    Re: Gun Control

    We need to make sure that law abiding, mentally healthy citizens who are capable of shooting a gun are able to acquire a gun, while on the other hand make it much harder for someone who doesn't meet this criteria to get a gun. We also need to only allow people to legally purchase non semi-auto / auto guns. Because people we don't allow to get guns can get guns illegally, we have to be careful not to restrict the kind of person who follows the three criteria stated above from getting guns because the best way to protect people from a bad guy with a gun is a good guy with a gun.

    If an honest person who is mentally healthy (at least as far as anyone can tell), "snaps", and goes into a crowded place with a semi-auto he / she is going to do a lot more damage than if they had non semi auto, while on the other hand, an honest person with a pistol is still able to put a stop to a gunman with one shot.

    so you want to ban 95% of the handguns being sold today, and half the target shotguns

    I believe you have no clue what a semi auto is and there are more pistols that are semi autos than rifles or shotguns.

    and you have obviously no idea how fast someone can shoot a pump shotgun which can and often holds more rounds than most semi auto shotguns

    Wrong. A semi-auto is one trigger pull, one shot, no more dangerous than a revolver. You don't need to be telling people what rights they should have when you repeat this nonsense.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    Wonderful. Now, take a stance on your history lesson so I can teach you a lesson. Give me a target to shoot at

    Because the f*cking Supreme Court said so. D.C. v. Heller and McDonald v. Chicago. Defense of one's hearth and home. You don't need a Bushmaster to defend your home. And if you do, you probably have bigger problems to worry about than what Congress is doing.

    what gaping stupidity. the Supreme court never said that honest people cannot buy semi autos

    and I certainly don't need someone who has no clue what a semi auto is telling me what I need.

    Tell me what weapons does the second amendment protect in your mind?

    So your saying a semi auto pistol with 8+ bullets is just as dangerous as a revolver with 6 bullets that takes longer to reload?
