" I dont live in America,I live in the UK"

alrighty then

Which doesn't invalidate the argument.

I know it doesn't invalidate my argument.

"if you want to control a nation, take away their arms"-hitler

history repeats itself, and if you think the american dream will last you are a fool. our economy wont last another 10 years.

if you are so willing to give up guns, so be it, i have mine

If we don't even know if would affect him why are we even fighting

I'm stating my facts, simple as that. There is a far better chance at Manhattan harming or even killing Kal than there is of Kal doing anything to Manhattan.

yup

i am not fearful of the unknown. im not saying that you should be paranoid 24/7, you totally missed the point, what im saying is if you have the means to protect yourself, PROTECT YOURSELF. if some murderer with a gun came into my house and i just watched as he killed my entire family and me because "shit happens" what kind of apathetic prick would i be? having a gun can PREVENT people from robbing you and it can PREVENT the government from stepping all over you.

mr.decepticon seems to think guns are useless and it sounded like you agreed with him. and i never said you can get out of every situation by having a gun,but you can prevent most.

I didn't miss the point at all. If you buy a gun for protection that means you are expecting to have to protect yourself. That sounds like fear to me. If i'm not afraid that someone is going to rob or try to kill me then I don't carry a gun. We live in a country where people kill police, what makes you think that you are safe if you carry a gun? Law Enforcement isn't even safe and they carry guns on their person while on patrol at all times. You really think that if the government wants to do something to you, you can stop it because you have a gun? Are you out of your damn mind? You can't prevent most situations by having a gun because too many criminals have guns and far more violent crimes are committed with guns then are prevented with them.

no im expecting a "sh!t happens" moment. it doesnt have to be for me. a woman can get brutally beaten by 5 men, seems like a gun will come in handy there. its a protection plan.

it doesnt matter if you are afriad or not, "sh!t happens" right? we live in a country where police beat, kill, and jail some men and women because they dont like who they are or what they are doing. it goes both ways. some police officers are good but others abuse their powers to the fullest. also that is a faulty point. police officers get gunned down on the job because criminals dont want to get caught and/or. people dont just kill police officers for shts and giggles, thats stupid.

if the government wanted to do something to me specifically i would die either way, im out manned. if the government wanted to do something to a town and other towns people had heavy artillery then it would be a bit more fair than the "lay and pray" tactic you clearly favor. might even get some women and children out of town before bombs rained down.

your logic here is cant beat em give up and accept your fate. that is stupid and selfish. if you have family memeber you wouldn't own a gun because you aren't afraid to die? if a robber came in and beat your wife to death, oh well? guns are not just to protect yourself it is to protect the ones you love and if you ask me if im afraid to see my love ones die i would say yes

i love how people can so blatantly accept their fates if the worst did happen. that attitude of "you cant change anything, just deal with it" is exactly why nothing will ever change.

you are basicly saying that guns are useless because you are going to get shot/robbed if you are unlucky enough to get in the situation so just deal with it. is that what you will tell your kids? if a armed robbers/murderer comes into your house tough luck?

this apathy is pathetic.

I love how you can be so fearful of the unknown. I find THAT pathetic. I'm not afraid anyone will attack me,rob me or otherwise. If it happens it happens. That's life. Having a gun doesn't automatically keep people from robbing you or killing you and it definitely won't save you from the American government. I never said that guns were useless, i'm just saying I find it funny the situations that people think they can get out of my simply having a gun.

so you are saying if it did happen lay down and let the government bend us over the table?

nah, ill rather fight

also i have no idea where you live but some of us needs weapons to protect us from the robberies and murders that happen everyday.so yes some people do need weapons to feel secure. we cant all live in candy land

I love how people think there's something they can do if the government wanted them dead. I also love how people think they can do something about robbers and murderers. Places where people like that exist in mass numbers shoot first ask questions later. Unless you can read minds you're going to get shot.

The only purpose for such weapons is to rob banks and such. If you think you can use a machine gun to take on the tyrants in the US Government / Military guess what? Drones. Smart missles. Tanks. Machins guns aren't gonna help either way. Why is it so important to have machine guns? What legitimate purpose do they serve?

extra protection. if the military goes sour and turns on us its better to fight with assault weapons than a pistol.

That wont happen and lets say that it did,the military have tanks drones smart missiles,machine guns,aircraft.Everybody owning assault rifles would make no difference,you would be dead either way.

But by not banning them brings a sense of safety and protection for families that own them.

You can feel safe with a handgun. You don't need an assault rifle.

You can feel safe without guns at all.You dont need a handgun either.

so you are saying if it did happen lay down and let the government bend us over the table?

nah, ill rather fight

You wouldn't be able to fight back.But it would never happen anyway.So owning an assault weapon for that reason is double pointless.

history repeats itself.

if you honestly think this blissful american lifestyle will last, you are kidding yourself.
