For sport, protection.

Do cops carry assault weapons?

I think Ryan meant private citizens owning assault weapons.

That's always a tried a true response to a legitimate question.

If cops have assault weapons, and criminals have assault weapons...then why should I be denied the right to own one to protect myself and my family?

I have said it a million times, I don't want to live in a country where the only two groups of people with these guns are criminals and the government.

You can protect your family with a glock just as well.

If I am in a mall that someone decides to start shooting up. I sure as shit am not relying on the armed security guard, who is likely an ex-high school football player who failed out of junior college, to help. I hope that there is one of those blasted "gun nuts" there with a conceal carry.

Why don't you just get a concealed carry permit yourself and remain armed while out in public? Do you have the mental capacity to act quickly when witnessing potential danger, take out your firearm in time, accurately aim it at the threat and pull the trigger in time before anyone is else harmed?

True or false, do you believe if we banned all violent movies, games, televisions shows, books, music etc...within a generation we would have a significantly less violent society?

Remember the Crusades? That was brutal. But video games, movies, tv shows were not in existence. People's belief in religion, on the other hand, motivated wars.

Honest question, does everyone here believe that a tyrannical government couldn't happen in the US?

Definitely not occurring under Obama's 2nd term.

I am reminded that we are a young country, and off the top of my head I can't think of a developed country that hasn't had to survive a tyrannical government at some point in their history. Germany, China, Japan, Mexico, Soviet Russia, Spain, and Italy among others have all had a point in their history where they were lead by a tyrannical dictator. Mass murder of citizens as a result of the citizenry being unable to defend themselves.

Food for thought.

As someone mentioned earlier, you're giving the U.S. government too much credit.

So you don't believe that it could or would happen?

Not in the next 10 years, at least.

Once the government creates an army of cyborg soldiers to take out Americans, then there's the possibility of tyranny.

Did anyone actually say that or is that just people making rash assumptions?

This was your response to the question of if you have ever used an assault weapon:

Pissed off hogs, three illegal immigrants, and for sport/pest control it allows you to take out more than one animal at a time

Did I say murder three, or protect myself against three? Murder, shoot, kill, fire upon.. We're never used. I never said I used but the mere presence of a weapon like that will deter unpredictable trespassers . Idk about you but even if I had a pistol I would run from an assault rifle of was trespassing on his land...ergo.. Rash assumption

I wasn't assuming, just pointing out how others would have interpreted that remark.
