    I have to admit, I'm gob-smacked, absolutely amazed at the lack of discussio in this forum regarding what has happened in the recent general election. W are literally looking at one of the greatest threats to the Second Amendment that this country has faced, and yet the message traffic on this message bas is a big, fat zero. Absolutely amazing. So... when the Second Amendment ha been abolished, which the Left would purely love to do, they'll come after t First Amendment. Believe me, THAT assault has already begun. After the Fir is gone, then you'll find yourself wondering how the hell you'll be able to defend the REST of the Bill of Rights. Truth, people. The First Amendment the most threatening to government. The Second Amendment exists solely to defend the other eight amendments that make up the Bill of Rights.

    It's truly a shame they don't teach American History in schools any more.

    The anti 2a folk have been keeping things on the lay low. I'm sure that will change soon.

    It's not that amazing. I've been a gun lover since I was a kid. Deer
    hunting every year. Pheasant, Grouse, Duck. Trap shooting in the summer. I loved my guns. As much as I love my guns I don't feel we need all the guns available out there. We need tighter control. We don't need automatic rifles and pistols. I doubt anyone would take my shotguns and 30.30 but I'd give th up just to set an example. Not everyone should be permitted to own a firearm If you want to shoot people join the army or marines. I'd love debate this though. I get what you and the NRA are saying. I just don't see it happening that way.

    In Germany hunting has become so strict, only single shot firearms are
    allowed. Your .30-30 would be illegal there.

    Do you honestly believe that any of those Amendments are going to be repealed? Do you know what is required to take place for that to
    happen?

    For the record, I'm a staunch conservative, and hardcore supporter of
    the 2nd Amendment. I have owned LOTS of guns, before they were all tragically lost in a boating accident, of course.

    It's truly a shame they don't teach American History in schools
    any more.

    You may be able to find a remedial class at your local community
    college. Study up on what it takes to make (or repeal) a
    Constitutional Amendment. Then, come back here again and tell us what
    you think the odds of that actually happening are. Cheers!



    ... All hope abandon, ye who enter messages here.
    What I think is funny is that you believe they have to repeal an ammendment to render it useless. They've already suborned the first ammendment with all of this "hate speech" crap. Your speech is now officially only protected if it is a popular idea supported by the majority (or whomever the media supports). If they don't like what you say it is automatically labled hate speech and you're ostricized and eviscerated by the media if not convicted. I actually heard on the news that Trump supporters need to be reprogrammed.

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I wasn't a socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
    Then they came for me. And there was no one left to speak for me.

    In Germany, the elephant in the living room is how many "illegal" firearms are still lurking around in closets, attics, buried in the back yard, etc.

    WWII left a lot of real nice weapons running around that little country which were retrieved for safekeeping by the citizens. Germany probably has more "ghost" M1 Garands and 1911s in civilian hands than we do.

    There is a reason why our guys stationed over there in the 90's were occasionally approached regarding the possibility of obtaining .30-06 and .45ACP rounds...

    Sounds like Spain too. Lots of goodies from the civil war floating around. Also lots
    of guns given away or sold by rogue Civil Guards to civs during the post-war era.

    Commie Curic said that, but she is not the only one who has said that.

    First they came for the socialists, and I did not speak out because I wasn't a >socialist. Then they came for the trade unionists, and I did not speak out >because I wasn't a trade unionist. Then they came for the Jews, and I did not >speak out because I wasn't a Jew.
    Then they came for me. And there was no one left to speak for me.

    That is a famous quote, or paraphrase of one. I cannot remember who said
    it, though.


    * SLMR 2.1a * 2 + 2 = 5 for extremely large values of 2.

    As longas they were not from the Spanish Republican side, you are golden :-P

    Spanish Republicans used all kinds of Italian material - heck they even used Italaian anarchist troopers - which was known for
    all kind of problems. Certain machineguns in particular were known for having the firing pins break mid-battle.

    So... when the Second Amendment has been abolished, which the Left would purely love to do,

    Thank you for reminding me of the shit joke of a left-wing we have in the U.S. Any self-respecting leftist who saw the average working class person getting their arms taken away from them to give the rich and powerful an advantage would nip that shit right in the bud before a second thought. But of course, the neolibs strike yet again, as they have been on the Democratic and Republican parties for the last couple of years now.
