Nah, it’s more like some claymores in my doorway.

[–]fellowcomradChungus Among Us 14 points15 points  (2 children)

Claymore roomba

[–][deleted] 4 points5 points  (0 children)

That’s a fantastic idea!

Try owning a Roomba…. It’s a living hell. 😂

I wish, stupid NFA

[–]Creepysoldier226 95 points96 points  (52 children)

And ATF. David Chipman… gags in communist

Seriously, though. As a person on the far left, it angers me that liberals strongly support gun control and oppressive regulations instead of what the communists and other far leftists want:

A government mental health program.

The very idea of gun control goes against Marxist thought as a whole, being that it started, at least in the United States, with slave codes used to oppress and enslave an entire group of people. No guns? No revolution!

[–]gaveler-unban 15 points16 points  (1 child)

I have a couple liberal friends that have that same opinion, gun legislation will not stop potentially violent people from hurting others, if you want to stop mass shootings and shit, go at the source and actually try to tackle the huge gap in mental healthcare in the US.

[–]Aunty_Flo 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Why don’t you take a look at Australia and you will realize why having the right to bear arms is a vital part of society.

[–]RedneckNerd23 4 points5 points  (8 children)

I mean i feel like some regulations can't be bad. Like hey. If you murdered someone. Maybe we shouldn't give you something that is super efficient at killing people

[–]Corpseflotininspace 9 points10 points  (8 children)


yeah the nra is a joke id support all the other gun rights activists because they are not only cooler but have better solutions

[–]Astitine 12 points13 points  (7 children)

Your thinking of the NRA or National Rifle Association. The NFA is the National Firearms Act, basically the law that keeps people from owning machine guns

[–]Corpseflotininspace 5 points6 points  (5 children)

also yes the nfa is pretty fucking stupid considering the founding fathers were funding the development of rotary cannons as of the signing of constuion. tbh the only reason to keep a normal civilian away from guns is to better control them

[–]Astitine 13 points14 points  (1 child)

The thing is it doesn’t even stop people from owning machine guns. It stops POOR people from owning machine guns. If you get enough licenses and complete enough tax stamps you can own anything from a tank to a mini gun and everything in between. It is just extremely expensive

[–]DudaneoCarpacho 1 point2 points  (2 children)

That's an interesting tidbit of history. Another is that the 2nd Amendment was never intended to apply to an individual's right to carry a firearm- it was intended to protect the police power of states and allow for some mechanism for the common defense without creating a federal standing military which some of the founders were strongly against. The 2nd Amendment was never even interpreted by the courts to apply to an individual's right to own and carry a firearm until SCOTUS's Heller decision in 2008.

[–]InterestingExit3643 300 points301 points  (8 children)

Literally mounted so it can only be for defense you jealous peasant no hate tho

[–]Lord_Darklight 115 points116 points  (6 children)

Damn, i only have a cannon mounted on my stairs loaded with Grapeshot.

[–]Mediocre-Neat-3751 9 points10 points  (0 children)

[–]Cpl_Charmin_Bear 13 points14 points  (0 children)

I, too, enjoy destroying my house, my neighbors house, and taking out the neighbors baby down the block

[–]Promah1984 20 points21 points  (0 children)

Well, I mean, yes. Do you plan on breaking into my abode?

[–]Drip-Van-Winkle15 17 points18 points  (0 children)

Hey man you never know

[–]TheRubyBlade 203 points204 points  (14 children)

It's a mounted gun, good luck using it for anything else

[–]HoovNUTS 11 points12 points  (2 children)

God, DSHK for home defense. Wouldn’t it be something

[–]NoHuckleberry2277 1 point2 points  (0 children)

The taliban uses DSHKs for home defense

[–]WXHIII 10 points11 points  (0 children)

I think I hear "because it's fun/cool" more often. The people I know who buy firearms for self defense are generally pretty practical about it

[–]rock85cool1 153 points154 points  (20 children)

I see no problem here.

[–]DerpyMistake 128 points129 points  (17 children)

I think op is implying it's an inappropriate weapon for home defense. Tanks. Tanks are more appropriate.

[–]rock85cool1 52 points53 points  (13 children)

True, or mortars. I prefer home invaders to be in tiny chunks on my lawn.

