"Fast Efficient People Killing Machines"- Brady Campaign
From the Brady Campaign Website:


"The Assault Weapons Ban will expire next year unless Congress and President Bush renew it. The NRA is using its muscle to block legislation that will renew the law. If the NRA gets its way, police officers on your streets will soon be outgunned by fast, efficient, people-killing machines like AK-47s and Uzis that have been banned for a decade">.....

Last time I checked LAW ENFORCEMENT OFFICERS WERE EXCEMPT FROM THE 1986 MACHINE GUN BAN AND 1994 AWB.

So if they are "outgunned" that their fucking police chief's fault!!

1. Unfortunately...
the cops having bayonet lugs on their rifles doesn't do much to increase their actual firepower...

2. Let's up the level of domestic terrorism. That's what America really needs
Let's have an arms race! Let's make law enforcement buy and carry the latest miltary rifles. Let's force every American to be able to deliver cover fire because his gun wacko neighbor carrys around an AK47. More guns and more powerful guns will make USA even more like a third world nation and less like a civilized "advanced" nation.

5. And so it begins....
the short descent into the pits of your hate. The sad thing is, you drag the rest of us down there with you.

8. Yes I could....
Between my brothers and I, we have over 30 guns, about 5 of which are "verrrrrrry scary looking" assault weapons.

So far, to date, here's the score:
Bullets fired: thousands
People killed, injured, maimed, or psychologically damaged: none

7. Bill, Bill, Bill....
....there aren't more dangerous weapons lurking out there than are available right now.

The AWB is just a sham, window dressing for a larger agenda.

9. Locking
If members of this board can't engage in rational discussion without decent into personal taunts, the moderators will lock threads to prevent their inevitable decent into the gutter.

Please feel free to re-post and continue in a civil manner.
