I consider myself very rightwing, but I honestly can't rationally justify why assault weapons being legal is a good thing. Doesn't it just make it easier for terrorists to kill large numbers of people quickly? I would never advocate the nonsense they have going on in Europe with confiscating spoons and such bullshit, but why does any person need an assault rifle, even for self-defense?

No, because terrorists don't care if assault rifles are legal or not - they never acquire them legally anyway. AK47s aren't legal in France but look at that.

Besides, why should it be OK to restrict non-criminal activity in order to prevent criminal activity? Do we ban cars to stop hit and run drivers? Do we ban alcohol to stop drink-driving and anti-social behaviour? Do we ban lighters to stop people smoking drugs?

In general, the jist of having a weapon boils down to being your own advocate.

Think about it for a second....

There is no one aside from yourself that is more invested in your continued existence.

Since this is true, you must be your own advocate.

How you carry that responsibility is literally the difference between life and death.

"Terrorism" rarely happens and statistically kills a low amount of people. It only strikes fear in your tiny brain because the media shoves it in your face and tells you to be afraid and listen to the government. Hammers and cars kill more people than guns do. "Assault" weapons are a fraction of gun deaths. Banning them solves nothing other than taking citizens' rights away.

>Gun laws sure stopped that happening in France

What happened in France happened because of weak borders and over immigration. Without those negative influences, its hard to justify why the gun control wouldn't have worked. Obviously, the borders are a bigger priority, which is why I'm voting for Donald Trump. But if you have the border situation under control, then what is wrong with taking an extra precaution against the few that might slip through?

THIS
SIMPLY WATCH OP OR ANY ANTI GU. DISCUSSION THE FACT GUN DEATHS ARE LESS THAN SIMPLE SHIT LIKE HAMMERS AND CARS IS IGNORED LIKE CANCER AND NEVER RECONCILED
>>
The usual suspects are:

1. I can do whatever the fuck I want, fuck society, come and take them blah blah blah.

These people don't deserve your time, and are in fact the reason why police exist and have the power to enforce laws on people rather than just rationally debate with them about why they ought to comply.

2. To resist a government

These people at least have the beginnings of an argument. It falls apart when you realise two things. Firstly, no rebel group or army in the entire history of the planet has ever had a hard time getting small arms. Small arms are ludicrously easy to obtain because every police station, armoury, or gun store will have hundreds of them just waiting for your rebel gangs. Secondly, small arms are just one part of a war. Things like MANPADS and ATGMs are easily as essential as small arms to actually fight and win a war. Nobody owns these things, and you will never be in a situation where you can get access to these things but not small arms. So small arms to fight a gubbermint is nowhere near as compelling as some people believe it is, even if it isn't completely wrong.

3. It's fun and it doesn't hurt anyone.

This argument actually depends the most on the second part, and it's case-specific. If somebody can prove that their specific regime of gun control will minimise all harm while allowing for assault weapons ownership - whatever that means - then it's a watertight argument. But does such a regime exist? Certainly I've never seen it.

It's a complex issue and you only ever hear simple answers. Banning them isn't sensible unless you've considered all the options, but absolute unfettered freedumbs is equally imprudent.

Yes, because a Jew with a rifle would be much less dead than a Jew without when 10 SS troops come for him.

And weapons are notoriously hard to find during a fucking war, amirite?

Your "BUT THE JEWS" moral panic doesn't work on /pol/, and you should know that. The Jews died because they DIDN'T fight, not because they COULDN'T fight.

Actually, those amendments don't exist in Australia so suqq my diqq. Furthermore, quoting amendments is not an argument it is a cop-out. If you cannot justify something without retreating to "the law says" then you've only provided an argument for why the law ought not to say.

>especially not with Fabian tactics/insurgency
Ah yes, the sacred cow that is insurgency.

Insurgencies are infinitely less effective than mustering an actual army and fighting a conventional war, and people only engage in them because they have no choice. The fundamental goal of an insurgent is to stop being an insurgent and be a soldier instead, because a soldier might actually win the war when all an insurgent can do is hope to not lose it yet. Heavier weapons are essential to forming a conventional army.

Fabian tactics are highly contextual, not an "i win" button.

>See the Clive Bundy Ranch
A prime example of the failures of insurgency. Bundy never won that fight, he just postponed his loss. The feds will still be there in 20 years pursuing their agenda because there is literally nothing that Bundy or anyone else can do to make them go away. Bundy and the militia are trapped there forever, in the limbo of "we haven't lost yet, but things aren't going to get better".

>>59966634
I'm impressed that you actually think you've made a point.

