    Have you missed Turtledude repeatedly saying in this thread that he thinks that he should be able to have a 17 shot Glock that police have because he is thinks he has the same authorization to use one as do the the police?

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    There are many nations with far higher homicide rates than the US. SEVERAL TIMES higher. Start with Mexico, whose gun control laws are draconianly strict, whose homicide rate is over four times ours. There's Honduras with TWENTY times our rate!


    It isn't about gun control when comparing nations; it is about culture, history, governmental corruption and ineffectiveness, poverty, and gangs/factionalism/drug trade.

    This has been gone over before, and over and over and over until I get really tired of having to repeat the truth....

    You are the one with a distorted view of reality.

    They are tucked away and are strictly for any potential "checks and balances" situation that may arise. Too many people have no idea that our current government seems to be positioning itself to become a domestic threat to US citizens.

    Yeah if you compare the US with third world countries. If on the other hand you compare the US to other wealthy nations, we are at the top of the heap as the graph below shows.



    "the U.S. firearm homicide rate is about 20 times higher than in 22 other populous high-income countries combined, despite similar non-lethal crime and violence rates. Unsurprisingly then, they claim that in recent years, among 23 populous, high-income countries, 80 percent of all firearm deaths occurred in the United States. "

    Quit using this incident to try to argue for gun control cause it ain't gonna happen. That idiot could have just as easily ploughed over hundreds of people in the streets using his vehicle. What are ya gonna do, ban automobiles? The right to own guns is there for a very important reason that maybe you can't conceive. It's not negotiable, no matter how many shooting sprees occur.

    ah the moronic apples to oranges comparison that is destroyed by the fact that as ENGLAND banned guns its crime rate went UP and as Americans began carry concealed weapons and buying more and more guns crime went DOWN

    I guess Heller was too complex for your understanding.

    and yes my right of self defense is the same as a cop's

    they are civilians too. (another lie I destroyed)

    ever noticed that the people who most want us to be disarmed are the same ones who want more and more government. Liberals don't hate wealth and firearms, they just don't want us having either
