Mr. Happy says
I have never considered having guns as protection from the government, but from the growing number of bad guys in this country. The police can't do much until after the crime is committed. It is now up to the citizens to protect themselves.
Fair point Mr. Old Poolman. Just for the sake of the conversation now: what about the part in the Second Amendment which speaks of a "well regulated Militia"? Is that not because of the Fear which States have towards a potential tyrannical Fed?
Mr. Happy, I guess that was the original intent, but like everything else it has evolved into being able to protect the lives of yourself and those you love. We have tied the hands of law enforcement to where we now have to be able to do it ourselve
You know I searched my memory and cannot remember one case of a civilian shooting a criminal where the criminal died from automatic gunfire. I remember some trap gun killings. I remember some revenge killing.

I don;t want to sound like a smart ass or anything here but in all honesty, how many cases of a man killing kids with a knife do You hear of and how many gun rampages are there ... the difference is enormous. True people are doing the killing.
Eric Dierker says
To my knowledge, there is no legal supplier of weapons selling full automatics to any civilian. All of the civilian rifles fire only a single round everytime they pull the trigger.
I think you meant to say there is no supplier legally selling fully automatic weapons to the general public. And also modifications to recent weapons which make them automatic, will destroy the barrel in about a ten second burst. Enough?
