People, it is time to talk about guns.
My entire adult life has been dedicated to the deliberate management of violence. There are no two ways around that fact. My job, at the end of the day, is about killing. I orchestrate violence.
I am not proud of that fact. Indeed, I am often torn-up by the realization that not only is this my job, but that I am really good at my job. But my profession is about directed violence on behalf of the nation. What is happening inside our country is random and disgusting, and living here in England I am at a complete loss as to how to explain this at all. In 2011 the number of gun deaths in the United States was 10.3 per 100,000 citizens. In 2010 that statistic in the UK was 0.25. And do not even try to tell me that the British are not as inclined to violence or that their culture is so different from ours that this difference makes sense. I can say nothing when my British officers ask me about these things, because it is the law.
And for that, frankly speaking, I am embarrassed by our Supreme Court.

From the article:
1. The only guns permitted will be the following:
a. Smoothbore or Rifled muzzle-loading blackpowder muskets. No 7-11 in history has ever been held up with one of these.
b. Double-barrel breech-loading shotguns. Hunting with these is valid.
c. Bolt-action rifles with a magazine capacity no greater than five rounds. Like I said, hunting is valid. But if you cannot bring down a defenseless deer in under five rounds, then you have no fking reason to be holding a killing tool in the first place.
2. We will pry your gun from your cold, dead, fingers. That is because I am willing to wait until you die, hopefully of natural causes. Guns, except for the three approved categories, cannot be inherited. When you die your weapons must be turned into the local police department, which will then destroy them. (Weapons of historical significance will be de-milled, but may be preserved.)

LOL what a POS. We already have a foreigner in the White Hut. We don't need your whining a**.
Just the sort that will be the willing SS when called to suppress We The People.
Whats the overall violent crime rate in the UK?
BTW, countries track crime much differently. I believe the UK lumps crimes together and in some cases only tracks the crime if its solved.
Also I know a lot of military officers who are very anti-gun. I think its their training.
Yawn. Another self-important, liberal dumbass. Hopefully he’ll see this thread and try to defend himself.
Bring it, bitch. This will be expensive for everybody. Let's dance.
I was an officer too. 35e/35d. Formerly enlisted I would say most aren’t anti gun.
Just another fifth columnist within our military.
Try and disarm the 750,000 deer hunters that entered the woods of Pennsylvania on Monday with high powered rifles . Kiss your azz goodbye!
No talkin’ required. There’ll be a shiny new item under the Christmas tree. I believe it is stainless and has a 20 inch barrel. But I’m just guessin’. LOL!
Big talk, douchebag. You'll be dead long before I am. And the only thing we'll pry from your fingers is your own d_ck.
On second thought ...
I’ve met a bunch here in Tampa. Don’t know about most but too many for my liking.
Heck the guy across the street sprints inside to call the cops everytime a neighbor with a large piece of land shoots. Even though the cops have repeatedly told him its completely legal.
The people of Great Britain are NOT free men. When you can be put in prison for shooting a person who has broken into your house multiple times, you are not free.
Stay in the UK, you POS.
I’m sure more and more are anti-gun as time goes on. It’s the kind of officer they want. The more we wait the weaker we get.
That has not been my 25 year experience in the military, in fact it's quite the opposite. I consider Bateman a smart assed dangerous idiot not worthy of the oath he is sworn to. In the rather vast world LTCs past and present of which I belong, he is of the fringe minority in his sentiment towards what the 2nd Amendment guarantees to the citizenry at large, not some ad hoc edict to arm the National Guard.
This guy is at the very least, a statist jackass and probably a leftist loon to boot.
” Hopefully hell see this thread and try to defend himself.”
If he does try to defend himself, I’ve heard he carries a brick in his purse so watch it.
Go to Hell and Burn.
Devil Worshipin, Satanic Inspired, Kommunist...
Thats encouraging to hear.
That is why we need guns. You.
We, the people... are armed. And that ain't changing.
