    I'd explain what a TItle II weapon is that requires a class III tax stamp but I doubt he'd understand it based on the stuff he posts on this subject

    And don't give me the crap that its my rights vs your safety You gun restrictionists have never come close to proving your case
    In the old west, the sheriffs used to make the cowboys turn in their guns before entering town and it did save a lot of lives. Last year Britain which has strict guns laws only had 58 homicides from a gun while the US had around 8,500 or so.

    wow correct.

    assault weapon=term made up by the media to scare people.

    assault rifle=fully AUTO RIFLE DESIGNED FOR CLOSE RANGE ASSAULT,by even the definition of assault rifle,they arent available to people,hence why the left who accuses the right of using fear,uses tragedies to intill fear into people and uses made up terms like assault weapons to instill fear into people in an attempt to scare people into following them.


    maybe we should call the democratic party the party of fear.

    that was a local ordinance allowed by the tenth amendment. England banned handguns and their rate of violent crime and gun crime increased

    we have eased carrying concealed weapons and the idiotic clinton gun ban disappeared and gun crime has decreased

    btw England had even less crime before they started banning guns

    Same sorta nonsense which led to the banning of bayonet lugs in the 90s.

    switzerland mandates gun use and has a crime rate at about one gun crime for every quarter million people.that itself debunks your entire argument when the country with one of the lowest gun murder rates in the world issues fully automatic weapons to all able bodied men,and allows them to buy back their rifle converted to semi auto after their service is done.

    Hazlnut should know by now what happens when he is incorrect on this issue. I also know that the term assault rifle came from the waning days of the eastern front where both heavy battle rifles (the German Mauser 1898 and the Russian moison-Nagant) and pistol cartridge firing submachine guns were standard infantry issue and the thought was to combine the longer range power and accuracy of a battle rifle with the rapid fire capability of an SMG so that a squad of riflemen could suppress enemy movement. THe US was the first to have something like that in the M1 Carbine's full auto cousin-the M2 but the real first "assault rifle was a German Job. it was the inspiration for the first widely distributed assault rifle the AK 47.

I'd call the first "iffy" and the second a clear step beyond "well-regulated." And then there's the issue of confidentiality. Unless a patient reveals that he or she is planning on committing violence against himself, herself, or other people, mental health doctors are sworn to confidentiality--which they should be. Should that confidentiality be broken in order to stop some people from buying guns that probably shouldn't buy them? Man...if anyone wants to tackle that can of worms, be my guest.
    Here's the form everyone must complete. You can see how it is worded and how each category applies. Just for the sake of knowledge, if you make the slightest mistake on the form, the dealer gives you a new form and makes you start all over again. That's been my experience.

    As to what a person reveals to their mental health counselor, I'm pretty sure that if you are determined to be a danger to yourself or other people the therapist can have you committed for observation and evaluation. I'm not a therapist, but that is my understanding.

    yeah if someone cannot kill you with a 20 round magazine of 556 NATO or 762x39 COMBLOC chances are a bayonet isn't going to do them much good

    My favorite bit of bovine excrement was from UpChuck Scumbag-D NY who claimed the only purpose of a pistol grip was allowing one to shoot from the hip

    that is really turdlike stuff. its far easier to shoot a conventional stock from the hip. Ask anyone who does trick shooting. When I was an RA at the USOTC we'd get bored and shoot rounds of skeet from the hip. a pistol grip is very uncomfortable in that position. it is easier to shoot a rifle with a real pistol grip one handed because you tuck the buttock under your armpit to stabilize it-a maneuver you do when opening a door or scaling a wall.
