Wouldn't bother me Rong. I shoot them once a month for fun. Been shooting them since I was 6... one is my grandfather's gun... lots of history in that thing. If the leaders of our country, elected by the majority of voters, have a reasonable proposal to try and reduce gun deaths in this country that involves me not having guns... I'm willing to try it... but I'm confident my guns are not their priority.

BUT the reality of the situation is...YOU HAVEN'T EVEN HEARD THE FUKING PROPOSALS YET and you act like it is the end of the world. NOBODY IS COMING FOR YOUR FUKING GUNS and you throw a hissy fit.

Do you own or want to own an assault rifle? If so, why? If not, why the fuk do you care if they are banned?

Do you need to buy more than 2 handguns a week? If so, why? If not, why not support changing the requirements for FFL reporting of potential straw sales?

In short, why throw such an infantile fit at the mere mention of ANY gun regulation... when you HAVEN'T EVEN HEARD ANYTHING ABOUT WHAT IS BEING PROPOSED?

Here's a thought...

So gun owners are worried about keeping their guns and ammo.

Guns in the hands of responsible, sane adults are not the issue.

The problem is guns in the hands of mentally challenged individuals.

We need to focus attention and funds on helping those with mental issues.

So... Let's tax ALL ammunition at a 50% rate and use the funds to help the mentally ill.

"I never told you to fuk off"

Yeah, I know that Einstein."I" told "you" to f*#k off, I didn't say that you told me that. Either way your childish sexual innuendo response about your penis size confirms how mature you are. I have my picture and name posted on ST. If you wanted to find out who I really was it would be easy as opposed to you, who has no pics and has not posted his real name that I know of. Doesn't matter, if you like acting like that,that's your choice, I should be wiser and not let sh#t get to me. I just have a pet peeve for people who love to insult behind a keyboard so easily. But hey, that's the web, right?

"Come on, I only tried that once... it was a long time ago. Honestly, it isn't worth the mess."

Shitting on yourself doesn't count pal.:-)

I know. "I" never said that "you" said that "I" told "you" to fuk off.

Yep.


But you have to admit, an article that claims the Casper killing was due to the college being a gun free zone is idiotic. Well, I guess you don't HAVE TO, but you should be willing and able to.

Wall Slave, that isn't the point. The point is...

Why would anyone need assault rifles?

Why should anyone with an assault rifle NOT be required to provide PROOF that they are responsible enough to safely own such a deadly tool?

Why would anyone need to purchase more than 2 handguns in a 5 day period?

Why should anyone be allowed to buy tons of ammo via the internet ala James Holmes?

Why do gun nuts freak the fuk out at ANY MENTION of ANY GUN CONTROL MEASURES before the proposal is even off the table?

Why is the response from the gun nut side to arm teachers, many of whom are huge pussies who wouldn't know the first thing about shooting a gun and have absolutely NO DESIRE to ever use one?

Why are some idiots so quick to adopt such an ABSURD PROPOSAL but can't even consider proposed gun control measures they HAVEN'T EVEN HEARD?



Glad you survived those close calls.

You want to play semantics? Really? On an issue like this, you are going to boil it down to infantile semantics? Can we at least agree that a semantic argument should begin with the dictionary definition of the terms? Does M-W qualify?

assault rifle: any of various automatic or semiautomatic rifles with large capacity magazines designed for military use

How about we ban anything that a mentally ill person with little or no skills can use to kill dozens of people before responsible gun owners can even draw their weapons? How's that for a start?

Oh, right, here comes the "that could be anything... if the person is crazy enough it could be a hammer..."

And you seemed fairly rational at first.

.556 is low power round, designed to wound.

That has got to be the STUPIDEST and sickest thing ever stated in this "debate."



yeah... coyotes and children... no point in restricting access to those... hell, everyone should have those harmless little toys.

And there still does exist a valid 2nd amendment argument that can be made for high power weapons in civilian hands.

You really think so? Even though:

1) NO MATTER WHAT YOU AMASS, YOU WILL NEVER BE ABLE TO DEFEND AGAINST THE MOST POWERFUL MILITARY IN THE HISTORY OF THE WORLD (THE US MILITARY)

2) THE 2ND AMENDMENT WAS WRITTEN WHEN THE MOST COMMON FIREARM WAS A FLINT LOCK MUSKET

3) MODERN GUN OWNERS ARE NOT EVEN IN THE SAME BALLPARK AS A WELL REGULATED MILITIA


I'm pretty sure we have agreement, among the sane at least, that self-protection is the primary reason for owning a gun. Recreation is a close second... both valid. But to defend against a tyrannical government... in the US... that is absurd.

Simple,

before big clips and semi automatic weapons designed for killing people we did not have these murderers killing of 30 - 40 people. The NRA would say it not the gun that kills. But wait a minute we do punish drug dealers and have laws against possession of some drugs. So if we used the NRA argument for drugs there would be no illegal drugs--quite libertarian. Now the NRA argument of where to put blame is not consistent with the way this society has chosen to treat drugs and drug dealers. If gun regs were constant with drug rules we would also regulate guns. SCOTUS has said laws can be made for the regulation of firearms. Let's Regulate (BAN) these assault rifles

NO Citizens need assault rifles. If you nuts with assault rifles think you may need to take over the government I suggest you group together and come to Wyoming. Once here you first mission ought to be to take over the State Nation Guard Base at Guernsey. And before you actually attempt this absurd act that might have been condoned by Thomas Jefferson consider how well your Kevlar vest will hold up to the tanks and much more sophisticated artillery that you have no access to get a hold.

Hedge:
That situation ceased to exist about 80 years ago. Guns won't stop the gov't anymore. You might as well be talking about having your own horses to counter the gov't's cavalry.

That's your opinion, again repeated ad nauseum. It's not necessarily a fact though. Irregular asymmetrical guerrilla warfare tactics have been effective at times at defeating superior traditional forces or forcing them to a stalemate.

This is all hypothetical though. No one knows what form such conflict may take in this country at some point in the hopefully very distant future (if ever), and as such no one knows what the outcome would be. To suggest that YOU KNOW the outcome of a hypothetical future armed conflict, between the citizenry of this country and the government, is another exercise in megalomania.

I don't know the outcome of any future hypothetical armed conflict. Possibly thousands of Americans would be killed.

Of course firearms already kill as many Americans as a small war, every year.

It's a good thing we have all these guns - to prevent the hypothetical tyrants from killing thousands of Americans in this hypothetical conflict.

Someone help me with this reasoning: "we need our guns to defend against the US Armed Forces"

seriously?

CLUE: The US Armed forces can shut off all your utilities, water, food, in seconds

they can drop a 500 pound bomb on your "compound" from a Drone within minutes

you won't even see or hear it coming, all the guns you own won't mean squat


Oh, but our ability to "threaten" the US Armed forces is important!

really? You really believe the Depart of Defense is "scared" or "worried" ?

stick to buying more ammo, you lost the "government tyranny" thing 100 years ago
