: Sorry young fellow but your reasoning's gone awry somewhere along the line, perhaps i can help to get you back on track.

: Consider this. For a country to sell weapons of murder to a bloodthristy tyrant is akin to handing a mass murderer a loaded automatic assault rifle in a shopping mall. In either case you have blood upon your hands. It is morally outrageous to suggest otherwise.

: At any rate the US is signatory to a variety of human rights treaties by implication selling guns to tyrants violates these commitments.(YEs the US is a member of the international community).

: The second point you raise is to suggest that people carry guns as a means of self-protection. That such measures do not work can be attested to merely by a quick glance at any US paper to see where the last mass murder took place (4 dead in Oklahoma wasn't it, but then there's propbly already been another mass murder).

Are you talking to me Copenhagen/ If os it made nos ense at all. Aren't you talking to frenchy? He's teh one who said it was OK for Amewrica's proxy armies to murder millions of people in the service of teh bloodstained capitalist ideology.
