Original Starting post for this thread:
The United States has 90 guns for every 100 citizens, making it the most heavily armed society in the world, a report released on Tuesday said.

U.S. citizens own 270 million of the world's 875 million known firearms, according to the Small Arms Survey 2007 by the Geneva-based Graduate Institute of International Studies.

About 4.5 million of the 8 million new guns manufactured worldwide each year are purchased in the United States, it said.

"There is roughly one firearm for every seven people worldwide. Without the United States, though, this drops to about one firearm per 10 people," it said.

India had the world's second-largest civilian gun arsenal, with an estimated 46 million firearms outside law enforcement and the military, though this represented just four guns per 100 people there. China, ranked third with 40 million privately held guns, had 3 firearms per 100 people.

Has anybody ever tried to calculate the number of times taxes are paid just to put, say, copper wire in your house or car? It's easily in the hundreds of times. And the final buyer picks up the tab for all of the total. Clue: Nitro Glycerin was used to dynamite the copper mine wall. That's made with Glycerin and sulphuric and Nitric acids. Nitric Acid is made from nitrating ammonia. Ammonia is made from Natural Gas and Nitrogen. The Nitrogen is free. See how many other products or semi products go into the process, and remember we have to transport them, advertise them, store them, pay enough to the people who make them to pay taxes, etc., and etc. ad finitum. At each step, taxes are paid. The ultimate cost of that copper wire is probably 50% taxes paid to city, country, state, and Federal Governments. Now Bernie wants us to pay more so he can distribute it for votes. What a great system we have.

Governor Terry McAuliffe of Virginia

Because of the impending election though, it's all most people talk about. This Jack Ass granted them a FULL PARDON, giving them the legal right to keep and bear arms. Funny when you consider the Liberal stance on gun control. They don't want law abiding citizens to have them, but suddenly it's okay for violent criminals to have them because they've paid their debt to society.

Justus:

Do you pay taxes?

Do you obey the traffic signals?

Don't give me your rhetoric about how you aren't bound to the US legal system. If the laws change, you have three choices. A) Obey and try to change the laws from within the system, B) disobey and risk prison, or C) remove yourself from the national equation.
