G Dickson: I just love how just a few weeks ago the 1DXiii was causing total internet outrage at the lack of dramatic advances. Now not so much.

No matter how good the 1DX MkIII may be it's useless with my Nikon glass. I would argue (if the 1DX is all the hype suggests) that Canon has caught up with the D5. I have the D4s and D850 but skipped the D5. The D6 should be a refreshing upgrade to my D4s. Pro D5 users will likely upgrade to the D6, if for no other reason, because they heavily use their D5's and are nearing the end of their shutter life...I'm sure the 1DX will be a fine camera as will the D6.

UllerellU: If there is any country in the world where I would not think of doing something like that, it's in the USA ... The level of paranoia is such that I would not even dare to shoot with a large telephoto lens, it's not like the police going to shoot you (which is very likely) is that you may be shootat for a "real patriot" guy, thinking that stops a terrorist threat, delirious ....
By the way, if a mobile phone can be mistaken with a weapon, the next tele-objective and near an airport with what?!?!

UllerellU, well, it was you who decided to take this story as an opportunity to impugn the US. And I would gladly "take stock" of our history relative to yours if you dare go there. I didn't start this discourse. Invariably some European feels the need to "educate" the US on how to be civilized while they rely on us time and again to save them from tyranny. We don't need your advice.

UllerellU, so, were the thousands who were executed by your late dictator, Franco, "paranoid?" Spare me your haughty lecture on the shortcomings of the US. You guys are late arrivals to the civilized world.

UllerellU, well aren't your children lucky? You'll "defend" them with the law. So after your children are attacked (or, heaven forbid, murdered) your "law" will catch up with the perpetrator and hold them "accountable" after the fact. I'm sure your children will thank you. And I noticed you still didn't name the idyllic country you live in....you're too busy casting aspersions on other nations. And lucky for you that you're "man enough" to defend them without "needing a weapon." Good luck with that.

UllerellU, how rich that you tell me to go live in a remote cabin where I won't endanger anyone and then have the gall to accuse me of insulting YOU when I simply say you're ignorant. If you're that emotionally fragile and unstable of course you'll be threatened by the idea of a citizen owning a "dreaded" firearm. Why don't you tell us the name of the "perfect" country you live in? A "perfect" country where you are a mere SUBJECT of your government. I will gladly not "evolve" as it is I, not my government, who has the duty to defend myself and my family. And I damn sure don't give a rats' rear end what some foreigner thinks about it. Unlike you, I haven't "evolved" to the point where I can't recognize that evil exists in this world and I'm quite OK with that.

BeaverTerror, I support your goal of keeping weapons out of the wrong hands. However, your analogy of real estate and guns is misplaced. You kind of glossed over the 2nd Amendment in that analogy. You shouldn't need permission to exercise a RIGHT. You didn't have to register with the FCC to comment on here. A law that infringes on Constitutionally protected rights is no law at all. It's disconcerting how cavalier some people are with rights they don't appreciate. They are rights nonetheless.

UllerellU, you're a pretty ignorant soul. So the fact that I own firearms poses a danger to you? Does your government possess weapons? I suspect yes so tell me how your government poses no threat to you. Has your country, whichever it is, "evolved" to the point it can be trusted implicitly?

BeaverTerror, so, again, I ask you: what SPECIFIC gun law do you propose that would a) only affect the criminal element and, b) respect the 2nd Amendment?
Your goal seems to focus on controlling inanimate objects rather than affecting BEHAVIOR of those who misuse them. Would you support life sentences or the death penalty (in the case of murder) for people who commit felonies with a firearm? Would you support harsh sentences for people who lie on their form 4473 when purchasing a firearm?

If your goal is truly to protect innocent lives while not infringing on individual liberties i.e. law abiding citizens, you have my support. If, however, your approach is to disregard the Constitution I will oppose you to the bitter end.

Individual states decide what the laws are regarding PRIVATE sales of firearms. Sales conducted by licensed dealers require the very checks you state are necessary. It is already ILLEGAL for a felon to buy let alone possess a firearm. Making it "doubly illegal" won't stop the criminal element. That is the definition of a criminal. They DO NOT ABIDE BY THE LAW.

Regarding taking firearms "out of circulation", your argument requires either ignoring the 2nd Amendment or repealing it. Those are the choices assuming you believe in a society governed by law. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land. And a government that would ignore the Constitution is NOT a legitimate government.

How many times do we read stories of felons with guns committing more crimes? How many are roaming freely that probably should have never been released? Punishing the law-abiding majority with the flawed hope of stopping felons is foolish.

