  •  AW's are for people who need to blow shit up (1+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    I can see having AW's if you live some place like the southwest with lots of gang activity, home invasions, car hijackings, junkies supporting their habits with burglaries, and are very well trained in the use of firearms against superior numbers equally well armed.

    If you aren't well trained in their use and not planning to go to war with a number of scary people I'd actually expect the scary people you want to protect yourself from would end up taking your guns and killing you with them.

    Even if you are well trained and live in a scary place I'd propose your best alternative for protection is to move.

    •  Whew.... (4+ / 0-)

      For a moment, I thought you were talking about my AR- and SKS-pattern rifles.

      Fortunately, mine are only used for target-shooting, hunting and home-defense, so they don't fall under the label of "assault weapons".  

      And I've seen little evidence of people trying to use them in defense having them taken away by the attackers.  Certainly not in any statistically notable numbers.  Maybe you have some evidence of that?

      ...I'd propose your best alternative for protection is to move.
      Yes, we should cede territory to criminal activity.  That will help.  

      Your hate-mail will be graded.
