But surely if you guys didn't have access to these weapons, there would be far fewer gun related incidents or deaths in the States? Ok, i know the
majority of these are due to ignorant people either mis-using them or leaving them lying around for kids to pick up etc, but if there was a gun ban,
surely there would a better way to "defend your liberty" Surely it would be in everybodys best interests to take these weapons off the public
market. Im not saying you dont have a right to protect yourselves, but dont other people have the right to be protected "from" these? I may seem
very biased or ignorant with regard to the whole gun issue, but thats probably because i have never had access to such weapons or the need for one to
protect myself. I feel confident in saying that if ever a time came when i did need to protect myself or my loved ones, i could fashion a lethal
weapon/device from materials in my garage, but would never have it prepared..."just in case"
The only purpose for banning these weapons would be to prevent the law abiding citizen from having them. Regardless to the fact we see so much
criminal activity, the number of law abiding citizens outnumber the criminals. Criminals will still get the weapons on the black market.
Eventually, steps will be taken to revoke our last rights that are guaranteed under the
Constitution of the United States
, and when that happens, how are we going to defend
ourselves against the military that is now usable on US soil? Roll over and play dead? I don't think so.
And I don't want to hear anything about being paranoid. That is the most common response from ignorant people. If what I just said was not a
distinct possibility that the government has considered, then why did the government take steps to make sure they could use the military on US soil,
going against Posse Comitatus.
The USA Patriot Act enables the definition(s) of terrorism (including domestic), thus enabling the guidelines set forth in the Military Commissions
It's all been put in place. It's just a matter of time.
