29 April 2013 - 05:31 AMI've seen a lot of this "if you weren't trained the way I was, you don't deserve the same things I do" from military personnel. There's more than one way to fry an egg, but it tends to seem like the military people think there is only one right way.I happen to know plenty of gun people. Some of them come from a military background, but most don't. Plenty of the non-military people are extremely proficient with their arms. Usually moreso than the military guys, as the military guys seem to be more non-chalant with the weaponry, occasionally bypassing action I would take in the name of safety. Bottom line: I'm sick of the "my training makes me better than you" attitude. From anyone; non military included. In many cases, your training makes you educated beyond your intelligence.

25 April 2013 - 05:07 AMBut now you're trying to apply legislation that was supposedly designed with criminals in mind and attempting to apply it to the potentially mentally damaged. Similar, but not close enough. That's like putting a Ford engine in a Chevy. You can make it work, but you're gonna have to modify a lot of stuff.

No. What you're talking about is compromises. Give an inch and they'll take a yard. Besides, if you look at history, you'll notice that in every instance where registration was implemented, it was only the beginning. Compromise here, and you start down a path that inevitably will end in confiscation. History is riddled with the fact that registration eventually leads to confiscation. It's not limited to dictatorships and the third world, either. It happened in Australia in '05. Think it can't happen here? Keep compromising and find out how much they take from you. I won't even say they can have my guns when I'm dead, because then they belong to my children, and I pray they will cling to them with the same fervor I do.
Studies have shown that guns in the hands of legally armed citizens prevent something on the order of 100 times the number of violent acts against innocents as all the gun deaths together each year. That seems like your acceptable compromise right there. So why are they trying to take my guns again?
