    Why should anyone have to justify being allowed to posses something that is outlined as a right? It would seem more prudent to justify banning it instead. If, for instance, I proposed an outlaw to a certain phrase, such as "pink turkey," which is a nonsensical thing to say, would you accept it openly because "you don't need" to be allowed to say it? Or, would like some meaningful evidence that such a phrase is harmful?

    Just wait until you pump a shell into an Ithica 12 guage. Ker-chuk. Poetry in motion. Sweet rhapsody.

    You know, I believe that sound alone has stopped more prisoners from going over the wall than all the AR 15's put together.

    You are correct sir.

    Phalynx. You're not just a rifle.

    You are more than a rifle.

    Re: What is an assault rifle?

    For me, it's not the sound...it's just the feel of it. The smoothness, the perfection of good metal. First thing I do, when I get a new knife, is sharpen it...yes, they come sharp, machined to some precise plane, whatever...I respect more the imperfect, but personal edge I put on them. The skill it takes to do so, the satisfaction of having a self made edge that can cut a tomato by the slightest touch alone...the smoothness of the cut, etc.


    I love knives.
