    I'll never understand how some people who run their mouth in support of the assault weapons ban don't actually know what it banned. Maybe before you get on the soap box of yours and sticking your nose into other people's business claiming that people don't need a fully automatic machine gun, you should see what the assault rifle ban was all about

    There is so much to correct in this I don't even no where to start. First off, we have the second amendment, it isn't about need or hunting. Secondly, machine guns are not assault rifles which are not the arms that are covered in the "assault weapons" ban. Third, there is no such thing as an "assault weapon" it is legalese. Fourth, machine guns and rifles fire the same calibre ammunition, the difference is simple rate of fire. Fifth, you aren't an American so it isn't your business how, when, or where we exercise our rights. And finally, no one gives a **** how many guns anyone else thinks we "should" be "allowed" to own, that is no one's ****ing business.

    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    I never claimed to know **** my friend. You are quite right.

    So. Indeed I lacked the nessecary education on the ban.

    So anyway, to continue my ignorance. Regardless of the ban and whatever it entails. Why are people so concerned about guns when they have 40 at home? and when Obama gets elected run out and buy 60 more? that makes little to no sense to me.

    If that many people with guns hated the president, they would have shot him already. Now drop the race card bull****. It makes you sound like an idiot.

    So what is the proper number of guns a person should own?

    By making your snide remarks you sure acted like you are an expert on the subject.

    That's the one thing you got right.

    So anyway, to continue my ignorance. Regardless of the ban and whatever it entails. Why are people so concerned about guns when they have 40 at home? and when Obama gets elected run out and buy 60 more? that makes little to no sense to me.
    None of your business either way, so drop the point.

    The one guy has 40, what about the guy who has none? What about the child who will grow up wanting guns? What about our rights and our liberties? Do any of those count or is your insanely idiotic hyperbole the only option we have?

    Whats hyperbole? It was a crappy example I agree but did you honestly think I was implying that someone actually owns 100 guns because Obama is president.

    Man it must be terrible to live in a country where you gotta stock up on guns and ammo to feel safe. I'll stick to my gun free existence in Canada (yes I know you can own one privately, but you dont see guns except on cops here)

    Pardon the gun enthusiasts for taking Barack Obama seriously. Stupid them, they heard his AG say his Administration wanted to enact more gun control, so they thought he meant what he said. The morons, taking a politician at his word.

    Also, I've got a news flash--George W. Bush isn't President anymore. If I recall correctly, Bush doesn't hold any political office anymore, so it's hardly relevant.

    Let's also 'not pretend' that Barack Obama being black didn't earn him the Presidency. He had almost no experience before becoming President. No other candidate with so little experience would have been taken seriously.

    I do believe the Secretary of State Hillary Clinton summarized my point nicely: "Sen. McCain will bring a lifetime of experience to the campaign; I will bring a lifetime of experience; and Sen. Obama will bring a speech that he gave in 2002."

    hy·per·bo·le
       /haɪˈpɜrbəli/ Show Spelled[hahy-pur-buh-lee] Show IPA
    –nounRhetoric.
    1.
    obvious and intentional exaggeration.
    2.
    an extravagant statement or figure of speech not intended to be taken literally, as “to wait an eternity.”

    The "What about the guy who has 40 guns..." blah blah crap was hyperbole. It's an exaggerated statement which glosses over the vast majority of the contention. You may not have wanted people to recognize it as hyperbole, but it is what it is. The guy with 40 guns, it's none of your business how many more he buys or for what reason he buys them. Until he infringes upon the rights of someone else, he's free to do as he likes.

    Meh, I prefer to be free and to have the rights and liberties of the individual recognized. I think it's fine that I can live in a country where someone may be paranoid and can stockpile guns if they so choose. Just shows how open everything is.
