OK, let's take this down a notch.
Pythius, Welcome to the forum! We're happy to have you on board as a new member and invite your comments and spirited debate within the guidelines set forth in the rules. But as another post suggested, let's move the RKBA commentary to the appropriate sub-forum and save this one for the New Member introductions.
Although the horse has already left the corral, both the OP and the rest of the community are admonished to keep this thread on track and on the topic of welcoming a new member. Any subsequent debate of RKBA and Second Amendment issues here, and this thread will get locked down.

Welcome from North Carolina, the California state of the south...Taxes, laws, fees and all. I know of several Yankees who moved here and later stated that they didn't move far enough south. Some stay others move on to Florida.
The police are not there to protect you from crime, they are there to arrest the guy after the crime has been committed, assuming they find him. It is your responsibility to protect yourself and your family.
Welcome from South Carolina...
Sometimes in life you have to stand your ground. It's a hard lesson to learn and even most adults don't get it, but in the end only I can be responsible for my life. If faced with any type of adversity, only I can overcome it. Waiting for someone else to take responsibility is a long fruitless wait.
Welcome to DefensiveCarry.com from Olympia, WA; in the Great Pacific Northwest!
Only two defining forces have ever died for you.....
1. Jesus Christ.
2. The American Soldier, Sailor, Airman, Marine, and Coast Guardsman.
One died for your soul, the other for your freedom!

I'm originally from New Jersey. My views on many things have changed a lot since I lived back East.
I think we need as many gun owners in New York and New Jersey as we can get.
Oh, and a 10/22 was one of my first firearms (bought it at the same time as my first handgun). It's a great fun rifle!
I'm glad to hear there is one more person who legally owns a firearm in NYC.
Welcome from Wisconsin, the 49th state to allow concealed carry! When our CCW law was passed last Novemebr my neighbor bought 3 guns in the same week - a full-sized, a compact & a sub-compact. That gave him the choice to hacve one for several occasions.
