    Why do you "need" an AR 15? [W243, 2001]

    If you honestly want the answer, take 5 minutes to watch this.

    re: Why do you "need" an AR 15? [W243]

    I was hoping to hear some actual defenses of assault rifle ownership, but all I heard was "You can't ask us anything! It's in the BoR!", like that settles the issue.

    For the record, I'm fine with people owning AR-15's and whatnot. I'm even fine with people owning automatic weapons, so long as the meet the legal standards as defined by the ATF regulations.

    But this guys contempt for Americans that want sensible gun laws, and to discuss the liability each class of firearm poses, is what will lead to the 2A getting wiped out eventually.

    Then you should watch the entire video.


    Can you cite an example of that contempt?

    An AR-15 is not an assault rifle. An assault rifle is a gun in which you can flip a switch to go from one shot per pull of the trigger to multiple shots per pull of the trigger.

    And I have yet to hear of one single "sensible gun law" that is actually proven to do what is claimed that they will do.

    Seriously? Take your own advise and watch the video yourself, the guy is seething with contempt because people ask the sensible question of what the average citizen needs weapons like an AR-15 for.

    I'm not going to give you a transcript of the video.

    The latter would be a machine gun.

    Proven? What do you count as proof? I've yet to see any evidence whatsoever that gun ownership is having any effect on violent crime levels. In fact, the stats tend to go the other way around.

    I watched every second. If that was all you heard, YOU should watch it. In fact he never even said what you said was all you heard "You cant ask us anything"

    Try listening to what he says, not what you WISH he said.

    Just because I didn't come away with the impressions you did, that doesn't give you the right of way to start insinuating I didn't watch the video.

    You're allowed to formulate your opinions on how gun control proponents come across, and I'm allowed to do the same in regard to gun right proponents.

    It would be an assault rifle....
    Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh said, as he rejected food and Humanitarian aid, "We are not seeking to fill our (bellies), we are looking to break the Israeli siege on Gaza."
    Looking out for the people of Gaza.

    Correct. But your first sentence was in direct response to what was being talked about in the video. Which had nothing to do with machine guns. Ergo, you were talking about AR-15's when you said "assault rifle".

    Pretty sure you know what "proven" means. And its not our job to prove anything. It's your job to prove claims asserted by you.
