No! Only crazies own assault rifles.
No, they are too expensive!
No, no need to.
Yes, for self defense
Yes, for recreation and sport
Yes, to perform my patriotic duty if the nation is invaded
Yes, because it's my constiutional right
Yes, because I'm one of the CRAZIES!!! hahahahaha
you WANT TO RESTRICT OUR RIGHTS-the burden is ON you to prove that your proposed restrictions will do enough good to overcome the undeniable interference with our rights
you have spewed thousands of posts and you have yet to post one bit of evidence supporting your schemes
its pretty obvious you have no real knowledge in this area. You don't even own a gun yet
its his burden to prove it.
the fact is, the great majority of gun used in crimes that were seized in NYC, were originally purchased OUT OF STATE.
what does this tell us? this tells us that on average, guns used in crimes in NYC are being bought by assholes in Virginia, NC, SC, FL, and TX, and then brought up to NYC to be sold to murderers & rapists.
this needs to stop!!!!
Further, research they cite by Wiebe (2003) indicates that 94 percent of gun-related suicides would not occur had no guns been present. Since keeping a firearm at home increases the risk of homicide by a factor of three, it is not surprising that guns are more likely to raise the risk of injury than to confer protection. In fact, they claim that every year there are only about 200 legally justified self-defense homicides by private citizens.
In short, there appears to be substantial evidence that removing guns saves lives. Interestingly, while the rates of assault with knives and guns in the United States are similar, there are five times as many deaths from guns. And many of these lethal guns can be obtained in the U.S. without a background check. Close to one-half of gun acquisitions in the U.S. occur on the secondary market, and sales between individuals do not require a background check.
For instance, undercover sting operations found that 94 percent of licensed dealers at gun shows in Ohio, Tennessee, and Nevada completed sales to people who appeared to be criminals or straw purchasers, and 63 percent of private sellers at those gun shows sold guns to purchasers who stated they probably could not pass a background check. Furthermore, while lethal “assault weapons” (semi-automatic firearms) have no known civilian use benefits whatsoever, the ban on their use in the United States was lifted in 2004."

" The 100 round mag jammed on him. Because bigger mags do that. Had he brought 20 10 round mags and just reloaded, more people would have died as the chance of a jam would have been less."
I love the insanity of your statement. So 100 round mags are defective, but I still want anyone to be able to buy one on the internet and it's a good thing he had one ? If they don't work why do you still want them to be sold? This "slippery slope" BS has gotten ridiculous.
And I ask you the same question how many died from his homemade bombs? None at Columbine either. Guns are far more available and just as deadly.
And why is this nutcases AR-15 so much less culpable that those "evil" weapons that killed Brian Terry?

I will end the night noting the crap spewed by Catawba when it claims "no known benefits"
they feel the same way about all guns. That is merely the opinion of a far left anti gun hack unsupported by any evidence
of course Catawba laps that crap up without even subjecting it to any critical thought
one of the benefits-to deal with people like that if they start trying to imposing their idiotic views on the rest of us.
there was no known evidence that the clinton gun ban did anything positive
