GUEST,Chicken Charlie BS: Debate: NRA good or Evil? (180* d) RE: BS: Debate: NRA good or Evil? 07 Apr 08

Yup, what Jack said.

I should be able to have a hunting rifle, or to carry a gun for my protection, or to target-shoot for sport. I don't need a Thompson with a fifty-round drum, or armor-piercing incendiary bullets.

We no longer fight wars in an 18th century manner, so I'm not sure that a "militia" really IS necessary, unless by that you mean the National Guard or the various reserve units, and they don't take the high-powered stuff home for personal use on the weekends.

It was ironic that when Mr. Heston made his famous "cold, stiff fingers" speech, or whatever it was, he was holding an antique firearm of some sort. I don't want that--I want the Uzis, zip guns, etc. off the street.
