Cool What % of American pop would have to revolt against the gov't to stand a chance??????

Friend and I are debating whether assault rifles should be legal.

Government wouldn't stand a chance against armed civilians if it came to that again


I'd LOVE to hear you and your buddies tell me what an "assault rifle" is first.
Second, Id love to hear your justification for wanting to ban them.

Honestly

The fact that assault weapons have already been banned tells me your debate is off to a great start

The top serial killers in the last century all killed more people than any of the recent events, none used guns...

The top mass murder events in the us in the last century are in the 100's + none used guns..

Hmm.

The percent actively involved and the percent in support of a revolution would be two very different numbers I imagine. It would have to be at least 30-40% in support.

Edit: Just read Jonjon's link.. guess 10-20% is all it takes.

both of us agree that gun control isn't the answer to recent tragedies... it was just kind of a side-argument.

You're debating if assault weapons should be banned, right?
Tell me why they should (ignoring the fact that they already are)

I think the argument that they are a defense against gov't is moot now-a-days. It's a straw-man argument for people who just want to have keep them.

We don't allow civilians to own weaponized tanks... so where do you draw the line? Our lines are in different areas... unless you think civilians should be allowed to own weaponized tanks... I mean, we gotta be able to defend ourselves, amiright?

Ah, there's nothing new in this thread, same silly stuff
Yes, just because a gun is black and not wood grained makes it
Completely different. The color is literally the only difference

No offense, but educate yourself before trying to discuss this

does the 3% still apply today? does it take into account that the present day US military is vastly superior in armament?
