    I say absolutely. I would rather die than let that happen.
    Do you own any illegal or unregistered firearms?

    Are your guns stored in accordance with the laws of your state/county?

    Then toss that copy of The Tuner Diaries in the trash and chill the f out...

    Do you understand the point Hazlenut? The point is that if sweeping legislation for registration and confiscation were passed which would be completely unconstitutional and thus completely illegal government action, there would be no such thing as legal arms.
    Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.

    At this point in time, most politicians on both sides of the aisle seem to have realized that draconian gun control measures are a dead issue, and that they cost the proponents of same their seats at the table.

    But the price of liberty is eternal vigilance, as one Founder said. We should indeed be jealous of all our rights and guard them carefully and, dare I say it, be "paranoid" about any smallest violation thereof.
    There is a difference between being vigilant and being paranoid, regardless of how you present the word paranoid with parenthesis to try and temper the meaning.

    Most of the time you didn't know it was happening because the methods of restriction have been done under regulation and not legislation.
    I've never needed an assault rifle to hunt with nor to target shoot with. No one needs an automatic weapon outside of the military (not even law enforcement) and there is a reason why they were banned.

    Paranoid is an unreasonable fear. Most of the reasons here are more than reasonable.

    They were not banned, they are restricted. You have to pay a tax and go through a background check. Some states banned them but not the Feds.

    The 94 assault weapons ban was a joke. It was based on cosmetics that had little to no affect on the weapon or the use of one in a crime.

    Well, that's where judgment comes along.

    BTW, that wasn't meant to be a personal attack or a sarcastic comment. I wanted to make sure that both sides of the debate were on the same page.

    Unfortunately with those leaning to far left or right, their judgment is clouded by partisan bigotry.

    Yes -- I understood that in the far-fetched hypothetical, you could live out your fantasy...

    I get it -- *if*....

    we need them for the same reason civilian law enforcement officers need them. For self defense in urban environments. are you so ignorant to believe that civilian law enforcement officers do not have access to automatic weapons.


    I own weapons for many reasons--one being in case people like you try to confiscate my weapons based on your idiotic concept of what I need

    I'm an Army reservist and own a civilian version of the M16-A2 for practice on my own time to stay sharp.

    What harm is there is allowing me to own an actual M16-A2? The only difference is the 3-round burst.
