    Well we're going to need guns for the death panels and abortions under the new health care bill. Also for those who disagree with the king.

    A gun is not a weapon. It's a tool. Like a butcher knife, or a harpoon, or an alligator

    yeah to shoot, just like a knife/scissors is to cut. The way its used is at the user's discretion/blame.

    The reason guns are as it is in the declaration is because the people will have a chanse overthrowing an corrupt tyranic government. (I was for banning guns untill I got to know about this.)

    Hm, I wonder now again what the reason is to why they want to ban guns.

    Guns don't kill people - the government does.

    I like the idea of taking up arms against corrupt governments. The principle. But when i think about it some more its clear that only the idea is sound. You get a handgun, the govt gets a rifle. You get a rifle, the govt get an assault rifle. You get an assault rifle, the govt gets a minigun. You get a minigun, the govt takes away electricity, water, communication and porn. et cetera.

    If a government gets corrupt enough to warrant its people taking up arms against itself, don't you think they would crack down on communication before people could even get organized? And if people were to organize despite those odds, do you really think you'd get 300 million people pulling in the same direction? In the best case scenario you'd get splinter cells labeled as extremists and terrorists by the government, in the worst case scenario you'd have a civil war.

    In my opinion the idea of taking up arms against the government is a noble idea from a simpler time that just wouldn't be practical today. I believe that propaganda would be more effective than guns to fight the government in this day and age.

    Slash, I see you're from Norway, I don't know if you live in the U.S. (or what gun laws are in Norway) but there are a shitton of heavy weapons owned by common people here.

    Hell, in Camden, the police came under fire from guys shooting off semiautomatics and had assault rifles just in case they got bored.

    I enjoy drawing guns.
    Carrying an M-16 not so much.
    It was dirty, heavy, and had a tendency to make painful contact with heads when you took the bus.
    Could have been worse, it never had an M203 attached to it.

    What I object to is not so much the obvious trolling, but the laziness. Seriously, "discuss?" And in multiple threads, no less? Is that the best you can do?
