Actually... I have a couple friends who'd love to go grab a couple PKMs from Karachi, a Damen 1102 interceptor, and some body armor and go harass the Iranians... hell, didn't Trump name the Iranian Revolutionary Guard Corp a Foreign terrorist group? If memory serves me correctly, it's open season on them... :P

Though with the 2A and gun rights, it would be a very interesting thing to see the govt. start issuing letters of Marque and Reprisal to subsidize the PMC scene.

I totally don't want to start a privateering group and start harassing North Korean and Iranian shipping

Sadly, there actually is a legal precedent for that...

It involved Americans assisting the Canadian revolution of 1837.

THE PATRIOT WAR

NEVER.

FORGET.

But the actual treaty
So declaring war on Canada is a misdemeanour.

Maximum of 3 years in prison.

If we're at war... sure... go nuts.

So go ask Trump to allow you to haz a cannon.

It depends on if you're thinking with port-holes.

meh, may as well add a JATO bottle and a pair of stub-wings.
(tbh, I've discussed scaling this idea up to using an SSBN with rockets so it can become its own cruise-missile firing SLBM-sized submunitions en-route)

I think the 40mm Bofors, 20mm Oerlikons, and more .50 cals than you can shake a stick at have that covered.

While reading what is formatted as a "Letter to the Editor" type post. An Immigrant’s View of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and thinking to myself while it speaks loudly that immigrants get the idea behind the enumeration of a 2nd Amendment vs natural born citizens of this country who are clueless and or rightly reject said enumeration, I continued on to the comments and this struck me as odd.
RustyChains says:
This was something one of my friends and I started doing for folks at the office we worked at. We ended up with twenty or more folks showing up every time. I can think of only one person who didn’t purchase his own, even after a few trips, his wife wouldn’t let him.

Which was in reply to this post for context:
GunFan says:
Thank you for this article. I have started taking my team to the range as a thank you for a job well done. Many of them are from India and, like you, have limited experience with firearms. We have a great time and I look forward to each outing. I hope some of them follow your example and come to the next range day with their own firearms to share.


So I guess to those of you that are married have you ran into this issue or know of someone who has? Maybe I lucked out in the 'ol lady lottery in as much that even though she wouldn't want me to buy something and I went ahead and still bought it, she got over it real quick, but as far as I can remember she has never ever forbid me to buy something.
I can probably count on one hand where I have known someone where their spouse forbid them to buy a firearm/motorcycle/bow, etc.
Either way you look it, this too is a form of gun control.
I prefer Dangerous Freedom over peaceful slavery! Sic Semper Tyrannis!
Gun-Control is the belief that declawing the cat will protect it against other animals; also why are anti-gun people so violent?
Socialism is a philosophy of failure, the creed of ignorance, and the gospel of envy, its inherent virtue is the equal sharing of misery!
Socialism- the herpes of economic systems.

In my case that's simply grounds for not getting married in the first place. Flat-out nope'd my loins right out of that deal to spare the issue of divorce when I go and purchase a multi-thousand dollar rifle.

I can probably count on one hand where I have known someone where their spouse forbid them to buy a firearm/motorcycle/bow, etc.
Either way you look it, this too is a form of gun control.

In my case that's simply grounds for not getting married in the first place. Flat-out nope'd my loins right out of that deal to spare the issue of divorce when I go and purchase a multi-thousand dollar rifle.


I hear ya on that.
I guess I'm just confused in how a spouse would even think they can tell the other what they can and cannot buy, one isn't the boss of the other and vice versa.

Gun-Control is the belief that declawing the cat will protect it against other animals; also why are anti-gun people so violent?

An Immigrant’s View of the Right to Keep and Bear Arms and thinking to myself while it speaks loudly that immigrants get the idea behind the enumeration of a 2nd Amendment vs natural born citizens of this country who are clueless and or rightly reject said enumeration, I continued on to the comments and this struck me as odd.

This was something one of my friends and I started doing for folks at the office we worked at. We ended up with twenty or more folks showing up every time. I can think of only one person who didn’t purchase his own, even after a few trips, his wife wouldn’t let him.

Which was in reply to this post for context:

Thank you for this article. I have started taking my team to the range as a thank you for a job well done. Many of them are from India and, like you, have limited experience with firearms. We have a great time and I look forward to each outing. I hope some of them follow your example and come to the next range day with their own firearms to share.


So I guess to those of you that are married have you ran into this issue or know of someone who has? Maybe I lucked out in the 'ol lady lottery in as much that even though she wouldn't want me to buy something and I went ahead and still bought it, she got over it real quick, but as far as I can remember she has never ever forbid me to buy something.

This is why you take any potential wives shooting.

If I ever manage to get a girlfriend, one of the first things I'm going to tell her is that I like guns.
Patriotic centrist American, who is right leaning. I support the Bill of Rights. I have no loyalty to any party. Expand or die. That's how humanity works. Science fiction is the best genre. The solar system is ours for the taking. I am a male. You can't spell team without "me". I support the troops.

My ol lady can shoot and is a natural at shooting, she just isn't all that into it which is a shame. She also believes in the right to keep and bear arms, so I got that going for me, probably which is why she doesn't care one way or another when I buy firearms, all I get is the famous eye roll.
Then again, I get the same eye roll when I buy a new table saw or power miter saw, etc.
