i think a crazy is not likely to be able to put together an effective bomb in the timeframe that they are looking for.
You think? Try linking to some hard examples, next time. Unbacked thoughts are cheap.
that shit is for movies,
Wrong. It is quite real.
just a few bottles of household bleach and suddenly you can blow up buildings, that's all crap,
Maybe not blow up a building, but bleach can easily be used in conjunction with ammonia to make deadly chlorine gas.
the defence of the home/person against thieves who could turn violent is a lead to the basic level of gun protection in many homes. (So the thieves themselves have to carry guns, et al mini-firearms race begins.
If this "mini-firearms race" you speak of really exists, I'd like to see some articles about street muggers holding people up with bazookas.
I've been reading a lot of disturbing stuff on slashdot today, there are many posters that either believe the movies are real and you can kill many with a pocket knife.. or that it's just a trivial matter to fashion an improvided explosive out of chewing gum and toothpicks.
Strawman. I never said anything about making explosives with chewing gum or toothpicks.
Also unilateral gun restriction of the jewish is unrelated to gun laws that effect everyone.
I'd like very much to see a reasoned explanation of why you feel it's unrelated.
Guns aren't going to keep you safe from a corrupt government.. they're certainly not working right now.
Agreed. Guns won't protect you from all levels of corruption in government. That said, it really depends on what kind of corruption we're talking about. If you're just talking about bribes, under the table deals, pork-barrel spending, or even fake foreign wars for personal profit, individual ownership of firearms would probably have no perceptible influence in such matters. The one area where it might make a difference is when said government reaches such a level of corruption that it begins to consider the cost-benefit of going door-to-door and exterminating large segments of its' citizens. The goal here is to make the cost sufficiently high as to nullify any possible benefit to such an organization (Incidentally this is why the reference to the Jewish Holocaust above is relevant).
