The argument of fighting back against tyranny in government is very common when debating the second ammendment, wouldn't you agree? Asking at what point would it be okay to exercise that right isn't trolling.
I do agree, this question has been asked hundreds (or more) of times, over and over, yet the response is always the same. Add a new aspect or angle to the issue, and it's an interesting topic. As it is, it's a rabble-rousing "would you kill a cop for something that a cop would do illegally?" thread, is absurdly obvious trolling. As you stated, there are differing opinions in this forum (and as such, I don't belong), but I would argue that I belong here as much as you because my opinion differs.
OP is nothing but calling out a hypothetical scenario that's rehashed thousands of times on gun boards with the same response. Of course gun owners aren't going to want to give up their guns, just as smokers don't want to give up their cigarettes, drinkers their beer, drivers their car, etc... It's intentionally evoking an emotional response, ie; "trolling"
Some that have already been stated that I agree with:
-Take care of your finances.
-Stay in shape (round doesn't count).
Some I haven't seen yet:
-Don't lie, cheat or steal, and do not tolerate those amongst you who do.
-Hold yourself accountable for your actions, do not make excuses.
-You don't need to read 5 hours a day, but you should always be reading a book. When you finish, start a new one.
-Keep a positive attitude, it's contagious. (A negative attitude is also contagious, avoid people who are always negative.)
-Don't get married until you are mature enough to put someone else before yourself. For me, that was close to 30.
- ^^^Same with kids.
-Try new things. It will make you feel young again for a few minutes.
Covers quite a few candidates from around the league, and gives a pretty good background on each. Here's just a few:
Tom Gamble/San Francisco 49ers/Director of Player Personnel: In my 14 years of covering the NFL, I don’t recall getting as many strong comments about a potential GM candidate from high-ranking personnel executives and NFL player agents as I’ve received about Gamble in doing research for this piece. In fact, one NFL GM said my list should start with Gamble for the very fact that he’s about as well-rounded of a candidate as you’ll find.
Eric DeCosta/Baltimore Ravens/Assistant General Manager: The veteran personnel evaluator received his latest promotion in May of this year. DeCosta turned down several interviews with other teams earlier this year because it’s a well-known fact that he’ll eventually take over the entire football operations once (GM and Executive VP) Ozzie Newsome retires. What makes DeCosta one of the strongest personnel executives is due to his extensive pro and college scouting background, which spans over 16 years. And he has worked alongside of Newsome for many seasons. It also doesn’t hurt that DeCosta has been part of one of the NFL’s most successful scouting departments in regard to the NFL Draft for many years.
Marc Ross/New York Giants/Director of College Scouting: Ross joined the Giants in his current role in 2007. He got started as a college scout back in 1997 with the Philadelphia Eagles and was promoted to team’s college scouting director in 2000, at the age of just 27. And after working as a college scout for the Buffalo Bills after leaving the Eagles, he moved up the ladder again with the Giants. As one former NFL executive who worked with him for many years told me, Ross is one of the most organized and forthright people he’s come across in his years in the league. Ross, over the past few years, has interviewed GM jobs with the Chicago Bears, Indianapolis Colts, and Seattle Seahawks. And it’s widely believed that he’ll get an interview for the vacant Carolina Panthers GM opening since former Giants GM Ernie Accorsi is advising the team in their GM search as a consultant.
Warfighter^^ The pace of BO2 is too fast for me to coordinate with my shooter buddies. I've played the majority of WF with a co-worker on comms, and we can usually coordinate to cover fields of fire, cover & movement, etc... With BO2, we usually just talk about an objective or side of the map, but can't really get into small squad tactics. However, the pace of the game(s) change with the mode, so ymmv.
