Funny , the way you guys go on about needing assult rifles one would think that you get broken into all the time .

Have you or do you know anyone that has killed an intruder with a gun ?

Heh, no guns... But today I had to call the sheriff because my neighbors house was being cased- we live in a rural area. We think they took off because they realized my hubby was watching them. The week before Christmas my sister saw a man trying to break in her neighbors house- she lives in an urban area. And we live in two different states.
Personally, I don't use firearms for home defense. I have other weapons for that.

We've all heard Andrew Cuomo say this line during the state of the State address on 9 Jan but sounding more like something from a 1930s era German-American Bund Rally.  The question I want to ask is, how many bullets are needed to bring down a tyrannical government?

More than 10.

Shot, yes.  I don't think he died.

Fair enough .

I’m just trying to understand where you guys are coming from .

I know you guys aren’t real interested in the what the rest of the world think about your gun laws and rules and that's fair enough but I would like to share something with you from an alternative  perspective ....

I guess it would be 15 years or more now since they enacted our reformed gun laws , at the time I had a 12G pump action ( registered ) , a 30/30 lever ( registered ) and an SKS ( un- registered ) .

I was totally devastated that I had to hand over my pump action , it was my pride and joy :cry:   , the SKS on the other hand I wasn't all that worried about , it was hard to ammo for it and to be honest It was totally useless when it came to hunting and being un-registered I was talking a huge risk . Luckily they had an amnesty and a buy back scheme , I got $1200 for the SKS and $800 for the pump action :-*

I used the money to buy a new D/B under/over and a .22 magnum , got to keep the 30/30 .

I guess my point is that although I lost my assault rifle and pump action I didn't lose my right to have a gun or go hunting , just the ability to let off 25 rounds in 5 seconds  !

For home protection , besides having a dog , how is a double barrel shotgun not good enough ?

I had never heard of this: The Battle of Athens, TN. I'm sure it's not taught in schools. No wonder Obama and his ilk are pushing gun bans.

Great clip!  I believe that there were more than 10 bullets used.  Plus, this is why I think that the military will go with the people.  That is why Obama wants a NCSF.  That is why Napolitano has stated that vets, people with guns, and those that believe in GOD are a threat to the state – because we are.  The state is a threat to the Constitution.  When I took the oath to defend this nation from all enemies foreign and domestic, that oath didn't end when I mustered out.

If you can't kill the critters with 1 shot you should go to practice a little. That you want to eat deer does not mean that you should torture it first.
What if the 'critter' isn't a deer?  What if the critter is actually 3 guys breaking into your house in a home invasion?  I know, I know, that only happens in the movies....but what if it really happened, and it happened to you?
Would you want the Government infinging on your right to protect yourself against a gang of intruders?

lol   i remember when deer hunting was a BIG deal around here. But it was often about half hunting and half about deer camp, beer drinking, and card playing and beer drinking and hunting and beer drinking.   It usually took 10 beers to kill a deer.

The 2nd amendment wasn't written into the Constitution so citizens could go hunting.... DUH....... everybody hunted back then.

Whenever I hear that argument brought forth I'm baffled by the lack of logic given to the question.

I say this and I'm Canadian... never owned a gun in my life.  Yet, americans have been conned by their GOV into becoming the world police.  When the american GOV comes for your guns don't trust them.  The american GOV gives the avergae american citizen a bad name because its the american GOV that kills indiscriminately on foreign sovereign soil abroad.  This aggressive american military is hated all over the world just as much as they are loved for killing the so called bad guys.  It's breeding future revenge attacks against americans and westerners.  

America is still the most freest nation of all the developed nations and it's because of their guns... and yes the assault rifles are the guns I'm talking about.
