OK, ive been lurking for a very long time and gun control is something that is close to my heart. The guys that dont even live in america who are
posting anti gun propaganda on this post, thats fine by me if you want to express your opinion. I live in the USA and you know what, this is a free
country and people are entitled to an opinion (even though you are not from the USA, i will hear it anyway, your welcome) .
Now back to gun laws. Im in the military and am a veteren of the recent wars. Im not gonna get into a topic about reasons for the wars so dont
start it here. I serve my country because i believe in the constitution, and i beleive in a persons freedom to have a choice. I own ak47s, ar15s
handguns and all kinds of weapons (all legal). You know why? Because it is my right as a citizen of the USA. So all you folks out there that keep
saying, why must people own the scary guns, hunting guns are ok but why the military style scary ones. Well i already gave you the answer. Because it
is my right to own them or not.
And another thing. You people who are scared that the government will crack down and use the military to take your weapons. I got news for you.
The US military are also citizens and a large majority of them like their rights just as much as the next guy, so do you think they are gonna disarm
America when that means disarming themselves? Even if the US army tried, each state has a national guard and if it came to a cival war type scenario
the National guard will more than likely be for the state and not the government. And there may be fewer individuals in the National Guard but the
armories are way more wide spread and common than the us army bases, not to mention "citizen soldiers" who are also civilians and would be a
nightmare for any type of group that thinks they would come into towns and start disarming (think of the movie the patriot). You also have to throw in
all the old vets who are no longer in the military but im willing to bet they will fight before they are disarmed.
Im sure there are some other miltary out there who agree with me. I would rather go to Afghanistan than to start disarming people in podunk
America. So lets be realistic. We have no clue what is going to happen in the future so quit freakin out about it. You can always prepare for the
worst by buying one good rifle and lots of ammo.
