That's why THIS: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=M2HV089go6c  Doesn't happen in America.


"NORTHeastern Mexico". I wonder where do their guns come from.

Where a lot of illegal guns in Texas come from...Mexico

Yes many of them come from AMERICA.

With that said, why don't we have cartel wars in America? 

It's because we have an armed people.

In Mexico, guns are illegal, but the criminals get them and take over.
In America, criminals still get guns, but the people have the backs of the police.

That's why armed cartels are not roaming the streets here, and police stations are not under attack.

Most probably come from the Mexican military or Police (corruption) or through the BATF (more corruption).  What I can pretty much guarantee you is that fully automatic weapons are not coming from American civilians.  They are too rare and too expensive.

There is at the very least a BATF background check.  

Done by a shop assistant? BTW wikipedia says BATF controls only sellers. So how is it checked?

It is called in to the ATF, ID and any purchasing permits scanned, and name is run.  Paperwork is filled out and must be kept on record for a number of years.

Michal may have noticed the signs behind the firearms in the photos he posted noting that Federal laws regarding purchase would be recognized.  

Yeah... The first one is to be older than 21? What are the others two? One cannot wear a prison uniform or a foreign military uniform? One cannot be an evil alien?

The first is 21 to buy a handgun OR handgun ammunition.  Second is 18 to buy a rifle or shotgun or their corresponding ammunition.  Third would be to have valid identification (for the BATF check and yellow form I mentioned above).

No, these are free men who are not cattle like you ex-communists. 

Your extrapolations about a Country I doubt you'd ever even been to are matched only by your phallic fixations.

You write that in the USA people are raped, robbed or murdered all the time. The state is too weak to protect the citizens (or the citizens do not want to be protected) so everyone own a gun (or a dozen). Guns are able to be bought everywhere including internet shops and supermarkets. Even small children own them and are taught to shoot. The state also cannot provide medical healthcare and education for its people. Authorities from all political options speak all the time about God and religion. The state regularly starts wars with other countries - these are the characteristics of a third world post-colonial country like Palestine, Syria or Somalia.

Nice headline with no attached article.  Like a lot of your posts - a stupid statement followed by no evidence.

Did you really just post a picture of Walmart that is extremely old? They don't sell guns in their stores anymore, atleast the urban ones.

Rural ones, maybe. But they have scaled back alot. I know my local Walmarts do not carry weapons in the Outdoors section. Oh and they don't allow the sale of pistols either.

Oh really?

Yeah right.  If this were true and the bodyguard were a Polish chick I'd have long ago emigrated.



Yes, vamrat would totally give up his gunz and third world/fourth rome gangsta lifestyle and live in Michal-Kalinaland for any of them (though preferably the brunette on the left).

But it is strong enough to have the largest proportionate number of citizens in jail in the world.

Yeah, I forgot about several things: world's biggest prison ratio, forcing confessions under torture, jailing people without trial and great influence of the army - these are also marks of some third world dictatorship.
We get it.  America is filled with evil yahoo cowboys who enjoy actions never seen in any other part of the world, ever. Your first hand accounting and experience of American society is spot on.

http://online.wsj.com/article/SB10001424052748703367004576289230488920802.html
Which isn't too many, and as I said, since I live in an urbanized area, the Walmarts around me do not sell firearms.

Plus Firearms laws differ state to state. IIRC you just need a photo ID in some states.
Incorrect, all states must comply with federal regulations.  Your example doesn't happen, and if it did the store would lose its license.

Well, tell Brunette on the left that she has a secret admirer in the US.

EDIT, heck, you can tell both of 'em if you'd like... Wink

IIRC the one on the left wasn't married when I've worked there few years ago, which can't be said about one on the right - though if my memory won't fail me I'll tell them, when I'll meet them :>

I have two Wal-Marts near me.  One sells rifles/shotguns; the other doesn't even have paintball guns.

I own a Romanian SAR1 (AK47 style) and a Winchester Model 1300 20 guage shotgun.  And an old off-brand .38 special.

The tone of this thread is in itself disturbing, on an Orthodox Christian website.

Now correct me if I am wrong but hasn't there been a big scandal around the ATF, guns smuggled down into Mexico under their watchful eye and then for some the same guns to pop up back in the US and be used against folks there?

Second sentence: You are not wrong.

When the perps are the gummint, they're always teflonated--that is, until some kind of scape goat is needed.  For the rest of us, especially the people killed and their friends and families, yeah...big scandal.  (This might end up in "Politics"  Shocked )