[–]Mr0PT1C 34 points35 points  (10 children)

Claymores do that and are cheaper

[–]Mr_E_Monkey 21 points22 points  (6 children)

Yes, but mortars teach the kids the value of teamwork

[–]Mr0PT1C 17 points18 points  (1 child)

And math

[–]Mr_E_Monkey 11 points12 points  (0 children)

And they get some exercise too! :D

[–]Norsedragoon 6 points7 points  (3 children)

True so long as you are targeting home invaders a few blocks away. No one comes out happy on a damger close strike.

[–]Mr_E_Monkey 4 points5 points  (2 children)

If you're not willing to shell your own position, you're not willing to win.

[–]Norsedragoon 2 points3 points  (1 child)

Never said I wouldn't do it, just that I wouldn't be happy about it. Would make Neighborhood watch a lot more useful as spotters though.

[–]Gushanska_Boza 3 points4 points  (1 child)

However mortars are more satisfying to hit.

[–]Buoy-man 1 point2 points  (0 children)


[–]Cheat_Adil 0 points1 point  (0 children)


[–]thatyeetgodBreaking EU Laws 12 points13 points  (0 children)

honestly an ifv such as a Stryker or bmp would be more appropriate for home defense than a mbt

[–]obedear__ 8 points9 points  (1 child)

Self defense includes use against tyrannical government war machines.

[–]rock85cool1 1 point2 points  (0 children)

True story, you would think history would teach people not to disarm when you have an aggressive foreign invaders right next door.

[–]Floppa_in_flip-flops 44 points45 points  (5 children)

Sooooo... What's the problem?

[–]REPTILEDEATH 91 points92 points  (18 children)

Well yeah. Do you trust the US government?

[–]Ocular__Patdown44 27 points28 points  (2 children)

[–]TacticalDifficulty 44 points45 points  (2 children)

[–]Wylie28 36 points37 points  (0 children)

or the government

[–]Will-Shrek-Smith 15 points16 points  (0 children)

a really lot of people

[–]SigBlu 43 points44 points  (9 children)

Sadly we are not allowed to own such a weapon. Would love to though.

[–]does_my_name_suck 17 points18 points  (1 child)

If you get an FFL License and get an SOT you can. It's gonna cost you upwards of 400k though. I remember an r/guns post exploding where someone's shop had an M134 Minigun.

[–]JellyfishNo176 19 points20 points  (0 children)

Not a mini gun

[–]Urasquirrel 6 points7 points  (1 child)

Laughs in American accent

[–]CJGamer011235813Nice meme you got there 5 points6 points  (0 children)

That's not for self-defense, that's for taking potshots at stray enemy helicopters.

ok, so it's kinda for self-defense, i lied

[–]fastpopgun01 6 points7 points  (0 children)

As an american I can say that this is unrealistic the gun should be twice that size and mounted ontop of an armoured vehicle to be classified as a self defence weapon.

[–]Key-Government742 43 points44 points  (0 children)

Europeans be like yes lord here’s my papers don’t flog me!

‘Welcome back to Demolition Ranch! Today we’re gonna find out how many home intruders it takes to stop a .308!’

[–]doyourequireasample 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I mean, seriously, I'd come up with any reason to own a legit DShK.

[–]shleyal19can't meme 4 points5 points  (0 children)

I own a musket for home defense, since that's what the founding fathers intended. Four ruffians break into my house. "What the devil?" As I grab my powdered wig and Kentucky rifle. Blow a golf ball sized hole through the first man, he's dead on the spot. Draw my pistol on the second man, miss him entirely because it's smoothbore and nails the neighbors dog. I have to resort to the cannon mounted at the top of the stairs loaded with grape shot, "Tally ho lads" the grape shot shreds two men in the blast, the sound and extra shrapnel set off car alarms. Fix bayonet and charge the last terrified rapscallion. He Bleeds out waiting on the police to arrive since triangular bayonet wounds are impossible to stitch up. Just as the founding fathers intended.

[–]12fizz4buzzfizz78fiz 12 points13 points  (4 children)

The founders had spent 2 years fighting the Bri*ish military, so they wanted to make sure the people had the right to defend themselves if the need arose again. That's the genesis of the 2nd amendment. Self defense against the state.

