The majority of 'bad guys' here look like they are illegally importing them (just like drugs).

I believe here they are kept under lock and key in some 'approved' safe.

No one needs a 105mm gun at home. Nor do they need a 999 clip/magazine. It would be like having a 7 liter adventure bike.... waste of money, good for the status of the unthinking to the unthinking.

We don't need gun control, we need thug control. We need to stop embracing the thug, innercity, gang, mentality. Between newcasters saying "bling" and shows about "baby mommas" enough is enough. What good has come from hip hop culture?

Feeling safe and being safe are not the same thing...Just saying....

a:A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free state, the right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.


b: When dealing with an out of control/overbearing military or police force what type of gun and how many rounds would you say is reasonable? Our second amendment is about protecting us from our government. It's less about what we "need" and more about what is our right as a citizen living under a constitution written by people that understood the fact that a citizenry with the power to take on their government is ABSOLUTELY NECESSARY to maintain a free society. We here in FL USA could honestly give two shits how people from Australia feel about our nation or our right to bear arms (please understand that this is not an insult , just a matter of fact). I am positive that this sentiment is echoed by USA nationals from other regions of our country. While we can appreciate a differing opinion we hope that those of you from elsewhere can appreciate that we simply do not care and will not give up our rights just to appease you or others that have a need to "feel" safe from guns. This is an issue that does not merit compromise and as such we will not.

Gangster Rap and Hip Hop aren't the same thing. There is good and bad in every genre.

Duly noted, friend.

I've been on here 7+ years all over every sub-forum in the house and never once felt the need or inclination to monitor New Posts over the entire board. I drop in where i'm interested and participate/contribute or not. Never occurred to me that some folks are scoping at-large New Posts. Thanks for the heads-up, Thumper. Like bro Buzz said, come hang w/ us here at a gathering gig. You might like the company, despite what you've read here.

I'm not sure a gun control bill would solve future tragedies from occurring. The crazy fookers will just create havoc using other means...
Fixed for you Eloy. We told you so.

Dude, that was just common sense......but you are not the only person I know who is scratching his head regarding this right now....my buddy in Michigan is real quiet right now....

Taxes on the middle class will go up. Spending will go up.

Sieg Heil !!
