    crip,


    They will say you have no need, then when you ask what "need" has to do with it, they will trail off into hoplophobic nonsense about guns being scary and death machines.

    No no, Bodhi's argument has merit. After all we are all the "militia" according to US law.


    He gets it backwards though. In order to have a militia in good working order, we cant restrict all of the people from owning arms.

    Not the other way around.

    There are alot of things we don't need. So I hope they wouldn't be foolish enough to tell me over the INTERNET, that I don't NEED a gun.

    Aside from that, I've never argued that I need one, just that if I should want one, why can't I have one? I've never gotten an answer to that.

    maybe its because guns have magical properties to turn even the most law abiding citizen in to kill crazy madmen?

    If the person takes a gun they must sign up to a basic proficiency course on the chosen weapon.

    Done.
    Shall not be infringed, pretty sure that's in there. If you're this concerned with proficiency, then move to make shooting a class during at some point in the school system, Jr. High or something.

    Zombies.

    I need an AA 12 in case of zombie attack. I need fully automatics in case the undead rise against us. There's all sorts of weapons I need in case of zombie attack.

    Nice try at a cop-out, but it doesn't fly.

    When you vote for a candidate you are supporting ALL of his policies because you are putting ALL of those policies in office.

    You voted for Obama, that means you support gun control.

    Now he is getting his socialized healthcare, increasing taxes which will reduce tax revenue and reduce jobs, all while in a recession.

    Gun control is only the most recent, and predicted, act of creating the police state.

    The American public was unable to overcome their public education, and now we're going to suffer for it.

    USING the damn thing, however, the owner better be damn sure of what he's shooting the thing at, because his ass is responsible for every single bullet that leaves the muzzle of that weapon, and if it harms an innocent, he should go to jail.

    Just like cops should, but don't, go to jail when they go off on one of their trigger happy sprees in Compton.

    ====

    If a person owns a single-shot .22 rifle (if there is such a thing) and he shoots at a burglar in his home, misses, and the bullet goes out the window and into the head of the driver of a passing car which then hits a school bus forcing it down a railway embankment causing an Amtrak passenger train to derail resulting in the deaths of 452 people....the man the pulled the trigger is responsible and should face the appropriate penalties.

    ====

    But there's no reason to blame the gun, or other gun owners, and deny those owners their Constitutional freedom to own guns, because the occasional jackass can't shoot.

    Did the government outlaw dicks just because Clinton was a rapist?

    Intent matters. A man should not be jailed simply because he made an honest mistake in the heat of the moment.
