How can a weapon be unsuitable for use in an urban area by honest citizens yet issued to civilian law enforcement officers for use in urban areas?
We all know that someday the Right wing that use to be conservatives, will some day try to destroy the constitution and our government.
We Democrats who are the real heros of America, need to be armed in order to kill the radical fake conservatives of the right, and the GOP.
The new right wing promotes violence and lies.
We conservatives-democrats will save America, the constitution and the our future from the death, starvation, and dishonor that Bush and his right wing buddies are promoting.
To listen to Bush, Cheney, or Rush is the same as listening to Satan.
Lord Protect our nation from right wing fools and destruction. Bless the United States Of America. In the name of Jesus Christ, AMEN
I spent a good long time convincing my girlfriend I hadn't turned into a murderous person because I owned guns. It's been a long and hard fight with her over that ****... but she's finally coming around on gun ownership. And she doesn't nag me anymore when I buy toys that go bang.
What I find funny is their use of the term "assault pistol"... WOW.
George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.
What scares me most about guns, personally, is that I can envision some owners being angry people with issues, and if you insult their honour or do something they don't like, they pull a gun on you. I agree with Jerry when he says the government removing firearms is a power grab, but gun owners themselves could potentially use them as a power grab for something else. I trust most people and think most know what it means to responsibly own a firearm, but people who enter a severe psychological state, like depression, rage, jealousy, etc., will have this easy death weapon available to them. Imagine getting into some kind of domestic dispute and a person pulls a gun on you? This is the fear side of me talking, and the thing I think of. At least if they reached for a knife you could put something between you and them.
In the context of the United States only, I would not support a weapons ban. People lose sight of the fact that being given the right to have a weapon does not mean being given the right to casual use. Using it on people means your actions are deferred to the law, and wrongful intent means dire consequences. I don't believe that removing guns will reduce crime, it will just change the weapon of choice to something else. Areas that are crime prone are that way due to many different factors, guns are just the means to an end. I've always believed that whatever weapon the police or soldiers can have, common people should be allowed to have as well.
Its quite simple:
The law, not owning a gun, make you part of the militia.
As a member of the miltiia, there is no legal requirement that you own a gun.
Thus, you are wrong.
