Let see how this work. You got to store and by a rifle with ammo. Then bunch of a solders are showing up and demand you to go with them. You live in a
normal house and have wife and kids with you in that house. You decided to refuse to go and start firing with your rifle. The solders return fire and
you and your family are dead.
This situation bears no context to reality in any way. If the soldiers are demanding that you go with them, then it is because they are under orders
to do so, in which case, most of us are already screwed, because martial law has been enacted. Once you decide to open fire on a group of soldiers,
they are justified to return fire. This is a conscious decision made by the person holding the firearm.
Question #1: Who give to you a right to decide of life of your wife and kids. Did you ask them before you open a fire?
If I feel that someone is threatening to take my freedom away from me without due process of law, or is attempting to put me into a "FEMA" or
concentration camp, then I would rather die than go willingly to my own death, or to let any harm come to my family.
#2: Did you really think at that moment that you can defend their life's?.
The brave one will exit the house and draw attention to himself so his family could escape(small chance but it is a chance). You could pay for that
with your life, but you will give to your family a chance to live.
Where would the family escape to? the forest? How could I, as a man, run out into open gunfire, as you are suggesting, and leave my family to fend for
themselves, when I could fight for my freedom like any true brave american should. Either way, I run the risk of losing my life, but if it's to be at
the hands of an oppressive regime, then by God, I will not go alone.
Now imagine another scenario: You are( and your family) living in a mountains. You build a house inside a mountain, Not too low and not at the
top. You have a food supply and water to last for at least 5 years. You have a mine field surrounding that mountain and heavy gun machine. Few missile
to take a planes down. The whole complex is good enough to sustain even a nuke blast,
Noe the solders are coming to get you and you respond. They run for their life's.
You have a chance to defend your and your family life`s.
That would be a smart.
Who's going to build this immense fortress in the mountains.... you? I dare say that the situation you have proposed is very grand on a logistical
scale. How many people do you know that can just up and carve out a house in a mountain, and further more, arm it with missiles capable of shooting
planes out of the sky, and mines all around the mountain?
Before you suggest a situation, at least apply some common sense to it.
As I said before - there it is a difference between being brave and being stupid.
With one are you?
Sport hunting - what it is a sport have to do with?. You get a rifle with a scope and shut an animal from a distance without any chance that any harm
can be done to yourself. In my book - that it is not a sport - it is a "chicken #" game. Real man will chase that animal on foot and combat "hand
While I do agree with you that hunting animals should be done without firearms in order to be called "sport", i prefer archery myself, as it is much
more challenging. Secondly, we aren't cavemen. fighting animals with our bare hands? I'll let you do it first. Let me know how that works out for ya
I guess that will be too much for most of those "hunters" as they are too fat to make 20 yards.
you make too many assumptions, and draw illogical conclusions based on those assumptions.
