Thanks for replying Matt!
Although I am not sure if you actually answered my questions? Maybe you did.
but in that situation, I'd be getting ready to greet them while flying the red flag.
So you are saying, in this situation, you would want a firearm, right?

Whats your point? I am a very successful game hunter who has never shot another hunter because I "thought he looked tasty". i am not a murderer or let alone a cannibal. Really, what even perversed you to suggest anyone would do this? Not normal logic IMO.

A hypothetical question for our European and Aussie friends...
Do you regret giving up your right to own firearms?.... in the event of a US invasion? (or another)
If you were invaded by an opposing military force. And these men were walking around shooting your neighbors. Would you be entirely comfortable with the fact that the only ones on your side with firearms would be your own military? In this hypothetical event, would you not want a firearm while you are trying to protect your family and friends?

Blackops thanks for correcting this.
What Australians know of Americans is only what they see on tv and on movies and automatically assume everything there is bad.
We have been indoctrinated not to look at things from all angles. 20-30 years ago Australians were smart now the media are dumbing them down.
speak for yourself
i have been to america a few times and have seen with my own eyes that things there are bad.
and Op.... there goes american arrogance again thinking we are 'jealous' of you for the right to own arms....are you kidding!
no-one i know owns a firearm and no one i know would want to own a firearm.
Americans tend to be alittle paranoid and seem to have too much fear instilled in them sadly. To think if your guns laws are changed that you’ll loose total rights as citizens....please.
as someone has said....its people who kill people not the guns so maybe you should be pushing for a better health system to help the demented people who kill on your streets everyday rather than gun rights.
you will have a new president in a few weeks time and no you wont have to go hunt your own food and no people wont be randomly shooting in the streets... you watch waaaaay to much t.v
and by the way.... its not like there is not a gun in sight in australia. certain guns are available with a license.

But if one chooses to look for a 'target' he will more than likely bypass Mr. Joe and look for Mr. PO in ammo. It's a natural law that if one walks and talks like a duck he will be treated like a duck....and you have no wings.
I wish we could all join hands and sing Hallelluyahh..though there is a much darker horse operating behind the scenes than of most are unaware. If you want to know more...see prior posts here on ATS. I'm here for good 'reason' though no need to rehash on this thread. Off topic.
Now as far as the 'other' hunting methods you mention; you can throw rocks and spears at the critters....perhaps make pitfalls with spikes and be 'creative' otherwise though if you see me walking with a shotgun/rifle...I guarantee you I'll be seen as your new friend.

No, in that situation, I'd probably be more prepared to straight-up surrender than kill someone for a lost cause. .

I hear there is an epidemic of stabbings in the UK.
Correct me if I am wrong but, If the Chav that was coming to cut you saw you pull out a 45, would he change his mind about making you the next stabbing victim?
