~ I have been internalizing this as written by 'mugaleins' and can not agree.. I find your view dangerous.
Points of conflict of view are apparent; Your neighbor may feel a threat and thus wishes to show ability to defend..
and that you have expressed no tolerance of defense permitted.. The expression ' Blow him away is a extremely heavy handed term.. and to your last statement;
"Grow a brain, people - we don't tolerate individuals on the fringe of life who threaten our own lives with either ridiculous or stupid ideologies." you said...
~ but you do. The USA seems to have great hordes of nut bar crazy zealots willing to arm and shoot before discussions
of neutrality have a chance.. with your attitude piece has no chance.. Don't you think a written invitation to a diner or BBQ and discussions of mutual interests might lead to a future.. even a friendship.. this 'Blow em away'., sort of BS must stop.
Are the terms trust, share, support so foreign to you. Find some common ground or you will find some blood spilled might be your own.. It is not weakness to back away from hostility but a opportunity to negotiate a piece and mutual advantage.