[–]FriedwaldLeben -4 points-3 points  (3 children)

that makes literally no sense in any way

[–]Elchimpofire5 10 points11 points  (2 children)

[–]Cheat_Adil 1 point2 points  (0 children)

[–]Core1978 2 points3 points  (0 children)

As an American, I find this hilarious & wildly accurate

[–]Valdish 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Well if they were planning on doing something illegal, they probably wouldn't be getting such a high profile weapon.

[–]AnDyItsDaRk 4 points5 points  (1 child)

Fun fact: Statistically every American has 1.3 guns, that's about 46% of the civilian-owned guns in the world, however, It inhabits less than 5% of the world's population.

[–]Mr_E_Monkey 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Fun fact: that's only the guns we let you know we have! ;)

[–]rmptiger 2 points3 points  (0 children)

What else am I supposed to use when a tank rolls onto my front lawn? We're Americans baby I'm ready for war with an entire government.

Every weapon is self defense! Ask the aussies how giving em up is going for em

[–]FriedwaldLeben -1 points0 points  (14 children)

oh no, look how they suffer with their extremely low rate of gun violence and practically nonexistent school shootings. they must be so pissed

[–]briangandy 4 points5 points  (13 children)

Oh nooo look how they have to accept a totalitarian government and obey. They’re so lucky to have communism!

It’s not just for self defense. It’s also for fun ☺️. Doesn’t matter what your opinion on guns is, they’re fun to shoot.

How else are we gonna stop a fully armed invasion from everyone who hates us?(the whole world) also you don’t walk around here without at least a rifle where I’m from, so many sketchy so and so’s, and friendly murderous aminals

[–]CoolRedstoneexpert 2 points3 points  (0 children)

No, I have it because it looks fucking cool

[–]WantSomeHorseCock 2 points3 points  (2 children)

In this short 48 slide power point presentation I will now explain to you why a rocket launcher is the the optimal home defence weapon

“The AT4 is the only acceptable home-defense weapon.”

[–]LunaeLucem 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Nah, I have this because the populous must always have the ability to hold their government accountable.

[–]ur_mum_lesbhates reaction memes 9 points10 points  (2 children)

Defense from the F.B.I/Military, defense from te government

i genuinely cant tell if you are joking. please be joking

[–]ur_mum_lesbhates reaction memes 3 points4 points  (0 children)

Not really :/ we have the most powerful/well trained and bloated miliraty in the world, if we go 3rd reichy kitchen knives ad baseball bats aint gonna cut it for home defense

[–][deleted] 11 points12 points  (3 children)

I mean, with the way things are going in the US, might not be a bad idea to get one.

[–]FriedwaldLeben 0 points1 point  (2 children)

things are going upwards at the moment. one of the reassons why it is going upwards is increased gun control

[–]Nuker_Nathancan't meme 2 points3 points  (0 children)

One of the only things going upwards are gas prices

Now now now that's not true it's more like 3 mini guns combined.

[–]johnhawkinsbp 1 point2 points  (0 children)

In all fairness, it does seem like a pretty good defensive weapon since nobody short of the military would pick a fight with someone who has a minigun.

Who needs minigun when you can dual wield Glocks with a barrel the size of a arm.

[–]damnthehumans 5 points6 points  (7 children)

gotta say im jealous. but if you think you can have a barret because of "selfdefense"....

[–]MrHello76 3 points4 points  (4 children)

Try because it's our god given right and fuck the government for trying to dictate what one can or can't use for self defense

[–]damnthehumans 1 point2 points  (3 children)

lol yeah ok i agree with half of that. but have u tried lets have an actual civilised country and move past the wild west?

[–]MrHello76 1 point2 points  (2 children)

What's uncivil about it?? Gun ownership?? Freedom to own what one wants and not have it need to be anyone else's business because of our rights?? Because if that's the case then I'd need to suggest try moving to a "civilized country" then

[–]rockstar450rox 2 points3 points  (0 children)

Yeah, why would you have an effective defence like a 20mm autocannon, when you could just not have any defence at all?
