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

Don't exaggerate, bro. Texas is not the only state that allows the right to bear arms. Every state does, with some variations. 40 states have the right to bear arms in their state constitutions.

That's in addition to the Federal constitution's guarantee. 

California has restricted magazine size, but that's far from saying they have banned guns.

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.

While that's true, it doesn't matter that much. Generally, you don't have the right to pop off your gun at your pleasure in suburban areas, but in such areas, you don't have a lot large enough to do target shooting. The main thing you care about in such areas is simply keeping a gun somewhere in the house to defend against an armed invader. And defending yourself in such a situation is generally legal.

What I'm saying is target shooting or pleasure shooting is illegal in the suburbs, but you couldn't do it anyway even if it were legal, so what does it matter?

If you want to shoot for fun, you either go to a target range for the day, or you buy a farm/ranch outside the suburban area. And that's fine, I think. 

What's your opinion?

Yes. But that has never extended to government buildings. What planet is this guy on?

ehh not sure if that was directed at me or the gentlemen in the OP. I was referring to the US as a whole, I'm well aware it doesn't apply to government buildings.

Quote from Ron Paul:

"

 

Gun-free zones don't make any difference

Gun-control advocates tell us that removing guns from society makes us safer. But that is simply an impossibility. The fact is that firearm technology exists. It cannot be uninvented. As long as there is metalworking and welding capability, it matters no what gun laws are imposed upon law-abiding people. Those who wish to have guns, and disregard the law, will have guns. Paradoxically, gun control clears a path for violence and makes aggression more likely, whether the aggressor is a terrorist or a government. I don't really believe "gun-free" zones make any difference. If they did, why would the worst shootings consistently happen in gun-free zones such as schools? And while accidents do happen, aggressive, terroristic shootings like this are unheard of at gun and knife shows, the antithesis of a gun-free zone. It bears repeating that an armed society truly is a polite society. Even if you don't like guns and don't want to own them, you benefit from those who do."

There should be no restrictions on gun rights.

You mad fam? what u on?

We have COUNTLESS katha's over here and nothing has happened.

Anyways I don't wanna start up a fight over countries. Sikhi is everywhere.

 

No, bro, I'm not mad. Tell me this: Was or was not the Sikh Channel brought up on charges when it had a discussion about 1984?

I'm not talking about COUNTLESS kathas on pedestrian topics like not cheating or stealing. I said katha about specific sections of Bani. Since I mentioned the word Islamophobic, you should be able to guess the sections I"m talking about.

Your whole quote is at once 1) something I agree with, and 2) not to do with what I asked.

What I asked is your opinion of the banning of pleasure shooting in suburban areas.

No, bro, I believe you are on this very planet that I am also standing on. The Twitter guy is who I'm asking where he's coming from. Why is he being all faux-outraged that he can't take a kirpan into the embassy to get a visa to come to the US?

He does realize that after he gets the visa, he'd have to take his kirpan off to get on the plane to come to the US, does he not?

Again, I'm not saying we should take our kirpans off. Hats off to those Singhs who do not. But none of this false outrage, please.

If they aren't shooting people, I'd go with letting people train. But where I don't agree with is banning guns. The rights of our, (American), constitution allow people to own guns in the 2nd Amendment.

But how do you do this in a suburb where your house is 10ft from your neighbor's?

How do you train? If you set up a target in your back yard, if you happen to miss, (or even if you hit the target), the bullet is going right through your fence to your neighbor's house, or maybe your neighbor's body.

1. Go to a target range (which are, of course, located in rural areas) to have fun shooting.

2. Go hunting (of course, in a rural area, there's no wildlife in suburbs or cities)

3. Buy a farm/ranch.

Otherwise, keep a weapon of some sort for home defense.

bhforce jio_/\_,

What about the GOOD LAW IN UK THAT RESPECTS SIKHS' RELIGIOUS RIGHTS MORE, BY ALLOWING KIRPAN ji?  

The UK law on no freedom of speech, hatred spreading...is what PROTECTS SIKHS vs the number killed in usa since 911.

There are MANY GURMUKHS IN UK AND CANADA, vs USA, due to UK and Canada religious freedom and honor, vs USA pressure to live as majority...thus, i assume usa sikhs put bhagti on lowest of to do in their lives, that my local Gurduara gyani works outside Gurduara, kirpan not visible on him, even on Gurduara Sunday, and family, mostly, do not attend Gurduara?_/\_

also bhforce ji,

usa is pro gun ownership, pro freedom of speech, pro immoral living...but anti kirpan(symbol of righteous living reminder), think about it...if you think you are really free in this free jesu is rab, thus sikh governor in south carolina denounce Sikhi for jesu spouse, because gorey pressured her publicly to declare jesu her rab?  And i am constantly being monitored being only dastaar Sikh female, trying my best to keep up with kanio tiki _/\_

We don't have liberty to wear kirpans outside. We can't wear it to theme parks such as Disney land, six flags and neither we can wear in sourthouses etc. US Embassy in Delhi India also does not allow kirpans. We Sikhs without our country has many restrictions to freely enjoy our religious freedom.

    • A friendly tip veer ji.....when you go to Cali....DO NOT call black people negroes unless you're trying to collect disability or life insurance.  Edit: I keep trying to find the right words for this veer ji and it keeps winding up long and rude... Short form is. Dude. You need to focus on you, your behavior is not cool. Put down your poorly constructed politics and pick up Gurbani and Sewa. Driving a prius is not Sewa. Fake news is not Sewa.  If you're going to respond to a poster please be respectful.  If someone is kind enough to respond to you, be respectful and address their points.  Hang in there ji.  Further edit: If you feel I've been rude to you, or trolling, I apologize. I will do my best to respect your posts. Please be respectful in your posts, and maybe we can all have better dialogue.

