[quote]Again, that's not necessarily true depending on how you define "arms."[/quote] Oh, I totally agree. Which is why my post is pointing out that we're really all arguing about the scope of weapons control we're ok with. Not whether it should exist at all. ...

[quote]Define bombs, because it's completely legal to own fireworks, and various other explosives with the proper paperwork. Again, fully automatic weapons before 1983 are legal too. You can even legally own flamethrowers[/quote] So you're saying that it's not illegal to own all types of bomb...

[quote]Gun control is not the same as nuclear weapon or MOAB control.[/quote] Yet one of the most common arguments I've seen on this board and elsewhere that any restriction on a right to bear arms is unconstitutional. If that's true, than why do we differentiate between guns, nukes, and MOABs? The...

We're all in favor of our right to bear arms being infringed. - Tigereye10005
I was having a gun control discussion yesterday and someone pointed this out when I brought up gun ownership being an unalienable right becaise of the 2A. The argument was essentially that it's already illegal to own certain kinds of guns, it's illegal to own bombs, it's illegal to own missiles,...

re: How to survive a mass shooting - Tigereye10005
The standard approach these days is 1) run, 2) hide, 3) fight In my personal opinion it should 1) run, 2) hide and prepare to fight. Meaning get behind a locked door ready to attack the first person to enter the room. Maybe you catch them with the element of surprise, maybe you don't. But better...

[quote]Well, federal government has a strange obsession with discrimination. It throws a giant wrench in their social planning/economic engineering when people get to choose who they associate with.

[quote]He mentioned HOA-LIKE. A community of like minded individuals could very well form an agreement to live without firearms, in a regimented police state like collective, etc. They just couldn’t force people to stay there.

[quote]HOAs are enforceable contracts between consenting adults. The USG's obsession with discrimination might be one example of a very inconsistent exception to that norm, but that certainly doesn't make HOAs toothless, or covenant communities pointless.
