Well done. Articulate and concise, directly on point.
I never felt the need until politicians started saying I shouldn't have one. There won't ever be a day I need it more than the day they come to take it away from me.
@retired badge 1 I never NEED anything until someone tells me I can't have it! :rofl:
My philosophy: What I will never understand is the lessons we learn, relearn, and learn once more in dealing with insurgents. A raghead with an IED is a formidable enemy. The British learned that lesson in 1776, forgot it, and learned it again in 1812. Seems politicians here just have no concept of what things can be like in the real world, and a case of absolute ignorance when it comes to history and the indomitable nature of freedom loving Americans.Quote:

Short answer: they don't. It isn't about minimal "needs". You don't need a plasma tv. You don't need an Apple watch. You don't need a 3,000 sq ft house. This is about the right to self preservation. The line is drawn at "shall not be infringed".
But Noir says it with great context. He also has a well done series about the role of politicians in the rot of inner cities.
Mr. Colion Noir is an excellent spokesman for the RKBA. Well done.
It's the "Bill of RIGHTS", not the "Bill of Needs"
This is worth repeating:

Since then I've had a few, but prefer the Mini-14 over the AR primarily because it feels better in my hands even though the Mini-14 isn't as accurate as any of the AR's I've owned.
Ultimately, it is not about needs. The Bill Of Rights places limits on our government. It does not grant rights to the people.
You need a gun. You want an AR15. Needs and wants are quite different. I do not need an AR15, and I do not want one. It is an excellent weapon and anyone who wants one, and can legitimately acquire one, should be able to do so without hindrance. Personally I want an M3A1 with the 8 inch barrel. Now that is a CQB weapon that would be superb for home defense.
I ran across that video the other night...I thought the young man hit some good points.
Unfortunately, the media and many politicians have convinced a lot of people that if you own an AR or AK that you're going to go on a shooting rampage and that those weapons are for battlefield use only. Considering how many AR's and AK's are out there they should be asking why aren't there mass shootings all day every day. A lot of people don't think for themselves. I don't know how we're going to get the message out that guns aren't the problem. I doubt the news media will ever present an unbiased news report. I think there's some people that do "man/woman on the street" interviews to show people the error of their "knowledge". Maybe more billboard presentations? Colion is a good spokesperson but it's unlikely he'll get his message out to the uninformed.
And the Bill of Rights exists to place limits upon our government!
"Congress shall make no law..."
"...shall not be infringed."
Etc. Etc. Etc.

There are a lot of good points that he makes and that commentors here are making....but....the logic will not reach the other side. Either post 2020 or post 2024.....we will face 2A challenges.
