    Vote on whether you think any American not convicted of a violent crime should have the right to own a fully automatic assault rifle like an AK-47 or an M-16.

    It's not about the constitution. Temporal said he'd want automatic weapons to defend himself from SWAT teams if the government ever became tyrannical. You then asked him why he would want to defend himself from SWAT teams. He just told you that. Seriously, reading comprehension. It's good stuff.
    For: legalizing drugs, gay marriage, abortion, guns, universal health care, public sector jobs, nuclear power, free education, progressive taxation

    Use a chainsaw launcher and bear cavalry.
    Much more psychologically effective.

    I voted "No." I think that owning an assault rifle should be considered a privilege, not a right, and so federal and state governments have the right to regulate them.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    that sort of mentality is why I own weapons and want free citizens to be able to own automatic weapons. Those who think gun ownership is a privilege are ultimately the enemies of freedom

    It is a privilege because if you commit certain crimes it can be taken away. If it were a right, no matter what, everyone would be able to own a gun.

    I didn't say gun ownership was a privilege. I said ownership of an assault rifle is a privilege.

    Good for you for being unable to understand nuance.
    Also, we need to legalize recreational drugs and prostitution.

    gee that's a moronic definition

    Freedom, your ability to marry, and your right to vote can all be taking away from you if you commit a crime

    same with your freedom of association etc

    MASSIVE FAIL

    Again its a disgusting position. under the constitution there is no difference between the standard infantry arm of the USA and a semi automatic version thereof
