Pulling up threads started by you I pull up several on video games. Video games are dorky.
Having dorky hobbies isnt anything to be ashamed of, you know.

By the way, I'm pretty sure you CAN own a GE Minigun in California. I know you can own one in Tennessee, where Kat lives. Good luck finding one that's transferable, and then of course you need enough money to mount it and buy ammunition, but there's no law against it.
I believe Mike Dillon actually owns a transferable minigun, though it may be the only one in existence. It's not regulated any differently than any other machine gun. There seem to be several other owners out there, but as far as I know they're all Special Occupational Taxpayers (machine gun dealers) who own post '86 "dealer samples."
Also, did you actually argue that citizens can't win against the federal government because they have the Phalanx system? Were you serious?
Granted, that will make it difficult to employ my anti-ship missiles effectively, but I still think my nuclear subs will make a significant dent in the carrier group. :eusa_danc
Seriously, the government can have all the toys it wants, but if it wants to enforce tyrannical laws that actually inspire a popular revolution, it has to use soldiers on the ground. Yes, it could level Chicago or St. Louis with B-52's, but since those are American cities and it's trying to be America's government, it's not an attractive option. It would also only have to happen once before the rest of the nation rose up to destroy everyone who had anything to do with ordering such a thing.
You think the insurgency in Iraq is tough to deal with? It would be worse here. It would be horrible for the insurgents--worse than I think, probably. Years of near-starvation and sudden, unpredictable death. However, people don't live in tanks and bombers. A partisan in Europe was asked once how he would deal with Germans in Panzers when he had only pistols and rifles. He replied that even tankers had to get out and take a piss every once in awhile.
When you speak of the "only real protection against tyranny" being the Posse Comitatus Act, you may be forgetting that it's only a law passed by Congress. You count on it to protect you from that same Congress, which has the power to repeal it tomorrow morning if they so choose. Then what?
The possession of weapons by the citizenry is not some law. It's not a paper tiger. We have these weapons, and passing a law won't take them away from us by itself.

You're right. It's geeky, not dorky. I'm a geek, and I'm proud of it.
I founded a dorky computer company to prove it, too!

Vietnam, and now Iraq.
Both show that armed indigenious forces do more than enough to stand up to a modern military. Past and present.Originally Posted by Sifu Rudy Abel
4/27/2006 2:00am, #117The Afghans and Vietnamese weren't citizens who shot guns every Tuesday and Saturday at Bill's Shooting Shack, they were capable soldiers who had experience actually fighting.
First, there's no reason to believe citizens won't kill citizens, because it happens all the time, especially when the citizens being killed are viewed as enemies to the country. In fact, you guys have said you will do it when Big Brother marches the military into your country, and the time comes to use those weekends at the range to save The World.
Second, the American Revolution and bringing armed forced into America are very different. Britain was fighting wars around the world, so it couldn't bring its full strength to bear on the colonies. The Americans also had the help of foreign powers, especially the French, which is no guarantee should the American government march soldiers into the country. Finally, the American revolutionaires got their **** handed to them too, before Washington was able to make an effective fighting force, and he was only given the time to do so on account of the other two factors.
You are making alot of excuses for the British, are you one? Bottom line, the United States defeated a World Power, you cannot take that fact away from history, no matter who helped, who the British was fighting, blah, blah, blah.

Not to mention my more important point that these people come to power not by alieanating the gun-toters and militarists, but by enlisting them. Chances are you will be putting the bullet in my brain when I speak out (note: speak, not shoot) rather than putting your bullets into Big Brother
