    Re: Why would you own an assault rifle?

    I own a couple of assault rifles for fun. Even though I shoot them for a living, its still fun to go out in the front yard and crank a mag or two off. Plus, you can't beat it for shooting pests such as racoons and possums. On another note, I don't think I should be able to own a 100 round drum for either of them. Alright TurtleDude, lets hear it. I didn't continue our debate in the other thread about this.

    I have an M1 Carbine because it is an histroic piece of WWII, so I didn't vote because my reason is not included.

Times have changed, I'm not saying that gun laws would prevent these shootings, but what I am saying is that not having these laws in place gives people a more easy means of doing so. If somebody were to obtain Assault Riffles illegally, we know that the only thing that can be done is to step up enforcement, there is no question whether if we had a law in place would it have stopped this event. Nobody needs an Assault Riffle for protection, and if you do, then you have bigger problems on your hands.

    As long as there are people who think they should decide what I need, I need as much firepower as I can legally own.

    the M2 was arguably the first modern assault rifle

    great little gun-Bought a commercial (junk) copy when I was a law student. Got a hand built one on like new receiver by Fulton Armory about 25 years ago and then several CMP guns. My son started shooting one at 8-its an easy weapon for kids and ladies

    I am always on the lookout for sales on 30 MI carbine-ammo-fortunately one of my dad's friends had a ton and when he moved into a retirement home he asked me to "dispose of all this ammo" which was fine with me since he had 2000 rounds that still worked

    YOu must have been ignorant of all the coverage. I think Catawba-in his haste to call me a racist, confused the "million mom march" which was led by a Clinton operative and was mostly white with the Million man march which was an African American gathering

    Someone already made that point, but comparing the US to third world countries only indicates that we are not as bad as some third world countries.

    If we compare apples to apples however as the more recent James Brady study has done with countries of similar wealth and population size, the US is way above everyone else in the the number of intentional firearm homicides per 1 million population.

    Would this be with guns that are "only cosmetically different" than legal guns? If so what's the beef?

    you can rant all you want about different countries but you seem to ignore the facts that as Britain banned guns and Australia followed suit concerning many weapons, their crime rates did not decrease but got worse while here in the states we liberalized carry permits and the Clinton moronic gun ban sunset and crime went down

    Have you figured out the difference between the Million Mom march vs the Million Man March?
