    And, at any rate, none of the Republicans have much to show me. My interests are much more isolationist than anyone else up there, so you'd probably rather my political beliefs reign. Unfortunately, there are the UBLs and Tojos and Hitlers of the world who would seem to disagree, so that's not the way of things in this world. But we are way too interventionalist, that's for certain, and I'd love to see that changed.

    As for the 'gun nut' comment, it is what it is. I've seen the thread, I know what you're referring to. My children know how they are to act around weapons, my weapons are secured. My family has owned weapons for generations, we've never had an incident like it. Why are you calling me a 'gun net?'

    As for the incident you refer to, it's the weapons' owner's responsiblity. It's a choice to own weapons; you chose to do so, you also chose to take on the responsiblity to ensure their weapons are properly secured. That's the responsiblity of the person owning the weapon, not the government.

    Personal responsiblity. Something a lot of people the world over should study and live.
    What on earth are you talking about? You have as much personal responsibility as a flea.

    I guess those with a measure of independence all left your island nation some time ago, leaving behind those with a natural inclination to be subjects to authority and a tendency toward unquestioning obedience. If I had to between a extremely small risk that someone with a gun might shoot me some day, or to live in a nation covered in CCTV, I think I'd take the one that is still largely free of surveillance but ever so slightly more dangerous. Not that I'm happy with the way things are going here; I think the US will eventually become as paranoid and fearful as Britain, but by then I plan to be long gone.

    It's not St. Andreas. It's San Andreas. You might as well refer to my city as St. Francis and I'll refer to your capital city as Londinium.
    Minor correction...'San' is Spanish for 'Saint' in CA, it is quite typical for towns to be named after saints because, at one time, a chain of Catholic 'missions' populated the area along a road that was called El Camino Real with 21 missions, 4 presidios, pueblos etc.

    'Ever so slightly' more dangerous? Ken, your gun-crime statistics are appallingly high. The last time I checked CCTV couldn't kill me, or go on a shooting spree. I would say, though, that far too much money is spent on CCTV installation by cash-strapped local authorities, and for little apparent benefit.

    Can't handle the argument so attack the poster? Not exactly an innovative debating technique, Iolo.

    Do you disagree with the idea of making people responsible for themselves? Do you feel a government is better able to determine what a person should or should not do? That is, after all, at the core of this discussion on 'preppers.' Someone who prepares generally feels they are responsbile for themselves and their families in a time of crisis for a reasonable amount of time. Stockpile a little food, a little water, get a generator, make sure you have fuel for your vehicles, medical supplies on hand, all to hold out for a week or two while the government gets their collective act together. (You will, of course, have your extremists out there.) And part of that preparation, for me, at any rate, includes a method of protection, in this case, firearms.

    Hence my sarcastic comment about referring to my city, "San Francisco" as "St. Francis". "San Andreas" is the proper name of the fault and should not be anglicized.
