    Victimization crimes are up in the U.K. according to INTERPOL, Nationmaster statistics, and other international reporting.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    To give you an example, there are lots of private and secluded public beaches here in the U.S. that a smuggler could easily find. I know of many in my own state and even though I have no intention of breaking any laws if I wanted to get an illegal shipment in it wouldn't be too difficult.

    I honestly think they should just start beating on each other, maybe a loose wire will get knocked back in place for a few of them.

    But those are very entertaining to see on the news.

    Politics are explosive!

    With their networks they can get weapons regardless, CCW permits are something that a known terrorist would not be able to obtain, and seeking one would be a fantastic way for them to identify their location to authorities.

    I have never been in or heard of a school with of an active shooter drill here, the idea has been brought up in the legislature but it's not something we exactly worry about.

    the only gun nuts are those who wet themselves over honest people being armed

    we on the right believe in personal freedom and decentralizing power. You on the far left want the government to have more and more and more power and disarming the people concentrates that power in the hands of the government

    many of you far lefties feel criminals cannot help their unlawful acts and you don't like the possibility of them being shot so you don't want their victims armed either

    I've never heard of that either, but I didn't say anything because I don't know what happens in other schools in other states.
