This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.
The message boards have been upgraded. Please log in to your existing account by clicking here. It will ask twice, so that it can properly update your password and login information.

The RPGPundit's Own Forum Rules
This part of the site is controlled by the RPGPundit. This is where he discusses topics that he finds interesting. You may post here, but understand that there are limits. The RPGPundit can shut down any thread, topic of discussion, or user in a thread at his pleasure. This part of the site is essentially his house, so keep that in mind. Note that this is the only part of the site where political discussion is permitted, but is regulated by the RPGPundit.

Exactly this. ANY LIMIT ON ARMS OF ANY TYPE is in direct violation of the Constitution. Just because they have managed to get some laws passed doesn't make them right. This is a direct consequence of activist judges dereliction of duty in applying the law as written, not to make laws because of their ideology. I should, if I can afford it, be able to buy any weapon. Of course I will have to answer for it if I make illegal use of it, but otherwise it is no one's business, particularly our governments. As tenbones points out quite succinctly, any abridgement of our endowed rights allows abridgement of any of our rights. It's exactly why the framers held the right to bear arms only second to freedom of speech.
I once made a pretty good argument that you could block private ownership of nukes on the grounds that it would violate the Non-Proliferation Act (which the U.S. is still a signatory to).

However, if you can afford anything else...

When I was younger, I wanted a tacnuke, but then I grew up and wanted a Strategic 250MT Nuke (for home security!). Now in my old dottage, I'd like an orbital Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) in the 700 Megajule range (for defense against home invasion by aliens that David Icke keeps talking about).  I hope one goes on sale before the apocalypse finishes - I only have a small bent plastic spoon to protect myself right now. :'(  I'm afraid I'm not very diverse in my divergence tonight...

Well the USA is apparently now willing to sell MOABs to allies (Israel) so maybe they'd be open to allowing private citizens to have one?

It's not like the Founding Fathers didn't have ship mounted guns as part of their private merchant fleets.  Air power is as much a part of modern life as ship cannons were back then.  No reason I can't have a personal air force.

Except for being a dumbass Canucklehead of course.

Quite true.

Of course, my comment is 'you buy it, you're responsible for it'. That's one of the big problems we have. Personal responsibility is practically a dirty word these days.

I once suggested that if you really wanted to stamp out 'gun violence'? You disallow any plea deals with firearms charges, and you treat ANY crime committed with a firearm as premeditated. And before some smartass pipes up, no, self-defense is not a crime.

But then that would require certain people to show a little spine when dealing with outlaws.

Whoa there buddy.  Proper trigger discipline is white supremacy.  It's not the fault of that innocent little gang banger that that gun went off 10 times in that officer's back.  It's the fault of the white patriarchy.

Well, that explains the NFAC friendly-fire incident in Louisville.
 
I was wondering how that happened.  Thanks for the info.   :)

Leftest females are entitled to make jokes about the reproductive organs of men.  This from the Roll20 discord server.

That's actually pretty mild compared to things I heard in public. The time of ignoring them is almost over!
Wait for it...
