    We're talking about the US and a hypothetical government that is willing to start shooting. I'm not sure I'd call the situation in Ukraine a win, in any case.
    You had better pay your guild dues before you forget. You are 113 months behind.

    The Ukrainian police start shooting and killing protesters, which ultimately caused them to lose the situation because of global outrage. Firepower alone doesn't always win wars.

    Historically, they provided their own arms also. Unless the Constitution has an amendment, it is what it is.

    People can bitch and complain about what it was the or what it is now, but until there is an Amendment changing the second, it is what it is. Suck it the fuck up.

    We outgun Iraq and Afghanistan too. Just saying.

    Not to mention, most Americans wouldn't follow an order that tells them to open fire on other Americans. I wouldn't.

    Huh? My feelings were never hurt. I thought they were being disrespectful pieces of shit, nothing more.

    Exactly this. "Gun Control" is just a bullshit cover. What the lunatic left really wants is the removal of the 2nd Amendment, but they are too cowardly to come out and say it.

    Which is why I never agree to any kind of limitation as lawful because it is a slippery slope and the Left is pushing us down it all the time. Giving an inch so to speak is still an inch further down the slope.
    I asked for neither your Opinion,
    your Acceptance
    nor your Permission.
