Just to clarify.

The RIGHT to self protection comes from "God".

If you dont believe in "God", it is an inherent or naturally occurring right to every human being on this planet.

Government does not grant us rights.


You absolutely have the right to self-protection. In my opinion you don't need a gun to do that. Use your brain not a gun.

The State Courts are the only establishment that can hand out a death sentence after a conviction. You don't have the right to take life.

Except we won't even be able to use harsh language because that's not "PC."

However, makes the point that most pro-legal ownership people have. When gun ownership is illegal, only those willing to break the law will have guns. And guess who lived through that fight? The ones who broke the orders and stayed armed.

These are direct statistics, not polls.

Here you have it from your own.

Murders Soar in UK!

If we do a year by year comparison it is even worse.

the illusion of the monopoly of force by the state alone is absurd.

Never, especially here where we hashed it out so well.

Nope

"Love always trumps hate"

what magical utopia dream world do you live in?

No our country is a place where we don't treat people who haven't committed any crimes as criminals.

Next is the language police and bans on 1st amendment rights

Since you don't READ links.. BOB OWENS:Let me explain, gun grabbers, how your confiscatory fantasy plays out. Let us imagine for a moment that a sweeping gun control bill similar to the one currently suggested is passed by the House and Senate, and signed into law by a contemptuous President.

Perhaps 50-100 million firearms currently owned by law-abiding citizens will become contraband with the stroke of a pen. Citizens will either register their firearms, or turn them in to agents of the federal government, or risk becoming criminals themselves. Faced with this choice, millions will indeed register their arms. Perhaps as many will claim they’ve sold their arms, or had them stolen. Suppose that as many as 200-250 million weapons of other types will go unregistered.

Tens of millions of Americans will refuse to comply with an order that is clearly a violation of the explicit intent of the Second Amendment. Among the most ardent opposing these measures will be military veterans, active duty servicemen, and local law enforcement officers. Many of these individuals will refuse to carry out what they view as Constitutionally illegal orders. Perhaps 40-50 million citizens will view such a law as treason. Perhaps ten percent of those, 4-5 million, would support a rebellion in some way, and maybe 40,000-100,000 Americans will form small independently-functioning active resistance cells, or become lone-wolves.

They will be leaderless, stateless, difficult to track, and considering the number of military veterans that would likely be among their number, extremely skilled at sabotage, assassination, and ambush.

After a number of carefully-planned, highly-publicized, and successful raids by the government, one or more will invariably end “badly.” Whether innocents are gunned down, a city block is burned to ash, or especially fierce resistance leads to a disastrously failed raid doesn’t particularly matter. What matters is that when illusion of the government’s invincibility and infallibility is broken, the hunters will become the hunted.

Unnamed citizens and federal agents will be the first to die, and they will die by the dozens and maybe hundreds, but famous politicians will soon join them in a spate of revenge killings, many of which will go unsolved.

Ironically, while the gun grab was intended to keep citizens from preserving their liberties with medium-powered weapons, it completely ignored the longer-ranged rifles perfect for shooting at ranges far beyond what a security detail can protect, and suppressed .22LR weapons proven deadly in urban sniping in Europe and Asia.

While the Secret Service will be able to protect the President in the White House, he will not dare leave his gilded cage except in carefully controlled circumstances. Even then he will be forced to move like a criminal. He will never be seen outdoors in public again. Not in this country.

The 535 members of the House and Senate in both parties that allowed such a law to pass would largely be on their own; the Secret Service is too small to protect all of them and their families, the Capitol Police too unskilled, and competent private security not particularly interested in working against their own best interests at any price. The elites will be steadily whittled down, and if they can not be reached directly, the targets will become their staffers, spouses, children, and grandchildren. Grandstanding media figures loyal to the regime would die in droves, executed as enemies of the Republic.

You can expect congressional staffs to disintegrate with just a few shootings, and expect elected officials themselves to resign well before a quarter of their number are eliminated, leaving us with a boxed-in executive, his cabinet loyalists trapped in the same win, die, or flee the country circumstance, military regime loyalists, and whatever State Governors who desire to risk their necks as well.

Here, the President will doubtlessly order the activation of National Guard units and the regular military to impose martial law, setting the largest and most powerful military in the world against its own people. Unfortunately, the tighter the President clinches his tyrannical fist, the more rebels he makes.

Military commands and federal agencies will be whittled down as servicemen and agents will desert or defect. Some may leave as individuals, others may join the Rebellion in squad and larger-sized units with all their weapons, tactics, skills, and insider intelligence. The regime will be unable to trust its own people, and because they cannot trust them, they will lose more in a vicious cycle of collapse.

Some of these defectors will be true “operators,” with the skills and background to turn ragtag militia cells into the kind of forces that decimate loyalist troops, allowing them no rest and no respite, striking them when they are away from their most potent weapons. Military vehicles are formidable, but they are thirsty beasts, in terms of fuel, ammo, time, and maintenance. Tanks and bombers are formidable only when they have gas, guns, and can be maintained. In a war without a front, logistics are incredibly easy to destroy, and mechanics and supply clerks are not particularly adept at defending themselves.

Eventually, the government will turn upon itself. The President will be captured or perhaps killed by his own protectors. A dictatorship will form in the vacuum.

If we’re lucky, the United States of America, or whatever amalgam results, will again try to rebuild. If we’re very lucky, the victors will reinstate the Constitution as the law of the land. Just as likely though, we’ll face fractious civil wars fought over issues we’ve not begun to fathom, and a much diminished state or states will result, perhaps guided by foreign interests.

It will not be pretty. There will be no “winners,” and perhaps hundreds of thousands to millions of dead.

Yet, this is the future we face if the power-mad among us are not soundly defeated at the ballot box before they affect more “change” than we, the People, are willing to surrender to would-be tyrants.

Actually in our current Police State. The ladies and boy's in blue treat all suspects as guilty perps first and foremost.

I agree that 'love trumps hate' is a fantastic ideal. It's also the best strategy to ensure it never becomes a reality.

Wow...you are SO cool. You really are a MAN. Gun by your side, in case you have to run? Or take down some terrorists?

I just cant get over how utterly manly and cool you are. Hopefully, you wont shoot anyone innocent one day eh by mistake. Their mistake though if it happens, they should have been armed so they could defend themselves


yep. Sarcasm. The fact you think that that is a positive thing is quite ridiculous

This entire OP is nonsensical trolling.

"Civilized society"? Are you delusional?

Show me proof of that.

Then tell me how I defend myself against guns without guns.

Except they don't. Funny how I've seen police with their open carry weapons and citizens with their open carry weapons in my state and no one blinks an eye on either side because everyone was too busy getting their Big Qs filled and through the register and on about their business. Oh, and not everyone was one ethnicity either.
