Ok this is summary of my huge post that i deleted.
I was saying that people looking for trouble, wanting to fight for fighting sake, or just because they can, or feel like it, or want a reputation. Fighting to prove something, its all wrong and i hate that. But many people dont understand this, or even care.
But if two guys have a real problem, and want to sort it out 1vs1, man to man. Then thats fair enough. Let them settle their differences, when one has had enough, thats it. They shake hands, put it behind them, and thats the end of it.
And dont tell me anything can be solved without violence, we are all human, and we all have emotions. Even the most mellow indiviuals can be pushed over the edge.
If some guy was giving your girlfriend a good seeing to behind your back, and you walked in and saw it, how could you stop yourself wanting to rip his head off? Especially if you love her.
I had a fight about 2 years ago because somebody hit me in the street and bust my nose, for no reason when i was leaving from the pub with some mates. He didnt even say anything, just ran over and cracked me one from the side, i didnt even see him. (this guy hit me because his friend reckoned that i had been chatting his girl up, which was bullshit, i didnt even know who she was.) So then my mate hit him, and an huge arguement kicked off.
The street was full of people wanting to see some action, which didnt help matters, But my mates and his mates agreed to let me and this guy fight 1vs1, even though it was his friend who started it for accusing me of trying to get with his girl (i was pissed off because he hit me for no reason) So we squared up, and i took him to ground and elbowed him in the mouth which bust his lips. There was a bit more scrapping but the whole thing was over pretty quickly. He said he has enough, i felt the same even though i got the better of him, we shook hands, settled our differences and that was the end of it.
I wasnt proud i won the fight, i wasnt happy that i hurt him, there was no satisfaction or glory to me, even though people were praising me for beating him. But i also felt no remorse, as far i was concerned i just put this guy in his place and showed him the error of his actions.
And now we are actually friendly with each other, if we ever bump into each other down the pub, we always say alright to one another, or share a joke, or whatever. Its all in the past.
My point is that im not a violent person. Im outgoing and friendly, i love socialising and having a laugh with people, and i hate fighting. But im not a door mat for anybody, i dont let people give me shit for no reason. Nobody else should too.
As for guns, they are just for people havent got the bottle to fight with their fists. Ive seen all sorts of stuff. Ive seen 10 people on 1 in the street, ive seen people get hit with a bottle or glass. Ive seen fights between big groups of lads over football. Its not nice at all, its really not pretty, but i would rather see this, that somebody using guns....
But any kind of unjustified violence, its wrong and i dont like it one bit. Just guns is the worst, others are lesser evils in my eyes...
I wrote so much more detail than this in the deleated post
