                                                                                                     HAPPY 4TH OF JULY
The fourth of July is often mistaken to be the end of the Revutionary war but was not. In fact it was more less about the beginning of the war, July 4, 1776. The fourth of July is when the colonies recognized themselves as their own nation and no longer would the King of Great Britain rule over another man on American soil. It wasn't until 1783 that the thirteen colonies with the help of our French allies defeated what was considered the most powerful arny in the world at the time.
Many things separate us from other countries and I think the most important is the amount of freedom that we have. Most countries don't understand our freedom or the rights we have that allows us to keep such freedom. Here we control the government, the government does not control the people. And if our government ever becomes destructive to our freedoms we the people have the right to over throw the government and alter or abolish it completely. Now days we hear alot on television about how this government needs to restore democracy, or how certain protest groups have attacked our democracy........those people who are in favor of democracy in America are wrong because we were never ever suppose to support democracy, it is not democracy that we seek , it is liberty that we Americans have always fought for not democracy. Never in the history of mankind has democracy ever lasted long, and any society that ever tried democracy has fallen to coruption......this is the American Creed that we seek:

        I do not choose to be common, it is my right to be uncommon, I seek opportunity not security. I do not wish to be a kept citizen, humbled and dulled from having the state look after me. I want to take the calculated risk to dream and to build, to fail and succeed, I refuse to barter incentives for dole.
I prefer the challenges of life, to the guaranteed existence, the thrill of fulfillment, to the stale clam of utopia. I will not trade freedom for beneficence, nor my dignity for a handout, I will never cower before any master nor bend to any threat. It is my heritage to stand erect, proud and unafraid, to think and act for myself, to enjoy the benefit of my creation, to face the world boldly and say: This I have done, all of this is what it it means to be American.

We have the freedom and guaranteed right to seek liberty and happiness, to enjoy life without anyone standing in the way even government and the only way we have been able to preserve those rights is because of our second amendmemt....we do not want govt telling us how to live, how to raise our families, telling where and when we may travel, or when and how long we may work, or telling what we can or cannot do with our money. I think many have lost sight of what we stand for because govt and the world around has changed society but we must not allow outside influence destroy the greatest country ever known. I hope it's not too late.

I admire your love for liberty and I adhere to it !
But, if I take my freedom as my goal, I must also take that of others as my goal.
We are condemned to put limits on our freedoms under penalty of harming those of others, for the happiness of all.
We cannot be satisfied with a free fox in a free henhouse ! In our free countrees, it is therefore necessary to adapt the laws in order to help those who suffer as much as possible.
Finally, the individual must above all act with morality by using his reason to guarantee a maximum of freedoms. For this, there are education and mental health to invest…