Fair enough. And I apologize for my insults. Now that we have toned down our rhetoric I would ask you, specifically, what additional "background check" would you want? Even if you went as far as outright banning of all privately owned firearms (which I certainly do not support) the one class of people who would still have them is the criminal element. So name the law that would keep them out of the hands of people who commit heinous acts. It escapes me how intelligent people can suspend logic in favor of emotional answers. And if you banned certain classes of firearms how do you take them out of circulation? And would you trust the same gov't that involves our country in conflicts you don't agree with to be the only entity with that same (actually greater) firepower? It's counterintuitive to me. Lastly, these so-called "assault weapons" function no differently from any auto-loading semi-automatic firearm. Come up with an answer that only affects criminals and we can talk.

If you're sincere I gladly accept your apology. It may surprise you to learn that many in the military are highly educated. I happen to be a physician. But even the lesser educated have literally VOLUNTEERED to put their very lives on the line for each and every American. You don't have to agree with the politicians and policies that put our troops where they are but know this: they are willing to DIE for you if necessary. How can anyone not respect that? We can agree to disagree on the policies of this country under any president but to denigrate those who have sworn to defend the Constitution and you and I (and write a blank check with their lives to do so) is a bit too far. They should be entitled to a little more respect.

BeaverTerror, and I wonder why you're not one of those intellects who "stayed home and got master's degrees." More likely you majored in adult bedwetting....maybe you got a PhD in that. You're not worthy to be in the company of those you denigrate. But I guess we've done our job since you're able to flap your gums with vile proficiency not having to worry about repercussions. I challenge you to go find a soldier or Marine and tell them to their face what you spewed above from the safety of mom's basement. But you won't because you're a eunuch.

Come and take it, eunuch.

P.S. You were born to be a sheep. "Oh, gov't protect me from those evil mentally ill military people...oh wait, that means those mentally ill military and police people must protect me from those mentally ill civilians who believe in personal liberty and responsibility." You put the idi*t in useful idi*t.

BeaverTerror, I must have hit a sore spot since you assume I called you gay. I just said you had no testicles...i.e. a eunuch. Ironic how you denigrate members of the military calling us mentally ill yet you only want them (and not the citizenry) to possess the "fake metal p*nis." Are you a paranoid schizophrenic eunuch? And I still want YOU to volunteer to come and take my "fake metal p*nis." Maybe you can bring me a cup of coffee when you do....no latte, soy boy.

BeaverTerror, I think it's clear to the world which one of us is mentally ill. But I'll leave you with this: if the day comes that my firearms are deemed illegal to own I want YOU to come take them. You don't deserve the blanket of freedom that I, and people like me, provide to you to run your insane and incoherent mouth. People like you don't even know which bathroom to use. Now go back to your mom's basement, fix your man bun, drink your soy boy latte and if you ever grow a set of testicles I invite you to put me in my place.

Beaver Terror, go back and listen to yourself. You ramble like a crazed lunatic and yet you worry about people like me who revere liberty. You have no understanding of the Constitution, liberty, how weapons work, how laws don't affect those who break them BY DEFINITION, and on and on and on. Name the law that would keep guns out of the hands of criminals. It doesn't exist. And like it or not, YOU don't get to decide what kind of guns I need. Deal with it.

BeaverTerror, Nah, I've never traveled abroad. Only 27 years in the US Army...2 years in Iraq with armor units, a year in Afghanistan with an infantry unit, multiple operational tours in places I can't name. I'm hardly terrified of anything, least of which is a keyboard warrior like yourself who pretends to know jack about me. I've been in multiple firefights...not just keyboard sniping like yourself. I suspect you live in some gated community and have the advantage of living a protected life to have the gall you do to tell others what they do and don't need to defend themselves from the predators of this world. I'm convinced all you gun hating people are compensating for being scared of your own shadow and want ARMED jackbooted government thugs to do the job you are incapable of doing yourself...i.e. defending yourself. At the same time you refuse to acknowledge the FACT that (in the US) the government has NO DUTY to protect the individual. THAT is reality.

Karroly, kind of like people (like you) who call others "paranoid" because they dare carry a gun for self defense. I'd say you're too "simple and narrow-minded" to understand REALITY.

BeaverTerror, you can also "easily" drive your car down a crowded sidewalk. What stops YOU from driving YOUR car down a crowded sidewalk?

You claim gun owners are cowards. Seriously? What is more coward? For me to own a gun because I know evil exists or YOU advocating that some "benevolent" government (with guns nonetheless) take my guns on YOUR behalf because you fear me, an "imbecile?"

Regarding your comment on the murder rate in the US, I would remind you that most countries don't keep statistics on murder rates let alone distinguish between justifiable homicides versus murder. You fear "the people" having access to guns yet you blindly trust "the people" in government being the only ones with guns of the most potent variety. I'll trust an armed populace every day of the week over the "enlightened" elite.
