Turtleboy will be the first to admit that he knows jack shit about guns. We don’t have a problem with responsible gun ownership (no one should), but we would like to learn more. So let’s talk about this thing:
The AR-15. The preferred weapon of choice for terrorists of all skin colors and religious ideologies. They seem to be drawn to it. I understand from what I’ve seen on the world wide internets that this thing is often mistakingly called an “assault rifle” for dramatic effect. And we fully recognize that TONS of responsible gun owners possess these things and are a threat to nobody except for dangerous criminals.
So here’s my question – where do we draw the line about what kind of weapon you can and can’t purchase in order to protect yourself and your family? Because there has to be a line right? For instance, nothing would make me feel safer than owning an atomic bomb. No one would EVER fuck with me because I’d be the guy with the nukes.
But obviously I would not be allowed to do that, because we don’t hand out weapons of mass destruction to civilians. And no, I’m not comparing guns to atomic bombs, but the principle is the same. All I’m saying is that clearly there is a line that can be drawn about what can and cannot be purchased for personal protection and peace of mind.
I’ll pose this question to gun owners – what do you want one of these things for? Just curious. Not trying to start anything here, just want to learn. And if your answer is somewhere along the lines of this:
Then that’s a pretty shitty argument. Do better. You’re basically saying that you can’t come up with a reason and you’re hiding in your Second Amendment safe space. It’s almost as bad as this argument:
Newsflash – if we are ever in a situation where our government turns into the Nazis and they start coming after us, we’re fucked. It doesn’t matter how many AR-15’s we’ve got in our bunkers. They’ve got nuclear bombs. Game over. They win. The government will fuck us up so badly and there’s nothing the Second Amendment will be able to do to stop the onslaught.
So I guess what Turtleboy is saying is that we’d like to learn something today. We’d like to know the exact type of situation in which an AR-15 gives you a tactical advantage while protecting your home that doesn’t involve a zombie apocalypse. We wanna know why you can’t just buy a 9 mm. Because if a 9 mm isn’t enough to protect your house from bad guys, then what’s the purpose of buying a 9 mm? Do you live in a trench? Are there Germans 400 yards from your house planning their next charge? Like I said, we wanna learn.
