[QUOTE='Poesidan [GAG];22950503']Hmmm. Now I will be 10 times more suspicious of the surrounding neighbors. :frown:[/QUOTE] Why?
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950526]Then let him take my shit. Nothing I own is more important than a human life. Perceive the way of nature and no force of man can harm you. Do not meet a wave head on: avoid it. You do not have to stop force: it is easier to redirect it. Learn more ways to preserve rather than destroy. Avoid rather than check. Check rather than hurt. Hurt rather than maim. Maim rather than kill. For all life is precious nor can any be replaced[/QUOTE] Enough with the philosophical shit, because you and I both know very well, that you aren't just going to sit there and relax while he takes your shit, when you can fire a possible non-lethal round.
I find it somewhat odd that the traditional supporters of limited Federal power and states rights, the Conservatives/Republicans, were the majority on this. And I also like how it was an exact split between Conservatives and Liberals, you don't usually see it being exactly on party lines in the SCOTUS. EDIT: Well you do with a few people *coughScaliacough* but not usually this rigidly.
Ok how's this: Buy a gun. Go ahead. Get a handgun. Something to subdue an intruder. Why do you need an automatic rifle or a shotgun?
thx for the insight 14 year old ghandi
[QUOTE=starpluck;22950545]Enough with the philosophical shit, because you and I both know very well, you aren't just going to sit there and relax, while he takes your shit.[/QUOTE] Probably. I'd be scared shitless that he probably had a gun, and if I took one out, he'd probably pull his out.
People should be able to make a responsible and mature decision, in regards to retaining weapons in their home. If they do not agree with such things, don't purchase weapons! If someone would like to have a gun in their home, as long as they don't perpetuate or commit murder, then they should be allowed to choose to obtain and retain a weapon. In truth, this whole issue of gun control is moreso about individual choice and freedom than it is about the actual use of the weapons. EDIT: Just stating: I am not a Conservative.
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950567]Probably. I'd be scared shitless that he probably had a gun, and if I took one out, he'd probably pull his out.[/QUOTE] And so somehow you're certain that he isn't murderer or some shit who'd kill you afterwords?
[QUOTE=starpluck;22950594]And so somehow you're certain that he isn't murderer or some shit who'd kill you afterwords?[/QUOTE] Hide.

Saying "Oh but I need guns for self defence" is like saying "Oh I have high blood sugars due to eating too much sweet stuff, so I'll just take medicine". What I mean is that instead of keeping weapons for home defence, focus on lowering the criminality rate.

[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950551]Ok how's this: Buy a gun. Go ahead. Get a handgun. Something to subdue an intruder. Why do you need an automatic rifle or a shotgun?[/QUOTE] Second amendment in a nutshell: It is for protection from the government. Not robbers.
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950551]Ok how's this: Buy a gun. Go ahead. Get a handgun. Something to subdue an intruder. Why do you need an automatic rifle or a shotgun?[/QUOTE] In a home defense situation, I'd rather have a shotgun, to be honest. Also, shotguns are great multipurpose guns. Defense, hunting, skeet shooting, target shooting etc. Not only that, but they're probably on the safer end of the gun spectrum too.
[QUOTE=Emperor Scorpious II;22950611]How is it odd that supporter of gun rights were the majority on this...?[/QUOTE] Because it conflicts with their support of limited federal power? Seems like they would be against the federal government being able to strike down any law harsher than theirs that comes from a State or Municipal government.
Do you know how long a background check takes in virginia? let me help you: 30 minutes. It took me 30 minutes to go out and buy a p226. WITH ammo. Now tell me, why do you need a gun to help protect your home other than a handgun?
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950605]Hide.[/QUOTE] Hmm. I'd either hide or if I had enough courage, take out my handgun and force him to stay put, then call the police.
[QUOTE=GunFox;22950623]Second amendment in a nutshell: It is for protection from the government. Not robbers.[/QUOTE] That's fucking stupid [editline]03:11PM[/editline] [QUOTE=starpluck;22950649]Hmm. I'd either hide or if I had enough courage, take out my handgun and force him to stay put, then call the police.[/QUOTE] Or maybe you'd be just like every other person in the world and use a baseball bat to scare him away?

fyi you don't need to actually shoot someone for a gun to be a good deterrant. just having anyone pointing a loaded gun at you is enough for most people to fuck off

When I used to live in CA, I used to have a 20-gauge shotgun. That was for hunting as well.
[QUOTE=POLOPOZOZO;22950679]Because shotguns are cool.[/QUOTE] And that is what republicans are ACTUALLY thinking.
[QUOTE=Xen Tricks;22950645]Because it conflicts with their support of limited federal power? Seems like they would be against the federal government being able to strike down any law harsher than theirs that comes from a State or Municipal government.[/QUOTE] This is an INDIVIDUAL right, and part of the federal constitution in the Bill of Rights. That means people have the right of it no matter what any government says, whether it be state or federal. Neither state nor federal can ban an individual right.

[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950659]That's fucking stupid[/QUOTE] Haha what? You need to seriously go look back at history.
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950659] Or maybe you'd be just like every other person in the world and use a baseball bat to scare him away?[/QUOTE] I doubt I would be able to do anything with a baseball bat.
[QUOTE=starpluck;22950692]I assume for assurance, and people like to go hunting as well. When I used to live in CA, I used to have a 20-gauge shotgun. That was for hunting as well.[/QUOTE] Ok then, you need it for hunting. Make it a law that you can't keep it in your house, but at the game wardens office, and when you want to go hunting, go pick it up.
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950443]Somebody robs my house, I'm not going to shoot them. I'm not a trigger happy redneck.[/QUOTE] No but I'll sure as hell point it at them and tell them to get the fuck out.
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950551]Ok how's this: Buy a gun. Go ahead. Get a handgun. Something to subdue an intruder. Why do you need an automatic rifle or a shotgun?[/QUOTE] Because a shotgun or a rifle do it better.
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950659] Or maybe you'd be just like every other person in the world and use a baseball bat to scare him away?[/QUOTE] You don't bring a bat to a gunfight :clint:
[QUOTE=ProboardslolV2;22950716]Ok then, you need it for hunting. Make it a law that you can't keep it in your house, but at the game wardens office, and when you want to go hunting, go pick it up.[/QUOTE]Not really. I drove all the way from southern CA all the way to Arizona for hunting.
