    While I don't disagree with you, I don't really see what your point. If you are seeking to disavow the importance of an armed populous because of a lack of cohesion I believe you are mistaken. Armies and militias spring up when the need arises, that grave time has not yet come, and I pray it never does. Common people with little prior training or experience can be molded into an effective fighting force, it just takes time, effort, and money. To ignore this is to ignore the impact of thousands of ordinary people who answered the call during the Revolutionary War, Civil War, etc.

    There are those among us that love to exert power or influence over others. The human race has, and will always be this way. Tyranny is not extinct. The 2nd Amendment is just as relevant today as it was in 1791.

    Yeah, and try to order a ton of ammonium nitrate today and let us know how that goes for you.

    What do you think would happen to our liberty in the aftermath of a large scale chemical or bio weapons attack had those weapons been legally attained? Hell, we lost a huge chunk of the constitution after 911 and there wasn't even a constitutional controversy surrounding the means of attack that the terrorists used.



    I see, so in spite of all the secret contradicting evidence they still went ahead and came to a conclusion opposite of yours. Considering which agency drafted the report that is even more ridiculous.

    Actually, while a pursuing pharm degree i completed my gen chem, organic chem and cellular and molecular biology requirements. So my ability to judge the feasibility of synthesizing nerve agents in the kitchen is a little beyond reading The Anarchists Cookbook.

    Yeah, well call a chemical supply house today to order a ton of ammonium nitrate and let us know how that goes.

    Again, to make a sufficient amount in a form that can be effectivley delivered without drawing attention or killing one's self, no, it isn't.

    Could one possibly pull it off? Yes. Is it likely? No.

    Regardless, just because something is theoretically possible that means there should not be efforts to prevent it or that we should make it even easier by selling it in a complete weaponized form? That is completely insane.

    Just answer this one quesiton for me. Do you believe it should be perfectly legal to sell weaponized forms of chemical weapons so that any person intent on mass murder would be able to walk into a store and buy them?