I dont understand what you mean by, " it is therefor necessary to adapt the laws in order to help those who suffer as much as possible". We have the laws in place now, they have been in place for years, unfortunately the laws are not enforced. So why create more laws that will restrict my rights for wrong doing of a few bad apples? The problem lies within society itself and the morals and ethics that our young people are learning, the problem lies with our government having too much control over our families education, the problem lies within our judicial system and problem lies withing too many groups having influence in the court system......corrupt politicians and outside influence....other countries pushing for a one word order. It is not my freedom that causes pain to others. It is my freedom that keeps this country free. Do you think there has never been evil until recently? This has been happening since the beginning of time, the only difference is now we have internet, news stations, radio, and many other types of communication to spread the news and collect everyones opinions......take away the good peoples rights to have a fire arm and the criminals will still get firearms.....do you think the firearms are obtained legally,? Do you think the cartel goes down to the local gun store and buys a gun legally, registeres them and follows the laws? Take away my freedom so that I cannot protect myself correct? Is that what you seek? You see this is what the news stations do not tell you......did you know that the person who actualy stopped the shooter at Uvalde school was not even an on duty officer? But a man who happened to be carrying a gun legally who heard the troubles and rushed to help! The actualy police didn't want to go in but thanks to this mam who was exercising his freedom happen to be close by. The news does not tell you about the mother who was attacked at a gas station with her child in the car who happen to be exercising her freedom and carrying a gun in her purse and was able to stop the attack and her and her child went home safe....the news does not tell you about the 90 yr old woman asleep in in her home who exercised her freedom by having a shotgun by her door when she heard a noise and got up to see what it was an grabbed her gun as she saw 3 men coming through her door, an yes because a good person had her freedom she was able to stop them and live another day....what history does not tell you is that this government  that you trust so much that your willing to bow down and hand over your freedom is the exact reason for our freedoms and right to own a firearm...this government who's thumb you are willing to live under is the most corrupt evil entity ever known and how do you plan on protecting yourself from your great honorable government? Do you think that the evil things Hitler done will never happen again? Pegoud I wouldn hope you are smarter than that....have you not watched the documentaries of the Jewish people and how they said, " it's just a minor law, let's do as were told and it will all blow over soon"......just because we live in modern times do not ever think it won't happen to you or your children or their children......I will ask you this.....there are 20x the amount of people killed by drunk drivers than there are mass shootings......do you believe we should ban the automobile and take away the freedom to travel? If you say no then do not comment to take away my freedom to protect myself. There are just as many people assaulted with a knife, or a club, or by arson as there are with a firearm....so do we ban knives and attack the knife manufacturer?, do we ban baseball clubs and attack the bat manufacturer and forbid baseball games? There is no difference except for one thing my friend....
the difference is if our guns are taken the government will have all the power to bring tyranny to the people. That pegoud is why our 2nd amendment is under attack. Do you beleive that when these tragedies get broadcasted across the world that you hear the truth.? You don't. You have ever experienced the freedom I have, I know this for a fact and until you do you will never understand and you will never see it the way we see it. Even in my country I have lived a life of freedom that most Americans could only dream of and I am fortunate and I celebrate the fourth of July because had it not been for those men who believed in thier ideas I may have had to grow up like you, not understanding what liberty truly means. Do not find it a coincidence that these shootings only happen when the democratic party is in office? Did you not see that? Its true, while Donald Trump was in office not one mass shooting. Three weeks I to the Biden administration and we start having mass shooting and their main focus is taking away our guns....does that not throw a red flag, or maybe the fact that the American government is very corrupt doesn't concern you, however taking my freedom does...?  I like the debate pegoud but until you have the facts and until you have lived as an American you will never understand....French affairs do not concern me what your country does is you guys business's and if your people are happy with restricted freedoms then that is your choice, that is a choice the French people have made,....I am not French and this is not French soil nor will it ever be. You should come here sometime pegoud, you are welcome at my place anytime and I could show you a life you probably never knew existed.....

Pegoud my friend, I would like to give an example to think about......the war on drugs. More people have died from substance abuse or just narcotics in general whether it be using, selling, making, smuggling however you want to look at it....than mass shootings, drunk drivers, assaults and attacks all combined ok........So drugs became illegal and the war on drugs has been going on for decades and drug use today is just as much a problem if not more of a problem than it wad 40 yr ago.......drugs are illegal and the government spends trillions of dollars each year trying to stop it. But the bad guys still get the product...if they cannot stop drugs from entering our streets, what makes you think that passing a law to bann guns will stop mass shootings? Give me a reasonable answer that makes sense and I will restrict or limit my freedom as you say!

Hi my dear friend DEEZ_NUTS !
You have many arguments for not restricting the free sale of arms…
I know the history of your nation and I understand this need to be armed in USA !
Fortunately, we do not have this history in Europe… Even if today, we are victims here of an illegal traffic in weapons of war coming from the Balkans and used to settle accounts between gangs of drug traffickers. I respect the right to own a gun. This right has been acquired in France since the revolution of 1789 ! I myself have a hunting rifle inherited from my grandfather, declared legally. I’ve never use it but I keep it preciously as an asset of old struggles… And who knows ? Maybe one day, I will have to use it to feed myself or to defend myself… Lately are so incertains…
But weapons of war ? Assault rifles ? Isn’t that a bit too much ?
The examples you cite didn’t have assault rifles to neutralize these people who lost their minds ! Who walks around with an assault rifle to protect themselves or others ? No need !
On the other hand, these rifles make innocent victims who deserve that the state protects them…
Thank you for this discussion, dear friend !
See you soon in the sky of DFE !

