  • LOL it IS America... how else do you expect us to change the channels on our TVs?

  • FUCK YES!

    Oh, I love America's pro-gun ways. See that, gun banners? America loves guns. :3

  • Handguns are one thing, military grade weapons are something else. There should have instead been a poll about a ban on assault weapons. That would have made more sense.

    What on Earth is an assault weapon, anyway? What, is it the pistol grip? The bayonet lug? Or is it just because they look scary? I mean, I can understand magazine bans, but what the fuck is so bad from a functional standpoint from an "assault weapon?"

    It's just a manufactured term that sounds frightening and was designed to make people pay attention to ignorant pro gun ban campaigners. Give me one bad thing about "assault weapons" (except for the magazine capacity, of course) that makes sense, and I'll consider your argument.

    FYI: Military calibre rifles typically have very low penetration capabilities.

    If you want to be educated, and actually know what you're debating, spend ten minutes on this video.

  • -.-

    I'm talking about personal protection. A person can use a handgun to defend themselves if necessary.

    Who the hell needs an AK-47, or an M16A2 or any other crap like that to defend themselves as a civilian? It's totally unnecessary. What possible use could having an assault rifle have other than to kill people en masse?

    Also, are you trying to say "allow the sale and possession of a machine gun but not the ammo clip"? WTH? Does that even make sense?

    It's not a machine gun, first of all. All civilian weapons manufactured since 1986 are legally required to fire in a semi automatic configuration only.

    Secondly, how on Earth are those rifles any different from conventional sporting rifles? You have failed to state that, despite it being the question I asked you.

    Thirdly, please use the correct nomenclature. It's 'magazine.' You really show your ignorance on this subject quite effectively, you know. It's helpful. :)

  • Wow! A samusaran thread where people are actually talking about the proposed topic? I'm shocked and astounded!

  • I don't care. So I'm not a gun owner. So what?

    Regardless, there is no practical purpose for owning a projectile weapon for personal use other than a handgun. I'm not talking about hunting rifles, that's a different issue altogether.

    You don't have to attack me for using the wrong term and then use that as an argument to find my entire opinion as completely baseless. That's rude.

    I love how you failed to answer the question. Still. Good job, buddy. Furthermore, isn't it just good form to know a little something about things before you form an opinion on them? I mean, it seems reasonable to me.

    Now, unless you care to actually answer my fucking question about what makes scary looking military rifles so terrible beyond their ability to accept high capacity magazines (which, by the way, most handguns can too) then I will just ignore your inane and ignorant posts on this matter.

    Cheers.

  • Stupid troll. Don't get your panties in a wad just because I see a problem with civilians owning assault rifles. Poor Comrade Pants feels threatened because I think there should be a ban on certain types of weapons.

    Damn it. Go soak your head already.
