There is ALWAYS a victim. And it depends on who's law we're talking about. May not be a crime against the state, but there are eternal laws that always have consequences whether in this life or the next.

Society becomes the victim when you wind up in a car crash, and because you were not wearing a seatbelt you are injured enough that EMS has to respond, or killed and the coroner has to go to work; it has to do with the tax payer being the victim. Now if EMS were not required to respond where a seatbelt was not used by an injured motorist, nor the coroner (your body just stays there until next-of-kin takes care of it), then you might have an argument here.



Logic fail.

The "crime" would be wrecking and getting injured sans seat belt. Simply not wearing one will not harm anyone whatsoever.

Whether or not you believe in something has no bearing on whether or not it is actually true. Sorry if that hurts your ego just a bit.

I believe it. In the state of NM when I worked as a patrol officer, an arrest was always made when one of the two had bruises, or there was a third witness who articulated that there was a victim of physical assault.

If no bruises or witness, then at our discretion we could make one of them leave (usually the male) until they both cooled down. Most were repeat offenders in volatile relationships well known to us, and most incidents involved alcohol abuse or weed (like the wife that spent four days in jail for throwing a beer bottle at her hubbies face after smoking a blunt. I guess the two substances don't mix).

Sometimes the law was justified, but there were exceptions where officer discretion would have been beneficial to all. Not everyone that has a domestic has a history of it, and not all domestics warrant an arrest (such as the wife trying to punch her husband in a rage. Women trying to beat up on a man is a joke most of the time).

I can't think of any laws that are more useless than those restricting the length of a weapon's barrel or OAL. Also, the restrictions on select fire weapons serve absolutely NO purpose in preventing crime.

All gun laws are ultimately just insanely illogical pre-crime murder laws. 10 years for a gun that's too short? Obviously you were going to kill someone with it hiding it under your trenchcoat. More than 7 rounds in your mag in NY? Clearly about to mow down 8+ people in a murder rampage. Everyone with a 1919 is a illegal side plate away from setting up at the end of a shopping mall and killing their fellow citizens.

Only benefit I see is the edge given to government agents to use any weapon they choose to point at the populace.

The law must be obeyed or the citizens will begin to believe they can ignore govt's orders. Then where would we be?

I was once chased down Washington avenue by a 6'-2" black guy with a knife in Pre-ccw days and I ran my ass off in the ice & snow in flat soled dress shoes!

I called 911 after it happened, gave a description, and over an hour later they said they couldn't find anybody fitting that description. They said since they couldn't find him there was no crime committed, and therefore no need to take any report (which would look bad in their crime rate statistics)!

Just because their 21 minute average response time to life threatening calls means the guy had plenty of time to hop on metro transit busses& escape must mean there was no crime. If what someone else does involves use of taxpayer funds in any way, either in treating direct or indirect results of those actions, then it IS my business as a taxpayer!

You want to do drugs, smoke pot, whatever. Don't demand I pay your welfare when you get laid off from your job if you fail to show up on time or get fired for being under the influence on the job.

I actually believe the NFA of 1934 had some merit, in that over the years very few legally owned NFA weapons were used in crimes (IIRC, two up until 1986 when the Hughes Amendment was passed), one of which was a suicide according to a Small Arms Review article I read years ago.

A $200.00 transfer tax in 1934 was ridiculous, but in this day and age, would serve to deter most criminals from purchasing one. The added hoops you would have to jump through makes buying an NFA weapon somewhat more challenging, and involves a level of effort that would discourage most criminals to begin with.

If USMCTanker ran for prez, overturning the Hughes Amendment would be one of my primary goals of the first four years of my administration, along with selling surplus M14s and M16s to qualified individuals along the lines of the old DCM program (one per lifetime). In fact, I'd eliminate the CMP and bring back the old DCM (along with growing the size of government by subsidizing the program with taxpayers money) and return it to its original purpose of promoting marksmanship training via DoD and selling those weapons at a subsidized cost to make them more affordable to those with an interest in competitive shooting. This would serve to merge the goals of DoD (promoting rifle marksmanship for young people that may serve in uniform at a later date) with those who were actively interested in learning rifle marksmanship skills.

