    Hell yeah! Hell no!
    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.

    You mean the NEW planned obsolescence generated to make consumers spend more money?

    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.

    Yep.
    Have you seen how fast those guys can toss kegs?? Seriously though the only point of that was to show you that anything can be demonized and fear mongered. The real question is where do you draw the line on weapon bans?? How far is too far?? A police state is pretty safe, but most people don't want to live in one.

    Once he clarifies his position, we can go back to the regularly scheduled absurd-ism.

    The whole point was that its a stupid argument, but its not stupid in the way you think it is. You're laughing at a straw man but its really a non sequiter.

    McClaw,

    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?
