Kinda funny that you saw governments fall all over the Middle East this year due to popular uprisings in areas where the people were not 'empowered.' Yet in the empowered/educated West, where you can be anything you want to be, people continually say that the government/military is all-mighty and would *crush* the people like the insects they are. People are funny....

Only in America do we punish the law abiding/hard working and reward the lazy/criminals.

Have you seen the average American? They can barely stand up much less run and fight.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 12:23:30 PM PST
I bet this is not true.

No, I didn't. I used an analogy to highlight the fact that something being a hobby doesn't make it acceptable. Would you prefer I be more specific? Here: The fact that a weapon can be the basis for a hobby doesn't mean we as a society should be okay with people possessing that weapon.

Hobby =/= automatically okay
"It's okay because it's a hobby" =/= valid argument

So that is why none of the like 50,000 Yakuza in Japan have guns right? I wonder how dangerous the Swiss mafia is?

Yeah, they should focus on bullying!!!

"What about a real life scenario like Hurricane Katrina where the police were useless and people were getting robbed raped and killed? I bet a firearm would be good to defend yourself in that situation. Did the bad guys have guns?"

Probably. It certainly would have made the robbing, raping and killing easier.

Hooray guns!

"doesn't mean we as a society should be okay with people possessing that weapon."

As I said, feel free to move to a country where the society isn't OK with possessing that weapon. Guns are embedded in American culture. I don't think that will change during any of our lifetimes.

I guess I can't ignore you anymore. Am I allowed to mention any weapons I buy?

OK, so now the only people that own guns are now robbers rapers and killers? There are certainly gun nuts out there, but you sir are an anti-gun nut.

Lol, I was just giving you a hard time this morning. I could care less what you post.

Hence the mission accomplished post after you acknowledged CPT Numbnuts. ;)

Yes, yes he is.

Why wouldn't you be the one to move? You're the one who has a problem with regulating guns like it says in the document that's the basis for our country's entire legal system.

I recommend Somalia. No oppressive government gun control measures there. Or fees or taxation. Or government. It's a paradise of unfettered gun ownership and Randian self-sufficiency.

I have a large amount of guns and not a single one is registered anywhere and i dont plan on registering them no matter what happens. My dads old pistol might be registered to him but i think he might have gotten it at a gun show. I know that all the guns i have where traded or were bought when you didnt have to register.

Gives new meaning to the song, "if I had a hammer..."

However, would they even qualify as mass-murderers, using only a hammer? The cops would take them out before they got their kills. Unless you are talking old-school serial killers where they do it on the sly for many years before being caught. As far as these mass-killing sprees you see these days, not likely they would make it very far going melee only.

Gun control may not stop the nutcases, true, but it can definitely slow them down.

From a document that America was built on - 2nd Amendment of the Bill of Rights:

"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."

I actually have learned how to defend myself against someone wielding a hammer. They may get me but I might get them. Not the case with a gun.

In reply to an earlier post on Dec 27, 2012 12:43:43 PM PST
Sounds like it's saying that we need guns to have a militia?

"the people" are people that live in america

Voice of god says:
The officially ratified document was a slightly different version. It loses the commas after militia and arms and takes out the capitalization. It changed the meaning a little bit, plus it just reads better.

"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."

Nightmare says:
The 2nd Amendment, as I said previously, is irrelevant from a legal point of view. Even without it (or the rest of the Bill of Rights), the principle stands that the Federal Government does not have the power to regulate guns. The entire Bill of Rights is superfluous. The Federal Government is given specific powers only, and their authority does not extend beyond those delegated powers.
