I hope that it will, at least, discourage so-called "Gun Advocates" from using America in the titles of their organizations in the future. THese groups are ANTI-AMERICAN!

the language in the 2a is pretty clear - those "professional legal interpretations", which ill take your word for their existence, and scotus are bought and paid for cause the language is clear.

10. And you want things to remain the way they are.

I want the same regulations that apply to a tommy to apply to an infantry battle riffle. Horse, barn and all that.

I also want all extended clips to be made illegal...buy back programs to current owners with a deadline, after that point make them illegal to own. I am sure you won't like that.

I want concealed carry to be licensed with cause, not just the I am afraid of shadows or nebolous self defense, to be renewed every three years.

I want to close the gun show loophole.

But I guess I am a gun grabber.

14. I disagree with you for good reason.

1. When the Thompson was made restricted in the 30's there were actually very few of them in circulation. There are tens of millions of AR style weapons in circulation now. You can't put the cat back in the bag. You can't outlaw a gun that was legal to buy when it was purchased. So what have you accomplished - you've made existing AR weapons extremely expensive and you haven't made one person safer.

2. Again, this is against the constitution. You can't make something retroactively illegal. The idea that you will ever be able to accomplish this is crazy town. Even if you stop sales of new extended magazines, there are still hundreds of millions of them in circulation. The idea of a buyback is ok, but most are not going to sell them back.

3. Why is concealed carry a problem? I am unaware of any gun massacres committed with by a person with CCW. How will this make a single person more safe by making it harder to legally carry a firearm?

4. I want to open NICS to all people. This will effectively close the gun show loophole.

15. I was right...

Quelle surprise.

Oh and son, yes, they can do that...they can forbid extended mags, it's actually in the often cited Heller decision.

Have a good day.

You repeat NRA talking points all the time. That ground you are standing on...is really shifting.

When I actually toy with the idea of buying an armored backpack, that is a problem. When parents are buying those for kids...that is a problem.

Your right to own whatever do not supersede my right to life, you got it?

I really do not want to continue to have to look for cover everywhere I go.

Oh and I own guns.

You can make them illegal moving forward. You can not do so retroactively.

The constitution is very clear on this matter.

So go get as many guns as you can. Your logic is that of the Tom tomorrow cartoon.

You even said the occasional civilian massacre is the price the rest of us have to pay for your freedom.

Internal tranquility, and well regulated militia. They are both in the founding documents.

My right to life can't be squared with your right to a battle riffle, unless you are part of a well regulated militia.

You ARE that delicate flower in that cartoon.

35. I am sorry

But even Hamilton, ignorant boob that he was, spoke of militias, not individual rights, when selling the Second in Federalist 29. What would he know of original intent, after all he was there!

It is far from disturbing to say that you have a right to an infantry riffle as long as you are part of the militia. So, my other solution is...you want an AR, universal conscription into the National Guard, or state militia purposely created for this by your governor...and you will report for drill once a month.

That alone will reduce ownership, we know how allergic people are to actually serving

I am not the only one to consider the ...right to keep and bear arms wrong headed, without the other two clauses it is dependent on. These include in order, to ensure the security of a free state and a well regulated militia

Look, reality is the AWB in some form is coming back, so are limits on magazines, and at the very least universal background checks. The sands are shifting and the power of the NRA, I sure hope, over the political class IS OVER.

Oh and due to the second amendment, all of it, we need a national registry. If we ever mobilized I really need to know what the hell you pack for logistics reasons.

54. What poor deductions.

Tuscon was conducted with a handgun -not covered under the AWB. No effect.

Aurora was, ironically enough, made less terrible by NOT having an AWB, as the killer tried to use a drum mag and it jammed, stopping his rampage.

Newtown details are still unknown. I'll wait for more details. I can tell you this; if he was well acquainted with his gun, he could have changed 10 round mags out and killed just as many people.

A new AWB isn't the answer. But even if, by miracles upon miracles, it is passed, it will not stop one person from being killed.

