    This is fantastically articulate. Incredibly condescending, but articulate. It contains its own share of rhetorical hot air and definitively proves your theory about dicks.

    I thought that political threads were supposedly 'not allowed' from this forum.
    We've had some nasty shit happen in other blatant political threads what's different in this one?

    But since it's now OK I'd like to add something that intrigues me about this topic whenever it pops up here.

    I find my flabber is absolutely gasted by the fact that figure modellers who predominately model armed military figures which portray every known way to kill a person with every kind of instrument of slaughter in every pose of hacking, impaling and shooting can find the topic of guns and violence alarming. Most figure modelling portrays armed violence or armed people of some kind.
    The hobby of traditional figure modelling seems to vindicate or advocate ( can't find the right word) the use of weapons.
    I've honestly never been able to 'figure' that one out.

    Cheers.........be nice and don't slaughter anyone...:)

    Very well said! It has been a mystery to me as well. It usually degenerates into America bashing which is why it is allowed here. It is considered clever and intelligent. LOL.

    Oh well.

    LOL. OK, this is what I meant, my first point in red...our Founders knew exactly what was in the Amendment and why, they saw places like Scotland and Ireland subjugated and decided that would not happen to us. Difference between Citizens and subjects. The second point in red illustrates your ignorance on the subject....you cannot buy automatic weapons and cannons "over the counter" here. (Or on the internet without background checks) LOL. So continue to gain your knowledge and straw man arguments from Jim Carey. But at least get your facts straight. We will never change each others minds on this. In your world weapons are only the right of the Royals and the rich, not in ours. This has been fun and the video has caused my disarming. Let us paint and bash America! It is sport for you fellows here. I would be more concerned over not having a Navy or Air Force than guns in America, but whatever.

    Well here we are, the usual nationalistic paranoia.
    As far as I can see nobody has bashed America, merely commented on the clear and indisputable problem of virtually open access to guns in America. This is fine if it's a nation of balanced people but like every other country it has its share of nut jobs who unlike those in most other countries can legitimately be armed.
    Mark as to your point what we model is a place and time in military history and it is not the actions of soldiers being discussed here but rather the actions of demented individuals who have the opportunity to access weaponry way way beyond that deemed necessary for self protection.
    Paul your contribution was articulate and well balanced but when someone chooses to be part of the problem rather than the solution what do you expect.
    I can't see anywhere in this thread where anyone has said that Americans shouldn't have their guns but simply that it would be sensible to have better controls and then perhaps .... just perhaps fewer innocents would be arbitrarily shot ....... the right to bear bigger and bigger guns!!!!! ......... maybe it's a compensatory thing.
    As for citizens and subjects ........ what century do some people think we live in over here ????????? subjects FFS!!!!!!:ROFLMAO:

    Excellent I think you've just confirmed what a lot of people think.......if that's the level of your response it simply adds weight to my points.
    Also I'm neither drunk nor a pensioner.:)

    Well then, you can dish but not take. Lol. And IDGAF what people think anymore. PC is not for me I guess.


  12. DEL A Fixture

    You're the one who chose to personalise it. I felt I was making broad points and at no time disputed Americans constitutional rights. Although the IDGAF attitude is maybe at the root of many of our problems.
  13. sd0324 PlanetFigure Supporter

    Lol, you knew exactly what points you were insinuating. You poked and prodded until you got a response that you were trolling for. PC is not for me.

    Later dude.

    I think I'll just leave this here...

    Seems appropriate

    Seems entirely inappropriate......FFS that has got to be the most disgustingly offensive post I've seen on this site........unbelievable. I'm sure the kid and his family were as proud as anything.
    Probably didn't expect some arsehole to turn his moment in the sun into something as despicable as this........can't imagine why anyone would post this.
    I can think of at least 3 highly respected modellers on this site who have kids with disabilities. These kids are full of value, love and joy. Personally I would like to think the moderators would remove the image.

    Although I see your point I don't think this is a contradiction. Toy soldiers are just that and we don't hear anything about mass swallowings of tiny parts causing occasional mayhem. Figures are not potentially deadly in the same way as guns are.

    Besides, in my expectation those interested in military history are more aware of the risks of arms and armed conflict than the average public and therefore less inclined to actually use or cause them... It's unproven but I think figurereers are a peaceful bunch....although this thread is starting to disprove that last statement... :-/

  19. Mark S Guest

    I totally agree with you Adrian.
    That's why I find it hard to understand such an extraordinary contradiction.......but I don't understand a hell of a lot of stuff.

    Well Steve I am neither ignorant or stupid and I am sure if you ever met me you would like me .
    Now regarding bashing America and its inhabitants , I can't afford to do that as I have a son , yankee daughter inlaw
    "her words" and grandaughter who live in New york .
    I have been to America and can't really say I was over impressed , its ok !
    Now Subjects thats a classic :ROFLMAO: one thing is for sure you will never make a Scotsman a subject , especially one like me with an Irish Italian background , add some Glaswegian to that mix and you get a splendid chap but never a subject :)

    Most "Subjects" from the UK only see a very false facade of America as they are generally on holiday ( vacation )
    They don't see the daily drudgery endured by overly long commutes to work and the down and outs collecting plastic bottles in and around the city that never sleeps . or the massive traffic jams with drivers that have utterly no manners on the road whatsoever , and they never take the drive along route 66 and see the real poverty in America
