    See where this is going?

    Now, define assault weapon, as it is currently a made up term with no sound backing.

    And if you really wanna get into it. Pick ANY "assault" weapon and why it "should" be banned. I will crush you.

    Bring this anywhere you want, I will take it up to a private debate if you would like.

    You are obviously not very educated in the area of firearms.

    Assault weapons are not necessarily "fully automatic" and just FYI. You can not purchase a fully automatic weapon without an FFL class III license which includes yearly updates, fees, and heavy monitoring from the ATF. You also can not purchase fully automatic weapons manufactured after 1986, and you can only own these weapons in FFL 3 states. They are very limited.

    Assault Weapons as deemed by the government be it state or federal, are semi-automatic. I am going to do this once more, since people still seem to miss the point of the AWB.








    Can you tell me the difference between those three rifles?


    Spoiler: They are all the exact same rifle. The Ruger Mini-14 chambered in .223 win/5.56 nato.

    This rifle is semi-automatic. And just to let you know, even though it's the same rifle, one of them is considered an assault weapon while two of them are not. Can you guess which one?

    He says more efficient at murder as if people use them in murders commonly.

    The most efficient murder weapon is a disposable weapon. "Assault weapons" arent very disposable unless you've got alot of "disposable" money as well.

    Also, "assault weapons" are not concealable worth a ****.

    The top 5 firearms used for violent crimes are the mossberg 500 shotgun, and 4 very small pistols chambered in .380 acp and 9x19mm.

    "Assault weapons" are the dangerous ones though right? I swear to god pretty soon we are going to have to register our baseball bats because they're "too dangerous"

    As long as those that own guns realize that they are part of the Militia and are willing to defend this nation, then I don't care either way.

    Bodhi, whenever someone says they are part of a militia they automatically get labeled a crazy by everyone.

    Its best to keep that kind of stuff under wraps.

    I agree with what your saying though.

    I say it to get a reaction, not because I want to piss people off, but because it is true. The gun freaks like to label anybody that disagrees as hoplophobic, which is much more crazy than simply sticking to logic.

    Actually, the administration doesn't get to vote at all, except as private citizens. The constitutional amendment process doesn't include the executive branch.

    Agreed. Sticking to logic makes a better case than name calling.

    I understand peoples fear with allowing greater access to guns but as we all know the world is a dangerous place with or without guns.

    Not to mention "with or without guns" doesnt ever apply to everyone. Only to those who follow the laws for/against guns.
