    Need has sweet fuck all to do with it. I neither need nor want a machine gun. But anybody who does want or need a machine gun should be able to purchase one. Or as many as they can afford.

    K. Maybe a sub gun. In 9mm. I’d still bitch about the ammo cost. I’m a tight bastiche.

    1. avatar Waffensammler98 says:

      Indeed. It is a common trend for Progressives to judge the way things should be by their personal limit of needs. “I don’t need anything more than a break-action rifle and 100 rounds of ammo a year, why should you?” It’s all rooted in petty jealousy, that others have the power and ability to own and do things they’re too weak to do themselves. Its one giant perpetual game of playing the sore loser.

    I need a Mk19 machine gun. It’s for my gender reassignment surgery. As I mentioned elsewhere, I sexually identify as an AAVP7A1. Quit oppressing me.

    1. avatar Cucamonga Jeff says:

      All these ammosexuals coming out of the closet. Next I suppose they’ll want their own bathrooms with a firing range built in.

      1. avatar DrewR says:

        I could have such a thing?!

        1. avatar Jack Crow says:

          Agreed!! “Victim” status, here we come!!

        2. avatar Nigel the expat says:

          Seriously. Spending enough time in there. Might as well get some bench rest time out of it 😉

          Winner, winner, [last night’s] dinner! 😀

        “All these ammosexuals coming out of the closet.”

        Ammosexuals never shoot blanks…

        Every bathroom is a firing range. The toilet bowl is your backstop. That brown streak on the porcelain? That’s your target. Flip the giggle switch and hose it down.

          This could help to explain your aversion to the term “moist nugget”.

          TTAG is cheaper than therapy.

    2. avatar Jomo says:

      Serge, you win the internets for the day.

    3. avatar Jack Crow says:

      Just looking for that special BTR-60 to spend the rest of your life with! A love story for the ages.

  3. avatar Horacemann says:

    So called flash mob swarms bart train in Oakland, Ca and robs passengers. Gone in thirty seconds. This is what happens to a disarmed people.

    1. avatar Chadwick says:

      Or just brainwashed people. Not that everybody in California is, but they sure seem to love bringing their liberal bs into Utah when they flee their liberal bs in Commiefornia. A fair amount have damn near begged to be defenseless.

  4. avatar Joe R. says:

    Larry Potterfield quote. Nice. : )

    Yep. One more.

    People don’t need to worry about one person owning many weapons until they start growing more appendages to hold them.

      But we’re “paranoid” if we say that our ahole neighbors who needed a job are “coming for our guns”.

    Reminds me of the last time I listened to an interview with a Bernie Sanders supporter – college age dood. My wife had some choice comments about the gent’s ideas and work ethic.

    My only comment was “No, you can’t have my stuff.” Mrs. C just about busted a gut laughing, I’m proud to say 🙂

    1. avatar No one of consequence says:

      What a maroon!

  6. avatar Ironhead says:

    Need has nothing to do with. I will own as many as I want. Or that I can afford.

  7. avatar GS650G says:

    How many golf clubs does a true player need?

    1. avatar neiowa says:

      If can’t get if done with 3 clubs must be a penis problem.

      1. avatar No one of consequence says:

        Or a lack of balls.

  8. avatar Kyle says:

    How many cars do you need? How many dishes do you need? How many Chairs, Bedrooms, Superbowl rings, shirts, shoes, lawn darts, bottles of wine-beer-whiskey-coke-pepsi-root beer, do you need?

    …The correct answer is,

    As many as you want and can reasonably afford and store.

  9. avatar Ryan Perry says:

    If you can count how many guns you own you don’t have enough

  10. avatar Kendahl says:

    Gianforte had a good answer. I’m always amused, in a contemptuous way, at socialist/progressives’ ideas about what I “need”. If I didn’t want more than I “need”, I wouldn’t “need” to work hard enough to afford it.

  11. avatar Docduracoat says:

    That whole “need” thing keeps coming up
    The problem is who will be the need Judge?

  12. avatar Shiny Potato says:

    Is everybody going to ignore the fact that Gianforte is a religious nut who is only talking about guns because he’s running as a Republican? The guy has no principle to stand on here.

    1. avatar matt says:

      this is what worries me just because we agree on one thing doesn’t make him a great person

    2. avatar Drain Eel says:

      I’m a montanan…and yes, I am worried about this too.

  13. avatar Calvin says:

    How many I Need is calculated by:
    1 for me
    + 1 for every able bodied member of my household
    + 1 for every able bodied neighbor that is too short sighted to foresee and prepare for WROL/SHTF (includes sufficient ammo and mags to match)

    I still have a lot of buying and building to do. I could say that I won’t get into Want territory in this lifetime but I cheat a little: I fill out the neighbors’ allotment with things I find interesting in the meantime.

  14. avatar Drain Eel says:

    Unfortunately if you ask Greg how old the earth is he is going to say “five thousand years”

    As a montanan, I’m not sure which one of them is actually worse.

  15. avatar Bob says:

    The government has no right to limit the quantity of something I want, just because the number I want exceeds the number I need.

    How many shoes does your wife/girlfriend need? How many ties/shirts/etc. do you need? You only wear one (pair) at a time, so why do you need more than one?

    When someone gets to the point that he asks, “How many guns do you need?”, he has ran out of intelligent arguments, and he is starting to use the ridiculous ones.
    “Name calling, slander, and HYPERBOLE are a sure sign that the other person has lost the argument and has nothing else to say. We see this all of the time.” — unknown TTAG commenter, a few years ago
