    I believe assault weapons should be banned because i dont believe civilians have no need for them and should only be used for the armed forces members. Its simple as that.

    I honestly believe that as well.... the problem is over half of the firearms named on the bill were not assault weapons. They were just thrown in there for good measure. Is that just ok? And how is my property, my neighbors property and everyone else's property any of your concern?

    Than why not ban machetes? Or pocket/kitchen knives?

    Why not ban fast food or big sodas (oh wait... they tried that in NYC )? Automobiles and Alcohol are really big killers. Those things are a threat to the safety of the people.

    And why must the left insist on protecting people from themselves?

    And why does the left believe that banning firearms will make unarmed, law-abiding citizens safer from armed criminals who happen to be criminals because they follow and respect no law?

    Tell me what is the point of a civilian owning an assault rifle? Assault weapons should be banned because they serve no purpose but killing many people in little time without having to worry about reloading. No one needs an assault weapon to protect their house.

    I am 100% in favor of gun ownership. I believe that every American citizen has the right to own a gun or guns, and to use weapons to protect themselves if that arises. Saying that however, I do not believe that a citizen should have the right to own military grade assault weapons.

    And why does the left believe that banning firearms will make unarmed, law-abiding citizens safer from armed criminals who happen to be criminals because they follow and respect no law?

    We do need to be protected from the insane, the semi-insane , and the criminals......and the NRA !
    We are soon to have the quality of government to do this....but today ?
    Obviously NOT.
    only someone who is both hysterical and completely ignorant about weapons would call common police self defense weapons "WMDS".

    your rants about the NRA are just pathetic

    why is it that the biggest haters of average people being armed are those who push an ever-expanding malignant government

    Nothing to see here. Just move along.
    its a stupid law that has no relevance to public safety. rather its an orgasm of anti gun culture hatred. Gun haters cannot fathom why anyone would own a gun and dismiss any reason for ownership.
