Environmentalists are going to kill us all anyway.
also, you are a perfect example of why the right to freedom of speech should be heavily regulated, just because you have a right doesn’t make it righteous.

The whole argument against the right to bare arms is idiotic at best.
Drugs are illegal yet can be obtained on just about any street corner in the US, you think outlawing guns would be any different? than you're just naive.

Thanks Advantage for sharing so personal a story. However, people like the OP have never had the need to really ask themselves these important questions - until now.
Look at the unrest going on overseas now. The UK and Greek protesters are about to walk right into 1959 Civil Rights Movement tactics and they will be totally defenseless. They haven't had their governments turn on them before now, and soon, people like Kevinunknown will be screaming "how do I get a gun?"
It is unfortunate that they will find out the hard way, but that's what soft behinds are for, as my dad use to say.

Well, there are no guarantees in life...Just odds. Odds are, if you're adequately armed, no one is going to want to risk taking you on..If you're not adequately armed, some one might want to take what you've got, and they'll succeed. It's the reason I took martial arts..but when I grew up, and realized I wasn't bullet proof, I bought a gun...
I live by that statement every single day. Have you ever lived in the Murder Capitol of the World?
I did. I watched people get robbed at bus stops, killed for a dollar. I had driven to my second job through gun fire! Each time all I had to do was flash and it was over. Repeat: OVER!
Yes, if the Palestinians would stand up for themselves there will be more blood, but there would be more respect too! Why? Because a man has no respect for a dog they can claim rabid and shoot it dead in the street. That's right I said it! Cowards kill those who are defenseless!
Defend yourself and watch the tide turn and stop hiding behind the "bully" stereotyping. No bully stops unless you stop them. Hell, use a cupcake if you must, but grow some balls!