Go back and read my post. I never said that Jews couldn't fight, I said that they didn't fight. If the Jew is so fucking amazing with his rifle then why is he a neutered baby without it? Why does he find it IMPOSSIBLE to get one in any other way than a lawful process? Especially since, as people often chorus, criminals can always always always regardless of gun control always get guns if they want to?

The entire pro-gun argument is a network of logical inconsistencies because it does not stem from a single viewpoint it is a mishmash of responses thought up on the spot and then hopelessly bent to try and fit together so that they don't blow themselves the fuck out.

The only pro-gun positions I respect are the principled ones, where guns are a God-given right and fuck the consequences. I respect those views because they are internally consistent and genuinely held, but that doesn't mean I agree with them.

Statistically speaking, there is no problem with "assault weapons" (anti-gunner definition) like the AR-15/AK clones. Actual homicides with them are rare to the point of statistical insignificance.

"Mass shootings" are also insignificant when you look up the real numbers. I can see why the mass media drama surrounding them would make people think otherwise but they really aren't something you rationally should worry about.

The vast majority of gun crimes... I forget the actual number, if you want it search for DOJ gun crime statistics, but something like 80% or more.... are 1 on 1 shootings with handguns.

If your goal was to curtail gun violence, then your priority should be handguns. Note that it isn't... and I can't believe no anti-gun legislator has looked up these numbers. Makes you question what the real goal is.

Irrelevant. That's the point. To that worldview, the consequences literally don't matter. Guns are a right, and that's the end of the discussion.

>Unequivocally false.
Yes, insurgencies, nto conventional armies, are the unequivocal and self-evident superior choice, so obvious even anon from 4chan can see it. This is why states all over the world have completely dissolved their standing armies in favour of a bunch of poorly trained and ill-equipped angry middle-aged men who may or may not turn up to muster.

Oh wait that never happened because it's fucking retarded and so are you.

>but whether or not we should be able to
Not being able to stockpile small arms will not significantly reduce your chances, because small arms are not hard to get, and not enough. You will never be in a situation where you have plentiful access to other necessities, like MANPADS, but not small arms.

>He could win
No, he cannot. His best case is not losing long enough to die of natural causes. The federal government will never ever leave him alone for as long as he or they exist.

This is what it means to be an insurgent.

The only thing is that insurgents have no ability to actually fight the government. They are Bundy, clinging onto life for just another day. To actually defeat the enemy you need to take and hold territory, and that requires a standing army. It requires you to be able to roll up to an oil field or whatever strategic location, kick the other guy out, and then stay there even when they come back to fight you for it. You can't do that if all you've got is grandad's rifle.
>>59967621
>An insurgency could work, and the possibility is worth preserving
An insurgency will never work without heavy weapons, and history shows this in the way that every single insurgency ever in the last 30 years has either stormed arsenals (Syria, Libya), been supplied by foreign powers (Ukraine), or failed.

You will never have heavy weapons but not small arms.

To the extent that this is true, people should be able to own heavier weapons. And in the US, while we can't own everything, we can own artillery and aircraft.

Also we have state militias which could supply those, and who's to say that some government personnel wouldn't help in the revolt? George Washington was a british officer.

In every case the citizenry should be able to overthrow their government.

>Fabian tactics give the insurgent a huge advantage over a standing army
Then why do we still have standing armies? You can't answer this simple fucking question because it blows you the fuck out. Fabian tactics are contextual, only useful in limited circumstances, and most importantly they were pursued by one standing army against another.

>which is why with less funding and armament, the Vietcong and Taliban were able to repel their respective invaders
And the Boers got absolutely blown the fuck out, the Vietcong were forced to sign a peace treaty at gunpoint because they didn't win at all militarily but the US were too fucking cowardly to enforce their own peace treaty, and the Taliban STILL doesn't control significant parts of Iraq even after the US up and fucking left.

>Do you expect me to take seriously that you believe they would have been better off simply forming standing armies and fighting in an organized way?
They all tried that, Iraq had a large standing army and the NVA preceded the Vietcong. They only resorted to insurgency after they had been thoroughly defeated, and insurgency never delivered them a victory it just allowed them to drag out their loss until America gave up. Other nations with stronger will have defeated insurgency. Like, for example, the Boer Wars.

>Or the Americans in the Revolutionary War?
Got absolutely destroyed until they formed an army. They even had to implement conscription.

>or the Japs in WW2?
Their only hope was destroying the American pacific fleet. Hard to do that with nothing but a fucking rifle.

THEN WHY IS IT SO FUCKING IMPORTANT THAT YOU BE ABLE TO OWN A HUNDRED ASSAULT RIFLES?

Do you not realise that you are contradicting your own fucking argument? There is NEVER a situation where you have all the heavy weapons you need but not enough small arms. That's my point. That's why the "muh tyrannical government" justification of the second amendment is a crock of shit.

