well, we need handguns to pretect ourselves at least, and he voted to get rid of them...


these "assault" rifles you speak of are only in the hands of military and people who paid a 200$ tax stamp to legally own one.


the ar15's you might think are assault rifles, are just semi-automatic rifles that are black.

That's kind of his point, genius.

If you can say the same thing about the 1st amendment, why is the 2nd amendment any different? Why does the meaning behind the 2nd amendment require adjustments over time, when the other amendments are fundamental, non-changing rights?

Assault rifle bans are ****ing retarded. They ban things such as pistol grips, folding stocks, 30rd magazines, etc.

Do you know how long it takes me to reload my pistol? About 1.5 seconds, and that's slow for anybody who practices. I fail to see the logic of how limiting magazine capacity decreases the lethality of a weapon.

Is it up to you to decide what I need? No.

And there is nothing illegal about doing that, either. If I legally fill out the paperwork and don't lie or make a straw purchase for a convicted criminal, then I'm not doing anything illegal. If the gun dealer sells a gun to someone after I leave and messes up on the paperwork, you can bet the BATF will shut them down, even if it is a MISTAKE. It all comes down to the criminal anyways- they're the one breaking the law, not me. Don't ****in' punish me because they're bad people.

I was just clarifying that the real definition of an assault rifle (not the legalese political one) is an intermediate cartridge rifle, generally with F/A capability. I am a former US Army sniper, Ranger tabbed, and have been to SAMG school... I don't need to "quote wikipedia" to tell you what a rifle is.

paintballpimp: I think that thing you quoted is kind of outdated since you can have folding stocks/pistol grips/ bayo lugs etc. since the sunset of the AWB. At least I hope so because my AK has all that stuff.. I'm pretty sure the only thing is full auto or short barrels which you need special licenses/tax stamps for.

Yeah, it ran out in 2004, and he knows, he was just pointing out how stupid AWB's are. They keep proposing one every year, and they just keep getting scarier.

Not because 99% of the people that say this would never actually stand up to the SWAT team that would eventually come for you, but because the government would give people who already own these guns amnesty in the form of a grandfather clause, just like they did for people that owned fully-automatic weapons before they were banned.


If the government actually tries to seize firearms you can bet your *** that I would stand up to them. Just because you are a panzy and are willing to turn over your constitutional rights doesn't mean that everyone else is and that it is the right thing to do. Oh, fully automatic weapons are not banned either. They are pretty easy to get with the couple of hoops you have to jump through. I would suggest doing research on the issue instead of repeating what you've heard on TV.


Sigh.

I just don't think you understood what he was trying to say. You seem kinda slow anyway so we can forgive you.

The thing that pisses me off is all you ****ing people saying 'they're taking away my 2nd amendment rights'. **** that, the right to bear arms does NOT grant you the right to own any ****ing gun you want, it gives you the right to bear arms to protect your country. If you wanna do that, join the military. The Bill of Rights was written in 1791, saying that it gives you the right to own various [unnecessary] weapons is ridiculous! Times have changed, the context has changed, live with it.
You have absolutely no clue what you are talking about. Have you read any of the federalist papers about the right to keep and bear arms? You obviously have no idea what the intent of the second amendment was. It was intended so we could protect ourselves from tyranny of the government not be in the army. A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of the free state means that it is necessary that the US has a standing army. The right of the people to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed means that since there is that standing army that the government could use against its people the people have the right to keep any type of weapon in any place at any time. What part of "Shall Not Be Infringed" do you people not understand?

More fear mongering. No one is going to take your guns away. Come on the right has been trying to repeal roe vs. wade for how long? It's one of those issues people like to bring up when any opposing candidate gains steam. Oh he's for partial birth abortion, he supports the ban of all firearms. Blah, blah, ****ing blah. There's not chance in the world any president in our life time will ban semi auto weapons or firearms in general. Don't believe the hype. Vote based on REAL issues that actualy effect us. Foreign policy, economics, responsible spending/budget balancing. Divide and conquer is a fabulous strategy in politics.

It's an old out dated concept, there was no way the founding fathers could have forseen the destructive power of assult weapons

First they take away assult weapons, then they take away "high powered" rifles, then they take pistols, then shotguns soon we have no gun right's left. You bet you *** the next thing on their list is going to be air rifles, then air soft guns, then paintball guns, then TOY guns.

You give the goverment an inch they are going to take MILES.

Of course they won't ban firearms, that would be just too shocking.
Instead they'll ban ammunition, that makes more sense


I hate all these people who cry about how guns killed Jimmy, and if the government
would do more to stop people from buying guns, Jimmy would still be alive right now.

How about this; if Jimmy had his own legal gun, he might not have been shot down by
some ******* ganster with his illegal Glock.

And what gets me the most is the government takes MY money to fund BATFE and all this other **** that only limits my freedoms.
**** that. And **** all you people who think that I shouldn't have my rifles. If you had to deal with
any sort of **** in your life you'd realize that the government isn't always there to protect you. There are
bad men out there who only want to kill and steal in order to gain power and respect.
And the only thing protecting my family from those men is me.

Changing the constitution isnt really a presidential power anyway. Congress has the power to propose amendments but a no guns amendment would never pass anyway and interpretation is left to the courts which again would never support no guns so isn't this argument really kind of unnecessary?

Even though Obama wants to leave it to the states, we can't ignore how he feels about the issue. If Bush was for a draft, but wanted to leave it to the states, you wouldn't defend him just because he wanted it to be taken care of at the state level. A ****ty idea is still a ****ty idea.

Besides, if Congress passed a new AWB, do you honestly think Obama would veto it?

^And yeah, this thread has been derailed.
