Tangential question for those of you who collect guns:
Do firearms have the whole planned in obsolescence thing like computers and cars? Like, will a firearm likely cease functioning ten years after it was made, or can they be easily maintained into perpetuity?The fool thinks himself immortal,
If he hold back from battle;
But old age will grant him no truce,
Even if spears spare him.

Are you trying to make an argument about innovation vs "planned" obsolescence?
Yes, I am serious because this can be answered multiple ways! I think I know what you are trying to imply, but I am not sure.

I have a Moisin Nagant that was made in 1943. Shoots great. Most guns will last certain number of rounds before they need service, but not years. if you regularly service a weapon, it can last decades.
If you don't it could be useless in a few years.And lo, Kano looked down upon the field and saw the multitudes. Amongst them were the disciples of Uesheba who were greatly vexed at his sayings. And Kano spake: "Do not be concerned with the mote in thy neighbor's eye, when verily thou hast a massive stick in thine ass".

Has anyone mentioned that the #2 most deadly mass shooting in history was done by a police officer in a country which pretty much bans civilian firearm ownership?
What about the fact that the only crime ever committed with a fully automatic "machine gun" on the national registry in the last 30 years, was also done by a police officer.
What about how the Supreme Court decided several years ago that the police have no duty, whatsoever, to protect you?