Nobody's taking away your ability to fight the government because you don't need your fucking arsenal of machineguns to do that. Well, that's not true. You do need an arsenal of machineguns, but you also need MANPADS and ATGMs, and if you can get MANPADS and ATGMs you will also be able to get your machineguns. If you can't get your MANPADS and ATGMs all the machineguns in the world will not save you.

>He can (and has) preserve(d) his liberty/property for his natural life. That is winning.
You have a fucking terrible definition of winning.

Winning means final victory. It means enforcing your terms on your enemies and being able to stop fighting and go home, secure in the knowledge that you are safe and your goals are met.

Bundy cannot do this. The second he stops fighting the feds will come in and fuck him right up the ass. He is locked into eternal conflict with them because he cannot beat them, and they will never tire or harassing him.

Bundy is the quintessential insurgent. He is totally fucking screwed unless help comes from elsewhere. All he can do is hold on and pray.
>>
The necessity to be able to overthrow your government if they're shitty aside,
1. Gun control does not work
2. We should err on the side of liberty even if it did
3. Gun ownership is a good thing for personal protection
4. accidental deaths by firearms are not a serious issue
5. Certain rights are worth sacrifice
6. Wanting to ban only assault weapons is arbitrary considering they account for much less crime and death than 'less scary' handguns and most suicide is done with shotguns (almost any variety will do)

You have zero understanding of strategy or history and think that because you saw a bunch of Vietnam movies and have opinions about Iraq you're qualified to declare insurgency as the quintessential path to victory when literally every single person employed as a professional to win wars agrees that conventional armies are more effective.

The reason they are called conventional armies is because they're uniformly adopted as the way to fight, and that's because they are the best way to fight.

>dude just accept that you've lost
They did try that though. That's the hilarious thing. They BOTH tried to do that and it failed, and they engaged in insurgent campaigns because they had no choice. They didn't deliberately pursue insurgent tactics, they were forced to. Nobody CHOOSES to be an insurgent because it's the worst possible way to fight.

I don't think that aircraft would be particularly effective against insurgency, unless the US Gov't went around just decimating its own cities. You seem to think that we would fight this rebellion in Afghanistan or something.

The top and bottom of having a gun is that it makes everyone equal, a 14 year old with a pistol is just as dangerous as a professional boxer with a pistol. Without the pistol the 14 year old wouldn't last 30 seconds. That's where the difference lies, European governments have waited a long time to be fully in control, why would they even dream of giving that up? For the sake of someone's rights?

Only in the context of some kind of surgical strike by trained professionals. If it's just a violent mob of regular Americans with their looted police weapons setting out to massacre a bunch of soldiers and take their shit then it doesn't much matter. It comes down to weight of numbers versus the resolve of the defenders and the foresight of the commanders. Whether they're armed with metal rods or rifles a whole bunch of those angry Americans are going to be slaughtered before they manage to beat enough soldiers to death to take control. It's unorganised chaos, with soldiers who don't know what to do and rioters who don't know what they're doing.

>heavy weapons are helpful but not necessary to, for example, hold a civilian city.
They'll be necessary to break the inevitable siege that city is put under though, and not starving to death from the siege-induced shortages will be necessary to holding the city.

>I don't think that aircraft would be particularly effective against insurgency
Then think again. Actual insurgents always talk about how gunships are their worst nightmare, for various reasons. There's plenty to read on the subject.

>unless the US Gov't went around just decimating its own cities.
This is war, not a picnic. The US government will fight it like it fights everything else, and if you think that'll only turn their people against them then you haven't read much history. The civilians will blame the fighting on the terrorists, if anything. That's what's happening in Syria. Society divides into loyalists and rebels pretty early on, and any bad things that either do are blamed on the other immediately.

How realistic it is that a rebel group would actually "win" (with whatever their purpose would be) is also dependent on what exactly they're rebelling against and their popularity and a bunch of other hypothetical stuff (ie irrelevant).

>Actual insurgents always talk about how gunships are their worst nightmare, for various reasons. There's plenty to read on the subject.

If the people are so daunted by the prospect of beating police officers to death, or are so incapable of fighting that they cannot do this and take their shit, then your rebellion was doomed to fail anyway. It's not ~helpful~ because if you're willing to use those guns then you're willing to take the steps required to get them, and it's virtually impossible to fail at those steps if you had any chance of succeeding later on.

Basically, if you can't get small arms you wouldn't win anyway even if you had them.

>>
>>59972174
That's my point. It's really not. When the violent angry mob rolls down the streets towards the local police station in its thousands then those police officers are going to run away or be beaten to death no matter what they do, regardless of how many guns the rioters have. That's exactly how it went down in Libya, and that's how it would go down across Europe if ever it went down. This would carry on until, equipped with those spoils, the rioters reached an armoury or depot and pillaged it as well. So on and so forth forever.

