    Can you explain it? Isn't it a BAD thing that terror groups are able to fight the military to a standstill? Or am I misunderstanding you here?

    I can't. This is important.

    All weapons should be banned. I live in Australia and gun ownership is illegal here, in doing so we have far less crime per capita then the United States. I'm not trying to offend Americans here (i'm quite fond of Yanks) but I completely diagree with some of the constitution you have in place.

    Based on your answers to the questionnaire, you most closely resemble survey respondents within the Enterpriser typology group. This does not mean that you necessarily fit every group characteristic or agree with the group on all issues.

    Guns are illegal in Australia? I didn't know that. Honestly I never would've guessed...

    Re: Which weapons should be legal to personally own?

    From 1980 gun ownership in Australia has been on the decline, after several high-profile shootings in the late 80's early 90's the government made a national doctrine for illegality of all firearms with exempt permission for farmers who need to shoot feral/introduced animals. This law comes under the 1996 National Agreement on Firearm policy. Ever since, crime per capita in Australia has been decreasing by approximately 4% per year.

    So are small boobs in porn. As well as Left 4 Dead 2 (well they got a "reworked" version without the gore). I'm not one to really endorse much on the banning side. I think the rights and the liberties of the individual are what should reign supreme over all.

    Why the hell can't civilians get those pepper-spray OC paint balls, bean-bag shot gun rounds or flash suppressors anyway?

    I only selected the ones for which ownership should be an inalienable right. I would have clicked on dynamite, too... except that I think any form of significant explosives should be licensed.

    Handguns and automatic rifles ought to be a matter of showing proof of your age and citizenship and walking out the same day. Machine guns and anti-materiel weapons should be licensed. Not even governments should be allowed to own weapos of mass destruction.
