Why would I wear one???


Do you walk about all day wearing one for no apparent reason???

Would you carry a gun for no apparent reason??

Other than paranoia, of course.

I might need a gun.

A motorcycle helmet?? What the fuck for???

I'm not so feeble that I fall over all the time...

Don't assume I have your kind of problems...

Apparently you missed it.

Just to clarify some apparent confusion about Aussie gun laws (for everybody here)...

The sale, possession, and use of firearms are regulated by the Australian states and territories, with cross-border trade matters addressed at the federal level. In 1996, the federal government and the states and territories agreed to a uniform approach to firearms regulation, including a ban on certain semiautomatic and self-loading rifles and shotguns, standard licensing and permit criteria, storage requirements and inspections, and greater restrictions on the sale of firearms and ammunition.

Firearms license applicants would be required to take a safety course and show a genuine reason for owning a firearm, which could not include self-defense. The reasons for refusing a license would include "reliable evidence of a mental or physical condition which would render the applicant unsuitable for owning, possessing or using a firearm."

A waiting period of twenty-eight days would apply to the issuing of both firearms licenses and permits to acquire each weapon.

Some statistics you just cannot get out of your head. The fact that eight American kids every day are shot dead is one of them.

Sad

Get all defensive when you hear the "p" word, as usual.

But tell me, you are certain you'll never need a helmet? You won't get broadsided at a blind intersection? No yuppie in a BMW is ever going to rear-end you at a stop light? You are so cocksure that you won't even take elementary passive precautions?

If I remember past threads correctly, you don't wear one when you're riding a motorcycle. This is analogous to not wearing a seat belt when driving a car -- you know, the example you just used.

Gun ownership ultimately is about giving oneself the ability to defend oneself - as best one is able - if things really turn to shit.

Like a seatbelt - you hope you never need it, but if the need arises and you don't have one, you're screwed....

I.was about to say spare tire again.
