    As a society, we have much more to fear from suicidal teen crazies than we do from criminal types. Criminals wants money........Nut jobs want to kill!
    Fully automatic weapons are already unconstitutionally banned by the government. If people want to kill themselves, then so be it; I don't care so long as they don't take others out with them. But we can't start infringing upon rights because of what people may or may not do.

    I have not had the time to look up FBI statistics on this (feel free to do so if you have them)

    Further, I would be in favor of legalizing & taxing all drugs (to competent adults) as the only way I can see of ever stopping the drug violence prevalent in this country.
    Accidental shootings aren't very common. When it comes to accidents resulting in death, the number is less than that of gravity I believe.

    Funny, you're running your mouth pretty hard for someone who doesn't know anything about me or my platform. Maybe you can go look at my post history before you open that pie hole of yours again and prove yourself a fool.

    IF he'd been a SA with either FBI or DEA, he'd refer to them by name. That leaves OIG, which doesn't handle drug cases. It's primary function is addressing financial mismanagement.

    So, no, I don't buy it for a millisecond.

    No, they're not. They're very, very heavily regulated.

    I think there should be one regulation as far as firearms go. It should be illegal not to carry a gun on your person, in public.

    For most circumstances they are all but banned. Many are, some you can get proper stamps/permits for which I think is all BS.

    Well if you're a violent criminal you don't have the right for it to then be infringed.

    You don't have the right to nukes or flamethrowers as those are not "arms", so again, nothing is infringed here.
