You just proved my point, you fear a tyrannical takeover.
If you live in America and you haven't seen the turn our country has taken slowly but surely since 9/11 and have not been following recent events, new
legislation all aimed at eroding privacy, freedom and rights, I don't know what to say....... I have seen all of this and yes, I am afraid of tyranny
in this country, I'm very afraid of it and if your not it's only because your not paying enough attention.
Fear again, a reoccurring theme with gun advocates. How about investing that money in motion sensor flood lights or perhaps big bad looking dog
instead? OC spray? Baseball bat? Ever heard the expression "live by the gun, die by the gun"?
Motion sensor's get set off all the time in my neighborhood from a multitude of things, nobody gives it a second glance, much like car alarms. Dog's
can be dispatched easily, ask the next ATF agent you run into. OC spry and baseball bats are great, they do little to shield you from guns.
I would rather take my chances living by the gun and possibly dying by the gun than living by the flood light and dying by the gun.
Trust me, none of my posts will ever prove the point your trying to make my friend. You talk a lot about fear but which one of us is truly afraid? You
are the one trying to sell me on the idea that if I live by the gun, I could possibly die by the gun........ A risk I gladly take because I understand
the price of freedom. I respect your opinion but I question your logic.
