What dubious Website are you linking to, Jim46? It promotes a book on "Islamization", has no link to the source of informaton (Tiroler Tageszeitung), does not mention any quantities and has no hard facts suggesting that a rise in turnover is due to the migrant crisis and not to gun licence holders replacing their old guns. That's pure scaremongering.
von Jim46 (US), 2015-10-28, 15:11  like dislike  Spam?  
I don't see the book promotion you speak of.  This is one of very many American "alternate" news
sites, who provide us with news that our mainstream outlets will not.  There is no link to the Tyrol
newspaper, because no one here could read it anyway.  Even the Czech speaker had to be translated.
An Austrian gun merchant provided more information.  Is he a liar?

I don't think gun stores there are empty because of people replacing old guns, do you?

Ausgerechnet die Tschechen, die so viel ich weiß noch keinen Flüchtling aufgenommen haben, tönen blöd herum!
Möglich, dass in Tirol mehr Feuerwaffen gekauft wurden, dort ziehen ja auch keine Flüchtlingsströme durch. Es ist immer wieder beobachtet worden, dass Fremden-Angst und Fremdenfeindlichkeit am größten dort sind, wo sich selten ein Flüchtling hinverirrt.
Die derzeitigen Flüchtlinge werden an der Grenze versorgt, in Züge oder Busse verfrachtet und an die deutsche Grenze gebracht, außer sie suchen in Österreich um Asyl an, dann geht es in Erstaufnahmezentren. Abgesehen von den Leuten, die sich freiwillig oder beruflich um Flüchtlinge kümmern, haben noch die wenigsten Österreicher einen oder eine von ihnen zu Gesicht bekommen.

Thank you for the insight.  Are Austrian gun shops empty or not?  I always expect that such

No thanks.  We'll not allow our criminal gov't to disarm us so.  This submission to government
authority you propose is exactly what the Founding Fathers feared.  That's why the 2nd Amendment
was placed in the Bill of Rights, second only to freedom of speech, assembly, and religion.

As to the Second Amendment, you fail to mention that it has been a hotly disputed issue ever since it was foisted on the US statute books. By no means all the Founding Fathers championed or wholeheartedly endorsed this revamping of the Constitution.

Wikipedia(EN): Second_Amendment_to_the_United_States_Constitution

In a democracy, even a clear-cut majority must not terrorize an opposing minority of citizens! Given an age of stultifying mass demagoguery, unrestrained and unscrupulous majority rule amounts to the most heinous kind of despotism!
The strongest argument for gun control is found in the 2nd amendment itself, which reads:  #822137
von [<>], 2015-10-28, 16:23  like dislike  Spam?  38.121.148....
A well regulated militia, being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms, shall not be infringed
von Jim46 (US), 2015-10-28, 16:38  like dislike  Spam?  
4;[<>]  The militia at that time meant ALL the able-bodied men.  You'll find that in the link below.

4;Proteus.  We are a constitutional republic of sovereign states, not a democracy.  We have some
democratic principles.  The Founders sounded quite pro-gun to me.

We and Switzerland have managed to survive quite a long time, don't you think?

I don't know the Daily Mail.  According to them, Britain is more violent than the U.S.

In 2009, twelve years after the Firearms Act of 1997 was passed, Daily Mail Online reported that
Britain was “the most violent country in Europe.” They also reported that Britain’s home figures
showed “the UK [had] a worse rate for all types of violence than the U.S. and South Africa.”

As an Englishman, born and bred, wanting and often needing accurate translations from English to German and visa versa, I often find myself frustrated, misguided, misled, and in some cases downright offended by some of the debates and discussions held within this forum.

I have followed this forum for some time now, having, as previously stated, need for accuracy. Why misled, misguided and offended? Because far too often I have seen NON native ENGLISH speakers, basically telling bonafide natives that THEY are wrong. How dare they? I would not presume to correct a native of a country of which I did not have a FULL understanding for that language. Furthermore,  the title and therefore, obviously the remit for this forum is that of an English/German dictionary. If that is the case, why are so many entries inserted with reference to American English? When will it be realised that American english is NOT "English" it is bastardised english. One might as well call Bangldeshi English, English. it is NOT and neither is American English. There would be far less self righteous argument and far more accuracy and clarity on this forum if contibutors were to stick to the remit/title of this forum. It would also be far easier for all concerned with accuracy and validity, such as my humble non German speaking self, when researching accurate translations. Please, please and please again, STOP muddying the waters and for some of you in particular, please get off your not so knowledgable high horses and deal with accurracy. There is only one Eng.lish, the Queen's English and that spoken by natives of the United Kingdom. Thank you.

