its official, ive been banned from

Gun Control Reform Activism (Group), for this post


they're a friendly bunch aren't they?

i would like to thank

the mods. and members of this group for sharing their point of view.

while i disagree with your ideology, i am grateful for the opportunity to read and discuss firearms with you.

no matter what your opinion of the nra is

this is a good vid.

what is an armor piercing bullet?

is a 7.62 full metal jacket bullet armor piercing? or perhaps a .40 caliber hollow point? or a 30-06? a 30-30? what about the dirty hairy .44 mag round, is that armor piercing?

the media talks a lot about banning armor piercing rounds, but what are they?

"That rifle on the wall of the labourer's cottage or working class flat is the symbol of democracy. It is our job to see that it stays there." -- George Orwell1

Let’s start with this: The citizen’s right to possess firearms is a fundamental political right. The political principle at stake is quite simple: to deny the state the monopoly of armed force. This should perhaps be stated in the obverse: to empower the citizenry, to distribute the power of armed force among the citizenry as a whole. The history of arguments and struggles over this principle, throughout the world, is long and clear. Instituted in the context of a revolutionary struggle based on the most democratic concepts of its day, the Second Amendment of the United States Constitution is perhaps the clearest legal/constitutional expression of this principle, and as such, I think, is one of the most radical statutes in the world.

It often seems to me that guns are to liberals what drugs are to conservatives. Liberals respond to to the real damage that guns do as factors that exacerbate (but do not cause) destructive behaviors is the same way conservatives have responded to the real damage that drugs do in exacerbating destructive behaviors – with the impulse for prohibition, enforced by the law and its armed agents, the police. Quick, pass a law! Call the cops! has become a virtually automatic reaction of conservatives and liberals alike, according to their various tastes; it’s “the same inability to understand the fundamental nature of the problem at hand coupled with a perpetual, short-sighted faith in the inherent justness of well-meaning legislation.” (Mike King)

my apologies if this is a re post.

just for curiosity sake

as my name implies, i like to over indulge in alcoholic beverages. i technically own firearms, but after some shit happened i became an alcoholic. i gave those firearms (by choice) to a trusted friend/family member. with the intent of getting them back when i got my shit together. like surrendering your keys at a party.

my question is should there be some law that requires gun owners to surrender their firearms to a trusted friend/family member if they develop some issue, mental or physical which causes them to no longer be safe and responsible owners?

if so how do you enforce it?

hello, are these quotes real?

"Political power grows out of the barrel of a gun" Mao Zedong

“The most foolish mistake we could possibly make would be to allow the subject races to possess arms. History shows that all conquerors who have allowed their subject races to carry arms have prepared their own downfall by so doing. Indeed, I would go so far as to say that the supply of arms to the underdogs is a sine qua non for the overthrow of any sovereignty. So let’s not have any native militia or native police. German troops alone will bear the sole responsibility for the maintenance of law and order throughout the occupied Russian territories, and a system of military strong-points must be evolved to cover the entire occupied country.” – Adolf Hitler, dinner talk on April 11, 1942

i have read these quotes many times in support of rkba, but are they accurate, and not taken out of context.

i could quote the bible and prove God hates gays. so quotes taken out of context don't mean anything to me.

finally, i believe it was proven this quote was false "you cannot invade the mainland united states. there would be a rifle behind every blade of grass" Isoroku Yamamoto

thanks in advance for any info you provide. my apologies for any misinfo.

i posted in the other group as well to get both points of view.
