    An AK or M16 can be effectively used for any legal purpose someone might have for a firearm (with the obvious exception of waterfowl hunting).

    This clearly includes any class of firearm you care to mention.
    When the Constitution was written, one tenth of 1% of the populous were nut cases.
    Today, the numbers are far greater.
    So, to protect the people, much more strict firearm regulation is necessary.This seems to be not known by the gun-loving conservatives.

    Make it legal, or not, it really doesn't matter since no individual possesses the resources or wherewithal to construct a nuclear weapon.

    I doubt it. You may try to prove this if you want.

    You do know that "nut cases", as determined by law, are already not legally able to buy/own/use guns, right?

    Tell you what-
    YOU can love and tolerate the junkie trying to kill you and rape your wife.
    I'll put lead into his torso until he stops.
    Afterwards, we'll see if you've changed your mind.

    My mind is not changed, but, do know this, it would be a case of "over my dead body".
    And your approach works ?- more and more guns.....more and more prisons...
    Check the stats, even if they are not to be trusted.
    Why is India so much lower?
    The people?
    The religion?

    If so, I have found the problem, but not the solution. The solution is for Darwin and time to handle.
