Sure, I don't care if you make your kids wait til they're 30 to date. Someone still has to protect the public from them at some point, for every 1 parent like yourself that truly wants to teach their kids the right way to do things there are 1,000 parents who would put a 9yr old behind a wheel just so they didn't have to drive them around anymore. A 'bare minimum' proficiency test for A LOT of things would do this country tons of good.
Gun control is a beyond complicated issue. But fundamentally, can it be said that stricter regulation would result in a lower murder or suIcide rate? Not by any metric or example that's easily, readily obvious. In actuality, to the best of my knowledge it's the complete opposite. Greater gun control = higher murder rates/arguably higher violent crime rates.
So, you think a government with the weaponry ours has would be worried about a bunch of idiots with ar15s if they were hell bent on attacking it's own citizens?
Honestly, I don't care? I'll have my gun and you can continue to be a victim. We all know criminals don't follow the law.
So do you think your gun protects you???? LMAO!! If someone wants you dead with a gun, your gun doesn't mean jack shit.
I'm pretty sure there are studies out there that show you're much more likely to be shot or shot and killed if you're carrying a gun.
Do these guys think gangbangers kill other bangers, dealers, etc that AREN'T packin'???
Like I said it definitely needs revamping. I take pride in being a great driver with no wrecks or tickets to his name after 19 years. My son will get the same tips over and over from me. I want regulations to be much more strict not because I won't be able to trust my own son, but because I won't be able to trust the other parents to do as I do hence my "they need to man up" comment.
"Nobody makes me bleed my own blood, nobody!"
Other than I'm not a gang banger and have training to us my weapons? I'll take my chances.
Btw conceal carry means the gun is hidden... So you won't know I'm armed until you have a barrel pointed at your chest

Lutz. Of course not. But you're both arguing unrealistic extremes. I'm not talking about wing-nut sepratist militia groups. I'm speaking to 'real world' reasons as to why someone might not be so sanguine about surrendering their right to own the exact same weapons that a local or federal law enforcement agent might.
I took a defensive driving class when I turned 16 and it helped a lot in understanding my car better. I think classes like that should be mandatory to getting your license.
Getting into amateur racing helped a lot, too. And I don't mean street racing, I mean on a track.
Dude, like I said before, if someone wants you dead, your gun does NOTHING.
With that logic, why have any laws?
That a 6 hour class right? No question that should be part of the process. It's amazing that a written and driven license test can take less time than a job interview.
What I'm saying is that you think your gun protects you when it doesn't. If somebody wants you dead, I don't care if you have a bazooka, you're dead.
I think you would be surprised at how many would stand up and fight.
Maybe it will come to that
So you think taking away the guns equalizes everything?
Yup, over two days. The guy that taught my group was actually an ex-professional road course driver. Dude had mad skills behind the wheel.
Not a chance IMO.
So wtf are you saying then....
He's saying that your gun doesn't make you any safer than a drug dealer.
You see that sign that says 'Rib Tips'??
Exactly. I dare someone to come through my door without permission
Not all of us are Marines, but wouldn't the world be better if we all were
Well, there goes tonight's plans.
