McCain does not deserve any fariness. Goldwater would never have put the country in danger by placing an intellectual midget like Palin on the ticket.

Nope, you've got that wrong - it's now open season on people from Ohio and possibly those from Arizona.

Which begs the question, if you move from Ohio to Arizona, what does that say about you?

Don't worry, we don't need your empathy. You should save it for the next high school massacre.

There is a difference. Irrespective of the author's hypothesis, I don't believe there is a cause-and-effect relationship between the two. I'm not interested in debating this, so don't bother...

Furthermore, I'm not interested in doing any research as I'm considerably disinterested in arguing gun rights, but I'm sure there are any number of research papers available that will speak to the non-positive aspects of a nation's high percentage of firearm ownership...

Anecdotal examples are rejected, recent news articles are discarded and statistics are right out, straight away. None of that - no - just unsupported opinions and insults, thank you.

SO, just for the moment, I'll stay "On-Topic", even if I don't add the seemingly obligatory insults:

Yes - Any cyclists riding in Canada, UK and Australia who cary guns while cycling MAY be paranoid and insecure, but MUST, without a doubt, be felons for illegal possession and carry of of a gun.

But any of you folks who have no choice to legally carry a gun - do chime in how others should choose.

I have no problems about other Americans argueing when to exercise their right or not, but find those who lack any such right joining in on the arguement to be merely annoying. (Americans living abroad who have yielded their rights by choice are particularly annoying.)

I do, of course, empathize with people in countries deprived of the right to self-defense, with firearms or otherwise.

But I neglect yet another apparent thread rule - any American who dares comment on circumstances in a country where ownership or use of firearms for self-defense is banned, feel free to triple up on the insults and lambast that American with indignity.
LOL! I got some really good extra old white cheddar cheese to go along with your whine... LOL!

Put in as many decimal places as you like, it's still an opinion.

Yeah, we know, but you're the moron that asked.

I don't believe there is a cause-and-effect relationship between the two.

What you 'believe' doesn't matter. Much the same as what you 'feel'. The facts are there as is the data. States, nations, cities, counties, neighborhoods...right down to your own sorry self the truths remain the same regardless of what you 'believe'.

Once again, your 'debating' skills do not fail to disappoint.

The truth is that Britain sent 50-60,000 convicts to America, mostly to Virginia, Maryland and Pennsylvania. Given that they were sent there before transportation to Australia began, it's reasonable to assume that there are just as many descendants of transported convicts in the USA as there are in Australia.
But Americans don't much like to confront the more unsavoury aspects of their past.

No coincidence, just the result of criminals inbreeding.

And the USA had 50-60,000 transported convicts who have been inbreeding for much longer....
BTW, Pennsylvania (where many of the American convicts were sent) is quite close to Ohio, isn't it?

You are quite the 'spin doctor', aren't you?? You gun guys are like that; doesn't bother me though - most amusing really...

And no, I didn't ask for a debate - I asked for you to expand on your comment; which you failed to do, mind you. Regardless of how you FEEL about it, the author of this paper took liberties in suggesting a cause-and-effect relationship between high gun ownership and freedoms when applying his theory to the present day. This may have been true to a certain extent in the past, but not in the present.

And let me make this clear for you as it appears you too are confused as to my position in this matter - I AM NOT AGAINST LEGAL GUN OWNERSHIP; I BELIEVE CYCLISTS THAT CARRY GUNS WHILE OUT RIDING THEIR BIKES ARE PARANOID AND INSECURE GUN FANATICS. I hope that is clear enough for you. I don't have the time or energy to argue gun rights with you or anyone else...
