    Semi-automatics seem to be the choice of mass murderers. We don't know what other guns his mother may have had, but apparently she was a gun collector or enthusiast so Adam must have had an array to chose from, but he chose a semi-automatic....probably because it would hold 30 round clips and take out the most people and inflict the most internal damage.

    Banning the type of bullets meant to inflict massive internal damage would be a good place to start.

    Any gun that was designed for military use really has no business outside of a war zone, imo.

    Is it true, the military was the first to use "assault weapon" If so, then why is calling military style guns "assault weapons" such a problem for gun rightys?
    more idiocy in that post. If those weapons should not be in a place other than a war zone then I hope you call for disarming our civilian (repeat CIVILIAN) police departments

    They took her away, with no good reason. It's like your girlfriend is in Gitmo.

    Clearly, one well aimed shot will take out someONE. So the issue is with non bolt action, single round rifles? Any rifle or gun that holds a clip? Or just the ones that hold higher capacity clips? What then, is the difference between a guy with a rifle that takes 8 round clips, but who has 10 clips, and the guy who has a rifle that holds an 80 round clip, and he only has one? The time it takes to swap clips? Really? Is THAT the determining factor between acceptable murder, and unacaptable massacre?
    A quiz, hmmm. I think...a gun...that doesn't require manual operation between rounds....like say uh....a semi automatic would be acceptable for banning. How does that sound? Did I pass the quiz?

    anyone who wants to ban semi autos is probably a good reason for the rest of us to be well armed

    a double barrel shotgun would meet your moronic definition

    So...all semi-autos should be illegal? Does that apply only to rifles, or to all firearms? Explain how you would go about making a non semi-auto hand gun?

    I love knives.
    I ain't no knife expert but I sure do love my Gerber deer guttin' knife. It's so easy to wash out the blood and hair to.

    Hey, if you know about knives maybe you can school me about something.

    I stumbled across a knife during a unit clean out. It was left behind with a lot of other junk. It may just be junk too. I dunno. But it looks like one of those big Crocodile Dundee knifes. It's says stainless and China on it. It seems to be of pretty good quality but I'm no expert.

    Have you ever seen one like it before? Do you think it has any value?

    The police have my permission to be armed as long as they are trained, licensed and deputized. I'll even help pay for their weapons with my taxes.

    Btw, does "civilian army" ring any bells?

    Why should it be banned? Do you believe this would have ANY impact on a shooter who is facing no resistance at all?

    Or that if it did, this shooter wouldn't go to illegal avenues to posses such a weapon anyways?
