    How is asking you a question "lying"?

    So, the disparity in gun murders, as adjusted for the number of guns, is not all that great.

    Color me surprised.

    If that data is at least in the ball park, that's what I'm saying. So where do we go from here? If I'm off base, let's discuss it.

    Yes.

    See, I knew that. Thats why I asked him to post the numbers.
    That they blow his argument of the water is why he didn't bother to try.

    That's what happens when you don't let the truth get in the way of your ideology.

    Hope my math is right.
    You have statistically proven that the number of murders in a country is directly related to the number of guns in that country. You probably didn't intend that, but the truth has a sneaky way of revealing itself. Thank you

    You mean the truth that, gun for gun, the murder numbers are about the same?

    Still waiting for you to support your argument.

    Be sure to explain how, if the availability of guns is the explanation for the relatively high number of murders, how it is the number of guns goes up every year, and yet the number of gun murders is about the same as it was 35 years ago.

    THEN tell us how banning 'assault weapons' will have any significant effect on this.

    And THEN tell us how a ban on 'assault weapons' does not violate the Constitution.

    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.
    Do police usually carry these sorts of weapons? Why should citizens be allowed to have them when law enforcement doesn't?

    How is that a relevant standard by which to determine what firearms are protected by the 2nd?

    To answer your question:
    Depending on the specific police department, police usually carry some sort of 'assault weapon' in the car, either in the passenger compartment or in the trunk.

    Police here in Phoenix generally carry AR15s, and some full auto stuff.. (mp5s being the main one).
    George Washington didn't use his freedom of speech to win the war with Britain... He shot them.

    The PD in the town I moved from had a USGI M14 and an M1928 Thompson SMG.