The sale of new high capacity magazines were banned by the AWB - those were used in all of those shootings - thus the weapons used were covered! They appealed to those shooters, your counter-factual of they were so skilled argument not withstanding. Your toys are killing the rest of us. Why won't you reach deep into your soul and pull out those shreds of humanity that I know you have, that conclude this is not a zero-sum race to the bottom?

We the people will require, demand...rational limits. None of us is coming to grab your guns.

First, it would be highly impractical.

But we have a right to regulate ownership, for our collective safety, internal tranquility and peace of mind. You can still hunt, you can target shoot. So I will have to reload my magazine more often at the range, big fracking deal.

Because a 10/22 is semi-auto. You can get 30 round mags, and hollow point bullets.

The regulations will not go as far as they did in Australia, but they are coming for similar reasons.

63. FP 29 was a treatise on how best to maintain the militia.. so?

It says nothing about the scope of the right protected by the second amendment.

Hamilton wanted strong federal control over the militia, as opposed to the anti-federalists who preferred a decentralized approach. The compromise between these two viewpoints was eventually written into the constitution's militia language- federal control, but officers from the states.

You keep repeating "FP29!" as though it says something else.

Please be quoting me the relevant section, yes?

84. No.

One example is the Domestic Violence Offender Gun Ban.

<snip>

Another example is the Domestic Violence Offender Gun Ban, where firearms prohibitions were imposed on those convicted of misdemeanor domestic-violence offenses and on subjects of restraining orders (which do not require criminal conviction). These individuals can now be sentenced to up to ten years in a federal prison for possession of a firearm, regardless of whether the weapon was legally possessed when the law was passed. Among those whom the law is claimed to have affected is a father who was convicted of a misdemeanor of child abuse in connection with a spanking of his child, because anyone convicted of child abuse now faces a lifetime firearms prohibition. The law has been legally upheld because it is considered regulatory, not punitive; it is a status offense.^ United States v. Emerson, 270 F.3d 203 (5th Cir. 2001).

So your problem is JUST with the 7.62 by 39 and the .223 rounds? Why didn't you just say that you're ok with ar/ak pattern rifles but just not in those calibers?

"So this is a military weapon." "The place this belongs is in the barracks."

Except the military does not use the civilian legal semi auto ar-15 or the ak/sks pattern rifles. But you know that, dont you.

"You can't bring a deer down otherwise, I feel sorry."

The debate has nothign what so ever to do with hunting. That much, I know you know.

FWIW, the largest caliber functional rifle (I have antique .22s but theyre not functional) I own is .17 caliber rimfire, and I don't own any centerfire rifles at all - nor do I desire to.

On edit: The ar-15 and AK pattern civilian legal semi-auto rifles use a VASTLY different firing mechanism than their true military relatives.

Rights exist in tension with each other and balancing those rights is the function of govt. How is it that you think the children in Newtown didn't have the right to life? What makes you think your rights are more important than everyone else's? You actually think your right to stockpile WMD is more important than the rest of our rights to life and equal protection?

So why are you in the NRA if you aren't Republican? They are a rightwing organization aligned with the GOP. LaPierre lied about the President at CPAc. What kind of Democrat aligns themselves with a GOP organization?

Kids getting murdered is a side effect of the gun-"freedom" you promote.

It's what we have to live with -- or die with -- if we accept your definitions of freedom.

If we permit fast food, we as a society have to live with obesity that could have been prevented. (There is obesity that can't be prevented as well.) This is a consequence of a certain kind of freedom.

Dead children is the consequence of a different kind of freedom. It's the kind of freedom you advocate for.

With that said, yes, dead children are a statistic improbably, yet entirely likely situation that will occur because of the freedoms we enjoy as Americans. It is a terrible truth. But no one has proposed a single realistic solution that will prevent these tragedies. But we have a lot of tragedies in this country.

We allow unhealthy food, therefore we will have fat, sick, diabetic people who will cost us money and die sad deaths.

