    The ban is an attack on gun owners.

    Since gun fanatics believe there is no difference in these types of semi automatic military style rifles and others available it will not even be a hardship, much less an attack on gun owners.

    But the point is moot since no assault rifles were used in this murder. According to Connecticut law, no "assault weapons" were used in this murder, either.
    Jerry read what I wrote ok..I never said there was an assault weapon used...

    That ban is no longer in effect Jerry. The Governor suggested reinstating it:

    The ban is an attack on gun owners.
    How so?

    Sounds like he's just playing politics by trying to do something that wouldn't have stopped this shooting, or any other one, but at the same time makes it look like he's taking action.

    Maybe it's just me, but I don't think our laws should be made for face-saving strategies.

    Not all at once, no. They'd start with much smaller steps, such as the Brady Bill and the fraudulent “assault weapon” ban.

    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    Re: Gun Control

    Me and the wife discussed it last night. Now, everyone here KNOWS I love my guns. Since I got my first Daisy Model 28 pump BB gun I have love to shoot cans (and when mama wasn't looking, maybe a sparrow or two.) That developed in to enjoyment of shooting trap. I killed my first deer before I was 14.

    But I have been thinking pretty hard about it and I (we) have reached our decision.

    I am going to keep my Browning .22, my Ithica 12 ga., and my Remington .3006. And Ol' Roscoe gets to stay in my nightstand.

    But I have decided to destroy my Chinese SKS and my Panther A3 classic. But what REALLY is bringing me down is that I have also decided to destroy my .30 cal M1 carbine my father gave me before he passed away. It is a 1943 issue with General Motors stamped into the barrel. It is truly a collectable.

    I have decided against selling them. That hurts too. No, we are going to destroy them.

    I am not worried about what I would do with them but more worried that some evil, punk, thief-in-the-night will come take them, (as has been done before,) and do harm to one of your children. Or one of my grandchildren.

    I am not saying anyone else should do this. But it's a free country and I am free to destroy them if I want to. And I do.

    You guys have no clue how much I hate doing this. Especially with the carbine. I love these guns. But my folly is not worth your pain.

    I will still hunt and shoot trap though.

    This is gonna hurt.

    It's GREAT to be me. --- "45% liberal/55% conservative"