PS why is it that none of you stalwarts of American English have not created a forum concerned with American English/German translations? Be less confusing, less confrontational, less argumentative and deliver more accuracy!!!!
P.P.S I am not subversive, radical or small minded, I am simply an ENGLISHMAN.

von Jim46 (US), 2015-10-29, 05:04  like dislike  Spam?  
Never hijacked anything in my life.  The "chat" category gives friends a chance to talk about other
things besides EN and DE.  This thread grew unusually long, and I still don't have an answer to the
original question.  You should become a contributing member, which would allow you to input your
English opinion on the translations.

Thank you for your suggestion. I would be happy to contribute but for the fact that I have seen so much twaddle by some so called English/German translators and the irrelevant and bitchy arguments carried out, not to mention non-English natives promoting themselves as knowing better than native English speakers. Too much hassle and irrelevance. LIke many others, I simply want accurracy not ego driven drivel.

Thank youfor your history references Proteus. I take it that you must be a true Englishman. If this is the case and you are wishing to get down to basics, one, as an Englishman would call those great "American" leaders, traitors, as by the definitions you yourself have given them, they were English but they chose to fight against their own peoples. GIving them as examples would be the act of an American, not an Englishmen. Not only that, they encouraged semi-illliteracy by not educating or setting up educational establishments that maintained true English, but once again I thank you for reminding me of American history and a number of traiterous Englishmen. Furthermore I would like to re-iterate that I do not wish or seek to confrontation, simply accuracy, though I will point out that I will not take history lessons about my own country from someone who is neither pro English or bonefide English. My schooling has been entirely within the English educational system and if a "foreigner" decides to promote false information purporting to be fully knowledgable about a language to which some of the contributors to this forum claim, then as any countrman with a historical language, not a compiled and designed language would do, I correct or voice my defence of the language of my birth.

Do you have a Spellcheck on your computer? Mine tells me that there are only two "l"s in "illiteracy", and that it is "traitorous", not "traiterous". If you are seeking to promote accuracy, I suggest that you start with your own entries.
But then, what would a benighted colonial like myself know? (Albeit one with a PhD.)

The English educational system, it appears, is not infallible.  (only two "l"s)

Thank you for your corrections. You are absolutely correct in that the English educational system is not infallible and neither am I. I am also not a contributor. I also know the difference between English and bastardised English, even if I at times mistype or spell incorrectly. I also know that I would expect that an English/German forum contributor to be accurate in their entries. I do not have to be. I am here to learn German from German nationals or those who at least grew up or were educated there. I intend to hopefully live in Germany. I can already speak, and more importantly, know the subtleties of the language from being a native and educated from primary school through to career and finally semi retirement, in England. I also realise and understand there are many dialects in Germany. I will never know them all and not a single one to anything more than basic conversational standard. However, I will never for example live in Austria or Switzerland. It therefore follows that Swiss German or Austrian German is and would be of no use to me, in particular if I have need of localised German. I am certain that there would be occasion when I would be incorrect. I obviously do not know what is correct or incorrect, therefore I rely on accuracy from contributors. I have seen non English natives ardently arguing with natives about their own language, even though the non native is clearly wrong. If I see that kind of misleading information being offered and argued by contributors in my own language how on earth can I rely on the accuracy being offered in a language I want or need accurate and precise guidance in. That is akin to being in a plumbers' forum or instructional site and being giving guidance by the odd sheep shearer who happened to have changed their taps once and think they are also plumbers. Apologies for any spelling mistakes I may have made. I will go to an English forum for further education. In the meantime, for accurate translation to and from German I came to this site. No disrespect intended or delivered. I shall make sure that I shall return your good intention by paying much more attention to your contributions and similarly pointing out, purely out of gratitude, any inaccuracies that you contribute in the future.
