    I'm sure, they can't even keep track of their own inventories. It took them nearly 5 years to simply discover they had what I'd estimate to be about 450,000 dollars of guns and computers missing from inventory. Not sure if they even found one culprit. It's an incompetent agency, I don't understand how they still exist.
    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    I would never shoot my own citizens.

    My only caveat is if they were terrorist organizations, currently.

    What I think is disgusting is the idea that some people think it is OK to shoot other people who are not doing anything to harm them, just because.

    How do they justify that. By what right and how does the coincide with their relgious beliefs?

    I would say the same. Given the right (or to put it another way, terribly horribly wrong) circumstances, there is only one person I would probably never shoot: the one person that means more to me than life itself.

    Anyone else may be subject to sudden termination if they pose a lethal threat to myself or that one person.

    I don't understand it either. The field agents have to follow orders, which means they can only be as good as their superiors allow them to be, unfortunately their superiors tend to be imbiciles.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    If someone is trying to harm you physically or using threat of force to;
    1) Take your property
    2) Relieve you of your rights
    3) Compel you to go against your values
    4) Control you
    Then they are harming you, it matters not whether it is a standard criminal, unruly mob, or an out of control tyranny. No one is advocating shooting anyone in particular nor anytime certain but rather if hands were ever forced.

    Re: Would you shoot your fellow Americans?

    It might be helpful if you gave a scenario and not just a vague question. My answer would be never say never...not if the situation warranted it.

    Small gang of 6 people kick in your front door with evil intent. Your 'own citizens'. What is your play exactly?
