Live in the UK so a bit unwise to American culture but don't you guys have the right to bear arms?

I think it's a publicity stunt by Jaspreet Singh No Caste Singh. It is general knowledge that Kirpan isn't allowed in Embassies & on Airplanes.

More reasons for Khalistan.

At this point, only Texas does, Cali (where I'm from) lost it with the rise of liberal ideas

Oh, man, is this guy for real? Since when have you been able to enter embassies armed?

Somebody on his Twitter said, Trump isn't letting Sikhs enter "his" buildings with Kirpan. What delusional nonsense. No one has ever been allowed to go in armed into US embassies, has nothing to do with the current President.

Of course, I am not saying that Sikhs should take kirpans off willy-nilly, but the law's the law.

Seriously? The US is a jalanda jagat (burning world)? And the UK, which has 53% atheists according to the latest survey, compared to 3.1% in the US, is just a wonderful paradise?

There's a disparity between Rural America, SubUrban America, and Urban America, which could as different to each other as separate countries.

Rural America: almost everyone has a gun, regardless of race or ethnicity.

SubUrban America: Worst place for gun-rights, especially if you live near a major city.

Urban America: Very heavily based on keeping it a secret.

Also this could be broken-up even further, with different states and regions with localities, (except Texas).

Erm, wutt? Freedom in the UK, what're you talking about bro?

The US has freedom of speech enshrined in its Constitution.

In the UK, if you were to be doing katha of certain parts of Guru Granth Sahib or Dasam Granth Sahib, you could hauled up on charges of Islamophic incitement of hatred:

Quote

Expressions of hatred toward someone on account of that person's colour, race, disability, nationality (including citizenship), ethnic or national origin, religion, or sexual orientation is forbidden.[1][2][3] Any communication which is threatening or abusive, and is intended to harass, alarm, or distress someone is forbidden.[

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Hate_speech_laws_in_the_United_Kingdom

Now, I don't advocate stirring up hatred, but you are free to do so in the US. Not so in the UK. You can call it good or bad, but please don't say "we don't have freedom in the US compared to the UK".

UK, the country that has banned hunting, is free? Compared to the US, where hunting is a popular pastime?

UK, the country where (effectively) you cannot bear arms, is free? Compared to the country (US) where the right to bear arms is enshrined right there in the Constitution?

Respectfully, no it is not, bro. Generally, in such areas it is illegal to discharge a weapon. 

But that means, shooting for the sake of it, like target practice or whatever. It is not illegal to defend yourself in your home against an invader.

As for cities, it is difficult to keep guns legally in Chicago, NYC, and Washington, DC. Other than that, it's generally OK.

If you compare gun-rights to the Rural Midwest and the Rural South, to the Suburban regions, there's a huge disparity between gun rights.

    • Heretic or a Turk. Both are repulsive. The heretic is an internal threat where as the Turk is external. Whether or not he's insulted the Gurus (as of yet), is not the issue. It's the fact that he's Turk-Beeraj.
    • I do not believe in an absolute morality, dharam is not the same for each and every individual. This is not to say that dharam does not exist, only that it doesn't exist in a monolithic form.  This concept is reflected very well in the life of the Mahapurakh Sant Baba Thakur Singh, 14th jathedar of Damdami Taksaal. Babaji was a strict vegetarian like all members of Taksaal, so for him eating meat was a great sin. However when he visited the chaunis (encampments) of Nihang Singhs around Chowk Mehta he would often bring offerings of goats to be jhatkaa'd by the nihangs and later consumed. Because eating meat was not a great paap for them as it was for babaji, rather it was their tradition and he respected that the role they were given by the Almighty was different from his own.  Satguru's Hukam affects each person differently.  Eastern dharams tend not to impose moral codes on the whole of humankind, as though such codes apply to everybody. Yes there are certain basic guiding principles of human morality - don't murder, don't rape, but most sane people don't really need to be told not to do these things by a religion because they feel an inherent revulsion towards them. However beyond this things can get quite flexible. Some people are meant to be householders and provide for a family, whilst others are meant to be celibates and devote their lives and all their energy to Akaal Purakh and Seva of the Panth. If God creates someone with the intention that they will become a warrior, battle becomes dharam for this person, a righteous deed. If however God creates a man and by his hukam determines that this man is to be peaceful saint, battle is adharam for him, not righteous. This is why different sampardas/jathebandiaan exist in Sikhi. Guru Ji is not/was not anti-samparda or anti-jathebandi, if they were, they wouldn't have created or blessed so many of them themselves. I don't know if what I'm saying is right, but this is the conclusion I have arrived at from my study of Sikhi. Others will have arrived at different conclusions, and good thing too -  Sikhi is a garden full of many diverse flowers.  I do not believe Guru Ji aspired to make all Sikhs, or all people,  identical in their religious outlook and practice. 
    • So you think that Sikhs and Muslims need to remain bitter enemies for as long as this world exists?   And because of 84 do we also need to become eternal enemies of the Hindus forever and ever?   Yesterday Hindus were our friends but they ended up knifing us in the back. And Yesterday's enemies can become strategic allies of today. Try to see the bigger picture.
    • This one statement just proves you should know before commenting on such complex topics.
