No one will ever take our guns.  I'm not too worried.
Will they ever take our Due Process?   Our right to remain silent?   Our right to privacy in our persons and property without a search warrant?   The answer is they've taken all of these things in disturbing new "laws" they're trying to pedal as important for our security.    Even when we're under attack over here because of our support for oppressive regimes over there, our troops should be here defending our freedom, not jeopardizing our freedom by defending some despot's oil wells   The reason we can't defend our own borders is because we're more interested in the border between Iraq and Syria or Afghanistan and Pakistan than we are between Texas and Mexico.

With all this talk about gun violence from Washington DC, I'd like to take the floor and talk to Washington DC about bomb violence.

I identified the purpose, the potential uses, in the OP.

Whoops.  Sorry, missed it.  Got sidetracked.  My bad.

Just because it is a mystery to YOU doesn't make it unexplained.

STORM - a must watch - caution, some profanity and may cause you to experience reason.

Sorry to admit this, but there ARE guns in the afterlife! Luckily, though, you can't kill a dead person. All kidding aside, the only thing that survives death is memory and the desire to experience the memories of others. If any of those memories involve firearms, they're vividly lifelike. Believe it or not, I fired a Thompson submachine gun during my afterlife experience. It was fun! But right here in reality, I am dead against gun ownership - with an accent on "dead!" If you're interested in my afterlife experiences, check out the ad for my book right here on the home page.

"If it is not advantageous,do not move.If objectives can not be attained,do not employ the army.Unless endangered do not engage in warfare.The ruler cannot mobilize the army out of personal anger.The general can not engage in battle because of personal frustration.When it is advantageous,move;when not advantageous,stop.Anger can revert to happiness,annoyance can revert to joy,but a vanquished state cannot be revived,the dead cannot be brought back to life."
