    Is death all that matters to you? what about those people who have
    seen bombs ripping apart their homes and shops etc? What about 79 year
    old men being kneecapped.

    Care to explain how voting yes will, considering we have the Real IRA
    (I just love that name) being run by the Louth ex-quartermaster of the

    take their arms since they have supposedly given up violence.
