    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    It's not the looks that people oppose.

Answer: nothing.
    I didn't say that anything changed. You wait until a certain age to teach gun safety. It's not for preschool kids.

    Then why else would a rifle with the same rate of fire and caliber of most hunting rifles be banned except for the cosmetics looking "scary", also the AWB's addressed those cosmetic changes in the weapons specifically.

    Not really, they are dangerous when they aren't controlled.

    Really? I've been taught gun safety by my dad since age 6, fired my first gun six months after.

    seriously, has your dad never given you a gun? it's how they show their love.

    he says daughter, since I can't give you height and upper body strength I want you to have this. if you don't want a dislocated shoulder listen carefully.

    my sibs and I all got bb guns before we were 10 anyway. mine was actually my dad's when he was a kid. good times.

    it's not a bad idea unless your kid's an idiot.

    I think this thread is a joke.

    Are you telling me that there is no functional difference between a hunting rifle and an assault rifle?

    You can't control how a bullet ricochets.

    YouTube - The Truth about "Assault Weapons"
    "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

    Whenever you find yourself in a debate about the AWB, make sure you point this out. I've seen people be really ignorant about guns. This was a good video. Bookmark it.

    The typical assault rifle round is a short range, low power round.

    The typical hunting rifle round is a large caliber high power round.

    the .30-06 round is much more powerful then a either 5.56 or 7.62
