    As i was about to start my car i heard something sounding like machine-gun shots and quickly seeked cover even though it sounded like it was far away. I'm a bit scared right now, never heard real shootout before. From what i heard it sounded like two different semi-automatic guns. I also hear dogs barking in the distance. The crime nowadays is just getting ridiculous, everyday on the news there's always someone getting murdered. I live in Trinidad and Tobago with a population of approx. 1.2M people, considering the murder rate it's pretty bad here. I absolutely hate guns in real life, it's okay in fictional stuff. Guns do no good, they just take precious lives. I still went out the road because i needed a bread and it took me less than 5mins to go and return. I can only hope it was a bust on some drug dealers and the cops was successful, hopefully it'll be on the news tomorrow. I need some kind of anti-break-in house alarm system as soon as i have the money's.

    I hear that shit all the time here. Cops here don't come just because you heard gunshots.

    Unless you actually see someone shot, I wouldn't worry about it.

    When I was a kid I was walking with my friend and I saw 2 guys get out of a car near a dep and one of them had a gun in his hand. I was so scared but I was afraid to tell my friend so I just shut up about it.

    Later on, I heard nothing of it so I figured it was nothing I guess? or maybe it wasn't a gun? It was late that night. Either way, I kind of know how you feel, shit's fucked. .

    Guns are actually pretty loud, louder than you think.

    On my friend's farm, his dad always wakes up, loads his rifle up with ammo, and shoots birds to keep them away from the seeds.

    Guns are deeply rooted in society. They do good, and contrary to popular belief, their sole intention is not to kill people, but spread life around. I could run through history about how many times a young frontier family shot their dinner, or killed that mad dog but I won't. I myself am fairly proficient with a firearm, and when it comes time to use it, it's there. I'm also learning how to shoot a bow.

    Guns do have a place in society, and in a perfect world, there would be no reason to take them outside the home. We no longer need to hunt, and they have essentially taken the role from a hunting tool to a self defense tool.

    Many people cry that tasers and pepper spray can do the same thing, but I know first hand that neither of those have any true stopping power if someone is truly intent on harming you.

    Maybe, but that is a horridly bad comparison. At least with piracy, it can possibly act like free advertising. With guns the consequences a much more dire.

    Sorry to sound like a dick, but you said that it sounded like a machine gun then you said it sounded like a semi-automatic? Just so you know, the whole purpose of a machine gun is that it is automatic...

    It's unfortunate that civilians can easily access firearms in our modern society with or without lawful restrictions. I think that there is a paradigm shift in our society's view on weapons. When I joined the army one of my much older drill sergeant said that soldiers of his days (early 60's) were a lot less comfortable with firearms initially, where as we seemed to immediately treat it as if it was just another common household item as soon as we get them...

    People like hunting though for their food, it's just like fishing.

    A lot of food tastes a lot better freshly hunted and cooked up instead of buying it packaged.

    Semi-auto = Fires as fast as you can pull the trigger
    Full-auto = Hold the trigger down and it fires a continuous stream of bullets
