    You accused him of giving in to criminals. Your line of argument sucked. I pointed that out.

    Thirdly, you seem to be just a teenager - or maybe a young adult. I made the experience that people who live in dangerous (sub-)cultures tend to get a bit more realistic about their own badassitude when they become adult.

    Furthermore, I have the distinct feeling that you are overweight, easy to troll, never been outside New Mexico and are compensating by accepting and overinflating the cliches which are tied to the country you are living in.

    But that's only a theory; empirical data on that should emerge shortly...

    Albuquerque Police Dept have a very tough job, but I wouldn't live anywhere else.

    I also don't go around saying women should live someone where else due to safety. That's a crock of ****. Southwestern women are pretty damn tough, hell sometimes we go to Texas and walk around South Dallas just to check it out. (that's entertainment)
    It's reasons like this why I have to laugh and then tell the British to shut the **** up whenever they say Americans need to do away with the 2nd Amendment. It's nice being a tiny island, with no neighbor that's a corrupt nation owned by massive drug cartels with private armies.

    In the end, it all depends if you believe what Tank claims. I do not.

    Also, if it were true, then his local area is in an extreme situation right now, close to anarchy - and therefore not relevant to this discussion.

Get over the fear of weapons and someone being mad at you.
    Thanks for the offer! (The flight would be too expensive for me though).
    I can imagine that shooting can be quite a nice hobby.

    I don�t really want to to argue with you, I think Nils already addressed the main points.

    (One might add that the specific situation in New Mexico could be dramatically improved by revisiting certain drug laws but I fear this discussion might get ugly.)

    But one thing does interest me:
    Why don�t you want to live nowhere else?

    The post would actually been better without mentioning "overweight" and "easy to troll". (Hey you gave me the speech about culture and **** so it is my turn to play the moral-fag. ;P )

    Anyway, great posts, keep up the good work!

    You should probably stop making assumptions out of Continental European ignorance like a dumbass.

    It's not that I assume that such things do not happen - it is just that I do not believe that Tank is very much involved in this. There is just too much grandeur and forced badassery in his posts for someone who lives in such a crappy situation.

    Plus: you are obviously ignorant of Continental European ignorance.

    Kf was whining about guns and admitting he is undecided about guns and that is being weak, I wan him to take a stand.

    What I claimed was that we live at the intersection of Interstate 25 and 40, it is a major artery for drugs coming up from El Paso/Juarez, not the culture but a fact of logistical drug running so California and Colorado can have their drugs.

    You did not die?- what the ****? (you mentioned RESPECT- Lets stick with that reason you are still alive)

    Why would I insult a Brit? Not stupid, I get along with everyone, and surely if I was in a pub the only thing getting insulted would be my liver

    Yes I am overweight- So what? Why do you even give a ****? I am old too, do you wanna picture also?

    Trolling? I was bored- and I read all Kf posts, mostly drivel and weak.
    Been outside NM? Who cares? But yes, I have been other places.

    - I do have some Rotary Club friends in Berlin. Nice place, prolly in a different part of Berlin than you. Just sayin' someday I will visit them. Perhaps we can lift a pint?
    ...and just for you, I redacted the ad hominem verbiage from my current reply-in consideration of your feelins'
    (Back to trolling...)

    Hey now, Canada's got some positives too. Good fishing, decent gun ranges, elk.

    Thanks for your consideration. I do admit that I probably had a wrong picture of you - which is why I wanted to troll you for a bit to see what happens. If you were a teenager overcompensating, your reaction would probably be different.

    Also, I was in the mood to troll.

    So, I do apologize for that.

    Back to topic: if your hometown is more or less invaded by a criminal cartel, which probably is better organized and eqipped then the citizens, wouldn't that be the one situation where the government should step in?

    On a side note: PM me when you are in Berlin; I'd glady lift that pint with you.