Hellooooo Outlaw and my friends at the Jagar squadron.
.
..I am sorry for jumping in on the debate, but its one that is very important to try to understand and resolve as a nation.  There is a lot to unpack after I read your point of view in the freedom, the second amendment and government / politics.  First out of the bat I hate politicians it is very hard to trust or believe in people that sell their moral values and the trust of the people they represent to the money that big corporations throw their way.  I speak as a US citizen that lives in the oldest colony in the world, which has no right to vote for the president or congress that rules over our island.  Talk the talk of democracy and freedom but don’t walk the walk when it comes to acknowledging that having still a colony under US domain is a bit of contradictory or hypocritical. Maybe we should dump some tea in the bay…. but the thing is that most of the citizens of the island favor statehood, but congress does nothing to resolve the problem. 
.
..That perspective of seeing that The United States of America has the oldest colony in the world still under its control, takes me to the freedom thing that the forefathers wanted to give to all its US citizens, equality for all…they said.  Well to the African American it was not granted, so freedom was and still is not equal for everyone as intended, because it was not executed in an equal manner by our forefathers. The constitution is the law of the land, but out of the bat it was not granted to everyone.  This shows that those forefathers that some see as all wise and God like, were just men with their own interest and agendas. They did try to do the best they could as all politicians say they do. But we have what we have, and we believe it was written in good faith although it was not executed as such. But nothing is perfect. Land was stolen, lives were lost, abuses, slavery, violence, racism were all part of what forge this nation.  Great thigs and great Americans have made it shine but like every country it has it dark stories; and with time the problems and challenges continue to evolve.
.
.
 You are right in your statement Outlaw that the colonies were establish in the base of freedom. Without one man ruling the nation. But soon they found out that it was not working for them, and those God-like forefathers decided to sit down and write a constitution or laws of the land and also appoint a ruler of the nation.   So that freedom that the colonies were seeking at first went through a bit of a filter and it became the constitution. Great piece of paper done with the best of intentions to give the best freedom possible to all of us and to try to unify the laws…. but as I have stated before, that was not the case for everyone.
.
.
   Many countries have similar level of freedom and sadly many do not.  Democracy helps to ensure and give the power to the people to elect its government.  When dictators, kings and monarchs rule the land you have no horizon as to expect a change for your country.  Only way is to overthrow the government and some one will rise to power….and that someone that overthrows a government by force…will he step down and bring democracy or elections to the people when he did not respect it? History of many countries can answer that question. Democracy and its freedom were established by our forefathers when they wrote the constitution. To have each colony dictate their own freedom became a challenge and that experiment did not work.  The constitution and democracy were born to ensure freedom and the union of the nation.   Not what they had in mind at first, but it was them who went that rout, trusting that the president and congress would have the best interest of the people.
.
.The constitution was written in a different era or times, we have seen it is not perfect and that they did a poor job on making it valid to all its citizens.  Many of the laws in it are good and like I stated I believe were writing in good faith. The second amendment is quite unique, and I understand the thinking behind it, and I respect it. But I am sure that when it was included in the constitution it was not in their minds that we should own a machine gun, grenades, or bazookas. One could think they envision the use of weapons for hunting and protection. But do we need a machine gun to hunt animals or to protect or home? I personally believe its overdoing it and opening the door to the misuse of this types of weapons.
.
.. I believe in the right to have arms, but I see there is no control in the way those arms are distributed or sold. There should be a mental, and criminal evaluation done to gun owners before they get a gun and after they have it. This to try and ensure and minimize the risk of having a person with mental problems or issues owning or buying a weapon. Here in the island, we are covered by the second amendment, but it was established that to get a weapon you should present evidence of your mental state and the police conducts and investigation with your neighbors, family, and record before they grant you a license to own weapon. This process takes time, and it may discourage a person with bad intentions to commit a crime. It is not a solution that will stop crime or mass shootings, but it helps to bring them down. Can’t believe that if the NRA is such a prestigious institution would be opposed to know if the people there are selling their weapons are fit now and, in the future, to own a firearm.  Or is just another company or organization like the tabaco industry that says…its their problem if they smoke and die, not mine.
.
. I get from were Pegoud is coming from when he engages in this topic, because like me he is a teacher, and the gun violence has come into our classrooms and it’s not fair that my innocent children must die by the bullets of a crazy person. Its not the gun that kills, it’s the crazy person…. nop it’s the gun that kills the crazy person is the one using the gun, if he had no gun, he would just be crazy. 
.
