How did we go 24 pages w/o a gun control debate?

Postby Brogavia » Tue Jun 09, 2009 7:59 pm

This is by far the most unlikely thing that has ever happened.

NSG, without its a gun control debate? Its madness I tell you!.

But really, where do you stand on Victim disarmarment aka gun control?

Personally, I believe that there are no constitutionally allowable restrictions on a citizens right to own a firearm.

Depends, I would say the government has no right to take your guns away....

However if your arsenal starts to out step the US military, then there are problems...

No, there's not.

After all, the whole point of civilian ownership of weapons is to ensure the populace can mount an effective revolt against government should it ever become necessary.

How about if you are more heavily armed then the Vatican Guards...
The Earth is a very small stage in a vast cosmic arena. Think of the rivers of blood spilled by all those generals and emperors so that, in glory and triumph, they could become the momentary masters of a fraction of a dot. Think of the endless cruelties visited by the inhabitants of one corner of this pixel on the scarcely distinguishable inhabitants of some other corner, how frequent their misunderstandings, how eager they are to kill one another, how fervent their hatreds.- Carl Sagan

Which might have been the case up to, say, the Civil War. Now-a-days, not even close.

I thought it was because they were compensating for something.

I like my reasoning better.

No, no, still true. In order to ensure liberty, we've got to be able to fight back against the state.

Or maybe its because so many criminals are let out of prision because they have been "rehabilitated".

Which everyone knows is street slang for being worse than when they went in.

I'm still waiting for my pistol permit paperwork, and I already have a rifle (AR15). Once I get a pistol, it will be used for the same activity I use the rifle for (target shooting). However, I won't begrudge someone the right to own a firearm for hunting or self defense purposes.
Any accident you can walk away from is one I can laugh at.
