    Infantry units do not just carry 'pea' shooters.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Why would people want or need to punch a gun? What good would that do besides maybe hurting your knuckles?

    But hey, if that's the sort of thing that gets you off......

    If it's not a literal, tangible, actual contract it is not bidding and I dare say doesn't exist anywhere but someones mind. You can not bind me to something you can not even prove I agreed to. It's nonsensical gibberish that means no more to me than someone claiming something is scientific fact and then going forth and not providing any proof it is.

    Did you know Thomas Hobbes's "The Leviathan" wasn't actually talking about a giant sea monster either, right?
    Yes, hobbes was using it as a metaphor for the state. It did however act much like a sea monster, imho.

    And the "State of Nature" is not an actual "State" nor is it necessarily LITERALLY meaning someone that's just out in "nature"
    Again, I realize this. It doesn't change the fact that you can not call something a contract that is in fact not a contract.

    Mortars are ordnance, not arms. I'm fine with crew served arms being included, though am willing to compromise there. Having served in the 82nd, I'm well aware of the weapons made available to infantry units.

    To my understanding, there have only been two incidents in the past half century where a Class III weapon was used in a crime, and one of those was a police officer using a duty weapon.



    It's much ado about nothing.
    A lot of people on this thread would call this an obvious violation of the 2A. Do you agree?
    I fight against the ignorant, irresponsible, and/or closed-minded.
