I like my guns. I want to keep my guns. However, I don't own uzi's or assault weapons because I have no plans of taking over a small government or
shooting down a bunch of people. I don't need a gun like that. I have no use for it. I have guns for hunting, for protection, even for target
practice because I enjoy shooting them. The guns I own are tools, not weapons. I don't need a weapon because I'm not going to use a gun in an
argument or to go after someone I don't like.
That's the problem. People want bigger and better guns, they want guns that make them look big and bad. They want guns that are bigger than the other
person's gun. They'd have rocket launchers if they could get them, heck some people do have them. They don't need them.
#1 you're more likely to kill yourself than someone who was "attacking you"
#2 you are no match for the military of the US. If they take over, they will win. They tookout Saddam who had a standing army, tanks, helicopters and
more weapons than you could ever own.
#3 if those guns are around, they ARE going to fall into the wrong hands. If they are available to you and me, they're definitely available to
criminals. There are guns available to criminals that we could never get ourselves.
Those criminals don't ban together in the hundreds and go after a lone little family at the end of a culdesac. If they did, it wouldn't matter how
many guns you have, they would win.
The only reason anyone wants guns of that nature is to look big and bad or to do something illegal. There are no other reasons. If the government
wants to put a ban on those types of weapons for the greater good, fine. They can. Some will say "well that will just lead to them banning other guns
until they take them all". No, it won't. It has to be passed. This bill won't even be passed. A compromised bill might, but it will be extremely
compromised. Also, anyone who votes for any bill that is passed will be voted out of office in the next election and it will be overturned. The
American people don't go for things like that.
This is nothing but a way to distract our attention from other things. I say let them have at it. We'll clean the mess up at the voting booth and
overturn it. It really is as simple as that.
