That scares me too! Who really needs that sort of fire power in the home? My Dad's a sports shooter, and has never felt the need to have something like this, even when it was legal in Australia to have this sort of weapondry.

Unfortunately, they live on the southernmost border of Arizona which has been dealing with some terrifying drug wars the last few years. combine that with the VAST open spaces, non-existent border patrol, and some less than legal immigrants and it becomes understandable why someone would want this kind of firepower.

It's not my kind of thing, but I get it.

No, I remember. I just don't see the correlation, that's all.

Fair enough. Just reminds me how lucky we are here in Australia.

Can we delete these posts? It's political, and I want to respond to this lone phantom guy, but I also don't want to get banned. So can we just agree that what he is saying is inflammatory and get rid of it please mods? If not, I'd like permission to reply to his statements.

How am I being political? I'm just stating that I'm glad I don't have to worry about some of the things people in the US may have to worry about. If you want to respond to me respond, it's not that difficult, there's PMs for a reason. RGTFanatic and I are friends, and he knows that I'm not having a go at him, his family or his country.

I could care less about your relationship with ryc. I'm speaking about how your slamming my country for our second amendment. This is why Jemsite doesn't allow politics, because we're all half a world away, and you don't understand the way other countries work, obviously. Don't slam my country. I'm not going to pm you either.

This is another example. The ar-15 is no more powerful than half of the hunting rifles around. It's all propaganda. I suggest you educate yourself before stating that an ar-15 had an enormous amount of "firepower" in comparison to other weapons.
