Right to bear arms

OK, if three burgulars hear a shotgun being pumped by me, and they run behind the wood pile, in hopes that I will hold up in a bathroom or room and try to call the cops so they can continue ransacking my home, Im not going to put suppressing fire on them from the window. They obviously don't have weapons, or are too scared to use them, so I would go behind the wood pile and point my shotgun up their ***. Not lay down suppressing fire, scaring the crap out of my neighbors, and giving the police more reason to take me as the burglar. 3 guys that are being held at gunpoint with no weapons, are less likely to be shot, than the gun standing over them with a shotgun.

Providing cover fire and clearing buildings is excellent work for an automatic rifle. But what does a civilian have need of clearing buildings and covering fire? If I want to clear a building, I'll take a shotgun and a pistol. Shotgun because close quarters and shotguns work great together.

As for the three groups needing automatic fire power and we don't. What are you ever going to use it for. They use it to protect us and put threats away. That is their job, not ours. Let them handle it. They have training to use those weapons, you don't. License doesn't mean crap. Juts shows that you can hold a weapon and not shoot yourself. Doesn't teach you the tactics and strategy that makes them so efficent.

AS for deciding who can own what, no I really can't answer that question. That is better for someone else. However, the government does have the right to restrict which guns are manufactured. They do have the right to decide which weapons we are alllowed to defend ourselves with. If they didn't, then you'd be able to buy a nuke at Wal-mart.

If three burglars, hear a shotgun being pumped by me, and they run behind a wood pile or some type of   obstacle in hopes that I won't come out and fill them with shot, I will not and it seems incredibly stupid of me to lay down suppressing fire from the window with a shotgun or an automatic rifle. Im going to go up and shoot them, that or point my gun menacingly at them, till the cops show up.

And the three groups needing automatic weapons and we don't is in and of itself explanatory. Its their job to protect us. They can't do that when we have weapons just like them trying to solve our problems, out of revenge or malice. They don't want people that take the law into their own hands. Thats called vigilante, which gets you arrested. 
 
Licenses btw just show that you can hold a gun and not kill yourself in the process. That and cleaning it. Not showing you the tactics and strategy that come with it and how efficent it is when used right. Keeping in mind that the three groups most of the time are keeping cool heads while firing these weapons. Training. Civilians, tend not to have cool heads, when someone is attacking or robbing them.

The job of the police is to enforce private property and enforce the rule of capital on the poor. Also to enforce racioclass segregation of neighborhoods. A perfect example of this is the fact that prosti.tutes are shoved into poor/minority areas even though rich whites use them more. This allows rich/whites to lie about their "purity". Bottom line as a radical I want Aks because the cops have them.

Human that is exactly the world I wanted someone to say. "Want". Because one person has something you think you should have it as well. Since I respect you being a radical, then Ill respect your opinion.

Meant to say since, I respect you I can respect your decision. Other radicals just blow up in my face. without reason. You give solid evidence enough for me to respect your opinion.

Human:
 
Hmm, I'm not sure whether regulating ammo would be any easier than regulating guns considering, like I mentioned, guns and ammo already exist.  People already have plenty of unregistered weapons, they would just lie and hide them.  
 
However, I think that existing gun shops should be forced to regulate guns and/or ammo a lot more strictly than they do.  Teenagers and kids are bullied on a daily basis, combine that with easy access to firearms and you get all kinds of horrifying incidents. 
 
Also Human6, (why do you have 6 next to your name too, -_-) I used to go to a very bad school with lots of gang incidents, however the cops and SRO officers weren't corrupt or anything and they always made me feel safer when I could see them.  
 
My problem with Anarchy is that instead of "The rich have power over the poor" it instead becomes "The strong have power over the weak", at least people with disabilities and naturally weak can still attain power in Capitalism.

The problem with gun regulation is that nothing would change. People would still have guns, only less good people would have guns and more bad people would have guns. I'd still have to duck every time I heard shots fired at home, which is at least once a day, and I'd still be in danger walking home at night. So yeah, I do have an unregistered gun, a model 586 smith and wesson revolver that I got from my cousin so I can protect myself, and no authority figure will ever take my gun away from me, because it's my right to carry a weapon.
