It is hard to undo a state of affairs that already exists, & is an accepted part of the culture to many. Maybe for most, for all I know.

There are many countries, though, where this isn't the case. I am so thankful I live in one of those countries.

@edgarblythe,
I own what you would call an assault rifle Edgar, and I assure you that I do not worship it, or anything else.

May I ask, what is the purpose of the ownership?

@Intrepid,
I enjoy shooting and wanted to add another gun to my collection. I had already owned a handgun and a shotgun, and I thought I'd add a rifle.

I chose this particular rifle (AR15) because of the magazine capacity and when I'm shooting at the range I don't have to reload it near as often. Also it is a very accurate rifle, which is important when target shooting. Also, the resale value of this particular gun has historically been very high, and thanks to Obama's election, the gun is actually worth several hundred dollars more than I paid for it. Not a bad investment.

Another reason I chose this rifle is because the assault weapons ban had expired, and I wanted to purchase a weapon that was previously banned to send a message to our politicians that there are many people in the USA that would NOT support another ban. Sort of voting with my dollars. I believe that the more of these weapons that people own, the less liklihood that the government will pass another ban. And if they do pass another ban, then it's likly that my weapon that I bought before the ban would jump up in value (this happened during the last AWB as well).

I bought this during Bush's presidency, and part of me thought, at the time with Bush passing the Patriot act and a lot of our rights being trampled on, that it may be necessary to fight to protect our rights. Then Katrina happened and after seeing how society can breakdown during a crisis, I felt very relieved by my purchase.

@maporsche,
Let me see if I understand this correctly.

We went from target shooting for fun to investment to civil disobedience to preparation for violence.

Did I miss anything?

@Intrepid,
Was I only supposed to have 1 reason? I'm sorry, your post didn't make that clear.

None of my reasons though involve worship, which was my main disagreement with edgar.

@maporsche,
Of course not. You can have as many reasons as you want. I just wanted to be sure I was understanding correctly. Perhaps Edgar's use of the word worship was a bit strong, but I think we all know what he meant.

I'm not sure why we needed your paraphrasing. Was my language not clear enough? Or was your paraphrasing used to make some point that I may be missing?

Well if he didn't mean worship, what do you think he meant? Does he have a problem with the English language and possibly didn't know what worship meant? I guess, other than worship, I don't know what Edgar meant? Could you help me here? What do you think he meant? I try not to presume/assume too much, it often get people into trouble. I prefer to argue against points that people ACTUALLY state, as opposed to what I wish they said. When I'm unclear with their meaning, I usually ask for clarification, as I did here.

Anyone who believes that Prohibitions WORK,

like it was illegal to get booze in the 1920s, so no one got any.

I have a bridge for sale, Ed . . . . U 'd like it. I 'll give u a special deal.

Funny, David, I don't see you campaigning for the legalization of marijuana.

@maporsche,
Do you have an inferiority complex by any chance? You certainly are the sensitive type.
