Rifles for self defence???

Discussion in 'Vintage Topic Archive (Sept - 2009)' started by Roblamont80, Mar 19, 2008.

  1. I was reading about the supreme court justices and one of them was fighting to ban all handguns!!! he said that rifles could be used for protection!!! :x What crap!! If some one is breaking in to do god only know I should be able to kill him with what ever force neccesary!!! Does this mean cops and military personel have to carry rifles? Or are they trying to make the right to own a pistol only available to people who work for the government or criminals? The constitution is said to be our god given rights, but they seem to be privlages that are open to interpretation by few people to control many. The whole subject saddens me and weighs heavy on my heart with all the other things that have gone on in this country for years and the lack of the goverments intervention along with many Americans lack to participate in their own future. Just wanted to vent a little and hear what you guy have to say and think too. We are all in this together.
     
  2. I agree with your thoughts 100%, but I still have no problem using all 10 rounds of .50 Beowolf in my AR-15 for self defense. If they want a rifle, they can have a rifle.
     

  3. I've been reading up on the oral arguments before the SCOTUS. One of the interesting comments I came across explained that justices don't talk to each other during proceedings. Sometimes a question is used by one justice to get a response along the lines of what they want the OTHER justice to hear. It sounds nuts, but it means that we can't be sure what each justice will do until we see the decision.

    I am anxiously awaiting the outcome of this. I'm fairly certain it will go our way, but it will probably more limited that we'd like...

    I also believe that if this goes our way this is only one of many cases to follow. On one site an attorney stated that cases in California and Illinois are ready to go as soon as the Heller decision is announced.
     
  4. pretty sad that they know they or so weak in character that they don't want them to face each other for fears of shaky judgements. Thats crap. Put them all on a podium surrounded by the men and women that have to live with there decisions and then let them discuss the issues. It's crap that we the people can't be part of these things that have such a huge effect on our lives. What happen to the justices upholding the rights of man, guess it became more popular or profitable for them to destroy the rights of man.

    It should be pretty easy to spot anyone with a CCW, they will all be walking around like peg leg pete, with their concealled rifle down one leg. Is that a gun or you just happy to see me. :eek:
     
  7. I think THAT pretty much sums it up. :wink:

    One of the founding fathers felt that there would have to be a new revolution in this country about every twenty five years to keep the corrupt governments under control.
    We have gone almost 250 years with ought a revolution. But I think it is well past time for one. The corruption that the founding fathers feared has set in.
    Much like a cancer or gangrene, and we all know the only way to get rid of either of those is to cut them out. And even then some times it is to late.
    Lets hope it is not to late to rid the greatest country of the cancer that infests our Capital.
     
  13. "When tyranny becomes law, rebellion becomes duty".

    Not saying I'm in the mood to rebel, but thought you'd appreciate that one :).
     
  14. Just let me know the jump-off point and I'll meet you there.
     
  15. I seriously don't think they'll ever ban all handguns. (At least I hope not anyway). As far as rifles for home self defense, well, does a shotgun count? I just as soon have my 12 gauge with 00 buck as anything for home defense, but doggone it, it just won't fit in my glvoe compaterment.

    This line does say alot...

    But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same Object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute Despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such Government, and to provide new Guards for their future security.

    Personally I am not walking around like peg legged joe, with a rifle down my pants and looking like I pop Viagra several times a day. They can kiss my american butt!
     
  17. Lol, exactly. Versitility, sorry if I spelled it wrong. Handguns are my prefered firearm because of versitility, even in my own home, walking around corners and such, a rifle or shotgun is easier to grab ahold of(badguy grabs gun unexpectedly).
     
  18. now that is truly quote worthy. I will remember this quote, and quote it myself.
     
  19. Funny thing is I keep a loaded 30-30 behind my head board!!!!
