    gee thanks



    This actually represents a big part of the problem here. I'm actually not interested in debating the intention of the 2A because I don't have a problem with individuals owning firearms. I endorse making restrictions like background checks on private and gun show sales, automatic weapons ban federal law.

    Define what sort of automatic weapons you wish banned, please.

    if the well regulated militia uses those arms, then so should they be available to civilians
    if not, no

    how about a sawed off, double barrel shotgun, 12 ga., barrels cut to six inches, with a pistol grip. Not good for hunting. Not good for sharpshooting. Not much good for anything, except perhaps "people punching."

    I have no idea with a "people punching" gun is but my answer is still yes. The only beneficiary of gun control is the government and I don't particularly want them armed when I can't be armed.

    Really? Can you please indicate where one can find the designated "primary" purpose of any firearm? Is this some kind of label stamped on the gun that I'm unaware of?

    You don't "buy" it?

    Like, you think those quotes aren't real? Or you disagree that those people meant what they said they meant? What exactly do you "not buy"?

    Would you mind providing a source for any particular firearm having the explicit "primary purpose of killing several people at close or medium range in a very short time"?
