    Belgium recently melted down over 22,000 firearms into 60 tons of recycled steel.

    Half of the firearms were collected from members of the Belgian public. The other half were police weapons that are no longer used.

    Carina van Cauter, governor of East Flanders, said in a statement: “The result is impressive: 22,457 firearms have disappeared from our society… It is obviously positive for the security of our citizens that these weapons are no longer in use.”

    Praying the eschatology forum doesn't catch wind of this.

    I've never been impressed with 'safety'... It's far overrated IMHO.

    Well, Belgium can get away with that, since they really don't need to worry about their own defense. If anybody ever attacks them, they have good old Uncle Sugar to go to war on their behalf.

    I'm sure that every gun control advocate in Europe gets down on their knees every night and thanks God for NATO. :D

    What does national defense have to do with an armed citizenry? Do you think a group of citizens with shotguns and hunting rifles can resist an invading, postmodern army?

    Oh... well... obviously.

    She probably has her eyes on forks next - as a positive step to ending obesity.

    Good there is a shortage of ammo, less guns, more ammo and you can even make more ammo out of the steel they melted.

    Sure - backed by $10 billion per year in arms shipments from the USSR and China, plus logistical and intelligence support.

    ....and even then, after they actually tried to go toe-to-toe with modern armies during the Tet offensive in 1968, they were mostly wiped out.

    You're right we need better weapons. Unfortunately all the 50 cals seem to be out of stock... As far as training there about 18 million veterans and of course 1.5 million active duty. I think they could at least give an "invading postmodern army" pause.
