Yeah, well, when that fictional zombie apocalypse 'happens' we'll see how long you gun guys last.

Ah, after a long while the macho guy with the gun has run out of ammo and can't locate anymore, huh? Shame. Better get behind that lady with the big blade in her hands and simply a sharpener in her pocket.

What a ridiculous post! Everyone that owns a gun is prepping for a zombie apocalypse and we are all "macho." Hilarious! Oh by the way I also own a knife and sharpener!

Right, because sarcasm in your post came through so clearly! Don't deny that you actually believe in what wrote, even if only in some part. Also read my response and see that little sh!t eating grin at the end of it? That's me showing a sense of humor regarding your post!

Whatever you say, dear.

A person would have to try a lot harder than that to actually get me into an silly internet argument because they didn't like my opinion on something they're passionate about.

You and me Indigo. We'll BOTH be the ladies with big blades when the Zompocalypse comes. Let all the "macho" guys worry about digging up ammo when they run out. I'll ALWAYS be prepared.... (For the record, I also keep a short but heavy metal bar in my purse for when I'm away from home and my blades. Much easer to get out than a gun. It doesn't require a permit or special classes, either....)

If the Walking Dead has taught us anything (aside from how to string us along with B.S. cliffhangers), it's that it's not the zombies you have to worry about in the zombie apocalypse... it's the people. And they're probably not all packing knives and sharp sticks.

I have several guns, I have a carry permit and carry almost daily. I know the Laws in my state. I hunt small game. I was raised around guns and never thought of it being a big deal.

I guess for me, I don’t have a problem with the actual amendment, I guess, but I do feel that it’s terribly outdated and seriously needs to be updated. At the time it was originally set up, jt made sense that the country had the right to form an organized, militia to protect everyone from actual invaders. I don’t own a gun and never have and neither has anyone in my immediate family. In all honesty, outside of Walmart, I’ve never even seen a gun. Never fired one, etc. I just don’t feel there’s a need for it and feel that the country needs better gun laws…how to go about that…I dunno. I still do feel that the US has an unnatural obsession with them.

Hm, this topic got me thinking to how the gun laws are here in Japan. It’s a very extensive process, which is probably why gun ownership is so low here.

First and foremost, you have to be at least 18 to put in for a gun license. One of the requirements is to state a legit, and genuine reason why you want to own a firearm, like if you want to hunt or I guess if you’re a collector. You also have to do an extensive background check, which includes a mental health check and if you have any addictions. I guess if you’re an alcoholic, maybe you’re rejected or something. I never did ask what could disqualify you regarding “addictions”, but I’ll assume drug addiction. I also think you need a reference and I’m pretty sure that you have to take classes focusing on proper gun use, storage, safety, etc.

The gun license has to be renewed every two or three years, iirc, which means the mental health check and stuff again. Also, every gun sold by shops (and I think the same goes for ammo) has to be in a public registry.

Maybe that’s why gun fatalities are so low here. I guess it’s too easy to trace it back to the owner if used as, to my knowledge, your local police department has a record of gun owners in their jurisdiction. I only say that about those who actually you know, kill people, but seems knives are the thing here where that’s concerned.

No, it was awhile ago. I still lived in Nashville in a pretty sh!tty neighborhood. My across the hall neighbor was a meth cooker/dealer and one night when I was taking my dog out I accidentally opened my door when he was out there and i surprised him. He surprised me with a .22. It went through my shoulder but only because I turned away as he shot. If I had stood still he would have killed me.

In that situation there was no time for me to do anything. Even if I had been armed it happened too fast. There was always stuff happening in that neighborhood, but I was never scared and I do not own a gun. I feel that in a neighborhood like that one, if it is known you have a gun, you become a target. No gun, no problems. The lady next door had guns and her place was broken in to on the regular.

Just my 2 cents. Guns are not for me. I don't care for them, Don't care if people have them with restrictions.

At least until all the ammo is gone. One thing I've learned from my stepdud is that unless you can fill your own, you are going to find it difficult to aquire any after the first couple of months have passed because everyone will have already raided it all. And probably used most of it by that point too. People seem to think the stuff grows on trees or something, but believe it or not, it can be hard to come by. Plus, one has to find the right kind for the gun they are using, or both become useless. Its funny how people forget little details like that. Or the fact that in a self-defense situation, the person who is ready first is usually the one who wins- not neccessarily the one with the most "powerful" weapon.

What really bothers and disappoints me is the gun-shaming that has been happening. Every time there's any sort of shooting, I see 10-20 crazies on Facebook talking about, "If you're a gun owner or an NRA member, UNFRIEND ME RIGHT NOW!!! You people are part of the problem!" I acquiesce of course. The articles that sprout up, the apologists... it's insane, and appears to get a little worse every time, to the point that the actual gun owners and such are afraid to even say anything back anymore.

You'd still want one around. You really want to roll the dice that no one else on the planet has a gun, or aren't coming to raid you for your stuff (or your life, or body, or worse) while you hold your butter knife?

There's no rational discourse left to be had regarding firearms.

Seriously, I'm just looking out for the Good Guy With The Gun who accidentally shoots an innocent bystander. Because I can tell you right now, I'm suing the ever living bajebus out of anyone who shoots me, either intentionally or not. Medical consts are high, and even people with insurance have to declare bankruptcy to cover them sometimes. You'd better believe I'm not footing that bill alone.
Thats why I shoot to kill
lol
Thats one thing that scares me though are these horror stories of people defending themselves/homes from intruders by shooting them and getting sued by the assailant.

But if a gun owner wrongfully shoots someone intentionally or not then they should have to pay. You are completely right Plastron medical bills are ridiculously expensive, I was buried in medical bills at one point.
