3 A litany of man's inhumanity towards his fellow man, courtesy of every gun grabber and gun control freak thru out history.

4 So yours saying gun control did all this. I'll have to think on this one.

5 #4 White Devil - Gun-control made it possible. Genocide doesn't happen to armed populations. Only to disarmed populations.

6 So the genocide in Africa and the Balkans was caused by lack of weapons on one side? Not! The claim by gun owners (me) is that guns don't kill people. People kill people. Can't have it both ways.
However, it's a silly subject because single shot and semi automatic weapons wouldn't make any difference when facing a force using modern automatic weapons on modern day platforms. To be a viable protection from whatever, weaponry would have to be equal. Those that are supplying the rebels in Syria with modern weapons are what is keeping things going. Not some slob with a bolt action enfield. Who is going to supply the American populace with modern automatic weapons and the ammo to keep them going?
Well, maybe Mexico will loan us a few back.

The founders of this nation had a great idea but they had no idea of what weapons would be invented in the future.
That being said. From my cold dead hands is when you'll get mine. I have my reasons and I don't keep some academic nerd in the government telling me what I should own as long as it doesn't affect others.

7 WD, the point is that with arms, people can defend themselves.

The gun wasn't that different in the day when the founding fathers wrote the constitution. Armies used them then too.

We generally acknowledge that people do not have a right to own weapons of mass destruction. So, no binary nerve gas munitions allowed. This in my opinion is the limit of the Second Amendment. Besides, the use of such weapons is a game changer. If someone were to launch a weapon of mass destruction against another territory, there isn't much that an individual can do to stop it.

Likewise, if a military force came to a farm with few or no neighbors, there isn't much that one's guns could do.

But if you have neighbors, and they have guns, and an occupying force comes along, a sniper from the territory could do a lot to make the marauding military's visit very expensive. Add to that a bit of coordinated subversive activity and the occupying force won't stick around for long.

As evidence, look at what the time in Iraq and Afghanistan has done for our military morale. Look at what has been going on in Syria.

My reasons for owning a gun are in the hope that I'll never have to use one against another man or woman. But if forced in to it, I will, and I will be proficient at it.

8 I own them to protect critters and kill varmints. I reserve the right to decide which is which.

And my point is one armored vehicle with automatic weapons would easily destroy an entire neighborhood or small town and nothing the weapons of locals could do a damn thing about it. So, to me. It's a mute point. I respect your opinion. I just don't believe it.

11 Is Mark Xariff? Sure sounds like it.

12 Mark is in love with Xariff. Notice he comments on everything Xariff says. Mark lives in San Francisco. Castro district I have heard. Says it all.
