From what I've seen "everyone is an idiot who cant be trusted except me, I'm special" is a very American attitude these days.

Look no further than your local politician.

When you have people who cannot spell their own state or don't know what county they live in... do you really want these people having a firearm?

Fear of the stupid is......well......stupid.

Think about all the positions the lesser of us occupy. Morons package your food, cook your meals, change your brake fluid, drive your children to school, deliver your mail, etc.....

If you were to be consistent you wouldn't be able to leave your home without fearing morons. You might not even be able to have kids. Lord knows plenty of apples fall quite a ways from the tree now and then.

A double digit IQ shouldnt disqualify you from enjoying the same rights and freedoms and subsequent responsibilities that come with life in a free society.

The difference is I can choose whom makes my food based on where I purchase, I can choose to drive on roads with idiots or take the bus. However, saying everyone has a blanket without having to prove their mental state or intelligence level in safe and proper firearm training is scary to me.

Furthermore, everyone needs to prove if they can drive a car, if they can handle a job where food is prepared (in AZ you are required to have a food handling card)

Now, lets not get this confused as in I believe the state should decide whom gets a firearm... not what I am saying.

However, my point being is that there are people out there whom in my opinion, should not be able to own a firearm regardless of their background. There is a minimum amount of training and intelligence in even the basic workings of how each firearm is handled, loaded, firing mechanism, etc. There is a state of mind that also comes with a being a firearm owner.

If we were arguing something like dog ownership, there would be a lot more people who would agree with me.

It is also my belief that the state is successfully (with their anti-gun rhetoric) disarming citizens but not in a way people might think.

Whenever they begin talking about anti-firearm legislation, what happens? People go crazy and start buying up all they can (read the OP story about going into an empty gun shop)

So, FFL dealers are making a quick buck but now have no inventory. Since a HUGE portion of FFLs are small business and literally order their inventory month to month... how are they going to pay their rent 3 months down the road when they have no inventory to sell?

This is pushing the firearm business to the top as in, Wal-Mart, Cabelas, Bass Pro... ya know... the big guys.

Much easier to regulate guns when you only have a dozen dealers in the country.

store that bad boy in a safe?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
that has to be the single most assinine sentence ive read on this site in my 5 years lurking here...and i've read ALOT of david icke threads if that tells you how stupid you sound to me..
why even buy a gun? you are not a responsible gun owner.. you are an overcautious victim in waiting..
i can see it now..." no fair mr. badguy!! you broke in while i was running to my safe trying to nervously fumble with the keys and/or combination lock..do over!! do over!!"

to the OP... keep that bad boy close, but out of reach for a child...if it makes you nervous, don't chamber a round. thats all.

why do you relate having guns to scared?

personally i have many reasons for having several different guns.
each has it's use and its limits.

Sorry, but their is no fear here, anyone who thinks there is, is more than
welcome to see me face to face. (my preferred way to communicate, i dont use a
phone. I like to look someone in the eye when i call bul#sh#t.)

Nothing like that up here in Michigan. Was up at the gun shop last week and they had plenty. From longarms to handguns. Only problem is the limit on how many boxes of ammunition you can buy.

Due to the shortage of ammo, no warning shots will be issued.

Yeah everyone is sold out of everything! I am in process of my first Class III SMG purchase. I hope to be ripping up the range in a couple months!

I have been stocking up on ammo, and have done pretty well given that everywhere you look is sold out!

the title and content of the OP might have contributed to make me associate guns and the mass-buying of guns with fear.
maybe i made a hasty conclusion.

Yeah...the fear of not being able to buy a gun.

Makes you want to be armed when you hear Holder not ruling out drone use on US soil against American citizens. If I'm going out...I'm going out with a fight.

The double action is not appreciated enough. You can keep a round in the pipe and not worry about an accidental discharge. The well made ones, I have a Sig-Sauer P250, have a butter smooth action. If you are a good shot you can almost squeeze out the same rounds as a single action and be accurate. The slightly slower action is made up for the fact that you can safely carry your weapon locked and loaded.

The revolver makes you stop to think and shoot more efficiently. In times when ammo is scarce and disaster is plentiful, make every shot count.

Being able to spell is not a prerequisite to exercising your Constitutional rights. And yes, I trust the average American gun owner regardless of their education more than I trust politicians that want to control everything and restrict our rights.

Driving a car, or owning a dog are not Constitutional rights. The 2nd Amendment not being infringed is our insurance policy, our guarantee of future freedom. It is the right of all Americans to own a gun (with the exception of convicted violent criminals), and anyone who would infringe that right is a traitor to our country.

Felons insist they have the right to vote.....who doesn't vote anymore? I mean, they ship illegals in by the semi fulls to vote.

Illegals have guns. Felons have guns. Everyone votes.

You want all the honest people who try to play by the rules to be the only segment of society unarmed? I don't think so......
