    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.
    Assault rifles are illegal.

    If assault rifles are already illegal, then I don't understand the hubbub over this issue. Knowing that rocket launchers are illegal, why would you own one?

    Police officers are issued real assault rifles. what for? I "need" them for the same reason

    the issue is not the state of the art-be it a musket, a henry rifle, a winchester 94, a garand or a 40 watt plasma rifle

    the issue is that we should have the same basic infantry weapon our tax dollars buys for members of our "well regulated militia" or police departments or National Guard

    and my comment was about the second amendment-there are lots of brain dead idiots who say we don't need weapons that are not suitable for hunting. that is idiotic--as the bumper sticker says--If you think the second amendment is about duck hunting you are just plain daffy

    Killing people is not alway the worst choice. and when it is the only rational choice you have, then you want the tools to do it

    not quite true

    read the 1934 National Firearms Act and the idiotic Hughes Amendment. If you live in the right state and have enough money to say buy a Honda Accord you can own one

    I'd own an assault rifle to kill. Just like with my shotgun. I use it to kill doves.

    Well not just like assualt weapons are meant to kill people.

    you kill doves with an assault rifle

    you must be one hell of a shot

    btw I once held the Bolivian record for doves


    397 doves with one case of shells

    that was 15 years ago and I have not been back

    Yeah we are not worthy of your greatness

    Otherwise assault weapons have an explicit purpose and that is to kill people in war. Shotguns have their purpose too. And that is to kill game pretty much. Cann the two be interchanged sure. But one is to feed humans the other is to kill them.
