    The AA12 can be used for any purpose that any other gun can be used. You might not be able to -legally- hunt with it because of the magazine, but it CAN be used for hunting, should you choose to do so.
    Maybe we should ask why he needs the first amendment.

    It's not up to us as citizens of this country to justify our rights guaranteed to us by the constitution. Justification will only lead to loss of.

    Yeah it would probably come in handy in the situation. For home use I'd rather have a sawed off one though.

    There was an article in the New Yorker about the inventer of the AA12 automatic shotgun. Take a look at the video of this streetsweeper, and then explain to me why the NRA would approve its sale?

    That makes some sense to a degree. I am an avid gun owner and hunter and all-around outdoor sportsman. I don't need an assault rifle to hunt, thats for sure. In fact, that would be somewhat unsportsmanlike by my standards..

    But what I DO need is one of those good ol' street-sweeper's, for when that maniac with the assault rifle, points it at me.

    Get it? Can't get toothpaste back into the tube.

    The question is and shall always remain, where do we draw the line? Give an inch, they will take a mile. Smarter people than me will have to figure this one out.

    Gun Control and the 2nd Amendment

    New gun control initiatives are facing us - what are the feelings on here?

    Meh, I own lots of guns and I don't shoot animals or people.

    I do punch holes in a lot of paper.. and still maintain that the handgun that I carry has killed a whole lot less people than Ted Kennedy's car.

    Typical of the response from someone that doesnt know much about guns or hunting.

    Ponder, for just a moment:
    The AA12 (and every other 'assault weapon' can fire on round at a time, meaning that the effect on the target is no different than the same round fired from any other shotgun.

    Never mind, of course, that the AA12, by virtue of being full-auto, isnt an 'assault weapon' and therefore not affected by an 'assault weapon' ban

    It would be neat if the term assault rifle actually applied to the actual weaponry that it was coined for.

    ie: select fire weapons capable of assaulting a position.

    "I believe in common-sense gun safety laws, and I believe in the second amendment," Obama said at a news conference. "Lawful gun owners have nothing to fear. I said that throughout the campaign. I haven't indicated anything different during the transition. I think people can take me at my word."

    How is this anything other than a blatant lie?

    My first thought is that "here we go again" with this idiocy from the anti-freedom side. My second thought is that Holder and those of like mind should be dealt with immediately, the least that should happen is immediate expatriation for violating the constitution and for the worst offenders......public execution.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
