    No, he's already explained ad infinitum. You keep bringing up the same debunked talking points as if the discussion never happened. Have you been around firearms much in your life? Ever changed a magazine on the fly, cleared a jam?

    Most firearms restrictions are nonsensical and only come into play after the crime. The government doesn't typically know when you buy a unlicensed firearm from an unlicensed dealer, and that happens every single day. Same with ammo. The restrictions only serve to restrict those who follow the rules and allow us to add on charges when we catch the perp with an unlicensed firearm.

    one of the tactics of lefties trying to derail threads where their "feelings" are getting squashed is to demand answers to inane questions over and over and over

    Civilian - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

    A civilian under international humanitarian law (also known as the laws of war) is a person who is not a member of his or her country's armed forces or other militia.
    "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

    How many times can a guy be proven wrong in gun debates before he slows down with the ignorant tripe?

    Well who knows

    maybe they will revolt and rise up to take guns away

    then history will repeat itself

    No matter what happens, what we have got
    are the assault rifles and they have not

    i have seen his angry posts but none which serve to convince us why restrictions on the owning and using of arms are unreasonable

    yes. what does that have to do with this discussion?

    being able to charge the perp, isn't that a good thing?