Then, I'd use the Swiss model of *state*-sponsored matches a reality by offering free ammo for matches utilizing those rifles sold by the DCM at rifle ranges ran by Army or Marine SNCOs. These events would also be state-sponsored (as in, the federal government), and promoted by private sector vendors and made to be family friendly as well. These matches would be attended by military armorers to service the weapons in need of repair free of charge. If a rifle needed a new part, it would be replaced free of charge to the owner. Taxpayers would pay for this.

In addition, I'd develop a program to give public school districts more taxpayer revenue when they agreed to offer small bore marksmanship training at high schools as extra credit for PE. Every HS would have a small bore rifle team. Taxpayers would fund the acquisition of rifles, the construction of new ranges on school property, and the costs of equipping the team. Private sector vendors would be free to sponsor such teams for their financial benefit in advertising.

My America would be a better place.

No one.

The gun laws are ridiculous when it comes to pre-crime. If someone used a sawed off coach gun to rob a store, they committed armed robbery. Who cares what type of weapon was used?


I can't think of any laws that are more useless than those restricting the length of a weapon's barrel or OAL. Also, the restrictions on select fire weapons serve absolutely NO purpose in preventing crime.


Only benefit I see is the edge given to government agents to use any weapon they choose to point at the populace.

The law must be obeyed or the citizens will begin to believe they can ignore govt's orders. Then where would we be?

(Italics denote sarcasm)


I actually believe the NFA of 1934 had some merit, in that over the years very few legally owned NFA weapons were used in crimes (IIRC, two up until 1986 when the Hughes Amendment was passed), one of which was a suicide according to a Small Arms Review article I read years ago.

A $200.00 transfer tax in 1934 was ridiculous, but in this day and age, would serve to deter most criminals from purchasing one. The added hoops you would have to jump through makes buying an NFA weapon somewhat more challenging, and involves a level of effort that would discourage most criminals to begin with.

If USMCTanker ran for prez, overturning the Hughes Amendment would be one of my primary goals of the first four years of my administration, along with selling surplus M14s and M16s to qualified individuals along the lines of the old DCM program (one per lifetime). In fact, I'd eliminate the CMP and bring back the old DCM (along with growing the size of government by subsidizing the program with taxpayers money) and return it to its original purpose of promoting marksmanship training via DoD and selling those weapons at a subsidized cost to make them more affordable to those with an interest in competitive shooting. This would serve to merge the goals of DoD (promoting rifle marksmanship for young people that may serve in uniform at a later date) with those who were actively interested in learning rifle marksmanship skills.

Then, I'd use the Swiss model of *state*-sponsored matches a reality by offering free ammo for matches utilizing those rifles sold by the DCM at rifle ranges ran by Army or Marine SNCOs.

Try another analogy, this one sucks. He said victimless, your privacy was violated, you're the victim.


I am setting on my bed undressing, uncovering a huge unsightly birthmark.. Some one watches me undress, and sticks around to get a good look, but tells no one, I would never know, but I would still be the victim of a crime.

Society becomes the victim when you wind up in a car crash, and because you were not wearing a seatbelt you are injured enough that EMS has to respond, or killed and the coroner has to go to work; it has to do with the tax payer being the victim. Now if EMS were not required to respond where a seatbelt was not used by an injured motorist, nor the coroner (your body just stays there until next-of-kin takes care of it), then you might have an argument here.





So we get rid of dangerous guns.
Got it.

Hunting is a right. We have to ensure that future generations are able to exercise their right to hunt. We don't have the right to hunt game to a point that none exists for the future. This is pretty simple really.

The owner of the road is the victim. The perp violated the terms of use by using it in an unsafe manner. If he hut anyone, they're a victim of wilfully negligent endangerment, and battery with a deadly weapon.

And poaching is theft of game as well as trespassing. It should be illegal, unless it's eggs or Codfish, and it's served with bernaise and. Garlic sauteed spinach. In that case, rock on!

Yes. I am everything listed so far in this thread. Got a DUI (pot and beer) and seatbelt ticket while fucking my dead sister (who I paid for from a pimp), while driving to my deer stand to poach some out of season bucks with a 10in shotgun. I dont however like Ron Paul.

It is in the best interests of the government to make everyone a criminal.
