    I don't want to ban any of these, except the atomic bomb. However, I also believe there should be restrictions. For handguns I think you should at least have a shoting certificate. For AK-47 and M-16 there should be a lot more requirments, but it should be legal.

    No, you don't.
    Victimization in Australia is 30.4% (first place), it's 21.1% in the US.

    In general Australia has a higher crime rate, except in the number of homocides. Check it out in the link below.

    The keyword in your poll question (to me) is the word 'own.'

    (1) the organized militia, which consists of the National Guard and the Naval Militia; and
    (2) the unorganized militia, which consists of the members of the militia who are not members of the National Guard or the Naval Militia.
    So upon reaching the age of 45 you have to hand over your gun?

    Yes, there is...because I want one.

    It makes guns less noisy...not soundless.

    Currently silencers can be possessed with a special stamp from BATFE (also known as "those bastards").

    We must take unicorns away from all irresponsible people, and by irresponsible people I mean everyone. No one has the right to use a deadly mythical beast to harm another human, even if that human is a psychotic serial killing child rapist seeking to harm your family. You should dial 9-1-1 and wait for professionals who are trained to use unicorns to arrive much too late to actually prevent the crime in progress.

    Hmmmm - and that does work? I mean it worked in Zimbabwe didn't it?

    It worked in Iraq didn't it?

    And these are countries where it is not that difficult to get guns.

    But the great American myth rolls on..............

    Tell me, when exactly are you going to take up arms?
