    Gun Control

    Catwabba...your credibility is nil on this subject.

    This statement yet again shows that you have refused to educate yourself on the topic. The AR-15 is a design. The Colt AR-15 is made by colt. AR 15 I designed by Eugene stoner. The m-16 is not the same gun, though it is cosmetically the same(looks the same). The internal parts are different so it isn't the same gun. It fires 3 round burst and I technically full auto and not legal (without stamp level 3 license).

    What is the difference between:

    might appear to have the makings of a zippy one liner designed to make the right wing heart go pitter patter, but it is false. Not only are many victims NOT at the scene of the crime they don't even know a crime has occurred. Things can be stolen that you own without your knowing they are gone. Your credit cards can be accessed and you do not even know about it to later let alone not being there at the crime itself.
    I am sure that the emphasis was on violent crime, you could hardly defend your property with a gun (or have the police show up) if it were taken while you were unaware of the theft. Does the brave police officer use their "bigger gun" to fight identity theft? Do the police catch criminals and recover that "unknown" stolen property. Get real!

    This is very clearly the case with virtually all anti-gun loons.

    Of course it won't, that's the point. That's the whole point. The AWB will not be a hardship to anyone, not to me, not to you, and not to criminals either. The purpose of the AWB is not to reduce gun crime or accidents, it's to set the legal framework for future restrictions. The only way to pass that framework is to have no effective hardship on gun owners at the time. Years will pass before the next set of restrictions is brought up, and anti-gun will wait until another mass-shooting to talk about it (and the weapon used in that future mass-shooting will be AWB compliant).

    The goal is to disarm the civil militia, and that has to be don slowly over a long time.

    Re: Gun Control

    I was wondering what a "well regulated militia" was when the amendment was written.

    No . The emphasis from that particular was on trying to hit me with a right wing zinger.

    As such it was crushed and flushed.

    It is sad and pathetic that one cannot simply accept that there are legitimate differences in a question of public policy without having to resort to intentional and fraudulent deliberate distortion of a persons position not to mention silly name calling.

I cannot think of one single time in my entire life where I needed a firearm to do my job and I am 63 years old. Not a one. To pretend otherwise that you or anybody else is some crime busting superhero is just a sad joke.

    Why can't you be truthful here? You and I both know the reason why so many on the right keep insisting that they need comparable weaponry as the police or military have. And you also know the reason you insist on it rings rather hollow with most Americans who sympathize not in the least with the paranoia that fuels it.
    So police officers are a class of prestige above non-cops and you want to see people become youtube sensations instead of defending themselves. Im not a cop and I have been shot at once and had a someone brandish a gun on me twice. So your personal experience really doesn't count for everyone's. (thankfully I didn't need a gun to get out of the situation in all these cases but that's not the point.)

    The M16 (officially Rifle, Caliber 5.56 mm, M16) is the United States military designation for the AR-15 rifle adapted for semi-automatic, three-round burst and full-automatic fire.

    I assume one that takes responsibilities for its actions. AKA if the militia does something wrong the wrong doers get punished. *shrugs* but I dunno.
