TGT asked
Why is it that a city with gun laws so strict that you literally can't see one in a museum

http://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20130508/downtown/ban-on-displaying-guns-at-city-museums-should-be-lifted-ald-burke-says

has one of the highest murder rates in the country?



It's almost as if the city doesn't exist in a perfect bubble where banning guns stops them from being bought elsewhere and then brought into that city.

More like the overabundance of a violent gang and criminal based culture.

is that a Bushmaster assault weapon, Pud?

all those things look the same to me, just asking

like the Bushmaster that Adam lanza used to slaughter 20 third graders?

that why you posted the pic, to show your disgust with the ease that ass holes like him get them?

The two suspects were shot and wounded by the police,

You left out the part that they had a pistol (I thought they were like snakes in Ireland in Britain?) as well as a cleaver, an arsenal of knives and were on a rampage for 20 minutes, because the cops had to wait for someone to show up with a gun.

The picture is of a Russian made semi-automatic Saiga chambered in 7.62x39mm.
This is not an 'assault weapon' according to the BATFE.
It's ok that you are ignorant Norton. Nothing to be ashamed of.


Actually, this weapon would more likely be used on criminals such as Lanza, as many East Coast law enforcement agencies are currently purchasing these weapons.

oh not ashamed of being ignorant of all the many kinds of gun out there, Pud

I just have four handguns and a CCL, so far from being as knowledgable as you

They killed ONE person, injured nobody else, and neither did the cops, because those weapons-carrying cops are properly trained.
More than likely the "handguns" were replicas, or at the very least limited in ammo, because they couldn't just walk in to buy bullets in Wal-mart.

TGT said:

"We should not base our laws on personal dislikes"

yet, that is exactly what the party you vote for wants

your party, TGT, wants to pass laws doing prohibiting same sex marriage for example

and pass laws forcing women to give birth to the babies of their rapists

just because your party "don't like it"

get it yet?

Some guy just got killed in a home invasion here yesterday, Don't know if "Castle Doctrine" will apply. Story at helenair.com under local news..The comments section seem to be the prevailing thoughts around here.

These nut jobs give a bad name to responsible gun owners.















Everybody knows that Bloomberg, who tried to ban black rifles, should be shot by one of those pink ARs.

Only while many responsible gun owners and their major mouthpiece insist that the second amendment bestows the right to use violence to achieve the overthrow of a democratically elected government.

It wasn't just Bloomberg.

Curious to see how the NRA distances itself from these events.

not related to the second amendment

but I remember the national guard firing live bullets and killing college students at Kent St.

absolutely, our military in any of its forms will, on order, kill americans right here
