    I think you'll find that in the gun forum such wording will have the opposit effect.

    As for this alleged concern over full auto weapons.... they're already heavily restricted. Mostly you can't own one without a Class III license, which has some pretty stringent requirements, and the weapons themselves are mostly far too expensive for the average person to own.


    To my understanding, there have only been two incidents in the past half century where a Class III weapon was used in a crime, and one of those was a police officer using a duty weapon.



    It's much ado about nothing.

    Right, and most who visit the gun forum will take it as propiganda, not humor, because word games are the bread & butter of anti-gun.

    I am not sure what a "people punching gun" is so I will not participate in the poll.

    But to address the OP, yes I think the citizens should be able to have such weapons. Because a well armed society is a safe society.

    I would think that the armaments make the government fear the people, as it should be. Because the only other option is that the people, would fear the government.

    I suppose bullets do actually punch people.

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"
