Default Re: How self centered of you.

Whose opinion am I supposed to write about? Yours? You need to lighten up a little. We are all here to share our opinions, and if that offends your incredibly self-righteous sensibilities, do us a favor and go to a more PC BBS.

Default Re: ARMED CITIZENS DON

Actually... if you break it down by state, check which states have the lowest crime rates in the U.S., and which have the most restrictive gun "control" laws. It's an eye-opener. Or by city ordinances: New York City and Washington D.C. have some of the most restrictive laws in the country, and the worst crime rates. No, more guns do not mean no crime, but fewer guns does appear to mean more crime.

Default Re: Riding without licence plates? That

I agree with your point somewhat. But not all Americans are self center. Some of the comments here were a little childish. I guess the proper response should be "it doesn't really concern me but it was interesting to know about how motorcycling affects other countries" I am sure if this was a "South Africa" motorcycle site, the response would be about the same, "who cares about America" So, try not to get to upset.

Hey be nice you naughty person. I drive a super cool Harley and I'm super cool. I think there doing the logical thing, riding without plates and I hope we never have cameras for tickets. Looks like I better renew my AMA and NRA membership. Always remember, God is in control!

Default I agree...

I was doing a cool 70MPH on interstate 94 in Wisconsin, when a WHP trooper passed me doing at *least* 20 MPH faster, with no cherries on. I see local cops here in Minneapolis (especially in my suburb of Bloomington) routinely exceed the limit by more than enough to recieve a ticket if you happen to be a taxpayer doing the same thing. I also had the great misfortune to live on a road that was the subject of a crackdown by local cops, who set up a lidar trap once or twice a week for about two months. They managed to get me once on the way to work. I was so mad that I called the police station and yelled at some hapless jerk cop on the line for five minutes. Oh, well, whattya gonna do? Except write a letter explaining why I'll vote the police chief out next term... My letter's already drafted.

Default whoops...

I guess MO may have changed things up a bit. You used to be able to request to send a message to someone, and MO would send it to the private (legitimate) address they have on file. Send me a note at uncle__jesse@hotmail.com (two underscores there.)

Default That's not really accurate....

As stated by my good patriot CBR1000F, the areas of the US that have the most restrictive gun laws tend to be areas with the highest crime rates. Chicago, New York, L.A., D.C., and Minneapolis for example. Our country can only be considered armed to the teeth (compared with most other countries) if you consider simply owning a gun to equal the state of being armed. 18 states still do not allow people to carry their guns in public. If the gun is at home, you're not armed.



The United States DOES have one of the lowest burglary rates in the world. Why? Ask any felon. They'll tell you that breaking into a house in the U.S. is the way to get shot, especially at night. Burglars here will spend a lot of time "casing" a house to ensure that nobody is home before breaking in.



In every state with previously restrictive laws regarding the concealed carry of weapons, after the restrictions were changed to allow any non-felonious qualified individual to carry, the crime rate has dropped. Criminals themselves say that their greatest fear is running into an armed victim, not the cops.



How about the town of Kennesaw, Georgia?



In 1982, their city council passed a resolution requiring all heads of household to posses a firearm to "protect the safety, security, and general welfare of the city and its inhabitants." All across the country, people predicted blood to run in the streets and shootings in the homes. None of it came to pass, but their crime rate dropped by 89%, making it the lowest crime rate of any city that size in the entire country. After the initial drop, their crime rate has remained at the same low level for the last 16 years.

Now let's see if we can get Zionist (living under freedoms bought and paid for with American blood, no doubt) to shut his/her big mouth too!
