2. That's pre-12/14 thinking.

That deflection doesn't matter anymore.

3. okay... You lost me... I'll admit that I'm confused...

 

first of all, I like the term "gunhadist..."

second, until we can determine what an "Assault weapon" is, we can't really make laws to regulate them...

Look, things are going to be defined by the background. At one point, the katana I have would be defined as a "battle weapon." Today, I might get a pass during a conflict while both sides were laughing.

Personally, I can't think of any reason to have a 30+ round magazine.

Mind you, a good 3D printer can make all the parts for a firearm... just depends on the plastics/resins that you use...

10. okay... so you've given me an example... and I agree with you...

 

personally, I think we ought to restrict extended magazines to police and military only.

Also, I'm for committing the violent crazies.

THAT would stop the massacres.

4. God, I hate that obfuscation. All of us know what they are, if the damn gun cultists didn't push



the envelop in their quest for ever more lethal weapons, we wouldn't have to go through this crap time after time.

So, let's just keep it simple and ban all semi-automatic weapons, period. The gun cultists should be able to understand that.


While we are at it, let's end "stand your ground laws" because the gun carriers don't seem to understand that either.

13. okay...

 

would there be a restriction on the number of revolvers in a house?

remember, if the usual hit rate is one out of six, then you need a full revolver for 1 bad guy.

if a group goes house hunting, then you'd need one revolver per bad guy.

(and no, I spare NO sympathy for a home intruder. They know the risks...)

14. As long as they were all registered with the BATFE and subject to private sale background checks

with a permanent searchable database of ownership.

and a reapeal of gun liabliity laws...

You can keep all the loaded revolvers around your kids that you want.

yup

16. Then the machinist and the customer can be charged with a felony and fined - massively

and have their guns confiiscated - for life,

a fate worse than death for a Gun Nut.

yup

Not everybody will INVITE LEOs into their shop. (I do, but I'm PROUD of my shop. That, and the ATFE has the best coffee and danishes...)