>> living here in England
This embarrassment to America DOESN’T EVEN LIVE HERE.
Up yours, Bateman.
” and living here in England I am at a complete loss as to how to explain this at all.”
Ach!! Let Dr. Zulu explain.
This is part of your problem. You are suffering from what is known as “European Union Syndrome”. You must have caught it while you were over there in England.
The symptoms involve severe hoplophobia, shrinking tentacles, a softening of the backbone, a lost of the stomach function, a large yellow stripe down the back, and irrational fear of words like “Crusader”, “Christian” and “Western Civilization”. You probably also have an irrational fondness for lying, pandering arrogant politicians named Obama who look like Mussolini with a dark tan.
My suggestion is you stay there. We have too many people suffering from this malady here already and there is no apparent cure except for a sudden loss of medical coverage.
Take two aspirins and call me in the morning if you don’t feel better.
These bastards just won’t give up.
And we WILL get the keys to the armories!
Warfare sucks. It sucks to have soap all over you and dive for cover when the rocket alarm sounds, and you know they aren't going to hit squat (except sometimes).
They don't want to live like that.
They would have to.
The military might of the western world can't stop that crap in Afghanistan. Here would be much, much worse.
Bateman is just pissed because an armed populace has the means to resist the tyrannical socialist government he wants to force down our throats.
They call you Master in England isn’t that right? Well Master Bateman, if American want any crap out of you, we’ll unscrew your head and dip it out. Stay in England and take your Esquire with you!
That’s today’s Army for you!
I can wait you out, Sweet Pea. And I can give my guns to anyone I like who will wait you out, and you can't stop me. And if you are stupid enough to send in the thugs I really will kill them and then I'll come after you. Believe it, Sweet Pea. This isn't going to be one of those "I orchestrate violence" masturbatory fantasies of people who got a CrackerJack-box commission. You're going to have to get down and dirty on this, Sweet Pea, and I'm more than happy to go there.
Just butter up the pontificating and stuff it in your festering gob, guy. We have them and we're going to keep them. If you want them, come and get them.
Good plan. My plan is to pass on my firearms and supplies to one or more young patriots before I go. Your move.
I could tell from his first sentence and paragraph that he’s a douchebag.
This article will go in his file and he will get a gold star, maybe even a citation. He’s still a douchbagge.
Bring it on, lightbird.
Perhaps he needs an express pass
I know these commies are going to put the hammer down on us in the waning months of Obama's _residency. They have to. They are running out of time.
When they go hot, it ain't gonna go good for me, my family, or my FRiends. But we cannot be cowards when the time comes.
This guy to the “feed the hogs list” when the ballon goes up!
I hope we got a few Henry Bowmans left.
He takes Scalia to task for ignoring the National Guard. Yet, he proposes all manner of proposals that ignore “the right of the people to keep and bear Arms, shall not be infringed.”
About what you’d expect from a Constitution-hating, oath-breaking POS LIB.
Hey you commie, gun grabbing, freak. The VAST MAJORITY of gun violence in America is GANG RELATED. Do you hear me NOW? Isolated incidents occur. They always have. They always will. But how bout a strong anti-gang effort? Too racist for you, huh? Yeah, race is the shield for all commie take overs in this country. What about putting mentally ill in institutions where they can be helped and not left to roam the streets homeless? I’m so sick of commies that disguise themselves. Yeah even those in the military. If you walk like a commie and quack like a commie you must be one. The only way you get my gun is when I beat you with it after running out of ammunition.
The evil that now rules in Amerika through devils like Pelosi, Reid, Obama and co., and willing enablers like McCain, Mc Connel, and Graham are more than willing to destroy the Republic and 100s of millions world wide in order to bring about their new world order rule.
I sense a very bloody and violent future for this land. If we do not soon educate our young as to the nature of the democrip’s evil, we will have those same young people reporting the locations of guns held by citizens. It happened in Germany, partially because the parents did not teach their children to discern good and evil. Our children are mostly the products of government designed and fed schooling.