..I don’t advocate for taking guns aways from responsible users or eliminate the second amendment I believe guns should not be giving to people who are not fit to have them and that machine guns should not be out there for the public. Guns don’t come to the US and to our island from some third world country…they are put out there on sale by the criminals. How they get them? stolen from legit buyers and then they erase the serial numbers so they can sell them in the black market.  Can a nut buy a gun in the back market…sure he can but its not as easy as to enter a Walmart and buying it from a clerk? I’m sure that the monster that kill all those children in Texas would have not been able to get it in the black market. There should be better regulation on who get to own a gun to try and minimize the threats. Not perfect but what we got now is not protecting our children.
.
.  You are right Outlaw in saying that mass shootings in schools and other places have been going on for decades. Did a bit of research on it and the earliest known United States shooting to happen on school property was the Pontiac's Rebellion school massacre on July 26, 1764, where four Lenape Native American entered the schoolhouse near present-day Greencastle, Pennsylvania, shot and killed schoolmaster Enoch Brown, and killed nine or ten children (reports vary). Only two children survived.
.
.After that year you can read the countless shootings that occurred in school settings in every decade. They are all very detailed and sad to read. I did read them all and they are a lot but once you read them you see a pattern in the type of weapon and deaths. Most of them were done by had guns with limited bullets and the casualties were less. Most shootings were directed at teachers or employees and yes, the more painful were done to children. Also, many of the incidents were done buy minors that brought a hand weapon from their parents to school. Few incidents stand out more than others and it is in the last years that we have seen the increase of casualties in children at school with the use of machine guns.  A pistol can kill so many a machine gun can cause more death. 
.
.I have been asked by my uncle many times to move to the states to teach, he tells me the pay is better and school facilities and teaching materials are amazing.  But honestly, I am afraid of teaching in the mainland states….and I live in an island where the crime rate is extremely high, but here crime is related to drugs and organize crime we never seen a mental person go inside our schools and start killing innocent children.  Yes, we live in a different world where I have to teach our children to hide under the chairs because there is shooting outside, but I do not want to experience the anguish of running to protect my kids with my body because some nut came inside my class room with a machine gun to kill them all, that I could not bear because I know I will not be able to protect them against such a horror.  Pegoud I understand your worries, frustration, and impotence against what our children are suffering. No one is stepping up and talking about solutions to try and minimize this epidemic.  We can’t normalize the killing of innocent children by comparing it with car accidents, or other types of death; those are accidents…killing children and innocent people is no accident it is murder.
.
.Did a bit of research on the Trump no mass shooting during his term…because you know what? I was not sure…I said yes there were but since it has become such a normal occurrence; like you Outlaw, I thought maybe there were non. But my first instinct was right and the deadliest mass shooting in modern U.S. history took place during the Trump era. In October 2017, a gunman shot and killed nearly 60 people at a music festival in Las Vegas. While not an exhaustive list of every mass shooting that took place during the Trump administration, here are some of the deadliest incidents while Trump was in office:
.
. In November 2017, 26 people were killed at a church in Sutherland Springs, Texas.
.In February 2018, 17 people were killed at a high school in Parkland, Florida.
.In May 2018, 10 people were killed at a high school in Santa Fe, Texas.
.In October 2018, 11 people were killed at a synagogue in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.
.In November 2018, 12 people were killed at a restaurant in Thousand Oaks, California.
.In May 2019, 12 people were shot and killed at an office building in Virginia Beach, Virginia.
.In August 2019, 22 people were killed at a Walmart in El Paso, Texas.
.
.Trump, of course, was not the first president to see a mass shooting take place during his time in office. The Sandy Hook Elementary School shooting in Newton, Connecticut (27 victims), the Pulse Nightclub shooting in Orlando, Florida (49 victims), and the movie theater shooting in Aurora, Colorado (12 victims) all took place during former Democratic President Barack Obama’s term.
.
.This is a problem, and we just cannot keep ignoring it and learning to live with it, something is clearly wrong, and we all know it. Mental issues and guns do not mix, they are a deadly combo, what would you say if your neighbor from years suddenly becomes depressed and un-rational and you just do not know it or don’t care we each live in our own little caves. But without explanation he takes his machine gun and aim it out his window to your back yard were you and your children are celebrating a party and he just starts shooting at all of you. Your son is shoot in the face you rush to him and turn him around and he has no face instead a big hole and the beautiful smiling face of your child is gone and, in your memory, will live forever the blood and the hole made in his face by a machine gun.  Part of your family gets killed in the same graphic and bloody manner and some survive. You must bury your son with the coffin closed because he has no more smile, no more expression because his face was torn apart by this monster that you thought was an ok normal person. What would you do? Will you see things different from now own?  It is not easy to be on the other end of the gun. Not fair to let innocent die when things can be prevented.

