I'm a law obiding citizen but I have a beef with my neighbour. Found him ****ing around with my wife.
So I drive across state lines ot VA where I only had to produce 2 forms of ID and waiting 5 minutes for a background check to complete. I drive back over to my state, find me neighbour and shoot him.
My purchase and ownership was done in a legal manner and before this incident I was a law obiding citizen.
Seems pretty ****ed up to me to have different sets of rules to determine who is and who isn't law obiding

the guy in your story could just as easily arm himself and be ready for mr. jealous husband. fwiw, if a guy is ****ing around with another guys wife, he should expect a reaction. is death the answer? no, but in a perfect world, he wouldn't be messing around with the dude's wife anyway.
again, i understand your point, i just don't agree.

Fanaticals usually don'tOriginally Posted by Beelzebub
I don't care one way or another. I can see both points but I am open enough to realize there seems to be more problems with everyone having the ability to arm themselves then selected few doing it.
I guess the US is just a very voilent place? I've spent some time in a few seedy places here in Toronto and Vancouver and never felt the need to arm myself for fear of being robbed, beated or worse. Not since my younger days at least. But that's very different to the a-typical person I think.
Not flaming at all eh? Just really trying to understand the whole reasoning. Seems like a valid reason on the surface to protect yourself before someone else gets to you but if that's the reality of your environment than it WOULD seem that the US is indeed, highly violent compared to other nations?

i'm fanatical for wanting to protect my wife and myself? that's new. i suppose it would be more reasonable to be shot in my own home and my wife raped and beaten to death.Originally Posted by houseman
yes, the world is violent and dangerous. flip on CNN sometime and see for yourself.
08-11-2005, 01:05 PM
and yes, the chances are it won't happen to you or anyone you know. like i said before, i'd rather have one and not need it than need it and not have one.

You lost the point I was tryng to make with the fanatical statement.Originally Posted by Beelzebub
Looks liek I am starting to offend so I'll butt out. Congrats on your purchase though. I do enjoy going to the range for a nice shooting session

not offended bro. just trying to explain my train of thought.
the last thing i want to do is be a victim.

I am with you 100% - we are in violent agreementOriginally Posted by Beelzebub
Obviously, if guns are outlawed, only outlaws will have guns...
House, sorry I dont think I was clear when I was talking about different state laws. In this scenario if you're not FROM VA you can't drive there to buy a gun with more ease than your home state. Basically, if I wanted to shoot my neighbor in NJ, I'd have to wait a couple of months to cap his ass "legally".Originally Posted by houseman

The Dude: Walter, what is the point? Look, we all know who is at fault here, what the **** are you talking about?
Walter Sobchak: Huh? No, what the **** are you... I'm not... We're talking about unchecked aggression here, dude.
Donny: What the **** is he talking about?
The Dude: My rug.
Walter Sobchak: Forget it, Donny, you're out of your element!

The gun problem certainly isn't anything any one or two of us is going to solve. If it were that easy, there wouldn't be a problem.
I'll be the first to admit, there are some idiots in this country that I really wish didn't have the right to own guns. But I don't think that my rights should be taken away because of their mistakes. Besides, even if we ban guns, there will still be some idiots that have them.

Nice! I have a Sig Pro 9mm - lightweight, durable, accurate, and CHEAP ammo for lots of practicing.
I shoot with my dad who has a Springfield XD 40 and XD 9mm - both of those are fun and nice guns too.
My next is likely a revolver of some sort for the wife. The upcoming Taurus Triad looks really interesting.

If you're speaking about a revolution, i'd beg to differ. Look what trouble a rag tag ass bunch of idiots with guns in Iraq are causing for the US. You think several million armed Americans would do worse?Originally Posted by ss01
