Americans Scare me.....

I saw this post referenced on a forum I belong to:

Gun Sales Up Since Election

What struck me as scary was not the "running out and buying guns" but the "running out and buying assault rifles."

Ok, I understand Americans have a love affair with guns and their whole "right to bear arms" debate.  But I fail to see how a regular Joe Bloggs can justify having an Assault rifle in the house.  Handgun yes - for protection, rifle/shotgun yes, for hunting, assault rifle??

Underwhat circumstances do you feel you would need an assault rifle?  Are you expecting an armed assault of your house?  Do you expect the army to come after you? Have deer starting shooting back??

Sometimes I'm glad I live over here in New Zealand.....

Been thinking it would be nice to have a blog but not sure if I have enough to say.

I'm an I.T worker from Wellington New Zealand.

I like my toys so this will probably have posts about my dealings with those.

My Cellphone is an iPhone 5s

I run a NextPVR based PVR at home to replace my video recorder, DVD player and to host all my music. I'm also really big on Plex, for centralising all my music, videos and I've written a plugin or two for it for accessing live TV and for storing recordings with metadata.
