    more mental masturbation from the left side. lets charge the perp for substantive violations rather than making laws that lots of people who do no objective harm can be charged with and stripped of their gun rights (which of course is a goal of some of the gun banners)

    Well to persist with debunked tripe rather than admit ignorance is tiresome. Also, inexperience with firearms combined with ignorance makes one's position quite irrelevant.

    Not if you think the current laws on the books regarding armed robbery/assault are enough.

    so does my personal ownership of arms since age nine and my military experience give me legitimacy to ask these questions?

    but you presume the perp committed assault/armed robbery. nothing establishes that was the circumstance. maybe his violations consisted of violating laws restricting the possession/use of arms

    england's rate of gun violence went way up after they banned guns (not just magazines)-only bolt action rifles and shotguns are generally legal there-no pistols no military style rifles

    and so you think if magazines are banned-people who refuse to give them up ought to be jailed even if they have no other criminal activity?

    that's gonna get a lot of people killed

    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    Homicides in 2009

    Handguns 6503

    Rifles 352

    Shotguns 424

    Other not specified 96
    or type unknown

    Firearms type not stated 1828

    Knives or cutting objects 1836

    Blunt Objects 623

    Personal weapons 815
    Hands, fist, feet, pushing, etc.


    After hurricane Katrina New Orleans had gangs with AK's and other weapon types. I would very much like to have my own in this situation.

    Also this list is not a complete list, didn't put poison, strangling, explosives, and all that jazz in the list.

    Source for that claim? Because I know of quite a bit of evidence to the contrary.

    You always have that right, regardless of ownership and experience.

    Then I would point you to the history of prohibition.

    Please learn the difference between needs and wants, its a big distinction.

    I asked you to quote me saying I needed one, which you failed at so you chose to quote the vote. But that vote reflects a want, just as I don't need one for sport but would like one.

    EDIT: By the way, what was my lie? I'd love to hear you nail this one down.


    Look dude, you were the one that chose "Yes, for self defense" rather than "Yes, for recreational use". If you want to change your vote, you might try pleading your case to a moderator. Until then, you are stuck with the public record of your choice at the top of the page.

    what exactly are you doing here when you already admitted you don't feel a need to own such a weapon?

    because of statist stupidity but doctors have different restrictions on drugs than I do and that doesn't mean they aren't civilians

    where is the proof that cops are not civilians