      BhForce: I did when I said the below but you are selective in what you choose to see and hear and that decision is usually based on who shares your love /lust with Hindustan:   'What I did, in what I feel was a very humourous and witty way, was highlight how any Sikh that actually enjoys the shafting India has been giving the Sikhs since 1947 needs to question why he enjoys it. Lets look at some of what he enjoys: 1) 1946 - At the Indian National Congress in Calcutta, as the British told the Sikhs their fate was in their hands, Nehru stood up at the Congress and it is on public record that he promised the Sikhs that if they chose to join India Punjab would be given an autonomous state status replicating the Khalsa Raj of Maharaja Ranjit Singh. That means our predicament under India now is entirely based on a lie. We got shafted. It would take a sick minded sikh to actually enjoy this shafting. 2) Never mind  'replica of the Sikh Kingdom' we were promised....India actually went on to cut Punjab into a further 3 pieces. We got shafted. 3) Massacred in the 60's. Massacred in the 70's. Genocide in the 80's and 90's. We've been shafted. What kind of person enjoys this kind of shafting ? 4) Killing off our mother tongue.  Supressing our free speech. Shielding the people that massaced us. We're being shafted. 5) Like the negroes in America, official Indian government statistics show that Sikhs are 3 times more likely to be arrested than a Hindu. Once arrested, Sikhs are 3 times more likely to be charged than a Hindu. Once charged, Indian govt stats show that a Sikh is 3 times more likely to be convicted than a Hindu. Once convicted, a Sikh is 7 times more likely to be hung than a Hindu. And so, they (the pharisees) summoned the man and said unto him "speak up....for we know BhForce is a Gursikh"   "Whether or not he is a Gursikh I do not know: the man replied" "All I know is this:  for a man that is continuously being shafted to turn around and tell his shafter he still loves her / him........this man is surely morally bent if not physically"
        You've spent a whole year stalking me from thread to thread calling me the most disgusting of names and never once.....the list of profanities you have called me must run into the thousands. That in itself is not surprising because the Hinduvta Indian nationalists like yourself specialise in that kind of behaviour these days. We see it often at demonstrations outside the Indian High Commission and we see most often on the internet where the mere sight of Sikhs professing the desire to break free from Indian brutality unleashes animal level hatred and rage amongst the Indian fascists.  What's surprising in a funny way however, is how BhForce and his selective sight hasn't seen any of it over the course of the last year.  But....as always....I fully understand your mental / emotional issues and rather than lower myself to your level of obscenities I understand your weakness and give you links. The stats are from the Indian National Crime Records Bureau and the link below is from the Hindustan Times who tried their best to paint it in the best light as possible but even they couldn't hide the painfull truth: https://www.hindustantimes.com/india/hindus-least-likely-to-be-jailed-sikhs-christians-most-likely/story-Og4PhnhYsPlVLJglKyeOKL.html  Aah...the 'power of suggestion'.  Plant a thought in people's head, say it often enough and they will begin to believe it.  Let me ask you something ?  Do you think the Sikhs are stupid ?  When you Hinduvta India lovers come here on a Sikh forum to try and spread hate and vindictiveness do you think the Sikhs are so stupid that they cannot see what you are doing ?   Do you think the people don't know that I have been chased by a pack of rabid hate filled Indian nationalists for a whole year constantly calling me vile names and each time I've just ignored and carried on with what I like to do, i.e talk about history, philosophy and sociology etc ?   You see that's the main difference between a Singh of Sri Guru Gobind Singh ji and the small frightened mice that represent Hinduvta. You fascists hunt in groups like rabid dogs and even after a year of throwing vile insults at me I still stand strong, brush off the attacks from the dogs and stay true to my words. 
        Of all the profanities and insults you Hinduvta Indian nationalists have thrown at me over the course of the past year I have got to say that was probably the lamest. Surely you can do better than that ?
        I have to say BhForce...and I don't mean to be nasty with this....but you do come across as extremely camp and delicate. So...of the 2,000 or so disgusting and vile insults the Indian fascists have been throwing at me over the course of the last year you're saying you missed every one of them ?    Yikes !!  A visit to specsavers for you my friend.  Now.....I know that I've given valuable insights into our history, our philosophy, our demographics etc etc but, hand on my heart, I'm struggling to find a single interesting thing you have ever said Bhforce. I mean I only remember your name because for so long I thought you were named after british home stores but beyond that there's really nothing at all. Sorry. Yes it does, but you're just not bright enough to understand it. What my sentences said was exactly the same thing that the other EU member states are saying....i.e. that it is delusional to think you can enjoy the benefits of a club whilst not being a member of the club. That's why I used the cake shop analogy. It's not rocket science my friend.
        Are you 4 years old BhForce ?    I really don't think we'll find another person above the age of 4 in this country that Brexit and self-determination go together in the same sentence.     Anyway....it seems the Mod was playing a big joke on us all when he said 'no more moderation' on my thread here, which is a real shame because I had great plans to dig up some of my old philosophy blog articles and post them before I go in a few weeks because in recent weeks was working towards tying up the various themes I introduced into a more substantive Stoic piece.  Never know though....might get time....fingers crossed.
