Bob Costas is a Troll

So because you think its dumb it should be illegal. Well if that is the logic we are using then I guess I can simply say I think guns are dumb so they should be illegal.

I'm pushing you to form a good argument about something you are clearly passionate about.

90% of the arguments on this forum against firearm ownership exist in that statement right there.

I'm not 100% sure, but it actually might not be illegal for a Class 3 Federal Firearms dealer to put together or own a rocket launcher, doubt they could get the rockets for it tho. 99% sure you can't get grenades.

I have numerous times formed my argument for gun ownership.

To protect my friends and loved ones from other I need a fire arm equivalent to what I would reasonably expect a robber/murderer/rapist to attack me/them with. In my home a 12g or a semi-auto firearm is reasonable. In higher stress situations, say Katrina level chaos, or the bullshit that is going down in the boroughs of NYC since Sandy I would like to have a semi-auto rifle to go along with these things, like an AR-15 or a Mini-14 Ranch Rifle. These things will not stop a Government back force. I understand that. They would stop a roving band of looters tho and quiet effectively. Is it absurd to think this? I don't think so, but you may, that's your right as it is mine to own them

These weapons in my hands pose 0 threat to you or any other poster on this board. They are in my possession and control.

Why do many of you feel the need to remove these things, that I deem necessary to protect "mine" from unseen dangers in the future?

America is not England, we one of the most unique countries in the world. Guns are ingrained in our culture and so incredibly prevalent in the legal and illegal market. "Banning" them would have (IMO) a net negative effect on crime rates in this country. I believe most of you feel the same way.

That almost universal knowledge that guns are in almost every home in America prevents many crimes already. If you believe it doesn't but out a notice of some sort that you are so anti-firearm that you will never and currently do not have any firearms in your house.

I feel like this comment is underappreciated

While I get what he is trying to say, a criminal/nutcase could give two shits on how he robs you/murders his girlfriend.

What I posted in the other thread:

The issue here isn't really about guns and banning them ... it's about Costas taking this "opportunity" to spout his political views. Actually, to allow him to read someone else's political views and agree with them. It was an inappropriate time and place.

If he wanted to give some sort of opinion about any of it, he could have talked about domestic violence in general. The gun issue? Nope. Not appropriate.

Agreed 100%

NBC took advantage of the situation to push a political agenda.

From 2010

Meanwhile as gun sales climb to record highs – 47% of American adults currently report that they have a gun in their home or elsewhere on their property, and given that many gun owners have multiple guns, there may be more guns now than Americans – 2010 FBI data shows violent crime continuing to fall (http://www.fbi.gov/about-us/cjis/ucr/crime-in-the-u.s/2010/crime-in-the-u.s.-2010 ) in the United States, with homicides dropping out of the top 15 causes of death in the country. The statistics undermine a favorite argument of anti-gun groups that “more guns equal more crime.” The reverse is true.As Lawrence G. Keane, NSSF senior vice president and general counsel. Noted, “These statistics vividly demonstrate that the lawful possession and use of firearms by law-abiding Americans does not cause crime…There have never been more firearms in civilian possession in the history of the United States, and crime, including homicide, continues to decline throughout the country.”

As always, the gun supporters are the only ones using the word "ban".

Cheap scare tactics FTL.

No, no. I've since learned my lesson from the Huddle. Women and minorities voted Republican in this election because they are too dumb to appreciate the GOP. Also their vote can only be gotten by pandering.