. There is no will too do anything. When I heard those children from kinder garden were shoot and killed and our politicians did nothing, that is when I knew that all the other shootings that would follow would be just the same. Its just a thing that we must learn to live with, it is normal.  It is not normal…and it is sad that the greatest country in the world can’t get together and find a solution. We are so great at helping and protecting other countries but not so much at protecting our citizens, what a shame…Maybe our forefathers might have the will to take on the problem and seek a solution for the good of the country. But hey they are in the past now this is our problem now and we must show the will to tackle this horrible problem and make a change.

No it is not too much to own an assault rifle if the laws we have in place would be enforced. The 2nd amendment is not to ensure or guarantee the right to own just a gun, not the right to target practice or even the right to hunt....it is the guaranteed right to protect ourselves from a corrupt government or military force both foreign and domestic. Now I don't know about you but if the government was to ever use the military on its own people I would hate to defend myself with my grampas hunting rifle. It would be no match. I agree, not everyone should have access to them and I don't think they should be carried freely but I am not against each household owning one if they can pass a mental examination, criminal background and even an evaluation of family members living in the house that can obtain access to them. But the problem lies within our society more than anything.....kids are not taught anymore about how to handle a fire arm, how to respect them or the safety of them.......when I was 7 yrs old I owned my first gun for hunting, worked and saved my money and bought it myself at the local Kmart, now I own many, maybe 40 two of which are assault rifles legaly owned...and growing up all my friends had guns, we had classes in high school that taught us about guns...I use to carry a gun in the back window of my truck and as I pulled onto the school campus no one ever said a word, i was pulled over as a minor and the cops never said anything, they would check to make sure it wasn't loaded and let me be on my way.....So what has happened in our society to cause such irresponsible young adults? Is it the way they are taught now, is it the ideology that teachers feed them? I don't know but I know there is too much government in our everyday lives and it was never suppose to be this way. Government is in every aspect of our lives and the bigger government gets the worst it gets....the problem will not be solved by restricting the freedoms of good people.....it won't be solved by prohibiting gun manufacturers because anyone can make a gun......give me a lathe and I can make one, my friends all know how to make them....it won't solve the problem to prohibit the sales because there is a black market that is just as big as gun shop owners.....so where do we start? Maybe teachers should be more observant with their students and care enough to report a problem when they see it or become aware of it. 95% of the mass shooting suspects made themselves known before it happened and nobody did anything about it. Their friends saw the problem, their teachers saw the problem and some even their parents saw the problem and nobody did anything but instead of going to whee the problem is everyone wants to attack our freedom, they want to attack the manufacture, they want to attack the gun shop owner....why? The gun did not shoot itself, the person behind the gun did the shooting so maybe that is where we need to start.......our society today is shameful in many ways...everyone wants change history, everyone's feeling are hurt over petty things, or they are offended, they don't want to work, they strive for the govt handout, nobody is held accountable, and society judges its people by their wealth by their religion by their political beliefs, by their looks, by their weight and if you don't get accepted in one of these groups society makes life hard on those individuals...our courts system is wrong, our judicial system is weak in the wrong areas and over powering. But who is going to point the finger at the govt? Who is going to blame our institutions we all know they would never accept responsibility because they always portray themselves as the problem solvers not the problem.....i will agree to disagree because this is an issue far beyond our reach and fortuntey I will not have to be here to see this great country of freedom fall to hands of big govt. and the corrupt politicians that are ruining it.....

Yes they are loggerhead your right.....there are so many restrictions now that it is already infringing on our 2nd amendment and its not good. What is sad is that the main stream media does not broadcast the good. MSM is in the pocket of big govt and will only broadcast the bad and tell the story so that the whole world is against the USA's greatest right! The one right that is our guarantee to always be free, not just now but forever....should think about that for a minute. I do not want to rely on the police to protect my family, thats my job! I dont want to rely on govt to tell me how to raise my family, im a grown ass man and thats my job! I dont want the school system telling my kids that everything i teach them at home is wrong! That is not the teachers job. I am a gun owner and my kids will be gun owners and their kids will have the Freedom this great country has to offer and they will own it with no shame...

Me too nuts if i would have known you would get all the backlash it would have been better to not say anything at all. Its crazy that this is how society works now. Those who expose the wrong are looked at as the problem and those who have been exposed dont get told anything. Im the one who created the first post hoping the devloper could shine some light on the issue and he is more worrried about multiple post than players ruining the game cheating....
