    What harm is there is allowing me to own an actual M16-A2? The only difference is the 3-round burst.
    excellent point--the DCM (now a private corporation but for years part of the US government) supplied civilians with 1903 Springfields, MI Garands, MI carbines and suitable ammo so civilians would be able to shoot military rifles accurately. I used to shoot garand matches as a young man and the ammo was government supplied. i have bought several MI garands and carbines and lots of surplus ammo from that entity and practice with them. Hoping they sell of some M16's in the future for the same reason

    Indeed,.. I how many 'hell fire' trigger systems there are out there?

    And a good working three round burst HAS to be 10 times safer and more accurate than any "bump fire" systems.

    Or,... Just grab a rubberband!

    No one needs a car that goes over 80mph but there they are, in almost every drive way.
    No one needs fancy/flashy clothes but again they exist every where.

    I seriously hope your not insinuating that Eth is a Nazi sympathizer.

    I rather doubt living without basic services and in constant fear of one's life while in revolt from the most powerful government in the world is anyone's fantasy. But if you can read minds now, I guess you are free to prove me wrong ...

    2 were directly involving someone confronting me...both times with weapons. The other two involved strangers...people I really didnt HAVE to get involved with. 1 of those incidents involved a very pregnant woman and her toddler being pulled out of a car by some very unsavory types. In exactly none of those incidents was there a police officer handy. I dont fault them...its not like they can be everywhere. It IS a little annpying that in the last case it took them over 20 minutes to respond...and I really dont want to imagine what might have happened.

    I think the founders would roll over in their grave and tell us all to kiss their collective asses if they saw the pathetic nature of people today and their dependence on the government to take care of them. Knowing something of their history I cant imagine their intent in a bill of individual rights that they would ever conceive that we would ever even CONSIDER disarming ourselves as a people. I believe the ability to protect SELF was 'understood'. I believe the second amendment supports the right of the individual to protect themselves, their family, their state, and ultimately country from tyranny.

    Totally understand and agree 100% -- and that is the big picture I think people aren't quite getting.

    I've been robbed at gunpoint, twice. Now I didn't own a gun at that time, nor do I think I would have had time to do anything with a gun, even if I'd had one.. give the circumstances surrounding the two incidents (I was working in a financial institution).

    It's funny though, how many people will automatically assume that if you are carrying a sidearm, that you'll suddenly be like a wild west gunslinger with an itchy trigger finger.

    I can't tell you how many times I've heard people tell me that I must be a chicken little, or that I must be scared of my own shadow because I choose to carry a firearm.

    I see it as a preventative measure, it's my right and I choose to exercise it and nothing more.
    Fool me once, shame on you.
    Fool me twice....shame on me.

    I say absolutely. I would rather die than let that happen.
    I would definately not resist violently, not that I own weapons. I would however be opposed to it if the government just up and decided to take everyone's guns. However, if the Constitution was ammended in the appropriate way, I'd be fine with it. I'd be happy about it actually. The public has no business with guns in the vast majority of cases in my opinion.

    Exactly!

    And,.. by the way,... we are all with YOU.

    We don't have any guns or any use for them either.

    Wink wink,... nudge nudge,.. say no more,...

    I really can't believe there are still people out there that are this naïve ...
