    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    I spend way too much time responding to this **** with logic, reason, facts, figures, linked sources, hard data and common sense.... and two days later I have to do it all over again for the next ignoranus. I need to quit doing this.


    Maybe from now on my reponse to any gun-grabber post needs to be just one line with two words...

    you lose
    As shown above, England has 1.6 intentional homicides committed with firearms per 1 million inhabitants vs the US at 32.5 intentional homicides committed with firearms per 1 million inhabitants.

    We all lose.

    freedom was lost in GB with their gun ban that only made things worse

    if you factor out inner city black drug crime driven homicides, America is really pretty safe.

    Obviously it is not, because unlike with civilians, police are authorized to use a 17 shot glock.

    Bud, almost everyone I know who owns a Glock owns some 17round magazines, and they are prefectly legal. Try again, but this time do a little research.

    HE just spews idiocy on this topic. He has no clue and he has never come close to explaining how a city (its CHicago I was picking on) can make such idiotic two faced pronouncements

    Proof from a non right wing/non racist's source?