We allow cigarettes, therefore we will have people who have COPD, lung cancer, and will cost us money and die.

We allow automobiles, therefore we will have accidents, and people of all races and creeds will die.

We allow pools, rivers, lakes and bathtubs. Therefore, children and adults will drown.

Being free has terrible consequences. Sorry if you can't understand that. But your only solution is to make us less free, and that isn't a real solution at all.

Unless we are going to go to bolt operated rifles and revolvers, a shooter well oriented with their gun can change mags, reload, and continue killing.

3 10 round magazines can kill just as many people as one 30 round and they only take seconds to change.

118. Try this definition for an assault weapon:

 

Any semi-automatic weapon that is a military knock-off. Any civilian weapon that looks similar to the Rambo inducing fantasy, killing machine in the graphic below.

All that is necessary to turn those weapons into fully automatic weapons, for all intents and purposes, is a bump stock. Then add a one-hundred round drum. And they are perfectly legal. Rabbit hunting anyone? How can you miss?
Why would any sane civilian need one or more of these? They were designed to kill human beings and they do that with high efficiency.

Forget folding and adjustable stocks and bayonet lugs. Those are just detractions from the real problem. The problem is the Rambo and Dirty Harry mentality that populate places likes of the gungeon. Or worse yet, the public streets, with one of their sweet, semi-auto babies*, under their arm-pit. Ready to stop the next Sandy Point.

88. Many rational gun owners would disagree.

You don't need an assault type weapon with a high capacity magazine to do ANY of those things. I want reasonale restrictions.

91. What is an "Assault type weapon"

A semi-automatic weapon?

Well then hand guns, plinking rifles, and pellet guns all fall under those rules.

Maybe you mean the Ar-15 style weapons which seems to be the soup de hate this week - even under the 1994 AWB AR-15s were still legal.

Infantry battle riffles sold in the civilian market, even with a much smaller selector switch than their friends in the barracks. Oh this covers the sks and the rest of them too.

The NRA is a wing of the GOP! Their board of directors has Ted Nugent as a member! No real liberal can support the NRA. They lied about Obama in 2008 and 2012! Their membership is 85% right wing nuts! Read more fucking quotes from Wayne. Really stupid!

This is one of the few issues I break with the Democratic party on.

I'm sorry that you don't like it. That doesn't make me any less of a Democrat. Period.

If the Democratic party would stop making a play against the 2a,the NRA would become useless.

Remain on their board is NOT a democrat! Simple as that! Imagine the Red Cross or Planned Parenthood allowing a board member who trashed the president monthly!

You must be clueless if you missed about 100 statements from the NRA about Obama this last election cycle! Not counting them spending millions to defeat GREAT progressives!

Wow, how you can not get kicked off here amazes me!

66. Being free has terrible consequences, IndyDem.

Sorry if you can't understand that. But your only solution is to make us less free, and that isn't a real solution at all.

"Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither." Franklin

When someone walks around carrying a gun, it makes us all less free.

The NRA has confused the issue. It has fooled gullible people into believing that Freedom equals, Freedom From Government.

But Freedom equals, Freedom From Oppression.

And guns create oppression.

"An armed society is a polite society," say the pro-gun madmen. Which means: an armed society is a society in which people cannot exercise their freedom of speech, for fear of oppressors with guns.

If you argue in favor of carrying guns for self-defense, that is a security argument. It is an argument saying, "everyone needs to sacrifice liberty for my security."

"Those Who Sacrifice Liberty For Security Deserve Neither," you quoted from Franklin.

Please stop with the projection. You are the one who wants to sacrifice liberty for security.

Except that security has consequences. Dead children. Massacres. Innocents caught in the crossfire of criminals. All of this is ok with you, by your own admission.

If you support people carrying guns, you are opposed to liberty.

An armed society is a society where no one is free.

Those of us who believe in liberty will continue to look down on those of you who quake in terror, supporting oppression, and silencing dissent with your guns.

