Yes, well said.  Everyone carries on about how difficult it would be to take away the guns in the US but if corporate citizens acted in this way then it would be a lot easier.  Sure there would be a black market but eventually they would be gone.

However the gun and ammunition sale is a significant part of the American economy, as is the manufacture of all armaments. For a country founded on freedom of religion they sure sell a lot of things able to kill off themselves and the rest of the world. How christian

Yeah, so many mass shootings back then. Just give me a minute or so to reload...

Of course we have similar policies in place in the UK.   A lot of our supermarkets will not sell eggs or flour to teenagers at Halloween!

Why, is it the only place that sells?   Good to see some social responsibility.

.303????????????????? That was WW2.

The .303 was referenced in the post I replied to.  It is an excellent bolt action rifle with a long military history, but not optimized for home defense.

 

How is a high capacity semi-automatic rifle with the penetrating power to endanger neighbors behind doors and walls a superior form of "gangster" defense?  How often do such gangster raids occur?

Vietnam. And guess who won?

I specified conflicts since the end of the cold war because during the cold war serious conflicts always drew in serious outside interference. 

 

Forty years since the collapse of the Soviet Union should provide examples of armed civilians defending themselves against tyranny.  I'm not aware of any such examples.  However I am aware of examples of governments using a few hotheads with guns to justify defending their tyrannical rule by unleashing their military on protesters.

 

The Second Amendment no longer defends against tyranny.  The First Amendment does.  Dictators are more afraid of protesters holding smart phones than guns.

The drug dealers and criminals are terrified of corporate citizens,what a great idea.

Interesting that when the same tactics as 1776 were used by the Viet Cong in their country, Americans cried foul.

What the Viet conf used mass shootings against the British in vietnam?

The right to ho!d and hear arms cannot be infringed. The sale and usage can. Opportunist purchases will be restricted, whereas a planned purchase can still go ahead. The stuff is off display, but available to buy.

 

To defend self, home and state. Hallelujah brothers. Praise the Lord and pass the ammunition.

And keep your pecker hard and your powder dry.

Actually it was terrorists and forced from a neighbouring country going against a legitimate government.

You must read some strange history books or do you get your history from Hollywood?

Re your quote,a .303 Lee Enfield has far more penetration than semi auto "assault weapons" such as the ar 15 that's .223 or the ak47 that's 7.62x 39 as do most American hunting rifles.

In NZ we used SLR 7.62 rifles, but later started using M16 5.56mm rifle. While the M16 was nicer to carry being lighter, it was apparent on the firing range that the M16 was not as effective as the SLR when it came to penetration.

There will be drug dealers and criminals long after guns are gone.  Most countries still have them but no guns.
