I believe you've missed my point - the entire reason that the gun even exists is for killing, or at best to maim - either way, its intent is to cause harm. How is that a good thing?
You're right, it is for harming/killing. If someone breaks into my home, you better believe I'm going to do my best to protect my family. If some tyrannical government turns on its citizens, you better believe I'll do my best to protect my family.

How that benefits us as a human race is beyond me - someday we'll look back on the 18-21 century and think "remember when everyone had guns and we used to kill each other all the time - god, we were stupid back then"...


I hope you're right about that. I think there are a few of us who are advanced beyond our violent species.

Unfortunately, I think it will be way beyond the 21st century before the human race as a whole evolves beyond the need for violence -- if ever. Maybe there's hope for the 31st century?
We live in the 21st century where violence happens. It's better to be prepared for it than not, imo. And though I own weapons, I'm not violent with them, but responsible. That can change in a heartbeat though if me, my family, or friend is threatened.

There are many more of us than there are of them. Why wouldn't that be a deterrent?

What's Globalsit? I live in America - Texas, actually - the gun lover's paradise! Yee-ha.

If the government tries to remove all guns from it's citizens, I will come back here and admit I was wrong. But as it is now, I don't even think the ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines will pass. So, shoot away.

It has been that way since before recorded history and is a part of human nature. Anything that gives the weak an equal footing is an achievement for humanity. The gun has done that throughout it's history, In fact, there would be no such concept as human or civil rights were it not for the gun. Irregardless of what is written on a piece of paper, the only rights you have are those you have the ability to fight for.


Jesus (willing to be crucified for his principles), Gandhi (went on hunger strikes), and Martin Luther King, Jr.(peaceful marches) -- fought for human and civil rights with no guns. They were pretty successful too.

LOL, no they weren't. Jesus was crucified and thousands upon thousands of Christians were slaughtered. The British empire was already crumbling and they were afraid that clamping down on Gandhi as hard as they could have would martyr him and cause an armed rebellion. MLK had the luxury of combating a state that had to tread lightly for fear of armed rebellion also. The Black Panther Party and Malcolm X had a militant following that the government feared far more.

If you don't know what Globalist you need to educate yourself . This whole thing is the start of a step by step plan to take America Down . Have you ever read about the United Nations document for enslaving the world called AGENDA 21 . It is now easily obtainable but there are some very good explanations of its plan for people world wide . Your little dream life is going to CHANGE like Obama said . But you will not like it .
A 10 shot clip would not slow down a domestic killing . You don't know much about guns . You must take a split second to aim a gun to be effective . It would take 1 second to switch to a new loaded clip . Even a 30 round clip would require time to aim for each shot .And you can carry just as much ammo .When laying down covering fire in a battle the 30 round clip would be vital to keep the enemy down . That enemy would be the Multinational force trying to take your country called the UN. If you are not a shill you will want to do some research on the subject .

I see - so Jesus was a failure, Gandhi was a failure, and Martin Luther King Jr. was a failure. Re-write history much?

I figure you probably would like to know what you are talking about and why people are reacting the way they are . Is it not fair for you to consider their view point and why they are thinking the way they do .

The way i see it, there's three options.

1. You own guns, to protect yourself from criminals and an oppressive government. You're never robbed, and tyranny never comes. All is well. The guns are never used.

2. You own guns, to protect yourself from criminals and an oppressive government. Your house is either broken into, or all hell breaks loose and the government decides to go on a confiscation spree. The people use those weapons to protect themselves. Tyranny is avoided and we remain a free nation. (obviously with some rebuilding to do)

3. You do not own guns to protect yourself. You're either robbed, or you fall victim to a home invasion. The criminals have the upper hand, and you're taken hostage in your own home. Whether you make it out alive depends on a dozen factors. Are you good at talking? Better be, and that's if you're lucky. When your government decides to impose total control of the people, they will have no means of fighting back. The outcome? Read a history book.

Those of you that believe people don't need to own semi-automatic rifles or guns period are advocating for option #3. Do you want that to happen to your family? Do you want to live through that? I don't think so.

If you have it and never need it, great. If you need it and don't have it, well, you probably won't have to worry about needing one again.

Didn't the Virginia tech killer use hand guns (glock and p22) only? If this whole ban is about saving life's shouldn't they go after handgun who kill over 6,000 people? I don't even own a gun but I think this ban is a slippery slope.

99.99999999% of gun owners have never shot anybody. But way to bigot them all out and sterotype the whole lot.



I didn't say they would. I said they would be able to. Isn't that what you all want? To be able to?

Isnt it hard to wrap your mind around the fact that the same document that gives you the right to vote, assemble, speak freely, also gives you the right to used deadly force under certain conditions? But its true.

I can't speak for everyone but I certainly want to be ABLE to shoot someone in defense of myself or others.

I was paid to do that in the military with MUCH more powerful and devastating weapons (SMAW). Why should I not be trusted to exercise good judgement now?



Yes, you will be able to shoot 30 people at once, or one person 30 times (if you aren't that good of a shot). I don't know you, so you won't be upset if I don't trust you anymore than I trust that guy who killed Chris Kyle. Eddie Routh was in the military too, wasn't he?


Yep yep. Your a sterotyping bigot.

Nobody appears to be reading my posts. I am not talking about self-defense. I am talking about the ability to shoot 30 bullets very quickly. This is not self-defense. This is a power thing. So, you say you want this type of gun because the criminal has this type of gun? Great, you shoot him 30 times; he shoots you 30 times. Who wins?


Well if hes the only one with a gun he shoots me 30 times and he wins by default.

And it is a power thing....its called the 2nd amendment....power to the people right on.
