The really weird part is that it’s true. I believe at the beginning of the US Revolutionary War there were several ‘privateers’ that were more heavily armed than any ship in the the Navy.
Not by any crazy amount but when the navy started they were using converted merchant ships. I don’t think they ever had more than three or four and had sold them by 1790 (ish?).
Several states like Massachusetts had larger ‘naval militas’ than the continental navy as well.
@pleroma77, my interpretation would be the government is supposed to provide a national army for defense of the whole nation, and the civilians are supposed to be armed in close to the same manner to protect themselves against invasion and to fight against a tyrannical government
@Richard Cypher, I’m good with that.
@pleroma77, to be fair, our “Navy” was toilet.
@Richard Cypher, you would be completely correct good sir
I'd hate to own a recreational nuke instead of a defensive one. Can't imagine where I'd be allowed to use it without "What did you do to California?" this and "its not the same thing as microwaving!" that, or the worst one "Deus Vault doesn't mean you can, Sam!"
Poor thing is just sitting there waiting for someone to break into my house. I even leave the doors unlocked at night.
@Sambob, a-are you a super mutant from fallout 4? Cuz I just picture you with a mininuke sitting in an armchair when a burglar sneaks in like "the time has COME"
@HollywoodxGhost, close but no cigar.
Just a supermutant sitting on the toilet, like the rest of my funny pics members.
Phone in one hand and a nuke in another. Let me tell you, that burglar is about to see some shjt before he goes out.
@Sambob, a recreational nuke: an artificial fart possessing the explosive capacity of a nuclear warhead and an aroma that could gag a zombie.
I would totally build my own artillery if it was legal.
@ThePandaPool , one of my life goals is to own a tank. Armed if possible but i highly doubt i can get one like that legally
@Dephenistrator, I've been saying that for years. Something relatively simple. Like WWII era.
@ThePandaPool , that’s what great about the middle states. No ones really gonna stop you and there’s a lot of remote ass places to do it. I’ve modified mortar shell bottle rockets trying to do it with very limited success
@megamanx181x, I'm nukin it! *ding
@Dephenistrator, *blinding light and ever deafening explosion*
@megamanx181x, the toy should be a keychain sized explosive
@Dephenistrator, I’ll take 20
@megamanx181x, *packs them up in a vault boy lunch box
@Dephenistrator, *pays in bottle caps*
@megamanx181x, sorry, Nuke machine broken.
@megamanx181x, Blinding light and ever deafening exposition? Sounds about right after eating at a place that serves McNukes.
So they thought arm the citizenry so they can overthrow the government if it becomes tyrannical, but with way weaker and useless weapons than what the tyrannical government will have??? Makes no sense. My right to arms is partially to keep the government in check so I should.be able to get as armed as they are
This hella true tho
Guns are bad
@benderama, ugh. Can you not...
@ThePandaPool , guns are bad
@benderama, guns are good. bitch.
@benderama, they’re only bad when they’re empty
@XxDEMONBANExX, it's all he can say on loop whenever guns pop up in any way. It's like he's brainwashed and responding on command
@benderama, guns are inanimate objects, and apparently still have a higher IQ than you.
@big freedom, guns are bad inanimate objects
@benderama, as always, it’s so enlightening to debate with you.
@big freedom, he's a master debater
@benderama, Lol. Not one person said it so I will.
