    That's easy....can they be used in scary looking black guns? If so then they are, by definition, armor piercing and/or exploding....and heat seeking.

    You poker buddy will not use a couch to commit a crime with, you may have no idea of what your old buddy intends to use that weapon for, your old buddy may have a mental health problem that you are not aware of, every weapon should be registered to the owner who should have had a background check prior to purchasing a weapon

    So I should simply presume that everyone around me is a criminal? That's asinine.

    I mean really. Does anybody think the 2nd amendment includes selling guns to violent criminals? Does anybody really oppose making it illegal for violent criminals to own guns?

    If you think both of those things should be illegal, shouldn't there be at least some attempt to stop it from happening?
    Sorry but it is not my job to police people. If I wanted that job then I would have become a policeman.

    Also I should point out that not allowing criminals to possess or buy a gun is not entirely about violent offenders. It also covers non-violent offenders who have a felony. I should also point out that if a violent offender is not trusted enough to buy a gun then they shouldn't be out on the streets to begin with. And lastly (for now) banning guns from violent offenders is idiotic because that violent offender obviously does not care about the law and will continue to be violent. And even if it were possible to keep guns out of their hands while out of the penal system there are lots of other ways in which a violent person can continue to be violent. How much do you want to bet that I could link to a site that tells you how to make pipe bombs?

    Registration is not going to stop gun violence. A person that has a registered gun in their name is just as capable of committing a crime with that gun as a criminal. Might be rare but it is still a possibility. A background check is not going to stop someone that has never been considered mentally unstable from buying a gun.

    I can agree with that. On the flip side if a gun is found at the scene of a violent crime or maybe just laying in the street somewhere the police have a place to start looking for the owner or the criminal which ever the case may be.
    I confess, I did it, I let the dogs out.

    Typically the tip of the bullet is painted black. They have a hardened penetrator.

    This **** works though, because the masses are stupid idiots.
