Reminds of the old days when a linux kernel compile would take 6 hours and we were trying some modifications for VIA hardware which required hundreds of tries with minor changes in the driver codes - so we would start the compile with a script to play two different types of music on Error or Success, and then go to sleep.
If in the middle of the night it was dire straits then we would get up and debug/fix the errors and start a compile again; if it was some soothing instrumental we would continue sleeping knowing that its compiled.
Offering 6 months if you accept guilt and waive your right to a Trial V/s We will get you for 50 years. That's as bad as the mafia asking for protection money - Pay $100 a day OR we'll demolish everything in your shop or break your knees.
Breakdown of order definitely requires one to keep such protection and I am all for automatic weapons to be allowed. Banning things only stops the good guys anyway
My point was that "having an assault weapon" and "having the guts to protest with a fair chance of dying" - are two different things. And the protests need a HUGE number of citizens before you can overthrow a tyrannical government.
And with such numbers its NOT the guns which are the critical factor in the overthrowing at all. It is only the sheer number of citizens which creates a fear of "revolt of the guards" situation for the Government because almost every soldier or policeman will have a loved one who has faced the brunt of the oppressive forces.
If it was only a smaller portion of the population protesting, even with automatic assault weapons, you would only have an Afghanistan like situation within the country. Armed forces derive more of their power from their organized operations, logistics & motivation than from the level of weaponry. And facing automatic weapons from random groups of citizens is going to keep their motivation pretty high as one thinks one is upholding the law. But facing huge number of unarmed pretesting citizens will always result in the rank & file starting to question their actions. Though it will have its cost in terms of number of citizens hurt or killed, but that will still be smaller than if you would be protesting with automatic assault weapons. Anyway, that's the theory. I have no personal experience of protesting against the Government at such scale.
Though, automatic assault rifles would not really change either of these situations much - not unless half the country had them. But I agree they would at least help to some degree.
Just that when it comes to overthrowing a whole government, there are different dynamics at play.
As for the various crazy guys shooting people occasionally, US probably needs more 'crazy control' than 'gun control' i think.
It is always about so many of the citizens being pissed enough to be willing to die in protests or go to jail in such large numbers that the Government is no longer sure of the support of large sections of its police, army, administration etc.
Doing that with assault rifles or unarmed like Gandhi is no different. An individual in both cases has to be willing to die, even if the overall fatalities as a group may be less or more.
How many US Citizens with assault rifles have ever protested against the TSA ? Can you even imagine them doing so ? Its probably better to protest unarmed against Governments. As a rule, the Government can't back down from an armed conflict till it has expended all its resources. Its quicker and cleaner, relatively, for hordes of people to protest, go to jail, get hurt, few even killed to make a sufficient impact.
In the end it is only about Numbers. Off course,
So what? Is it a bad thing to be paying attention to what you're doing?
That's your argument ? Going by that logic, resistive screens should be even better for you - you have to press each key Twice. So double the attention !
Not REQUIRING more attention simply means its EASIER & SIMPLER to use. When you want you can pay attention to whatever you feel like.
