31. You can stop with the pretense.

 

Now lets amend to that bill and make it regulated to stop unlicensed guns.


What part of "owning a gun is a right not a privilege" do you not understand?

And "licensed"? Theres something like 4 states that require it, I.E. almost nowhere in America are guns "licensed".

I do not support Assault weapons. It is not a mistake.
Why do you need an AK-47?


I don't actually own any, nor do I have any desire to, however...You have given no reason why people shouldn't own them, and we do not live in a nation with a department of needs. Make your case, or don't, but know full well that "just because I say so" doesn't cut it.

Have plans to mutilate some wildlife this weekend?


An AK fires a 7.62 round with is roughly ballisticly equivalent to the 30-30, one of the most popular hunting rounds in history:



That's the AK round center, and the 30-30 round on the right. So the question is, are you planning on knowing what you're talking about instead of spouting canned talking points, any time soon?

.50 caliber guns - again .......Why do we need this type of dangerous gun?


We live in a free society. What people own isn't subject to "need" nor your understanding of any particular individuals needs.

Make your case, or don't, but know full well that "just because I say so" doesn't cut it.

We have to start somewhere.


You mean the national firearms act of 1934 and the gun control act of 1968 weren't "a start"? The fopa of 1986 and the brady bill from the 90s? Those weren't "a start"? Surely the Lautenberg amendment was a start?

And if none of those were a start, and we haven't made one yet, kindly tell me and everyone else where it ends.

I have also been with the NRA in the past and it is what they send you in the mail.
Fear mongering pamphlets about taking your gun.
Don't give an inch or they'll take a mile.
Total brainwashing......


And yet here you are interpreting the "arms" in the second amendment as "some guns but only those which I approve of".

You're an extremist, trying to project the pretense that you're moderate. I'm under no duty to pretend with you.

Of course the NRA doesn't make the guns, but its what most people identify with.
How about I'll use Gun Manufacturers and the NRA? OK?
I am digging on the NRA since they turn a blind eye to the problem they help to proliferate.


When will you and those who think like you get it through your heads:

The nra and gun manufacturers are not responsible for the illegal choices of individuals.