By the way, do you think Black communities, Hasidic communities, Quaker communities, and Amish communities should have the right to set their own standards within their communities?

Or are you a racist too?

That is a heavily armed society...where people open carry.

Tell me, you are ok living in a society where people need to buy bullet resistant backpacks for their kids, and where we could fit them with level III-A body armor? It's true. That's your concept of freedom?

The preamble.

We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America.


Tell me, how are more guns ensuring domestic tranquility?

You have just stated that the inevitable and acceptable cost of your "freedom" is this kind of tragedy. Your "freedom," Indydem, is a fucking hobby, and your defense of the violent deaths of children as an acceptable result of your hobby is abhorrent.

Unbelievable.

76. Let's get some perspective then, shall we:

Swimming pools are a hobby- More children drown every year in swimming pools than are killed by guns. Swimming pools serve no other purpose than recreational activity. BAN THEM.

ATV's and Snowmobiles are hobbies - Dozens of children die every year in accidents related to their use. BAN THEM

TOYS are a hobby. A dozen kids die from toys EVERY YEAR. BAN THEM.

Cigarettes are a hobby - how many children will end up developing cancer from 2nd hand smoke?? BAN THEM

Alcohol is a hobby - Children die in drunk driving accidents every year - BAN IT.

You see owning a gun as a hobby with no regards to its practical uses. Yet all of these other things that literally have no practical use whatsoever are widely accepted.

Your perspective is the problem.

97. When kids die from toys, the toys ARE banned.

Children die in drunk driving accidents, drunk driving IS banned.

Since you said you ARE the NRA -- not a member, but THE NRA -- I know you like to trick people into thinking that banning is the only proposed solution.

I think cigarettes are the solution. What happened to them, anyway.

Smokers are rare now. Because smoking is no longer considered cool. It took both government and private citizens to stigmatize smoking.

I know you're stricken with fear at the "gun-grabbers" you've been flaming throughout this thread. I don't want to grab guns. I just think guns should be registered, tracked, and stigmatized, and I want people and communities to have the FREEDOM to disagree with the NRA.

Yes, the enemies of freedom want to make it impossible for people and communities to disagree with them. They want to make sure colleges, schools, and businesses can't set their own standards.

But you, the NRA, are a devoted enemy of a free society. You want to end free speech -- where people carry guns, there is no freedom of speech -- and you want to strip every community, group, individual, and location of determining its own standards.

I never said it was acceptable.

No one thinks these things are "ok". The fantasy that you anti-gun folks have woven around us is deplorable. As if we would trade these kids lives for a Bushmaster 500 in a heartbeat.

These things are not acceptable. But they are inevitable.

Terrible things will happen. That is a part of life. Living in a fantasy world where everything will always be sunshine and rainbows is lunacy.

99. The Constitution does not deny the government requiring EVERY weapon to be registered,

to my knowledge. I deserve to know if my next door neighbor has an arsenal...legal or not. Or that it is not properly secured, or that kids get drunk and party while parents are gone, etc. My dog or cat might get out and they mistake it for a burgler...blam blam. Or neighborhood kids be wandering around...that happens quite a bit.

No, I would definitely not feel safe if I knew every single one of my neighbors and their young adult kids...boys or girls...had one or more weapons intended to kill. And imagine Black Friday ... armed and dangerous. But it is American...we go to other countries and kill to make peace. Go figure.

People scoff, but it could be done in stages, and mean time halt new sales.

And as for the schools, you're going to find a very short line of qualified and talented teachers ... male or female ... lining up for their state-issued/required handgun and the classes and shooting practice and all it would require. And the school robbery attempts and other riff raff that guns automatically bring, would cost even more money and problems.

Last of all...never heard this mentioned... but the school district will likely not even be able to liability insurance, let alone afford it.

Register and tax them and monitor them and re-register every year or two...require a license be carried at all times...

...just follow the rules for the privilege and enforcement of driving an automobile on a public road. Then, I'd be OK with Open Carry...but not concealed. It helps us non-gun people to know who to steer clear of.
