Second Amendment

"Use of a swa?"
 - Malcolm Reynolds, Firefly

I don't like guns. Something about how they smell bothers me. I really don't like how they are easy to hurt people other than yourself with, but it's mostly smell.

That being said, I don't have anything against being armed. I actually support arming yourself for protection, and taking the time to train yourself to learn how to use your weapon of choice.

I don't really care for the sort of people who make guns their weapons of choice.

Don't get me wrong, I'm not discriminating against them, and I recognize some people just need an easy way out, a weapon that's relatively easy to use, easy to defend yourself with, and easy to harm others with without harming yourself. That's just not my way.

I prefer weapons you have to train and practice with somewhat extensively in order to defend yourself with them without injuring yourself, let alone causing yourself more damage than the person attacking you is doing.

I prefer tonfas as my weapon of choice, though a staff or a foam sword will do in a pinch.
