    See, that's the problem right there. Gun righters don't know half of what they claim and worse yet, they can't even agree among themselves on terminology and types of weapons. I see you guys constantly correcting each other. So if you can't agree on your own verbage, then how can you expect a novice like me to know more than you in order to ban the type of weapons that don't belong in our communities?
    Why not muskets?

    Hey, I thought it was all about self defense with you guys? If not then you do need to justify your possession of guns that don't belong in a decent, civilized, society......and by the looks of what I'm seeing on TV and in the polls...your justifications doesn't seem to be holding much water. The wheat is finally separating itself from the chaffe as I speak. lol

    Your the one who wants so called assault weapons and so called high capacity magazines banned when clearly the weapons used in these rare school shootings are not military weapons and are mostly standard magazines.You should know what the hell you are talking about instead of just uttering nonsense.

    So I asked the gun righty's, then what weapons should be banned? Answer: <crickets>
    Why would 2nd amendment proponents want weapons that are currently legal to be banned?
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    1. Anyone who uses a gun, any gun, during the commission of a crime gets capitol punishment within 45 days of conviction.
    2. Anyone who sells or tranfers a gun to anyone without going through the proper procedures get twenty years in prison for each offense with no time off for good behavior.
    3. Anyone who steals a gun gets capitol punishment within 45 days of conviction.
    4. Any felon caught with a gun gets capitol punishment within 45 days of conviction.
    5. No plea bargaining when guns are in the equation.

    Think that might help?

    I think it couldn't hurt to try.
    that is really stupid

    if you are going to kill people for crimes that do not actually hurt others you are telling the criminals they might as well execute every possible witness since that might lessen their chances of being caught and they won't get a more severe punishment. cops are going to be dying in droves if you pass that stupidity

    most mopes won't kill a cop for getting collared over a theft. IF they know they are going to die they will be killing cops left and right

    you need to actually think things through

    No, I can make ample arguments as to what use I can get out them, but really I'm not going to play that game because I shouldn't need to justify the second right guaranteed in our constitution and something held as a mainstay of free societies for hundreds of years. If you can't justify your prohibition, no matter the temporary effectiveness of the emotional manipulation used to favor it with others, then I see no reason why any calm rational individual should take you seriously, unless they have an authoritarian complex.

    Mass shootings would be impossible with a musket!

    Surely killers couldn't just obtain them illegally from black markets (that would be illegal!), nor could they use a knife or something else...

    Stopping these bad guys might go a long way to helping reduce crime and homicide across the board....

    •Corrupt federally licensed gun dealers: Federally licensed gun dealers send more guns to the criminal market than any other single source. Nearly 60% of the guns used in crime are traced back to a small number—just 1.2%—of crooked gun dealers. Corrupt dealers frequently have high numbers of missing guns, in many cases because they’re selling guns “off the books” to private sellers and criminals. In 2005, the ATF examined 3,083 gun dealers and found 12,274 “missing” firearms.

    See my post above regarding the black market and you will find your precious legal gun dealers are the worst of the lot. But I haven't seen a mass murder yet in this country that didn't involve guns. (cue nota bene) Not even Richard Speck.


    Did you know that more people are killed annually in this country from a gun than all the deaths of our soldiers during Vietnam War? Think about that.
