THE DIRTY ARMY: Nik. DA strong for years. I appreciate your view on the world and saw your post from a few days back from the person who wanted to ban all guns and turn us into the U.K. I’m a right wing NRA supporter with alot of experience with firearms and owner of a few. I am hoping you can post both sides of the argument. I can concede that it is WAY too easy to purchase a firearm in the U.S. We make people take driver’s ed classes for licenses and see doctors for their adderall prescriptions, but to buy a gun all you need to do is fill out a document. You do not have to prove you understand the way it works. You do not have to prove you respect a gun, can load and unload one safely, can re-holster a gun without crossing your body or another’s body with the nozzle. You don’t have to pass a personality test. You don’t have to prove you own a safe and can keep them away from children and criminals. There is absolutely no training required to buy and own. I can guarantee that if someone had to pass a certified weapon’s expert’s practical test to buy a firearm, most of these crimes will end. A trained professional can determine who is “ready” to own a gun just by seeing them handle an empty one for 30 seconds. Banning weapons is not necessary. We just need to tighten things up. My guess, based on the 200 million guns legally owned in the U.S., that 20-30 million of them are AR-15s. The problem isn’t with the gun itself, it’s with who we allow to buy them. We can’t ban guns though. Read up on military intelligence from our country and others. It’s almost universally agreed that the U.S. can never be invaded by a foreign army because of the number of legal and responsible gun owners in the country. We take away everyone’s guns, and it’s only a matter of time before Wyoming has a Chinese military base.
I’m not well versed on this topic to speak out of my ass. When it comes to people with guns I listen. I don’t want to get shot.- nik
