    Weapon p0rn!

    It`s amazing what money can buy these days.

    >Just 100 years ago? The modern army had a bolt-action rifle.
    >Just 200 years ago? Muskets were the standard weapon. Muzzle-loading flintlocks...

    Just for the record, when the 2nd amendment was adopted, citizen-farmers typically had BETTER guns than the army. While soldiers were issued muskets, most farmers owned long rifles which had approximately twice the range, twice the accuracy, twice the knock-down power, and twice the rate of fire compared to muskets. In an open field, a group of farmers could take out at least four times their number of soldiers without suffering a single casualty.

    For the record, its existence doesn`t entitle you to own one.

    "The constitutions of most of our states (and of the United States) assert that all power is inherent in the people; that they may exercise it by themselves; that it is their right and duty to be at all times armed; that they are entitled to freedom of person, freedom of religion, freedom of property and freedom of the press. The beauty of the second amendment is that it will not be needed until they try to take it. The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government."-Thomas Jefferson.......Amen.

    Therefore, if the government NEEDS these weapons, We NEED these weapons. If then the government is willing to stop spending billions to refine ways of killing and spend billions instead of curing and refining ways of improving lives and killing disease, cancer, diabetes, mental illness, PTSD and take proper care of our veterans.....I`ll sure agree to that. Won`t you?

    Well said.

    If the founding fathers ran for office today they would be laughed off of the political spectrum. Dems and Repubs wouldn`t give them the time of day.

    this stuff does not worry me very much.

    What DOES worry me greatly is us building autonomous robots/drones for the battlefield that have NO robotic rules programmed indelibly into their brains. Did NOT ONE of these engineers ever read Asimovs rules of robotics? We already have drones that kill people....what is to stop tem from, some day really soon, turning on all mankind?
