    I'm on the fence regarding AK-47s and M-16s. They really have no legitimate use and they're often used in gang crimes...but I realize that not everyone who wants to own them plans to go out and kill people. I don't necessarily think they need to be banned outright, but they should probably be restricted to a higher degree than handguns.

    Pipe bombs and nuclear bombs are clearly a no...They serve no legitimate purpose.
    The legitimate use of machine guns is the hosing down of tyrants and those who support them.

    If so, I have found the problem, but not the solution. The solution is for Darwin and time to handle.
    Of course it exists. What does that matter? You think you can use love and tolerance to stop someone from raping your wife or shooting your children?

    You're not speaking the truth. You're just regurgitating naive sentiments about love and tolerance, as if they were going to stop a rapist or a murderer.

    Sorry, but only guns will stop evil people, not appeals to emotion.

    Means you miss the broad side of the barn.
    Unless of course you are inside the barn at the time.

    Ah -- so your 'love and tolerance' line was just meaningless rhetoric.
    Thanks for clearing that up.

    So you admit that you cannot support your claim.
    Your claim is the basis for your argument, and, left unsupported, leaves your argument without merit.

    Do you really think the law is effective??
    The 'insane' are already banned from having guns.
    What more do you want? Banning them double? How ill that be more effective?

    I get you now. Misunderstanding... yes. It is BAD that the terror groups do that to us, and that is the point. If our government decided to go down the path of tyrrany, like Jefferson warned us about, we would be able to create the exact kind of havoc against the government that the terror groups are using against us. We would be able to defend ourselves.

    Navy, not Marines. I was the guy pushing the Tomahawk Cruise missile launch platforms around under water.
