Then I just thought, is this a great metaphor for the USA?? Destined to expire, but you don't know exactly when, and merely a pepper spray-- that's ineffective 30% of the time-- and not a more effective weapon?!?!?

We were told in training that OC works on "80% of people, 80% of the time".

Probably because the women have been made defenceless by your government.

it's actually legal for our women to fight back, use a gun, pepper spray, etc...we are still clinging to our ability to protect ourselves. Unfortunately you guys gave up your rights, without a fight, I thought you might, and now you have spite, but someday will see the light. DAMNNNNNNNN what a freakin poet I am

It is also legal for cops to shoot you when you use a gun.
Or even when you don't and just run.

Because you need a gun to defend your parking space.
Or even to keep some rubbish bin space.

Because owning a gun is your right. So I can assume you are armed in any fight.

And if about your gun you brag, means I just call in a swat or red flag.

He's a troll. He just comes here to heckle the pro-gun crowd and Americans in general. He doesn't do anything else here. He's not a survivalist and doesn't participate in survivalist discussions.
