    No. I did not.

    Colt - and every other manufacturer similarly named - pulled off the flash supporessor, named it something else, and sold a gazillion of them.

    Your claim that the previous ban wasn't long enough to significantly reduce the number of these guns out there is demonstrably unsound.

    Why do you refuse to accept the truth?

    Then you didn't purchase a Colt AR15, or high capacity magazines during the ban as you originally claimed.

    Poppycock! All we have to do is look to other wealthy nations with gun control to see that it works.

    Re: Gun Control

    I was just talking with my office manager about the big fear of "semi auto" guns today. We were discussing one of mine and one of hers and which one is more dangerous. Mine is a semi auto 22 pistol, hers is a 22 revolver. Mine has a 6 round magazine, it can be loaded with one chambered and a full magazine, which is referred to as 6+1. Hers is a 9 round revolver. Considering that each fires one round every time you pull the trigger, her rovolver has a higher capacity so it can do more damage without being reloaded. And reloading the revolver is very fast using a speed loader, every bit as fast as a magazine change in mine.

    Must be that "semi auto" part that makes it so dangerous.

    If that is what you guys believe, the ban will be no hardship on you!! Thanks for sharing that!

    He didn't claim he bought a high-capacity magazine; you're simply lying about that.

    An AR-15 called something else is still an AR-15. It's baffling that you cannot understand this, so simple and obvious a concept it is.

    And Catawba, thoroughly defeated, attempts to deflect, backpedal, and change the subject, as is his habit.

    Unless e criminal is an idiot, he won't even stop. I think you're missing the point.

    You can repost it ad infinitum (that means "to infinity," or more simply, post it over and over forever); it doesn't matter. Why it doesn't matter has already been explained to you multiple times, but it's beyond your grasp.

    They were okay with it, no standing army and all, all of the cannons were in private hands. Of course, if anything happened, you had to bring your cannon out with you to help quell the threat. That's not the case today, therefore the intent of the founding fathers is no longer being followed.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.
