I should start out saying that I am not in favor of banning guns. To me they are just a tool, but I have to wonder, what is the point of having those particular kinds of guns? They aren't used for hunting are they? I'm not a hunter, but it seems overkill for hunting. So what else would it be used for?



Defending yourself from a tyrannical government!

Easy there cowboy...are you going to shoot down a B2 bomber with your AR?


In any such conflict I expect the majority of the Federal Military to remember their oath to the Constitution and act in the best interests of the people.

In which case, citizens don't need firearms to protect themselves from government tyranny

This thread brings back a memory of reading something about a certain John Titor and the "shotgun wars".




Shotgun wars? Can you please refresh my memory, or if you had a relevant link with quick info that would be great, too. For some reason I'm not remembering this part of the Titor story.

Thanks.

cheaperthandirt. com no longer has links to handguns, rifles or shotguns on the site. It was up yesterday. They are completely sold out? All warehouses empty?

They probably got the call. Remember that a tyrannical government rules by threat of violence and violence itself. I want to know what was said from the other end of that call.

I think Obama is about to write a huge check his ass is not gonna be able to cash.

Ah... weird... that wasn't there for me earlier (though after some work I discovered I had a setting that filtered it) I appreciate that you pointed it out. However, now that I do see the heading I would note that it does not mention anything about temporarily suspending online sales "out of respect" for the victims. Simply that they are temporarily suspended and that policies will be reviewed.

I work in the Department of Justice. Yes its true that we've ordered major retailers to immediately withdraw semi-automatics or face repercussions. The federal government is not playing politics on this one.

You expect those brainwashed people to not follow orders?
Whatever they are told to do, will be worded in such a way that they think they are acting in the best interests of the people.

How can the department of justice do so without any laws even being passed yet. I will be going to the local shop tomorrow that only deals in tactical weapons to see what they have to say about it. I also see you posted that it is the department of justice who is having facebook accounts susspended. You guys are two for two today as far as violating constitutional rights. I have the feeling your just blowing smoke up peoples butts but we will know tomorrow when I talk to the owners of the shop and the many other shops I will be visiting.

They must be pulling them so they can re-supply the cartels. After all it is the department of injustice we are talking about here. Since when do they follow the Constitution. I think this poster who just joined today is full of BS. I plan to visit over a dozen shops tomorrow to get the truth from the owners. So we will see.

Haha - you're right about that...cheaper than dirt is not necessarily so - case in point: them gouging people for $60 magazines today

I believe you are right about the guns @ Cheaper than Dirt having been sold. The place was packed & I saw more than 1 person picking up a new firearm (actually a guy next to me bought a really nice FN FS2000 while I was there) & I think there were still some of the more expensive ARs on the wall there if I remember correctly.

Looks like all the gun nuts are sitting idly buy..at the most critical moment.

It is easy to spout out "from my cold dead hands" when you are an overweight older American glued to the TV (typical gun owner), it is another thing entirely to defend your rights. The resistance has been pacified. To the typical gun nut, the threat of losing their career, their cars and houses, their freedom to enjoy vast amounts of entertainment is greater than the threat of losing their right to own guns.

And some and sit and type while other seek and find what is to come news.yahoo.com... "know your opponent" is not just an expression. from the link

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congressional gun rights supporters showed an increased willingness Tuesday to consider new legislation to control firearms in the aftermath of the Connecticut school shootings — provided it also addresses mental health issues and the impact of violent video games.

A former co-chairman of the Congressional Sportsmen's Caucus, Democratic Rep. Mike Thompson, D-Calif., and 10-term House Republican Jack Kingston — a Georgia lawmaker elected with strong National Rifle Association backing — were the latest to join the call to consider gun control as part of a comprehensive, anti-violence effort next year.
do you think they will still be there when their time comes for re-election? and in case some missed thisprovided it also addresses mental health issues and the impact of violent video games.DO i see "obama care" and "gaming ban" on the wish list?
