    No logic whatsoever in any of that.
    Just because you think no one remembers "Gorbie" doesn't mean that what he said is some how less accurate or pertinate.

    And it doesn't matter how large or good a military is if the force going against it is larger by 20-1. And remember, if our government gets to be too tyrannical half of that military would go awol and help the rest of the populace. Possibly even more than half considering every military member that I have ever met values the constitution far more than our politicians in the government.

    As I've said in previous posts, let's think about this scenario: Guns are banned, criminals get guns through black markets (or just use steak knives), and there would be an increase in crime due to new "gun cartels". I dont know if everyone should be armed or if there are just too many idiots, because that's what really kills people.

    No the possession of arms means that it would be effective against by any thing short of a nuclear war. And the general populace would have the capability to carry arms. The arms would include military grade arms and lower.

And if you're not in fear that your own military (staffed by your own families) would suddenly turn against you and implement a dictator state, then who is it you think is going to do that to you?

    It's nonsense, isn't it. Just is not a threat.
    It would be difficult in a European system for a tyrannical government to start due to the fact European governments have a multiparty system where as the US has a 2 party system. It is more likely that one party would get control of the government here than in Europe because of that.

    Also while the US military is not a threat to our liberties as much having federal agencies with police powers like the DEA on the other had is and if a jaunta would try to take over the US it would do so through these agecies with police powers.

    Lets just give everyone access to the foot ball. That way if they are ever threatened, they can threaten to destroy the world. So no would would ever be crazy enough to assault them.

    Right?

    If guns were illegal less criminals could obtain it.

    If a criminal has a gun and you have a gun. Odds are your gun won't do you much good.

    Says who? They already have them.... do you think they are just going to hand them over? Or do you support door to door warrantless searches of every home, location, and place on U.S. Soil?


    If a criminal has a gun and you have a gun. Odds are your gun won't do you much good.
    Explain this logic.....
    "I condemn the ideology of White Supremacy and Nazism. They are thugs, criminals, and repugnant, and are against what I believe to be "The American Way" "
    Thus my obligatory condemnation of White supremacy will now be in every post, lest I be accused of supporting it because I didn't mention it specifically every time I post.

    Yeah, because no one ever took down an armed man with a gunshot ... Might as well have the police turn their guns in since they wont do them much good.

    You ignoramuses really need to learn that it isn't that no one wants to have a rational discussion about gun control, its that you're all as retarded as your ideas and your ignorance makes it impossible to take your naive tripe seriously.

    Your lack of a brain just amuses me. I pull a gun and point it to your head gl using your gun.

    You can't do that to the police for two reasons. One you're not suppose to approach a police officer, and if you do in a suspicious way they are aleart. Two, police officers get communication and back up so yes one can get killed but odds are you're not going to get very far.

    It did work for alcohol and drugs. Learn to read the word less.

    You reveal a huge lack of understanding about violent crime and how it develops, as well as police work, in this post.

    A person who is not alert is a walking cheeseburger looking for a predator, and nothing will help him. Having said that, it is rare that a criminal simply sticks a gun to your head without some preliminary actions that tend to warn the alert observer.

    Numerous news stories have been posted to DP about armed citizens who took down armed criminals with their guns. Not long ago, a legally armed citizen shot and killed a robber armed with a shotgun at a Waffle House near my home.

    It is more complex than your simplistic view.

    Also police work... it is also far more complex. Police often have to get close to subjects in the course of investigating a situation, and a call can turn violent suddenly or change from "apparently unarmed subject" to "oh chit he's got a gun!" in a split second.

    Even so, police carry both guns and Tasers these days... because there are some situations where the gun is the right tool for the job.

    Like the mother that shot the intruder recently, who was trying to break into the closet she and her children took refuge in when he broke into the house... what should she have used, harsh language?
