    Possibly, but there's so many guns out there it wouldn't prevent people getting them, regardless of age or legislation

    I think it was a Family Guy episode, flashback to the writing of the constitution

    "There, that's done. Any issues before we sign it guys?"

    "that part about the right to bear arms, should we clarify that do you think?"

    "No it's clear enough. Everyone has the right to own a pair of bear's arms, that's the only way to interpret it"

    ;)

    Maybe to be in the spirit of the constitution they should make it so itís only legal to have a firearm if you are part of an organized local militia. Such a militia could then have stringent entry requirements including a psychological evaluation.

    Of course there is no way most gun loving Americans would go for this but its more in the spirit of what the right to bear arms was intended to achieve.

    Well, then prepare for a geriatric revolution! :)

    Seriously though, what would it take for the US to come to terms with the equation:
    More guns = more gun crimes ?

    I'd love to see that! But you wouldn't, everybody who owns a gun will continue to be able to own a gun and buy more of them if they wish, it's only people that have never owned a gun that wouldn't be allowed to.

    Interesting thought, but that would just create an impossible situation...
    What if your gun gets stolen?
    You would be responsible even if its miles away...Naturally you could report the theft of the gun immediately, but so could someone who's gun is not stolen...

    Well, the point was, if you own a lethal weapon, its your responsibility to make sure it doesnt get stolen. You can buy gun safes and all that caper.

    @Fat Boy:
    In relation to consoles and such, even guns break down...If they suspend all sales from now on the number would slowly diminish...Plus all these kids would have a really difficult time finding guns...

    @nickthegun:
    Yeah..."But why have your gun in a safe?" would the average american response be I think...
    It's just a fundamental issue of them believing guns are a normal thing in society...

    The response would be that a gun in a gun safe has no home protection value whatsoever

    Unless...the gun safe was shaped like a gun.

    Was it Chris Rock who said that they should just raise the cost of ammunition? A few thousand dollars for a bullet...
    Quite a funny bit

    But that brings a workaround solution, they could just ban the sale of bullets...Wouldn't be against the constitution as they could still bear arms...

    Though that would lead to people making their own ammo...Yet again the risk group of pubescent children would not be able to go on killing sprees...

    You could put that inside a bigger safe shaped like a cannon.

    No-one would fuck with your house then.

    Put your cannon safe inside an AT-AT safe.

    But then you'd need a gun to protect your AT-AT safe...

    @Smoothpete:
    Damn...Well then the only option left to them is rewriting the constitution...Which will never happen...

    shit man, if you had an at at safe i'd try steal it

    maybe with a snow speeder, or i could hire ewoks with some ropes
  • Deleted user 15 February 2008 11:48:33
    First thing you'd do is modify it with sharper legs. Not having it getting tripped up with pesky cables.

    and paint it a different colour, something that blends in with it's surroundings

    and since it'd be in america you could probably hook up some kind if anti-aircraft weapons at angles the at ats couldn't shoot from before, those head only guns were all fine when you were facing a static enemy but if someone sneaks up behind you're at at you're fucked

    But that armour's too thick for blasters!
    (You know, except when it fell over, then suddenly the armour became thin)

    They should have taped a load of lightsabers to the legs. Would have looked really cool too.

    so we all agree that an at at safe is not the way to go when you want to secure a gun for home defense, if anything it increases the risk your home might be attacked
  • Deleted user 2 June 2008 13:25:05
    Yeah, they're a bugger when someone breaks in and you have to shout STOP WHILE I GET MY GUN OUT OF THE SAFE.

    plus if you were robbing a house, the safe is kind of high on your list of things to nick.

    you would be better off just watching Home Alone and the Saw movies then combining the two for lethal burglar murdering.

    if you were doing that you'd need somewhere to store your bow and arrows, like a gun safe but for medieval ranged weaponry

    My mate managed to scare a couple of burglars off by running down the stairs buck-naked and fully erect. True story.

    Mm. He was rutting with his lady, heard a clatter and came charging down to see a pair of 'bokkers there staring at him. They dived out the window they'd bust.

    Worth bearing in mind.
