    For the pigs around here in Texas, I'd rather have a semi-automatic rifle.

    There is no insistence on "absolute" gun rights.

    Sure seems that way. Civilians openly carrying around guns is outright frightening to me.

    That's not absolute, and most are content with less than that.

    In some U.S. states it is legal for open carry of handguns in holsters, and concealed carry. From the video clips I see on Youtube, civilian concealed carry has prevented many armed robberies and harming of innocent people.

    I actually own a gun - a semi automatic handgun. I’ve got no problems with people owning guns. I simply think we are way too irresponsible in our screening.

    Not in my town. He knows his role as a public servant and he and his deputies pretty much stay in their own lane and obey the law.

    If you Live elsewhere, such as in Leon Valley Texas, however, That Sheriff there IS A Tyrant who makes up his own laws, and you'd better have at least a platoon or even a full company of Soldiers at your disposal to protect your family from him and his deputies' tyrannical overreach.

    New Zealand is not Texas. People in NZ want to live quiet, simple lives - in peace with their families. It should not be possible for a complete stranger to arrive from another country, purchase guns and ammo for no particular reason, and then massacre people in a place of worship. Obviously the perpetrator found some kind of loophole. They are trying to close it. It is that simple.

    Prayers and best wishes for the people in Christchurch.

    If we had anyone like that down here, putting a couple of red-back spiders on his toilet seat would sort him out!

    You stumble across a hog in tall grass/weeds and he decides to charge you better have an AR in .308 or larger or you will be trampled and maybe much worse.

    Until they do, at least there are these quiet, simple, peaceful New Zealanders who have vowed to protect the Mosques for Friday prayers:

    Biker gang will guard New Zealand Muslims at mosque during Friday prayers

    And the wild boar roam many states in the north and south.

    I guess if one is brave and likes close encounters a 44 hand cannon would do. :)

    If that attacker drove up and saw that group out front instead of the scene he did see, there would not be those 50 dead innocents today. And there will not be any more dead this Friday from any potential copycat, except maybe the copycat....
