What couldn't you get? All made perfect sense to me. Pluggers are thongs, footwear type.

Carrying one of those replica assault rifles in a city here would get you shot dead by police.
We had a couple massacres and after 1996 laws stopped most people from owning semi automatic guns and everyone from owning automatic guns. The country is not the worse for that. Now we don't have random shooting massacres.

I understand a lot of US citizens feel that it's more important to be allowed to own any sort of weapon with no demonstration of need or restriction because someone hundreds of years ago said that you could, i really do.

But most of the world has decided that they don't want all the crazies owning assault rifles is all.
I also understand we are talking about replica guns in this instance, but the fact is that some things are just casualties of other things and the replica guns are casualties of the laws restricting people owning assault rifles.

I own two rifles by the way, legally licensed and registered guns.

It's not about crazies owning assault rifles. It's about the sane people who own guns that make crazies and the government think long and hard about attempting to perpetrate gun violence. It's no coincidence that the crazies choose gun-free zones to attack innocent people. It's no coincidence that the US cities with the strictest gun laws have the highest gun violence rates. Highest by orders of magnitude.

Here is a good Auzzie read, even has a few good vids to watch.

http://www.truthology.org.au/index.php/ ... false-flag



QUOTES:

“I ask, Sir, what is the militia? It is the whole people except for a few politicians.” – George Mason, co-author of the 2nd Amendment.

“A militia, when properly formed, are in fact the people themselves.” – Richard Henry Lee.

“I prefer dangerous freedom over peaceful slavery.” – Thomas Jefferson.

“To disarm the people is the most effectual way to enslave them.” – George Mason.

“The best we can hope for concerning the people at large is that they be properly armed.” – Alexander Hamilton.

“Before a standing army can rule, the people must be disarmed, as they are in almost every country in Europe.” – Noah Webster.

“Americans have the right and advantage of being armed, unlike the people of other countries, whose leaders are afraid to trust them with arms.” – James Madison.

“Those who would give up essential liberty to purchase a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety.” – Benjamin Franklin.

“A free people ought to be armed.” – George Washington.

“No free man shall ever be debarred the use of arms.” – Thomas Jefferson.

“The very atmosphere of firearms anywhere restrains evil interference – they deserve a place of honor with all that’s good.” – George Washington.

“Are we at last brought to such humiliating and debasing degradation, that we cannot be trusted with arms for our defense? Where is the difference between having our arms in possession and under our direction and having them under the management of Congress? If our defense be the real object of having those arms, in whose hands can they be trusted with more propriety, or equal safety to us, as in our own hands?” – Patrick Henry.

Really? You think if the citizens own guns it makes the govt think long and hard about attempting to perpetrate gun violence on them? You really honestly think that that is why your govt hasn't shot you?

That just blows my mind.

It doesn't work for one city to have tighter laws when you can drive an hour to the next city and buy whatever you want, that's why the statistics you're not quoting may be looking like that.
These things have to be on a national level.

I know this is an argument i can't win, because there's sentiment involved that overrides fact.
I miss the days when as a 10 year old i could walk in to any gun shop in my city and legally purchase a gun for myself, wrap it in a towel, get on a train with all the Saturday tourists to an outer town and go wandering in some paddocks shooting game. The folks on the train would strike up a conversation about what i expected to bag. Hell a rifle wrapped in a towel is a nod to respect only.
Nowadays if i got on a train with a gun wrapped in a towel there'd be pandamonium, the train would be evacuated and the riot squad would rock up. We're only talking 40 years ago to that 10 year old with a handful of 50 cent pieces in the sports store too.

The world is now a different place for better or worse and some things have to change to keep up with that, including not being as free as we were when it was the wild west. Eventually that pressure will tell.

Sasquatch, that stuff all looks pretty dated.
Here's some more recent ones.

'Nothing will ever be the same': Newtown parents on their enduring pain, leaving their children's bedrooms untouched and the siblings who don't understand they're gone


'I won't gloss over this,' Veronique Pozner, whose son Noah, six, was killed, told People. 'What happened to those kids was brutal. Nothing is ever going to be the same from that day forward.
'It's agonizing to see your baby's name on a grave.'


At least 28,000 children and teens were killed by guns over an 11-year-period
For every U.S. soldier killed in Afghanistan during 11 years of war, at least 13 children were shot and killed in America.

The Second Amendment to the US Constitution was written and adopted specifically because the government did shoot its citizens with guns. It is more relevant now than when it was ratified 224 years ago.

There are more than 360 million guns in the US now. If the government seized 10,000 guns per day, every day, it would take 99 years to seize them all. That bell cannot be unrung.

There is a name for citizens who depend on the government to protect them from gun violence. They are called victims.

I typed then retyped a long winded comment here and I couldn't come up with something that seemed appropriate...

At the end of the day we are all justifiably upset with gun violence. I hope we can find common ground there, among other places.

Most likely Mud.
but it is more relevant to this forum then you think.

Distillation of Alcohol or guns makes no difference.
It all comes down to we are not trusted and considered incompetent.
99% of us on this forum are breaking someones law because we learned an ancient craft.
This craft was handed down to me from my father. Its part of my heritage.

Lets all hold hands and sing an old favorite with me.

I didn't understand much of what them old boys were sayin', but I thought it was funny - the way they stole them ne'er-do-wells' keys and got some entertainment out of just sitting back and watching the reaction. Kinda like redneck ingenuity. Sometimes justice can be achieved in the simplest of ways.
