Why? You say you are a Christian? Christ said if you didn't have sword to sell your coat to get one. Better to be cold than unarmed.
All I've ever needed is one shot for one target. I like single action revolvers as they make you take aim carefully and save ammo. I had an uncle who was a vet of WW2 that took me out when I was 12 and taught me the basics of both safety and accuracy with a .22. I graduated to heavier arms after that.
You should hear stories I've heard from men involved in both WW2 and Korea. Both were fought under Democrats. Many committed what they call "War Crimes". Fear and pressure can make many do things they rue afterward Makes little difference if any what crooked pol is in charge at the time.
Bible speaks of an age of responsibility. Just like our own laws. Quit listening to idiots and read the Book yourself with Strong's Concordance's help. King James translation has many mistakes and even a book that doesn't belong, Esther. It wasn't even known until about 800AD and the names are the names of Satanic sex "gods". "Esther" Astarte. The name of God isn't mentioned once in it.
But, think of all that beautiful money that goes to the military industrial complex. Also all the usury that goes to banksters that create credit and money from thin air to finance endless war. You just don't understand.
Business runs government. The shylocks through the "Fed" have the most influence and have since the founding of this country. Yes, I know, the "Fed" came into being in 1913 but they operated the same racket from day one here. Look up, "Bank Of The United States" and Alexander "Hamilton."
Everyone has some problems but not with 94% of what they do. My job years ago entailed going into many secure places. I was never really vetted well. I believe I could get into most places today if I really wanted to and take many verboten items in with me.
There are already, "sweeping regulations" to stop the wrong people from having guns. They still get them any number of ways. If I wanted an illegal weapon I could even make one myself. It doesn't have top be a fire arm either. " The guilty flee when none pursue." Our pols are guilty of many crimes and they are fearful of an armed citizenry.
Be careful of statistics. You know the old adage, "Figures don't lie but liars do figure." There have been more killings in past years than recent years in Baltimore. Check it out.
These Muslims that mess with them will be very sorry. The creeps flying commie flags in a "peace parade" back in the sixties found out what bikers can do.
How about Korea? They were invited south by our, then, Scty. of State, Dean Acheson. This under Dem. Pres. Harry Truman. Then the war was not prosecuted in proper fashion I spent months in Letterman Hospital with many of the men wounded there. They all had knowledge that most people never heard.
The ambassador killed in Libya was busy shipping arms to Syria for Isis. Probably murdered to shut him up. Gee, this happened under Obama. You think maybe BOTH parties are operating the same evil scheme and diverting idiots by blaming each other?
Ridden bikes a lot. Managed to slip in for several third places in shorter tri-athlons. Have run numerous ultra-marathons from 50K to 100 miles and a few 24 hr. track runs.
Are you trying to smear me? I've been charged with a felony once but never convicted. "Machine Gun?" A perfectly legal Beretta conversion of an M-1 Garand made for me by Juan Erquiaga who was Castro's armorer in the Sierra Maestro before Castro announced he was a commie. Juan then denounced him and fled Cuba with a death sentence on his head. Be careful my friend. If you were worth it I'd expose you to all and sundry.
Your history is screwed up just like you. It wasn't until the 1800's that slavery really grew. Women, generally could own property early on. Native Americans did quite a bit of slaughter of their own and had it returned in kind. I personally think that in order to vote a person should rate a certain IQ level and pass a test on knowledge of government. I've seen too many dumb heads voting on issues and people they know nothing about.
Someone here took me to task for stating that markets are rigged. Read the Yahoo News about five large banks that rigged markets Goes on all the time in very subtle ways. Just as those that play the game with our un-elected rulers get fat contracts from government. It makes no difference whether they call themselves "Dems." or "Reps".
They didn't vote at all probably. Doubt many are registered as anything. Many are ex felons and couldn't vote anyway. I'll bet plenty of commies voted for liver lips though.
What would you do if someone made you "fear for your life" and you had the means to stop them? If I'm threatened I will use any means to protect myself and family. I dare say you would too. I used extraordinary means to protect myself and two friends from three carloads of thugs once. They tried charging me with felony assault. It was dropped before it went to trial. Pretty hard to prove one man assaulted about a dozen people that had chased us out of a drive in and cornered us up a cul-de-sac.
I thought they had "dead man" controls many years ago. The Engineer claims he doesn't remember what happened. Passed out? Or, maybe deliberate. Could be many things. Let's wait and see.
