: It's funny Gee you support the ownership of weapons which are designed to kill and presumably you think of self-defence as wounding or killing people who choose to attack you but given the similar circumstances of workers trying to defend themselves against employers and companies by "wounding" or "killing" them it's out of the question.

Don: People most certainly have the right to defend themselves from violent attack, using whatever means necessary. This applies both to employers and employees, as well as everyone else. If my boss attacked me, I certainly feel I have a right to defend myself using lethal force, if necessary. I suspect that what *you* want is an attack on employers who are not hurting anyone, but who are guilty of being members of a "class" you wish to purge. In this case, they have every right to defend themselves from the likes of you, using leathal force, if necessary.

Don: Now, I know you have a desire to purge. You have indicated the desire to purge me, simply because my ideas are different than yours. I am not the boss of anyone, and never have been. Still, you wish to kill me. Because of my ideas. It is easy to see how Marxists can so easily engage in a blood bath.
