so some newspaper lists all the registered gun owners on a website where you can look to see where guns are and who owns what, the current mood is that guns are killing machines and not really usable for anything else. Exceptions for hunting allowed, but you do that with a different kind of gun than an AK-47 or an AR-15, which are clearly not for hunting, just shooting AT people.
gun people are being viewed through the lens of "psychopaths" and then people start throwing death threats, therefore proving the point that perhaps they are psychopaths....AWESOME WIN!!
I can understand the kick people get from firing them, but I don't understand why they need that in their house. Is america such a dangerous country to live in? perhaps you should fix that, then you won't need guns, like we did in europe.
I view most gun owners I've read or seen on the telly as complete nutjobs, they say things like, a well armed militia, we can defend ourselves if the government turns bad, etc, etc. Are these guys for real? you could not in a million years, take down the government in it's current state, with your piddling stock of semi or fully automatic rifles, what is that going to do against a tank? I suppose you're gonna tell me you can blow the tracks off, awesome, but there are hundreds of tanks.....
I said this once on a forum a week or so ago and the answer was, you don't attack the tank, you attack the crew inside who get out to eat, etc, etc. The response is obvious, you have to survive that long in the first place, which you won't do.
ANYBODY, NO EXCEPTIONS, would get killed within an hour if the government turned up on your doorstep, even if you scored some minor kills, you've be overwhelmed eventually and you'd lose, there is no tactical way for you to win, they can fire missiles at you from 100's of km's away. You're toast.
so anybody saying it's to protect themselves against the government is a crack head....they have no grip on reality AT ALL, so to be honest, I don't like the idea of them owning guns, just in case one of them goes "nuttier than normal" and starts running around main street wasilla doing a number on people.
So that takes care of the people owning the big, killing machine type weapons, what about people who hunt, well, typically they own guns which aren't really a problem, it's the crazy people we have to look out for, anybody sensible enough to know how to hunt and put food on their table from the local environment is clearly a couple of grades more intelligent than the rest of them, so I trust those guys a heck of a lot more.
pistols? yeah I guess in self defence, but why do you have to have guns in the first place? are people in america so dangerous that you can't trust anybody......jees....fix your screwed up society man....first world country? doesn't look like it to me....california, new york, florida (parts of), san francisco, perhaps those parts are first world, but the rest? no effing way, the rest is full of sister fucking religious lunatics who force women to take trans-vaginal ultrasounds to listen to the heartbeat of the baby they are going to kill to try to shame women in taking care of their lifes and their businesses, they are the guys propping up congress and the house of representatives and making sure the military industrial complex keeps on trotting along....healthcare? holy mackeral......bleeding to death in a hospital because your insurance is out of date, are you serious?? what kind of human does that...a shitty human, a piece of crap I hope one day runs out of insurance and dies, cause I'm sick of living in a world populated by these assholes.
a lot of americans who visit barcelona, spain where I live, say they would never return, they spend 1 year studying and then move to london, or thailand for 6 months, perhaps australia after that.....all americans of about 20 years old, should just leave that stinking cesspool and come to europe...
your country is a mess, sort your shit out and you wouldn't have these problems in the first place!
