Sorry. all i know wbout the U.S. formation was that you became a country on August 12, 1777.




yeah......but according to http://www.law.emory.edu/cms/site/index.php?id=3080

the constitution wasnt adopted until 1787, finished ratifying in 1788.

heck our Indepence Day, July 4.....there was maybe 2 signatures on the bloody thing.......-shrug-

And then again, there's not much honor in attempted murder in the first place. I want to have the right to defend myself in an effective manner!

So are you saying that there is no honor in shooting a rapist murderer? Is there no honor in disabling someone trying to kill you? What did you have in mind instead, dying? :wink:

No, but there is plenty of honour in ripping a rapist to shreds with a katana...Mr. Ninja-Pirate.

That's what I do. But hypothetically speaking, let's say you didn't own a katana. Let's say the victim-to-be is just an ordinary human being. Shouldn't they have the right to protect themselves with a simple handgun?

Why not? They've made it so much easier for people to kill each other.

But seriously, folks, they have been invented. And nothing's gonna make that go away, save a nuclear holocaust, maybe.

Stop being so unrealistic. You can't teach the entire world how to defend itself with a Swiss Army Knife when the rapist killers have guns.
