1% other, very diverse huh
Again Japan is very different than America, you can not use a country like that to measure what would happen in America
Japan has a completely different culture than ours. If Americans tried to uphold honor like the Japanese then it would be a different story. I mean were talking about a culture where men commit suicide for offending people or by letting loved ones down. America is a highly populated, multi cultural nation with ghetto's on one corner and wealthy neighborhoods on the next. If there was ever a place where people needed guns for protection its the US.
And if the president tries to use executive privilege to bypass congress and the constitution then we will have a civil war in this country. And it won't go to well because the cops and military personnel who would be asked to take our guns are themselves the biggest believers in the 2nd amendment.
Its simple to me. Liberals want to make it illegal to own certain guns or any gun truth be told. How has that worked for drugs or for alcohol during prohibition? It doesn't work and criminals are the beneficiaries of such laws. How you can refute that is beyond me. Its illegal to own drugs yet they are everywhere and are obtainable by anyone, even high school kids.
And those figures on Australia are correct from what I've seen. Also in Australia you have to store your legal gun unloaded and must keep the ammo locked up in a separate location. Wtf? How are you suppose to defend yourself? By asking the intruder to hold on a minute while you get your gun, go to where the ammo is, unlock it and then load your gun? Stupidity.
Leave us gun owners alone. That or ban everything that kills people and especially kids. No more swimming pools or toys with chokable parts. No more cars or four wheelers and dirt bikes. No more dogs....yes dogs kill children every year. No more cigarettes or alcohol. Wait we already went over how banning alcohol works...scratch that. No more football or basketball since kids die during sporting events as well. Heat strokes kill kids every year. No more sun since it produces heat. Wait we'd freeze to death then. Hmm....thats a tricky one, damned if you do, damned if you don't. That kinda sums up this whole situation nicely.

Using the stats from the OP would be like saying around the time we freed slaves a very large proportion of our pop. died, and then blaming it on blacks while 'forgetting' to mention the civil war.
Oh Jesus Christ Again with the Nazis confiscated guns myth...
The 1938 German Weapons Act...
The 1938 German Weapons Act, superseded the 1928 law(which was created by the Wiemar Republic to combat violent political groups like Hitlers Brownshirts and the Communists) As under the 1928 law, citizens were required to have a permit to carry a firearm and a separate permit to acquire a firearm. Furthermore, the law restricted ownership of firearms to "...persons whose trustworthiness is not in question and who can show a need for a (gun) permit." Under the new law:
Gun restriction laws applied only to handguns, not to long guns or ammunition.
The 1938 revisions completely deregulated the acquisition and transfer of rifles and shotguns, as well as ammunition.
The groups of people who were exempt from the acquisition permit requirement expanded. Holders of annual hunting permits, government workers, and NSDAP party members were no longer subject to gun ownership restrictions. Prior to the 1938 law, only officials of the central government, the states, and employees of the German Reichsbahn Railways were exempted.
The age at which persons could own guns was lowered from 20 to 18.
The firearms carry permit was valid for three years instead of one year.
Jews were forbidden from the manufacturing or ownership of firearms and ammunition.
Derpa fucking derpa der... The 1938 law actually increased access to guns for the average citizen, except the Jews. But whats the point of debating about facts here?

The 30 million starved to death in the Ukraine is completely inaccurate bullshit.
Could you please provide the website link with all this "intelligent research"
If they are claming 30 million people starved to death in the Ukraine, when it was closer to 4-5 million in all of the USSR, I seriously question the accuracy of any of the other bullshit cited in your bullshit research.
The Nazis didn't take away guns either.
There are a lot of holes in your "research"
Bottom line is the OP posted some idiotic chain letter/facebook status with data that is absolute trash.
Then we have a guy come in and spam the thread with Aurora conspiracy theories.
And people trying to rationalize the ownership of assault rifles....
This thread absolutely ridiculous. This issue is much bigger than just guns. To think that's it's that black and white is retarded. This issue is a multiple layered and complex issue and sorry "If we only have an assault weapons ban than it will solve the problem" is ludicrous.
We live in a society that glorifies death and violence, (video games, music, movies.)
We don't have the proper resources to help families who have a loved one that's suffering from mental illness.
We have lost respect for one another, just look at our political conversations or even conversations on this board.
The sad thing is there are those who see this as an opportunity to further their political agenda and will use this horrific incident as a cover. to me that is repulsive and down right sinister.
We are ND
humans..... ugh they make me sick. like a rabid pack of dogs.
I got it from your mom while I was pounding her
The sad part is part of the reason we've lost respect for each other is because we can flame the hell out of anyone we want to over the internet and through texting. I believe it has a direct impact on how we act in real life.
Could you remind us who the Nazis exterminated/ targeted more than any other opposition group?
Derpa derpa to you, idiot.
Fides Quaerens Intellectum
Seppuku was performed through WWII by the Japanese soldiers, and I read about an incident that occurred not too long ago.
Instead of seppuku they have turned to self-immolation, in the recent decades.

They dont slice open their stomachs anymore, well very rarely. But they do jump off buildings and hang themselves. Their suicide rate in the corporate world is ridiculous. And if they are ruined financially they will kill themselves to benefit their families. Doing harm to others for no reason is very taboo and would shame the entire family. Completely different culture. I mean good lord, one of their army captains was still carrying out guerilla warfare in the Philippines until the 70's because he hadnt been relieved from his post by a superior officer even though he was told the war was over several years earlier. Thats honor. Something most Americans know nothing about anymore sadly.
And no none of what I said is absurd. I think its absurd that you think bad things will quit happening if we ban certain guns and ammo clip size. Thats as absurd as it gets. You will never take away our hand guns and as the shooter at VT demonstrated, hand guns are very lethal. And yes even with a 12 round clip.
And how many Jews died in the holocaust?? This has to be the worst argument I've ever seen. Congrats on being dumber than Hot Sauce
So what are the numbers if you just ban semi-autos, hand guns and extended clips? People with rifles and shotguns can't defend themselves?
