    Human beings have been dreaming up new ways to kill for many years. In fact, I wouldn't be surprised if most hadn't been killed over just how many years it's been.

    Re: plastic gun made from 3 D laser

    ^The problem is that with the inclusion of the Firearm, a weapon that any retard with a pair of eyes and hands can use, the art behind learning to fight is mostly forgotten. Perhaps what upsets me most about moving away from home is the lack of appreciation and displayable talent in art in the Outlands. Martial Arts are among these. The same reason why the Crossbow was banned by The Pope across Europe (for being an effective weapon to kill an enemy in a cowardly, long-range fashion, without any true skill or training, thereby tipping the scales horribly unevenly) is what the firearm actually came along and was even BETTER at doing.

    I like "gun people" for the most part. I have a lot of respect for anyone who can take the time to actually sit down and study any subject, even those that do not interest me (such as cars, but I get along with "car guys" all the same)

    However, I occasionally come across these people who feel that because of the extreme talent they possess with a firearm, they are some type of unstoppably killing machine...yet they never have the ability to fight without their precious weapon. It actually makes me very sad to see so few people today know how to fight (be it unarmed or armed melee combat) and that is only ONE type of art. It makes me wonder what the **** they spent their childhood learning when they are unable to properly display any artistic ability.

    But you see, these Gun people. Some of them are true artists in their trade. A personal friend of mine (one of my best friends) we have just sort of decided owns "three of everything" so far as firearms go. She also makes and modifies them and caps her own ammunition. Her living space is essentially a futon, some simple furniture here or there throughout the rooms, tables blanketed in specialized equipment and projects being worked on and shelves, lockboxes and drawers full of neatly kept, neatly sorted firearms of all shapes, sizes and vintages. This same kid however, has excellent prowess in martial arts. While not the greatest with a melee weapon (though trained fully in two such arts) she is very well versed in hand-to-hand combat (which is of course, as with most friends, how I met her to begin with). Some of these Gun people can create or study their passion as an artist. But...for the most part, this is maybe 2% of these hardcore gun people.

    In spite of advice to acquire one from many people, including the state attorney, I do not need a firearm. I am licensed to carry a weapon and I can get one any time I like (In fact, I already know this same friend, as well as several others, have nice weapons they would willingly give to me) but I don't. If I ever do, I have an assortment of friends with firearms. They can do the bang-bang-shoot-em-up part for me.

    All of that being said. I have been shot at dozens of times. Seldom has it been that only single shot was fired. Most times, there were LOTS of bullets fired and on probably a third of them, there were shots coming from more than one person. In spite of this, no one has ever managed to actually hit me, which my friends and relations joke about (Though in recent months, the phrase "They haven't made a bomb big enough to kill Chamus." has become more favourable). Yet most times people have tried to attack me from close-range, they have at least had mild success and landed a hit (not counting the people who I knew would hit me, because they were sparring, fighting professionally, training with me, or perhaps that one drunk guy at a party who wants to fight, but you know better than to hit first) and I wear scars from many of these encounters to this day.

    I believe part of the reason for this is that one one truly learns a discipline and invests their life (literally, YEARS of their life) into developing it and making it their own, thereby becoming an Art, in the purest sense of the world, that they will only naturally be far better at it than if they are simply the type of person who does something like collecting a variety of guns and taking them to the range every so often.

    Then again, maybe it is because most people training with hand-based weapons or hand-to-hand combat practice against live opponents, instead of a paper target hanging on a hook.

    Rant over.

    Bullets will not make it through a metal detector!
    I had a single .22 in the lining of my jacket that went through a hole in my pocket.
    Didn't know about it. Went through at a courthouse, alarm went off, guard checked me with the wand. It went crazy when he hit the area. I felt the bullet. Luckily, there was a zipper in the same area and I played it off. Nothing further happened except for me needing a change of draws.

    I studied Wing Chun from Sifu Eddie Chong. Direct descendant from Bruce Lee's teacher, Ip Man back home in Sacramento. He also teaches a rare form called White Eyebrow, pretty brutal, but practical and simple art, 90% hands, 10% kicks.

    I will perform a full strip search on myself ahead of time before going through again!
    (Also had a razor blade in my wallet that they didn't appreciate.)

    Before we flew last week, I had to remember to remove a credit card knife I keep in my wallet and leave it home.

    Huh. Of my many court appearances, I never accidentally smuggled weapons into the building. I did however attend court many times with my boots, which contain more metal than any other material. Most of it is sharp. Same with my belt which has a rather large buckle as it is so wide or my wallet chain, which is a cut down industrial tow chain. Never had a problem bringing any of that in, though it would of course set the detectors off and would naturally need to be looked over by the officers present.

    I have never been through a metal detector without setting it off (nor will I ever). Usually, I set them off multiple times too.

    It's good to be armed in the world today. I was actually STABBED last June for no reason... in my neck and wrist area. I'm not a street person, I just happened to be in the wrong place at the wrong time. I've lost some feeling in my hand and neck. If all the right people were armed at all times, we wouldn't have to worry about these punks out there that are waiting to hurt us and the people we care about. I almost lost everything that night. My girlfriend was 6 months pregnant with my first child, my daughter Ava. I thank god for every day I spend with her, and I wish these cowards didn't feel so comfortable running up on innocent people like that. If the two guys that attacked me seen a pistol in their face, then all three of us could have went home unharmed. But, it didn't go down that way....

    These cowards that hurt innocent people...they aren't afraid to die. They usually have nothing to lose, which is why they do what they do. Whether you were carrying or not, you most likely would have been stabbed anyway, unfortunately. Perhaps it would have been easier to retaliate after the fact if you were carrying, but it wouldn't have changed the damage you incurred. Any weapon, including guns, aren't crime deterrents... That said, I'm not against carrying, but I wouldn't expect to see significant dropping of crime rates due to everyone being armed.
