    I'm not in favor of banning anything, including uranium, mad cow disease or heroin, but if it gets to the point where you need security guards positioned all throughout the hallways of all the country's high schools and it's obvious that some action needs to be taken to deal with violence, I'd sooner see a weapon banned than the mentally ill imprisoned or euthanized like they suggested in the wake of Sandy Hook.

    And I will never advocate for increasing securities such as cameras or police forces. No amount of manslaughter justifies the creation of a police state.

    I just like that I live in a country where I have the right to come to a different conclusion about my self defense needs than some other folks.

    Variety is the spice of life.

    You can learn and train how to aim, take care of, respect and handle a gun, no doubt. But if your moral code is to protect people and not harm them, you'll still hesitate to shoot a fellow human being. They don't say the first time is the hardest without reason, after all. And that is time your attacker can use to turn it upon you. You see it in 'green' gun men all the time in movies - it's a frequent plot line for a reason.
    I don't think you can say that for sure. Esp if some guy is rushing you with a knife.

    And I think "the first time is the hardest" is the aftermath.

    When I hear about knife violence in places with heavy gun control it always makes me think of a line from A Country Boy Can Survive.



    I had a good friend in New York City
    He never called me by my name, just hillbilly
    My grandpa taught me how to live off the land
    And his taught him to be a businessman
    He used to send me pictures of the Broadway nights
    And I'd send him some homemade wine

    But he was killed by a man with a switchblade knife
    For 43 dollars my friend lost his life
    I'd love to spit some beech-nut in that dude's eyes
    And shoot him with my old .45

    'Cause a country boy can survive
    Country folks can survive

    I just popped off about 500 rounds yesterday.





    But you can never be too prepared, there's Zombie Rapists everywhere.




    For funsies, I'm building to a point (f****** youtube, this is HD but Vimeo is so much better)




    Soooo, me and my buddy, Bustin, were talking afterward on the drive home about his girlfriend, one of my oldest homegirls, and how she's only been to the range once or twice, doesn't really like to shoot. But we were just discussing how it's important that she at least knows how to shoot his Beretta. If there was some intruder and she was alone. She needs to now how to use that shit.

    We live in a peaceful town, yet I've had TWO friends burglarized, one with a pregnant wife, the other was hog tied by meth heads that were openly talking about whether they should kill my friend or not.

    I would like to see gun threads banned as their main purpose on Typology Central is trolling.

    And your incessant anti-American, anti-gun threads aren't?

    Hello Mr. Mole. Do you have any evidence to support your claim? If you find them offensive perhaps you should not click them? Since you've clicked this thread and have interacted with it I'm lead to believe that the intent of your comment is to censure discussion and control what others may/may not see. If a discussion involving guns offends/seem trollish to you why on earth would you click a thread titled "Guns ARE Equal Rights"? May I suggest sending a PM to a mod? That seems like it would be more effective.
