Keep an open mind, does anyone who is on the no flight list need to own an assault rifle, ever? Should anyone else need to have these types of guns? I come from a family where most of the men fought in American's wars and yet none of them owned a gun. I am nearly 60 and I've never owned a gun nor would ever buy one.
There is no need to stockpile weapons, there is no government take over in the forseeable future. Stop with all this macho man stuff and get real. But your weapons away and learn to solve our problems using our minds and a lot of compassion.
