Since it's been proven beyond the shadow of a doubt in this thread that owning firearms is a god given right and that if more people kept guns in their homes, crime would actually go down, what do you guys think about private citizens' right to own bomb carrying robots? Is that protected under the 2nd Amendment too? If owning wimpy little pistols and rifles strikes fear into the hearts of potential criminals and lowers crime, wouldn't homeowners' owning bomb carrying robots make our society even safer? If a significant number of law-abiding citizens started keeping bomb-carrying robots in their homes, probably crime would drop to around zero, don't you think?
Rather than having to risk life and limb by confronting an intruder personally, wouldn't you rather just use your iPhone to operate a bomb-carrying robot from the safety of your fortified bedroom? I'm mostly thinking here of citizens who have physical challenges or limitations, e.g., older people with poor night vision or women living alone, and how having a robot would add an extra layer of safety to their lives. Our federal government, now, regularly carries out extra-judicial executions in other countries using unmanned drones, and the Dallas Police Department just executed a guy with a bomb carrying robot the other day. It seems like it a great thing, doesn't it?
Since our governments now, apparently, have the right to execute criminals without a trial, why shouldn't individual citizens have the same right? Of course, we'd have to have a vetting process and people would have to apply for a permit, there'd be background checks, etc., but wouldn't it be great if we didn't have to go through the whole cumbersome process of getting a judge to sentence a criminal to prison to execution?
"You break in my house or threaten my family in any way, and I'll blow your ass up!" We could make bumper stickers and signs that people could put in their yards to alert potential criminals to the existence of a bomb carrying robot in a home. What criminal in his right mind would break into a house where he knew or had reason to suspect there might be a bomb carrying robot waiting for him inside?
Somebody needs to contact the Trump campaign to see if they'd be willing to get behind a movement to legalize private ownership of bomb carrying robots. Of course, the robots would all be designed, manufactured, marketed and sold by private American companies, but the U.S. Government could get a piece of the action, too, by brokering the sale of the technology to other countries. Just think how proud we'd all be knowing that good ole American ingenuity solved the problem of crime all over the world.
God bless America!
