    It would just be an incredibly uncomfortable situation for us to be in. Imagine being tasked with cracking down on the very people you're supposed to be protecting. I can't even fathom doing it. Hell, so many of the people in the service now are just young kids trying to pay their way through school. That's the reason I joined to begin with, not because I had any vested interest in killing Taliban or blowing shit up. Of course with time your opinion and perspective changes, but the truth of the matter is that a very large chunk of the military now is kids fresh out of (or in some cases, still in) high school, between the ages of 17-21, who are just trying to jump start a good future for themselves.

    Phills, I took the liberty to mark in red what makes an assault rifle an assault rifle. Any rifle with 2 or more of the red circled items is an assault rifle. I hope after seeing this maybe you understand a little bit more about these weapons and why people think the fear of them is so crazy.



    I actually am in love with shooting because the science of a long distance shot amazes me. What it takes to put a bullet on a 10" circle of steel from 1000 yards away is truly awesome. It's like the funnest math problem ever.

    Everything matters and has to be taken into consideration. The altitude, the wind, the barometric pressure, the dew point, the temperature, the ammo you are using, and sometimes even the spin of the earth itself.

    The offer still stands if any of you are interested in having some fun and learning some science. PM me

    Not only that, but damn, you just can't beat the smell of gun powder and the crack of a rifle on a range.





    ... except when it's like 10 degrees out and you have to shoot and there's a metric fuckton worth of snow on the ground around you and swirling in the air, screwing with your visibility and sight picture, among other things. Never was a fan of that

    Can I bunker down with you when the world is in an uproar? I will bring my private arsenal.


    Kind of unrelated, I really really want one of the Tumblers from the Dark Knight series. Those things are badass. It will be my private tank.

    And I don't get the drunk driving argument. Drinking isn't the problem. Drinking and driving is the problem. Which is why society makes it illegal. If anything, we are too tolerant with DUIs. There really is no excuse. If you can afford to go out and get drunk, you can afford a taxi ride.

    300,000,000 armed Americans is a formidable force

    tanks and jets eventually run out of gas...also, no one thought a bunch of farmers, minutemen, and die-hard American patriots would take down the British

    I saw an "end of the world" style movie once, don't remember which one now. But the guy thought he was the last person left on earth. When he finally does see someone else, the first thing he does is shoot at them.

    Check out a boy and his dog. It's an older movie, but it's fantastic, and it has a great ending.

    I think gun safety in this country could be improved.

    Another headline yesterday, a 4 year old accidentally shot and killed his 2 year old brother playing. I don't know how any gun owner could be against improving gun safety in our country to help prevent this sort of tragedy. Like with most things, neither extreme position is the best answer.
