    unless those features cause a person to go mad and murder massive amounts of people I don't see what the point is been outlawing them.

    so why make it illegal? it's just an ordinary rifle.

    What I am arguing, and arguing both explicitely and clearly, is that the features mentioned are not "purely cosmetic" because they do serve a purpose.
    They are cosmetic. They do not make a firearm any more or less dangerous than one without those features. They do not make mass murderers better shooters. And judging by your extreme ignorance on the subject of firearms those features are not going to make you a better shooter.

    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Face it! You got pwned. You argued that some features are "purely cosmetic" even though you know that they have a function.

    Now that you have proven me right, you're trying to bait me into some other issue in order to distract attention away from your pwnage.

    Your efforts will FAIL as hard as your argument that those features are purely cosmetic did


    Now you lie. I NEVER said the features I discussed were merely cosmetic, other than commenting as I did after this in the message above.

    Rather, you are running (again) into outer space trying to justify foolish statements as now you claim:

    1. You completely don't care what makes firearms more deadly
    2. You want civilians to shoot inaccurately
    3. You want civilians to have little control over their firearm when shooting.

    Rather, you just want to argue "cosmetics."


    A .223 is a "cosmetic" and inferior similarity to a NATO 5.56. As another example of being "cosmetic." And another example of why the anti-gunners debate irrationally. You have to claim you don't care about deadliness, accuracy or firearm control to maintain your claim - thus making your 'gun control" issues nonsensical.

    "reduces recoil" is functional; not cosmetic

    I said nothing about a feature causing a person to go mad. I merely pointed out that saying those features were "purely cosmetic" was both untrue and ignorant

    Functional does not mean "makes it more dangerous"

    You are still failing.

    In the commission of domestic crime they are no more dangerous.

    I am done with you.

    Good day.

    Why are you only talking about that. It's not the question that the OP asked.
    If you build a man a fire, he'll be warm for a day.

    If you set a man on fire, he'll be warm for the rest of his life.
