    An AR-15/M-16 is chambered for a cartridge that was designed and intended to be used for shooting ground hogs and other varmints not people.
    I'm guessing that this is some sort of unbelievably lame effort to try to define a new class of “bad” firearms to push for having banned. Previous efforts at defining and banning “Niggertown Saturday Night Specials”, “junk guns”, and now “assault weapons” have largely failed. The public has come to see through these terms, and to realize the deception on which they are based.

    I think the OP hasn't really thought through what it is he's trying to do, but I think he's imagining that if he can create a new term, “People-Punching Guns”, he can get some of the public to be convinced that guns described by this term should be banned, or at least severely restricted. I don't think he's gone as far ahead as trying to define which guns fall into this category, or which criteria would be used to define it.

    One could start by looking into how the firearm is marketed and to whom. And by asking "what could this gun be good for outside of the military?"

    It would at least make it easier for others to know what you mean.

    For the record, the term has been used before. (Feel free to research it if you want.) And like opendebate, I am totally against the idea of confiscating handguns used for self-defense or weapons designed for hunting. It's only when some civilians would insist on a "right" to military-grade weapons that I begin to question their motives.

    but wasn't that the expressed intent of the founders? for a well regulated militia to possess weapons sufficient to prevent the standing army of government from overwhelming any mass opposition

    Sure they exist.Although I guess you could use it to punch dogs, cats, cars, trashcans and other stuff.So calling it a people punching gun might be deceptive since it can be used to punch other things.

    "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"

    The only firearm I can think of coming close to being a "people puncher" would be a 12 ga. shotgun loaded with less than lethal shotgun rounds like the "Bouncer" that fires two plastic balls that when it hits someone it's like getting hit with a baseball traveling at 80 MPH.

    Works good on pesky black bears, most of the time. Always remember to have a back up round of a double 00 buck or a rifle slug. Pissed off bears are extremely dangerous to your health.

    But when you go to the link you'll notice that liberal/progressive cities and states have outlawed less than lethal ammunition for some reason.

    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"?

    Oh, yeah you're right that could be interpreted that way. No, I don't mean I think those quotes aren't real (never even crossed my mind) I just don't think they prove the original intent behind the 2A

    I have no idea what you mean by "people punching gun".

    For this discussion, here is my gun of choice:
    http://www.google.com/url?sa=t&sourc...71778758,d.aWw

    I chose this one because I served in Afghanistan with it. The purpose of this firearm is to lay down supressive fire against soft targets during small squad tactics.

    This firearm should be available for civilian purchase so that the civilian population is better prepaired to perform small squad tactics in defence of their homes and neighbors during emergincy situations, such as the next LA Riot or Hurricane looting mob.

    And of course, zombies

    I can't respond to your poll if I don't understand the question. You obviously don't know enough about guns to understand the question that you asked.
    If you expect people to be rational, you aren't being rational.
