    Re: Guns

    LOL

    pistol grips, bayonet lugs, folding stocks were the items that made something an assault weapon

    military history had no relevance

    and a semi automatic is no more deadly with those features


    it was an idiotic law and one of its biggest supporters admitted its only real purpose was to desensitize people to more draconian gun bans in the future

    olympic target weapons were banned by this idiocy

    NRA-ILA : Clinton Gun Ban


    "It might be 50 years before the United States gets to where Britain is today. Passing a law like the assault weapon ban is a symbolic--purely symbolic--move in that direction. Its only real justification is not to reduce crime but to desensitize the public to the regulation of weapons in preparation for their ultimate confiscation."

    LOL, and you buy the scare tactics used by the likes of Krauthammer.

    No TD, it is the nature of the weapons, being either automatic or semiautomatic that concerns me. Otherwise, I don't care enough to look into it. Afterall, a weapon is only a tool. And a tool that will never be completely banned here, largely because of the mythology we've attached to our weapons.

    AUSTAN GOOLSBEE: I think the world vests too much power, certainly in the president, probably in Washington in general for its influence on the economy, because most all of the economy has nothing to do with the government.

    when you use automatic to describe the banned weapons you further demonstrate you are clueless on this subject

    Krauthhammer supported the gun ban for the reasons I mentioned

    you thus are wrong twice in one post

    later

    YOu are still missing the point of our debate. I've made no active call to ban anything. I have honestly state I have no objection, and I don't. And you are misreading what I said above as well, or more correctly, merely picking out the part you want to focus on and not the intend of the entire message.

    Semiautomatic weapons concern you? What would you prefer, muskets?

    When the sniper is on your side you love them, when he's on the other guys side you hate them. They are effective at killing and cause your enemy alot of psychological stress. Theres nothing scarier than knowing a sniper is in the vicinity.

    Godzilla would be pretty scary.

    Very true statement.
    Nov '06 Baghdad. I was on a street corner handing out soccer balls to kids when my driver took a single shot to the forehead. Every other mission after that had a whole new feeling.
    As a dreamer of dreams and a travellin' man, I have chalked up many a mile.
    Read dozens of books about heroes and crooks and I've learned much from both of their styles!

    Sorry to hear that about your driver. You guys have my utmost respect and give me hope for the future of this country. Some of the punks I read in here make me wonder wtf but knowing theres alot of young men like you out there bucks up my spirits.

    Oh I know exactly your position. Your posts indicate that you consider gun owners to be paranoid, and a bit beneath your fine sensibilities and you use gun threads to heap your disdain on such people.
