Hahahaha we used to just catch them and break their necks?
Next it will be handgrenades?
Maybe you don't understand. Many of us do in fact have hand grenades and full auto machine guns. They are perfectly legal in America. You must acquire
them on a Form 4 and pay the relevant tax stamp etc.. Please note that since 1934 only 1 person has been murdered with an NFA registered title II
firearm, and this was done by a law enforcement officer.
Dont confuse yourself we have f-16's, Migs, Tanks you name it we got it!
There are hundreds of millions of semi auto assault rifles in America and ten times that amount exist as demilled parts kits which are in fact full
auto machine guns etc.. Your last assault rifle ban just saw the manufactures who were affected cutting their guns to meet ATF requirements, and
sending in ften times as many to maintain the same profit margins. Most 80%+ came in country with full auto fire control components. Where there is a
market you will have a supply be it black or regulated.
I don't think you realize just how well armed the American populous is. The American people constitute the largest armed force in the world! If I were
on the gun control side of the issue I think I would tread pretty lightly!
By limiting the lawful gun owners rights you just ensure that only criminals will have access to these weapons! Bad idea in my book. Plus, try as you
might there is no denying that 200 million+ died in the 20th century alone due to tyrannical government. Statistically less than 500 people per year
die in the US from assault rifles.
In America our highest offices and our main stream media outlets are for sale to the highest bidder! Our goverment sponsors the death of hundreds if
not thousands of children in Syria today. Kills children and other inocents with drones daily. Sponsored the killing of hundreds of thousands in Iraq
and beyond (Some say one million+ in Iraq alone!). Kills Americans without trial or any type of due process.
White House wins fight to keep assassinations of Americans secret.
Nazi Germany, Stalinist Russia, Mao’s China, Pol Pot’s Cambodia, etc, all contained disarmed populations. The guns were gone, and as a result
millions upon millions died!
The Patriot Acts, the FISA domestic spy bill, the bailouts of corrupt international banks, attempts at CISPA and SOPA, actions like the NDAA
authorizing the treatment of U.S. citizens as “enemy combatants” without rights to due process; all paint a picture so clear only a one-celled
amoeba (or your average suburban yuppie) would not see it. You and I, and everyone else for that matter, have been designated potential targets of the
Now is no time to surrender our arms! If there is even the slightest chance of history repeating itsself here!
Gun free zones are targeted because they are defenseless, just like and unarmed populous can be targeted!
What we surrender could well be our very existence or that of our descendants! Gun control should be a state ballot issue not a federal government
issue! If you want to void the 2nd then let the people vote on a state by state basis! This is one issue that the representatives should butt out
You think it is all just too farfetched? So did all of 1930's Europe.
I keep seeing folks from the UK saying how we should be disarmed, but was it not just 50 or so years ago since we had to come and save you guys from
the gas chambers? Did you step up when Stalin was sending 50 million+ to the gulags? I understand that laws exist that prevent the open discussion of
Nazi stuff in the UK, but I hope you are aware that what helped to turn the tide in Poland were small bands of armed resistance. Wihtout those who
stood their ground you would be speaking German today!
Does it trouble you to know that I can leagally own a .50 Browning Machine Gun? There is a good chance that someone has one pretty much right next
door to you now.
Remember this famous saying and take it to heart!
When the people fear the government, there is tyranny. When the government fears the people, there is liberty.
