    Actually th Boston Tea Party was orchestrated by disgruntled tea smugglers after the Brits drastically lowered the tea tax (to help East India Co.), making official imported tea cheaper than smuggled tea

    Read before you post, please. Where am I calling him a redneck? Redneck is a general term and I am using it as such, the "Rednecks" around here are the kind that I would be afraid of for my safety and my family's safety.

    Stinky: He is not talking about the 1770's, he is talking about now and the Tea party movement, Wiki it.

    Ostrich: This will go nowhere I can see that. I was importing my opinion into this thread.

    Oh and Crude, where are you getting your news from, please say none of the televised news stations....bleh.

    Well.. being perfectly honest here..

    I get annoyed when people say they "need" an automatic gun..

    I really don't care if they have them or not.. however, when people say its a "necessity" i get a little annoyed...

    I don't care if you want one just to have one.. or want one "incase".. but, lets not say that we "need" automatic weapons to fend off house cats.

    I don't know where anyone said they need a full auto firearm. In fact, the only person I saw saying need an automatic in the same sentence was the person you quoted who was trying to make it all seem silly so of course they're going to speak in absolutes to strengthen their stance on the topic.

    Lol.

    I have heard people push for automatic weapons as a "need" in real life and the person I quoted mentioned it.

    with all that said.. I <3 mah boomstick.

    The .38 special and 22 aren't neglected either.

    You can buy automatic weapons if you feel like going through a mountain of paperwork and background checks, then once you're finished with all that, be willing to spend tens of thousands of dollars on them.

    got a few more but didn't feel like draggin out the whole arsenal :D

    and to those who ask "who needs all those guns?" i ask who needs all those baseball cards? who needs all those cars? The point is we have so many because we collect them. When I'm holding a rifle that 70 years ago kept my grandfather alive... it gives me a good feeling. Maybe you dont, but to each his/her own. A lot of peoples firearms have stories behind them.

    In most states just need approval by the local chief of police or sheriff who does a background check then another background check by the ATF. Pay a 200.00 tax stamp per suppressor. Fairly easy process.

    Unless you life in Montana who passed the Firearms Freedom Act, build your own suppressor with no background check as long as you are a law abiding citizen which means you can pass a background check to purchase a gun.

    Why would you feel threatened by that? At my tea party rally, I and most others had their guns, as most here do everyday anyway. I have mine all day everyday, work, home, shopping, etc...many people are allowed to carry a knife and do so everyday, are you feeling threatened then? law abiding citizens are not the ones to fear. It is the criminals.

    yes it is lol 9.5 pounds, but somehow it holds level pretty steady. Balanced very well. And it packs a mean punch, semi-automatic .30-06 can take down pretty much anything you throw at it :D

    Our right to bear arms is directly correlated to the fact we have never been invaded by foreign armies. Who would want to attack a country where there are enough guns for everyone to go Rambo
