    Oh Lord. Not again.

    Just read the other 5 threads on the subject, I'm tired of talking about it. Short version: no gun law would have stopped this.

    i don't know. but why is it a bad thing to take a look at what's done currently and see if improvements can be made? for example, semi automatic availability?

    Wait...you think semi-automatics should not be available? Please clairfy what you mean here. What type of weapon should someone be able to legally carry?

    non auto/semi long arms ... what might be expected to be used for hunting and self defense

    handguns should be allowed only for leos and the military

    Thank you for demonstrating your ignorance on the matter. According to you we should all be carrying bolt action rifles down the street.
    Btw, the government loses a significant quantity of guns every year. According to an Associated Press article published in 2001:
    Loose inventory controls are notorious in government agencies, as shown by the Immigration and Naturalization Service (INS) that has “misplaced” 539 weapons, including a gas-grenade launcher and 39 automatic rifles or machine guns. Six guns were eventually linked to crimes (two guns had been used in armed robberies, one confiscated in a raid on a drug laboratory and two others during arrests. One was being held as evidence in a homicide investigation). And in July of 2001, it was reported that the FBI lost 449 weapons, including machine guns.
    Who do you think has those now? I'd wager it's not law abiding citizens... So nevermind the fact that the police are under no legal obligation to protect you or stop crimes, you're just plain advocating giving superior weaponry to bad guys. Got it. Thanks, that's all I needed to know about you.

    i have no issues with hunting, nor do i have issues with a gun used for personal protection, although i do believe in strong regulation. not knowing a lot about guns, can you tell me a why a person would need to get off that many rounds that quickly? a plausible situation, i mean.

    I encourage you to do some actual research and not believe every little thing you've been told. This has been discussed at length in other threads on these boards. Forgive me for not wanting to rehash all those pages again. Bottom line, court cases have ruled that someone can be raping you in your home and the police don't have to respond to the call or enter the house even if they do decide to drive down your street.

    So you want the government and criminals to have hand guns and semiautomatic weapons? I would rather law abiding citizens have those kinds of weapons. The government and criminals are the last two groups who should be trusted with weapons that have an advantage to what the civilian population has.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius
