    Precisely. What an abysmally uninformed set of restrictions. Like a semiautomatic rifle becomes a self-automated hunter seeker when you put a folding buttstock or a lugnut on it. Our idiot congresscritters instead went with whatever "looked scary".


    Any decently trained/practiced shooter can fire multiple well-aimed shots a second with a semi-auto, and a speed reload of magazines is accomplished in less than 2-3 seconds, depending on whether they have it stacked or are pulling from a pouch.

    But thanks, Congress! Due to your cracking down on collapsible buttstocks and 15-round magazines Now We Are All Safe!!!

    Banning Abortion and Guns would be the two biggest mistakes America could do.

    I love the NSA. It's like having a secret fan-base you will never see, but they're there, watching everything you write and it makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside knowing that I may be some person's only form of unconstitutional entertainment one night.

    We obviously need assault rifles because after we plug that deer or burglar the first time, we have to keep shooting it to make sure it's dead.

    Not sure who you mean by brainless idiots, so that's probably flavor text or hackishness.

    So what are assault rifles for? Killing evil government henchmen in the distant future? I can understand handguns, shotguns, etc, but an assault rifle that can be used to mow down a whole classroom of kids... not so much.
