    Re: Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

    Just my 2 cents from someone who has mostly used shotguns and knows little about handguns and rifles. I've enjoyed this post - note how the pro-liberal posters on this thread appear to be constantly caught with the deer-in-headlights look! One item that I've caught from libertarian and conservative posters is that every hunting rifle can be perverted by liberals into an assault weapon... ultimately assaulting our freedom in the process!

    Thanks for the info. I had better stop procrastinating and get moving to purchase a semiautomatic (thinking of a 40 or 45) and a 357 revolver before it's too late. As posted above in other words: "You're not paranoid if they're really out to get you." What clear thinking individual cannot see the handwriting on the wall?

    how many weapons can you shoot at once? I suspect it is only 2, the number I have.

    It seems to me here that that most pro gun regulation types think that the second amendment exists for hunting and recreation purposes.

    That is completely wrong, and the irrational fear of an inanimate object makes many of you look childish. You make think that there is no other purpose to a weapon other than to kill and your exactly right. That is what the second amendments is there for.

    As if we haven't learned from history that ceded our rights to the government only leads to more and more control on there behalf.

    Stop trying to give away my rights, I'm not trying to give away yours!

    The 2nd Amendment is all about guaranteeing that the people will have access to an effective means to kill other people, whenever killing those people might become necessary.

    Hunting and recreational shooting are just things we do with our guns, in the meantime.

    Re: Obama to Seek New Assault Weapons Ban

    I've never shot a gun before.
    I am two Grateful Dead concerts away from Marxism (hate the Grateful Dead, btw)
    I think that hunting is stupid, unless it is your means of food.

    But, I think that legislation against the right to own guns is ridiculous. In an episode of the West Wing there is a push for banning the "cop killer" pistol. When a member of the Bartlet administration went to talk with a Texas Senator who was opposing the Bill he responded with a similar notion:

    This legislation is banning certain guns. However, there are many many many modifications of the certain gun which will continue to be legal. Furthermore, the only "sane" legislation that an anti-gun spokesperson can pass would be a ban on the entirety of guns, and indoingso they would have to find a way to take back all the guns that are already in the hands of citizens, as the argument against gun is only one of "that a gun can kill".
    If we are to pass legislation against things that kill, then we cannot just single out guns. I wouldn't need a gun if I really wanted to kill someone; that is a ridiculous claim. If you are going to ban guns, then you are going to also have to ban: sharp-things (swords, knives, kitchen knives, mechanical tools, tools found in hospitals, etc) blunt-thing (hammers, sledgehammers, rocks, etc), natural disasters (hurricanes, tornadoes, floods, earthquakes), and finally, humanity (as it is never the gun that decides to fire on someone).

    I do, however, support legislation that forces gun buyers to know w.t.f they are buying; like licenses.


    But this whole "anti-constitutional" complaining I see the Libertarians and the Rest-Wingers doing is ridiculous. Y'all do realize that our "rights" are "privileges" as any of these can be taken away from you.
    I am sorry to inform y'all, but our Constitutional rights only apply as long as the Government sees fit.

    I think it's pretty clear that the hardcore firearms enthusiasts believe they need weapons for a pending overthrow of the government, and that "liberals" know that overthrow is coming and use "firearm regulation" to try to disarm the "patriots" before they can rise up. We really are on different planets.

    If there's to be war between the, dare I say, classes, then I hope to god I am the first casualty.
