Posted by: Gs325jcbd

The Minigun is a deadly gun which can fire up to 166 times per second. They are legal in the United States. Should they remain legal or become illegal for civilian use.

  • As I said in my post on Weapons III, I'm a firm believer in the second amendment. So long as they get the proper training, get a background check, and abide by other such laws, I'm fine with them having one.

  • Miniguns are cool, but also so ludicrously expensive that they aren't much of a threat.

  • I'd love to own every weapon on every video game. Could someone please tell me where I can get every weapon on every video game?

  • Who said anything about needing one? Just because you can drive a car over the speed limit won't mean you will. Same applies to weaponry (Which isn't even weaponry until used as such).

  • Who the hell needs a minigun?!

  • A minigun would be more of a con than a benefit. Also, I believe it is far too dangerous as a weapon to be used by civilians.

  • Wait. A Gatling "minigun"? What on Earth do you intend to defend from with that? Oh wait. I understand if you're a revolutionary and "defending" is not at the top of your agenda.

It is already illegal. From http://www.armamentsales.com/miniguns.htm "THIS GUN CANNOT BE SOLD TO THE CIVILIAN MARKET."

Well, I guess this is a case of making it legal or keeping it illegal.

To respond to you, Comrade, its everything about protecting ourselves against a corrupt government. The founding fathers created the second amendment in order to ensure that the people of the United States would be protected from the government should it become corrupt. We currently live in a world in which our government wouldn't turn on it; but with the way things are going, that might not be true forever. Corruption is growing in politics through many methods, primarily through the ridiculously large amounts of money that have been thrown at politicians. In order to protect the populous from a government that could one day turn on it, I support allowing people to have most weapons. I am also a strong believer in creating laws on how you can get them though. I am a huge supporter of background checks and required training. I also am a strong believer in holding people accountable for any crimes committed with their own weapons. Laws like that need to be instated to ensure that the general populous are kept safe from people that would otherwise use their weapons improperly. And just as an FYI, I won't be able to respond for around an hour or two, but I'd be happy to discuss the issue with you.

We don't fight wars they they did. We have a army made up of our own population. We have a system where if things are interrupted, damage is done. We don't need to do Civil War, civil disobedience will already do enough damage. If people can get such weapons, what about drug gangs and the such? Now they have legal access to heavy weapons that can shred a house in seconds.

I don't think we should let our current system continue, the system is against the American worker and small business in the first place.
