    i dont like the idea of the government intruding on us (even though I know they are) but I just think they've gotten to big and they need to clean up their own mess and not try to take away our rights, we need more rights not less imo

    What "rights" of yours are they taking away by a ban on assault weapons and high capacity magazines?

    There is no legislative proposal to take away the right to bear arms:

    "Machine guns have been banned in this country for decades. Even as it found an individual right to gun ownership in the Second Amendment, the Supreme Court made the following observation: "Like most rights, the right secured by the Second Amendment is not unlimited," that it is "not a right to keep and carry any weapon whatsoever" and noted "the historical tradition of prohibiting the carrying of 'dangerous and unusual weapons.' " That opinion wasn't written by some wild-eyed liberal - it was written by conservative Justice Antonin Scalia."

    interesting words...."unusual or dangerous"...
    assault weapons and hi-cap mags fail to live up to that unofficial test.

    machine guns ( automatic firearms ) I think, can be regulated ( not banned) more than semiautos( based upon their inherent functionality)...semiauto should not be banned primarily because the functionality of those evil assault weapon is identical to many many other weapons that are not scary looking and not on anyone's ban list....

    I understand a principled and thoughtful approach to the issue is not something you are interested in, but it's something you might want to entertain someday.

    If that were the case, the 1994 - 2004 ban would have been successfully challenged in court. No one could prove your claim.

    careful.. the anti-gun side of the argument is chock full of people who believe the only "real" violations of the 2nd amendment is an outright ban on all firearms..... nothing else counts as a violation to them.

    it's akin to arguing that cutting the vocal cords out of your throat is the only "real" violation of free speech rights

    What's the difference between a .22 and a .223?
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Link to a single post I have ever made stating I want a ban on all guns? If you can't, then you Sir, are a liar!