If the rebellion doesn't have the momentum to succeed at this early stage then it would never succeed later on anyway, even if it did have guns.

>>59972206
>In ONE hypothetical scenario wherein every single non-government employee took arms against the government, it would certainly be helpful if they had the option of AR15s and Barrett .50s in addition to handguns and hunting rifles.
The government would be so hilariously fucked in that situation that I can confidently state it would not be helpful at all, because the odds of success are already at 100%..

>ok and?
And therefore even insurgents agree that insurgency is a bad strategy, and becoming a de facto government with army in tow is the better option.

To be a conventional army you need heavy weapons.

So it all coalesces in a beautiful, impenetrable wall of logic

To fight effectively you need heavy weapons.
You will never have heavy weapons and not have small arms.
Ergo, you do not need huge quantities of small arms because without heavy weapons they are pointless and with heavy weapons you have them anyway.

>I haven't even engaged in any other lines of argument because unlike some other people I know how to stay on topic. I'm here to talk about insurgency and such. If you want someone to engage in pointless wide-ranging goalpost shifting then there are plenty of Eurokeks around to oblige you.
kek ok, so you're cool if we keep our assault weapons as long as they're clearly labeled, "useless in some hypothetical situations"?

That has happened about... twice in American history? If that?

Is that quite an issue in a country of 300,000,000?

Hostile in the sense that it will oppose the interests of the others.

Exactly what happened in Egypt, Libya, Syria, and Ukraine.

;^) you're so smart

>They would be incorrect.
Irrelevant. All that matters is that they believe it, because so long as they do they will slavishly support the government that blew up their neighbour's house, and the government will continue to do that kind of thing. The US government verymuch will fight a regular war on its own soil. It's not going to pull punches because of sentiment.

>so you're cool if we keep our assault weapons as long as they're clearly labeled, "useless in some hypothetical situations"?
In the context of this argument, yes. I don't care about the other issues at the moment. All I want to say is that "we need our guns to fight the government" justification for the second amendment is retarded.

>The government would be so hilariously fucked in that situation that I can confidently state it would not be helpful at all, because the odds of success are already at 100%
>it would not be helpful at all
if you cannot conceive of a single instance wherein it would be helpful to have more and heavier small arms on the spectrum of 0-100% civilian support then you are not trying.

>And therefore even insurgents agree that insurgency is a bad strategy, and becoming a de facto government with army in tow is the better option.
ok but it would be possible for insurgents armed only with small arms to get heavier weapons
>it still stands that not every single rebellion would be an 'insurgency' and not even all 'insurgencies' would absolutely NEED heavy weaponry to succeed

>So it all coalesces in a beautiful, impenetrable wall of logic
hi Descartes, how are your theoretical daemons going?

>To fight effectively you need heavy weapons.
>You will never have heavy weapons and not have small arms.
>Ergo, you do not need huge quantities of small arms because without heavy weapons they are pointless and with heavy weapons you have them anyway.
lol that simply doesn't follow, there are several hideous implicit premises
you would need to supplement that with "you cannot get heavy weapons without small arms"

If they're so obvious then provide one.

>ok but it would be possible for insurgents armed only with small arms to get heavier weapons
Of course.

>you would need to supplement that with "you cannot get heavy weapons without small arms"
You cannot get heavy weapons with a number of things, small arms being one of them. You will also need a big angry mob, a social movement that supports you, some kind of political organisation, and so on and so on.

And if you have all the other shit you'll find you really don't need small arms to start with after all, though you will need them by the end. They're easy enough to pick up along the way.

oh really? Is there evidence that if they didn't want to kill the police they would never have succeeded?

you are grasping at straws

Actually there is a large community of members of the military and DoD who would join a rebellion or would have second thoughts about killing their mom. Of course, you wouldn't care because this is all speculation. (can't find military poll I saw earlier but here's this and pic related http://talkingpointsmemo.com/dc/poll-29-think-armed-rebellion-might-soon-be-necessary)

Anything else is a SMG, Rifle or MG.

That's the definition of an "assault rifle" faggot libtards want to name every weapon an assault weapon.

>Semi-Automatic rifle aka the scary AR-15.
You pull the trigger and one bullet fires after each trigger pull.

>Handgun
You pull the trigger and one bullet fires after each trigger pull.

Semi-automatic is a loaded term meant to scare people into associating semi-automatic guns with automatic guns which are already illegal to own.

Fully automatic weapons can be bought with ATF approval. Fun fact: Only 1 crime has ever been committed with a government issued automatic weapon and it was by a crooked cop in the 40's.
