So I am a gun owner but can't understand why you need a ak47 or m16 to "DEFEND" yourself. Where do you live south central LA? And even then, I would hope most of us are a better shot then some thug and could take care of business. Up here in Vt almost every one owns a gun so when you go to rob someones house you better have backup.
I Know these are very fun (and expensive) guns to own and fire, but should every goober be able to have one? I think that's how all these guns end up in the wrong hands to begin with.
We should all be able to have what under the 2nd? Ak's? Napalm? Rocket launchers? Surface to air missiles? Mini Nukes? Anything?
I just don't know where to draw the line.
I'm not involved in politics but I do know America has been under the control of the government for longer than most of us have been alive. Rep. or Dem. there all the same. They want more power and lust it.
If the GOV comes for you and they really want you AK or Napalm will NOT stop them. Ask David Koresh. He sold and bought a lot of guns and got the attention of the ATF and then the FBI.
The way to solve the problem is stop finding groups to hate and want to kill in During the "CALL TO ARMS?" Who will we be fighting the GOV. ? well that's the military and other Americans that we all have friends in.
The mexicans? arabs? blacks? muslims? jews?
who IS the enemy.
I think the truth is our ignorance as a whole as a species is the enemy.
lets just have some guns to kill food and for sport. That's what their real purpose should be in a smarter world.
