    These gun-rights pissing contest threads are so predictable. You guys always try to out name-drop each other. Then you start reciting your favorite amendment. Yawn.

    Police officers and federal agents just roll their eyes and laugh. Meanwhile the rest of society still has to suffer. Nobody is safer with more guns.

    Speaking of predicable... there's the unsupportable nonsensical hyperbole that YOU offer in place of any useful addition to the conversation.

    Not half as predictable as what invariably comes out of your mouth.

    Threads like this must be what 7th graders bragging about their WoW high score sound like. Everyone posturing and boasting like their accomplished knowledge has any real world application.

    On the upside, buying guns and ammo for shooting only cans and paper targets does help the economy.

    Meanwhile, back to reality... Red Dawn was just movie, kids, Harry Callahan is fiction.

    The mugger I put in the ER and in the state penitentiary with one 9mm round to the gut might disagree with you.

    What is your purpose being on this thread other than to bait posters who aren't afraid of guns as you seem to be?
