Should we go back to using muskets?

You can't kill 20 people nearly as easily with a musket as you can with an assault rifle with 30 round mags. It takes a several seconds to reload and you have to be skilled to get three shots off a minute. Not to mention crappy accuracy.

BTW, I'm only being half-serious with this topic. Don't go all ape$hit now.

We should go back to swords and shields. At least with a sword you have a chance.

Doesn't getting stabbed hurt a lot more though?

Ew, cave women. Have fun f*cking a woman covered in body and facial hair. Not to mention horrible BO.

The pointy end goes in the other person.

No sh*t, but you can still end up getting stabbed. :P

EDIT: Also, that's what she said.

We should go back to fists. Our fists were built the way they were to fend off against one another.

But seriously no. There's a reason why we abandoned the muskets.

Bu-bu-but they won't kill as much people if we go back to them. Again, half-sarcasm. :P

Well obviously you don't know how to kill with your fists. Personally, I can kill with a pinky.

Oooh and for those Pro Gun debaters, your selfishness is beyond reason. Perhaps we could legalize the owning of armoured Vehicles and Tanks and Apache gunships so every civilian can buy one, oooh we can also legalize C4's, hand grenades, morters and Nuclear warhead while we are it n see how long the country last.

You make it sound as if guns are safe with every human, when infact you are just speaking for yourself and if you didnt know, humans are the most dangerous, dellusional animal in the entire planet. Adding a gun to that mix was just a love letter to disaster

First off, I think you're using a strawman argument. No one wants those legal except guns. In fact, fully automatic guns are illegal for civilians.

Second, are you human? Yes? Delusional too? Perhaps. Personally I wouldn't trust sharks with guns. Sharks with guns are bad news.

Have you ever heard of a Shark killing other than to feed?, i swear humans are the only animals that kill for sports, religion and any other reason other than basic feeding

Actually, you can buy armored vehicles if you look in the right places. ArmyJeeps.net has a M74 Patton Tank for sale at $275,000. The M3A1 Scout Car has been sold though. I haven't looked through the rest of the website to see what else they have, but I would gather it is interesting.

I wouldn't mind going back further in military technology. The further we go back the more honorable the methods of fighting were.

You're right. That's the price for having such advanced minds. It's not perfect but nothing is.

Dueling should be legal. It was a mistake having it banned. Andrew Jackson is rolling in his grave, and Henry Clay is probably dancing on it.

I wonder what it feels like to try so desperately to be funny but never actually making anyone crack a smile. Care to share some insight? I'm sure it feels orgasmic as long as you get the attention you seek. Amirite?
