That's nice, Ron. I only posted about my dream because this thread is about guns, and I am wondering why I had this dream when I hate guns.
ron is killing it.
You had to practice in order to hit a tree with a shotgun?
I don't really know a whole lot about guns. And it was a dream.
Guns are a symbol of power in your dreams, so you feeling comfort and control with the gun in your parent's backyard is a good thing.
Gunz, but the dream felt a bit menacing like I was not sure why I was using the gun but I feel like I needed it for some reason, like I was wielding a power I was not sure I could control.
I would assume that speaks to you and with all the press we can't avoid having guns on our minds.
Are you one of those drooling morons who thinks all opinions are equally valid regardless? The post I was responding to was talking about fighting back against FEMA. This is moral retardation attempting to influence public policy. And I said as much.
There are others here that I also disagree with (mountmccabe, chairmanmeow, a few others) on the gun issue but who at least have logic behind their positions. I don't tell them to fuck off. Well, not on this topic anyway.
Let's look at countries where guns are/were completely banned:
Soviet Russia under Stalin
Modern day Venezuela.
after witnessing the way people have been treated in this country from kent state to g20 to ows, i do think we need guns to protect ourselves from our government. and maybe the fema camps was an oversimplification, but it's one of billions of reasons why people should be able to own firearms.
as for the comment about semi automatic rifles and how people shouldn't own them because their only purpose is killing people, semi-automatic "assault" rifles were used in less that a third of the homicides last year than where "hands and feet" was listed as the murder weapon. their purpose is going out to the middle of the desert and shooting shit, military use, or home defense. no one goes on shooting sprees with semi automatics, violent crimes are committed by knives and handguns.
The United Kingdom (Only antique weapons)
Australia (not a COMPLETE ban, but as good as)
Japan (only antique weapons)
And the following have laws strict enough to keep guns out of most everyone's hands:
Guess which countries have similar ownership laws as the United States? South Africa, North Korea, Yemen and many countries based on Sharia law, where weapon ownership is considered a divine right.
And if the intent of ownership of semi-autos is going to the middle of the desert, why does anyone on the east coast, south, midwest or pacific northwest own them? I k now I'm arguing with someone who has probably been shot in the frontal lobe a few times and no longer understands even basic logic or reasoning, but jesus christ, you can't be this dense, can you?
I think I will buy a gun just so the fuck of it ..................cr******
Plus that was clearly not the intention of the founding fathers in drafting the Second Amendment. They envisioned the US not having a standing military, based around the concern that a standing military could become the police arm of a tyrannical state. Instead, each citizen was expected to be ready, at a moment's notice, to join up to a militia to protect the greater good (Adams unsuccessfully fought to include the language, "but no person religiously scrupulous of bearing arms shall be compelled to render military service in person," at the end of the amendment. That would have killed all these idiotic misinterpretations, tell you what.) However, that hasn't really been a possibility in the modern world for a multitude of reasons. We have a standing military, and we don't need a militia of morons.
You're a butt Gunz.... just saying ....cr***
the truth is, it takes the police a lot longer to respond to an emergency than it does for a man with a shotgun in the back of his car. so you can talk shit, insult me and say that i'm illogical because you don't agree with my views without coming up with any logical arguments of your own (the amount of ad hominem used in your posts makes it appalingly obvious that you have never even taken a college philosophy class), and maybe the other brainwashed mainstream media worshippers here will love you for it, but it won't make you right.
the sad truth is that we had to fight against our government because they didn't represent our best interests back in 1776. we may have to do the same soon. iceland pulled it off recently with pots and pans, however, iceland doesn't have the crazy military strength the US does. our government is going to keep fucking us just like theirs did, and either we can fight back or keep taking it in the ass.
It's sort of surprising to see how many people are satisfied being treated like second rate citizens. California is much larger in population and area than some countries in the world, and we clearly don't agree with everything the Federal government tries to enforce. I could easily see us separating from the union if certain laws go into effect. I could just as easily see people embracing their slavery being too afraid to stand up for their rights. Limiting yourself is a part of perfecting your being, but limiting your people just keeps them submissive and stupid. Why would your country want to keep you submissive and stupid, more interested in defaming other political parties than in effectively challenging the limitations on our so-called freedoms? Sometimes the grease the squeaky wheel gets is an unmarked grave for standing up for your rights, but red versus blue is clearly the worst possible way to keep your people interested in government. It's not a game. It's your poverty. It's your right to protect yourself in case of invasion of home or country, in case you have to fend off your own government. That's a major part of the original drafting of the constitution. Misconduct is a regular fixture in every government.
Everybody's right, you're dumb.
all i see in this thread are two pro gun people making rational arguments, one anti gun guy calling the other two names because he can't come up with any ideas of his own or facts to back them up, and two people kissing the anti gun guys ass because the commercial on tv with the celebrities said that guns are bad.
I am none of your examples..... been around a while and fucking guns suck...... been in a war, lost my friends, fuck guns.......I don't have to make an argument......cr****
you think i'm wrong about this? i'm fully capable of a rational debate. this is not one. a rational debate is an argument followed by a rebuttal, not an argument followed by :
