Your post was very thoughtful but I must suggest that (FOR ME) it’s not just about “surviving” this mess we’re in. It’s also important to
survive intact as a nation with all of our freedoms.
Is it really living if your liberty has been stripped? I understand society has rules, and I like that, but I think the 2nd amendment is fundamental
to preserving all of our other rights in America.
What say you?
Umm, there is a major flaw in logic here.
Sure, the second amendment is fundamental to preserving our rights as Americans, but what the hell does that have to do with assault rifles and semi
RPG's are arms, as are precision guided munitions and landmines. Do you have an exclusive right to those? Were your liberties stripped when the
gov't made it illegal for you to store C4 in your basement?
There is a major problem with the logic of extending laws that were designed for muskets and bayonets, and applying them into any damn thing that you
please. If this law is not applicable for hand grenades, why should it be applicable for semi-autos?
The REASON hand grenades are illegal after all, is that they are caustic, and they have NO PLACE among civilians, in cities, in suburbs, on streets
and in homes. In fact, extending this logic, any weapon that is capable of conveniently ending 30 lives in a matter of minutes is just as caustic,
and just as unsuited for civilian life.
Semi-autos and assault rifles are TOOLS OF WAR. They have NO PLACE among civilization, and whatever sick and obsolete twist of law that got them here
in the first place needs to be IMMEDIATELY AMENDED. There is absolutely no legitimate use for them outside the theatre of war.
Unless you're living in Afghanistan, you shouldn't have them in your house, neither should I, and neither should the damn police for that matter.
Because, regardless of the owner, regardless of how they are stored, they are and always will be a LEGITIMATE AND EXIGENT DANGER TO THE COMMUNITY.
