    Do I need a assault rifle, I'm thinking you are referring to the AR15 in general? Yes I believe I do. In the worse case scenario I need to be able to reach out and touch some of the tyrannical government forces before they get close enough to require the use of handguns and shotguns.

    Certainly a bolt action type rifle could fulfill the "reaching out" duties but the AR15 also allows me to enjoy competition (3 gun) and to simply relax at the shooting bench at the range, all done with 1 rifle.

    You must understand, If they have the ban (remember, this includes many of the Taurus pistols!!!) and it makes no difference with crime, they are coming for your "nice" guns! But, as you say, you might be dead as your so old (and isn't that the point of Obama care???) This is not a point where a little is OK, they will NEVER be satisfied with a little. They will take it all!!

    I answered your question. After reading more of your thoughts, I retract my answer. I was wrong. You do not need an AR. My mistake.

    My old statement was about Zombies coming. Fighting it IS my point but fight it with more than " It is my right." Yes that is a large part but to have a better fight it is better to have MORE reasons. Not like they haven't changed rights before.

    ...Now, about that whole age and health thing. We have a guy here, we call him MilPro or Harry, who is not in the best of health and is a little more aged than I, who has proved himself as a leader of the fearless. Harry was a military police first sergeant. That man doesn't need a rifle, but he has one, anyway. Harry has something else that is more needed than a rifle in his hands; Harry has the ability to lead, and he has the tactical and technical knowledge that would make his leadership more devastating to a tyrant than any little black rifle.

    I hope you get that point, too. There is a good chance you have more to offer than just a finger on a trigger. Again, you know a lot more about yourself than I do. I'll bet you have a lot to offer, though!
    You've just made an old soldier's day, Brian.

    I am honored and profoundly humbled to be used as an analogy in one of your mind-probing posts.

    I totally agree with your statement that we "...have the responsibility to stand prepared to take back the nation from tyranny and arbitrary rule."

    Do I think we should have the right and be able to buy them? Yes.
    Do I want or need one? No
    I have plenty to protect my home and my person and even have fun at the range.
    Am I alone thinking I have enough?
    I don't know anybody who has an assault rifle. They have been illegal for private parties to own for many years without permiting that most people find excessive. Nor do I know anybody with enough money to feed a fully automatic rifle for more than a few seconds. Most everybody I know makes do with a semi-automatic rifle. Some people like their rifle to look like a military rifle, some don't. That is purely a matter of taste and I see no reason for the government to legislate appearance.
