    Re: Would You Give Up Your Guns?

    I don't stand in the way of anybody owning guns but I consider them useless even now. All I could do would be get myself in trouble. The odds of me being invaded by armed men is extraordinarily low and the odds of my winning the gunfight even lower and the odds of my injuring a neighbor or a cat are certainly present. I'm a treasure-trove of exotic, noisy non-lethal weapons. A burglar, at least a slightly better possibility than an armed robber, will get the crap scared out of him and will exit rapidly.

    OTOH, if they're one day late with my SS check, I'll be marching with my fellow geezers carrying (borrowed) muskets as we begin the long trek to Washington DC to overthrow the Treasury Department.

    If you read about that then you need to post that because the word needs to get out.

    Ok, no offence intended here but I don't know you, I don't see how any fact-dependent situation about you affects or applies to me or anyone else, and I don't see how you're representative of any significant demographic.

    I had to use my gun just last month, so we're at a draw.

    I erred... he said he would not enforce any new federal gun control he thought was unconstitutional ... not just gun bans

    Re: Would You Give Up Your Guns?

    I used to be a patriot and spent years defending my country and in law enforcement. Now as a retired individual I do private security. Now days I look around and I don't even recognize my country of birth anymore.

    I will not say what I would do openly because this site may be monitored. I will say I no longer trust the government or the American people to make the right decision. Every year I see us move closer not to socialism or communism but true democracy, rather than the constitutional republic we are supposed to be. The American people are getting the government they deserve.

    This country is moving in a bad direction and I and my wife already have plans to leave after her retirement.

    At this point all I can say is good riddance.

    I voted no on the assumption you mean all guns in the band.

    Re: Would You Give Up Your Guns?

    No offense intended here either. I thought my post was very clear that I had no objections to gun ownership and I specifically talked about myself and no one else. I don't have children, I don't exhibit wealth, I don't start **** with people, I'm loved and watched over by my neighbors and while I live in the heart of the city where there is plenty of petty crime, I'm very low on the target list. I also used to have a bad temper and while I'm now the mellowest old guy you could ask for, I still worry about anger causing irresponsibility. Everybody has different circumstances.

    I'm sorry you had to use your gun, I'm glad you had one in your time of need and I support your right to as many guns as you're willing to invest in.

    Even better, perhaps; I understand that in Wyoming, there's a bill in the works that, when enacted, will make it a criminal offense for any federal agent to attempt to enforce any federal gun law in the state, punishable by fines of up to $2,000 and up to two years in jail.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    If the government had good animal control of dangerous/pest species. If Venison, Elk, Moose, Antelope and other game animal meat was sold in supermarkets. And if Liberalism and all other forms of socialism were made a capital crime.

    Then I might, just maybe consider it. Until then, No way. You can try to take them, but it wouldn't be the first battle I was in, fighting for what I believe in. Been there, done that and don't want to do it again, but will if I have to.
